Stumbling upon this hotel on the web while staying in London was sheer luck! The room is spaceous for a family of four, each one his or her own bed. Clean and equipped, fantastic view and a charming garden. We desided to stay another night and delayed our journey west towards Brighton. Free wifi, receptionist ready for service 24/7, breakfast was best so far in a week and the proximity to the beach, the city centre and fairley good restaurants are valuable for us.

Be sure to see the artworks displayed along the promenade, making this little town really special for both adults and children alike. So too, the coastal activity park along the Lower Sandgate road.

Room Tip: Room 119 is perfect for a family of four (boys 11 and 13).

Dear Guests,
Thank you for spending the time to write a review. I am glad to hear that you and your family had a great stay with us and enjoyed Folkestone. There are many things to do and see around the town for all ages and tastes. Folkestone is a lovely destination and the Burlington location is ideal to discover the Leas, the coastal park & beach or the creative Quater. I hope to see you again in the future. Yours sincerely

We stayed for one night, and the hotel was charming. We were very well looked after, and would definately stay there again. Nothing was too much trouble.

The room was lovely and spacious, and very clean.

Never realised Folkestone was such a lovely place! We only stayed briefly, but the Burlington was fantastic. Old fashioned and very comfortable. Laura, the receptionist could not have been more helpful, both with the booking and greeting us on arrival. Many thanks.

Really happy I choose this hotel, just outside Folkestone town centre (5min walk). Quiet location and rooms modern with big TV. 30 sec walk to great view of the sea .

I paid £76 which I think was good value + offsite parking which is very useful in Folkestone . Choose the Burlington you want be disappointed.
