We were staying in the area and were intending to book a hotel but all were fully booked. I admit to not liking bed and breakfasts. My expereince in the past hasnt been very good, find them usually awful decor and I find they tend to lack privacy so on arriving and struggling to park the car on the narrow road outside and arriving I was already filled with dread. We were greeted by a very warm welcome, clean hallway and a vase of fresh roses.Our furniture in the room was old and dated but definately had a charm to it. At the side of the bed was a shaped glass bottle filled with water. A good filled supply of tea, coffee etc. China bright mugs and chocolate mints on the saucers, was clear that time and thought had been put in to make our stay and room welcome. The bathroom although not large was ample in size to get ready with a good shower. The towels are old and not very fluffy but this is a minor thing and certainly not something that you would fault or not want to stop here for. Breakfast in in the lower ground and not a great view from your tables but again we were greeted by a table that had plates filled with cheese, mea, fresh fruit. There was fresh bread in a basket with 3 different types. Home made yogurt and mixed fruits stewed fruits. Fresh made porridge that was lovely, boiled eggs. We were offered pots of coffee, tea and toast with a good selection of jams etc. Home made smoothies. The time and effort that was put into our breakfast was outstanding. I am used to a cooked breakfast when being away but I would rather have what was offerd here antyime. It is in a good location and within easy walking distance. I liked Broadstairs and was a nice place to take a stroll. I would visit Broadstairs again and would stay at South Lodge again when I next visit.
