How do I start ? I have been coming to Folkestone since 1977 and know the area well...my family settled there. I was visiting them on Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd October. On our journey from Doncaster we had a puncture so I informed the hotel that we would be late arriving. We arrived at 11.00pm. I am diabetic. I...

Very nice view, helpful staff, good food! But the hotel is very old, dirty! We had the rooms above, the windows were not possible to open! The bathroom was not clean, found hair from the last guest! On the day we left, we have been early- we got no breakfast and no lunch package-because nobody told us, that we could...

We stayed for one night at the Sandgate Hotel which was a big mistake. The room was awful. No remote for the tiny television, no walk in shower, no glass in the bathroom, no hairdryer, no saucers for the teacups and only one sachet of coffee and 2 teabags. The double bed was small and creaked, the mattress was hard...

What a dreadful dreadful place and an embarrassing example of what we are offering for holiday makers from here in this country and from over seas. The room was dirty, the mattress was very badly torn, sheets unironed, ceiling stained all over, walls dirty in desperate need of decorating, furniture was broken and quite frankly only fit for a bonfire,...

We enjoyed our evening at the Sandgate Hotel. We had a lovely view of the sea from our table. It was raining and it still looked special. We could also the red sunset if we turned our heads to the left. The dinner was very tasty and filling. However we could not eat a starter or a pudding. Only thing...

The staff was nice and helpful but our bedroom was very dated and the bed was uncomfortable. It was dusty and quite dirty. The tables in the restaurant where sticky and everything was really dated as well. The food was good and the breakfast was delicious. For only one night it was okay but wouldn't go there for more than...

I stayed here for 2 nights and after booking I decided to read reviews which kind of worried me a bit as some were not very good at all. I had the best 2 nights by far. I had a sea view room with balcony and it is defiantly worth spending that bit more for those rooms. The staff were...

With extended family in the area, we visit this location often. This was the second time we have stayed at this hotel, this time we booked a balcony room which was definitely worth the extra money. The rooms are much better decorated, and the stunning view on a sunny day compares with South of France ! Real pleasure to wake...
