We stayed here for two nights during a very hot spell in July. The hotel is a very attractive period property, and is an excellent location by the sea. The reception staff were friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately this is where my complimentary comments finish. The hotel cannot cater for the heat - there is no A/C, and fans (old and... More

We like to visit different places for a long weekend and always look to stay in an hotel which is good value for money without being too basic. We were instantly welcomed to the hotel - friendly, attentive staff who checked us in quickly and efficiently which is always a good start. Really helpful about the local attractions and when...

Infact everywhere was really clean and tidy.The staff were very nice with a special mention for Ashley who was very helpful (even... More

We stayed on our wedding night 30th June. Room was lovely. However we were woken early by workmen in the room next door which had been converted to a workroom. Had to step over all their stuff to come down to breakfast. Breakfast pretty poor for the price. This is supposed to be a quality hotel and had much better... More

We stayed for a night before and after going on a Saga tour. We found that the staff were very helpful,particularly on reception. Our rooms were very good., especially the refurbished superior room we had on our return. The food in the hotel was excellent especially the dinner menu . We would certainly stay here again.

Stumbling upon this hotel on the web while staying in London was sheer luck! The room is spaceous for a family of four, each one his or her own bed. Clean and equipped, fantastic view and a charming garden. We desided to stay another night and delayed our journey west towards Brighton. Free wifi, receptionist ready for service 24/7, breakfast...

We stayed for one night, and the hotel was charming. We were very well looked after, and would definately stay there again. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely and spacious, and very clean.

Never realised Folkestone was such a lovely place! We only stayed briefly, but the Burlington was fantastic. Old fashioned and very comfortable. Laura, the receptionist could not have been more helpful, both with the booking and greeting us on arrival. Many thanks.

Really happy I choose this hotel, just outside Folkestone town centre (5min walk). Quiet location and rooms modern with big TV. 30 sec walk to great view of the sea . I paid £76 which I think was good value + offsite parking which is very useful in Folkestone . Choose the Burlington you want be disappointed.
