“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

We arrived at this hotel at 11 pm without any previous booking after our Eurotunnel train got badly delayed. The staff was very friendly and they organised the room for us very quickly. Parking is free, the room is clean, this hotel really dug us out of hole! The hotel was quiet and clean. The breakfast was nothing to write home about, but they offer a take away tea or coffee, which we really appreciated.
Great value for money.

I arrived in Ramsgate at 10.30 and before 12.30 two people (locals) had said how unlucky I was for booking here. By 7.00 I had heard this comment once more.
Well I can say my room was fine, its never going to win an award from homes and gardens, but it was clean, had a kettle and I could not heard any traffic noise.

Dear Ian E
Thank you for leaving feedback. I am not sure who you encountered locally however it is my understanding the hotel is regarded well by the community both as a location to stay and as a result of our supporting many local charities and initiatives. Best wishes David GM

We had a very pleasant one night stay as we were attending a funeral at Thanet crematorium the hotel is quite modern and the main entrance reception area was very nice and roomy the staff at front desk very helpful and one of the staff even came from near where we live so we had a nice chat, as for the room it was on the back which was better for us as it is lot quieter the front of hotel is next to busy large roundabout and main roads, the room was basic and small but comfortable, the breakfast was again very basic but just the job, the only concern would be the area where get the actual the breakfast from was quiet small and must be difficult at busy times to get what you need without making several trips to the breakfast counters, the room had nice shower and was very clean bathroom even had blue night time lights.
Parking was good with blue badge parking outside front of hotel we even visited the RAF museum and there are some local walks, there is a Inn type eatery across the road but we thought it looked a little expensive for what they were serving, it may be very nice.
Overall this Holiday Express was very comfortable although if staying for more than 2 nights the small rooms could feel clausatophobic but it was good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for room on rear of hotel as front is noisy due to roundabout and main roads.

We found the hotel to be comfortable, clean and quiet. Our rooms were a good size and very peaceful. Not a lot of storage space, so could be tricky if you're staying for more than a few days. Shower good, but no bath. Breakfast limited but adequate and fresh. Plenty of parking and location perfect for the touring we were doing. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: We stayed on the side away from the road and found it lovely and quiet.

We choose to stay here for the value on money as it was the cheapest in town, smart looking hotel room was adequate not masses of room but ok, there was air conditioning which was good because the room was very hot in March The staff were very friendly and welcoming. But the biggest let down was the breakfast, toast was good, the let down was the cooked breakfast the egg was wet and appeared to be powered eggs and the other options was beans and sausage just found to very random. We would have to think about these things before staying again

Thank you for your review. I am afraid our breakfast range is a brand standard. It is described as an enhanced continental. I look forward to seeing you again

One of the reason we choose this particular hotel was the fact that the Holiday Inn website sates: "During the week, enjoy a hearty 3-course dinner, choosing from our tasty menu of international favourites." However, no evening meals were available!

That said the rest of the hotel lived up to the normal budget hotel standards and the Breakfasts were hot and good and plentiful.

Room was OK and a problem with the bath room was resolved by the maintenace man quickly and without any fuss - well done to him and he deserves a merit award.

Staff were freindly and reception helped out with a few bits and peices we had left behind.

It is ideally placed for touring Thanet and Ramsgate and Pegwell Bay were worth the visit.

This hotel is very convenient for the whole of Thanet, and is remarkable value compared to others in the seaside towns. Staff are friendly, rooms comfy, self service breakfast good, i will certainly stay again when visiting family in the area and recommend to friends.
