After posting "LF: Folkestone Hotel - Inn - Motel" back in 2005 and not receiving any recommendations, I came across the Garden Lodge in Densole which is a few kilometers up the road from Folkestone. Both my one-night stays while waiting to take the Euro Tunnel the next morning were pleasant and comfortable. And incredibly, I woke up to crystal...

Where do we put our luggage or possessions as this is a home and not suitable for a bed and breakfast. If you are sharing your home with paying guests you have offer them something that is up to date, fresh and clutter free. If you were a lodger you might put up with but as a paying guest, you...

This little house is dated but gives off a cozy homely atmosphere. I like the fact that you share a living room because you get to become more friendly with the owners and get to know more about their ornaments and where they came from. The owners are truly friendly and I would stay there again.

We had the misfortune to stay at this hell hole, as a stopover for Euro-tunnel. First impressions should have been enough - but after a long road trip, tiredness ruled. The owner was rude, unhelpful and unwelcoming. The room was small, cluttered and smelled musty. The owners introduction was that of; "You are a guest in MY HOME and you...

Despite undergoing work recently, this place SHOULD BE CONDEMNED. We understand this b&b was recently part of a tv programme......... Not sure which, perhaps hotel horrors! The owner is rude and the accommodation is depressing, I gave up the will to live whilst trying to eat breakfast one morning, the clutter and rubbish around is prolific! The place smells damp...

Well, it's only since staying there, we now know, it was the subject of a TV prof. The reality is this, you may, paint and decorate every square inch of any B & B. However, too run any business you need some o e with the fundamentals at least an embryo of a brain. This is where it all falls...

This was honestly the worst place I have ever stayed in. Hosts were rude to the point of disgust and if there had nt been a rainstorm we would have immediately kept. The place was filthy, I caught a skin infection fom the pool, and rules and regulations were everywhere. No you can't se your own hair straighteners! Breakfast had...

I just want to say that you have a disgusting attitude and a terrible customer service attitude. The recent write-up's on Trip Advisor regarding your establishment (September & August 2012) initially put me off stopping in your B&B, but unable to secure a booking elsewhere I booked 2 nights stay. When I arrived at approx 7pm, you abruptly greeted me...

Is this place for real in the 21st Century? It is run worse than the Bates Motel by a woman with worse customer care skills than Cruella DeVill. It is dirty, dusty, tacky and full of terrible old tat absolutely everywhere - be warned if Cruella doesn't suffocate you with her attitude, then her crappy clutter certainly will! Believe me...
