Great dentist but private only not nhs.

Total Dental Care

92 Sandgate Rd, Folkestone CT20 2BE, UK – 01303 255559

Excellent service no long waiting period staff warm warm friendly .

Excellent experience at TDC. Have been registered here for 1 year and been in twice for emergency treatment. Both times they have seen me on the day, given the treatment necessary and completed my normal half yearly check up to save me having to come back. I'm petrified of the dentist yet my dentist here is extraordinary at making me feel relaxed. Highly recommend.

Guildhall Street Surgery

65 Guildhall St N, Folkestone CT20 1EJ, UK – 01303 851411

Very busy GP Practice

Dr M A Hossain & Partners

Guildhall Surgery, 65 - 69 Guildhall St N, Folkestone CT20 1EJ, UK – 01303 851411

Often late but who isn't in the NHS? we should blame patients for that not staff. They offer double appointments for people that need extra long to whine so if people only book one appointment and then ramble on for ages about what happened in 1976 to their daughters back then the doctor can't exactly kick them out. Would give five stars as staff always polite and helpful, and premises always clean, but they lose two stars purely because the receptionists have all started to ask me what I'm calling about. It's private!! And if they don't have any medical training then they don't know what is serious and what isn't. Also they tell people to ring 111 once they're fully booked but I work for 111 and we don't give appointments during the day. We don't have doctors during the day so ringing 111 doesn't achieve anything. But other than those points, great surgery. Won't be changing.

Very busy local GP Practice

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Folkestone Household Waste Recycling Centre

Ross Way, Shorncliffe, Folkestone CT20 3UJ, UK – 0300 041 7373

I know it can be really annoying when you have to wait to enter the recycling site (which has caused some poor reviews) but bearing in mind the small size of this centre and the stringent health and safety regulations (to keep us, the public safe) I think they are doing a jolly good job. I have found them really helpful. Today I visited to get rid of some wire fencing and asbestos and was helped and assisted promptly. Great to get rid of stuff and know it is done safely and will be recycled. Yes maybe next time there is a bit of a wait to get in but you can always turn around and go back later or just take it easy life s busy as it is. ☺

Staff are always helpful, sometimes long queues because so small but can't be helped

Highly professional business and would hugely recommend this to everyone.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Conchitas Restaurant

22, Bouverie Road West, Folkestone, Kent, Folkestone, Kent CT20 2SZ, UK – 01303 242484

Loved this restaurant. I have a lactose intolerance and they were more than considerate, they went over and above to adapt dishes and even had an insanely good dairy free ice cream off menu to offer me. The food was all delicious, very generous portions, reasonable prices and the cocktails were less than £10 a jug! The staff were exceedingly polite, efficient and friendly. Couldn't ask for more from a restaurant.

Great food and plenty of it. Excellent friendly staff. Well priced as we'll. Very happy.

Grounds of the Primary Academy, Park Farm Rd, Folkestone CT19 5DN, UK – 01303 850203

My children have attended this nursery for many months now, and I have to say as parents we are delighted with our children's progress. The staff cannot do enough to help, and we are always greeted with a smile every morning. I am expecting my 3rd baby in the summer and there is no doubt in my mind that little oaks will be the pre school of my choice again. If you are looking for a nursery, pay them a visit you will not be disappointed. Just want to say thank you girls for everything you do :-)

It is with great sadness that we have to say a fond farewell to you all. Over the last 7 years have cuddled, cared and loved our children. They would not be the children they are now without you and you have made a huge benefit to their lives. We are truly grateful for all your care and support and you have made us feel that we are all one big family.
