The best breakfast we have ever had the pleasure of eating. A clean and tidy room with an incredible view from the top floor rooms. A great location being near the beach and town, but not busy. Free and easy parking just outside. Highly recommended for a base for exploring.

Great views over stone bay and within walking distance to town, viking bay and joss bay. The view from room 5 is worth getting up early for to see the sun...

We stayed at the Devonhurst for two nights in room 2 which had a flawless, gorgeous balcony view of the English Channel, with all its different dazzling colours and bright white chalk cliffs, the sound of the sea is so relaxing and we got those really loud relaxing sounds of the sea in that room when the back door was...

Spent three very comfortable nights at The Devonhurst. It was spotless, and I had a lovely view of the sea from my room and balcony. Breakfast was freshly cooked, and very tasty, with mostly locally sourced produce. The hotel was in easy walking distance to the town of Broadstairs with its quaint shops and Dickensian history.

Accommodation met all our requirements. The room was spotless, well equipped with some nice little extras. The family run business made us feel very welcome and the breakfast was exceptionally good. Loved the location and having a sea view with added bonus of small balcony.

Perfect location 2 minute walk from town centre and stone beach much quieter than main beach. We had the 2 views room and the views were great waking up and looking over the sea. Family run means a personal and helpful service and breakfast was very good.

Thank you for your great review Alan. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in room 1 (my favourite room!) and our breakfast. We try to pitch ourself as a more traditional guest house rather than a trendy B&B so I am glad that we met with your expectations. We hope to see you again soon.
