4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

First of all due to Hiltons Loyalty scheme which other chains don't do, I took a free nights stay. And so perhaps I should not give a negative description. But, probably because I have given some negative reviews I had a warning letter on arrival.'You must give us opportunity to put any problem right' Well it wouldn't stop me if... More

Like probably most of their clientele, we were overnight guests before using the tunnel the next day so had no expectations that this would be a luxurious stay. It is absolutely fine however, for the price paid and the convenience of being so close to the tunnel. The shower had a bit of mould in it, the (double) bed is... More

Stayed one night before the crossing to France on the tunnel. The rooms were clean and basic but did the job. The car park was well lit for expensive cars. the service was good. Breakfast was basic but fine.

This hotel is a short distance from the town centre, basic & clean what you'd expect a Holiday Inn Express to be. Small bar & restaurant, basic but adequate breakfast. Used for night before Euro tunnel, workmen and business stop overs. One night is fine.

Simple but clean room and en-suite then only a short drive to the tunnel or Dover docks. The food was basic and as though they recognise this, staff pointed out both take out and eat-in restaurants nearby. Judging by the number of people checking in, busy car park and crowded bar/eating area it seems Holiday Inn Express are meeting a... More

Travelling with a dog was no problem at this holiday inn. I've stayed in quite a few and this was the most pleasant. The staff were great and very friendly and the hotel was in very good order. Bit too hot at night and a bit of black mould in the shower which should be dealt with, but all in... More

Food poor, breakfast embarrassing for a BB - snack evening meals, we went to excellent Gurkha within walking distance, walk to Tesco for your breakfast! Room & Service fine - clean tidy, we had ground floor room, and passed rooms for those with difficulty accessing others

Could not fault my night stay here at all, great simple check in, clean comfortable room, enough towels, nice shower, comfortable bed, breakfast included, easy check out! What more could you want? If I had to pick at anything at all it would be that there wasn't any plugs at the side of the bed, but lucky for me I've... More

Stayed here on overnight stopover from returning on late night Eurotunnel. Arrived much later than expected due to tunnel delays. Night porter waiting for us and very pleasant. Nice comfortable room and good breakfast. All in all good experience.

The location so close to the Tunnel is everything. Very clean, attentive and friendly staff, we did not eat in the restaurant, but the menu looked attractive and fairly priced. Rather expensive, but location made it value for money.
