This was our first stay at a holiday inn, the first thing we found was when you left junction 12 the signs to the hotel stopped so we carried on straight through cheriton, realising it wasn't up there we turned round to head up a road which we thought was a dead end but in fact the hotel was at...

The rooms were comfortable enough for basic stay before travelling on eurotunnel next day! Although can't say much for the noise, all we could hear was doors slamming from other guests and noise from rooms next to us! Being valentine's night you can imagine the kind of noise. Great staff, great location for eurotunnel, room ideal just shame about the... More

Stayed here with work staff are friendly and helpful! Room was clean and everything that we needed! Only thing that let it down was the breakfast in the morning it is a buffet breakfast but it's very small and not much choice! Beer also pretty expensive but like I said hotel is nice so you expect to pay a little... More

Simple, clean and ideal for a stopover. Arrived early morning and was greeted friendly and welcoming. Duty manager was very accommodating, and although it was way before check in time we received our room key. No room with a view but a quiet nights sleep.

Travelling on the channel tunnel we decided to stay at Holiday Inn Express. Very impressed with the welcome from the manager and female staff, shown to a basic, clean, room with comfortable bed and no traffic noise from the adjacent M20 just metres away. Next morning enjoyed the inclusive breakfast with hot or continental choices. Comfortable stay and good value... More

Decided to stay here before crossing the crossing the tunnel as an alternative to the over-priced Holiday Inn just over water in Calais. The First time I stayed here I didn't arrive until after 11pm and was away at 6am so hardly noticed the place to be honest. This time I arrived earlier and after a warm welcome and (as... More

We slept here because we came in late off the boat in Dover and the drive to London was to far for us to handle. We had no reservations but they still had a room ready for us at 01:00 and did a quik checkinn. The room was nice and standard and even had free wifi with a nice range.... More

Early channel crossing, so booked room for the night. Clean room, comfortable bed, good facilities. Friendly staff at reception and free wifi. Close to channel tunnel terminal. Perfect for what I needed. Definitely will book again when crossing again.
