Constructed in 1760, the 21-bedroom hotel is situated in the heart of the quaint cobbled streets of Broadstairs, and boasts a commanding position on the clifftop overlooking Viking Bay.
The extensive four-month programme of work included building a new conservatory on the former raised decking area, which can accommodate up to 45 diners, and offers spectacular sea views. The hotel’s à la carte restaurant has also been remodelled to create a more light and airy feel, with new décor and furniture throughout.
New equipment has been installed in the hotel kitchen, which has undergone a revamp, and the toilets have been refurbished, with the ladies’ facilities relocated to the ground floor from the basement for convenience.
Outside, the garden has been re-landscaped, with new furniture, colourful planters and a new decking area. The rear gardens lead out onto the town’s seafront promenade, with direct access to the sandy beaches.
The Royal Albion now features a coffee shop, a bar and a restaurant with 150 covers inside and 100 outside. The new look of the hotel is fantastic, the investment into the hotel has allowed them to cater for more patrons which is perfect for such a busy seaside venue.
