Jon Rimmer, auction appraiser, said: “This end-terrace freehold property, located on the corner of Station Road and Canterbury Road, has been run as a successful B&B for many years but may have potential for conversion, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.

“There are uninterrupted sea views from the front of the building which has eight guest bedrooms and a one-bedroom manager’s accommodation.”


The auction ended yesterday (September 20). Joint auctioneers were Christie & Co.


  1. they will be able to get quite a few of our friends from overseas in there , hopefully they wont complain too much about the facilitys

    • Speak for yourself, “Real world”. I doubt if my friends from overseas would want to stay in Margate when they could come to Ramsgate, where I live.

    • There aren’t any ‘friends from overseas’, we took back control of our borders like Johnson & Farage promised. The stories of refugees crossing the channel is just another project fear dreamt up by Marxist Loony left remainers because they lost. Stop believing the media lies sheeple, Johnson stopped immigration when he delivered Brexit.
