THE HOTEL WAS NICE AND WARM AND THE STAFF WERE FRIENDLY, THE FOOD WAS GOOD AND THE DRINKS WERE CHEAPER, THE HOTEL LOOKS A BIT DATED BUT EVERYTHING IS STILL IN WORKING ORDER BUT COULD DO WITH A LITTLE TLC.

The hotel is a pretty old building and so it can't compete in freshness and design with the rash of new "inns" which have sprung up. It has narrow corridors, a small lift, steps access to the reception area, and even an old "telephone" room for making private calls in the days before cellphones.
My room was basic but adequate. Single bed, old style bedside cabinet, strip light over the bed for reading, a wardrobe with hanging and shelf space, a small shelf with an old portable colour tv, a kettle, mug and box of tea bags, coffee, creamer and sugar packets, refillable at reception. There was a sink with a light and shaver point above it, a small armchair - wooden arms, and an ensuite cut into one wall, which was rather small and cramped, but the hot water was rapid and plentiful. A suitcase stand, spare blanket and pillow were provided. The windows were sash style UPV replacements, so no drafts and reasonably soundproof. The hotel looks just a little shabby in places, with chipped paintwork and scratched woodwork, obviously having seen a good deal of wear. My bedroom door had a one inch gap under it at one end - uneven floors in an old building I'd guess. The hotel is well situated on the Folkestone Lees - no heavy traffic, a green area in front and panoramic views across the English channel. I would happily go there again.
its a friendly hotel the staff was nice and friendly yes it is a old hotel but you can see there refurbishing throughout our room was lovely and clean the bedding was clean and the bed was comfortable however there need to put in more pillows (small moan)
we had a lovely sea view and the breakfast room was spotless and the breakfast lovely
fair accomadation and breakfast for the price we will definely be staying again when we visit family in future
Folkestone is a picturesque coastal town that makes the most of its seaside setting. With miles of promenades and the unique Lower Leas Coastal Park linking the harbour with the town centre, Folkestone comes alive in the summertime. Visitors can take a break from the beachside entertainment and venture to Port Lympne's nearby wildlife park which is home to elephants, primates, and big cats.
