we chose this hotel for its proximity to the chanel tunnel. its a pretty looking place.
there is no parking at the hotel which means you have to park in back streets.
as you apporach the hotel you are greeted with all the smokers standing outside which is not really welcoming.
the hotel reception staff are very friendly and welcoming but the hotel is not just old fashioned with a serious of long corridors in 'rabbit warren' style but is very worn and musty in places.
the lift is tiny, noisy and very slow but the only option to walk up 4 large flights with heavy bags.
we had asked for an early breakfast due to us catching the train, all they could offer was a continental room service at additional charge. as we had travelled a long way we wanted to eat in the bar but not only were the chairs quite stained they smelt quite bad.
the rooms thelmselves, although small, were clean and the bathroom was spotless.
we thought by booking a Best Western we would get better than being offered at a corporate style premier inn, but i now wish we had stayed at one of the others as it was just too expensive for what we got. the hotel advertises WiFi but we just couldn't get connected, when we tried to phone reception they didn't answer the phone. so we gave up.
we would not return as there were just too many negatives.
