Thank you for your valuable comments, we will of course take your views into account about the plug in air fresheners and lessen their use, although we haven't received complaints before and guests generally like them and comment on the freshness of the cottage, we would of course not use them at all, should you or other guests request this. Thanks Lynn

"Lovely cottage in central location"

Cottage was well presented and had everything needed. Location was good but noisy when nearby pubs closed. Only car parking is a payable one which was 80p per hour, this should be notified as it adds cost to the stay. We travelled with one teenage son and couldn't see where the space was for a second bed in that room. Beds and pillows were comfortable as was the downstairs seating and dining areas. Nice welcome pack provided along with fresh flowers. Overall Enjoyed our stay and would recommend but warn about cost of parking and no outside space.

There is a link to our own website which explains about the nearby parking, although the surrounding residential streets are FREE day and night, they are popular and spaces may be limited at certain times. There is also a long stay car park about 8 mins walk away.
Thanks for your feedback.

"Very Relaxing"

A lovely house, well equipped and very central. The house has everything you could want from a home away from home, was very clean and check in/out was smooth. Parking in the short stay seconds away was easy and 80p per hour, free overnight. Whitstable itself has lots of nice restaurants and pubs and plenty to do especially when the weather is good. We ate at Wheelers (must book) and the Crab & Winkle (pricey but worth every penny).

We are particularly fussy so if we had to pick something to critique, it would be the bathroom which is a little tired. However, perfectly acceptable, just we are fussy!

Thank you for your comments. Maybe should have said improvements to the bathroom were scheduled for soon after your visit, so consider the bathroom suitably spruced, with new tiles around the bath and new bath panel.
Glad you enjoyed your stay, hopefully see you again soon.
