Reviewed 7 January 2014

I always have a wonderful time at the Albatross Guest House.
I especially enjoyed it when I took my family there in December, the hospitality was awesome.
I would recommend The Albatross to anyone who is looking for a the best Guest house on the south coast.
From the warm welcome you receive to the food that is prepared to the wonderful clean rooms The Albatros is the place to stay!!!!

Regards Brandon

Thanks to Bessie and Andre this has been decided as the best holiday we've ever had in Margate. We've stayed at various other venues on the South Coast but this was the most awesome holiday ever. We we treated with warm welcomes, a wonderful hospitality in the arrangements and a fantastic holiday experience all around. The staff is fantastic, the breakfast exactly what you would like on a lavish holiday, and the rooms and house facilities the best you could ask for on a perfect family holiday experience. We will most certainly only ever stay in the Albatross on every return visit, and are already planning our next December holiday there! This is a must visit, for anyone who expects the best! Hard to beat what the Albatros offers in terms of value and excellence!

Room Tip: Room 1, 4, 11

Our family couldn’t ask for a better South Coast holiday experience. The Albatros Guest House staff and owners made us feel right at home, assisting in every regard and made our holiday a proper relaxing one. The rooms are fantastic with spectacular ocean views to which you can wake up to in the morning, joined with the loveliest breakfasts!! After a day filled with the South Coast activities you arrive back at a clean and tidy room with warm greetings from everyone. Andre and Bessie thank you for the best holiday in a long time and rest assure you will see us again!!

My daughter and i stayed at The Albertros for 6 nights in November 2013. Everything about the place was perfect, warm and welcoming. We had a wonderfull sea view from our comfortable room, which was cleaned on a daily basis. Nothing was too much trouble for our helpfull hosts, Andre and Bessie. They were no doubt, a big part of making our stay so special. The staff were great and all in all I would not hesitate in highly recommending The Albertros in Margate and hope we will be back one day soon.

We had a fabulous stay in the Albatros. Our hosts were so welcomingand the room was spectacular with beautiful views of the ocean and of whales spouting and breachingjust offshore. Wonderful breakfast, an honour bar, and free glasses of sherry made our time there most memorable. I recommend the Albatros unreservedly.
