Comfy bed, good sized room with ensuite. Great views over the gardens. Centrally located and a very quiet location. Breakfast was lovely, the free drinks and cakes were a nice touch as well. Hotel staff attentive and helpful

This was a lovely, peaceful stay. All the hotel staff were exceptionally considerate at all points and made the stay lovely. I am dairy intolerant and they had soya milk, soya butter and soya yogurt available for me. The communal kitchen area where you could make tea, coffee and so on was absolutely great - firstly for the great tea...

We stayed at The Relish for 1 night while traveling around Kent. The hotel was very good - it's a very good standard for a B&B, it has everything you'll need during your stay! I wish we could stay a bit longer. Highly recommend.

I've never felt the need to write a review before but after staying last night I need to say what a friendly, lovely place. Gorgeous homemade cake, extremely pleasant staff and a lovely room and fab shower!

We stayed here for the weekend before Valentines in order to go for dinner at Rocksalt. We were very happy with the accommodation. We stayed in the Cliffe room which is on the top floor. Its a bit of a thigh burner to get to the top but the room was very large and very clean. I really liked the...

We stayed overnight enroute to France. Our room was up several flights and while clean and pleasant was extremely small. We are both very tall so if we stayed again would definitely try for a bigger room if there is one. The breakfast was ok. The bacon was nice although the sausage wasn't freshly cooked and the poached eggs over...

Second time staying at The Relish. Can't fault the place as far as location and value are concerned. Chimney room this time - a bit of "on the fly" cardio exercise to climb to the third floor but worth it. Lovely room, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is very good - a great start to the day. Only slight annoyance was...

A lovely bed and breakfast, staff are very friendly, not to expensive and it come highly recommended from The Rocksalt Restaurant that is based down by the harbour in Folkestone. You need to book early as this bed and breakfast does get booked up!

We made a last minute booking here, and stayed in Cliff room. Apart from the lug up to the third floor, the accommodation was faultless. We were given a tour around as soon as we arrived, and invited to help ourselves to hot drinks, soft drinks or wine plus a selection of cakes. The room was perfectly set up with...

Great service, close to the water and lovely comfortable and spotless room. The breakfast was delicious and the added extras of complimentary wine and cake kept both adults and children happy. Will come again .
