Work has begun on a £500,000 refurbishment project at the Marine Hotel in Tankerton near Whitstable.
The Shepherd Neame hotel, which boasts impressive sea views, is to undergo a substantial transformation of its bar and lounge area, restaurant, reception and Orangery.
The Orangery is to be expanded towards the car park at the rear of the building, doubling the size of the space available. Reception will also be expanded, taking over some of the area currently used by the restaurant. New lighting, décor and furniture will be introduced throughout, with the aim of creating a more stylish, relaxed environment.
The project is expected to take around three months, and the 30-bedroom hotel will remain open while the work is completed.
Nigel Bunting, Director of Retail and Tenanted Operations, said: “It has been almost five years since we undertook a major transformation of the Marine Hotel, and we felt that it was time for it to be refreshed. The site continues to be one of our most popular venues, so the expansion of the orangery will also provide much needed additional space.”
