Hotels by the sea in Kent

Hotel Continental

Hotel Continental


A beachfront hotel within walking distance of the harbour and the high street. Some of the compact, light and simply decorated bedrooms have far-reaching views over the Thames Estuary (binoculars provided). Even closer to the shore, former fishermen’s stores on the sea wall have been converted into appealing self-contained units (some have steep stairs). Fresh-from-the-sea oysters and mussels feature on the French-style brasserie menu. Breakfasts must be pre-booked.

Hotels by the sea in Kent: From romantic hotels to seafood favourite restaurants with rooms

So famously celebrated as a the garden of England, Kent is also a charmed part of the UK for hotels by the sea. From Dickens’ Bleak House and the bohemian allure of Broadstairs, to Tracey Emin’s Margate. Ice cream coloured beach huts to seaside fairgrounds, local art and culture to literary history and traditions, hotels by the sea in Kent provide rest, relaxation and inspiration.

Part of the beauty of hotels by the sea in Kent is the variety of locations, views and experiences that they all have to offer. At one, for example, you get to experience 1920s style surrounded by the beauty of the Romney marshes, while in Margate you can watch the world going by as well as being mere moments from the sea itself.

Alternatively, in Ramsgate you will find a haven of creative style and plenty of places to people watch whilst enjoying superb food and drink. Then again, fashionable Whitstable prides itself on its quintessentially boutique and British style, capitalising on the excellent local seafood and welcoming chic families as well as couples on romantic mini breaks. It’s also hard to beat Folkestone foodie favourites overhanging the water for the best sea views in town.
