“Great stopover hotel”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Stayed here as a stopover on the way back from the continent at Easter.
Easy to get to, close to the motorway. There was plenty of free parking available. Room was spacious, clean and tidy. Ours overlooked the car park and hence the main road, but we didn't hear any road noise

We ate in the Hop Picker pub next door. I think this is part of the hotel group due to the same wines on the menu. Had a very nice meal and finished our wine sat in front of an open fire which was great with the near freezing temperature outside.
Service was good and staff friendly.
There is a Beefeater a half a mile down the road, which you'll drive past coming from the M20, if you fancied that instead of eating at the hotel or Hop Picker.

Had a great stay and would definately use the hotel again.

Thank you for taking the time to write your kind review. I am pleased that you found your room to be spacious, clean and tidy. I see that your room overlooked the carpark and main road but yet you didn't hear any noise. It was good to read that you also ate in our Hop Pickers Pub and had a very nice meal finishing off by sitting in the open log fire. Good to see that you had a great stay and would definately use the hotel again. Hopefully I will be able to welcome you back in the near future

stayed there one night before going on the ferry to France and it was perfect. Reading the reviews I had been concerned about road noise but there was none. Service was perfect and breakfast the usual Holiday inn selection.

As always at this hotel, the staff were good, the quality breakfast plentiful.
However, the room was something of a letdown. It looked generally tired, with a small TV for the size of the room, & a blocked shower tray meant you showered ankle deep in water.
And the sleep quality...........a combination of a poor quality mattress & constant road noise resulted in the worst nights sleep I can remember. Certainly not good preparation for a long drive through France the following day. Good job the room had a choice of pillows, as the first one tried had a very sweaty smell about it.
The room rates are very reasonable, but I would suggest that there is a reason for this.
I have used this hotel many times in the past, however, not in the last couple of years. It certainly seems to have lost some of its former sparkle.

Room Tip: Definately try for a room at the quieter rear of the hotel

Dear reviewer, many thanks for taking the time to write your comments following your recent stay. I am pleased to hear that the staff were good and the quality of breakfast plentiful. I am however disappointed to read that the quality of sleep was poor and that the shower appeared to be blocked and I apologise most sincerely for this. I have asked my Maintenance Team to check the baths and Housekeeping the Mattress's. The pillow slips are changed daily but again Housekeeping are being extra careful. I am glad you found the room rates to be very reasonable which is probably why the hotel is normally so busy with repeat guests. Hopefully this has not put you off staying with us and that we can welcome you back soon like so many of our other guests.

Stayed here for one night in March 2013 on way to Dover, the room was large clean and had all the usual facilities that you would expect from this type of hotel.

Didnt eat at the hotel but had a drink at the bar which although small and virtually in the lobby was again clean and friendly as where all the staff during my stay.

We visited the Hop Pickers pub which is part of the hotel I believe, to be honest a bit bland and sterile and more of a restaurant than a pub, it had a tv showing the football, but this was in a really awkward place meaning that only people sat in three tables in front of it could see it properly.

The pub is a little bit of a trek from the motorway to be fair, either come off at the junction for Leeds Castle and then follow the A20 south, or come off at the Ashford turn off and then come back on yourself, either way easy to find, but its still very convenient for Dover, Ashford and the Tunnel, plenty of parking too.

My tip if you stay here and want a meal would be to head towards Maidstone on the A20 and about six miles up stop at Lenham, signposted on the left, the Red Lion pub in the village square was superb and probably served the best pub mean I have ever had, reasonable prices and well cooked food, dont have a starter though the portions were massive

Thank you for taking the time to write your review following your recent stay at The Holiday Inn Ashford North. I am glad that you found the room large and clean and that you found the staff friendly during your stay.

I am sorry that you found Hop Pickers Pub a little bland and sterile. It has been well received since we opened it for longer hours especially since putting in Sky Sports for the regulars that stay at the hotel giving them a more relaxed pub atmosphere which some prefer to the Hotel Lounge Bar feeling. Hopefully this will not put you off returning to The Holiday Inn Ashford North in the near future.
