Thank you so much for a wonderful stay last week. The hotel is welcoming, with a comfy bar and restaurant. Food is excellent, and the bedrooms are clean and well decorated. I would not hesitate to recommend your hotel to other visitors to Sandgate, Folkestone or the surrounding towns on the Kent coast. Mr Michael Clifford Visiting from Murcia, Spain

We have just had the distinct privilege of staying at The Royal Norfolk Hotel for the first time. The staff were very friendly, engaging and helpful. Our room was a delight (with views over the castle and beach) and the food exceptional. Overall, we could not have wished for a more relaxing family stay by the sea!

Thanks so much to Sandra & Georgia for a wonderful stay. My wife and I had a fantastic break at the Royal Norfolk to celebrate our anniversary. Then hotel is spotlessly clean and the service can not be faulted - the staff attitude is fantastic - they are so helpful. First class all round!

Stayed here in a superior double (41) recently. Having read reviews here, I knew to ask at the bar, otherwise I agree checking in might have been confusing! The room was large and simply/ elegantly styled with a good bathroom, shower and toiletries. Bed linen and towels of good quality, hairdryer and some toiletries provided, standard hospitality tray which would... More

Inside there was a bar a barman and a big dog sitting on the floor. I went in thinking that I may get help but the dog... More
