Property information

Welcome to the Aqua Bay, one of the last remaining traditional guest houses on the Herne Bay seafront. Our lovely Victorian building is central to the charm of this wonderful beach resort that offers both fabulous views and personal customer service for the quintessential English seaside experience. We have two Seaview Family Rooms which give our guests a wonderful opportunity to watch some of the breath-taking sunrises and sunsets which Herne Bay offers. Please note these rooms are located on the 2nd & 3rd floors so not recommended for those unable to climb stairs or with health issues. Our standard rooms offer cosy, comfortable accommodation and are situated at the rear of the building. All rooms have free Wi-Fi, TV, tea/coffee making facilities and a hairdryer. An iron & ironing board are available for guest use on request. Please note we do not provide guaranteed parking, however there is paid parking directly outside the Aqua Bay operated by the local council which accepts card/cash payment. There are also any free spaces available within a very short walk of the guest house.
