We needed to stop in Margate for the weekend and wanted to avoid the terrors of the traditional bed and breakfast and not have to suffer the corporate uniformity of a Travel Lodge type establishment.
The antidote to all these things has to be the Walpole Bay Hotel. Situated on the cliff overlooking the Channel with great sea views this is an atmospheric hotel that combines the most fascinating decor and interior with great service and all done with a massive dollop of panache. Despite the combination of historic artefacts and more than a nod to the art world the service and disposition of the people who work there is friendly and efficient in an unobtrusive and helpful way.
Our en suite room was comfortable and homely whilst still providing all the usual modern amenities.
We booked an evening meal and had a good supper in the excellent dining room following drinks in the well stocked bar. The breakfast offered an extensive choice which we were able enjoy at one of the many tables with a view over the bay.
I could bang on about the amazing contents of this eclectic hotel; the games room , the lift , the napery and so on but the best way to discover the secrets of the Walpole Bay Hotel is to book in and find out for yourself.

Stayed at the Walpole Bay this weekend while visiting family.
The hotel and museum are a delight.
Very friendly and efficient staff, especially Dee on reception.
Room was very clean, welcoming and well equipped and the balcony was an exceptional bonus.
Can't recommend highly enough.

The hotel is full of character and charm and a must for vintage lovers. Edwardian era long and lift and packed with interesting art and curios. The rooms are perfectly comfortable even though the plumbing is a bit dated and you can hear the water in the pipes but the heating and hot water is up to date. We had a small balcony with a sea view. The hotel is about a twenty minute walk into central Margate in a quiet side street. Breakfast was decent : fried eggs, bacon, sausages, cereal etc but certainly nothing fancy or gourmet. There is a lovely breakfast room and beautiful outside terrace. Essentially you come for the vintage atmosphere over amenities.
Thank NewYorkH

We recently held our 20th Anniversary party for family and friends at this hotel. They could not have been more helpful and every single one of our guests had the most wonderful time. Nothing was too much trouble for Jane, Justin, Gemma and their team. Highly recommend.
