We stayed at the Holiday Inn Ramsgate the night before an early ferry to Oostende. For that reason we arrived late and checked out early. The hotel is on the main road into Ramsgate, right on the edge of the air field. If you aren't using the ferry or airport, there isn't much else in the area to see. The hotel is a bit in the middle of nowhere, except the petrol station nextdoor and the area is not particularly picturesque.
Our room was newly renovated, very clean and comfortable. A little basic but miles better than Travelodge or Premier Inn. There was a little road noise with the window open and the air conditioning unit was a little noisy to have on all night. The hotel is on the flight path for the airport. I found this out just as I fell asleep when I though a plane was about to land on the hotel roof! However, after about 22:30 there were no more planes, all quiet on that front. We had lovely comfortable, fresh beds and a good night's sleep.
I am really impressed by the Holiday Inn Express concept. You do seem to get better quality and value for money than the other leading budget brands. For that reason I will tray and use HIE more often in the future.
