We have just come back after a four night stay with a coach holiday.
We read the reviews and wondered what we were going to arrive to at the Grand Burstin .In all honesty we would say just try it for yourselves before making a judgement.
Yes the hotel is very very dated and needs a complete refurb but to us we didn't expect any different really.Our room on the second floor was large and comfortable but really gloomy.There was mildew around the bath and stains on ceiling and a shower unit that was unusable.However we honestly believe that all this was down old age and not poor cleaning.The bedding was perfectly clean as were the towels and we had a good nights sleep each night apart from the fire alarm going off one night.It was a false alarm.We would stay here again if we are down in Folkestone but would possibly up grade to a better room if we could.I am sure that staff would do their best to put things right if they can but they do need to be told if there is a problem otherwise they cant do anything to put it right.
The entertainment each night was good and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Us oldies know how to do that and even managed to win a couple of games of bingo.
The food was good aswell with plenty of it.No it wasn't top class resteraunt quality which we didn't expect but to be fair we wouldn't complain about the choice of what we could have.
Don't come to the Grand Burstin if you think you are coming to a top class hotel.Just accept it for what it is and enjoy yourself.
