The owners, Alistair and Robert, have two pooches, so unsurprisingly the hotel is dog-friendly.

For an extra £10 per night, guests can stay with their pet in the ground- floor Willow room, which comes with complimentary dog treats and a microfibre pet towel.

What is there to do at The Bay Tree?

It's close to all of the town’s main attractions, including the Dickens House Museum, dedicated to the 19th-century writer who regularly holidayed in Broadstairs.

For something more lively, though, Margate is a ten minute drive away and had trendy shops, bars and restaurants.

What is there to eat and drink at The Bay Tree?

The small sea-view restaurant offers simple dishes, well executed.

I had calamari to start and steak for my main, and both were tasty and well presented.

The Bay Tree offers a delicious “full Kentish breakfast” with plump sausages, black pudding, bacon and hash browns.

What are the rooms like at The Bay Tree?

The ten bedrooms have been tastefully refurbished with antique furniture, plush fabrics, comfy beds, smart TVs and modern bathrooms.

Four rooms offer sea views, one of which is the wonderfully relaxing Maple room, where I stayed, which looked over the cliffs and water.

How much is The Bay Tree?

A double room costs from £85 including breakfast. See baytreebroadstairs.co.uk or call 01843 862502.
