      Fab wkend break in Relish


      Just had to write about Hotel Relish - I had a fantastic break with my grilfriend back in November, thinking of a return trip soon. The cats, fire, beautiful rooms, relaxed atmosphere all combined to make a night away a truely relaxed break away from London. I urge you to go, I certainly will be returning for our next anniversary!

      Excellent Family Hotel


      We stayed at the Hotel Relish for one night on the way between Paris and London.

      The rooms are very nicely decorated, quiet and clean, but not very big.

      Service was friendly and efficient.

      The hospitality bar was a pleasant surprise: well stocked with water, wine, beer, coffee, tea, fruit and homemade cake...

      The breakfast buffet was very good.

      Overall excellent value.

      Great boutique B & B


      My extended family and i stayed at the Hotel Relish prior to a cruise out of Dover. The hotel was wonderful in setting up tours during our couple of days as well as all transportation to and from airport and cruise terminal. friendly attentive staff. delightful breakfasts and good location to explore. the two cats are an added bonus for cat lovers. rooms are enjoyable. Not a big hotel atmosphere. feel like a guest in someone's home. Don't miss the wonderful huge garden area to walk in behind the hotel. highly recommend

      DATE: 29/4/05


      After a long trip down to Kent, the Hotel Relish was a sanctuary. Calm and peaceful, we were provided with a complimentary glass of beer and wine on arrival. Tea and coffee (and home-made cakes) were complimentary throughout our stay and were provided via a kitchen area downstairs. There was a peaceful "chill out" lounge in which to relax. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel staff were very helpful, the breakfast was lovely and they suggested some very nice eating places within walking distance for our evening meal. Would definitely stay again if we travel down that way.

      Hotel Relish is a must


      The Hotel room was not as large as expected but the decor and cleanliness more than made up for this.

      A warm welcome was there from the time we arrived untill the time we left.

      You will find the hotel is just as it is discribed, right down to the crips white sheets.

      Go and enjoy your stay.

      Highly recommended!


      Me and the wife stayed for one night and had nothing but good things to say about this hotel. The hosts were very friendly and made you feel at home, room was lovely with gorgeous bathroom and soft bed, breakfast was great and homemade cake was delicious.

      Highly recommended!



      My wife & I stayed for just one night at the Hotel Relish in Folkestone. The Hotel has been renovated to a high degree of decor and is exceptionally clean. We stayed in the Park Room which was warm, welcoming and very comfortable - the bed was one of the best we've slept in. The hospitality of our hosts Andrew & Michael was excellent. Though obviously busy, they both made us feel like we were their only guests. The hotel feels more like a home rather than a hotel. The home made bread and cakes and the sumptuous breakfast were all excellent. We unreservedly recommend this hotel and will definitely be coming back!



      We only stayed at the hotel relish for one night but it was lovely! The staff really want to help you in every way they can. We stayed in one of the basic double bedrooms and it was plenty big enough and extremely clean. The hotel has been finished beautifully and i would recommend it to anyone! fantastic!

      Beautiful hotel


      Staying at the Relish hotel was a lovely experience.

      The host's were very accommodating and the hotel was amazing.

      There is a very relaxed atmosphere at this hotel with beautiful views and most tastefully decorated rooms.

      The breakfast was a treat and served to your liking.

      I would definitely recommend staying here when visiting Folkestone!!

      The Hotel Relish - A Quality Hotel


      I had a one night stay at the Hotel Relish in Folkestone.

      The Hotel has been very tastefully renovated and each room is individual. The Hotel is exceptionally clean and well looked after.

      The two things that stand out above all of the other good points are:

      1. The Hospitality of Andrew & Michael (your hosts during your stay) is excellent, they both go out of their way to make you feel at home.

      2. The breakfast was excellent.

      Locally produced Organic produce and home made bread and cakes.

      Well worth a stay when you are visiting Folkestone.

This was our first experience with Euros too (of which we had none) and necessitated a walk of around 3K to nearest ATM to extract said monetary denomination to pay for our campsite. As campsites go, 'twas a tad lacking (like toilet paper :O) but apparently this is a Belgium thing as only one had paper in whole of Belgium as we were to find ...

So John, Fran and Stewart ate a double scoop Mr Whippy in 5 degree howling winds. Unbelievable. "This was the coldest ice cream I have ever had. It was so cold the ice cream never even melted onto my hands at all while eating it!" John As Stu aimed the Peugeot towards home we went via the ...

It remains to be seen if the new version of Jane is an improvement! Mum claims that it hasn’t rained much in Bournemouth and we certainly had some dry weather, and even a little sunshine, enough to remind us what a lovely part of the country this is. Scamp ...
