A group of 8 of us stayed at the Botony Bay for Broadstairs Blues Bash weekend (February) as couldn't get into any hotels in Broadstairs. We were a bit concerned about distance from Broadstairs, but there was no need to worry at all - cabs were easily available from and to the hotel, and reasonably priced. Hotel was good, although...

Extremely clean and well appointed. We had the sea view rooms with - balcony doors opening over the sea - brilliant view over the... More

Booked hotel as my husband and his family used to visit the bay for their summer holidays and he kept telling me how pretty it was - and he was right the bay is lovely. The hotel was just as good ... If it had spa facilities it would have been perfect ... we loved it but I'm not sure... More

We had booked the family suite for a one night stay. The kids had their own room and we also had a turret upstairs complete with telescope. Great for watching the ships in the channel. The hotel sits perched atop the cliffs above Botany Bay and it is very nicely done out and extremely comfortable. Despite their being a wedding... More

We were in the area and wanted to see the "Stacks" and decided to have some lunch in the hotel bar. We were not disappointed, then even let me order from the children's menu as I don't have a big appetite.

We popped in here for a coffee at the start of a recent day out to the Kent coast. After walking along to Broadstairs and back we decided to have dinner here before returning home as it was such a pleasant environment. We both had the best steak we've eaten in a restaurant for a long time and at a... More

After exploring Botany Bay we stopped for a coffee, sat on the balcony and enjoyed the beautiful views....we then decided to return for dinner. As it was election day and the hotel was being used as a polling station it was very busy in the restaurant as well as a constant stream of people coming in to vote (a one... More

If you want a perfect beach getaway look no further. This is located right on Botany Bay and has stunning views of the coastline. The staff are fantastic and the restaurant is lovely. Will definitely stay here again! Thanks to the hotel for everything. Cheers

We called in here for lunch on a lovely sunny day... the location was ideal. There were no staff in the dining area (a lovely sunny conservatory) so I had to go back to the bar to ask about seating ourselves and getting menus. We were told that the waitress would be with us shortly, but when she returned she... More
