We were lucky enough to have our wedding ceremony and reception at Bleak House last weekend. We arrived on the Friday to be greeted by Jake, checking in was a breeze and we were shown to our room which was lovely. Our other family members who stayed in Bleak House also were very happy! On the Saturday (the day of... More

Just returned from a two night stay at Bleak House. The hotel is quirky and charming and felt like we were staying in a home rather than a hotel. We stayed in the Little Dorrit suite which had a sea view and had everything you could possibly need. The staff are absolutely incredible and really work hard to make your... More

Just didn't work for me and at £200 a night I would expect better. Good breakfast, outstanding views from the Charles Dickens suite and a comfortable bed. Attentive,well intentioned staff though a little lacking in experience. Very poor parking, oppressively gloomy in certain areas and a mismatch of furnishings that created a rather shabby atmosphere. For £200 I expect an... More

This was a fairly last minute decision as I wanted to book a luxurious one night stay for my partner's birthday. We had been to Broadstairs for the day last year and loved it. Bleak House is fab! The staff are extremely welcoming and our room (Fagins Suite) was fab. Free slippers, fluffy towels, complimentary sherry, water, fresh milk and... More

Thank you for taking your time to write these comments and are pleased you were happy with your room, As for the breakfast it must have had some very hungry guests come down before yourselves. It is a shame you missed the lovely weather we had been having.. Kind Regards, Jake More

We have stayed in Bleak House before and as usual the service and staff were excellent, friendly and helpful as ever. This time we stayed in the apartment suite. Two of our children and my Nan stayed as well. Everyone thought the apartment bedrooms were fantastic and the views excellent. My Nan had a fantastic stay and loved every minute... More

We were greeted by a staff member on his way to lunch who then stayed to help us park and from then on gave a first class service. He went over and above what we normally get from hotels. The breakfast was delicious and the room. Wry comfortable.

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
