    About

    The White Cliffs Hotel is set in the heart of the picturesque village of St. Margaret s-at-Cliffe under a mile from the beautiful beach at St. Margaret s Bay in celebrated White Cliffs Country. This is the closest hotel in England to the coast of France at Calais 21 miles away and is just seven minutes drive from the port and Cruise Terminal at Dover. The hotel is centred around an archetypal Kentish weather-boarded inn that dates back to the 16th Century the style captures the essence of life in coastal England with a contemporary atmosphere and a refreshingly independent feel. The Bay Restaurant & Bar is at the heart of the hotel, as the Michelin Guide would say it s the sort of place worth that s worth a detour if passing through Dover. The place attracts locals who often drop in for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner with friends in the often buzzing and lively atmosphere. There s daily changing Blackboard Menu with The Catch of The Bay and more. There s also our Mile Away Menu on which everything on it comes from within a mile of us and our Seasonally Changing Menu with some perennial favourites such as Fish & Chips in beer batter with real proper chips and mushy peas, 28 day hung Kentish Beef with Béarnaise, Romney Marsh Lamb, Monkshill Farm Pork Chops, Rope-grown Mussels in scrumpy and more. In winter, guests can warm themselves by our roaring log fires whilst in summer they are welcome to enjoy the sun in our beach style walled garden. You can even take a Spa Break here and benefit from the haven of peace and tranquility in the grounds of our sister hotel s fabulous Spa a two minute drive or short stroll away. The White Cliffs Hotel nestles in the heart of the village of St Margarets at Cliffe near Dover, Kent, a Dover hotel ideally situated only ninety minutes drive or 75 minutes by the new High Speed Train service from the city of London & seven minutes drive from the port of Dover.
