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 room is supplied with a fridge with fresh milk and water; plenty of good toiletries in the bath or shower room, dressing gowns in the wardrobe and comfortable beds. The staff were charming, lending me an umbrella for my walk to dinner, and being very helpful in general.
Breakfast in the grand dining room was delicious with all the usual continental choices along with full English or scrambled eggs and smoked salmon (yummy!) or kippers.... I will return!
