We have dined at Bleak House on many occasions and have only high praise for the quality of our meals. Having visited top class restaurants all over the world, we would rate Bleak House as one of the best. With a fabulous choice of menu, waiting staff full of personality and the desire to attend to our every need, we... More

Bleak House in Broadstairs was one of Charles Dickens' homes and sits overlooking the beautiful sweeping Broadstairs bay. It's privately owned and quirky but absolutely charming, with a grand sweeping staircase, chandeliers, and rooms ranging from the huge Copperfield Suite with sunken bath and dressing room overlooking the whole bay, to Little Dorrit which also has a sea view. Each... More

We have stayed in many hotels and guest houses and let me tell you without any hesitation that the bedroom and bathroom of the Copperfield Suite at Bleak House are the best I have every stayed in. The size, decorations, features, benefits (including a decanter of sherry) were wonderful. The view from this suite is amazing and you can easily... More

(hello Jake) Very friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for us. We stayed in the Fagin Suite, which,of course, has sea view.Great shower. For someone who probably wasn't born before the... More

This was an interesting stay - I am surprised to see so many hugely positive 5-star reviews; our average rating is perhaps a reflection on us being fussy rather than the establishment itself. However, our thoughts were that this is a hotel in dire need of refurbishment - the fact it's Dickensian really isn't an excuse for mismatched clutter and,... More

I have just returned from a short break in Broadstairs staying at Bleak House, and I have to say, what a wonderful hotel! Fantastic customer service, luxurious rooms, great cuisine, amazing location and a rich & authentic historical past. From the moment we walked through the door, Nicola and the entire team made us feel so welcome. Nothing was too... More

My Husband booked as a special surprise for our Silver Wedding Anniversary 6 May - I had no idea until we arrived! My criteria was "a sea view" and wow did Copperfield Suite deliver! Even a balcony off the very special bathroom - We had breakfast in our room both mornings overlooking the sea plus afternoon tea on the terrace... More

We have lived in Broadstairs for 10 years and never realised that Bleak House had been turned into a lovely boutique hotel. We went for Sunday lunch today and whet a great experience it was. Everyone was so welcoming, especially Jake who was charming and very attentive. We went out on the terrace for a pre lunch drink and then... More
