The area around our Broadstairs Hotel

The crest motto of Broadstairs is Stella Maris – ‘Star of the Sea’, and it’s easy to see why. Its Blue Flag sandy beaches, such as the famous horseshoe-shaped Viking Bay, are a favourite spot for both tourists and locals. In fact, Broadstairs was Charles Dickens’ favourite holiday spot, and you’ll find Dickens House Museum in the town to commemorate his history in the local area.  

The surrounding coast is also well worth taking the time to explore. The seaside towns of Margate and Ramsgate sit either side of Broadstairs, and boast 15 sandy beaches and bays between them! All offer the perfect place to stroll in the sunshine after a delicious meal in our gorgeous restaurant, or a great night’s sleep in our Broadstairs hotel

Broadstairs has a delightful range of independent shops in the traditional High Street, cliff top walks to neighbouring Ramsgate and Margate, mini-golf, beachside cafés, cosmopolitan restaurants, literary, culinary and musical festivals, plus a gem of a cinema and a community theatre.

There really is something for everyone to enjoy in Broadstairs and the surrounding areas. From sunbathing and cliff-top strolls, to shopping-til-you-drop, basing yourself at our hotel on Broadstairs seafront puts you at the heart of the action.
