Stayed in room 208 at The View Hotel Folkestone and I can understand the hotel' name when you open the curtains in the morning. Arrived around 2pm the room was all ready for us and after putting the bags upstairs went to the very welcoming bar area. The staff were all very friendly & welcoming and were served very quickly....

A very last minute booking for 3 double rooms on a Saturday night, as the hotel we were booked into was dreadful! So pleased in the first instance that there was availability. However, rooms are expensive for Folkestone so the expectation was high. Parking is in the street, so is free if you can find somewhere to park, which is...

Signature room extremely nice I have observations not criticism s this hotel is in its infancy. Could supply better quality toiletries. A selection of teas not just breakfast tea ie decaf and fruit teas. It was a very windy night and although new units in the windows it would be uncomfortable without the quality drapes also the bathroom window rattled....

We were in room 106, which overlooks a quiet park. It was immaculately clean, very quiet and a good size. The bed was extremely comfortable and I had an excellent night's sleep. The hotel is being refurbished and our room smelled strongly of new carpets, which gave me a bad headache. However, don't let that put you off, because I...

We where seated and met by billy the head waiter who was very attentive. Two of the children are wheat and dairy free which did not phase them . When the drinks arrived for the children they even chopped the straws down to fit the small glasses . We all had the roast which was lovely. A lovely experience.

Called in for a drink on Saturday evening and the bar service was chaotic to say the least. Staff seemed more interested at shouting at each other rather than serving the customers. Bar area was full of unwashed glasses and other debris. Someone needs to get it organised.
