“Character, comfortable house in excellent location”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Stayed in the house with for a family weekend attending a music festival. House was spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Outstanding location in the very heart of up and coming Old Margate with a great variety of cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants within a few minutes stroll. Interesting retro, antique and vintage shops abound and the more the traditional seaside attractions, the beach and excellent fish' chip shop, a few minutes walk away. No WiFi may be seen as a slight drawback by some but we rather enjoyed putting the iPad down and talking to each other. Huge bonus is the car parking space, on which we found you could fit one small and one medium car.
Contacts with Mary, the owner and her rep In Margate, Lynn went smoothly and dealings with both were very easy.
Overall would highly recommend and hope to return next year

“perfect base for discovery”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The Old Bank House is situated in the very centre of the lively Margate old town. Many beautiful shops and cafes around. 1 Minute walk to the seafront. Spacious rooms, nice living room and kitchen.

“Great central location for attractions with all you need to make a comfortable stay”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The house had all we needed, close to great pubs and bars, cafes and restaurants the Turner gallery and beach. We liked the rough edges of the town and the vintage shops in the old town. Don't miss the Shell Grotto and Tudor House at the weekend, We hope to be back some time. Parking at the house is tight for a large car but manageable and a definite bonus for the center of town. Quiet for town. Only slight problem with house was a poorly draining bathroom sink. Overall a great stay
