My Mum and I booked a three day holiday in Margate staying at The Royal Seabathing Apartment and loved it. Our host, Courtney was very helpful and considerate before and during our stay. The flat was so spacious, well equipped and very pretty. We loved the outdoor terrace overlooking Westbrook beach. We did not have a car and the bus stop outside had regular buses to where we wanted to go. And if the weather had been bad, which it wasnt, the flat would have been a lovely place to hang out and relax in. We will recommend to all our friends.
Wow! What a great apartment. For a start the host Courtney was so great at keeping in touch prior to our visit providing us with any advice we needed. When we arrived we were delighted with the layout and the amount of little extras like the toys in the children’s room and all the DVDs etc. It’s just perfect. Amazing view from the terrace to the beautiful beach. There’s a little building work going on in the background at the moment which for us makes no disturbance at all, if anything my 3 year old was absolutely delighted that we have some diggers to watch! Amazing little Italian restaurant Casa over the road and such a cool micro pub. Called Ales of the Unexpected both of which I would highly recommend. SO happy with this place. The many other 5 star reviews are well deserved indeed! Thanks Courtney! can’t wait for the rest of our week here!
Great communication throughout with Courtney, instructions and directions were spot on.
The flat was lovely and warm when we arrived, we had everything we needed to make our stay very comfortable, including a travel cot and high chair for the baby.
Margate was an easy walk away, the wind was strong and we needed to wrap up very well! We enjoyed wandering through the town, browsing all the vintage shops. We planned to visit the Shell Grotto, and can say it is inspirational, well worth a trip, and a welcome break from the cold winds!
We sampled pies at 'The Lifeboat ' pub, great atmospheric pub with good ales and cider.
If you have time , browse through the the History of the seabathing apartments, you may find gems of information such as, when it was a hospital, the patients were fed three pounds of red meat per week, half a pound of bread daily, two gallons of beer a week, but hardly any milk! Also, from 1853 to 1932 nurses wages remained at the same rate of £25 a year, incredible!
I would love to come back and stay and explore more in the area, and can thoroughly recommend the apartment.
