"We loved the unique ambience and ethos of the hotel and had a wonderful experience."
We were there for the weekend to discover and enjoy Margate, and the hotel was an excellent base. The room was a good size, warm and comfortable. The staff were always friendly and helpful. We had one evening meal which was delicious (apart from some broccoli which seemed off). We loved the museum aspect and seeing all the interesting memorabilia and artwork on the napkins. Breakfast was good standard fare. Enjoyed the fresh fruit and croissants on Sunday more than canned grapefruit. Read less
Likes:
Summarised above. I wonder if you could be more inventive with breakfast, reflecting the nostalgic feel along side the new and artistic? eg selection of different breads like sourdough.
Dislikes:
Just one disappointment-the shower did not work well and on Sunday the water was narely hot enough to wash, though i ran the tap for long time. I understand the buidling is old but could this improve?

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.
