Its all been said before, but here goes; excellent location overlooking the bay (if you get a sea view room). Comfortable, lively-ish bar and coffee shop. Good bar food. Like another reviewer we had room 21 - quirky, well decorated and nice facilites, but there really is poor noise insulation between it and room 22. Why not brick up the adjoining room door?! Staff were a mixture of very friendly and curt (not rude). Exceptionally good breakfast, which we got to enjoy on the terrace in the morning sunshine. A pot of coffee on the table might have been better than the time wasted waiting for one at the buffet. Overall a good stay. Broadstairs is lovely.
