    Two night stay in Room 3 (top floor). Great location, 5 mins from town centre. Beautiful decor, huge bed, very comfortable. Breakfast served in room whenever you like, varied menu, delicious. On the pricier side, but worth it. Highly recommended.

    Probably the best breakfast I have ever had at any hotel or B&B. Located in a pretty Georgian square and beautifully furnished. The rooms are large and airy, and the owners are very friendly. Margate is a lot less grim than I remember it being...More

    Sorry I can't help with that...while we were staying there were just couples. I think all three rooms only have large King size beds. Best to check with the owners direct.
