We stayed in the Nicholas Nickleby appartment which met our needs perfectly. Very clean and comfortable, with lovely views over Broadstairs seafront. The breakfast was second to none and plenty of it too. Served in... More

I found myself in Broadstairs by accident and it ended up being a dreamy stay entirely thanks to Bleak House and its staff. The House itself is for the stuff of Legends, literally, thanks to its association to Charles Dickens and it appealed to me in a very personal way. The attention to detail is outstanding, from the furniture to... More

My husband and I booked recently for an overnight weekend stay. The staff were all lovely, so welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The top floor apartment we stayed in was immaculate & the views over Broadstairs town, Viking Bay beach and the sea from Bleak House are second to none. Loved the spa bath positioned in front...

It REALLY did feel like home only better and with the butler in bonus. Was it the entrance with its fire roaring or the normal size staircase? Or the fact that we had to use the kitchen door after 5pm I cannot say.... We enjoyed tremendously our Easter week end. We arrived on Easter Friday with a bleak, foggy, cold... More

Lovely venue and welcoming staff for our small family get together. Freshly prepared food and chef willingly accommodated our request for separate sandwich options for the children. The tour of Bleak House added something special to the afternoon. The views of Broadstairs are superb. Everyone was impressed and some of the party are now considering staying. Highly recommend this afternoon... More
