Whaleback Cottage is a beautiful stone cottage in the most perfect location in Ramsgate. It's stone walls and wooden floors give you a sense of its history yet it is very clean and comfortable. The views from the bedrooms and patio is incredible and the sound of the sea all around you cannot be beaten. There are blue flag beaches as well as lovely walks and tidal pools on its doorstep. The pool and garden are well secured for dogs and children. Love it, cannot wait to return!

Loved it! No moans from any of us. Very happy. The housekeeper is lovely and attentive and a real asset to Whaleback Cottage.

We had a wonderful stay in Whaleback Cottage. We are a big family but the house is spacious so we never felt crowded. All the beds, linen and towels are clean. Doreen is very friendly and helpful. Whaleback Cottage has a lot of charm and character. We'll be back again.

As before, we had an excellent holiday. The view could not be better. The service by all, specifically Bill, Sheila & Chris, is outstanding.
