5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Pleased to see that standards are being maintained. Although our stay was for only 2 nights we could not have been made to feel more welcome.

It was very pleasing to find that the quality of ( particularly) the breakfasts is fast becoming a by-word with the locals.

We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Rooms 3 and 7 have particularly good views across the bay from, appropriately, a comfortable bay win...

The Broadwater is definitely one of the best guest houses we have stayed in! We found Jean and Alex to be friendly and interesting to talk to; lovely people running a lovely establishment. We chose room 7 for our 5 nights stay, as we wanted the fantastic bay view and the opportunity to watch the fabulous Morecambe sunsets. Views aside, however, the room itself was spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed, and a lovely en-suite with a walk-in shower that worked well.
One pleasing touch was the small residents' lounge with sea view, stocked with information about the local area, and a selection of books to borrow. Another was the information folder in the room with some information about Jean and Alex themselves, their family, and The Broadwater property.
The location is ideal as it is not too far from central Morecambe, and we found it to be quiet- only some slight road noise which didn't interfere with our sleep. Free parking outside on the road was also a bonus, and the one time we couldn't get a spot, the car was perfectly safe in a nearby car park which costs only 50p for 24 hours.
Alex cooks a fantastic full English, and provides his own home-made marmalade which is very tasty. Jean always provides a warm welcome for all guests on coming down for breakfast, and nothing is too much trouble. Would have loved to have stayed for a bit longer than we did, and the next time we plan to come to Morecambe, our first choice will be The Broadwater. We would recommend Jean and Alex and The Broadwater to all our family and friends.

Booked a single night stay over the phone at short notice, arrived earlier than expected so popped to the Broadwater to let them know we were in the area and would call back later, the room was already prepared so we dropped our bags and went for a tour of the area. The Broadwater is well located for a visit to Morecombe, its on a quiet stretch of the Prom but a pleasant stroll to the main vistor areas. Unlike most other tourist resorts these days, there are no parking restrictions outside the Broadwater, so no need to waste half of your stay or getting up at the crack of dawn to relocate your car to avoid the dreaded traffic warden.
The hotel is spotlessly clean, Jean, the landlady quickly provides details of whats what and is very pleasant.
We were shown to room 2, located at the back, (no sea view but we were only there for one night so it was never going to be a deal breaker). Our room was more than adequate with a large comfy bed, a modern well appointed en-suite, TV, seating area and tea coffee facilities.
Breakfast was excellent, in fact it was better than excellent, and would recommend the Broadwater as a place to stay even if the room had contained a hammock and tin bath......as long as they dont change the breakfast!

A big thank you to Alex and Jean for providing not only a beautiful room, a warm and friendly welcome, but also the perfect breakfast to start a superb holiday. The food was excellent and the veiws from the dining area were superb. The information on things to do in morecambe and the position of the guest house mean your just a short walk from the shore front itself. We would definitly stay again, absolutely brilliant.

I wanted somewhere at the east end of Morecambe which was inexpensive. I have stayed in a few of the B&Bs at the West end of Morecambe, which were OK but a bit shabby. Really impressed with the Broadwater - friendly welcome, comfy bed, free wi-fi, brilliant breakfast - what more could you want!

I thought the information folder in the room was a very nice touch - not just the usual set of rules and general info, but a lot of detail about the work that has been done on the property and the ongoing plans, as well as good places to eat and the nearest local shops (being a former local I didn't need much of the information but it would really help a newcomer). The other nice touch is the information about the view and the binoculars on the windowsill.

My single sea view room was small but comfortable and clean, and the sunsets are always worth any money :-) . The shower actually worked properly, which is unusual in a B&B!

Breakfast was excellent and nothing is too much trouble. I had a veggie breakfast - there is a menu but you can mix and match however you want. Another guest there at the same time required gluten free and this was no problem at all. Even big hotels sometimes have problems with specific requirements and rarely cook it so well.

So much thought at so little expense!

Can't fault it - I'll be back!

This is one of the best English B & Bs I've stayed in, and it has been quite a few by now! The single room was a good size, well furnished, with thoughtful detail. Breakfast is fabulous, the view across the Bay to the Lake District hills alone is worth the rates, which by the way are more than reasonable. Basically the only niggle was that the shower was a bit weak, but that's to be expected at the top of an old house. The hosts are very friendly, very helpful, and the regular guests who seem to come back several times a year really know why!
