We had a lovely time. The beach and cinema were great. Margate is very run down although Dreamland still worth a visit. Clean throughout and very comfortable accommodation. Would have loved an additional key and kitchenware a little tired, but overall a very pleasant stay. Washing machine and dish washer a big plus!

Excellent location for buses and trains. The conservatory and well looked after garden are excellent. Ivy cottage has everything you need but it’s looking very tired and very dated. Mugs need replacing as some were badly stained and already mentioned in previous reviews but seem to be ignored by the owners. Both kettle and toaster could do with a change. Bathroom needs a complete revamp as floor is a lino type and is grubby. The heated towel rail didn’t work.The ceiling has black damp stains and shower although was adequate also needs replacing. Plenty of hot water was great.The bathroom really lets Ivy cottage down. We got the impression that the owners are quite happy to just let Ivy cottage, get money in but no desire to invest money to improve the things that need addressing. That’s a shame as there is a lot to potential for this rental property.We came away having enjoyed our stay but disappointed because of the bathroom and kitchen items mentioned.
