The South East England region
Margate is one of the forgotten jewels of our seaside heritage. It has a proud history of holiday making since Georgian times. It boast many historic buildings in the Old Town and on the seafront and is enjoying an upsurge due partly to a developing arts movement. The £18million Turner Contemporary gallery will be opened in 2010. However, Margate also retains its tradtional seaside appeal and has beautiful clean, sandy beaches, good bars, restaurants and coffee shops. It offers a base for many attractions in Kent and provides a great all year round holiday destination
Margate is a great base for visits to nearby Ramsgate, Folkestone, Canterbury and Rochester. Take a daytrip to France by Ferry from Folkestone or Eurotunnel from Ashford. Kent is full of attractions and amusements for all age groups and budgets.
Margate beach is a major attraction and is a Blue Flag beach having won Seaside Awards
Margates other attractions include bowling, swimming, leisure centre, night life, arts centre, museum, jet sking , sailing, guided rock pool walksetc. The tourism office in Margate Harbour is a good source of local information and the apartment has a folder with brochures and information to help you get the most from your holiday.
Nearby Westwood Cross offers a fabulous shopping centre with Vue cimema, mecca casino, a number of restaurants, gym and retail parks. It is a 5 minute drive or bus journey from Margate. Nearby Broadstairs and Ramsgate also offer a good day out or evening entertainment.

"A great place to stay to explore Margate and the surrounding area"
THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE GARDEN APARTMENT
This is a really beautiful and comfortable apartment looking over the sea. Despite it being the coldest March on record, the apartment was always warm and cozy to come back to after our many long walks along the beaches. The apartment is really well equipped with everything you need for your stay; we certainly didn't want for anything.
Although the kitchen is perfectly well equipped for cooking, if you fancy eating out there are plenty of really good cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance. Of note are Forts (at the end of Fort Crescent, a minute's walk from the apartment) which does superb breakfasts, and as a special treat the Ambrette serves Indian food with a twist, a million miles away from the traditional curries served in most Indian restaurants.
For ale lovers, the Lifeboat in the old town is well worth a visit, serving local ales straight from the cask, along with Kentish wines, ciders and perry. They also serve delicious local cheeses, pies, pickles and chutneys.
Margate has certainly seen better days; we both grew up in Kent and have many happy memories of day trips to the town and Dreamland from our childhoods and from when we first got together as a couple. However, there seems to be a concerted effort to regenerate Margate and it's well worth a visit. I would absolutely recommend the Garden apartment as a place to stay and explore the area.

This apartment was a lovely welcomming place to stay with great sea views.We stayed over New Year to travel into London for the celebrations.A 15 minute walk along the promenade to the railway station with direct links to the city.There are shops really close by.The bus links are great so saves driving around.I would definitely recommend this apartment as I dont think anyone could find peak season accomodation at low rate prices

"Nice little apartment"
Spent a very pleasant week here. Very well-equipped little apartment with lovely direct sea view from the living room window. We would have preferred one of the two-bed apartments but took this as the others were booked and it did the job nicely. There were a few items missing that we had to pick up - corkscrew, toilet roll, oil & vinegar, etc, the Wi-Fi was virtually non-existent, and the owner needs to monitor the cleaners performance but apart from the quibbles, a nice place. The area is a bit seedy and run down but we rather liked it's quirkiness. The apartment is also very well situated for visiting the Town centre and the Turner. Forts Cafe (out of apartment, turn right, 100 yards) is brilliant. Also forget Pete's chippy down the road and head straight for Godwin's in Cliftonville 'round the corner ; )
I think that this guest unfortunately stayed in the apartment after it was left in a particularly bad state by the previous guests (thankfully this is a rare occurrence) . Our cleaner struggled to get it up to standard in time but obviously something was missed and we were very upset by this as we take housekeeping and cleanliness very seriously.
The wifi signal is fairly weak and we provide a signal booster in the apartment and the guest was unable to find it.
