We have friends in Margate and the apartment is perfect for us to stay in as we like our own space.5 minutes from the railway station no one has to drive.We love lying in bed listening to the sound of the waves.Weather was a bit wet and windy this visit but dreamland had their undercover ice rink.Theres plenty shopping opportunities Bluewater being a fab one.I just love to relax when we get there and often just wander into town at our own pace,wander round the vintage shops and The Turner Gallery followed by hot chocolate at Cafe G.Weve christened it our happy place x
No-one is going to go back for a third time if the place isn't really good, so you can guess we like it. Since our last visit and review, a handrail has now been installed on the stairs to the roof. This was much needed for safety, and for us "seniors", and its made a huge difference.
Although it wasn't in bad shape, the whole apartment has been redecorated and new curtains fitted which has freshened the whole place up. A new L-shaped sof has also been put in which was very comfortable.
We've been there now in spring, summer and autumn, and each time the Margate weather has been very good - better than home on each occasion. After returning from our May 2017 holiday, friends who had been to a Greek Island at the smae time were quite put out that our tan's were better than theirs!
One of the great draws of this apartment is the roof "terrace". The view of the beach is wonderful, so you don't need to leave the apartment for some relaxation. However a walk on the prom - either direction - is rewarding, and there are restaurants (reviewed in trip adviser) in Margate worth visiting.
We are looking forward already to our 2018 visit!
Spent three nights in this cosy apartment, which was within easy walking distance of the the town, restaurants and beach. Having a parking space was also a bonus. Comfy beds, fluffy towels and enough in the kitchen to cook etc. if needs be. Limited TV channels, but we were out most of the time anyway, so not really an issue for us. Owners next door, so on hand if needs be. Would recommend this to a couple or family of four. Owner communication was very good. All in all, very happy.
Very approachable host, nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was very clean and had everything you needed for your holiday stay and more. There was plenty of storage and we did not experience issues with wardrobe space. Also we did not have a problem with plugging in hair dryers by irons etc, there were plenty of sockets etc. This apartment has an excellent roof Terrance with great views overlooking the sea.
There is free parking on site and very secure, in fact one of the most secure places we've stayed in holiday rentals. We noticed in one review there were issues with the underground parking that it was not well lit up and smelt, however we did not experience any of these issues.
The lovely beach is just a short stroll away.
We are looking forward to our next stay in margate at this apartment and would highly recommend it to others.
Flat was near Margate and complex and surrounding gardens in the complex were well kept. The flat is nice the furniture is of a good quality. Was very near beach but you cannot access it from flat you have to walk all way round. The kitchen was well equipped and clean. Lovely sunsets from conservatory and was nice for bbqs. Don't get me wrong we had a lovely holiday and the flat is nice but certainly not 5 star.
This flat initially seemed lovely. On closer inspection it had far too many knick knacks and the conservatory was cluttered and not very clean. The penthouse conservatory actually is nice but very overlooked by two neighbouring conservatories. No dressing table or plug near a mirror in one bedroom (my pet hate ) and no wardrobe in other bedroom. Toilet in main bathroom was constantly blocked no window either so was very claustrophobic.Surrounding area outside of flat complex was very shabby. Underground carpark was badly lit and smelt of urine.
