The Hythe Imperial is less than ten minutes in the car from the neighbouring town of Folkestone and incredibly easy to find. You pretty much just drive west along the seafront:
Take the A259 Sandgate Road out of Folkestone for about two miles, past Saga’s Enbrook Park complex on your right and through Sandgate (the road will become Sandgate Hill, then Sandgate High Street, and Sandgate Esplanade).
Go all the way along Sandgate’s main street; you will then come to a very brief gap in the built-up area, between Sandgate and Seabrook. As you come into Seabrook you will see a BP garage on your left. Turn left here onto Princes Parade.
Continue along Princes Parade for about a mile. You will see the hotel on your right.
