The Marquis at Alkham, the three-AA-rosette with rooms near Dover, Kent, is to join the BeInns, a sub-brand of Bespoke Hotels.
Transformed from the former village pub in 2008, the business now has 10 bedrooms in the main 200-year-old building and three further rooms in two cottages. Head chef Charles Lakin, who has competed in two series of the BBC TV programme Great British Menu, serves a locally-inspired menu.
BeInns, represents boutique hotels and inns, and is one of seven sub-brands operated by Bespoke Hotels. It undertakes a marketing role for the Marquis.
Robin Shepherd, chairman of Bespoke Hotels, said: "We are delighted to welcome the Marquis of Alkham to the BeInns family. This exceptional property combines seasonal, modern cuisine amidst stylish, chic surroundings in an area of outstanding natural beauty."
The Marquis will continue to be privately owned by Tony Marsden.
