The Hythe Imperial Hotel ~ Luxury seaside retreat and Kent Wedding Venue

Today I am delighted to spotlight on the Hythe Imperial Hotel, a luxury seaside retreat and Kent Wedding venue.

The 18th-century manor overlooks the English Channel and what a breathtaking setting to wake up to or a wonderful venue to exchange vows.

The Hythe Imperial has stood at the heart of the beautiful seaside town for hundreds of years.

Replete with Victorian splendour, it offers guests the chance to bask in the coastal air and panoramic sea views.

The name of the pretty seaside town in which the hotel is set stems from the Old English for haven, and that’s exactly what you will find here.

While the Hotel has had various refurbishments, facelifts and additions over the last 100 years, none of these distorted the character and history of this beautiful hotel.

From as far back as 1880, the hotel has many tales to tell, and royal visits, sporting events and world wars all have played a part in the development of the unique character that it holds.

The hotel has had recent refurbished rooms, the tallest chandelier in Europe, and was recently awarded 82% by the AA. The top band for 4 star hotels which goes up to 84%.
