Kentmere Guest House
This Bed and Breakfast is only eight minute’s drive from the channel tunnel terminal in Folkestone’s town centre. All rooms are en-suite and non-smoking. One of the family rooms can sleep five at a squeeze. The Continental breakfast is available as standard and a Full English Breakfast is available for a surcharge on most days, however you should check with the owner the night before if you want to make sure.
Reviews of this guest house are generally very positive, citing the friendly and attentive owners and the nice breakfast. Bedding is described as clean and crisp and the rooms are well maintained.
Rooms in the Kentmere Guest House have been reported in reviews to be a little on the small side. Very tall guests might find the beds and bathrooms a bit of a squeeze, however the value for money at this guest house is truly excellent.
The owners are also known to be very helpful. If you’re setting off early they’ll put on an early starter continental breakfast and I’ve heard that they leave the iron out in the hall if you’re off to a wedding.
Wireless internet is available for a small surcharge, TV and DVD Players are available in every room along with coffee and tea making facilities. There is free parking on site which is locked up after hours, however please note that you may not be able to move your car after that time.
“This was perfect. Near the tunnel, cheap and spotlessly clean. We wanted a quick getaway for an early train to France and after arriving very late (the owner arranged for someone to wait up for our late arrival) we were pleasantly surprised. Don’t expect the ritz but it is clean, convenient and exactly right for what we needed; a family room. I would definitely stay here again”
