We stayed overnight ahead of taking the Euro Tunnel the following morning. The hotel's location is excellent for this, only 15 minutes drive to the terminal.
The hotel is under-going a major renovation (we were not aware of this when we booked).
The Reception and Bar area were pleasant enough but the corridors and our room were from a by-gone era - somewhat like visiting an elderly aunt's house.
There were two other plus points - the swimming pool and spa area were great to use after a long drive and more importantly, the staff - young, enthusiastic and very professional, especially in the Bar, where we ate our evening meal.
We had an excellently priced 'room-only' rate - preferring a late breakfast in France.
