Valentines Night at The Bay Tree

We are very pleased that Chef Keith Dunstane is now settling well into The Bay Tree and is busy creating all sorts of wonderful dishes for our guests

On our first big day, for Sunday Lunch on 11 February, we welcomed over 20 guests:
Our latest feedback was positive: ‘ ..enjoyed my roast chicken and the crumble to follow was yummy….will be back’ and ‘Went today for Sunday lunch , it was lovely couldn’t fault it looking forward to going back soon’

We think that our sea-view restaurant with it’s spectacular views across stunning Stone Bay, makes for the perfect venue for a romantic meal, especially with guests being welcomed into our sea-view lounge and our library bar before-hand and relaxing with their post-meal drinks afterwards

The Bay Tree Restaurant and New Chef

Our new Chef, Keith Dunstane, who has worked at both the Sands Hotel and Crescent Victoria Hotel in Margate will be cooking for us from Sunday 11 February

To celebrate, this Sunday 11 February we are reducing our Sunday Lunch menu, to £16 for 2 course (usually £20) and £20 for 3 courses (usually £24)

We will be serving lunch from 1230pm until late

Why not join us for a drink in our library bar before or relax in our sea-view lounge before enjoying our Sunday roasts.
We think this is a perfect way to spend a Sunday in Broadstairs!

If you can’t make it to us on Sunday…

Perhaps we can tempt you with our delicious pancakes on Shrove Tuesday 13 February
with a romantic meal on Valentines Day

Bay Tree Broadstairs Refurbishment Week 63

The Bay Tree Broadstairs reopens at 6pm on 23rd December 2017 following a major refurbishment.

Our bar will be open for drinks and mince pies (including for non-resident guests) and we have 6 of our 10 rooms now ready for guests to stay. Our restaurant will be open from Boxing Day.

Please call 01843 862502 for more information.

Please note we are unable to tarmac our drive until early in the new year but we have been able to create a temporary path to the hotel.

We would like to thank all our guests for their patience whilst we have been closed and would like to wish all of our guests a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Our library bar is ready to welcome guests for a festive drink.

Our sea-view lounge is looking amazing, even if we haven’t yet got our drapes up yet.

We are particularly fond of our new chandelier!

Our sea-view restaurant, complete with our original wood floor is ready to welcome guests.

Our entrance hall, again with our original flooring, leads directly into our sea-view lounge and sea-view restaurant.

We are very pleased with our hall chandelier.

We currently have 6 of our 10 guest rooms ready for guests.
Room 4, Rowan, is lovely and bright and features a (non-working) fireplace.
The above picture is a good example of one of our ensuite wet-rooms, which all use Laufen bathroom furniture.R

Room 5, English Oak, is our balcony sea-view room and also features a luxury bathroom.

Room 6, Chestnut, is a sea-view room with a zip and link bed so it can be configured as a twin or super-king room.

Room 7, Walnut, also has a zip and link bed allowing it to be both a twin or super-king room. The smaller window has been made into an oriel window to allow for sea-views.
This room also has an ensuite with a bath, cleverly made by restoring a hidden room at the back of the original bathroom and by digging into the chimney and using this space for a shower (not shown in this picture).

Room 8, Alder, on our top floor features both Juliet balcony windows to allow for sea views and also features our original (non-working) fireplace.


Room 9, Yew, also has Juliet balcony windows and also a triple-aspect sea-view ‘turret’.

Rooms 5, 6,7,8 and 9 are now ready to welcome guests. Rooms 1, 2, 3 and 10 will be ready to welcome guests early in the new year.

Room 10, Maple, with spectacular views over Stone Bay to the cliffs plus a triple-aspect sea-view turret, will be available in the new year. We are just waiting for our drapes to return after being custom-made for our windows.
