“Good for a stopover”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for one night as I had a conference in Ashford the next day. I arrived around 10:30pm so did not try the restaurant. The room and bathroom were both spacious and clean. Plenty of sockets for charging electrical devices. Very quiet which led to a good nights sleep. Breakfast was good in the morning. Would stay here again if in Ashford.

First the good points. The room was excellent, the bathroom larger than usually found in this kind of hotel. The air-conditioning was both effective and silent. The staff were all friendly and helpful. However: we, like most of the clientele I suspect, were overnighting before taking the Chunnel the following morning and, having driven all day, were tired, hungry and thirsty and not amused to be told we couldn't eat for another 90 minutes because they had a wedding reception. Nor did we want to drink in the bar amongst the wreckage of the wedding party. I realise that in these difficult times companies have to make money where they can, but I feel that a hostelry situated close to the Chunnel and ports should ensure they can always provide food and drink for travellers

Like most people this was a stopover prior to using the tunnel. Comfortable and clean. Ate in the harvester across the road because of unappetising vegetarian options. Room was good plenty of space and nice bathroom. Staff were fine.

My family and I had a comfortable night in our hotel room. There were enough electrical plugs to charge our cellphones and IPAD. The room had a good sized closet and bathroom. In addition, it was nice to have a full counter space in the bathroom, which is standard in North American hotels, but rare in England. The air conditioning cooled the room to a perfect temperature for sleeping.

For dinner, we ate in the hotel's dining room, which was a good choice. The curried lamb was especially tasty.

This is an excellent place to overnight before venturing under the Channel. We had a long journey from the North and a longer one on the French side so this stopover was ideal in location,comfort,good value and a good breakfast.

Shame that wi fi is not free - most budget hotels we encountered offered a free service,which is very useful for keeping in touch.

The breakfast was very good but staff need to keep the hot food bar properly provisioned .

If booked in advance the room rate can be substantially reduced to a reasonable budget price.

Reception staff were very efficient and welcoming.

The Harvester opposite provided a better value and more varied alternative to the in house restaurant

Decided to stay here again, and 2nd time around was definitely an improvement. Perhaps the 1st time the loud wedding party helped with my negative review, this time around a coach of elderly europeans made for quieter guests. Also the hotel is now offering a meal deal, which price wise worked out very good. Of the course the breakfast is still great and can't complain about the room, clean and comfortable. Have booked to stay again.

Very poor restaurant although the breakfast was fine. Internet was exorbitant at 19.99 per day.the pillows on the bed said you could ask for feather etc but when we inquired that option did not exist.
