There was a trip to Kent on schedule, accompanied by my son this time. Arrival by KLM ex Amsterdam to Manston in the late morning. A rental car was secured and perfectly ontime prepared at the airport. The hotel is just at the other side of the runway, not more than 5 to 10 minutes to drive and close to no chance to miss it. And also no way to stay here without a car.
A room on the upper level was requested and also the information was send with the possible early Check-In.
What about the location?. Ramsgate and the sea straight ahead, one side for Dover and the cliffs, the other side for Canterbury and the cathedral.
Parking is free and there is also a gas station with shop and a fast food chain directly beside.
Well, back to the hotel, a nice welcome from the young woman at the desk.
The upper floor request was in the system, but the dedicated room was not ready, 12.00 am was finally fixed and ok for us.
The room spacious, a large bed, the bathroom with a bathtub/shower combination.
Hot water available as soon as you switch it on.
Everything clean and also important, no noise from the neighbouring rooms, ok we had the last room on the floor, good for a calm night.
Is it only me or what about the towels?. The same again like the last hotel visit last week, only one set of towels in the room. Swiftly and really friendly fixed by the nice senior receptionist later in the evening just without a minute to wait. Now we had more towels than we really need!.
Breakfast is available from 07.00 am, cereals, croissants, toast, eggs, juices and several kind of tea bags. More than expected from my point of view.
Also no time to wait during Check-Out the late next morning for the flights back to Amsterdam and further by KLM.
The usual question for the downsides?:
Well, free wifi should be the norm these days, important especially on a biz trip.
Only the first 30 minutes by day are free, more is available for 3.00 pounds.
