The Old Bank House is situated in the very centre of the lively Margate old town. Many beautiful shops and cafes around. 1 Minute walk to the seafront. Spacious rooms, nice living room and kitchen.

The house had all we needed, close to great pubs and bars, cafes and restaurants the Turner gallery and beach. We liked the rough edges of the town and the vintage shops in the old town. Don't miss the Shell Grotto and Tudor House at the weekend, We hope to be back some time. Parking at the house is tight...

Management response:

Thank you for taking time to write a review , and glad you enjoyed the house and Margate. The poorly draining sink has been sorted . Hope to see you at The Old Bank House again.
