Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by timyp23 Great size family room
We only stayed overnight on our way to the tunnel crossing, but overall we were impressed by the hotel. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and we had an excellent size family room (the biggest we have been in) - I just wish all hotels offered family rooms like that.

Family room had plenty of space for the 4 of us, and also gave a degree of privacy, there was room to spread out. Breakfast was tasty if not a little basic but served our needs comfortably.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Roberto-1966 value for money rooms - poor management
We booked this hotel for an overnight stay before a very early departure the next morning for the Channel Tunnel. The main reason for booking was the great value for money of the room charge. Before or even on arrival we weren't told that the on site pub/restaurant was closed due to a private function. This meant that we - and other guests at the Holiday Inn had no choice but to use the in-hotel restaurant. The management must have known this was going to be busy and yet there was only 1 chef in the kitchen and most of the waiting staff had clearly been brought in and visibly looked at a loss as what to do! Even the ladies from reception were brought in to wait tables....but with only 1 chef this was clearly not needed. We had booked our meal for 7pm and did not receive our starters till 8.30. It was only on making enquiries and bringing this to the attention of the 'senior' waitress that anything seemed to be done about it.
