“Unexpected gem, lives up to all the reviews and more.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Travelling on business you get used to a regular parade of mainstream box hotels, where the only differentiator is how many languages the staff speak displayed proudly on their badges.
So I'm in Margate on business without the usual chain for the PA to book me into, I took a chance and dipped into the seafront B&B expecting a frosty, starched sheet, in bed by 10 welcome.
Jilly soon dispelled that expectation, she called me John when I made the booking not Mr Smith (names changed to protect the innocent), welcomed me like an old friend and proceeded to show me round the wonderful place that is Belvidere Place.
Warm, exotic touches in all the decoration, great eye for all the detail to make it feel a home from home, and space like you wouldn't expect in a chain suite.
I will come back next time In Broadstairs, and I will come back on my own time, driving every one of those 300 miles looking forward to the warmth and personal engagement we all love.
I've got t mention Gus of course, (aka Noel Fielding) great host, good local knowledge and his own line of hand made clothes!

So glad you found us and that you had such a positive trip.

When alone and away on business its important to find somewhere that feels friendly and comfortable to stay, I am glad you felt at home.

It is very very kind to find time to place this very generous message on Tripadvisor. It was a pleasure to meet you and we look forward to seeing you again.. lets hope the weather is better next time gosh we have had some rain this week. Good news is its sunny and just lovely again today.

Thank you John

Love Jilly and Gus

Can't recommend Belvidere Place enough, though we have been trying! Jilly is a wonderful host, the breakfast was delicious, a three course breakfast that my girlfriend described as 'dining like the queen.' The rooms are furnished beautifully and have lots of space. It was just the ideal place to stay really. It was also very gay-friendly, we felt very welcome, safe and comfortable there as a couple. We're definitely planning to return.

We had a fantastic weekend in Broadstairs - not least due to our stay at the wonderful Belvidere Place. Jilly was a great host, welcoming us with tea and cake, and made us feel right at home upon arrival. The place perfectly blends vintage and contemporary furnishings in the most charming way and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The house is within walking distance to the beach (2 mins) and is located right in the centre of the town. As others have said, the breakfasts are wonderful and definitely worth coming back for! We would certainly recommend Belvidere place and Jilly's hospitality to any traveller!

This was without doubt the most delightful Bed & Breakfast we have ever stayed in anywhere. Every aspect of our stay was perfect, it's difficult to find different ways to say what has already been said below, but Jilly and Gus were the perfect hosts, the rooms were beautifully appointed and as for breakfast, never before have we been asked what colour of tomatoes we would like! Without doubt one of the most outstanding meals that we've ever eaten and it's not often you can say that about a breakfast. It goes without saying that The Belvidere comes highly recommended and we will definitely be back. James & Hollie. x

I have just returned to London with my wife after a breathtaking Valentine's stay at Belvidere Place.

Stunned by the place with its eclectic mix of retro furniture (but very cosy) as well as the warmth of the host Gilly (without being instrusive) and don't get me started on the breakfasts (hot fruit compote on porridge followed by big fry up including Black Pig sausages anyone?)

Belvidere House Valentine's card, heart shaped fried egg (yes!) and red roses on the breakfast table. Beyond the call...

I don't really want to say much more as everyone will go and wont be able to book it up for guaranteed repeat visits! May even bring the kids next time ;-)
