Botany Bay Broadstairs for Easter Thanet for Holidays

Easter is a time for Eggs and Seaside. Thanet has miles and miles of sand beaches and bays most of the popular ones have Life Guards for your added peace of mind. The area has hidden bays and broad sandy beaches ideal for children to  explore and hunt for fossils or build sand castles. Thanet has it all, perched on the southern most tip of England we often have our own little Micro Climate missing the worst of the weather and can be soaked in sunshine when the rest of the county are cloudy. I imagine a weather forecaster's nightmare because we are often so different. Margate has some fantastic places too stay, including the Sands Hotel overlooking the main Margate sands, plus of course The Reading Rooms, a luxury five star Boutique bed & breakfast. Further away from Margate is Cliftonville in the past described as the more genteel area. Many of the old Guest houses that lined Cliftonvilles Avenues are now flats but among the Hotels that do remain are the Walpole Bay Hotel at 5th Ave, Margate, Kent CT9 2JJ  a stunning Edwardian Hotel built in 1914 Described in their website :- From the moment you enter The Walpole Bay Hotel you step back in time to the ambience of a bygone era. Whether your visit be on business or for pleasure you will appreciate the level of comfort and service the Walpole provides, with our spacious lounges, flower decked veranda, Edwardian restaurant, snooker room and our 1920's Ballroom with its original sprung maple dance floor. The Walpole has a full licence and two bars in which to entertain you. The Walpole's wonderful 1927 Otis Trellis gated lifts serves all five floors and is the centre piece of our Museum. The Living Museum will eventually engulf the entire Hotel and it is most interesting browsing through our memorabilia and documentation or absorbing our educational displays on the Isle of Thanet with its 26 miles of sandy beaches, geological features and archaeological remains.

The  Sun Sea and Sand are all rolled into one at Botany Bay where recently one of Thanet's most popular hotels was sold to Faversham Brewers Shepherd Neame it was previously called the Fayreness Hotel and will be remembered by many for its stunning views overlooking the world famous Botany Bay. The Hotel has now been renamed as The Botany Bay Hotel which considering its location didnt take a lot of imagination once they decided to change the name.
