Stayed here last weekend with my husband and 2 friends. Chose it because they allowed dogs in the room and our friends have 2 dogs. Having previously read reviews we expected to be staying in a giant, crumbling kennel!! We were delighted to be booked in by a lovely friendly receptionist (who spoke perfect English, like all the staff we encountered). We booked 2 twin bed rooms and even our friends room which was going to accomodate the dogs (the pets, not our friends), was spotless. Rooms had crisp white bedlinen, a modern bathroom with fluffy towels and even complimentary toiletries. OK, no flat screen TV and no satellite TV but is that really an issue whilst away from home?. I am sure everyone has Sky plussed everything anyway! Meals were buffet style so you helped yourself to whatever you fancied, with plenty of choices to suit everyone and eat as much as you wanted - the man in front of me managed 3 pork chops at once (now known to us as Mr. threechops). I am diabetic so had to refuse the selection of gateaux and cheescakes on offer but the waiter very kindly came back with cheese and biscuits just for me - another example of how helpful they all were. Breakfast was delicious with a choice of cereal, toast, jams, yoghurts, eggs, scrambled or fried, bacon, mushrooms, hash browns, black pudding, sausages, tomatoes, unlimited tea and coffee etc etc. Fantastic value for money all round. Yes, parking is an issue as car park is way too small for hotel and spaces are limited, but parking is an issue wherever you go these days. We also had the 99p bar from 6-9pm which meant all drinks were 99p, including spirits. Considering we only paid £59 per person for the entire weekend, it was an absolute bargain. My advice - get a cheap deal from UK.Breakaways.co.uk website and ignore the odd bit of worn carpet - life is too short. Have just booked another weekend away in May at the Britannia Folkestone and we are going to ignore the reviews for that one as well. Watch this space!!.
