Stayed here for 2 nights while at the open golf championship.
Hotel is old and rundown. Lift was broken so had to lug bags up narrow stairs. No staff to assist.
Under 90's stay way. You go here to 'wait for God'. Think
Faulty Towers and your about on the money.
If you need to watch TV - for say the open championship - you can use the TV room which holds "3 people" - Not an exaggeration. The TV would have been 15 years old.
The rooms are old and tired.
We booked dinner for 8 people at the restaurant. When dinner arrived we where advised the kitchen had run out of vegetables and so we had to share 4 servings between 8 of us.

Room Tip: there are none

I have given this Hotel a Very Good rating based on
The Bedroom was very clean., towels were changed every day if required and were provided with luxury Bath/Shower gel.,but make sure that you do not get a Bedroom in the front it is so noisy impossible to sleep and the windows rattled. And The Quality of the meals excellent
The down side the Headwaiter had an awful attitude towards us although we were mainly senior citizens it was obvious that he did not want bus tours staying there. He made us feel like 2nd class guest or as if we were in a very badly run retirement home. He even implied that we were not really guest. Would like to express our thanks to the 3 young male waiters and the lady for without them serving our 4 day break would have been spoilt.

Room Tip: Do not book the front bedrooms very noisy.

I was very late to arrive at the Best Western Clifton, around Midnight without booking in advance so wasn't hugely hopeful in all honesty.

The manager on the door was extremely helpful and welcoming which was hugely appreciated. I was quoted £50.00 for a single room with a (great quality) sea view without breakfast which wasn't bad at all for a Saturday last minute thing.

The room was quite spacious, clean and was situated right on the sea front on the Leas which made for an excellent quality sea view. The Hotel has all the usual Best Western trappings but the building itself, which has some age to it, has clearly retained a lot of the original features which made it feel quite authentic and not part of a chain.

I would recommend staying in this hotel if you are passing through but Folkestone itself has fallen further than any town or resort I know. Ten years ago, their used to be a Ferry Resort to Boulogne, A thriving Fun Fair on the seafront, Amusement Arcades and the well-known Folkestone Market. All are gone, scrapped, torn down, to leave a barren, threatening seafront and harbour area full of grafitti and late-night bars who seem to care little about who they let in - locals only it seems as they have killed off the tourst industry in its entireity. The town is also pointless - shops you would find just about anywhere else.

Overall, a nice, welcoming hotel but in an area which is pointless to stay in - the Kent Coast has many other, significantly better options.

We loved this hotel - it's very quirky and extremely clean. When you arrive it has a warm welcome - not too ostentatious. The staff are extremely professional and will go that extra mile for you. I am coeliac and can't eat gluten. This was not a problem at all. Everything was prepared with my dietary requirements in mind.
