“Excellent all round.”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Heron House was extremely comfortable and well-kitted out. We had a lovely welcome from Julie, the owner, and the location in town was perfect - just off the high street with very easy access to the seafront. It was a real home-from-home. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and there was good communal and 'alone' space.

“Feeling like home in Whitstable”
Reviewed June 7, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My parents, our two Labradors and I spent one week in Whitstable and Heron House was the perfect place to stay. We felt very comfortable and homelike. The house is well equipped and nicely done up. Mrs. FitzGerald Vitelli was quite friendly - via Email and in person – welcoming us with a tray of small, partly local, delicacies.
Moreover, the garden with its furniture invites for long dinners and conversations. It also is a great place for the dogs to sleep and play.

All in all Heron House is absolutely recommendable, we had a really nice time!

“Amazing experience from start to finish!!”

Our last day of our amazing 7 week stay in Heron House. We are so sad to leave and can't begin to say how enjoyable our visit has been to Whitstable. Heron House itself has truly been a home from home with everything provided we could possibly need in a perfect location to sample everything that Whitstable has to offer. From the moment we booked, the lovely owner Julie was extremely friendly and bent over backwards to ensure we had everything we needed for our stay and provided a lovely tray full of delicious cheeses and biscuits on our arrival to welcome us. Having our two large dogs with us we fully expected to be severely limited with where we could visit but Whitstable is SO dog friendly! Our dogs went everywhere with us!! We will certainly miss our many walks along the beaches to Seasalter and Tankerton, always with lunch, a slice of cake or dinner at the end to reward us for our efforts in the huge selection of dog friendly restaurants and coffee shops. Our absolute favourites for coffee and light bites were Elliots and No.15 in Whitstable and Jo Jo's in Tankerton have the most AMAZING cakes!! Dinner choices were only slightly limited because of our two furry friends but I can definitely recommend The Marine Hotel in Tankerton, The Hotel Continental and The Pearsons Arms all of which welcomed dogs with open arms. I also can't not mention the fantastic Local pub the Coach and Horses which became our usual Friday night haunt. The barman and locals were brilliant and Flo our bulldog became a little bit of a celebrity pub dog, wandering around asking for a stroke from anybody who was willing. Our nights here normally ended with a stroll down to the local Chinese The Four Seasons, or Indian, The Star of Bengal for a takeaway both of which served delicious food. I can't say enough good things about both our wonderful accommodation and Whitstable as a town. Even in the depths of winter it didn't fail to enchant us. We loved it so much we are even considering a permanent move there...now if that isn't an endorsement nothing is!!

“Lovely house in a great town”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We spent four nights at Heron House and are very impressed. The house has recently been renovated and everything has been done to a very high standard. And the house is spotlessly clean.
