Not bad but no black pudding!

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Dec 2014
A standard yet always busy Premier Inn hotel a junction away from the channel tunnel. Stayed here for a month in the run up to Christmas while attending a course. The rooms are the standard Premier inn fare, 16ft x 12ft with a 6 x 6 cut out bathroom, the décor is beginning to look a little tired with the bathrooms and corridors in the annex in need of a little TLC. The rooms in the main block are fine and the large flats screen TV in every room is a bonus at this price point. The majority of guests staying were overnighters off to the continent, which may of explained why every morning everybody was briefed on breakfast protocols, great the first couple of mornings, but on day 12 the fact the same waiter didn't recognise my party was a bit disconcerting. The attached restaurant "Table Table" is good pub grub, a bit pricey for my liking but a good menu with plenty to commend. It was very busy during the run up to Christmas with guests not being guaranteed a table, although the staff would always do the best to help. The breakfast is a buffet style continental with the cooked option order only, again plenty on offer, but oh to have some black pudding. Within the car park is a burger king, luckily the fast food outlet closes at 9 o'clock, unfortunately the smell of the store keeps on giving, ok in the winter when you likely to keep the windows closed, but come summer when you'd like some fresh air! Overall I would happily stay here again, perhaps a month is too long especially one designed with the gravelled in mind.

We stayed during the very busy pre Christmas period and were impressed with the very friendly staff welcoming us. The rooms were clean and of a good overall standard. The car park in front of the hotel is very small but there is ample parking at the TableTable next door. We'll be coming back next year.

We have stayed at Folkstone before and always have very good service. The staff are very friendly and it is nice and quiet. The only negative I would say is that there is not much parking outside the hotel itself, though there is a big car park outside the pub/restaraunt next to the premier inn which guests can use.
