A unique and extremely well-run B&B. The decor throughout is stunning and we loved our room (1): original exposed floorboads and sash windows, high ceilings, beautiful vintage furniture and an enormous bathroom with walk-in shower and roll-top bath. Liam and Louise are sensitive hosts who have put a great deal of thought and care into giving visitors a truly relaxing and luxurious experience. Lots of little extras: a good selection of DVDs and books in the room, a gift set of REN toiletries on departure, a 24-hour visitor parking permit so that you don't have to keep feeding the meter... We liked being able to come and go as we pleased, and our favourite part of the stay was the wonderfully presented and delicious breakfast brought to your room at a time of your choice. An extensive menu with quality produce is offered (from the full English to smoked salmon with cream cheese on toast, pastries, porridge, delicious fruit bowls and proper hot chocolate), and you can select your choice the evening before and enjoy it in the privacy of your room; skipping the awkward morning conversations with fellow visitors common to many small B&Bs. All in all, The Reading Rooms is the perfect place for a relaxing and romantic trip to the coast. Margate itself is a town on the up, with lots of great reclaimed furniture and vintage clothes shops, quirky places to eat and many beaches nearby, as well as the Turner Contemporary.
