Your Destination

The Marquis at Alkham is located in a picture-perfect setting at the heart of the Alkham Valley, within the Kent Downs - a recognised Area of Outstanding National Beauty. This relaxing setting is within easy reach of the Kent coast, and pretty cities such as Canterbury.

Kent is known as "The Garden of England",  thanks to its abundance of beautiful natural scenery. Cycling, horse riding and walking are the best ways to explore the surrounding countryside, and can be easily arranged through the hotel.

Delve into the area's history and culture at Leeds Castle, Dover Castle & Canterbury Cathedral, or visit one of the local vineyards to learn more about the wines you've been drinking at the hotel, and soak up the gorgeous views. (Chapel Down).

The Marquis at Alkham 5*

This 200-year-old inn has been converted into a luxury boutique hotel and fine dining restaurant, following a £1.5 million renovation in 2008.

The multiple award winning restaurant, recommended in the Michelin Guide 2017, serves locally sourced food and wine – whether it’s the catch of the day landed by the local fishing boats, rabbit from the Alkham Valley, or wild herbs foraged straight from the countryside.

Interiors are traditonal and cosy, with exposed brickwork creating a rustic feel, and modern luxuries such as underfloor heating in the beautiful bathrooms.

Each of the ten bedrooms has views across the Alkham Valley - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of the Kent Downs.

Fashionable former pub with a smart bar, a stylish dining room and a relaxed atmosphere. Accomplished cooking features classic combinations with original touches and modern presentation. The lunch menu is good value and they even have their own sparkling wine!
