Reviewed 27 October 2010

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night on my departure from Ramsgate to Oostende by the LD Lines Ferry. The staff on arrival in the evening were very helpful and even advised me of the Free wireless internet in the lounge area. The carpets in my room seemed a bit stained in areas, that was in room No.125. In the morning the breakfast area had very little hot food due to the high demand from other travellers and after waiting for sometime about 20 mins, I gave up and decided to seek hot food else where after checking out, since this would of been my last "English Breakfast" for some time since where I live Muesli seems to be the only option. I found a Tesco's Superstore not so far from the Hotel where a assistant called Shelly was really helpful in assisting to my needs for English breakfast items to take back home whilst shopping around the store after my Tesco's breakfast. The hotel has also a very good parking zone and there is also a petrol station across the road.

Not being accustomed to Holiday Inn Express properties, I was very surprised to find this property so friendly. Whether you are there for Business or Pleasure it has a lot to offer in both terms of activities nearby, family friendly, plus amenities like internet and business center. Breakfast is free but lacking in choices...

I stayed in this hotel for a couple of weeks, and they had great breakfast and free parking. Excellent staff as well.
great rooms, very clean.

I am going to stay here again and highly recommend it.

No wireless internet in rooms, thats the only drawback.

Stayed at this hotel for an overnight stay having booked on-line last minute through hotels.com.. Very convenient location, found very easily off main highway. Plenty of parking spaces, and polite reception staff made booking in easy smooth process.

We had smoking rooms, and although a slight smell of smoke in corridor, room was freshened and clean with all the amenities tv, hairdryer, reading lights etc.required. Bathroom was good size with shower and good lighting. Holiday inn have a policy to help out if you have forgotten a toiletry item, one of our party needed a toothbrush and so a call to reception and a new travel type one was supplied. Good holiday inn service.

Breakfast was good, with a wide choice of cereals, fruit, pastries, breads, etc., although was slightly disappointed that only scambled egg and bacon available as cooked items,and that no beans,mushrooms, sausage etc., so no full english. Liked that the tables and chairs were well placed with good spacing, so the dining area although busy and plenty of guests never felt cramped.

The hotel is ideal for a journey stopover or as a base for visiting Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate areas.
Will have no hesitation in booking to stay here again when next in area.

We stayed at the Holiday inn for a wedding ner by. It was a nice place to stay and an interesting building which has been done up to a very good standard by Holiday Inn. If you are having breakfast, make sure you get there early as the area that food is put out is not very big for the amount of people staying in the hotel. Apart from that the rooms were clean and pleasant, the stay was comfortable

We have just stayed 2 nights at this hotel and found it very comfortable with friendly and accommodating staff. The rooms are quite small but it was very well-priced and we only use a hotel for overnight accommodation. The breakfast was also very good. My only gripe was that the room was rather stuffy, despite having the window open and aircon on, but it was unseasonably warm for September!

Folks,

Normally I don't get impressed with the service too easily as I'm a fussy git. lol :-)
When I checked in the hotel on 17th September 2010 it was very quick and easy check in. We got settled in our room and found that the phone line wasn't working so upon request the hotel staff promptly sent the maintenance engineer within 2minutes and he suggested that its not an quick fix and will take at least an hour to fix it. so the lovely staff at the reception changed our room which was great.

The hotel is in the middle of no where but if you have a car you can always drive to near by towns, so we did and we went to Margate and we werent impressed, Margate needs a face lift a big time. as I do believe that Margate has the potential and I hope Govt. will do something for the people of Margate. Also another thing to visit is Shell Grotto in Margate, Its a must see if you are in the area. It is very beautiful place to visit.

so on Saturday morning we had our breakfast and it was very quiet so we had the whole breakfast area to ourself :-) very clean and tidy breakfast area I have to say. on the way back from breakfast I asked the hotel staff (it was a young lad who goes to university near High Wycombe and a young girl in black skirt) about the places to visit around the area and they have given plenty of information about the places to visit, best restaurants around the area and the most useful information Re: pubs and clubs which are in broadstairs town centre. I didnt' get chance to speak to this two staff members to say thank you for everything you've done during our stay.

On sunday morning the breakfast area was in chaos as the hotel was fully booked and everybody decided to have breakfast at 9am :-) and the fun begins, there weren't enough staff to clear tables, replanish things like bread slices, coffee mugs, drink glass, etc. but the staff members were doing their best they can to sort out things. In particular the two staff memebers I have mentioned earlier ( the young lad and the young girl in black skirt) were doing most of the running around and cleaning. so I would recommend to go to breakfast table early in the morning when hotel is fully booked. But don't let this put you off. Its like this everywhere you go. and specially for the price this hotel offers and the staff member's happy and helpful attitude towards the customers, you can't complain.

And finally there wasn't any croissants left and once again upon request the lovely staff members made us freshly baked croissants specially for us and delivered it to our table. Now where can you get a great service like that.

In a nutshell I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone and staff members couldn't be more helpful. They ware lovely people and if I'm ever in the area I'll definitely pop in to say hello and have a drink at the bar. :-)
