Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 March 2012

This adorable B&B was the perfect place for a realxing weekend away. Owners Bill & Christa were incredibly friendly and helpful, and put on a most wonderful and comprehensive breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely come again.

A very warm welcome awaits you at South Lodge, very comfortable room with plentiful tea, coffee, biscuits, etc. The "continental" breakfast is wonderful with home made bread, smoothies and lots of cheese, cold meat, eggs, porridge and fruit. The Guest House is well placed for the shops, beach and station. Highly recommended.

We made a late booking to this Guest House. The accommodation was superb - probably the softest bed in the whole world! Christa was a very welcoming host. The breakfast was amazing - I would wholeheardly recommend this Guest House over any hotel in the area and would not hesitate to go again.

I completely agree with all the positive comments about this B&B. The welcome is genuinely warm and friendly. The location is great, in a quiet side road within easy walking distance of the sea, restaurants and public transport.. the transport is very good in Broadstairs you don't really need a car. What makes this place stand out from the crowd is the breakfast, it really is very good and Deliciously different! The quality of the ingredients is superb, they use local cheeses and fresh kent apple juice. The owner organises the Broadstairs food festival so you know good food is important to them.

We recently had an overnight stay at South Lodge with another couple and we all agreed that the guest house was a real find, in a great location close to everything and there is off street parking too! The owners, who are very helpful and friendly, have given a lot of thought to what a guest may require during their stay and it is all there - sewing needles and thread, bottle opener, shoe shine kit, dressing gowns and slippers, fictional books, radio, etc. etc.

The room, bathroom and bedding were scrumptiously clean, with comfortable mattress and pillows. There was a good variety of teas, coffees and biscuits and they served a lovely healthy breakfast. My husband said that he would have preferred a full English but went on to comment that he had enjoyed the healthy breakfast option anyway!

We would definately recommend South Lodge.

We'd just like to say that we had a truly magical time in Broadstairs, thanks in large part to Bill and Christa who made us feel so welcome. The room was lovely, the bed comfy but it was the breakfasts that thrilled us. Such variety and all healthy, especially the smoothies! We can't wait to get back later in the year. Thanks Bill and Christa.

From the start, the woman standing in for the owners (unfortunately, I've forgotten her name) was pleasant and very friendly.

Our room was immaculate and pristine. The decor was lovely and understated, without too many frills and furbelows. The beds were very comfortable and long enough for my 6'2" husband. It was also a decent sized room and we had plenty of storage for our luggage.

The shower was a good size - we didn't have to worry about bumping into the walls as we've done in other places. The water pressure was excellent.

I particularly liked the extra touches of cotton swabs and cotton balls.

They offered a continental breakfast instead of the conventional full English. But this was a superb continental - 5 or 6 kinds of cheeses, fresh fruit (like fresh strawberries, kiwis and raspberries, not canned grapefruit), delicious smoothies (which I don't normally have), cold meats, hot porridge, cold cereals, juice, tea & coffee, cold cereal, croissants and rolls, and jams, honey etc. Toast was also available. It was a delicious and freshing change from a full English breakfast.

A very pleasant establishment and I would heartily recommend it.
