Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 411 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good location for Channel Tunnel Perfectly situated if you are planning to use the Channel Tunnel. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Room comfortable and WiFi reception adequate. November 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy for the Eurotunnel Ideal location for an early tunnel crossing. Hotel is relatively new and in very good condition. November 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy for The Channel Tunnel Second visit to Holiday Inn Express at Folkestone. As before we had a comfortable stay, nice breakfast and convenient for The Channel Tunnel. November 9, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Breakfast included The staff and the room were fine. We had to have a continental on leaving the country this was bagged and waiting for our departure (This went in the nearest bin and we had hot food at the Euro hub) on the way back from holiday we stayed for the full beakfast but to call that a breakfast is an insult. my children had the hot breakfast sausage beans and solid scrambled egg (How can that be). they left it. Next time we will stay further away November 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value and great staff Have stayed a few times now , rooms clean , excellent value and the front staff are always superb. For a family of four with breakfast included its the best value I have found . Thank you November 4, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Decent hotel I have used this hotel for many years now as a useful stopover point before crossing to Calais. The late check in facility is great, as is the cleanliness of the rooms. However, on my most recent stay I was really disappointed with check in as the man on the desk managed to get through the whole process without making eye contact, managing to make me feel invisible - really really annoying. The room was clean and adequate although you can tell a man designed it given that the plug sockets were at one end of the room and the mirror was at the other. Is it too much to ask for the desk to have a mirror over it next to the plug sockets for the convenience of guests? The breakfast the next morning was a pretty horrible affair consisting as it does of a hot plate with scrambled yellow concrete, beans and sausages, and an ancient rotating toaster - the best bits were the hot rolls and pastries. However, its been located purposely to serve Eurotunnel and for a clean bed after a 300 mile drive and an early train the next day it was fine. November 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent hotel for Euro Tunnel The Holiday Inn Folkestone a great experience. Staff very helpful, friendly and polite. Room comfort - perfect. Breakfast very acceptable. Perfect for a nights stay before travel with parking available for nights whilst away, or parking whilst away with hotel stay on return. at very good rates November 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Start of holiday Excellent reception staff. For dinner we were offered the options of eating in the hotel, or a list of local restaurants or takeaways that would deliver to the hotel (not encountered this before!) We chose to eat in and were not disappointed by the somewhat limited choices (which still managed to cater for most tastes). Taffy the member of staff was great. Breakfast was OK but limited when compared with other places we had stayed (but then, it was included in the price and offered all the usual things). We did not pay the listed room rate as we had found a deal - I think that it would have been overpriced at the full rate. November 3, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by no shower, no service Arrived to be told that we'd have to wait an hour and a half before we could even order a pizza as there was only one chef (we were offered a variety of take-away but frankly were too tired to bother and I do not like ordering these as they inevitably arrive just warm at best#. Next morning the shower mixer wasn't working, called down and was told someone was on their way. Waited, nobody came so called to say we needed to leave, was told the person was one the way and couldn't be cancelled. Nobody came. Went down, breakfast poor selection #no bacon for a full English?). going back to Folkestone this week, will be booking a rival this time. Staff all nice, offered a small sum in compensation but really just want the facilities to work. November 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient for Channel Tunnel Location meant we were able to take our time travelling to the hotel, have a restful evening and overnight, then get an early Shuttle next morning, taking a breakfast box with us. Only negative was that the advertised internet access required registration with some 3rd party company, which we were not prepared to do. Why not provide simple Wifi access? November 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Hotel withas friendly staff in a great location for the Euro Tunnel Terminal Stayed here with my wife and youngest son prior to a quick shopping trip to Calais. Plenty of free parking. Duty manageress very welcoming and offered advice on local eateries and how to get to the tunnel terminal in the morning. Had a comfy night in the family room followed by a breakfast that set us up for the day. Would definitely stay here again. November 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Well located, great welcome Good stopover before our journey via Eurotunnel. Reception staff were exceptional, helping with restaurant recommendations and getting some letters posted. Far better than most budget hotel staff. Thank you. November 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Staff Very convenient if you nead to cross the tunnel. Staff very nice and helpful. November 1, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Well placed for