It is taking a risk expecting to find quality accommodation on a spring bank holiday weekend at the coast without booking, and is not something I would normally either consider or advise, but, at the last minute we decided to take some friends across the Channel to visit the battlefields of Belgium and France. I decided to break our journey from the north of England with an overnight stay before the crossing and I’m so happy that I did.
We drove into Folkestone and just a stones throw from the seafront and within easy reach of the shops we stumbled across this newly refurbished bed and breakfast accommodation. Fortunately for us it had only opened that weekend and with rooms available and the appeal of a traditional pub on site we didn’t hesitate to book . As you would expect, in what appeared from the inside to be a brand new build everything looked spotless and the proprietors immediately made us more than welcome with a glass of wine in their comfortable reception area.
We were able to park almost in front of the entrance to the accommodation and with the shops and restaurants just minutes away we didn’t need to use the car again until we left the following morning. Our rooms were spacious and had been tastefully refurbished, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms immaculate. The dining area was perfectly adequate and the breakfast, in both quantity and quality was commendable – at least we could sleep it off as we crossed the Channel!
We were very lucky to have found such lovely accommodation and such welcoming staff and I’m sure it will not be last time we choose to stay at 10to12 in Folkestone.
