"The apartment was lovely, clean and comfortable. Great view of the beach. The location was perfect for visiting the Old Town and The Turner Contemporary. We only went for one night but wished we could have stayed longer."

"The location of this apartment is perfect for exploring Margate Old Town, going on the main sands or the new Dreamland fun park. The accommodation itself is great, modern decoration with original features. Nice and clean and the views of an evening are great! Nice touches added by the owner - everything you need is included. The owner was great from start to finish, always keeping me posted or checking if we were OK whilst letting us get on with our holiday. Thank you for a great week away!"
