We stayed here for just one night as we were attending a local wedding. The staff were extremely friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Considering how close the hotel is to the motorway we didn't hear any noise at all. There was a good food selection at breakfast. The on site car park has plenty of parking spaces.... More

This is the second occasion that we've used this hotel whilst visiting the War and Peace Revival show. Once again we were not disappointed and our 5 night stay was as enjoyable as the first time round. Staying during what has turned out to be the hottest period of the year (2014) to date can have its drawbacks, however, the... More

Stopped here on the way to Dover. Access not bad from the M20. The room was good, the air conditioning worked well to keep us cool, the bathroom had a good shower. The reason that I score lower thab I would though is because of the WiFi cost. This is 2014, you can get free WiFi almost everywhere, come on... More

We had a one night stop over after a long journey from France. Pleasantly surprised by the room, clean, very comfortable and spacious. Our only problem was the room (134) was clearly a disabled room, ( neither myself or my husband are disabled) and having a shower was difficult as the shower on reached to shoulder height, my husband in...

I stayed here for one night as I had a conference in Ashford the next day. I arrived around 10:30pm so did not try the restaurant. The room and bathroom were both spacious and clean. Plenty of sockets for charging electrical devices. Very quiet which led to a good nights sleep. Breakfast was good in the morning. Would stay here... More

First the good points. The room was excellent, the bathroom larger than usually found in this kind of hotel. The air-conditioning was both effective and silent. The staff were all friendly and helpful. However: we, like most of the clientele I suspect, were overnighting before taking the Chunnel the following morning and, having driven all day, were tired, hungry and... More

Like most people this was a stopover prior to using the tunnel. Comfortable and clean. Ate in the harvester across the road because of unappetising vegetarian options. Room was good plenty of space and nice bathroom. Staff were fine.

My family and I had a comfortable night in our hotel room. There were enough electrical plugs to charge our cellphones and IPAD. The room had a good sized closet and bathroom. In addition, it was nice to have a full counter space in the bathroom, which is standard in North American hotels, but rare in England. The air conditioning... More

This is an excellent place to overnight before venturing under the Channel. We had a long journey from the North and a longer one on the French side so this stopover was ideal in location,comfort,good value and a good breakfast. Shame that wi fi is not free - most budget hotels we encountered offered a free service,which is very useful... More

Decided to stay here again, and 2nd time around was definitely an improvement. Perhaps the 1st time the loud wedding party helped with my negative review, this time around a coach of elderly europeans made for quieter guests. Also the hotel is now offering a meal deal, which price wise worked out very good. Of the course the breakfast is... More
