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.

A cold wet & stormy night in Winter

A cold wet & stormy night in Winter isn't recommended to be in Folkestone, but the greeting & room was warm. Whilst a gale howled in the Channel the resident singer entertained the appreciative crowd. Although not my cup of tea, but that's not why I stayed here. The price & location was excellent, the room and food adequate, the staff friendly. All in all excellent value for money.
