“Very convenient location to channel tunnel”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

A typical Premier Inn with its usual high standards. Table Table restaurant was up to scratch. Staff were very polite and helpful.
The only minor gripe was a bed that was not quite as comfy as usual. But despite this, we will certainly use this hotel if we are travelling to France again

Fantastic stay in premier inn Folkestone. Only had the room for 3hrs as I was catching a very early train to France. But perfect. The gentleman on the desk was very welcoming and professional. (Date of stay 27/2/14) hotel only minutes from channel tunnel so perfect!

very good location for the tunnel. price was little bit on the high side but we did book it late. food served in the restaurant is average. The fan in the bathroom is really loud. I spoke to the receptionist when we checked out and was told that we should have disconnected it!

Convenient location, friendly and extremely polite staff-even provided a print out of the correct directions to the tunnel as aware that some sat navs gave wrong directions. Clean and practical room. Used the burger king next door which needs a revamp and tips from premier Inn on cleanliness and customer service.

If you are looking to get an early train over to the continent, I have to say that this is a perfect place to stay.
The staff here were very friendly, and welcoming. If was great to stay here.
The rooms were very nice, clean and beds very comfortable.
Pub attached was very nice also..
But this is a great place for a person on their own, or for a family.
Ill be back again...

Another nice stay at the Premier Inn Folkestone. The rooms are spacious and clean and the bed and pillows are very comfy. All the reception staff are very pleasant and helpful with knowledge of the area and even call taxis for you. However with all the money Premier take they could really do with investing in more restaurant staff, especially at breakfast time. On the Sunday there were quite a lot of people complaining. The cooked breakfast is very tasty but with little staff things were not being topped up in the breakfast buffet area. No plates or bowls for cereal, fruit compot bowl empty, on two days the semi skimmed milk had run out also the fresh orange juice empty. The only white bread were crusts so that's what I had to toast and butter on a serviette because there were no plates. Surely they know they are going to be busy when children are on school holidays. This was the only moan the rooms themselves are lovely. So come on premier take on a couple more staff.

Room Tip: Book a room in the main reception area if its raining you keep dry going for breakfast
