What a lovely place to stay, very clean and comfy. The breakfast (continental) was yummy not a thing missed. Would come back for sure and Broadstairs itself is very nice indeed, visiting Charles dDickens Bleak house is a must, all in all a very enjoyable stay 😊

Had a lovely 2 night stay here, very welcoming. Yes, the room was a bit dated but I actually found it quite quaint and cosy. Big comfy bed to myself and tea/coffee priovided in the room and biscuits too. Generous continental breakfast with meats, cheeses, cereals, bold eggs and hot porridge. Short walk to the beach and town. Would definately... More

My wife and I stayed here one Friday night along with a couple of friends in order to dine at the Tarter Frigate. The welcome we received was warm and friendly and we were shown our rooms with minimal fuss. The rooms themselves were ideal for one night and came with a plentiful range of teas, coffees and bathroom toiletries.... More

I could find no fault with South Lodge. I felt very welcome. The room was lovely; everything I could have wanted was there - comfortable bed - all very clean - kettle - packets of beverages - TV - WiFi - could want for nothing more and the breakfasts were wonderful! Also, it is very convenient for the town and... More

Had a most enjoyable stay at South Lodge. The room was comfortable with plenty of tea and coffee and biscuits left out for us. Breakfast was continental style and really good. We were looked after by a lovely lady called Louise. Would go back.

Only continental/Swiss style cold breakfast if you are into that sort of thing - muesli fruit and yoghurt etc. Clean, welcoming and friendly. Ancient (not antique) furnishings and décor. I would say 3+ not 4 stars compared to other guest houses.

We had a nice room, quiet accommodation and a lovely breakfast in the continental style, a pleasant change from the full English. For us walkers, it was an excellent location, a few minutes from downtown Broadstairs and the sea.

Very well located- close to the town centre and about 10 minutes walk to the train station. The house is large and attractive and our double room had plenty of space. The owners were very welcoming and helpfully recommended places to eat and drink. The breakfast is continental, so no full English but this is more than made up for... More

We stayed here for one night. Good location with parking and a 5 minute walk to the shops and sea. The room was lovely with a very comfy bed.

We ended up staying at South Lodge following a last minute decision - we'd been in Broadstairs since the previous day and had made our way to the station to make our way home. Cue a few more beers and then an impromptu decision to stay another night. South Lodge was the nearest to the station so hey presto! We... More
