Margate gets into a vegan hotel (Photo: Helly.Jo/Beet Bar / Instagram)

As if Margate wasn't already trendy enough, the seaside town is now set to get its first vegan hotel.

A bookstore in Old Town is being transformed into a five-bed hotel complete with a roof terrace and a plant-based restaurant.

The man behind the plan, Paul Blayne, already owns Beet Bar – a popular vegan cafe in Margate – and runs two-room B&B Beet Beds.

His new hotel business turns Hooked on Books (which is located in a Grade II building) into a cruelty-free port that easily leads into the cafe.

While you can only enjoy the roof terrace if you are a guest at the hotel, Paul says the hotel's gardens will be open to the public.

He told Kent Online that he turned vegan after he opened his cafe so he could eat a healthier diet, and then it was a & # 39; no brainer & # 39; was to turn his little BnB vegan.

& # 39; We had opened two rooms and soon realized that if we put the vegan food in & # 39; & bar, it wouldn't be too much of an ordeal to make them vegan, & # 39; he said.

'Do away with fourth cushions and have all the vegan toiletries.

& # 39; It's great for vegans, but also doesn't kick people out. & # 39;

Work on the hotel is understandably underway thanks to the crisis in coronavirus, but Paul hopes the fire will be resumed again.

This crisis may change the way we do on & # 39; the long term vacation, with more of us not looking to share & # 39; exploring the UK instead of hopping overseas – so it's great to know that new and exciting hotels and inns in & # 39; t advantage even if we can't get to them right now.

Vegan travel is something that seems to grow in choice and popularity. Last year, Scotland's first fully vegan hotel opened – Saorsa 1875 opened its doors in Highland Perthshire, while earlier this year, Hilton Bankside created a cruelty-free, 100% plant-based hotel suite. And the first fully vegan hotel in Greece is set to open in Mykonos this summer … though it may take a while before any of us come out to visit.
