Our experience at Doghouse Margate (Thea Room) was perfect from start to finish! Gorgeous big room, spotlessly clean, beautiful en suite bathroom and one of the comfiest beds we've ever slept on. A dog bed was provided for our dog along with a lovely box of personalised treats on arrival. Breakfast room service in the morning was prompt and delicious and we loved the option to get sausage and eggs delivered for the dog, too! The big chalkboard in the hall with recommended places to see and eat was really helpful, and we enjoyed trying out a few of the dog-friendly options. It's a five-minute stroll to the nearest beach from the door and there's a good selection of shops, bars and coffee places in the immediate vicinity. Margate Main Sands and promenade are walkable in less than 15 mins, or there's a handy regular bus service which we used when it was raining. This is a fantastic place to stay that has been thought out down to the tiniest detail. We will definitely return and recommend to others 🙂

a Gorgeous BnB with lovely hosts and a very homely and warm feeling. Bathrooms are super nice and the beds are comfy and rooms were clean and well proportioned. The home cooked breakfasts are delicious too!

Absolutely lovely place to stay. Spacious, bright and spotlessly clean rooms. Comfy bed and fluffy white towels. Plus a delicious breakfast brought to the room. Can't wait to come back and stay again! 🙂

We've just enjoyed our recent stay at the Doghouse and can't thank Mel, Fee and Thierry enough for making us feel very welcome in their most excellently presented establishment! Our family group had all 3 rooms and were celebrating Tess's 3rd birthday and Jamie's 25th. The Doghouse provided us with a home from home and we couldn't have asked for more; rooms, cleanliness, in-house facilities above and beyond and oh my..............breakfasts to die for!!! Even Tess, our black Labrador had her very own room service, menu, luxury bed and home made personalised dog treats. We would definitely stay again.

My my my Margate - 💕 This luxury guest house knows how to make you feel welcome. They got Billie and. Chewy a little welcome box full of biscuits (personalised too) the room was set up with bowls of water and the comfiest doggy beds @settle.beds (fancy) If we did want to go out out without the dogs @dh_margate offers a pet sitting service. I put a whole post on my social media dedicated just to the morning breakfast. Wow wow wee delicious and even the dogs had menu choices, we got them both a 1/4 English. The room we stayed in very stylish, clean and a coffee machine (bliss!) The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, there is even a living room full of games if you wish to hang inside but out of your room. The area did not disappoint, minutes away from the beach. Walpole Tidal pool, Botany Bay (Dog Friendly - beach restrictions 1st May- 30th September) After visiting on a Hen Doo last May I just fell in love with the shabby chic seaside town that has tones of character, from trendy galleries to the old-school beachfront arcades, and quirky coffee shops. Not to mention the place is so dog friendly, we took them everywhere with us. Out for Negronis, out for tacos and margaritas and ice cream. To my Surrey and Sussex friends, you guys should bypass Brighton and see what Marvelous Margate has to offer! We will be back again to stay here in the summer, we like the look of the charcuterie picnic.

Wished we could have stayed longer at Doghouse Margate!! Stayed in The Teal room - it was such a warm, comfy, and quiet room! The hospitality and the home cooked breakfast the next morning was the cherry on top for us, highly highly recommend!

Mel & Fe made us feel very welcome during our 2 night stay with our greyhound Luna. The whole place is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, comfortable room and gorgeous bath! The breakfast is delicious and Luna even had her own personalised biscuits and breakfast. The chalkboard listing loads of dog friendly Margate activities is a lovely touch and we loved The Taphouse nearby. Thanks for a lovely stay, we will be back!

Beautiful rooms with a stunningly delicious breakfast in a great location in Cliftonville, near the beach and only a short walk to the centre of Margate. They were so accommodating and lovely, and treated our dog Chilli well too – she got her own personalised dog treats and a breakfast too!

Great b&b! The hosts were welcoming and the room (Teal room) was so cozy and welcoming! Huge bathroom. Both were so clean. Tokyo (our dog) enjoyed the custom treats, daily breakfast and the dog bed(now we have to get one for her for Christmas). Great location close to beach and coffee spots. Short drive or medium walk to the mean beach and amusement centres etc. Breakfast everyday wa sa highlight and was amazing! Highly recommend 🙂

We couldn't be happier with our stay at the Dog House. Mel and Fe are excellent hosts, managing to be both attentive and unobtrusive. The room was very comfortable and well equipped. The breakfasts, served in our room, were delicious and beautifully presented. The location was ideal. It's a quiet area, but with easy access to the town centre and a short hop to Broadstairs on the bus. There are lots of fine restaurants within a 15-minute walk. Thank you!

This is such a special place in Margate! They go and beyond and treated me so fantastically (and my dog and my dad). The rooms are beautifully appointed and they have thought of everything. The breakfasts are seriously good. So good! I’m still thinking about the flapjacks! And your dog gets an amazing breakfast. Really healthy good stuff! Mel and Fe are just lovely and they’ve created something special! I love the tips they give on the board too. I stayed there for 4 nights and it was perfect! Recommend whole heartedly

Lovely place to stay! We booked the Teal room which was very clean with lots of natural light and with one of the best showers I’ve ever had. Breakfasts were delicious and served in bed by the very friendly couple owners. Would definitely stay again

We recently had the most delightful experience at The Doghouse in Margate, and we simply couldn't be happier with our stay! We brought along our beloved Italian Greyhound, Bertie, and boy, did he have a tail-wagging time! From the moment we arrived, we were impressed with the warm and friendly welcome we received. The staff at The Doghouse clearly adore their four-legged guests, and it showed in the attention and care they gave to Bertie. His custom-made treats were an absolute hit, and it was heartwarming to see him enjoy them so much. Bertie is usually a bit fidgety when staying away from his own bed, but this time, it was like he was on cloud nine! He seemed super comfortable throughout our entire stay, which put our minds at ease. Knowing that he was happy and content allowed us to fully relax and enjoy our baby-moon, just three weeks before the due date of our baby. The facilities at The Doghouse were top-notch. The attention to detail in creating a dog-friendly environment was exceptional. Our room was spacious and cozy, with all the amenities we needed. The whole place exuded a serene and welcoming atmosphere, making it a perfect retreat for both humans and their canine companions. And let's talk about breakfast! Oh my, it was fantastic. The delicious spread of morning delights had us eagerly getting up each day. We appreciated the variety and quality of the breakfast offerings, and the fact that they catered to both humans and dogs was simply delightful. In conclusion, The Doghouse in Margate is a true gem for any dog-loving traveler. The genuine care and thoughtfulness extended to Bertie and us during our baby-moon getaway made it an unforgettable experience. We can't recommend The Doghouse enough, and we're already looking forward to our next visit! Thank you, Doghouse team, for making our stay so special!
