We recently stayed overnight before travelling to France on Le Shuttle. As we were travelling with our small dog we were only interested in hotels reporting to be"dog friendly". Last year we stayed in another Folkestone hotel ( The Burlington) they provided a dog bed and a bowl in the room, dogs were allowed everywhere except for the main dining... More

The hotel is well located in the town of Folkestone and offers parking (£1 a day) with food available throughout the day in good sized rooms. The rooms are basic but offer everything you need and are cleaned to a good standard daily. They do get very hot however and the fans that are available don't do enough to cool... More

The staff are very pleasant but the hotel itself is very tired and dated. Our room was very small and the shower was blocked - although staff assured us they would look at it when we informed them on checkout. My overall impression was that it was fine if you just need somewhere to bed down for the night, but... More

Good bits are that we got to take our bikes into our rooms rather than leave them on the car roof with a promise not to scratch the wallpaper. the location is good for our day trip cycling in an event in Calais and the rooms were clean if old fashioned. There is no dedicated parking and the parking you... More

We loved the location and the view of the coastline. The hotel had a charming atmosphere. The breakfast was really good and the family enjoyed staying there. The staff was helpful and we enjoyed our stay.

I have stayed at the Best Western Clifton Hotel, on many occasions as I spend quite a lot of time in the Folkestone and Dover area. the hotel is an old Victorian hotel, and could do with some TLC, but the rooms are large and clean, with en-suites, TV's an tea and coffee facilities, they are always clean and comfortable....

I believe the Clifton has been there since 1920, so the windows, stairs etc. are what you can expect in an old building. But they are clean, well maintained and the "smell of England" is missing. [Moist, damp, mould, wet concrete, old cigarettes...] You will hear the other guests milling around, but most likely not what they are talking about.... More
