What makes this apartment unique

It will be a totally unique experience staying in this splendid historical Grade 11 listed property beside the sea with all the benefits of secure parking and 24 hour helpful security guards.. The vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows (overlooking the lanscaped grounds) make the apartment light and air. A real pleasure to come back to after a day out.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely holiday exploring Margate and the surrounding areas. The apartment was excellent- clean, tidy, spacious and well decorated (love the seaside stuff!). The location of the apartment is great, just a short walk from the beach and lots of shops. The underground parking is also a bonus. We also found everything we needed in the apartment- tea, coffee, plastic bags, cooking things etc. which is handy and saved the hassle and money of having to buy the extra things!

The weather has been extremely kind to us this week - glorious sunshine throughout. We recommend taking a look around Margate Old Town with its museum full of local history and also the Shell Grotto. Trips to Ramsgate , Broadstairs and Dover were also enjoyable. The folder of leaflets was very handy in finding places to go . Thank you.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous Margate apartment. The key exchange was simple and the apartment had everything we needed. Elaine was very quick to respond to queries and did everything she could to ensure we had what we needed before we arrived. The apartment was a very restful place and we instantly felt at home there. It was very clean and well equipped with lots of information on local attractions and eateries too which was helpful. Our 3 year old was very happy with the toys and DVDs he found. The Royal Seabathing Hospital complex was a great place to stay in terms of location and the 24 hour security and allocated parking were an added bonus. The only negative points were the over sensitive smoke alarm in the kitchen (it went off twice when we used the toaster but we didn't burn it...perhaps relocate the toaster?) & the lack of recycling on site.

Location wise, we really liked this side of town as it was very close to the gorgeous Margate beaches and all the other attractions were very easy to walk to. If we return to Margate we'd definitely stay at Elaine's apartment again.

Thanks for a lovely weekend!

Excellent baby-friendly apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were about to give up on finding baby-friendly holiday accommodation in Margate when we found this place and we're so glad we did. Everything was thought of - highchair, cot, changing mat - which meant we could carry everything we needed on public transport to get there. The apartment is beautiful and our son loved running around and playing in the lounge. The owners even arranged for some sunshine in April so we could go on the beach!

Will definitely be back.

Lovely flat!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice flat with all facilities and great decoration. Well located, just minutes from the beach. Elaine always answered quickly to our questions. The town itself is pretty run down and hefore Easter there isn't many people around and not all the ships are open. We were there on Easter Friday though as well and the weather was great, the beach started getting busy so there was a nice vibe to the town. Too bad it was our last day!

The fact that there is a baby chair and travel cot makes it easier to travel with a toddler.

All in all a pleasant stay! ;)

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the trouble to do this review. Really pleased that you appreciated the work we have put into the apartment to ensure an enjoyable holiday. And that you were able to use the baby things.We have since bought an additional mattress for the travel cot for comfort. As you discovered Margate comes to life when the sun comes out- especially the beach which is one of the safest beaches for children. I hope you stay again. Elaine

Beautiful apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment sleeps four,it only has one bedroom,there's a sofa bed in the kitchen dining area,the main bedroom is a good size,very clean and decorated to a high standard, the only downside is its location ,Margate is a run down British beach resort,I wouldn't visit there again.Botany bay and Cliftonsville is a much nicer area..There is no seaview in this apartment.

Owner's Response: Delighted you found the apartment clean and decorated to a high standard. It is marketed as a one bedroom apartment with sofa bed in lounge. The Seabathing Hospital backs onto the beach and the sea is just seconds away. I suspect you did not see Margate at it's best on such a bitterly cold February day. Margate boasts a world class stretch of beach. Dreamland signals the continuation of this vibrant regeneration, already well under way with the Turner Contemporary and the revival of the old town.

Great flat

  • 4 of 5

The pictures are accurate - a reasonably sized, very clean flat in a great-looking gated community right on the coast. We stayed over Christmas as part of a holiday from Singapore (nice to get cold weather for a change). There is no lift, but the flat is only on the first floor so that is not much of a problem. Only one negative - which is unfortunately beyond the control of the helpful owners: at least one of the neighbours is a heavy smoker - so much so that the whole corridor outside the flat is unpleasant to walk through. The smoke seeps under the door to the flat too, but the worst of the smell can be dealt with by opening the windows from time to time and keeping a wet towel on the floor as a draught excluder. I'm sorry to mention this, but it did mar an otherwise very pleasant break.

Owner's Response: Roderick -delighted you enjoyed your stay but disappointed that you did not mention the smoke when we corresponded after your stay (I wrote asking if anything would have improved your stay and you gave feedback and said that no improvements were necessary). Chris (Security) also told you during your stay to contact him if there were any problems (he would have spoken to people had you raised it). After reading this review I made enquiries this morning and it transpired someone had smoked in a neighbouring apartment and I have been told that the problem has now been resolved. I plan to check the apartment this weekend. Elaine

Most Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

A really good location which had the "wow" factor as soon as we turned into the drive.

The apartment was very clean and tidy and had just about everything you need.

I am not sure whether the apartment requires so much in the way of crockery and cutlery.

I will have no problem recommending this to others and will certainly be keen to return as there is a lot in Margate and Ramsgate that we didn't have time to see.

Good secure underground parking on site with 24hr security.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to do this great review. I am delighted that you saw the wow factor of the Seabathing Hospital development. I also think it every time the gates open. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. Should you decide to return I will let you know about the other seaside resorts in the area to visit. The well equipped kitchen is mainly for benefit of the families (we get a lot) as well as those staying for a week or longer in the winter and over Christmas. I hope to see you again soon and thanks again. Best wishes, Elaine Ruse
