I have stayed here on my own on 8 separate occasions in the last year, the most recent being 19 December 2012. I return because it's lovely & warm in winter, a convenient location, being close to the beach and I can walk to it from the railway station. To get to the centre of Margate, I walk along the promenade or catch a bus from just outside the B&B. I have no issues with the rooms not being ensuite, as they have a washbasin, plenty of hot water & there is more than 1 shower room and toilets available. Yes, the decoration & bed linen is a mix of patterns, vintage & quirky, but it doesn't bother me, as it is all clean. I just want a good night's sleep, which I get. I watched the Olympics opening ceremony on the TV in the summer without problems, once I'd found the channel. The choice of tea, coffee, cereal, cooked breakfast & toast, butter & jam is more than adequate for someone like me who usually just has toast & coffee. Any issues, like more milk, are quickly dealt with by the helpful staff - you just have to ask. This is the best value B & B I have found in the Margate area, with winter rates which are unbeatable. If you want a posher place, then you'll have to pay a lot more than these rates.
