Fun Fact ~ Afternoon Tea was introduced in England by Anna, seventh Duchess of Bedford, in 1840.  At that time the evening meal was served fashionably late, around eight o’clock.  This late meal left the Duchess a little hungry around four o’clock.  The solution for the Duchess was a pot of tea and light snack taken privately in her boudoir during the afternoon.  Later friends were invited to join her in her rooms and this summer practice proved so popular that the Duchess continued it when she returned to London.   Other social hostess quickly picked up the practice and before long all fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling on sandwiches in the afternoon.

  6. Hi Dorothy Derfler,

    We are doing some early research for a 1 week stay in one of your suites during August 2015, probably 2nd or 3rd week. We have never stayed at or even been in your hotel. We are a clean non-smoking family of 4 with twin 5 year olds and we typically go to bed around 7:30 (kids). I have been reading a lot of reviews of noise from the amusement park and boardwalk at night, we were considering an ocean side room, and I wanted to get your thoughts on that? Would you recommend a street view room or perhaps a room on the opposite side of the amusement park instead? This will be our 1st family trip and I want to do my best to make it a hit for the kids and a great room is huge help. So basically to sum this up what rooms would you recommend (penthouse is out of our budget) for a family of 4 looking for a clean, quiet, spacious suite?

    Thank You for Your Time
    Brian Coates

    • Hello Brian,
      Thank you for your interest in the Flanders Hotel. We are an all suite, non smoking hotel located in family friendly Ocean City, NJ. Our one bedroom deluxe suite would accommodate your family. The room has a king size bed in the bedroom, queen size pull out sleeper and a chair sleeper in the living room. The room also has a kitchenette with a two burner stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and all the utensils.
      Regarding noise, if you have children that are lite sleepers or go to bed early I would suggest a room on the south side or to the back of the building. Some families enjoy the sights and sounds of the amusement park and others prefer it a bit quieter.
      We are accepting reservations for next summer. To book your room and put in your requests please call the hotel directly at 609-399-1000.
      Have a great day,
