          • Single
            7.4

            The stay in the hotel was plesant and i definitly will book the hotel again when i come to folkestone.

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            Good location, but (free) public parkingspace

            Continental breakfast was a joke, personal talked often Russian (??) to eachother. Not a warm welkom feeling.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Good location, friendly staff.Hot water boiler had broken just before our arrival. We were clearly informed (and apologetically) before checking in and were offered a 50% discount which we appreciated

            Double bed a bit too soft for my liking

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            It was convenient for the purpose we needed it for.

            There was nothing I didn't like. It was perfectly adequate for what we required for the evening.

          • Couple
            5.4

            Hotel internet did not work. This makes planning day trips very difficult. Also, the room information guide stated that there is "Free" bottled water upon request at the front desk. This is not the case. We were charged for a bottle of water we requested per the information guide.

          • Single
            5.8

            Was unable to check in firstnight so had to find another hitel - night porter did not answer door or phone espite warning them I would arrive late Shower on 4th (top) floor had no pressure in hot water

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Location to the beach was very good

            Very old fashioned...needs to be refurbished. Based on other hotels of the monetary value, this hotel is way over priced. The room decor was very poor. For £70.00 per night a little luxury would have be welcomed.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            Nice location

            Bed to small and uncomfortable, bathroom needs to be given a proper clean

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Convenient position for my requirements. Of the good standard that I have come to expect from Best Western having used them over very many years.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            We were lucky enough to have a room facing the sea and looking out over the Leas. The building was obvioulsy built as private home in the early 20th century with corridors winding all over the place, but I grew up in Folkestone and the whole 1960's feel of the place was wonderfully nostalgic. The staff were super. We had babies in our family group and had no difficilty in getting milk heated up at odd times of day or night.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Pleasant ambiance and good welcome from the staff. Lovely location. We use the hotel when we are starting early for France the next day and start the holiday with a walk along the sea front and a good meal in the hotel restaurant

          • Couple
            6.2

            the fact that we were allowed to bring our dogs with us, and it was close to the beach.

            the location - opposite a bar which kept us awake until early hours of the morning.

          • Single
            7.4

            It was conveniant and close to work, good and friendly staff. Comfortable hotel room and was a good atmoshpere. Easy to relax and unwind.

            Only to be picky but the design on the bed sheets and the very floral design can be over powering.

          • Single
            8.8

            Quiet bedroom, very good staff, location, nice and walm.

            A bit dated. no bar opened when I booked in, as I had been working all day and would have liked a drink.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Everything about this hotel was excellent. We wanted a relaxing stay doing a bit of touring. Used the bus services -excellent. Just what we wanted.
