Returned to the Clifton Hotel for our 11th stay in September of 2015 for 5 days. Frequently we ask for room 111. Large and lovely garden facing room with spacious bathroom with both a full bathtub and separate shower. Large bed and new flat screen television.
Staff welcome us as family upon arrival. Arrived late for lunch and had gorgeous club sandwiches sent to room with crisps. There is a porter who will bring your bags to your room for a few bob.
Weekend breakfast has moved to the lounge due to renovations and to be honest the location is far superior to the dinning room. Beautiful views over the Leas and Channel.
The hotel does a wonderful full English breakfast with eggs as you wish. Staff always kind and helpful.
The hotel pub is perfect for an evening drink before supper or on the home from supper. Be aware it is England and all pours are measured...ask for a double.
Staff always willing to help with your needs. We did a lot of trips and hikes and reception always arranged taxis.
It is an old hotel. For us it's part of the charm. Rooms are clean but furniture is old but in good nick. Cleaning staff are excellent and will work around your schedule as needed.
There are a lot of narrow stairs as is typical of England but there are two lifts in the hotel.
I highly recommend The Clifton as a hotel stay when in Folkestone. less
