Burlington Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Short but sweet stay. Room is spacious enough, bed comfortable. Facilities are there in the room, as should be. Friendly staff. Restaurant seems casual, bar was empty when I was there, maybe wasn`t staffed. Looks great though, blends in with the decor of the hotel. Close to the sea, perhaps 5 minute walk or less. Stunning view along the coast / cliff. I`d recommend this place for sure

Good value for money, our room was small (we stayed in standard room only)but nice and clean looks like just redecorated. We had a snack food in a bar and it was very tasty. The bar look nice but needs better deco, downstairs cocktail bar and restaurant looks lovely and modern. Hallway and the waiting room is very beautiful.

We decided to combine a nice meal with an over night stay at a beautiful hotel which is maybe not immediately obvious to being suitable for a wheelchair user but was perfectly possible with a little forward planning (access through an alternate door) The room was an absolute delight for a wheelchair user - the bathroom was as large as the bedroom - and well planned for disabled used. Slight downside is that the ramp to access the bedroom was rather steep and I would not have been able to use this independently however we were advised that this will be taken care of in the ongoing works due to be completed early spring 2018. Meal in the restaurant was very pleasant due to the attention of the delightful Andy, and we left feeling very well looked after!

Great hotel. Very well located, just in front of the Folkestone seas side. Big rooms and pet friendly which is a rarity in U.K. Totally fair cost/value rates. Good restaurant and nice typical bar. Clean and warm atmosphere.

The Burlington was once a fancy resort for the gentry, but in recent years as Folkestone lost its edge so did The Burlington, dropping from 4 to 3 stars. It's a shame as the hotel is easily worthy of a 4 star status. The rooms have been modernised to a high level, the beds are huge and the bathrooms bright, clean and spacious. The reception staff were extremely helpful, giving us some background on the hotel and dinner options around the town. The breakfast was good, buffet style full english and also continental options. The highlight was a club sandwich for lunch, it was honestly all I've ever wanted in a sandwich, egg, bacon, chicken, lettuce, tomato, chips, it really was delicious.

With family and friends living in Folkestone, plus an excellent jazz club at the Tower, we visit quite regularly and have stayed in most of the hotels in and around Folkestone. This time we stayed at the Burlington Hotel - and what a great choice it was. From the friendly welcome on arrival right until our departure, it was a pleasure to be there. Our room was wonderful - modern, quite large with lovely furnishings, a great wall mounted tv - and a really good modern bathroom with large shower etc. The bed was very comfortable, my only complaint being the extremely hard pillows. Breakfast in the newly refurbished dining room with light streaming in through the large windows, was a real pleasure. There was a very good choice for breakfast, both hot and cold dishes. We didn't have dinner there as we were going out for the evening, but we will definitely be tempted next time. The location of the Burlington is a great asset - set just off the sea front (the Leas) and within ten minutes walk of the town centre. There is limited space in the car park, but street parking around the hotel is plentiful. Having now stayed here I can think of no reason whatsoever why we would book anywhere else in Folkestone. It was a pleasure to be there. But I will take my own pillow next time.

The Burlington has had a massive refurbishment in the 5+ years I have used it for work stay overs. The rooms are fantastic, bright and fresh, great wifi and TV signal etc. The new breakfast / dining room is lovely. The staff are super lovely and helpful. I use this hotel for any stay i need to do for work, as the price is so reasonable and you have such a comfortable stay. The breakfast i had this week was lovely, much improved from previous stays.

Folkestone's most attractive feature is The Leas, dating from when it was a superior resort for the gentry. The Burlington has survived here more or less intact, and provides an excellent base for visitors (along with its neighbour The Grand). Staff are professional and friendly, rooms are of a good standard, and the grounds are well-maintained. Though breakfast is buffet, it's of a high standard. And you can park. Avoid the chains and stay here.

Live nearby & watched with appreciation as the Burlington keeps improving. Experienced a very well managed & catered funeral reception recently, that ranks as on of the best places ever for sad occasions. Discrete, professional & top notch food. Fiends are currently staying there now, November 2017, & are so impressed by the newly refurbed rooms at ace bargain prices. Well run proper lodge for short or long stay & only a few yards from cliff top views of romantic on a dark moonlit night, seeing the twinkling lights of the French coastline. Book now !l

We recently organised a School Reunion in the Domino Room at the Burlington Hotel. From start to finish I was impressed with each aspect of the process. We were given menu suggestions and a choice of rooms for our event. The planning went smoothly and when the big day arrived the room was ready and nicely set up. The serving staff and barman were all very polite, good humoured, helpful and patient. I am very pleased that we chose the Burlington and would recommend it to others.
