Travel Blogs from Folkestone
After planning and planning for a year (little over!) the
day has finally come for us to start our travels. Our flight is tonight at 9pm
and we are being picked up shortly. I am very exited and cant wait for the
adventure to start.
I look forward to updating the blog as we travel... first stop THAILAND!
On a side note....
A year ago I made a list of 30 things to do before I am 30. I found the list recently and have decided to try to complete the list. ...
We leave tomorrow. The preparations (which can be broadly categorised as wedding, work, and travel related) have been almost all consuming. As for the wedding, Dorette has been heroic and I'm looking forward to it with excitement and trepidation in equal measure. I'll save the rest of what I have to say for the day itself, as is only right. As for work, I am being retained by my firm as a remote consultant and I'm ...
Arrived, ate biscuits, showered, bed.
Need to be up at 6.15am for the eight o'clock ferry. That means half of a proper night’s sleep. Urgh.
I stopped for keep-me-awake coffee at about 11pm at Reading Services. The place was deserted. There were more members of staff (about five) than customers (me). I had a Sicilian lemon muffin my coffee. Tasty.
In the past few years Sicilian lemons and products ...
Needless to say the journey from Titchfield to Folkestone on a Friday night (and dark by this time) was fairly uneventful, marked only by the Hindhead tunnel on the A3, giving us a cheap thrill by opening the sunroof, winding all the windows down, and letting our recently installed Milltek exhaust system resonate through the tunnel. Our arrival at the Holiday Inn Express in Folkestone, based near the entrance ...
... on the TV we found the country was in the midst of a snow storm. That night thousands of people couldn't get home from work and half of them spent up to 12 hours stuck in their cars on the motorways. Had we not decided to go straight to Folkestone we would have been with them. The hotel finished up booked out so we were lucky we decided to book on-line that morning. England was in chaos. Next day we were to board the train, Le Shuttle, with the car for the channel crossing to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Relish Folkestone
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
HOTEL RELISH, FOLKESTONE, KENT
REVIEWERS: JON AND LEANNE MORGAN
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.
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.
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!
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.
