Margate, July 1963: Beatles for Summer pt. 2

Beatles Book Monthly photographer Leslie Bryce captured The Beatles' swimming pool antics at their Margate hotel in July of 1963. The Beatles played six consecutive nights at the Winter Gardens, Fort Crescent, Margate, Kent--July 8th through the 13th. Notice a freezing Paul on the diving board and John wrapping his arms around himself to keep warm. (Click photos to enlarge.)

I think this hotel was actually in Birchington - the Beresford Hotel. Can anyone confirm? It was managed at the time by my uncle.
