My wife and stayed here for one night last week. It is a lovely late Victorian stuccoed semi - looks like something you would expect to find in Bayswater, very grand. Just one block back from the famous Folkestone Leas cliff top promenade - all huge Victorian mansions and faded grandeur.The room was a large double on the top floor (NB no lift!) - very spacious with nice view over Augusta gardens at the rear. Good ensuite shower. Well furnished with a great kingsized double bed - good comfortable mattress. Clearly the place has been fairly recently refurbished - smart without being over the top. Good breakfast - the usual cold buffet starters and full English options. Reasonable value at £100 for the night. Pleasant staff. A very comfortable stay.

We were recommended The Relish by Rocksalt Restaurant as they had sold all of their rooms. We were slightly dubious as we are not used to staying in B&BS but I must say we were pleasantly suprised. We were firstly given a discount for a small room which was a bonus then once we arrived Aton (the Hotel manager) asked if we would prefer a large room at the same price? Of course we accepted. The room was on the top floor, large, clean and well equipped. We were told to help ourselves to the Wine, home made cake and hot drinks. RESULT! Breakfast was fanastic, Smoked Salmon and full english breakfasts - what more can you ask for? We are planning on coming back in the Summer, such a a wonderful, friendly place.

The booking on the phone was easy and welcoming, unlike the Rocksalt rooms who did have any dedicated staff for bookings, and I would have to wait until someone was available to ring me back. Amanda and her husband could not be more friendly and helpful during my stay. The building is beautiful and my room was large, confortable and pristine. The breakfast, which I dont usually have, was very accomodating and nice. Just a great niche in the dreary Folkestone.

We spent a lovely night here back in December. The weather was blowing a gale but the welcome was warm and the accommodation was cosy.

We had two rooms on the top floor and stayed as a family of four. Very convenient for visiting family and an exhibition nearby.

Lovely complementary snacks and drinks on arrival plus the ability to make drinks etc in our rooms. I would have loved a bath - but these two rooms had showers - which worked extremely well. Aside from some very late arrivals breaking our sleep after midnight, we had a peaceful night. It was easy to find and the staff had ensured we had a parking place nearby.

This is not a cheap B&B. But you do get a high quality hotel experience.

Room Tip: One side of the hotel faces onto the street, one side onto the park.

I booked The Relish on recommendation from Rocksalt Restaurant. The booking was made for my fiance´s 40th birthday. On making the booking, I asked for some champagne and rose petals in the room and although the team were not able to offer these, they went out of their way to give us fabulous alternatives. On arrival, the owner showed us around and personally took our bags up to our room. The hospitality was fantastic and the breakfast the next morning was wonderful. I would like to thank you for being so fantastic and we will be visiting again.

Room Tip: The Orchid room was absolutely beautiful - 4 poster bed and a lovely space to be in.
