“You will not be disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

First time we have stayed at a Holiday Inn express. We were not disappointed .
On arrival the receptionist made us feel really welcome. She chatted and made the booking in process a pleasant experience.
The rooms are clean and roomy.
The breakfast is included in the price of the of your stay.Eat as much as you want for breakfast, I just have to add the coffee comes out of a machine which I was very disappointed in. My husband raved about the quality of the sausages and he should know he eats sausage 3 times a week.
You really must stay at this Holiday Inn I was impressed.

Room Tip: Try to ask for one that does not face the A299

Dear Belinda D
It is truly great to hear we have fulfilled the criteria of a fellow sausage conciser. Please pass on my thanks and best wishes to your husband. I look forward to seeing you both again.

We like Holiday Inns because of the consistent standard of cleanliness and comfort plus the good value. This extended and adapted art deco style building is one of the best that we've tried so far. The staff were very helpful, there was lots of lovely hot water for the shower and a comfortable and large breakfast lounge/ bar area to relax in . The price for a double room for two was very reasonable with a free hot breakfast and free WiFi access in both communal areas and in the room. The breakfast was self service and standard for this type of hotel with trays of sausages, scrambled egg, baked beans plus do it yourself toast. However it was all hot and as trays started to become depleted they were quickly replaced.The Danish pastries were also rather good. You can get ice for your fruit juice from the very effective ice maker located by the lifts; also good for creating iced water for your room. The hotel doesn't do an evening meal or lunch but there is a vending machine for soft drinks and snacks. There is a McDonald's immediately opposite the hotel and a pub restaurant located within the nearby Premier Inn but if eating locally it might be better to go the mile or so into into Minster village with its beautiful ancient church plus two pubs, fish and chip shop and Indian restaurant. There is lots of parking space at the hotel and the location is ideal for exploring the lovely north eastern coast of Kent from Whitstable right round to Deal. Canterbury is less than half an hour away and we went to Dover for the ferry in a comfortable 30 minutes but were advised to plan for 45 just in case of hold ups. Manston airport is opposite the hotel but sadly this is shortly due to close. We couldn't see everything that we wanted to in just three days so we will be going back.

An ideal stay for a stop over in a location that suited our travel arrangements
Had an enjoyable cooked breakfast,which accommodated 15 of us by pushing tables together. Not sure if they did lunch or dinner as neither were required
Some very helpful friendly staff

After an absence of 3 years it was a pleasure to be here again for a week in April in this comfortable and welcoming hotel, where the staff, as ever, were friendly, welcoming and helpful,
We hope it will not be too long before we are here again.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for the bank holiday weekend and overall I was definitely happy with my stay, the room was a good size, the beds were comfortable and the tv channels were a bit limited but we didn’t spend much time watching it. The breakfast was good and had a nice variety, the staff I encountered were all very friendly and helpful. My only fault with the hotel is the fact they don’t do dinner on the weekend but there is a nice restaurant across the road built in to the Premier Inn.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to people as long as they don’t mind going out for dinner.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing away from the road as it's much quieter and you get a great view

Enjoyed an excellent stay at the Holiday Inn. All staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome. Rooms were clean and quiet. Breakfast was included in the price of our stay offering a great selection and hot food. Check out was swift and efficient. How stay was extremely good value and the staff were all very helpful. I will be using Holiday Inn's again.

Room Tip: Request aroom at the rear of the building to avoid any noise from the road.

We arrived at this hotel at 11 pm without any previous booking after our Eurotunnel train got badly delayed. The staff was very friendly and they organised the room for us very quickly. Parking is free, the room is clean, this hotel really dug us out of hole! The hotel was quiet and clean. The breakfast was nothing to write home about, but they offer a take away tea or coffee, which we really appreciated.
Great value for money.
