    Hotel in Folkestone

    Can anyone recommend a hotel in or near Folkestone with secure parking please?

    Thanks

    None of the ones I know have properly secure parking (such as locked garages) but I haven't heard of any thefts from the Premier Inns/Holiday Inn in Folkestone or just up the M20 at Ashford. That said, I'd always put a lock of some sort on and remove luggage.

    There are a few B&Bs within a few miles that are sufficiently out of town to make thefts not a serious risk. I'd choose one of those if I had to leave my bike anywhere. There aren't any particularly nice hotels in Folkestone itself, to be honest, but plenty in the surrounding countryside, within 20 mins of the tunnel or port at Dover.

    (On a completely unconnected topic, there's a traveller encampment at M20 J11 which seems to have coincided with a lot of car, trailer and caravan thefts. What are the chances?)

    Assuming you want somewhere “bike friendly” (yawn ), just stay here http://www.alkhamvalleyview.co.uk/

    Cracking full English, good WiFi (), and the bike will be safe as houses.

    Avoid room 3 though

    We don't stay in England now we go straight through tunnel and stay at Ibis on other side of chunnel, there is a big shopping complex there with lots of food, the bike park is next to the police compound and is hidden from any roads but in plain sight of rooms, as secure as you can get. the trains run every 15 minutes and will let you on if your early or late.

    We have done this for a few years now.

    I just wouldn't stay on this side again.

    The Rob Roy has ground anchors fitted on their drive? I've stayed there a few times and my bikes never been touched. Very basic though, clean, but basic.

    If you'e going to Alkham, you may as well stay at the Marquis at Alkham.
