We stayed for 6 nights in a room with en-suite toilet & shower. The room is warm, with a comfortable bed. Every day we returned to find it cleaned. Breakfast is well presented with a good choice of cereal, yogurt, assorted jams and/or cooked breakfast. Coffee is served in a French press. The cooked breakfast is tasty and not grease-laden...

We came to Folkestone to visit the Triennial. An arts festival aimed at reviving the fortunes of the seaside town. The arts festival aims to act as a catalyst for longer term improvements leading to empty buildings being refurbished and the town improved. Our B&B was also in a state of improvement. Our room had just been refurbished in a... More

Thank you for the kind review. We are mainly finished with all our improvememnt and the extension containing a new ensuite and extra bed space in our family room will be complete by the end of February. Any good B&B need to stay looking refreshed and well maintained without disturbing the guests. We are glad you enjoyed all that folkestone... More

We spent 2 very comfortable nights here while visiting family, who live only 10 minutes walk away, so ideal! Not only great location for us but also very friendly welcome, warm and spacious room (RM 1) which would be lovely in the summer with a door into the garden. Breakfast, too, was excellent and kept us going through the day.... More

We needed an overnight stay with our dogs (3) on our way to France and the owners were so welcoming and helpful. We ordered an evening meal which again was fantastic and good value. Also this hotel is so near the chunnel you could ask for it to be any closer! Thank you Sarah for everything...
