Just 4 minutes’ walk from Margate’s Turner Contemporary Art Gallery, The Sands Hotel offers boutique-style accommodation and fine views of the Thanet coast. Just around the corner from the reinvigorated Old Town, this seafront hotel offers free WiFi and high-quality dining at the elegant Bay Restaurant.
Each air-conditioned guest room has a flat-screen TV, wardrobe, desk and safe, and many have sea views. All have a stylish en suite bathroom, all with a bath and some with a walk-in shower.
The Sands Hotel offers a range of breakfasts, including full English and vegetarian. There is also a continental buffet with pastries, cereals, yoghurt and cold meats and cheeses.
With a waterfront terrace and views of the beach, The Bay Restaurant features Kentish produce in its varied lunch and dinner menus. The hotel includes a bar serving wines, cocktails and local beers, and offers freshly made ice cream in its own ice cream parlour. You can also enjoy afternoon tea on the terrace or in the restaurant.
The Sands Hotel is a 7-minute walk from the Winter Gardens Theatre, and Margate is also home to one of the UK’s oldest theatres, the Theatre Royal, and one of the smallest, the Tom Thumb. Historic Canterbury is around 16 miles away, and the characterful coastal town of Whitstable is a 30-minute drive from the hotel.
