We were looking for a place to hold my Father-In-Law's surprise 80th Birthday Party, and came across The Walpole Bay Hotel in February, and had an excellent Sunday lunch, allowing us to have a look around the Hotel at that time. We secured a number of Rooms for the Family and friends to join us. The family run Hotel was very accommodating for our needs. We had a sumptuous buffet for the party itself in their Ballroom, the food, service and staff were Excellent throughout. From planning the event, to the actual surprise itself. It wasn't until after our first visit, that we then discovered that the weekend coincided with Margate's 'Big Event'. Of course, there is a fun fair, but the great major attraction was also the Air Show. The Hotel was perfectly positioned for the whole event, so most of the family stayed the entire weekend. Our Family and friends have all been in communication since, and all agree, the Hotel and its Team were perfect for us, and we will all be back! The Museum pieces within the Hotel are an excellent side attraction as well.
