Our extended family - 9 people - spent three nights at Margate Place early November 2016. The rooms were spacious and had everything you needed. Melinda and her team made sure that you were looked after and came with good ideas on what to do and recommendations on nearby restaurants - just as it should be when you know nothing...

My husband and I recently stayed at Margate Place and it was a relaxing experience. The staff were hospitable and the facilities were beautiful.There was secure parking for our vehicle and we enjoyed the continental breakfast offered. It was definitely worth the visit, would recommend it to anyone looking for a getaway close to the beach.

Stayed for a night with another couple, Good sized rooms with interconnecting door so ideal for family groups. Secure parking and ideally located close to the beach. Clean and very comfortable but our rooms were up steep stairs so not suitable for all but staff offered to carry bags up. Very nice breakfast with excellent choice to suit all tastes.

This entire stay was a fantastic experience from beginning to end! The booking and payment process was very easy. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and the check in was easy and painless. My husband and I stayed in a 1 bedroom cottage, with bathroom, patio and kitchenette. We chose not to take the b&b option but rather prepared...

“Some ground floor rooms are larger than others. If you have a problem with stairs, request a ground floor unit - if you are a couple request a larger room on reservation. See their website for outlay of accommodation offered. Really a nice place to stay.”
