Stayed at this hotel for one night on route to Belgium. Yes it's a bit rough around the edges but it's clean and tidy. The staff are great and it's close enough to the town. Where can you get a room with a sea view and breakfast for £30.00. I will use this hotel again

Clean, comfortable enough bed, good shower. They were happy to give us a different room when the heating could not be turned off - it was way too hot for us. The new room did not have the heater on, it was also roomier. The hotel is old but has charm. The lift is small - 2 people & luggage.... More

This is your 2 star hotel where nothing matches (curtains, bedding, furniture styles and colours) but the bed was very comfortable, the room was quiet and everything in it worked as it should. There were plenty of towels/tea/coffee etc, the remote worked and the mis-matched bathroom fittings and strange 'loo-round-the-corner' were endearing. Staff were delightful and welcoming (reception and breakfast... More

Stayed here for a night as we were catching early train on channel tunnel next morning. Good location. Rooms really dated and in need of clean and decoration. Not much else to recommend it to be honest. Wouldn't want to spend a great deal of time there. If you are staying a night there, there are lots of restaurants and... More

We stayed here and for the price it was very good. Initially we were in a room that had the heating stuck on high and the guy at the desk could not change it. They changed our room into what was a much better room. The initial room had a poor layout and if you wanted to watch the news... More

The Southcliff was an excellent choice for what we wanted to do, that is, have a three night break by the sea. The staff were all helpful, welcoming and friendly. We opted to upgrade to a sea-view and balcony, which was well worth doing. Although it is a B&B hotel, dinner can sometimes be had when there is a coach... More

Stayed at this budget hotel for one evening. The hotel is a little dated and the décor faded, but nonetheless it was clean and comfortable with attentive and efficient staff. The breakfast was exceptionally good and made easy with an uncomplicated menu. Location wise, the hotel is away from the town so quieter than some of the hotels in the... More

Hotel is a bit dated, but the stay was very comfortable. Rested in the residents lounge, enjoyed a great breakfast and then a short 3 min walk into Folkstone. What could be better? Room was large with good view overlooking the town.
