person found this review helpful

Left a very sour taste to what should have been a nice holiday. The landlord employed unfair and underhand tactics to take as much money from our deposit as he could, despite us causing no damage and leaving the place spotless. I had to battle for weeks just to avoid him keeping almost the entire £100 deposit which he used...

Management response:

We have been going for two years and have had excellent reviews - in fact we haven't had any bad reviews. We have a good relationship with all our guests and many return. My husband and I were very upset to have to hold back some deposit money. We have never taken a penny in two years from anyone's deposit....

Also good for waterside activities being a few moments from the beach. We used it as a base to explore the area and would thoroughly recommend both the cottage...

Harbour Cottage is an absolutely lovely base for a stay in Whitstable. It is perfectly located just a few minutes walk from the centre of Whitstable and immediately opposite the fish market and Crab & Winkle restaurant. The cottage is very pretty on both the outside and in. It is tastefully decorated throughout. The bed was very comfy and we...

About the neighbourhood
Whitstable is the gem on the North Kent coast. Just one and a half hours from the centre of London by road or rail. Famous for its oysters, the regatta and its beach huts: frequented by overseas visitors, the town has become 'the place to stay'. Speciality shops, good range of restaurants (celebrity chef Richard Phillips at the Pearson’s Arms and the famous Wheeler’s Oyster Bar) and two Michelin-starred ones within easy distance. Local pubs have interesting live music. Whitstable also has a thriving arts vibe. Although Whitstable has become busier, it has a tasteful and relaxed, chic feel to it. All based in a uniquely preserved seaside conservation area. It is reputed to have more independently owned shops in the high street than any other high street in England. The town feature... more
