We loved our stay at the Doghouse in Margate. The room was bright, spacious and modern. Location was perfect - in a nice neighborhood but very close to the beach and charming bars/restos. The breakfast was amazing! It was the small details that left us excited to return - especially with our dog who had the time of her life. Thanks for a great weekend!

Had a lovely long weekend at the Doghouse. Mel and Fe made us very welcome. The room was very clean, spacious and really quiet. The bed was very comfortable ensuring great night's sleep. Breakfast was served each morning in our rooms. Full English. Our German Shepherd, Astra had a great time too and looked forward to her sausage and egg breakfast each day. We would recommend the Doghouse to anyone.

What a wonderful place Doghouse is. Very stylish, light airy rooms, with everything you could need. Impeccably clean with very comfortable beds. The breakfasts were amazing and our hosts could not have been more welcoming. Also, if you were to stay in the centre of town, you'd miss out on some of the lovely cafes, bars and shops on Northdown road. All this and we don't even have a dog! Stop reading this and book yourself a room.

The best b&b or hotel I have ever stayed in. From the beautiful front door to the thick fluffy towels. Friendly greeting on arrival and lots of useful information given. The breakfasts are sumptuous, great selection too. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. I'd stay again for sure.

We booked a last minute 2 night get away, and we're so glad we did! The rooms are tastefully decorated, with lovely bedding, towels, bathrobes... The breakfast is also outstanding. We had the smoked salmon bagel, full English and the pancakes, and it was all delicious. Really nice treat for it to arrive to your room and enjoy it at your own leisure. Whilst the BnB is literally just access to your room/bathroom, it works really well. Very comfortable and quiet, I would come again. Benji, our dog, also loved it (including the bespoke dog treats!). Location wise, it's about 20 minutes walk along the sea front, or a short drive, into Margate, and it's a short walk to Walpole bay (lovely swim at the tidal pool) or in easy distance from the other beaches along the coast like Botany Bay. Thanks again Mel and Fe.

The hosts were accommodating in every way possible (that you could ask for) - everything you wanted was there. The accommodation was clean, contemporary, and the breakfasts were amazing. They gave a kind unexpected treat on my birthday, which was very thoughtful. We will definitely be coming back again, and will recommend the Dog House to our friends. Fred & Rose

I recently spent a long weekend in Margate for a friends birthday and happened upon a hidden gem in The Doghouse. I couldn't be happier with my experience, the room was modern, minimal, quiet and very very comfortable. The bathroom was fantastic too. Fe and Mel are amazing hosts and took great care of me, even drove me to the station when my taxi didn't show up!!! I cant say enough about this great B&B other than you must try it when you are next in Margate. Its a 5 star for sure.

A really welcoming and extremely comfortable stay. The bathroom and bedroom were superb. Loved the coffee making facility in the room, a real bonus. The full English breakfast and pancakes breakfast set us up for the day. Thank you Mel & Fe for being great hosts.

We had a really amazing stay at the Doghouse. The owners are really nice, and super helpful, ready to answer any questions and provide recommendations. The location is great too - only a short walk to the sea and not too far from the town (20ish mins). Breakfast is definitely a highlight, so delicious and brought straight to your room. Would definitely recommend the English breakfast. Great veggie options too!

Just got back from two glorious nights at Dog house Margate. Fe and Mel are amazing hosts and made our stay so enjoyable. The rooms are gorgeous, just like the pictures, luxurious soft bedding , immaculately clean and the towels were the softest ever. The in room breakfast was delicious. We don’t have a dog and you definately don’t need a dog to stay there. It’s a great location , just a short walk to the seafront. If you’re looking for a couple of nights away we highly recommend staying at Dog house Margate.
