Stayed with my son for one night while visiting family. It's a fairly old building, and so not all the fitments are modern, but it served the purpose for us. Beds were comfy, with clean crisp linen, plenty of towels and toiletries. Kettle and TV in room worked fine, and there is a lift, though only a small one.
Room wasn't huge, but we didn't use it for anything other than sleeping. Shower worked fine, and the breakfast in the morning was good, with a cooked-to-order option.
Handily placed for most of Central Folkestone, though parking can be a bit tricky, but staff will explain where you can and can't park and what time you have to be moved by.
We got a friendly and warm welcome and could use the parking place in front of the house.
The small shower and toilette which were located at the end of the floor were clean.
We stayed just a night to take the ferry next morning.

Comfortable room and adequate breakfast. Problem of coach drivers leaving early in morning and noisy in corridors. We did smell smoke on the landing outside our room, and reported this to reception. They were going to chase this up and they have a fining policy for anyone who smokes in the hotel. It is bait run down, but was clean. The lift is very small and slow.Car parking vouchers can be purchased for £2 from reception and displayed in car window.

Stay 1 night, Feb 2016.
The hotel's easy to find. It has some excellent local facilities close by.
Room was newly decorated, simple but comfy. Only 1 pillow each, tho'! There's no phone, double glazing, air conditioning or fridge. Room's been partitioned and windows painted shut. We had noise from other guests and road outside.
Breakfasts start at 7.30 so we missed out. Eurotunnel is a few minutes away. This was a great choice, and Expedia got very good price.
Arrived very late, having previously advised hotel and was in our bedroom within a couple of minutes of stepping into hotel. Needed more pillows which were quickly delivered by night staff. Continental breakfast more than adequate. All staff we met were courteous and helpful.
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.
