We had the most brilliant weekend in Margate. Staying here is 100% recommended- fantastic location, hosts, room and details. Ridiculously dog friendly and will absolutely be back. Next time in the summer to enjoy the beach

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!

Warm welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Very comfortable bed, the dogs loved their quarter English breakfast, which was delivered to the room. Our breakfast was delicious, would highly recommend.

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.

Hugely peaceful couple of days spent in this lovely space. Every detail has been thought about so that your stay in incredibly comfortable and luxurious. They do an awesome veggie breakfast to boot. I will be going back at the earliest opportunity!

The breakfast was dreamy. Lush pancakes, lovely fry up with choice of veggie option, bagels (!!!) Honestly my partner and I woke up feeling like a king and queen after two flawless nights of sleep. Fe and Mel are lovely, warm hosts who are obviously dedicated to ensuring you have the best, most luxurious experience of home away from home. And when I left a jacket behind, Melissa called and emailed promptly so that I was able to return and pick it up. Woo! Thank you Melissa and Fe. Leo and I will be reminiscing of our stay for a long time xx

I had such a lovely stay at Doghouse Margate - I stayed in the Thea room and was obsessed with the freestanding bath! The room and en-suite were gorgeous; it’s clear Fe and Mel have put a lot of thought into the little things, like incredible-smelling bath salts in the bathroom and chocolate truffles with breakfast. The food was delicious and it was such a treat to have it delivered to my room. The bed was really comfortable and I appreciated the TV in the room so I could catch up with the Olympics. The house is just up the street from the Walpole Tidal Pool, and there are great coffee spots (like Cliffs) a short walk away. I had such a relaxing few days and I just wish I had a dog to bring with me! Thank you Mel and Fe for a great trip.

The Doghouse Margaret is super stylish, in an incredible location (short walk to the sandy beach, restaurants, open lido) and spotless! The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had at a B&B. The pancakes and fruit reminded me of Denny's diner in the states 🙂 The hosts and their sweet dog made myself and my guest feel really very welcomed. The room was cozy, bed very comfortable and shower was powerful. The lounge area felt like a home away from home. What I especially liked was the little touches like the noticeboard with the top10 current things to do in Margate, dog sitting and the dog treats my little pooch gobbled up! I would highly recommend and cannot wait to stay here again!
