Premier Inn Folkestone (Channel Tunnel) Hotel
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Folkestone
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 April 2014

I chose this hotel simply for the proximity to the Channel Tunnel which I was using early the next morning, but was surprised to find that it was one of the most welcoming and comfortable stays I have had in a hotel for some time.

The staff were very friendly and professional on arrival and the room large and comfortable. It was a shame that the extractor fans in the bathrooms made such a horrible noise that it was impossible to have a relaxing bath. I'm not sure if this is a policy in order to make sure guest remember to turn the lights off but it was the same in the rooms with other members of my party so not specific to my room.

The only other quibble was only 30 mins free wifi. It is surely a basic and virtually cost free service these days to provide free wifi in public places.

Overall a great stay and very convenient for the tunnel.

Great location for the channel tunnel.
Usual premiere inn standard.
On site restaurant was ok, long wait to have our order taken but there was a wedding on so may be that was the reason.
Easy parking on site.

We stayed at this hotel as it was close to Eurotunnel. It is clean and well presented and we will stay there again. The food at the adjoining restaurant was good and they had a good range of vegetarian food.

Stayed here overnight as we had a very early train crossing. Less than 10 minutes to the check in and the helpful reception staff even had a set of printed directions. Restaurant next door served good value food but good idea to reserve as it was very busy when we stayed. Rooms very hot but fans provided with no fuss...although didn't help much...not uncommon with hotels of this type. Couldn't ask for more and using again this summer!

Ideally situated for Chunnel. Could be better signposted from motorway exit. Friendly and efficient staff. Room was clean and tidy. Very good service in restaurant and freshly prepared cooked breakfast.

Stayed here with family before catching a train to France. Usual good quality Premier Inn room, friendly staff and decent food in the restaurant next door. Location just a couple of miles from the Tunnel makes this an obvious choice if you want to stop over en route to the continent.

An excellent hotel to stay at prior to and early morning shuttle to France. Very clean and quiet, good food in the restaurant on site and excellent parking facilities - We had a super nights sleep which set us up for our long journey the next day - we will stay here again.
