We stayed here on our way to Dover ferry port with our dog. The room was large with patio doors/windows opening onto a paved area with seating overlooking a pretty lake, with coots and moorhens paddling around. We did not eat dinner at the hotel, but the breakfast was good and the staff very attentive. Yes, it was noisy at... More

Stayed here for only one night but will book again next time I'm in the area. Only a minute drive from the motorway exit this hotel provides great value for money. Slightly dated but not in a stuffy tatty way more in a retro kind of way. Although the reception was a hive of activity I was booked in in... More

Stopped here for one night had a room over looking the lake very comfortable if a bit stuck in the 1970s. Staff were lovely , breakfast was ok because of the size of the place it was all pre cooked . Looked like it would be a nice place for a wedding.

We booked a room in September for one night not expecting much as it was quite cheap. The room was quite good and the breakfast was good. The ad is a bit misleading though as you cannot access the area that is on pictures unless you book a premium ground floor room. We were quite happy with it though as... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night while attending a wedding. The staff were incredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The bar was well priced and well stocked and the meal with the wedding was very good. The breakfast wasn't bad at all and was included in the cost of the room. Perhaps there could... More
