Where do I begin - The staff could not do enough for us, the food was fantastic with equally fantastic service, the room had a wonderful view and was laid out brilliantly. We thoroughly enjoyed, if not loved our romantic stay in this characterful building. The hotel is situated in the prettiest part of Folkestone, with lovely walks along the... More

They were met by the night porter who it would appear was not very pleased to see them. Having introduced themselves my son asked if... More

We stayed here for my mother's birthday. In our experience, everything was excellent: the room, the staff, the bar and the ambiance of the place. I have read some reviews commenting that the publics areas of the hotel look shabby; however, we felt it was quite the contrary and that the bar in particular was unique! Comments have been made...
