Disappointed

First of all, I am not usually in the habit of writing reviews as we tend to just use hotels as a base and make the best of it. Hotel is very tired and room bordered on depressing. The faint smell of damp permeates throughout the corridors. The windows in our bedroom had 'blown'. The shower was little more than a dribble. You have to pay for parking at the hotel, something we had not seen advertised and the pool was out of order the entire time we were there. Luckily we were spending most of the days out of the hotel otherwise we would have probably cut our holiday short rather than stay there.

Didnt get what we booked for

We arrived at the hotel, took them 5 minutes to find our booking, then eventually were given our room keys. Got to the room and there were two twin beds instead of the double bed we booked for. Went back downstairs to reception only for them to tell us that there are no more rooms available with double beds but that they would send someone up to come and push our beds together and prepare it as a double bed. After waiting 2 hours eventually a lady came in with a double bed sheet. we asked her about a double bed Duvet and she said they had run out of them. This was on the weekend of my wife's 30th so by this time I was so disappointed. We eventually told her to leave it. They did bring us a bottle of wine later as an apology but no cork screw so we couldn't open it. The room was ok, just needs to be refurbished. Breakfast was basically canteen style self catering but most things on a breakfast menu was provided. They also charged us £3.50 per day for parking. There is nothing about this when we did the booking. All in all wouldn't recommend this hotel at all. Left a bad taste in my mouth.

Excellence for budget money!

We were welcomed at reception and had our room key within 2 minutes. Our room was smart, nicely furnished and had tea and coffee supplied. The buffet breakfast was more than adequate and altogether we enjoyed our one night stay.

Stopover

Very tired decoration; parking a real headache; mattress hard and lumpy; water scalding hot in basin and no mixer; internet connection poor to none; noise from club opposite until after 1am; bottles of alcohol hand gel inside main entrance and outside restaurant was a little disturbing; breakfast was good if you like full English; fire alarm going off at 00.30 did not help.

Unexpected bargain

Only stayed for a night en-route to France and wasn't expecting much for the low price paid however the room was comfortable and clean, an extra single bed provided for our daughter and the staff were helpful and polite despite being overloaded with several group travel coaches arriving at the same time as us. Heating was good and an electric heater also provided which wasn't needed. Breakfast was provided which was very good again considering the price. Only downside was a lack of ventilation in the bathroom. Although the place felt like it was from a bygone era, this gave it a certain charm, will stay again.

Value for money

Although a room was rather small, most of the staff members are friendly. Check-in and out were eventually somehow efficient despite I saw many English guests stayed at the hotel. Free wifi was available within my room. There were many hungry guests and breakfast gone very quickly! The hotel located near the town centre and I enjoyed walking alongside the sea. Taxi was waiting outside the hotel and cost about £5 to Folkestone Central train station.

Great short stay for very little pay

Rooms are incredibly small but very clean and quiet. Breakfast is quite varied but average quality. Parking was full so we had to park in the pay&display across the road. But you can't beat it for the price.
