It’s not just the super-comfy interiors that make The Relish such a tempting port of call. There’s a sense of generosity here: a drink on the house each night in the sitting room; tea and cakes on tap all day; free internet throughout. This is a grand 1850s merchant’s house on the posh side of town – lovely old bricks and mortar, softly contemporary interiors. Laura and Rakesh took over recently and have already pulled out the paintbrushes, so wind up the cast-iron staircase to find bedrooms that make you smile. You get Hypnos beds with padded headboards, crisp white linen and pretty throws. There’s a sense of space, a sofa if there’s room, big mirrors and lovely bathrooms. All are great value for money. Downstairs candles flicker on the mantelpieces above an open fire, the high-ceilinged dining room comes with stripped floors and padded benches and in summer you can decamp onto the terrace for breakfast, a communal garden stretching out beyond. You’re one street back from Folkestone’s cliff-top front for big sea views. Steps lead down to smart gardens, the promenade and waterside restaurants.
