Have stayed at the Clifton on nine occasions. The staff is wonderful and helpful always. As with all hotels there are budget rooms which are just that budget. But having said that, for just a slightly higher tariff one can have a spacious room with large windows and massive bathroom. I always prefer 111 or 112 for my stays. 112 can be expanded to a full suite with separate sitting room.
The Clifton is certainly dated, but for me it's delightful. I don't come to Folkestone for 'modern.' If you want that stay at the cold Holiday Inn or Premier Inn. For a taste of years gone by with loads of character I prefer the Clifton. The hotel pub is charming and the lounge is the perfect place for afternoon tea and sandwiches.
The restaurant is clean and the breakfast excellent. I have done the buffet and ordered off the menu and prefer the breakfast menu.
The rooms have new flat screen lcd televisions with more channels and the staff will deliver room service quite efficiently. I love their sandwiches and chips.
I cannot speak of the parking situ as I always use a car service from Folkestone Central.
