    Very good

    The Carlton Hotel is right on the front in Folkestone. It is a budget hotel but we had no complaints. Our room was clean and tidy and the breakfast was great. The service was very good both at check in and at breakfast. Very close to Channel Tunnel.

    Cheap and cheerful! My friend and I stayed at the Carlton Hotel for a weekend in July 2011 whilst attending the British Open Golf Tournament at nearby Sandwich. The hotel was centrally located in Folkestone with good sea views and a small car park at rear or pay and display close by. Just a few minutes walk to restaurants and central railway station. Hotel reception and bar staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room rate included a full english breakfast as well as cereal. Overall good value.

    The room was quite small with just enough room to open the wardrobe door. Overall the hotel was somewhat weathered and in need of modernisation.The staff at breakfast though friendly were in a haste to remove your plate before you'd even finished eating!

    Staff were welcoming and friendly

    Hotel was scruffy, dated and barely clean. The shower, over bath, varied from hot to cold then for a period no water at all. The breakfast was served on a side plate as it was so small. We were only there for 1 night, would dread to think what it would be like to stay longer.

    Fabulous

    Spacious room overlooking the Leas and Chanel. The bed was comfortable and breakfast reasonable .

    The shower was a mere dribble and took about 10 minutes of running to heat up.
