I just love staying at this hotel. The staff are so friendly and the food is so good. The hotel is near enough to Folkestone just to walk in to the shops. I will certainly be staying at this hotel next time I am in Folkestone. No Premier Inn for me, (no soul)

This is the second time I have stayed here and can recommend. Rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable. All members of staff are always charming, polite and helpful. Food delicious, I invited three guests in for dinner and they thoroughly enjoyed their food.

Lovely hotel but totally inadequate heating in the room. Very draughty due to bedroom windows that would not close properly and a tiny and lukewarm radiator. I would recommend this hotel in the summer! Fantastic position, old world charm and sea views.

The breakfast... More

Lovely big room with sea view & pretty furnishings. Fresh crisp sheets & fluffy towels! Bathroom quite small but adequate with nice sized bath. Personnel really helpful & courteous - very friendly & obviously anxious to please. Several went 'above & beyond' to oblige & I was most appreciative. Pleasant relaxing bar area & large lounge with television. Food in... More
