breakfast was plentiful, location is really good, staff very helpful. Need to replace the slanted pool table although it helped me win. Room clean and comfortable. Lifts are a pain and take ages, a bit rickety and small but otherwise we enjoyed our stay

Understaffed ”
Broken Dow lifts and very understaffed. 3 counters to checkin with people lined up out the door the whole time I was there trying to check in or out. The staff on the counters can’t even make or amend a booking if you have made an error.

This was the 4th time that we have stayed at this hotel. As always we had a nice time. the entertainment was good and food and drink reasonable priced. The only fault on this visit was that we never did get our toast with our breakfast but the girl on the snack bar was so busy that we didn't like to remind her about it. The rooms could do with a lick of paint but otherwise an enjoyable visit.

Biggest problem was smoking in all the non smoking rooms all our clothes smelt of smoke. We neede to leave window open and toilet fan on. We were on 5 th floor. We paid £76 band b on internet for £25. For £25 to £35 ok apart from smoking. It's a "Blue colour "budget hotel. With bingo and a singer.

Not for the present century, aside from the previously unmentioned car park charge”
Exceptionally dated. The lift almost locked us in and had to be opened manually. The rooms were clean but soiled - I would not feel clean after using the bath. I suspect it is frequented by the elderly, as the activities are things like bingo, which has a prominent stand on the way in. It was quite inexpensive, but I was surprised to learn there was a parking charge equivalent to more than 10% of the room rate. The bed was rock hard and curtains thin. For guests visiting Folkestone, there are hotels nearer, and probably better quality. Other than price and proximity to the Eurotunnel, there is nothing to recommend this hotel, and even then, with the parking charge, I would stay elsewhere or pay a bit more for a Premier Inn.

Never again”
One night was more than enough, pros. Location. Cons. Check-in very slow, beds rock hard, very noisy., lifts have a mind of their own, the stop on every floor athough theres nobody waiting, quicker to take the stairs, although the room was clean the whole hotel looks like it hasnt been touched for years, paint peeling off, dirty and stained wallpaper and ceiling tiles which i thought were illegal and a fire hazard, needs plenty of work to bring it back to life.

Grab the money and run merchants”
Room cleaned but to very poor standard. Had to pay extra for things I would expect to be inclusive for guests such as the pool. Towel rail in bathroom disconnected. Everything right down to the toilet rolls and coffee sachets in the rooms are clearly bought at the cheapest possible cost with absolutely no consideration to quality. But food in the bar very reasonably priced and of a good standard.

There was an additional cost for a sea view. We were kept awake all night by a local disco.”
It’s a cheap hotel. The room was clean. Staff helpful. Facilities good. However it’s very tired. The breakfast at an additional cost was poor quality. We paid extra for a sea view only to be directly opposite a local disco which kept us awake all night.

Quick stop over from France ”
Great value at £40 on Agoda. Hôtel is a bit tired and outdated but still good value at that price. I would have been disappointed if I'd paid more. Positives: the onsite restaurant does an excellent value carvery which is worth a look. Negatives: Walls are very thin you may be disturbed by neighbors. Wifi only in reception area. You have to pay £3.50 for parking which isn't mentioned until arrival.

ok for the cash, need some TLC”
The chairs in the Victorian dining room were ripped and scruffy. I though the room was good value for money with amazing views and I would stay again for the price. Its such a shame as with some TLC a lick of a paint and a good working lift to the 12th floor this could be an amazing hotel.

1 Comfort of beds/room 2 Location 3 Amenable staff
Our third time here The Grand Burstin is so convenient for catching an early ferry or Shuttle train. Although somewhat down-at-heel in appearance, the rooms themselves are fine with comfortable beds. Very close to the centre of town, easy to get to local restaurants. We will be coming again for sure.

Extremely pleasant. Quick check,in and free upgrade to premier room with large balcony. Awesome views of the beach and South coast. A very comfortable and clean room if a little dated. Hearty breakfast buffet in the morning with good selection. Overall incredible value for money and wouldn't think twice about coming back.

Our anual Visit to the Burstin to celibrate ”
Evening entertianment rooms and dinning
Lifts are slow
The Burstin has been our place of celibration every year since we got married. We love Folkstone for it good sea food and shops. The Burstin is a great place to be based as it is near to all the places that we enjoy going to. We only go BB, the breakfast is great although self service there is much to choose from. The Bedroom was great with on suit that catered for my wife's disability.

Appalling, even the floors are marked like prison wings.”
Rejected the first room because the curtains wouldn't close. The hotel has local council tenants included in some rooms and unfortunately it feels like a poor council estate and not a hotel. This place would make a great TV reality show it's so bad. Would have been good value for £30 room but sadly not. Shan't be going back.
