Cons: Nothing
7.0 Good
Pros: The location was convenient for what I needed. The staff were relaxed, friendly and helpful when we checked in. They swapped a room around for my elderly father to reduce the number of stairs he needed to traverse. The rooms were as advertised and suitable for our needs. Parking was inexpensive and convenient, being about 50m from the hotel and £5 all day.
Cons: The website mentioned a private car park; however, this was no longer available; however, the pay and display car park was very close and inexpensive. The only issue being the website mentions private car parking. As the venue is a family run Inn it isn't possible to arrive before the check-in as the building is shut, which was a bit inconvenient as I had a 4 hour drive and I arrived a little ahead of schedule and had nowhere else to go until I had checked-in. Not a complaint, just something to be mindful of when visiting this charming family-run inn.

Pros: Friendly and courteous staff. Extremely clean and comfortable bedroom and bathroom
Cons: There is no lift and our room was on 2nd floor. So difficult to carry cases up 2 flights when you have dodgy knees. We stayed on a Sunday night and there was no catering facilities after 6pm. Of course we arrived at 8, so had to make do with just crisps from the bar. Breakfast was plentiful but not very appetising - Sloppy scrambled eggs, overcooked bacon and a "scented" sausage.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location, kind and helpful staff, nice bathroom. The hotel offers the possibility to eat in and it works as a pub as well. It has a free indoor pool for guests as well!
Cons: The mattress was the only downside of our stay, it was way too soft and our backs suffered quite a lot during the night...
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The parking availability was good Nice atmosphere,sadly I couldn’t get an evening bar snack due to staff shortage!

In general I do not hesitate to book again in Holiday Inn for such a cheap price.
Cons: The only negative thing I can mention is that the room and bathroom are too small for two adults and two children of 12 and 13 years old, However they are adequate for someone who stays for one or two nights. We stayed four nights.

Pros: Good location, though it wasn't clear that this was in another building nearby, meaning crossing the quayside for breakfast and no room service. Good views over harbour from some bedrooms. The staff did their best to be helpful.
Cons: The tiled floor in the bathroom was broken and moved under your feet, incorrectly laid for a wetroom too. No choice of teas in the room, no bin for teabags, virtually no facilities at all. Only one chair in a double room. Very basic indeed for £150 a night considering you have to pay your own parking costs too.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: View was good
Cons: Bedroom grubby. Bedding clean. But it all seemed as if it needed a really good clean. It was basic which is fine as long as it’s spotless but it wasn’t. The bathroom was an absolute disgrace. Smelt of urine. Tiles cracked and sinking into floor boards around toilet. Grouting around toilet was yellow. Shower was useless. Sink looked dirty. .

6.2 Good
Pros: The greeting we got on arrival, warm and friendly. The landlady ironing my shirt The comfort of the beds The warmth inside our room
Cons: I'm sorry to say that breakfast is only available for 1 hr between 8.30 and 9.30am. You should have at least a 2 hr window for this. The checkout time being 10am. I think checkout should be between 11.00 and 11.30am The wash sink inside the room and not in en suite. The lack of space within the room, not a major problem but something to address, especially when both of us are tall and need a little more room. Also the position of the dressing mirror inside the room, under the TV. We could only see ourselves from the waist down and had to kneel to see our top halfs. But having said all that, I would stay there again based on the friendly and warm greeting we got on arrival

6.0 Good
Pros: Friendly and courteous staff. Extremely clean and comfortable bedroom and bathroom
Cons: There is no lift and our room was on 2nd floor. So difficult to carry cases up 2 flights when you have dodgy knees. We stayed on a Sunday night and there was no catering facilities after 6pm. Of course we arrived at 8, so had to make do with just crisps from the bar. Breakfast was plentiful but not very appetising - Sloppy scrambled eggs, overcooked bacon and a "scented" sausage.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location, kind and helpful staff, nice bathroom. The hotel offers the possibility to eat in and it works as a pub as well. It has a free indoor pool for guests as well!
Cons: The mattress was the only downside of our stay, it was way too soft and our backs suffered quite a lot during the night...
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The parking availability was good Nice atmosphere,sadly I couldn’t get an evening bar snack due to staff shortage!

