We stayed here on the 30th June for 1 night before we headed to France. We arrived late and the check in was great. Got into our room and the beds weren't very comfy but it was ok, we just wanted to sleep. In the morning we both had a shower and the plug had been shoved into the plug... More

We stayed here overnight on our way to France via tunnel. We arrived about 8pm and our welcome was great. When we said that we were leaving about 4am the next morning the lady who checked us in was so helpful. She arranged an early call for us and a packed breakfast to take away. They couldn't of been more... More

The hotel is good, though a little tired that is not disguised by a coat of paint. However, the staff make up for it, attentive and welcoming doing theh best they can to make the stay enjoyable, having spent 16 nights over the last 3 weeks staying here it is worth it.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times but I am done with it now. I used to like it but it has got worse over each of my recent stays. I am spire elite and in some hotels you are made to feel welcome, here not so much. I got to my room and it was boiling, I had... More

Nothing special to mention at this hotel. Check in efficient but no great welcome Accessible rooms are a long walk from reception and even further from bar/ restaurant so if like us you have difficulty walking you may struggle, bathroom is with bath and a low shower over bath Service in restaurant exceptionally slow and several main items not available

It started on a down note and rapidly got worse from there. The room we had was not as pictured on the management photo's. The room was grubby, the carpets and furniture threadbare and the "refurbished" bathroom was already growing mildew on the ceiling. With the exception of the girl on checkout ( and she was new to her job... More

There is nothing really special about this hotel. The staff on reception are nice but the restaurant staff can be slightly unwelcoming. As a large group that stayed here we experienced slow food service (sometimes for dinner longer than 2 hours!) and the food was of below average quality when it did arrive! The room was clean and sufficient, so... More

We've stated here several times before so we know the location is great for the eurotunnel and it's not expensive. As an IHG member I used points so my stay was free. When we checked in we were given an upstairs room and as this stay was part of a longer trip we had hefty luggage to carry upstairs. We... More

I have stayed here many times in the last 8 years, but last time was awful. Arrived late evening and went to my room. Rather frosty welcome considering I am a Spire Elite member.
