Just spent Bank Holiday Mondayat the 'Old Timers' classic car show on the Leas/Grand Hotel.
Several hundred wonderful classic & vintage cars at a beautiful location on the cliff top in front of the Grand Hotel. What a shame regarding the facilities and service from the hotel. One would think that on one of their most busiest days of the year (Bank Holiday in brilliant sunshine) they would know how to deliver a good service from their very well known hotel. Several hundred people attending throughout the day. Here are my gripes ... Upstairs foyer bar 1 person serving. Downstairs lounge bar 3 people serving (just). Outside burger bar, constant large queue, ran out of burgers twice while we were waiting, £14 for 2 awful burgers & 2 bottles of beer. One bite and bined. I just feel its an awful shame when this hotel should be a great advert for Folkestone and the lovely cars on show.
Just think how lucrative this day could have been with a few extra staff ..... (and more reasonable pices).
