We stayed for two nights, and had a room on the 3rd floor. We were given a friendly welcome and all covid-19 precautions were in place, such as hand sanitisers, one way systems where possible an screens. The Hotel layout makes it a bit of a warren, with various stairs and corridors, that don't actually get you to where you want to go, so follow the initial directions to your room. There are lifts but the one serving our part of the hotel was very small. There was a sign saying one person at a time, although 2 would fit so I don't know if this was a Covid precaution. The room itself was large, clean and comfortable. In addition to the usual tea and coffee facilities there was also an ironing board and iron, a fan and a hair dryer.
There are no dedicated parking facilities for this hotel, parking is on street and you need to buy a permit at reception. As you would expect there is a restaurant onsite and also a bar, both seem part and parcel of the hotel but are also franchises so the restaurant is a Marco Pierre White Steak Grill, and the Bar is called Ocean Bleu. Food and drink is of excellent quality and varied from reasonably priced upwards.
The Hotel is located just on the edge of the main commercial are of Folkestone. It is about a ten minute walk to the town centre. The Leas Cliff Hall is just opposite and you can walk down a zig zag pathway to the Leas Cliff park and seafront. less
