Great if you are about to hop on or off the Chunnel as it's minutes away . Dogs are warmly welcomed - such a relief to find pet friendly. Clean modern and basic accommodation and good brekkie selection. Only thing I can fault is powdered milk in the coffee machine

Great hotel, excellent staff, rooms are spacious and comfortable, bar on the premises, breakfast not a massive choice but enough to see you on your travels, all in all good value for money. Highly recommended.

We wanted to be close to the Channel tunnel so that we could make an early start the next day. Our room was spacious and clean. The staff were friendly, welcoming and couldn't be more helpful. As soon as I mentioned a noisy fan outside our window, Room 119, it was switched off allowing us to have quiet and a... More

Four of us stayed for one night after arriving back from France. The closeness of the hotel to the Eurotunnel is extremely convenient and it was easy to find. There was plenty of parking in a well lit car park. The reception staff were very pleasant and efficient. The room was a good size and the bathroom was perfectly satisfactory.... More

Well slight confusion here - we booked two double rooms in May this year at what was supposed to be a discounted rate as we was attending a wedding at The Old Kent Barn in November. I rang to confirm my booking a day before the wedding but I also noticed that the rates were cheaper on the website, so... More

We stayed here on our wedding night just so we could be with all our guests one more night as they'd travelled so far to see us get married. Didn't expect much but got even less than we'd hoped for. Staff were abrupt and rude to my husband and best man on the wedding morning when they dropped their cars... More

The hotel was easy to find – marked by signs – right off the M20, and the street where the hotel is located is a dead end, so there is not much traffic. Upon arrival, we were pleased to find that housekeeping, knowing there were three guests staying in the room, had set out a third set of towels, and... More
