Welcome to The Royal Norfolk Hotel in Sandgate, Folkestone

We are an independent family-owned hotel in Sandgate, near Folkestone, in Kent. Mother and daughter team, Sandra and Georgia, fell in love with the Royal Norfolk Hotel back in 2009 and turned it into both a home and a business. Together with our family and friends we have strived to transform, evolve and upgrade the property to ensure that your experience with us will be as memorable as possible.

The Royal Norfolk - Sandgate Hotel

The Hotel is situated a stone’s throw from the beach and overlooks Sandgate Castle, built for Henry VIII in the 16th century. Sandgate village is in Hythe Bay, a hidden oasis by the sea in the Garden of England.

The Royal Norfolk Hotel offers comfortable and well appointed accommodation. Our facilities include a busy bar serving homemade hearty food and private off-road parking. Our en-suite rooms are equipped with a beverage tray, a television, radio alarm and hairdryer.

At the heart of the hotel is Gee’s Bar, a warm, friendly, family spot offering fresh, quality home-cooked food. Food is served in the bar or in our cosy dining room until 8pm Monday to Saturday and until 6pm on Sundays. As well as a fine assortment of premium draught lagers, wines and sprits, Gee's bar hosts an eclectic mix of popular live music on most weekends and is open until 1am on Fridays and midnight on Saturdays. Our Sun Terrace has a retractable roof so you may enjoy the glorious coastal sunshine or shelter from the wind and rain.
