Had a really enjoyable stay at Hartsdown Hive. On arrival, Donna was there to meet us, very friendly and showed us where everything was in the accommodation. It's a garage conversion and the use of space is very clever, never felt too cramped even with our dog. There were lots of thoughtful touches such as bread, milk, eggs, water, fruit, cereals, tea, coffee - all the basics you could need really. The location was pretty good, there was a lovely park just across the road that we used for exercising the dog - she enjoyed it! Then a 15 minute walk to the sea front, ideal. We were visiting friends that live in the area so would definitely use again.

Expectations were good from the photos and reviews - even better in reality. Spotlessly clean and everything you could wish for - plus fruit and breakfast-makings. The beach hut at the back is just fab for relaxing and eating outside. Just a short walk into the centre of Margate - all 'round perfect!

Wonderful little place to stay, cosy, with a great bit of decking and chill out area at the back. Nice and secure and within 15 minutes stroll of the seafront. Great communication from Chris for check in, just perfect!

My family and I moved from London four years ago and very glad we did, although I still have to travel back each Monday to work!

I play in a local rock band called Charlie Bard, have two Cockapoo's and a bar at the end of the garden. Oh and the seas only a short walk away!
