Leas Cliff Hotel maybe?
It's on The Leas, overlooking the channel, though you'd not realise that when you're inside at a gig.
This is my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for best venues and stuff, and I hear it was a useful reference for those who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from the name of a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
