From the welcoming booking confirmation email to the time we left the hotel the treatment was excellent. After a long days journey we received a very warm welcome at the hotel. Before settling into our room, we enjoyed the complementary beer and homemade cake on the patio. From the patio there is access to private shared gardens. The whole hotel...

The Relish was a very comfortable and welcoming place to stay and an improvement from other hotels n the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Lots of little touches to make your stay pleasant. Our room was compact but well appointed and very clean. The toilets were a tad dodgey, but I found that was the case throughout...

Lovely clean freshly decorated rooms with the back rooms having a stunning view over the private park the Hotel shares with other residents. Good breakfast. Communal fridge downstairs offers complimentary Chardonnay and beer - shame there was no Sav Blanc!! Easy walking to town.

This was our second visit to the Relish as a one night stop-over before we caught the channel tunnel and again we found it to be just the ticket. The rooms are clean, newly decorated and have a feel of boutique luxury about them, lots of little touches that make you feel that you might be staying at a much...

Bright, clean, comfortable. And the rooms are good too! Really, the hotel is placed well in the town, close to some super restaurants and the Leas for an early evening/morning stroll. I stayed in 3 of their rooms over 3 weeks. Each had a high level of finish. The smallest - the single called 'Box' is very small by chain...

As previous writers declare, nice rooms, piece of cake, and glass of vino are available to guests and all was fine. My only complaint was the most surly welcome we received. We have a young family and the children were not made to feel welcome. It was as though the owner was worried they might move a cushion out of...

We are staying at The Relish after trying out the hotels in Hythe and finding them lacking. We were welcomed warmly and were very impressed with the facilities available. It is a lovely building with very clean and comfortable accommodation. We would not hesitate to stay here next time we visit our relatives.

Six of us spent five days touring around Kent before a July cruise from Dover. Canterbury was booked up with the British Open but we discovered the Relish in Folkestone by the sea and ten miles from Dover. What a charming and well run B&B. Nice rooms and bathrooms but rather on the (English) smaller side. The staff was more...

We stayed in the Stone room for 2 nights in August. The room was nice ... I would say 4 star quality. It was exceptionally clean. The bed was firm just as I like it. The pillows were a bit softer than I like. Very nice bathroom. What makes the property 5 star are the extras. The free wine/beer/water/tea/coffee/cake is...
