General Information

Broadway House is a family home and business with a warm and friendly environment. We provide high quality bed and breakfast. It was used for the import of cotton from America and elsewhere. Dutch architecture and port buildings of that period are now in residential use and still being seen on the waterfront today.

The house has a grade II* historical listing because of its gate, architecture and interior. There is a fine mahogony staircase with a large pallodion window (used for many a wedding photo!) In the hall are 16/17C spanish leather panels (probably from the Armada) installed from another property when the house was built. Most of the original features of the house are still visible. Most of the rooms are large with plaster cornices and the original shutters a feature of all the rooms still working.

The Georgian Tearoom restaurant has been established in the property for more than 15 years gaining many awards and a widespread reputation for quality and hospitality. The house was converted from bedsits to provide high quality bed & breakfast accommodation. The standard of accommodation, facilities and services offered are steadily improving as we prepare for three star status. Already popular with guests, many have already returned having enjoyed their previous stay.
