    Located on the Canterbury road and just 10 minutes walk into the town and to the beach we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Sue who was an excellent host. Lovely bedroom with huge bed, en suite with excellent shower. Great breakfast that set you up...

    Excellent breakfast.icaruin very good for walking into the centre of town or to the beach The only drawback was that the road was noisy until about 11.30 at night. The hostess, Sue, is a very nice person and has kitted the rooms out really well....

I've been running Cliftonville House as a B&B for 8 years now. It's something I really enjoy doing, I love meeting new people from all over the world and from all walks of life
I've lived in Cliftonville House for 40 years now and have managed to trace all previous occupants. The missing piece of the jigsaw was filled in for me in July 2016 when a very dapper gentleman knocked on my door one Saturday afternoon. I assumed he was after a room for the night but no. He introduced himself as Jim Foreman , he was born in this property in 1927 and grew up here till he left to serve his time in the 1950's. He had his 2 sons with him on a trip down memory lane and I was able to show him the original document his mother and father had signed when they purchased the property. He has kept in touch with me since and has dug out several old photos of his families time here. He will be coming down as an hounary guest along with his sons this year
Whitstable is a tight knit community but the demographs have changed since I first moved here in 2977. I feel they've changed for the better. It's a very popular destination for day trippers, weekenders and young couples who wish to escape their busy life style in London. There are numerous excellent eateries art galleries and eclectic gift shops. Whitstable has working Harbour, it's a busy town but not overcrowded. It's a town I've always felt safe in
