A newly refurbished hotel in a beach-front location in Kent is preparing to open its doors to the public.

The Best Western Dover Marina Hotel is in the centre of the regenerated waterfront in Dover, and has been restored to its 1830s Regency style.

It has created about 60 jobs, which have gone to local people.

"The hotel is the jewel in Dover's crown with breathtaking views across the beach and the harbour," general manager David Otteson said.
