Hotel History

Marsham Court Hotel

The Marsham Court Hotel opened in 1913, occupying one of two neighbouring houses on the East Cliff

A Mr and Mrs Marsh – who had a ham curing business – originally owned the building and supposedly put together the words Marsh and ham.

By 1923, demand for the hotel’s 13 rooms had become so great that the neighbouring house was bought and linked to provide 41 rooms.

Rosie Radwell’s mother, Jennie Deavin bought the hotel in 1987 when it was in need of refurbishment.

Meet the Team


The Marsham Court Hotel has been owned and operated by the same family for the past 30 years!

The staff are the back bone of the business and we invest in their training and encourage continued professional development at all levels. Many of our guests return year after year and look forward to seeing the family and staff who in lots of cases have become like old friends.
Here are just a few of the faces that you will see when you visit.
