Will refill as many times as you want. Wifi very good. Bed large, very comfortable, pillows lovely, slept very well. Shower, water temperature good, excellent bath towels.
Cons: car park needs some attention, messy and not tarmaced. Room was a little on the small side, only a shower, no bath. Would be better with a fridge. TV a little small. Little noisy from guest above our room, because the hotel is an old Victorian type building with wooden floors. Shower, just big enough, power not so good. Have a restaurant on site, ate there one night, expensive for what you get. Food eatable but nothing special.

9,0 Excellent
Pros: Great value for money! Good room, clean and modern bathroom, nice area with safe carparking for free. Unfortunately the towel heater didn't work, so it was a little bit cold in the bathroom. The staff were brilliant about the problem and once they couldn't solve it, offered us an upgrade to a better, bigger (and warmer!!) room as compensation. The evening meal was really good - generous and delicious portions, and again, very good value for money. Once in this hotel, you really don't need to go out to eat. Breakfast is freshly prepared on order and again the staff were excellent in filling our slightly "different" wishes!
Cons: Nothing. Will definely stay here again.

Pros: I stayed for one night in a single room on the second floor.

WiFi also worked well. Very comfortable bed. Room was quiet - didn't hear any noise from outside. The landlady was very friendly and helpful. The stairs are quite steep which could be difficult for anybody with mobility issues or lots of luggage, but not a problem otherwise. Easy walking distance to Folkestone Central station. I didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that. Overall very satisfactory and I would happily recommend and stay again.
Cons: Nothing. Everything was very satisfactory.

Cons: Nothing
4,0 Okay
Pros: Good location, though it wasn't clear that this was in another building nearby, meaning crossing the quayside for breakfast and no room service. Good views over harbour from some bedrooms. The staff did their best to be helpful.
Cons: The tiled floor in the bathroom was broken and moved under your feet, incorrectly laid for a wetroom too. No choice of teas in the room, no bin for teabags, virtually no facilities at all. Only one chair in a double room. Very basic indeed for £150 a night considering you have to pay your own parking costs too.
3,0 Mediocre
Pros: View was good
Cons: Bedroom grubby. Bedding clean. But it all seemed as if it needed a really good clean. It was basic which is fine as long as it’s spotless but it wasn’t. The bathroom was an absolute disgrace. Smelt of urine. Tiles cracked and sinking into floor boards around toilet. Grouting around toilet was yellow. Shower was useless. Sink looked dirty. .

8,3 Excellent
Pros: Views were great.
Cons: The mattress was old and saggy. The room temperature was far too high so we had to keep windows open which meant we heard every passing car.
1,0 Poor
Pros: Location
Cons: Booked for 5 nights and had to leave after 3 nights. Bed was not made once, nor room cleaned, nor dirty cups removed, no fresh tea/milk supplied in those 3 days! Fire door right outside room had a sign on it “please close door quietly”. The door had no fire door closer on it. These are standard fittings that cost 30 quid and ensure the fire door always closes without banging. It is clear that the Sandgate Hotel had had complaints about the noise from the fire door banging, due to lack of fire door closer, but rather that fit one, they placed a sign on the door. After 3 nights of being woken up by the fire door banging and our room not being cleaned, we left. We complained, again, on check out and asked if they could refund any part of the pre-paid 5 day stay. The answer was no.

8,0 Excellent
Pros: The room was a spacious suite. Very clean. Lovely view of the sea and great location. Robes were a nice touch and very soft, cosy. Dinner was excellent. The hotel meal deal is good value. The bar staff were very efficient and cocktails were very good. We liked that it is open to the public which adds atmosphere.
Cons: There were no staff on reception when we arrived and we had to wait to check in. When we went down for dinner others waiting to check in too. Could not work the coffee machine in the room, instructions would have been helpful.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely, spacious room. Very clean and comfortable. The whole building (at least the parts we saw) was very nice, and they had a sparkly mirror in the hall outside our room that I was very taken with (much to my husband's amusement!). Good location with a sea view, and an easy walk to town.
Cons: Breakfast seemed to be very limited choices available (maybe because we were there out of season?), but it was all good quality.

9,0 Excellent
Pros: The view was incredible. You could see France clearly and the ferries crossing from Dover. The beach was right outside the hotel and it was easy to walk into the centre of Folkestone. The bathrobes and slippers were a nice touch!
Cons: If I was being fussy I'd say perhaps the toiletries could be slightly better (e.g. separate shampoo & conditioner). You could also clearly hear footsteps from above and doors closing etc., but that's expected from an old hotel.

8,8 Excellent
Pros: Friendly efficient staff. Comfy beds. Lovely location
Cons: Overcharged for room service breakfast. I'm a late stage kidney patient on a restricted diet so ordered only things I could eat from a la carte menu - bread and spread with a pot of tea one day and eggs on toast another. When I queried 18.50 Restaurant Breakfast on bill was told it 'couldn't be itemised'. Why have individual prices on the menu then? Watch out if you're on a budget

3,3 Mediocre
Pros: Location to Chunnel thats all
Cons: Checked in late/early morning got a cold room as only 3-4c outside so had an electric heater for warmth, but having just driven 1100 kms needed sleep. 6 hrs later woke to a disgustingly dirty room - carpet dirty bed was on a slant, bathroom had dirt and mould in shower and behind sink, sink cracked and light inoperative, shower had no pressure. As for breakfast, save your money, nothing like on website, cereal in open bowl but gone stale or soggy and cooked breakfast was unpalatable in the extreme took photos but unable to upload here. On complaining told manager/owner away on holiday and the porter/receptionist/cook/waiter (same guy for everything) couldn't do anything as were only there to TAKE payment and not allowed to compensate
4,0 Okay
Pros: Water was hot, plentiful cereals at breakfast.
Cons: Very tired fittings and furnishings. Wall coverings displayed damp and were lifting. Bed styles were old and dated, but it all worked. Outside the hotel pointing was in need of care, inside had been painted, but was only cosmetic. Serious infrastructure upgrade required.
