- A comfortable bed with good quality linen
- A peaceful nights sleep in a quiet house in a quiet road, and
- A really good breakfast
*Awarded 5 out of 5 for Food Hygiene by Thanet District Council December 2013*In our B&B, we have three guest rooms, 2 double rooms both with en suite facilities, and the third room has a double and a single bed. There is nearly always plenty of on street parking but we do have off-road parking for two cars.
We opened our home as a B&B in 2010, but we know what makes a good Margate bed & breakfast, for example, we show you around the house first, because we want you to decide if you like what we have to offer.
We have satellite televisions in every bedroom, crisp white bed linen, and fluffy white towels, hospitality tray with tea and coffee, complimentary toiletries, a hair dryer is available. We clean the rooms daily.
Our Victorian/Edwardian house is a 10 minute stroll from the sea, and a 10 minute brisk walk to Margate's night life.
The Turner Contemporary Art Centre is 15 minutes from us, in all we think we are well placed for most things.
A few guest comments taken straight from Trip Advisor
"Hopewell House, Margate"
"My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at Hopewell house, the owners and pets made us very welcome. As mentioned by others, the full English breakfast is amazing and will set you up for the day. We will certainly be back."
"This b and b in Margate is a friendly and well run establishment. The breakfasts are truly amazing. A good place to stay , close (but not too close) to the centre of Margate. The house is in a quiet side road but only 12 minutes walk to the town centre. The owners are thoughtful and ensure your stay is an enjoyable one". 12th August 2013
"Hosts were friendly, helpful and accommodating. We stayed in the family room where the beds were comfortable with good quality bed linen. Fluffy towels too. Good selection for breakfast - cereals, toast, yoghurts, fruit, full English". July 2013
"Home from home. Many thanks to Bob and Sandy for their hospitality. Warm cosy stay in your home from home. Warm welcome from benji the family pet. Good hearty breakfast was much appreciated with home grown tomatoes and plumb jam. Kind regards Jenny & Mike" 21 October 2012
“Welcoming, comfortable, clean” 15 September 2012 "I have enjoyed a very relaxing break in Thanet based at Hopewell House B&B. Thank you to Bob and Sandy for their welcome. Very comfortable bed, quiet house, clean, delicious breakfasts. Excellent value for money. I would stay here again."
“Sehr zu empfehlen!! Highly Recommended!!” 8th Sept 2012
"Wir waren im August für ein langes Wochenende im Hopewell House bei Sandy und Bob. Es war goldrichtig, genau dieses B&B auszuwählen! Sandy und Bob sind wunderbare Gastgeber und führen ein sehr gepflegtes, perfekt ausgestattetes B&B. Die Beschreibung auf der Homepage ist absolut zutreffend. Man schläft dort wirklich sehr gut. Das B&B liegt in einer (dennoch zentral gelegenen) ruhigen Wohnstraße. Besonderes Highlight ist das full English Breakfast: besser geht es vermutlich nicht. Und wer sich das am Morgen nicht zutraut: das "normale" Frühstück ist auch sehr, sehr gut"
"Top Drawer B and B !” 30 August 2012
"Lovely warm welcome from the owners who can't do enough for you, rooms are super clean, plus an amazing cooked breakfast truly top value for money. If your down in Margate for the weekend, swerve the over priced Hotels as this is by far one of the best B and Bs we have stayed in! Highly recommended!"
“Family wedding” 26 August 2012
"We needed two rooms for 3 nights to attend a family wedding and Hopewell House was the closest. It also turned out to be the best! Truly a friendly welcome, good rooms, great beds and a super breakfast to set us up for each day. Sandy & Bob were very accommodating, allowing us to sit in their garden for post breakfast coffee as well as allowing use of our rooms during the day when needed. No out by 10am or back before 6pm here! I have used several B&B's in Margate, even so called Hotels, over the years, none of which I would ever recommend. Hopewell House has my wholehearted recommendation & will return again"
“A home from home with 5 star breakfasts” 20 August 2012
"We stayed for three nights to attend a family wedding and Bob and Sandy provided a home from home. We had an en suite room which was very comfortable, the ''full English'' breakfasts were superb and most definitely some of the very best we have had. Excellent value for money and a must for a stay in Margate."
“Unquestionably our best rated B&B to date.”
"Our hosts, Sandy and Bob, were exceptionally helpful throughout our nine days stay. The breakfasts were cooked to perfection with the choice of ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. The overall ambience of the B&B was warm and inviting. Our hosts were not only committed to high service standards, but they also added a rare ingredient into the mix which was 'CHARACTER and PERSONALITY'.
