Freshly renovated by interior design dream team Harding & Read, with architecture from Mad Atelier and styling by Michelle Kelly, The Rose in Deal has had a glorious new lease of life. Owned by Alex Bagner - formerly Editor of the prestigious design resource Wallpaper.com - each of its eight bedrooms has its own distinct personality, bursting with colour and dressed with mid-century treasures, prints of contemporary artwork by the likes of Tracey Emin and Gary Hume and textiles from Liberty. Even the bathrooms are a joy, with reclaimed suites in pastel hues and divine toiletries from Austin Austin. Add in a welcoming bar and a foodie offering from executive chef Rachel O’Sullivan - formerly of London’s Polpo, Spuntino and The Towpath Cafe - celebrating the best of Kentish produce and this is surely the perfect seaside retreat. Whether you stay the night, feast in the restaurant or just pop in for a coffee after a stroll along the beach, you won't be disappointed.
