Belvidere Place

A unique atmosphere of comfort and style in the heart of the beautiful seaside town of Broadstairs, Belvidere Place is somewhere entirely original.  Each room is individually designed, with unusual, one-off pieces of furniture and sleek, contemporary bathrooms.  Breakfasts are freshly made from local produce, and, most importantly, the welcome is always warm.

What people have said

“Belvidere Place is where you may bump into a supermodel, a restaurateur or just someone who needs time ‘to get their head together man’. It’s run by the extraordinary Jilly Sharpe …

“Belvidere Place, an intimate boutique hotel in Broadstairs, is a favourite among creative, media and technology companies. This double fronted town house, built in 1800, is decorated with extraordinary salvage…the firelit sitting room, with its 1930’s table football, doubles as a conference room. Breakfast is hearty, but there is no menu: the dishes change daily. Blood sausage and apple parmentier is a highlight.”

The Financial Times, 26  January 2015

“We checked into Belvidere Place, a stylish bed-and-breakfast in a Georgian townhouse opened four years ago by Jilly Sharpe, a photographer from Southeast London. Ms. Sharpe said the idea was for guests to feel as if they were in her home, but also to have a place where much of the art and vintage furniture that adorns the hotel is for sale, as in a French atelier.” 

The New York Times, 27 June 2014

“Stay at Belvidere Place b & b, Broadstairs, a breath of fresh air with its mixture of contemporary and vintage furnishings and seasonal, locally sourced food on the breakfast menu.”

The Telegraph, 17 June 2014

“The description by its convivial owner, Jilly, as “just our house really, with a load of old tat in it” belies its evangelical reviews and swathes of reverential visitors. This relaxed gem of a B&B in Broadstairs is decorated in hues of moody greys, antique furniture and original artwork. This is where we spent our anniversary and it is indeed a very special place, very welcoming, very stylish, and it serves a bloomin lovely breakfast.”
