The Southcliff, Folkestone, Kent sits on a prime hill top location & is a short walk from the town. The Southcliff provided us with friendly staff, a clean comfy bed, beautiful Victorian hotel exterior and sea views – not to mention a resident ghost! What we did not appreciate was the very limited breakfast quantity & choice and observing the staff not changing table clothes after each sitting (just brushing crumbs etc. to the floor!!). Also, the tired furniture in bedrooms & thin dividing walls (hearing peoples night time conversations in rooms nearby), the orange & black moulds in the shower area, un-finished & shoddy work in the bathroom, hearing people showering at three in the morning (perhaps due to the downpipe only partially being boxed in?) and the tired / dirty paint work, doors and walls etc in the public areas / hallways.
Its a shame to see so much potential left to ruin - perhaps the current proprietor should start by quality upgrades, one bedroom / bathroom at a time, charge slightly more for it to recover the cost then move on and do the same in another room etc?
