This was a lovely place to stay on our driving trip around Kent & Sussex. Large rooms, air conditioning and a lovely bathroom. Hotel was very clean.This is something taken for granted in many countries but do not always get in older style British rooms. The only improvement would be to have a fridge in the room.

I stayed here with my family for two nights and found the whole experience a complete letdown. Cold rooms, noisy (could hear walking upstairs as we were on the ground floor and doors slamming the whole of the first night) and poor service from staff, with the exception of three staff members who were obviously well-trained. We could not highlight... More

Well placed for a stop over prior to getting the eurotunnel. Lovely room clean as you would expect with H Inn. Staff friendly. Price ok. Had breakfast in France following morning as was much cheaper than hotel expected. Would recommend this hotel.

My family have used this hotel on a number of occasions, as we visit France a great deal and the Hotel is close to the Channel Tunnel and Dover. The room was comfortable, but my main issue is with dinner. We usually pay up front for the set menu, which we did on this occasion. However, on arrival at the... More

Location wise if you need to be in Ashford area it's quite well situated. We stop here en route to the port of Dover. However in comparison with the standards set by other budget chain hotels, this one is a tad tired, with dark corridors and communal areas. The room itself was considerably better but still a little worn. We... More

We got married here a year ago. Leading up to our anniversary I was working in the Middle East so wasn't able to do anything other than online.

Stopped overnight en route to early morning eurotunnel crossing. However the noise from a wedding party kept me awake until the small hours! I'm all for people enjoying themselves but it was a strange mix - early risers/late night revellers. May as well have kipped in the car, won't be back.

Dear Collywobble1990, Thank you for your review. Please accept my sincere apologies that noise from the wedding kept you awake. My staff would be more than happy to have your room moved to further down the hotel or to look for ways at reducing the noise. I do hope that you will change your mind and return in the future....

As a very regular business user of holiday inns I've become accustomed to expecting a good quality of service throughout my stay. Whilst the staff were helpful and the room was clean and well presented, the food in the restaurant was not great. We travel to France so use this hotel as a stop off point before we cross on...

Room was clean but shower tray old and shabby . staff were nice and polite but we didn't realise breakfast was not included. They wanted to charge 14.95 for buffet breakfast so we declined as we thought this was a total rip off considering the room was 105 pounds! !!!
