Lived up to prior billing. Chris the host provided a first class service and was extremely friendly and helpful with directions and top tips. The complimentary glass of vino each day was a nice touch together with the endless free tea and coffee and the breakfast was outstanding. Our room (The Ochre) was large and extremely clean but at £125...

Free upgrade upon arrival. Homemade cake and a free drink made us feel right at home. Lovely room and wonderful view of the grounds at the rear. Breakfast was delicious and filling. Hosts were very welcoming. Parked right outside with no parking fee to pay. Close to lots of good eating places and the town centre.

What a gem! This is the ONLY place to stay in Folkestone for those who appreciate excellent customer service, comfort and a hearty breakfast for the days adventures ahead. From start to finish, I felt welcomed and was assisted with my enquiries, taxi requests and questions about services and shopping in the area. My room was a delight - modern...

Overall, it was a lovely B&B, if a little expensive, with big, well equipped rooms, and a lovely breakfast, and just a couple of minutes walk to the sea. The website says “Spacious rooms located at the top of the building, with views of Augusta Gardens to the White Cliffs...

A lovely place to stay. Welcomed with cake and wine. Room was lovely. Breakfast exceptional. So nice we returned two days later and were upgraded to the honeymoon suite. A lovely end to a quick trip to UK. Would stay there anytime.

Although I was early to check in, the staff were most welcoming and tried to accomodate me by giving me a room. unfortunately this didn't happen, but i was not bothered - it was their thought and hospitality that counted! Upon returning, I learnt my luggage was already...

We stayed at the Relish for one night last weekend. Couldn't fault a thing - extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. We were lucky enough to be given a free upgrade too!

We stayed at The Relish in September for 2 nights. What a fabulous establishment! We stayed on the top floor (by choice) in "Cliffs". The view was very nice and the room was superbly furnished with very good quality furniture. The bed was huge and there was plenty of room to move about. There was a great TV in the...
