Comfortable, sparkling clean and well-organised. Hearty breakfast adapted to suit. Spacious visitor's lounge to relax in. Happy to recommend this v pleasant B&B with its lovely garden and beautiful view of the sea to enjoy whilst eating breakfast! Kate J

We have just spent 3 glorious nights and days at Broadstairs. Upon arrival at Anchor Lodge I was a little concerned that there are only 2 letting rooms that are very much part of the home of the owers Geoff and Barb and that it would feel a little strange having "shared" space. How wrong could I have been. Both Barb and Geoff are the most welcoming hosts that you will ever find and offer the warmest stays, making you feel right at home the minute you arrive. As many people have said before, the quality of the accomodation - Perfect. The quality of the breakfasts - Perfect. If you want anything different, just ask - Nothing seems to be too much trouble. As for the 10 minute stroll into Broadstairs, hey, it will take you longer to park the car in Broadstairs most days and is very pleasant. Can not recommend this little gem highly enough !!!!!

Last week, my wife and I enjoyed a week at Anchor Lodge owned by Barb and Geoff. We arrived in Broadstairs at about 1.30pm and were looking to find somewhere to stop for lunch when Barb rang us. We were about two miles away, but Geoff stayed on the phone and navigated us to the Guest House - very kind. (We had followed the Broadstairs signs from the A253 road – a mistake as these led us through various Retail Parks round the far side of Broadstairs; I would advise future guests to travel through Ramsgate –much easier and quicker.)

Anchor Guest House is situated on a very wide road and parking on this is easy. The front garden is very neat and has a large ship anchor as its centrepiece. Our room was exceptionally clean and very bright (as is the whole house), well furnished with many extra touches, such as a hot water bottle and torch in a drawer stocked with lots of brochures about the area. A thermos flask of cold milk (this was refilled every day) and pot of tea were ready for us.

Barb and Geoff are a very friendly couple, always anxious to please, and provided lots of good local advice. The dining room at the rear overlooks the back garden; there is a large decked area with chairs, tables and bench, ideal for eating outside. Steps lead down past the large fish pond full of goldfish and koi carp on to a long well laid out garden. A summerhouse completes the garden. The view from the dining room is stunning showing the garden, the sea and coastline (a few hundred yards away) and the French coast opposite can be seen on clear days. We also saw green parakeets on three occasions; these have their nests in a nearby park.

Anchor Lodge is situated in an excellent location; it is within a ten minute walk of the town (no need to take the car, so no car parking charges), within five minutes walk of the coast and about a forty minute walk along the coast to Ramsgate.

Barb is very anxious to please and cooked a very good breakfast; anything we asked for was provided and the dining room/guest lounge was always spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the house.

We would highly recommend Anchor Lodge Guest House to anyone visiting the area.

Jim and Jill Watkins.

Room Tip: The Gold Room is much larger than the Tropical Room.

My wife and i have just returned from a stay at the Anchor Lodge in Broadstairs. Having not booked we were delighted to find this absolutely splendid B&B. Barbara and Geoff were a delight, very friendly and it was as though we had known them for years the conversation just flowed. The bungalow is spacious and the view from the guest lounge was stunning looking out over the Channel (all be it a few buildings in the distance). Rooms were beautiful and everything including bedding, towels and pillows were all of the highest quality. As for the breakfast it was just lovely, whether you had full English or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs which were cooked perfectly. Having read the reviews on my return, i am delighted that all but one enjoyed their stay. The person who only gave them a rating of one must have been brain dead..

Room Tip: Both rooms are at the front in a very quiet and up market residential location. Either room was deli...

The Anchor lodge was fantastic. Lovely, super clean room with ensuite, very accessible price. We had a full English Breakfast, freshly cooked by the lovely hostess, who filled us in on local attractions and life in broadstairs. The view from the dining room was amazing with a lovely flowery garden! Accomodation was absolutely lovely and the host were extremely welcoming.
