A fine place to stay in Folkestone.

The BEST WESTERN Clifton Hotel in Folkestone is perched on the famous Leas, with views across the Channel to France.

You'll be just a stroll from the sands of the East Cliff Beach, and just minutes from the town centre and harbour.And as the hotel dates back to the 18th Century, you'll enjoy as much character as you do convenience!

Whether you want to shop til you drop, walk or run on the Leas, take in a theatre show or simply do nothing back at the hotel, we're certain you'll leave feeling perfectly refreshed. A nearby coastal park will keep the kids happy too.
