Westgrange House B & B
Ranked #9 of 10 Herne Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 July 2012

First impressions were not good - rusting car on the drive, mound of mud outside front door.
Entrance hall dirty, gaping hole in ceiling. Owners still cleaning and hoovering at 5.30 in the evening. Our room was small. Furniture old and decrepit. I had to ask proprietor to clean toilet as it clearly hadn't been done. Walls were dirty, finger marks everywhere. Very noisy from 7 am onwards, no dining room, breakfast set up in hallway! So everything could be heard from our room. Bed - terribly uncomfortable. Cereal packets lined the window sill. Breakfast ok'sh but bacon been microwaved - like leather.Very expensive (£95 - reduced from £120) for this establishment. Website states 1.2 miles from Whitstable - it's 12 miles!! Would never have booked if we knew this.
Who awarded them 4 stars?!! This should be awarded 2 star rating. Never again.

Room Tip: No tips, all rooms are above hall - so no good rooms

Have just spent the weekend here and have to say Tony and Margaret were brilliant and really made the weekend special. I was staying here to go to a friends party, Tony even offered to pick me up, which was really sweet. The room was lovely, clean and spacious, could not fault it. I am really surprised at the previous review as the breakfast was amazing, I am a vegetarian and when Margaret found out, she went out of her way to ensure I didn't miss out, she got some vege sausages and vege bacon for me, yum yum! There was also cereal, fresh fruit and yoghurt on offer, so not sure what else you would expect at the breakfast table. They were also very flexible as I wanted a late breakfast on the sunday (to allow for a hangover) and they were more than happy to oblige. Any lack of information pack was easily overcome as Tony and Margaret are very approachable and gave me all the information required. Will definately stay again, feel as if I have made two new friends. Thank you.

First impressions, NO sign, how hard can that be to have one?, large pile of soil at front, broken porch door handle and missing porch ceiling panel. We decided to give it a go and Margaret & Tony were most welcoming. The room was large, but basic overlooking the rear garden c/w metal sheeting! No information folder, no hairdryer, no Health & safety information in room and where was the guest patio area? Lack of information meant we did not know Breakfast times or what meals were available, it was assumed that a Full English was eveybodys choice! Tony & Margaret are friendly & approachable, but seemed to be unaware of the B&Bs shortcomings. It is in a good location but that cannot disguise the fact that a 4* it ain't!!

From the time I turned up on the doorstep until the time I left Tony and Margaret (the owners) made me feel welcomed.There was attention to detail, and they were quite flexible on guests requirements. The room was clean, and neat, and even though during the time I was there, they had a number of other guests, they took time out to talk to everyone, and make it quite relaxing. I will recommend this place to anyone wishing for a peaceful, and quiet place to stay.Thanks Tony and Margaret, and I do hope to visit again.

Great and quiet location (not far from Herne Bay, Whitstable and Canterbury).
Tony and Margaret gave us some great recommendations while staying at their B&B. We went to Broadstairs from there which is superb and only 30 minutes away. The room was clean and nicely decorated and enjoyed an excellent breakfast. Would definitely go back, Christelle et Olivier.
