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

Just what the doctor ordered . Thank you :-)

What a wonderful little place for the weekend. The building takes your breath away from the outside. The flat was immaculate with all the mode cons. Very friendly , had a few chats with the neighbours , and Security couldn't have been more helpful if they tried. Easy to walk into town , although we did get a few taxis back. But was only £5 , worth it when your feet hurt. Wonderful for a weekend get away .

Thank you , will definitely consider another visit in the future.

Great Stay in Very Nice Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was generously equipped and pretty much everything worked well. Chris, the on-site manager, was very helpful when there was a problem with a TV. The underground parking facility was handy. There were a number of useful retail facilities within a 2 minute walk including a pub, Tescos, Indian restaurant and Chinese and Pizza take-aways. The main beach and retail centre was a 5 to 10 minute walk. We stayed over a particularly hot (!) August bank holiday - the apartment was of a comfortable temperature throughout.

An excellent base to explore Kent

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is excellent. Very clean and a good place from which to explore the surrounding area. Margate is a sorry reflection of better times. Everywhere looks run down and uncared for. The beach was kept clean though. We spent most of our time in Broadstairs, Cantebury and Sandwich. We had a lovely time.

Great accommodation!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is spacious, clean, quiet and well equipped, about the only thing that would have helped us would be a tumble drier as we had been traveling for a few weeks when we got to Margate, it would have speeded up our washing, not a major drama, there were ample drying racks and our washing dried during the day. We were in the area to visit friends and family so didn't make a lot of use of the nearby beach or other attractions, but they were very convenient for the holidaymaker, a short walk to the sands and amusements.
