What is there to do at The Yarrow Hotel?

The sandy shores of Viking Bay are just half a mile down the road and surrounded by quaint little beach cafes and shops.

Over in Margate you'll find the Shell Grotto, which is well worth a visit.

No one knows quite how it got there or what it was used for, but this little temple covered in 4.6 million cockle, whelk, oyster and mussel shells is a remarkable work of art.

If you're more of a beachy type, there's seven to pick from – all are nearby and many have Blue Flag awards.

What is there to eat and drink at The Yarrow Hotel?

The chic restaurant is seen as one of Broadstairs' best, thanks to head chef, Ben Williams

We had salmon rillettes followed by pork belly, cabbage, fondant potato and apple puree, both of which were delicious and beautifully presented.

The food on the imaginative menu is seasonal and predominantly local.

Breakfast is a buffet with fresh-baked pastries as well as cooked options such as smoked-salmon scrambled eggs.

The staff, many of whom are apprentices and trainees from East Kent College, are polite, attentive and enthusiastic. 

What are the rooms like at The Yarrow Hotel?

There are 23 spacious rooms and five suites, decorated in coastal blue, white and cream.

We stayed in a spacious junior suite with high ceilings and windows, superking bed and 50inch telly.
