“Beautiful, spacious, tastefully furnished apartment with magnifenct sea views, close to sandy beaches and cliff walks.”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The Wishing Towers is a cut above most holiday rentals. It is a beautifully furnished, spacious 3-bed apartment with a stunning roof terrace that has magnificent sea views. It is located between Broadstairs and Margate in Kent within reach of some truly gorgeous sandy beaches. Our party consisted of 2 adults and 3 children under 10 and we had a perfect time.

The apartment felt like 'home' for the week we were there - more than just a place to rest our heads after a busy day out. The closest beach is no more than a few hundred yards away with a selection of beaches, both the busy public kind and smaller tucked away coves, a short drive from the Wishing Towers.

This was my first ever holiday along this coastline and I would go back in a heartbeat, especially if I could stay at the Wishing Towers again.

“Perfect apartment within walking distance of Margate and right on the Viking trail”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a really enjoyable 5 nights in this high quality apartment, it was very clean, light and spacious, with a lovely roof terrace. The location was great for us, it's about a 20 minute walk into Margate to the Old Town and beach etc, so it's far enough away to avoid the noise and traffic of a seaside town, but near enough to very easily to get to, and it's right on the Viking trail, the cycle path that goes all round the Thanet coast. It was no problem for a short stay, but worth mentioning is there is no dishwasher or washing machine. We loved this apartment and would highly recommend. With thanks to Suzy the owner.

“Picture perfect”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

On arrival we were given a warm welcome by owner Suzy, who gave us a tour of this amazing property. Lots of space in the apartment over both floors. Panoramic views from every room and the outside roof space is the icing on the cake. The location was perfect for us, nice and quiet with Tesco supermarket only a 5 minute walk away. I would recommend to anyone thinking of staying, don't hesitate you will not be disappointed. We hope to book again soon!.

We had a wonderful few days at the Wishing Tower and didnt want to leave . A really unusual building , with panoramic views from every room .The top two bedrooms and the roof terrace are especially peaceful and tranquil . We lay on the bed watching the sun set with sea gulls flying around .It was like being up in the clouds with them .
Sandy beaches a few minutes walk away .Margate maybe 20 minutes walk -with all it has to offer -a fun walk alongside the crashing waves . We went to the Lighthouse bar on the Harbour Arm and also the Lifeboat Ale and Cider House which has lovely real ales and great food . We shall be returning !