chunnel Quiet spot, very handy for the chunnel. Clean room, good breakfast. As with other Holiday Inn Express hotels the mattresses are always too hard and leave us with aching joints! Get some mattress toppers please! November 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel Very professional check in, good room - a nice hotel. Well done IHG November 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT NIGHTS SLEEP Well located, really welcoming staff. Great breakfast in the morning, early train on the chunnel. Fantastically comfortable beds and pillows October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent price and service Great position for the tunnel. Hotel was very clean an staff were very helpful with my children would definitely stay there again. October 29, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Issues Vert limited choice of fruit at breakfast. Management should take into account fact that statin users cannot eat grapefruit. TV remote controls in both rooms we stayed in failed to work propery - somewhat surprising as they were new. On the positive side, staff were helpful, room was in good decorative order and hotel very convenient for the channel tunnel. October 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stopover First time at this hotel, used a a stopover before early morning Eurotunnel. Ideally located, good standard of rooms and very friendly staff. Will definitely use again. October 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value and so convenient for the tunnel Got there late, Welcome was a bit average but I guess the guy on reception was tired too. It's a no nonsense hotel, very clean, very convenient. Quite basic only one towel in a room booked for two. The bed was rather firm and not particularly comfy. However everything is generally where it should be and the room is very good value. I'd recommend it. I've stayed three or four times now. Last stay was perhaps not quite as good but overall the formula is sound. It's perfect for an overnight stay to get the first train over to France in the morning. It really is only 5 minutes drive to the check in at the Tunnel. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location for Channel Tunnel This hotel is very well located for people travelling to or from the continent using the Channel Tunnel. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Choice at breakfast was a bit limited but the quality was good. October 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great assistance from staff The hotel is what you would expect of HIE. The evening meal was a bit disappointing but this was more than made up for the outstanding help given by the staff after my car had broken down and I had to make arrangements for a hire car. A big thank you to the staff for their help and cheerfulness. October 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient channel tunnel crossing stopover Good location for an overnight stop to/from the channel tunnel, but nothing otherwise in the region. As such it serves a purpose. The rooms are basic, but generally clean while the staff are friendly and attentive. I would use this hotel again. October 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff; comfortable room The staff were extremely helpful and pre-emptive of possible needs for connecting to Tunnel crossing. The hotel was very clean and bright, and there was a great ambience. The room was extremely comfortable too. October 10, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very poor customer service I stay in quite a few IHG hotels, and often in Holiday Inn Express hotels - this was the worst I have stayed in. The customer service was appalling - we waited over 10 mins to check in whilst the receptionist chatted on the phone (an off duty member of staff actually checked us in as he could see how long we waited), and then when we went to get a drink the same guy took an age to serve us (and other people) in the bar, couldn't remember an order for 3 drinks - really disappointing. The common area reminded me of a school common room. The wifi connection was terrible - very poor signal, and so slow as to be pointless. October 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by time out friendly, clean, comfortable and good value............ October 9, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheerless Not a good start to the holiday Did not enjoy our stay. Cannot understand why cold air is contanstly blown in the public areas. It was not high Summer so why the cold air all the time. .The redeeming factor was the close proximity to the channel tunnel. This Holiday Inn Express Folkestone is unfortunately not unique with this type of management. We had just spent five days at the Holiday Inn Express in Leeds and it was run in exactly the same way. If we had not pre booked and pre paid all the accommodation we would have checked out the first day in Leeds and cancelled the stay in Folkestone. October 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent overall experience Lovely friendly atmosphere? Great location. Excellent facilities. I would highly recommend. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very convenient location for the Channel Tunnel which we have used previously and on that basis knew we would have a comfortable stay before continuin I would recommend this hotel whether for the purpose we used it or for a longer stay to explaore the area. It provides a quiet atmosphere and is easily located. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely hotel and very nice staff We arrived late evening after a holiday to france where I had just come out of Hospital , the Lady on the desk couldn't have been more helpful , the room was lovely so had a great nights sleep . Plenty of choice for Breakfast and a very quick checkout , would highly recommend this Hotel . Especially if using the Euro Tunnel it was easy to find and only 5 minutes away . Just what I needed .
