Flanked on three sides by water, Kent boasts some 150 miles of coastline, ranging from the white sand beaches of Ramsgate and shingle expanses of Dungeness (Britain’s only desert) to the chalk cliffs of Dover and oyster shell littered beaches of Whitstable. The hotels that dot the county’s diverse coast are equally varied, running the littoral gamut from slick, Margate-cool and Folkestone-hip boutique hotels to artsy b&bs and homely restaurants with rooms. Here’s our pick of the best hotels on the Kent coast, in locations including Whitstable, Margate, Folkestone, Broadstairs, Ramsgate and New Romney.
