"Wonderful relaxing stay in this quirky old Edwardian hotel. We would most definately come here again"
My partner and I stayed at the Walpole Bay Hotel for two nights (with breakfast) whilst we visited Margate. We made good use of the bar area, had a look around the museum and dined in the restaurant on our first evening. Everyone at the hotel was very welcoming and I am indebted to Mrs Bishop and her staff who helped me to propose to my partner (now my fiancee); procuring the flowers and champagne that I asked for (on a Sunday) and later upgrading us to a larger suite free of charge, wonderful.

Likes:
The lovely period features (such as the 1920's lift or the grmophone in the bar), friendly staff, hearty traditional food (excellent fish) and a fine selection of local ales. The museum is a must see.
Dislikes:
The shower could have been a bit more powerful and there was a little bit of dust in the room on the first night but these are minor quibbles really.

"I''d recommend lots of people to visit but actually staying there was very standard"
The hotel is stunning and very unusual but I feel like there could be a few extra members of staff on and the hotel rooms to be to a bit of a higher standard.… Read more

Likes:
I loved walking around the building and finding out about the history
Dislikes:
We waited in the bar for tea and coffee for ages and other people who came in kept having to ring the bell to make an order for drinks as no member of staff was to be seen.

The Walpole Bay Hotel in Cliftonville, Kent, was built for discerning guests in 1914, extended in 1927 and is now being lovingly restored to her former glory. With spacious lounges, a flower decked veranda, Edwardian restaurant, snooker room and a 1920s ballroom, guests will appreciate the level of comfort and service The Walpole provides.

The wonderful 1927 trellis-gated lift serving all five floors is the centrepiece of our ‘Living Museum’ which will eventually encompass the whole hotel. Most of our rooms have balconies, and as The Walpole is positioned at right angles to the cliffs, every room has stunning, uninterrupted sea views.

With our large dining room, ballroom with 1920’s sprung maple dance floor, two bars and extensive facilities we are adaptable and ideal for most events and are an established venue for conferences and exhibitions.

Our Restaurant, Bar Lounge and Terrace serves delicious home cooked foods. Throughout the day we currently serve light snacks and our famous Walpole Cream Teas. Our Traditional Sunday Luncheons, which are renowned and exceptional value, are served at 1pm when our resident pianist begins to play our 1908 pianola.

Nearby, there are many attractions and places of interest to visit such as the Shell Grotto, Quex House, museums and galleries. There are five theatres including the second oldest in Britain, The Theatre Royal, and the smallest, The Tom Thumb. From live entertainment at The Winter Gardens to building sand castles, guests experience no difficulty in finding enjoyment in the area.
Environmental Statement
Currently we recycle all of our commercial glass, cardboard and paper and we have plans in the future to recycle plastics and cans. Reception procedures are becoming more computer rather than paper based and our staff encourage email communications rather than post and reuse paper for reception use. We encourage staff and guests to conserve energy by switching off room amenities when not in use. We also ask guests staying for more than one night to only ask for towels to be changed when completely necessary.
