The Hythe Imperial Hotel stands on the seafront of Hythe in Kent

The Hythe Imperial has stood on the seafront 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 stems from the Old English for Haven, and that’s exactly what you’ll find at the Hythe Imperial. The hotel has undergone constant development and improvement over the years. The facilities are bound to delight, with afternoon tea, spa, golf, Champagne bar, coast restaurant and also a venue for weddings, and the team pride themselves on making all guests feel completely at home.

With 92 bedrooms and no two being the same, all rooms at the Hythe Imperial are as individual as the guests who come to stay. They range from intimate and cosy, to spacious and decadent; sea view or garden view; even cottage-style suites and family rooms with bunk beds.

Whether it’s fine dining you are looking for or something more informal, the Hythe Imperial has a variety of dining options to suit all needs and tastes. They offer a good choice of quality dishes and where possible use the finest ingredients from the best local suppliers – including wonderfully fresh fish and seafood with menus changing upon the seasons to ensure the dishes are served always at the very peak of their flavour.

The Hythe Imperial is proud to be the home of a Moët & Chandon champagne bar. Champagne lovers are invited to recline in this ice paradise of a bar, and enjoy with breath-taking views of the seafront a glass of “the champagne of success and glamour since 1743”.  Don’t miss out on treating yourself or your loved ones to our delicious sharing platters.
