The Portland Hotel
This excellent mid-range hotel near the Leas Cliff Hall in a Folkestone sea front location with one of the best bar / grill / beer gardens on Folkestone’s sunny seafront promenade. As it’s one of the smaller hotels in Folkestone, there isn’t a reception and guests are asked to check in via Skuba Bar next door.
Staff at the Portland Hotel are well-known to be friendly, helpful and courteous, in fact the Skuba Bar next door is an extremely popular venue for lunch, dinner and evening drinks for the locals.
As you’d expect from an Edwardian building, the rooms are spacious, however there is no lift – so book on the lower floors if you find stairs a challenge.
All of the recently refurbished rooms have en-suite showers, a television, coffee and tea making facilities, hairdryers and free-wifi. Breakfast is included and is continental style with a wide variety of cereals, cheeses, yoghurts, croissants and fruit.
The Portland Hotel is a favourite choice for visitors to The Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone, and is also right on The Leas (Folkestone’s seafront).
There is plenty of free parking in the area to the west of the hotel if you’re prepared to look for it, alternatively you could park in the nearby Leas Cliff Car Park however check the car park’s opening hours against your departure time as they do close the gates at night.
Sorry, no children or pets at The Portland Hotel in Folkestone. Check in via the bar when you arrive.
