    5 star review  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

    5 star review  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.

    5 star review  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!

    5 star review  We love it here! Great breakfast, great location and great hosts! The bagels in particular were spot on and we were given such a warm welcome. Our room was clean and spacious, perfect for a weekend away to recharge. Will definitely be visiting again soon. Thank you 😊

    5 star review  5 stars are not enough- our stay with Fe and Mel was fantastic. They are the most welcoming hosts I have ever experienced. The room was immaculate. The breakfast was lovely and served to our room - what a treat!! And the dressing gowns ( oh my gosh) they were the softest ever - I’ve already booked to return. Thank you so much Fe and Mel for making us feel so special.

    5 star review  Travelled to Margate for a few days away and loved that the Doghouse is queer-owned and run. Fe and Mel are both so wonderful and the whole place is beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and they made everything so easy. Location is amazing - not too far away from the main areas of Margate and just a couple of mins walk to get to a lovely quiet part of the beach. Will definitely be back and recommending to friends!

    5 star review  Stunning B&B! We had a lovely weekend stay with our toy poodle. The room was beautify, breakfast was delicious and only a short walk to the beach. Made our first trip to Margate extra special!

    5 star review  We had the most wonderful stay in Margate. Lovely room with a delicious breakfast (coeliac and gluten free friendly). Excellent location for exploring the area. Would come back again! Fabulous hosts that made you feel at home.

    5 star review  There simply aren’t enough superlatives to describe our weekend at the Doghouse! Our room was beautiful, modern and comfortable with everything we needed already thought of, and our Shiba Inu was treated like a king; from breakfast in a memory foam bed to personalised treats on arrival. Our breakfasts were similarly delicious! Mel and Fe are the best hosts I’ve ever experienced - unobtrusive but incredibly helpful, friendly and genuine, and arranged a lovely welcome for us on my partner’s birthday. They even kindly let us check out a little later so we could shower after one last swim in the sea. It was great to be located a little out of town to switch off and relax, but super close to a dog friendly beach - perfect for us to stroll into the centre to eat in the evenings. Margate is SO dog friendly. We’ll be back and wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere but the Doghouse.

    5 star review  We have just spent the weekend at the Doghouse in Margate and we could not have been happier with this accommodation. Our room was gorgeous and the breakfast (served in the room in the morning) was delicious. The owners are really nice and friendly and made us feel at home. And they let us check out one hour later so we could enjoy the sunny day at the beach.

    5 star review  We had the best time at Doghouse - super friendly owners, gorgeous rooms and tasty breakfast (even for the dog 😊). We’ll definitely be coming back!

    5 star review  We had the most wonderful two-night stay here with our three dogs. It really was like a home away from home. Fe, Mel and Thierry made us feel welcome from the get go, from the delicious breakfasts (for our dogs too) to the personalised dog biscuits. The bedrooms and whole house has been furnished to perfection. You can tell they have spent a lot of time thinking about their guests' needs. We will be shouting about the wonders of this place from the rooftops and are already looking forward to our next trip here.

      We’ve just stayed over the August Bank holiday and couldn’t have wanted for a better spot!

    Coming from London we wanted somewhere dog friendly, peaceful, within walking distance to the sea and restaurants, the Dog House in Margate is all this and more!

    The property is beautifully decorated, the beds and linens are divine and the breakfasts are AMAZING! Our Pomeranians loved their quarter English breakfasts too! We stayed in the Bailey room and loved it!

    Mel & Fe are the perfect hosts and I would return in a heartbeat!
