We booked this hotel on Christmas Day for a 2 day stay commencing the following day so wondered whether we had been a bit hasty but it turned out to be an excellent choice. The location was very convenient - just off the A2 and a couple of minutes walk from the Park and Ride bus station from which you... More

Stayed here for 1 night with my husband and 2 children and sorry to say it was very disappointing. The inn could be so much better. We had a family room and although spacious unfortunately we didn't have a very comfortable stay due to the mattresses on both the double bed and pull out sofa being awful. You could literally...

The rooms are very well set, warm and comfortable so I had a good decent night's sleep! The continential breakfast although good, but limited choices. Will definitely come back with my partner in December for the stay together with Christmas meal.

Very good value with a comfortable and clean room and a splendid continental breakfast included were all positives. Staff service was also excellent although even they could not solve the problem of no wifi (due to inability of provider to provide a password). Hotel chosen on wifi availability as well as ample parking which was unfortunately temporarily not available at... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst dropping our daughter off at the University. Rooms were clean although bathrooms had mould on ceilings, could do with a paint. Breakfast was continental, but full English was available for £6.99.First morning we had the continental, was pastries, toast , cereals muffins etc. Second morning thought I might have the English breakfast,...

We stayed two nights here while visiting friends and attractions. Great location. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable although the bed was a bit on the lumpy for us. Perhaps they need to follow the Premier Inn lead and upgrade the sleep experience. Continental breakfast offering was adequate but seems to have reduced since our stays... More

Having stayed here a number of times we knew what to expect. A friendly welcome, excellent room and bathroom plus 2 good nights sleep. Would highly recommend for a stop over on the way to the ferries or eurotunnel or to use as a base to visit Canterbury & Kent's many attractions.

We stayed at the Old Gate Inn / Innkeepers Lodge for a weekend stay whilst visiting family. The Inn is easy to find, not far from the A2, and even though we arrived quite late on a Friday evening (just after 10pm, but check-in is to 11pm) they were just as welcoming as if we arrived at any time. We... More

We stayed for 2 nights, and the price was ok for what it is. The room was comfortable enough, but looked like it could do with a bit of a care. The paint on the windows was coming off, so just a few little things would improve the standard. There is a free breakfast, but don't get too excited. It... More
