Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent and comfortable stay at this Holiday Inn
From checking in with friendly and efficient reception staff to the morning we left was very enjoyable. Rooms were very comfortable. If there was something missing in the room I would say that it could have benefitted to having some drinking water in the room. The breakfast with all its choices was excellent. The whole ambience of the hotel was very bright and comfortable.
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in the area.

We have stayed at this hotel three times. The second time was a good experience however the other two were marred by the hotel being taken over by group bookings, one a wedding the other a large group of people from a motoring club. On the most recent occasion we waited 10 minutes for the receptionist to finally turn up with a mug of tea/coffee in her hand - all other staff being completely occupied looking after a wedding party.
The room was clean and comfortable and the wait at reception was soon forgotten. However having risen early to get breakfast at six thirty, as we had been told the start time would be, we had to wait until seven o'clock for service to commence. Being first through the door we could have been forgiven for expecting hot freshly cooked food, this saddly was far from the case. The breakfast range was first class but, having between us taken some of every choice, we found that all of the food was cold - not tepid - cold. This then made the need to make our own tea from tea bags and a flask of hot water quite irritating.
We will think long and hard before returning to this hotel but for those who do not want service or breakfast it is a good clean hotel close to the M26.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Claude the Crab Nice hotel
We chose this hotel because of its location and leisure facilities. The hotel itself is easy to find but with a comfortable countryside feel about it. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, if a little tired. The bed was a bit soft for my liking but ok, the sound insulation in the room could have been better - the guests in the room next to us were part of a wedding party and we were treated to a rendition of Bob the Builder and loud conversation between 3 and 4am. The food in the restaurant was very good and the service excellent, however because of the wedding party we had to eat dinner in a corner of the lobby. Breakfast was served in the restaurant and was very good. Definitely would stay here again and would recommend this hotel to others.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jeannie69 Clean Hotel with friendly staff.
No lifts in hotel so if you have difficulty with stairs request a ground floor room. When we stayed there was a wedding reception taking place in the evening and it was impossible to get a drink at the bar.
Luckily we were off to a party at another venue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kenright Lovely hotel
We stayed at the hotel for one night as we were going to a family party nearby. The hotel decor is lovely- very classic entrance with modern rooms. The reception staff were friendly and check in was quick and easy. We were given a free upgrade to an executive room and it had everything we could need such as iron, ironing board, trouser press, etc. Very clean and comfortable room. Only small complaints are: I thought there would be free wi-fi, and when we went for a drink in the bar we had to wait a long time because there was a wedding on- there should have been more bar staff. At breakfast there was no-one at the desk to take our room number, plus a lot of the breakfast items had run out and there were queues of people waiting for more to be cooked. Overall though it was a wonderful stay and would stay there again if we were in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mad-anna Our favourite UK Holiday Inn
Best hotel for visiting Kent and central London. Good stop over place en-route to the ferry - and the rates are always exceptional when we visit.
I felt impelled to write a review when I stumbled across a 59% thumbs up rating on another website whilst trying to find the IHG website to rebook our next visit to Wrotham Heath!
This hotel is peaceful - almost silent in every room we've stayed in and we stay here 3-5 times a year when visiting family. Yet it's next to the motorway for convenient arrival. Very close to London for weekend trips to the South Bank etc.
Staff are always incredibly friendly, the breakfast always impeccable and the pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna - like the rooms - always spotless. On the one occasion we were not given the room we'd book - the staff bent over backwards to solve the issue.
If we didn't live so far away - I'd visit more often!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mary 39 No internet access unless you pay!
A really pleasant hotel badly let down by the lack of internet access anywhere in the Hotel unless you paid, £5 for 1 hour. Room was clean and comfortable.
Bar service was very poor. After waiting at the Bar to be served for 10 minutes and no sign of any staff we had to go and look for someone.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by EfficiencyMan Let down by terrible restaurant service
I have stayed in the hotel on a number of occasions and generally had a pleasant experience. The hotel suits my needs well. However on this occasion, and this has happened a couple of times, the visit was ruined by a terrible restaurant experience. Sitting down at 7:30, problems with food availability (running out of lettuce and burgers!) 30 minutes wait for drinks and finally get served food at 9:30. Excuses of staff phoning in sick was not good enough. Terrible management of the problem managing to upset a large number of guests, some of who have already decided to use a new hotel in the future. I have not yet made up my mind...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paul LSS Clean and Comfortable very convenient to motorway
Having experienced a very, very poor overnight stay at Holiday Inn Corby a few weeks ago, I decided to give Holiday Inn another chance given that my historical knowledge of the chain has been good as a norm!! Staying at Sevenoaks was a pleasant and more than acceptable experience and has put my faith in the Holiday Inn chain back on track!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by toobusyforthis Would stay again & eat elsewhere!
Had a very comfortable overnight stay 2 adults & 4 children after a long day in Canterbury before travelling to France the following day.
The room was very comfortable. The kids loved the swimming pool and there was a selection of small toys for them to play with (balls, watering can, boats, sinkers, floats) & a bubble tub for 5 & overs.
The food in the resturant was good but service was slow and VERY EXPENSIVE! 'Kids eat free' but two adult meals and drinks #one starter, 2 mains, 3 drinks & 1 dessert between us# came to over £70!!! If I had know there is a beefeater a stone throw away we would've gone there. Turn left out of carpark & it's by the traffic lights on the right less that 2 min drive!
Didn't use wifi as I refuse to pay extra. Although I had no phone network in the area!

We came here for my birthday, 12 in total including the grandchildren .
The hotel had good facilities and all the staff were very pleasant and helpful at all times.Little disappointed with size of room compared with the others in our party.
We had b.b & evening meal which was good value as we booked well in advance and got good rates .
Some of the evening meals were a bit messed up as there was a lot of us . However we were given a discount on the drinks because of this.
Maidstone town was 11 miles away which didn't make it easy to visit.
However overall we had a good time and would visit again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blackrock1960 Relaxing break
We stayed at this hotel on the weekend of 7th February, after travelling from France it was lovely to see, we had a very spacious family room, we have two children aged 8 and 10, there was plenty of room for all of us, the breakfast was good, the staff were always on hand and very polite, and nothing was too much trouble especially the restaurant staff. The swimming pool looked really good although we did not use it this time (as I forgot to take the swimming stuff, to which I am still being reminded). We will definitely be booking again and be recommending this hotel to others in the UK and France.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by millik Expensive
Even with a corporate rate this hotel is expensive. When it was booked we were told there were no standard rooms available and we had to book executive rooms. On the website it was showing standard rooms available but booking on line would mean the loss of our corporate rate. Something is not quite right. Try Rochester it is usually cheaper and the rooms are better.
No points voucher offered on this visit.

I have stayed quite a few times now on business.
Good hotel, clean and friendly and helpful staff.
Breakfast very good and the spa/pool and gym very good.
The complentry wifi for IHG loyalty is not good at all being only 256k , and overpriced for decent speed.
The rooms could also do with a blanket in the wardrobe.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dean01 Great pool and spa, friendly staff
I think it's the pool, spa and gym facilities that make this hotel. Only stayed 1 night but made full use of these. Rooms are comfortable but I wasn't happy that I had to pay for Wifi both in the rooms and in the lounge area. We had just stayed at the Holiday Inn Brentford lock and not only was in-room wifi cheaper (although it should be free!) but lounge wifi was free. The bar staff were very helpful, allowing us to order off the main restaurant menu even though the restaurant wasnt open at the time. This kind of help is always appreciated especially when you have young children.
