Botany Bay hotel near Broadstairs reopens following £1.4m refurbishment

The 30-bedroom Botany Bay hotel near Broadstairs has reopened following a £1.4m refurbishment by family-owned brewer, Shepherd Neame.

Formerly known as the Fayreness Hotel, the property is situated in Kingsgate, overlooking Botany Bay.

Two traditional orangeries have replaced, conservatories and a wrap-around deck added, while the exterior has been clad in traditional Kentish weatherboarding.

All the bedrooms have been refurbished, with natural sand and blue-green colours and artwork of local scenes reflecting the coastal setting.

Fifteen new positions have been created at the hotel, taken the total number of staff up to 50.

Jonathan Neame, chief executive of Shepherd Neame, said: "We are thrilled to unveil this exciting new development overlooking Botany Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in Britain.

"This significant refurbishment is not just about investing in the hotel, but the coastal area of East Kent. Not only have we have created a significant number of new hospitality and catering roles, but the presence of a stylish destination hotel will provide a boost for the local tourism market."
