This hotel should be closed. As I travelled with a friend I had specifically asked for a twin room only to be allocated a double that also stank of smoke. After hauling our bags back down to reception we were told it shouldn't be "smoky" and reluctantly was given a new room. The room was adequate, fairly clean and water... More

My husband and I had the misfortune of staying at The Grand Burstin Hotel last weekend and wouldn`t go back even if it was free. We have previously stayed in Britannia hotels and know that they are not the best but thought we would give them one last chance to redeem themselves however this was a big mistake and we... More

we spend two nights in Folkestone, in this very comfortable hotel, placed directly overseeing the harbour. we arrived quite late, but we find the staff available to help us as much as they could. and again there is the possibility to opt for a "smoking" room! Britannia hotels chose to dedicate some of their rooms to the smokers, and this... More

We booked a 2night break for a friends birthday. All we wanted was a cheap and cheerful hotel. I was a little dubious after booking when I see the reviews, I wish I hadn't listened!! That's what we got Cheap and cheerful! Yes it needs a little decorating and updating but posh decor doesn't make a good hotel! The staff... More

Hotel very run down and needs lot of money spending on it. We had rusty fittings in bathroom, and a room phone that did not work, so could not contact reception without a trip down many floors. Also, a faulty light above main mirror (by one of few electric sockets) so room very dim. Worst food we have ever eaten.... More

Went for a 2 night stopover with 2 other couples on a B & B basis. Room were clean and spacious and had all the necessary extras. All a bit old and jaded but more than adequate. Breakfast was serve yourself and pretty good. There is entertainment every night but we chose to go to local pubs as we are... More
