Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fwdlink Great Property for Walking
Nice little property that is great for a weekend getaway with some really nice walking trails directly adjacent the hotel. Don't overlook the hotel restaurant, the service and the food was superb, this was not ordinary hotel food and we experience it a lot in our travels. Breakfast was equally good and very fresh. The staff has a good focus on the customer which adds for a good touch. Decor could use modernizing and some maintenance, particularly in the rooms, however the mattress and bedding is fresh and clean, don't let this put you off.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Earthseasaga Careless staff and inedible breakfast
The breakfast was disgusting, I was left sat for twenty minutes (and walked past by staff many times) when wanting to order dinner, but was just ignored. I gave up and went elsewhere.
Internet prices are ridiculous, I will not pay a quarter of my room fee on internet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Louloubelle Very comfortable one night stop before travelling through Eurotunnel.
We were welcomed by professional reception staff, the beds were comfortable and it was good to be able to put on air-conditioning as the night was very hot.
The towels were nice, large and fluffy.
We had a good meal in the restaurant in the evening, however the dining room was rather hot in the morning for breakfast.
Overall I would not hesitate to return to this Holiday Inn and have stayed there on several occasions previously.

A really great night stay, clean comfortable rooms, breakfast excellent even providing Gluten free options. The Central Reservations teams messed up our booking which wasn't obvious until we checked in, but Kelly

Bathroom was repaired by amateurs - door to big to close; paint falling off; silicone looks like it was applied with a knife.
Whoever checks the workmanship needs some serious training!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oldbloke72 Very comfortable place to stay
Staff were excellent on arrival. Room was ready and very clean, but one light did not work.
We ate in the restaurant in the evening and were surprised at how good the meal and staff were, very good food but, the same old complaint, the wine was very expensive.
Breakfast was excellent, staff again very helpful.
Would recommend this hotel, far better than some others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bob the Fuzz Very comfortable room and bed.Almost
Almost perfect stay but the check-in on arrival was not good.We were overcharged for breakfast on one of the nights. We pointed this out and it was rectified. The morning paper was not available on the second night.The receptionist who dealt with us was most unsure of procedures. The choice , cooking and quality of breakfasts was first class.

We booked this hotel as we have on a few other times as it near the channel tunnel. We booked to family adjoining rooms back in May this year when we turned on the above date they did not have the rooms we had booked and all the could offer was 1 room with a sofa bed and double then 1 double up the end of the coriander . The room with the sofa bed was the only room to put my daughter and two grandchildren in and either though we did not wont smoking there was a very strong smell of smoke.
We would prob not stay here again

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by swissball Reasonable value but good location.
Generally the hotel was adequate for our needs but the service in the restaurant was slow and poor, particularly at breakfast when it was busy. There were not enough staff in the restaurant to provide a good service. The service was particularly 'scrappy' at breakfast with staff who were hassled and snappy with customers. The tables were littered with used pots and crockery and the food in the buffet was not replenished. When asked about getting a fried egg, I was told by the supervisor that there were scrambled eggs - I was certainly given short shrift! At dinner the service was slow but one young waitress from Birmingham was extremely helpful. Generally not what we expect at a Holiday Inn in terms of the restaurant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy2463 Comfortable
Room and reception excellent let down by the restaurant, waitress excellent but apparently only two chefs on duty which was a cause for delay. Two chefs should have been enough for the amount of customers using the dinning room. spoilt an excellent stopover.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by awf10 Ok hotel for a quick overnight
Very friendly staff, but hotel appeared dated and needs carpet replacement. We had a large group and were at the very opposite end of check in desk, but due to the doors being used solely for fire emergency exit, we had to haul all our luggage through the hotel when we could have parked right next to our room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MickCav Poor registration/liaison with cleaners
We were booked in as a party of 6 using 3 x Family Rooms.
Upon arrival my partner and I were assigned Room 151 and after getting ready, we advised reception that there was only 1 x bathsheet and 1 x small towel in our room, my friend and his wife (booked under the name of Coker) were advised their room was not yet ready, my son arrived and was allowed to book in but upon arrival at his allotted room, found the cleaners still in attendance - this was all after 1400hrs !
We registered our upset and were asked to wait in reception, no apology was proffered, when we explained that we had to be in Ashford for 1500hrs, my friend and his wife were kept in reception until finally after again registering our complaints, they were given access to a double room, my son had to leave his bag and get changed in my room - again no apology was received, hardly the world class service you claim to offer !
Upon our return I had to again prompt reception (by now it was a differrent young lady) and she ensured we had sufficient towels. No mention of placing my friend and his wife in a family room which had been paid for however the new receptionist did apologise for your poor registration but at no time was there any mention of re-imbursement for shoddy allocation, poor service or downgrading of one of the rooms.
A noisy wedding party merely completed the overall experience when they banged 3 x times on my son's door during the night as the wandered aimlessly and unchecked through the hotel !

We used the Holiday Inn Express, Ashford last year and were impressed. This year we were lucky to get the meal deals on our way out and into the UK.
The staff, hotel and food were brilliant. Will stay there again !

We were in England 10 days and stayed at Holiday Inns and Holiday Inn Expresses every chance we could. They were all superior to anywhere else we stayed. Some of the properties may have been comparable but the employees at every Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express was what made them shine. I hope they all get the recognition they deserve.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very clean, comfortable hotel
We stayed here 2 nights to attend a wedding. After a 4hr 30min journey we were not in the best of moods but reception was welcoming (as were all staff, who without exception always had a friendly greeting) & the room was spacious, airy & clean. The room was totally blacked out at night enabling a good uninterrupted sleep & when we drew back the curtains, we were treated to a sight of a rabbit family happily munching away on the grass outside. The breakfast was also generous, with oodles of choice, well presented & hot, where applicable . The shower was one of the best we have used in a hotel (perhaps more shower gel next time!) & the only gripe was not enough tea/coffee/milk satchels in room to quench our thirst throughout the stay. Well placed for shopping & channel tunnel. We would stay again if ever in the area. Easily accessible from all motorways & only 5 mins from M20. Well done everyone (& the weather helped - breakfast in the garden being another treat).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't Poor check in confusion
On arrival we were assigned our room but having walked down long corridors we found the key did open the door. We returned to reception and waited in line again to be a new key. This time it opened the door but the room was already occupied!!
We returned to reception, waited in line again and were then assigned a new room which was OK.
On check out I was given a package which I was told was addressed to me. I explained that it couldn't be because no one knew I was staying there, however, the receptionist insisted I take it. At my car I checked the addressee and it was for someone with a different name. I returned to reception and they were very reluctant to take it back so I just left it on the desk.
