          The Reception was quite nice and it was a good price. Ok for one night and a good example of you get what you pay for (£25 per night) !!

          The hotel is very tired and in desperate need of a face lift, the room was very basic, the ceiling was awful, the heated towel rail had bear wires hanging by the sink rather than a plug socket, there was no shower curtain and no room to park (we arrived at 7pm). Although, I saw a couple who did park in the hotel car park and had their car broken into.

          Cheepest hotel I ever booked in UK. Just 25 GBP for a double room including full english breakfast and free WIFI in the lobby and free parking at the hotel (limited number). Absolutely fullfilled my needs for a one night stopover just 5 miles from away from Eurotunnel entrance. Good location at Folkestone harbour and the beach. Doner and Minimarket right around the corner. For sure, the hotel needs to be refurbished, but my room was clean, and I had a very good bed and a very good sleep.

          The view from my window was beautiful.

          My stay at this hotel was fine just for one night but if I'd been staying longer I would have complained about several things. 1. Two of the channels on the TV were very poor quality, double vision/blurry/kept going off and on. 2. There were tears in the duvet cover and the bottom sheet. 3. The shower was terrible. Had mixer taps and was very difficult to get to the right temperature. Was either cold or so hot that it burned me. 4. Breakfast wasn't served until 7. I had to get to Rochester for work by 8 so I had leave before 7 and didn't therefore get a breakfast.

          The price

          2 foot wide footpath with a heavy hanging basket dead centre of the path at forehead height not easy to see in dark. I asked the chap on reception who's brainwave it was he was not concerned about their guests well being.

          We arrived after midnight but we were able to park in the hotel car park. The nightporter dealt efficiently with the check in and settled the account meaning that we could depart quickly in the morning. The room was a good size, comfortable bed and excellent buffet breakfast.

          The hotel was a little run down and needed work to get it back to its former glory.

          The food was good in the Victoria (Premier) Restaurant.The hotel had just been redecorated. The hotel was well sited for people who wished to go on day trips to the continent or for local viewing such as Dover Castle and other English Heritage sites in the area.

          After upgrading to the Victorian restaurant dining was fine.

          Bar closed monday 17/05/10. Our room was located within a smoking area (why) as non-smokers. The whole hotel should be non smoking. Lack of towels in shower room even after requesting further towels.

          We had a good weekend and enjoyed the entertainment

          We had a good weekend and the evening entertainment was enjoyable. We were all set for an early morning swim only to find on the weekends the pool did not open till 9.00am which did not fit in with our plans for the weekend. We did not go down for our evening meal until about 7.30pm-7.45pm and found that we had to wait on the three evenings for bread to be toped up( to have with the soup)which was on one evening luke warm, there was plenty of choice but yet again there did not seem to be any one checking what needed replenishing. Good location. T.V’s and rooms would benefit from being updated though

          afine hotel a bit run down in a sorry location good food but not always explained rated only fair

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          We liked the view of the harbour and the location in general - the bed was comfortable and we had a great nights sleep.

          Cold water in the shower/bath was virtually non-existant, so there was difficulty finding a suitable temperature (Room 619) and the full English breakfast could have had a bit more variety (as in some mushrooms perhaps) and the scrambled eggs were too pale and tasteless - there was an abundance of everything but it seemed mediocre in general - as in, "Oh, let's just serve this up and they'll eat it." without much thought going into the menu. As a owner of a catering concern myself, I believe in value for money without compromising quality, which I believed is the case here.

          The room was very spacious with a lot of room to move around and the bed was comfortable and my room had a shower as well and the self-service breakfast.

          Nothing at all, had a lovley stay there