Pros: We had a great stay at the Relish. The room was great & the bed was comfortable. We found the staff were friendly, their top class hospitality was unbelievable. Their was hot drinks and a selection of delicious cakes available for the residents to help themselves too. You never get this anywhere 247. We would recommend to stay at the Relish as the location was great near the seafront. Shame the weather let us down, with storm Dennis. Next time will like to visit in the summer time, to enjoy the attractions there.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The room do require updating but I believe that there are arrangements to start the renovations soon. The rest of the hotel is extremely well decorated with designer fabrics and walls. The hotel is one of Folkestone's oldest and all refurbs needs to be in keeping with the buildings age. The staff are very polite, efficient and friendly. The underground car park is the best place to keep your car. It closes at 9pm and opens by 7am. If you park after 6pm you can park for free until 8am. Its only £4.00 for all day parking.
Cons: Didn't find anything to dislike.
7.0 Good
Pros: Great location on the front with sea view. Very walkable; to the shops harbourside etc. Is being refitted it will be much better. The dining areas are now fully refitted. Will be very good once the work is done. No disturbance for me quiet and peaceful.
Cons: Old carpet and fixtures rooms need updating.
7.5 Good
Pros: Property in a nice location. Most of the staff were friendly. A nice bar
Cons: Paid for an upgrade, supposedly in an Executive room. Quite disappointing and I dread to think what a standard room is like. I have stayed in better rooms in a lower graded hotel. Needs some TLC and re decoration. Shower not very good and radiator wasn’t working on arrival. After reporting to reception, we were given a heater in the room.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Location, restaurant, room was great. Price was even better.
Cons: New shower head would be nice and water wasn't very hot. Bed was great. Very nice restaurant. Breakfast was good. Really nice hotel to stay. Really nice room. Thank you
7.0 Good
Pros: Overall a nice stay, friendly staff and sizeable rooms at an excellent location.
Cons: The bathrooms urgently need updating.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I loved the location, and the Seaview although very stormy on our stay.
Cons: We did arrive during a storm so did expect this, the room was a bit cold due to wind blowing in, the heater was on full but made no difference. Due to weather I do understand this.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location, very clean
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Friendly efficient staff. Comfy beds. Lovely location
Cons: Overcharged for room service breakfast. I'm a late stage kidney patient on a restricted diet so ordered only things I could eat from a la carte menu - bread and spread with a pot of tea one day and eggs on toast another. When I queried 18.50 Restaurant Breakfast on bill was told it 'couldn't be itemised'. Why have individual prices on the menu then? Watch out if you're on a budget

1.0 Poor
Pros: The facilities down stairs were good the lounge, restaurant were clean and in good order.
Cons: The room was tired and tatty. The window leaked and rainwater poured through making the bed wet. The mattress and carpet was stained. The lift was broken and there was mould in the bathroom. The door wasn’t secure as it had been forced open.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Value for money Friendly staff The reasonable priced bar. Great location and a free carpark.
Cons: Sea view... ??? the window was one half of a large sash window...the room had been divided into 2 directly through the middle... so we in our room could enjoy the view one at a time... lol New Pillows PLEASE...putting 2 old ones in one pillowcase wasnt very comfortable
7.0 Good
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Poor and meagre cooked breakfast
7.1 Good
Pros: Right on the seafront and staff were friendly and helpful.
Cons: Rooms are tired and need modernising but you get what you pay for I guess. If you want Premier Inn quality be prepared to pay twice the price.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The room was well lit and the bed was comfortable. All in all the stay was OK. Just what to expect from a 2 star place.
Cons: Seaview from room number 301 is not the best. You get one small window facing the sea front and another larger window facing the building opposite can see the sea but was not expecting that layout. Was a little disappointing. Stains on bed sheets. No teaspoons provided, when asked the staff was given 1 which was dirty. Shower for this particular room has 2 settings boiling hot or freezing cold. Arrived 15 mins early and the staff did not check if our particular room was ready just said no to check in.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Price wasn't to much but in February I am sure we could find something better
Cons: When we came to the hotel a bit early around 45 min they served tea or coffee for us it wasn't free but that's fine we paid 3 Ł in cash for this tea and when next day we came back home they charged us again from our account for the same tea which was paid once already. English breakfast was cold and wasn't complete also VERY IMPPRTANT the window glasses were broken in room 113 it was windy night and I have been worried about safety because we been with our children and on the web page there was something about music so you can seat and spend some nice time but there was just radio on TV there been staff on the reception 2 persons but on the bar wasn't anyone
