Information For Hythe Imperial

The landmark Hythe Imperial hotel has stood in its spectacular setting right on the seafront since the Victorian era.

The historic building which dates from Victorian times has undergone a complete refurbishment over the last four years, including all of its luxury rooms and suites.

We cater for civil ceremonies, civil partnerships and everything in between, with the option of outdoor ceremonies held at the venue’s beautiful gazebo.

Having recently undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment, all guest areas and rooms are spacious and comfortable, with a choice of suites and luxury rooms available for the happy couple and their guests.

Set amid a secret garden with the grand façade of the hotel as a backdrop, the gazebo is available for parties of up to 120, while the impressive Imperial Ballroom is perfect for wedding breakfasts, offering breathtaking views over the English Channel

To add a little extra sparkle, the hotel is also home to Kent’s only Moet & Chandon Champagne Bar.

Every year the Hythe Imperial Hosts a series of Wedding Open Days and Evenings and Wedding Fairs to help couples plan their day. Visitors can take a tour of the hotel and meet a great selection of some of the best local suppliers of everything you need to make your day extra special.

We also have regular special offers designed to help you plan your perfect wedding without breaking the bank.

Our team of wedding coordinators are happy to talk about all requirements for that special day.

Thank you for making our wedding amazing
Thank-you Hythe for the most perfect wedding venue. Your staff team were truly outstanding and made our day the best it could have been.
Would highly recommend Hythe Imperial for a wedding venue or even just an overnight stay. The accommodation, food, staff and hotel itself is amazing and I cannot fault them.

Pure Delight
We feel we must write to express our delight at our wedding at the Hythe Imperial. When we first chose the Imperial we looked at several venues but found none were as enthusiastic or as helpful with our planning of our wedding as all your staff. It didn't matter who we dealt with everyone was cheerful and helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble.
The venue was prepared immaculately and we have since found that staff were working until 2am to prepare the ballroom. Dedication indeed.
Many of our guests stayed in the hotel and all commented on the standard of the rooms and the food. Indeed one was so impressed she asked for the recipe of a sauce that accompanied the wedding breakfast and the chef shared it willingly.
On the day of the wedding we were very reassured by the careful organisation and support by all the staff. We were checked on to ensure that we were OK and we needed nothing.
Both the ceremony room and the Ballroom looked stunning and were much commented on by all our guests.
We took advantage of the gardens and were able to have some lovely photos taken in the pagoda. The children were also able to make use of the garden thanks to the weather, this was much appreciated as young children sometimes do need a space to let off steam.
We can only thank you for turning our special day into an extra special day. It should be added that we were very pleased with the price as well, we settled on the £4000 package which included most of our needs and any extras were reasonably priced Our thanks again.

Had our wedding here and there should be a six star rating. Every guest commented on the venue, the service, the food and the wonderful rooms. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. We were made to feel special at every moment. Cannot praise this place enough. Top notch service at a reasonable price.

Hythe Imperial Hotel Thank you SO much from me and Jamie for looking after us not only on our wedding day but also the night before. David and the team on the day were absolutely first class and made the day run so smoothly. I can't say enough how much we appreciated David's organisation and the whole team at the hotel for looking after us and our guests! The food was delicious; the rooms for guests and ourselves were luxurious and comfortable and the spa facilities were good to the next day! THANK YOU
Response from Hythe Imperial
We are very pleased you had a lovely day and wish you and Jamie a lifetime of happiness.

Thank You Hythe Imperial
Mr and Mrs Thornton would like to thank the Hythe Imperial for an absolutely beautiful wedding day that run so incredibly smoothly and without a single glitch.
Due to the utter dedication and professionalism of the wedding coordinator and the team along side her.
There was months of preparation and Rebecca was there from the beginning to end, making sure every little detail we asked for was achievable. She was always available to discuss any little worry I had before the big day.
We also cannot thank the toast master Russel enough for for his utter professionalism. He took complete control of our day organising everything and making all announcements, he also made us feel so relaxed. Russel was included in our wedding package and I believe that he is an essential part of the day and without him our memories wouldn't be the same.
The food service and drink service was divine and to a high standard, all our guest commented on how amazing the food was presented and tasted.
The in house florist Daryn @Jamesbernard is an absolute credit to The Hythe Imperial and were so dedicated in creating the most perfectly beautiful arrangements.
I also want to thank the amazing photographer Darren Musgrove Photography for capturing our day perfectly and grasping even more beauty and charm that emerge throughout the Hythe Imperial hotel and ballroom. He was so creative and skillful, every edit was completely and utterly polished and have made both me and my husband look back at our memories with complete joy.
Me and my husband would both whole heartily recommend the Hythe Imperial for the wedding of a life time

What can we say.....
We got married at The Hotel Imperial on Friday 1st December and what can we say..... We had the most magical, festive and perfect day. Rebecca Taylor was amazing from start to finish, holding meetings, full communication and even ensuring the venue was decorated to our liking on the morning. The staff were all professional and approachable and nothing was a problem for them. We were also upgraded to the exceptional Belcourt Suite with outstanding 180 degree views, and we were welcomed with Champagne after our wedding reception. I would highly recommend The Hythe Imperial Hotel if you are thinking about booking your wedding. It was faultless. Mr and Mrs Mitchell
