We viewed this hotel via trip advisor, the link took me to LateRooms.com were this was on offer at £37 per night down from £145 bargin!
On arrival to folkestone, which is a little run down in appearance, we checked into the hotel, parking is not free as stated on website but at £3.50 for 24 hours still cheaper than the car parks surrounding the hotel.
The evening's entertainment was that of phoenix nights but for the price im not moaning, it consisted of a duo that sang songs from the 50s 60s and 70s, then a few games of bingo, and followed by a swing group and not bad at all.
we retired to the room which overlooked a csrpark with a sea view, and our room was a family one, but as there was only myself and the wife.....lots of space, bathroom reasonable condition same as the room, which needed some decorating but was adequate for our needs and expectations for price paid......dont think it would be worth the £145 asked by the hotel online.
In the morning breakfast good all round, no complaints in that department.
One night stop over fine.......longer well its up to the individual.
And yes there were some builders but they are working on the hotel, not as some are saying stopping in the hotel.
