“Short break in Folkestone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2012

My husband and I stayed here overnight, as we had booked to go to a local restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The accommodation was as it was described, boutique. It was clean and modern with tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The breakfast was absolutely lovely, I just couldn't finish it! Would I stay here again ? Absolutely , but next time I would eat at the restaurant attached to the B&B as the food looked great. Definitely recommend.

Stay2a is a recent addition to the Folkestone hotel list, but it will put the others in the shade. Owners Paul, and his wife Penny made us feel as though we were old friends rather than first time guests. As you enter, the ambience of the place is striking. you cannot help but be drawn in by the aromas, the airyness, the decor, the background music. The 3 rooms are stunning. Each is differently "theme-decorated". Clean, comfortable, well-equipped, large, contemporary, elegant, stylish. There are not enough superlatives to do them justice. Each has an excellent en-suite, and these, like the rooms themselves, are sizeable.
There isn't much in the way of a view from the rooms, but you don't need one! You have enough to feast your eyes on in the rooms themselves.
There are the usual drinks making paraphernalia in the rooms but you don't need them either because coffee and tea are freely available on request in Paul's restaurant whenever you like, and there is also a basket of complimentary biscuits, cakes, nuts, and chocolates.
Ahhhhh. The restaurant! It is FABULOUS!! The staff are so helpful, friendly, offering a warm welcome when you arrive. The food is everything good food should be. Hot, fresh, extremely tasty, generous of portion, and (arguably) more importantly, outstanding value. Utterly faultless.
Paul himself, is charming and witty, eager to impart his knowledge of the local area if you need any suggestions. Both he and Penny are very much hands-on with the day-to-day operation, both kitchen and front of house, and if you elect to dine in the restaurant you must save room for one of Penny's puds! Soooooo delicious.
Kent is lovely, visit the county.Folkestone is a good base, visit the town. Stay2a has a website, visit the site. Stay2a is EPIC, go visit!

I am happy to announce we are the first lucky people to experience these fantastic 3amazingly well thought out boutique rooms..

we were told to try pauls new B&B by another hotel as they were full and by god am i happy they did!! FANTASTIC!!!!! These rooms are extremlely beautiful,stunning & romantic a great get away for a weekend.

If your wanting a hotel with a view this isnt it but trust me you dont need one as all the scenery is in these rooms. There all large in size and all have on suite we did choose the bigger room called (walk in the park) as the bath was the size of a pool:) The little extras you wouldnt expect topped the whole stay off..complimentary drinks,nuts,chocolates when u wanted perfect..

We decided to have a romantic meal at pauls restaurant how could we not!! What can i say!!! The food is fanatstic i couldnt fault one thing wrong or disappointed with any of my three courses :) The food was hot,quick and best of all good portions.


Paul and his wife penny could not of been more helpful,friendly & given towards use. There staff are fantastic and caring but most inporant easy to get on with. Great vaule for money worth ever penny!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING USE FEEL WELCOME.. WILL SEE YOU VERY SOON I PROMISE.
