From celebrations and party nights to festive afternoon teas, lunches and live music events, there are so many ways to celebrate with us at the Hythe Imperial.

A premier venue here in Kent

The Hythe Imperial Hotel is a stunning 4-star hotel located on the Kent coast, overlooking the English Channel. With a fine dining restaurant, choice of function rooms and a grand ballroom, it’s the perfect place to celebrate Christmas 2023 or see in the New Year in style.

Our award-winning hotel offers a range of festive packages, including both Christmas party packages and New Year’s Eve party packages.

We’re also one of the top winter wedding venues in Kent, and host live music nights too.

Soon the halls will be decked and Christmas trees will be lit up and full of sparkle. We’re excited, and would love you to join us!

Christmas lunches at the Hythe Imperial

This festive season, join us for a celebratory lunch with all the trimmings. It’s the perfect pre-Christmas way to celebrate with your family, friends or colleagues. Or just to treat yourself, no other excuse needed!

The festive lunches are available every day throughout December.

Or for a real treat this year, join us for Christmas Day Lunch or Boxing Day Lunch.

All meals are expertly prepared by our team of chefs, using local meat, fish and vegetables. Delicious vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are also available. Just take your seat as each delicious course is served from our AA-rosette-winning kitchen.

The best part? No stress – and no washing up!

Christmas party packages

If you’re searching for somewhere to party the night away this festive season – look no further.

Choose from party nights in either our spacious Coast restaurant or in the grand Ballroom – with prices starting from £55 per person.

Enjoy a welcome drink when you arrive, then a delicious three-course meal, followed by a fabulous disco with all the big Christmas party tunes to get you in the festive spirit.

As a hotel, we also offer Christmas party packages with accommodation. This means you can enjoy a drink or two at your party, without worrying about getting a lift home or booking a taxi. Get in touch to find out about our special rates.

Our festive party nights are available on selected dates throughout December. Make sure you reserve your place soon – some dates have already sold out!

Live Christmas events and entertainment

On Thursday, December 7th the festive lunch is an extra special one, with entertainment from a top Michael Bublé tribute act.

‘Sway With Bublé’ includes a two-course lunch and the sultry vocals of Mikey JC, so you can dance the afternoon away.

But there is so much more to choose from! Join us for very special evening party nights throughout December – with more top tribute acts such as Lionel Richie, George Michael, Bob Marley, Elton John and Neil Diamond.

Whether you want to dress up or dress down, it’s sure to get you in the Christmas spirit.

Indulge in a festive afternoon tea

We know this is such a busy time of year. But even if you’re strapped for time, you could still squeeze in a festive afternoon tea!

It’s such a quintessentially British tradition, and we’ve given it a lovely Christmas twist for you to enjoy.

Served in our Windsor Tea Parlour, you can indulge with finger sandwiches, homemade scones and jam and other sweet treats. Plus, add a glass of bubbly to make it super special!

New Year’s parties and celebrations

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind…

Just like our popular Christmas party nights in Kent, we’ll also be seeing in the New Year 2024 in style with our very special New Year’s Eve party night too!

On December 31st, choose from two special evening options – a family event for everyone, or a black-tie gala for grown-ups only.

Our family New Year’s Eve party includes the dinner along with entertainment for everyone – a silent disco, magician and ‘doodler’ plus a classic disco.

Meanwhile, our over-18s New Year’s Eve gala evening features an exquisite five-course menu and a live band into the early hours. It’s the perfect excuse to dust off your gladrags and party with us!

Last but by no means least, we are also offering a New Year’s Day lunch. What better way to start 2024 as you mean to go on.
