We spent one reasonable night in the Longreach B&B on Easter weekend 2007. We hadn't heard about this B&B, but were put there by the Premier Travel Inn across the road because of a problem with our room. The B&B is alright, not as bad as an earlier review suggests. It is just outside Whitstable, on a busy road near a roundabout. Not a particularly romantic location and quite noisy, but fine for a night away. On the whole, our stay was not unpleasant. We received a double room near the road, with nice burgundy and yellow decorations and a big ensuite shower room. The proprietor was friendly, though we were left to phone for our own taxi into town. We paid £50 up front for the room by credit card, and another (refundable) cash deposit of £10 for a key. Next time we're in Whitstable, we'll try another location because of some inconveniences. Most importantly, we didn't sleep very well because we found the mattress to be uncomfortable (we agree with the previous reviewer in this respect) as it was too soft, and the room to be too warm. The bathroom had a (closed) door to some adjoining room. With the walls being thin, this didn't make it feel private. Smaller points are the lack of a reasonable mirror in the bathroom, the lack of bedside lamps and waste basket in the bedroom, poor TV reception, and a shower that dind't stay hot long enough for two people. We can't comment on the breakfast at this B&B, as we received a complimentary one from the Premier Travel Inn.
