“A perfect home-away-from-home!”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I have just returned to Canada after spending 5 weeks in The Bakehouse, Whitstable. From my initial contact with Virginia, to her very thoughtful email wishing me a safe trip home ... this has been a most positive experience. The flat itself is open and bright, spotlessly clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated. The location is excellent, just behind the High Street, only a short walk (10 min.) to the train station or the harbour, with shops, restaurants and bus stops just steps from the front gate. I was delighted to find the property to be very private, with a locking gate leading to a lovely deck area that was great for using in the hot weather, but also enabled me to store my rented bicycle safely. Another huge bonus was access to the adjoining laundry room, with washer and drying rack. I thank Virginia and her helper, Tessa, for taking such good care of this property and for making sure my time there was so memorable. I can't recommend The Bakehouse highly enough, and hope to return on a regular basis!

“Fabulous stay in Whitstable”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just spent a fabulous week at The Bakehouse. It is small but very well designed so that you do not feel cramped. Very tastefully decorated and extremely clean. A wonderful location right in town, great cafes, restaurants and shops close by and the beach just steps away.
I would return in a heartbeat. Our hosts were very accomodating.

“blind luck?”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a lovely, cute little place right just off the main road. It's tastefully decorated and has all amenities. The only downside, which is small but big at the same time, is that there's a skylight directly above the bed. If you don't mind being woken up by sunlight streaming into the room at 6am, that's fine. If, like most people, you need a break to catch up on your sleep, it's not. There are a number of comments along similar lines in the guest book going back two years. The owner has said she'll install a blind, which hopefully she will as this is the only downside to this lovely place.

Thank you for your review, even though rather harsh considering the fact you are thinking of returning!! In discussions with previous guests the majority enjoy looking up at the stars at night and being woken with the sunlight in the morning, it is the minority that have not liked this feature. However, as I mentioned to you, blackout blinds have been ordered and will be installed within the next week.

“A holidaymakers delight”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at The Bakehouse Whitstable whilst our home was being renovated after a fire from November through to the end of May. We loved staying at The Bakehouse, the location is fantastic within walking distance of everything in Whitstable. The Bakehouse is spotlessly clean, very well decorated, light and airy with a seaside feel. In our opinion it is the ideal place to stay for a holiday or short break, the moment we opened the door we loved the place and we shall recommend to all our friends and family. Virginia the host is extremely friendly and helpful.
