“Wonderful stay, would definitely recommend.”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Stayed for one night after seeing a band play at the Leas Cliff Pavilion. Had a lovely stay, the staff were wonderful. Our room was cosy and a little small but had everything we needed. Lovely decor and comfy bed. The breakfast was amazing, great choices and really tasty! (room was a little warm with everyone in but windows open worked fine).

Loved the little extras like 24hr tea and coffee, complimentary homemade cake and a beverage on arrival.

We would stay here again, it was great! Thanks!

Stayed at The Relish for a quick get away and wow totally loved it, from check in Saturday evening to check out on Sunday absolutely perfect. Both ladies on reception lovely and helpful. Great touches such as a FREE 24/7 coffee area , home made cake looked lovely shame there isn't a gluten free option. Also a complimentary bottle of beer or glass of wine. Our room was very cosy apart from the blind which was hanging off in one corner (never mind still done the job). Only let down for us is that a request to the manager was a bit wrong but apart from this would defiantly stay again.

A warm greeting was given to my husband and I upon arrival after a hired car ride from Heathrow. It was a good location to board our cruise ship the next day and within walking distance to restaurants and wonderful water views a few blocks away. Our problem was a few large and heavy pieces of luggage, Anton took care of this by taking them below for the night. Our next obstacle was getting to our room with multple stairs (lovely old Victorian house) and we were on the top floor! Never did we think to check out a lift, foolish on our part especially being seniors and a husband with a disablility. We decided once up and once down for the stay. Hannah was most understanding and helpful calling for a cab and recommending various restaurants in town. Our small dormered room was very clean and had everything needed for our overnight stay. Breakfast was delicious and abundant. Would love to visit again but would request a room on the second floor.

Room Tip: Check to see if B & B has a lift or any rooms are available for persons with disabilities re:cli...

I had a large attic room overlooking gardens to the rear of the building. The room was decorated in a contemporary style, spotlessly clean and very comfortable and was also quiet. A very nice touch was the offer of home-made cake on arrival and that guests are also able to help themselves to an alocoholic drink from the ground floor kitchenette. The sea is only a few steps away and the town centre with restaurants and other facilities was also close by. I would definitely stay here again if my work brought me back to Folkestone.

We stayed here overnight for a wedding at the Leas Cliff Hall. The staff were extremely welcoming and accommodating, they even allowed us early entry to our room so we could get ready for the wedding at the hotel.

The decor was contemporary and comfortable, and the whole place was decorated to a high standard and really clean. Our room was very comfortable and clean, with a very nice bathroom with bath and shower, including toiletries and pristine white towels.

Slept like a log and enjoyed a very nice breakfast which consisted of a wide choice of cereals, juices, toast and cheeses, as well as cooked-to-order hot food. I demolished a full english which was very nice.

Great location, close to the Leas. Rooms are very good and breakfast excellent. Recommend the homemade bread and the cake with a cup of tea on arrival. Nice touch is the fan in the bedroom. We had a room on the top floor and despite it being September it was quite warm. I suspect it may get very hot during the summer and if travelling then I would book one of the larger rooms on the first or second floor. Staff were excellent. Very helpful and better than most five star hotels.
