Really enjoyed our stay at Botany Bay Hotel for 2 nights. Comfy rooms, good choice of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nice to have tea/coffee/biscuits and water complimentary in room. Ideal location to do coastal walk to Margate (2.5 miles) and then to Broadstairs...More

We visited on a Friday afternoon for a quick drink whilst out on a walk. Friendly bar staff and good range of drinks. Lovely to sit outside in the large sunny patio.

Visited recently for a meal for several of us. Menu was extensive and the portions were really generous. The staff were attentive without being in your face. 1st time visit, would definitely go back.

We came down for a Turner Museum exhibition and made a weekend out of it. The Hotel/Restaurant was just superb, with freshly cooked food from fresh ingredients, great atmosphere and very comfortable room. Special attention was paid to our dog who was made very welcome.

Nice pub and handy for a drink after a winters walk on Botany Bay, just don’t order food. I reckon you’ve got to try pretty hard to mess up a burger but it would seem that it’s quite possible. It tasted of nothing and cooked...More

We visited The Botany Bay Hotel restaurant yesterday as a party of six celebrating a family members 90th birthday. Unfortunately, the visit was very disappointing. The food was bland (so much so that one person left their main meal practically untouched) and some steaks were...More
