The Cave has opened as Kent’s newest hotel, forming part of a £12m wider development on the outskirts of Canterbury.
Boughton Golf Club has been rebranded as The Cave Hotel and Golf Resort, in a project spearheaded by its owners James Tory and Johnathan Callister.
The property comprises 41 bedrooms and Firepit restaurant, headed up by chef John Bingley.
Rooms start at £125 a night.
The design of the new hotel has been ‘inspired by the world’s best’ properties, as the duo bid to bring ‘affordable luxury’ to the country.
The Cave includes a stand-out 3,000 sq ft penthouse, with its own chef, butler and cinema screen.
Speaking to Kent Live, chief executive Callister said: “My chairman James and I have been lucky enough to stay at some of the best hotels around the world and have taken our inspiration from those.
“At The Cave we have tried to put all the things we love into our brand, and all the things that frustrate us, we’ve taken out.”
“We have created an affordable luxury hotel with a five-star feel without the rules that traditional hotels have,” Callister adds.
