This was excellent value for money for B&B. Rooms spotless and a nice size with two large twins and a free paper. They do an "express breakfast" and we found more than enough to choose from.They also do evening snacks and have a free hot line for ordering in take-aways. The reception hold menus for a variety of local restaurants.... More

Ideally placed for the euro tunnel-it's literally 5 minds drive to the check in point. Our room was small but functional, clean and warm enough. Taff on the front desk was very welcoming and extremely helpful. Breakfast was a bit naff but filed a gap before we got on the train. Wood definitely use it again.

As others have said this hotel is very close to the Shuttle entrance (around 3 miles and 5 - 10 minutes). We stayed on the way to France and then again when we returned. First room was warm enough, second one we had to ask reception to turn on the heating. Breakfast OK - nothing grand. We ate here in... More

We stopped here on Christmas night ready to cross the tunnel on Boxing day morning. Ideal location. The rooms were very spacious, two double beds with plenty of floor space. Tea and coffee facilities and bathroom facilities. Beds were very comfy. Plenty of breakfast, good choice and a nice early start if you need it.

This is a standard Holiday Inn Express offering. Clean, simple and inexpensive. Room was reasonably comfortable - just don't expect anything extra. Breakfast was reasonable good with a decent range and quality was good. The small bar area is sterile and without atmosphere. The hotel is a 5 minute drive to the Eurotunnel terminal - that's the selling point.

We arrived late and we just managed to find a parking space, the check in was very quick but when we got into the room it was freezing cold we immediately turned the heating up, even by the time we had left in the morning it was still cold. The room itself is fine, basic but does exactly what you... More

Part of the chain (fairly obviously given its name) and probably exactly what you'd expect. The rooms are all of a kind and comfortable and clean. The en-suite facilities (shower, washbasin, toilet) are modern and work well. The door can be used to close off all the facilities or just the toilet - useful if two of you are busy... More

We arrived very late and there was no parking spaces left, so we had to make up our own parking space - thats fair enough I guess and not the hotel's fault. The room was incredibly basic and dated. We were at the hotel for no more than 6-7 hours due to an early train the next day but the... More

we stayed here for one night before getting an crossing. The hotel location is perfect for the tunnel and not to far away from the ferries. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful.
