Helpful and courteous staff. Cleanliness Good food.
Convenience to Dover Ferry.
Hotel was very hard to find behind the garage. We traveled up and down the A2 before we found it.It needs a sign up on the road before the garage not straight after.it was very annoying having to keep going back and forth.
Being asked any specials requirements.
My gluten free requests where ignored ! So no gluten free sausage for breakfast and no dessert night before as no bananas.
Comfortable clean room. Good food. Good value. Convenient for Folkestone and a trip into Canterbury.
The derelict building near the entrance.
Food was good
Could t log on to wifi
Spacious accommodation with every facility. Plenty of car parking room.
Needed more tea/milk/sugar supplies in room - only enough for one! Food could have been more varied.
Room clean, bed ok, just a shower - but a good one. Breakfast mediocre. Straight beside A2 so very convenient which is probably why it's well used and in places looking tired e.g. Threadbare carpets in places. Oh, and parking is good.
In a place where there's no mobile phone signal and no 3G. So on a business trip I felt quite isolated. Hotel wifi thus oversubscribed and very slow.
1.Staff & Cleanliness of Hotel. 2. Convienent for Canterbury. 3. Reasonable choice of Main Course Dinners - staff willing to go that little bit extra to please customers.
1. Hotel is difficult to access from Northbound side of A2. 2. Some rooms suffer from Traffic noise (we asked to change rooms - staff very accommodating). 3. The size of some Desert portions (Cheesecake) were more suitable for mousetrap bait.
Staff were very friendly and helpful
Toilet was dirty with faecal staines under seat. Bed sheets were stained. Cobwebs in the extractor fan in bathroom.
Good position ideal for trip to Canterbury. Good clean comfortable. Nice to get breakfast at this price.
clean and comfortable room friendly personel
restaurant and bar
The location was excellent for our short drive to the port of Dover for ferry crossing to France. Also a excellent breakfast.
Very close to Dover ferries
This the 2nd HIE I have stopped in that is hidden away behind a petrol station on a busy dual carriageway with very poor signage for thr hotel.
At night the noise from mechanical services plant (above the ceiling/roof?) was extremely intrusive. The plant also turned on and off which added to the annoyance. The hotel need to get this checked out!
Staff on evening we booked in were as mentioned 1st Class, although they were only two, working reception, bar and restaurant and the fact a large party had just booked into restaurant they had time to help everyone that came into hotel to use facilities including ourselves, They were a credit to the hotel, and group.
The internet connection was a bit slow.
The whole experience from Arriva to departure.
Not having bacon on the breakfast buffet.
It was all we hoped for and needed.
Arriving from the direction of Canterbury, we found the hotel very hard to find.
Very easy onward journey to Calais, plus close to Canterbury.
I cannot praise the staff highly enough neither can I fault anything about our stay. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend to business colleagues as well as family/friends who might be passing through.
Location to destination Comfortable bed
Traffic noise Guest noise through bedroom wall Older building /facilities Smell in bedroom of plugged in airfreshner Breakfast not nearly as good as other Hoilday Inn experiences
Room nice and comfortable.
Prices in restaurant were terrible for example a small bottle of lemonade (and I mean a small bottle) was £1 79 which I think was disgusting. Our bill for evening was £50.00 for one starter and two main and a couple drinks. Think prices should be brought down especially when some people have children and they want a soft drink.
The food in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced. Comfortable beds. Reasonably priced hotel compared to hotels in Dover.
The noise from the motorway was very loud all night.
