Stayed at the Walpole Bay this weekend while visiting family. The hotel and museum are a delight. Very friendly and efficient staff, especially Dee on reception. Room was very clean, welcoming and well equipped and the balcony was an exceptional bonus. Can't recommend highly enough.

The hotel is nearer Cliftonville and it is a little walk into Margate. When we stayed we ate at the hotel. There are lovely coastal walks either way.
