This is the second time we have stayed at South Lodge. This time we stayed for a couple of nights for Folk Week (would love to have stayed longer but other nights were sadly all fully booked) Bill and Christa are amazing hosts and although attentive they are not over the top! They make it their mission to ensure you... More

We stayed at south lodge just for 1 night as a last minute trip. Bill and Christa are both very friendly and attentive, slept like a baby in the rooms which are a very nice size along with a decent on-suite. Breakfast was great, a wide selection of choice, staff making sure we were all catered for throughout. Highly recommend... More

This B&B is only a short walk from the beach and everything else Broadstairs has to offer, so the location was great. The hosts were always very friendly and polite, they seemed genuinely interested in our plans for each day and were happy to advise. Even though parking is stated as limited, the house has a long driveway which holds... More

This is one of the best guest houses I have ever stayed in. The room was nicely decorated with very comfortable beds and a lovely en suite shower room. Good quality toiletries supplied and also a good selection of teas, coffees and hot chocolate plus biscuits. The guest house is about 5 minutes walk from the lovely beach and the... More

My husband and I stayed for a wonderful two night getaway whilst our teenage daughter was camping with The Guides. South Lodge is a very welcoming place, very clean, well kept and comfortable. There are nice touches like toiletries, hair drier and tea and a well stocked tea and coffee making equipment. The breakfasts were lovely; nice bread, cereals, porridge,... More

This B&B is one of the best I have ever stayed in. Room was big, ensuite toilet and shower very good. Shower was large and had great pressure and temperature control. House is a short walk from the great Viking bay beach and local shops. Location is quiet and I was on the ground floor and slept very well. Continental... More

Heath Thank you for your review. We are pleased your trip was a great success and you found some interesting characters. Broadstairs is an old fashioned lovely seaside town, and we would not want to live anywhere else. We "found" Broadstairs 11 years ago, moved into South Lodge 6 months later, and have been pleased we did. It is a... More

My friend and I got back today after staying two nights. The owners were away and we were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming lady. Just a 10 minute walk to the sea and local amenities; very easy. Although advertising and continental breakfast, there was porridge and home made stewed fruits with spices. Handmade smoothie, a selection of cheeses,... More
