Ben, our Bedlington Terrier, is keeping a close watch on the refurbishment of his hotel!


A lot of our new window frames are now in place
If you look closely you will spot some of our builders on the roof…


The builders on the roof are working on the new electric windows we are placing in our roof above our top floor landing


This picture from our first floor landing, looking up towards our top floor, helps show how much light our new roof windows will let in, even on a cloudy day


This is the view from the roof where the roof windows will go – Viking Bay is visible in the distance and Stone Bay, directly in front of The Bay Tree, can be seen on the left

This picture isn’t very exciting but this is the start of the ‘Jackoboard’ wet room flooring, which will keep our ensuite wetrooms and bathrooms completely watertight


Our bay treupposedly the oldest and largest in Kent, at the rear of our hotel as seen from the owners accommodation with it’s own private balcony

This is how the rear of The Bay Tree will look when our work is completed
The rear baloconies for the owners lounge and office can be seen, and below them is the doors of the private terrace for Room 1, Willow, with our rear entrance next in the centre and part of our kitchen on the left.
On the top floor are the Velux ‘Cabrio’ windows for the owners bedroom and the owners bedroom roof window.
This picture doesn’t show the roof windows at the front of the building
Some of our oriel windows (we’ll also use these on the other side of the hotel which isn’t visible in this picture) can be seen.
Our Juliet balcony windows, which will go where there is a white panel above our front door but on our top floor, are also not visible in this picture

This is an example of a picture we have bought – not for the artwork but so we can restore the frames to use in sea-view lounge, sea-view restaurant and library with some exciting artwork we have been procuring


We have also been making final choices of carpets (houndstooth to 20170421_134509

We are progressing with putting skirting boards in place


Lastly, our new owl has just arrived at The Bay Tree, to live in our library

We’d love to hear name suggestions…
