The Walpole Bay Hotel was built for discerning guests in 1914, extended in 1927 and is now being lovingly restored to her former glory by the Bishop Family. It was built by Louisa Budge and stayed in her family until 1995.

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.

There are so many attractions and places of interest to visit such as The Shell Grotto, Quex House, many museums and Galleries, five theatres including the second oldest in Britain, The Theatre Royal or the smallest, The Tom Thumb. From live entertainment at The Winter Gardens to building sand castles our guests experience no difficulty in finding enjoyment in our area.
