"Fabulous ..."

A really lovely holiday apartment - spacious, bright and immaculately clean. Welcome pack and flowers are very welcoming. Location is also great - short stroll to beach and shops and opposite car park which is ideal. A very relaxing holiday. Will be happy to return.

"Simply The Best"

I am reluctant to write this review as I would like to go back and don't want to find it is fully booked but honesty prevails.....The Retreat is fabulous: we travelled with children and grandchildren and had plenty of room and were all very comfortable. The standard of furnishing and the extras provided are the best we have ever encountered. Thank you so much for the welcome pack it was much appreciated. The location is perfect with the beach only 2 minutes away. I would happily live here. We ate at the next door restaurant (54), which was good for grown ups but not for children. Next time we would know to book in advance for the more popular places. It was the perfect family holiday.

"Comfortable well equipped apartment"

The weather was freezing when we were in Broadstairs so we really appreciated the comfort and warmth of The Retreat after a day out. We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years but we have not come across accommodation so well thought out and equipped as this place. The owner left a hamper filled with goodies plus milk, tea, coffee, juice and wine. There was also a permit for car parking. The apartment had a warm friendly atmosphere more like a family home than a holiday let. I think this must be a reflection of the owner's generous nature. We didn't have the use of the car so the location was perfect for us as the beach and shops were on our doorstep.

"Great property, great location."

We really enjoyed our week at the Retreat. We were lucky to get one of the best weeks of the summer but felt whatever the weather we would have enjoyed our stay. The property is centrally located, easy walking distance to the beach, pubs and restaurants. A lot of thought has obviously gone into the decor and fixtures and fittings of the Retreat and it shows - added to which the attention to detail makes this a very attractive property. We particularly enjoyed the welcome hamper, the complimentary toiletries and the comfy beds!

"Very well equipped, decorated and located holiday house"

Lovely house, recently refurbished to very high & modern standard. Well equipped kitchen, huge bathroom and spacious bedrooms (the twin room is the smallest, and probably better for children than adults). Good location for the beach (around 100m walk) and shops etc in town. Permit for parking in the carpark opposite very helpful. The welcome hamper, plus all the extras really made the difference (towels, shower gel, soaps, toilet rolls, washing liquid etc). Biggest downside we felt was the view - you are overlooking the carpark, and the fairly constant comings and goings, but this was more than made up for by location and the interior of the house.

"Great place to stay in Broadstairs"

Modern, clean, comfortable spacious appartment with lots and lots of lovely touches and a great welcome hamper on arrival. The pre-paid parking ticket for the car park opposite also covered Margate and Ramsgate.

"Excellent accommodation overall with well considered 'extras'"

Good location near beach. Looks as if it has been refurbished recently and to a great design. Comfortable beds. We had grandchildren with us and there were gates on the stairs, which was great. Normally when I book self catering I have to take lots of extras, like soap, washing up liquid, tea towels, spare towels etc. Absolutely everything had been thought of here so there was no need to bring anything. There was also a lovely welcome hamper, and also lots of DVDs and games. I would definitely return.

"Comfortable family accommodation in central position"

This accommodation was ideal for our 3 generation family. It is comfortable, well furnished and equipped and all arrangements were well thought out and went smoothly. The parking ticket, available for use in many of the local car parks was a particular advantage.
