The Grand has an unrivalled position on the South Coast, with stunning views of the award winning Coastal Park and the busy Channel shipping lanes, and even France on clear days. Enjoy dining at The Grand with two unique and differing experiences available to suit every palate.
For Fine dining there is nothing better than The Palm Court, Folkestone’s finest rendezvous, with its unique ambience, Live Weekend Pianist and superb views of the English Channel.
For something more casual, try a pint of “The Grand Ale” in Keppels, which has its own unique atmosphere, and London-style wine bar feel. Finally for Morning Coffee or Afternoon Tea, why not Visit the Salon de Thé and try a delicious homemade Scone and Tea-Pigs tea.
Complimenting this is the best suite of function rooms in Kent, to rival any Castle or Town Hall. Every Function room also overlooks the gardens and sea, and The Grand is known as the venue of choice for the principal local dinners, conferences, exhibitions and weddings of almost any size.
And where better to stay? The Grand’s suites of accommodation are among the finest ever built, and as well as gracious sitting and bedrooms, contain up-to-date bathrooms and kitchens so you can cater for yourself if you wish.
The Grand is the place to be for Conferences, Weddings, Events or a candle-lit dinner for two and the accessibility of our magnificent coastal position is second to none. The Grand is within two miles of the M20 motorway, the railway and bus stations, the shopping centre, the harbour, the Channel Tunnel terminal and 45 minutes from the M25 London orbital motorway.
The Grand also holds a responsibility to Folkestone, actively supporting a local charity every year and ensuring the finest Kent produce is served in our bars and restaurants.
