Stayed here specifically to get an early start on the Tunnel and a road trip around Europe.Staff pleasant enough,room was clean and tidy.We booked a room for three so the third bed was a campbed type affair, no frills but better than sleeping on the floor.Decent size car park although not very well lit as I recall.Car Park Might be...

Ideally situated as a base prior to a channel tunnel crossing. In previous years we have used the Travelodge at Ashford but found this to be more to our liking in all respects. Our twin bedded room was clean and comfortable with modern equipment and facilities. A large and efficient shower, good quality towels and the usual hospitality tray all... More

Excellent location for channel tunnel. Beds and pillows extremely hard so therefore experienced very little sleep. when we arrived we were told restaurant was closed "due to family crisis". We were given a list of restaurants in the area which we were very grateful for. However, most of them were closed whether that was because it was a Sunday or... More

I have stayed here before as I usually use this place when I visit my home town but this time the food was terrible offered at breakfast. The room was great, free wifi and all you needed for a transit hotel. Staff were friendly and efficient. I cannot comment on evening food as did not eat there but breakfast is... More

Stayed for only one night prior to early tunnel crossing. Lovely welcome, comfortable bed and perfectly adequate room. Reasonably priced drinks in the bar during the evening with friendly chatty staff. Breakfast included and served early enough even though we were leaving at 6.30am.As well as close proximity to tunnel it is not far from Folkestone town and harbour where... More

This is probably the nearest hotel to the channel tunnel terminal. It's basic but perfectly adequate for an overnight stay before travelling to France or beyond. The staff were very welcoming and cheerful and there is lots of free parking available. Breakfast was OK, the room was OK; basic but everything you would need is provided and it was clean,... More

Visited for 1 night prior to catching the eurotunnel with family. Although I wouldn't want to stop for a week it does what it says on the tin!! Clean, tidy and convenient. I sometimes wonder what people expect from a budget hotel. I booked over a month before and got the room for £68 so some other reviewers seem to... More
