“It is quite a nice apartment,but it is a shame that it's not in a better position.”
“Very comfortable and well equipped accommodation - all exactly as described on-line.”
The flat has games, pictures and pastimes to delight children and adults equally.
“Private free car park is a huge bonus in Deal.”
Approaching the apartment through the courtyard, with all of the hanging baskets & flowering containers of the other apartments was pleasant. Sadly, nothing outside of Wild Tides, apart from a very tatty mat, which trapped the dirt. Once through the door, there was a welcome mat which was filthy. The apartment inside however was very clean, apart from the freezer, which contained an open bag of chips. The fresh milk in the fridge was appreciated; the old/second hand tea/coffee/pepper in the cupboards not so. There is a mix of modern white furniture (which goes with the décor), & old wooden (some wood-worm) furniture which does not. The big issue for us was the master bedroom. The window wall has a white "cotton wool" growing on it, paint flaking off & plaster coming away from wall. There is also a large drill hole, as though something has come off wall, taking the plaster with it. Speaking to neighbours, it is a damp problem, that that is occurring in some other ground floor apartments. A great pity, because it appears that a quick cosmetic clean up would improve the appearance, until something more permanent can be arranged. As there was only the two of us staying, after one night we moved into the smaller twin bedroom, but this option is obviously not available to a family of four.
“Everything was ok, but had problem with noisy TV from flat above, morning till night daily.”
I think it was just as much a problem with the building as anything including the creaky wooden floorboards. Nonetheless it would make me think twice before booking there again.
“Wild Tides was an ideal holiday base - compact, cosy and comfortable and only a short walk to the beach, the historic centre of Deal and both Deal and Walmer Castles.”
Loved it and will certainly recommend both it and Sykes. Hope to return soon!

About the location
Dover 8.5 miles; Canterbury 24 miles.
Deal is an historic, Georgian coastal town boasting two castles, both open to the public, two small museums, and two markets held weekly. The town offers restaurants with cuisine ranging from the traditional, to exotic delicacies from the Orient, but, if fish is your desire then why not catch your own by enjoying a spot of fishing from the beach or pier? Deal Castle is an ideal place for children to explore, rugged and exciting with audio guides to help you get the best information, whilst taking in this impressive castle built in the time of Henry VIII. Walmer Castle, which became the home of The Duke of Wellington, and was the late Queen Mother's favourite, is just along the coast with gardens and tea rooms open from April until October, and their scones are highly recommended! Deal was the most important Naval base in Britain during the Age of Sail and although long gone, its maritime heritage is still inherent in its Conservation Area architecture and house names. Deal became a smuggler's paradise during the 1700s, and heritage street maps show where rum and brandy were rolled by casket avoiding the Excise men. Why not take the cycle path from Deal to Kingsdown, a pretty Kent village with views across to France? Here you can rest and recuperate in one of the three pubs all serving excellent food. If golf is your game then there are 12 courses within a 30 minute journey, but Royal Cinque Ports, Royal St. Georges and Kingsdown are within an easy distance. For sheer imposing magnificence nearby Dover Castle is an absolute must visit on any visitor's list. Spectacularly situated above the White Cliffs of Dover, this magnificent castle has guarded our shores from invasion for 20 centuries. Deal won the Daily Telegraph's ‘High Street of the Year’ award in January, and was voted as the number 1 coastal town in Britain by them in November, 2014. Also named as one of the ‘top 30 weekend retreats’ in March 2014 by The Times, Deal is the perfect location for families and friends looking to pursue outdoor activities or laze on the beach enjoying the sea air. Stroll along the cobbled streets, sit and relax outside a bistro or tea room with a coffee, or just gaze out to sea; Deal has something for everyone!
