Our tenants love living in our rooms because we create a homely environment

Lived with Ramsgate Rooms for over 6 months now, the move in process was very quick! Great location, central to Thanet. It feels like my long-term home and great there is no live-in landlord. The maintenance is run professionally & quickly. Very good house share.
Dan Gillies
Been living in Ramsgate Rooms now since January and I can honestly say it’s been a success. I moved in quickly with no hassle which was a bonus for me as I don’t like long waiting times. I met some lovely people who are now my friends and the properties feel like home. I would highly recommend Ramsgate Rooms to anyone!

It's clean, warm and peaceful. If anything goes wrong, maintenance sort it within 12 hours. Highly recommend it!
