The Falstaff Ramsgate - Hotel & Restaurant

The Falstaff is a boutique hotel and restaurant that takes its name from the historic inn that occupied this building for over 200 years. We launched at the end of 2015 after a meticulous 3-year restoration. The building's charm and character now shine through in each of our 8 luxurious en-suite rooms, complemented by carefully selected vintage furniture and bespoke fittings.


The Falstaff Ramsgate has been totally transformed.  The Hotel has eight individually designed bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.  We also have three self-catering apartments, one with a sea view


Originally built as two houses in 1801, they were combined and altered into the Falstaff public house at some time between 1821 - 1840.  The building is thought to have connections with Sir Arthur Wellesley - the Duke of Wellington. It has an ornately decorated room at the rear of the building (the Waterloo Room) which is believed to have been used to host war council meetings at the height of the Napoleonic wars.  The Waterloo Room is perfect for parties, seminars, meetings and smaller wedding receptions. Its history and elegance make it perfect for any occasion..

Royal harbour surrounded by Georgian elegance

Ramsgate is a seaside town on the Isle of Thanet in East Kent. It has the only Royal Harbour in the country and is full of beautiful buildings, quirky shops and has a stunning Blue Flag beach. The Falstaff is located in Addington Street, within the West Cliff conservation area, and a short distance from the Royal Harbour.

Addington Street was originally the high street for the West Cliff area of Ramsgate. With its historic buildings, cafés, and shops, it is generally considered to be the artists' quarter of Ramsgate and is home to the Addington Street Historical fair which takes place in September every year.
