Thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful guest house. The décor is beautiful and the room and bathroom spacious. Susan treated us very well and was very courteous and friendly. The breakfast was also very good. Will definitely return.

This was our 6th visit to Margate Place Guest House and now has a really homely feeling. Situated in an ideal location for walks along the beach and to the boardwalk, restuarants and shops. The rooms are comfortable, pool area very relaxing, staff helpful and friendly and breakfast excellent. Airport is only 10 mins away and there is a wealth of places to visit and enjoy from this base. We will certainly be back. Thanks to Cornell and all her staff for another great trip.

I really enjoyed being at Margate Place Guest House in P.E. My room was well appointed and very cosy. The staff was always friendly and nice. I felt like being at home. The beach, restaurants, the supermarket and the "Boardwalk" were a 5 to 10 min. walk away. The airport, and the centre of the town could be easily reached by taxi in 10 min.

We had a fantastic time at Margate. The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was awesome, and the room was clean and cosy! The beach and malls are all within walking distance in the safe neighborhood.
If ever we are back in PE....we will definitely stay there and we'd recommend it to anyone :)

A BIG thank you to Alex, Susan and staff.

It was a "service" experience we have never had before, from the time we started to enquire to the booking out! Nothing was ever too much trouble.

Alex you made us feel like family with your warm heart, smile and conversation. Susan, you constantly ensured our rooms were taken care of and even helping us to book a last minute, one night Christmas Day accommodation for my precious brother and family all the way from C.T. The staff, thank you that you made us believe again that there are people you can trust in this world. Leaving valuables lying around all day only to get back and discover IT'S ALL STILL THERE!..., unlike Jhb!

My husband and I have decided for our future short breaks when we go to PE, we will go back to Margate Place and just by the way,..Guest Room No 2 is OURS!

With lots of love and appreciation!
