Not the first time we have stayed here and not the last . Always clean, good value with helpful friendly staff and good quality food. Good internet facilities and clean rooms and bathrooms. Not much else to add. Will stay here again, as usual.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LarryTee Staff very nice
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel wasn't easy to find as it wasn't signposted very well. Drove past it once and had to go around the A2 again as it is hidden behind a petrol station.
The bathroom toilet was dirty. Cobwebs in the extractor fan.
Bedsheets were stained.
Overall, the room was modern and clean apart from the above problems.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by alipos Nice room and good service but avoid the breakfast
Lovely room and bathroom and our room was not too noisy considering it was on the side of the main road.
The breakfast was horrible though and we were disappointed to see how many plates had been put out dirty.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Harrywho Poor Location & cleanliness at Meals
You have to access (in & out) the Hotel via a Service Area on one side of a dual carriageway. There are no alternative access points. The Hotel being just behind the Petrol Station.
This should be mentioned in Hotel description as whilst just acceptable for overnight stop en route, certainly not a location for any longer.
Evening meal was served to table by a Server with dirty finger nails which actually were touching part of our meals as he carried the plates. Very off putting. A number of us were cold because the air conditioning was on full blast.
As 2 nights booked we abandoned 2nd & when asked why I was told that the Service area location was not mentioned because they were not on a Service Area! Staff member quite verbally aggressive during conversation.

Room is quiet and clean.
Good breakfast and variety.
The mini croissants and danish pastry are delicious.
Efficient breakfast staff.
The wifi is too slow, 256 kbs!!!
Emailing my business associates was impossible.
Hope the wifi speed will be upgraded in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kmh64 Great - Once you've found it!
Suprisingly quiet for a hotel by a main road but coming back to it out of Canterbury involves a U-turn off the A2 after which the signage is not as obvious as it might be - we made it second time around!
Clean, friendly and convenient for visiting the city and the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by duckss good for an overnight
Entrance through a garage was off putting but once you are inside the grounds a good nights sleep in a nice hotel. The hotel is next to a busy road which you can occasionally hear.
Inside the hotel all is clean and nice, the disabled room was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good stop off hotel
Good basic clean hotel for stop off on way back from France. We stayed in a family room - one double bed and one sofa bed - small but adequate for one night stay. The children could feel the springs of the sofa bed so we asked for another duvet to put on the mattress as a liner - no problem for the staff - they brought it to our room within 15 minutes.
Good choice for breakfast - self service; eat as much as you like.
This is the third time we have stayed here and would stay again for another stop off on way to or from France.
Very good value for money and only short distance into Canterbury town Centre.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Zo-Jo1999 Don't expect an express service at this Express Holiday Inn!
Overall the hotel is understaffed, so although the staff are friendly, everything happens slowly as there is not enough staff members to see to the guests. It took about 1/2 hour to check in as the guy on the desk was dealing with so many customers, for example, not great after a long day..... So although the hotel itself was OK, and the staff were OK, do not expect an express service! Breakfast was also exceptionally poor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sugar and Spice /////Very relaxing stay
We found the general attitude of the staff to be of a high standard - very polite , helpful and friendly.
The room we had was comfortable and clean which meant we were able to relax and enjoy the few days we stayed there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lindanna49 Excellent all round
We stayed here twice in a week, firstly on a Monday then the following Saturday. At all times the staff were courteous, most helpful and welcoming. Every request was dealt with efficiently and with a smile. Both rooms were clean and comfortable and we slept well. There was lots of nice food to choose from at breakfast and the hot food was hot, not lukewarm or cold! Can't praise the staff here highly enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bands18 Great service from a hidden treasure
Having eventually found this hotel - better signage would be helpful especially for those not coming from London - we want to
thank all the staff for making our stay so pleasurable.
We found the fan provided in our room so useful on hot nights. Despite having two coach parties to cater for one night the staff made sure we were suitably seated away from the rest, that our food was promptly served and we were comfortable at all times. Their friendly but efficient manner was much appreciated.
There are not that many hotels where you can see rabbits playing outside the windows! If in the area we would certainly pop in again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TE03 Good Value for Money
We had a standard family room which was fine for a one night stay, our girls shared the sofa bed which made the room a little small when it was in use but not a problem for one night.
The hotel is next to a main road however our room was quiet.
The breakfast was a pleasant surprise much better than we were expecting, a help yourself buffet which included sausages, scrambed eggs and beans, fresh fruit and warm pastries. The chef kept bringing out plenty of food for the busy restaurant.
If we needed to be in the area again we would use this hotel again.

The staff at this hotel were extremely friendly and attentive. Although they probably needed more staff on duty in the evening, those who were on duty could not do enough for us. The rooms are newly refurbished and excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pioneer1952 Comfortable room
The room was comfortable, clean and quiet but the breakfast service was lacking in quality and variety. The staff took some time to replenish what had been used so the breakfast took longer to complete than I expected.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mjcj room 115 excessive noise
The Holiday Inn Express at Canterbury is as you would expect from a Holiday Inn hotel, fine if you are staying one night on the way to somewhere else. However if you are given room 115 and want to be able to sleep at night I suggest you demand to be moved. The room has a refrigeration / power unit situated 6 ft away from the window which hums loudly 24 hours a day and makes sleeping difficult and having the window open impossible. In fairness we asked to change room for our 2nd night which they arranged but there was not a hint of an apology from the manager at reception for the disruption.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Desperate Dan Fantastic value for money
When we arrived we were welcomed warmly at reception and very pleasantly surprised by the quality of our room and the public areas. All the staff were helpful and pleasant, and the choice and quality and service of food for dinner was excellent.
Overall, a very pleasant stay which will be repeated whenever we are away on business near a Holiday Inn

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Klotzi Autobahnmotel ohne Charme - OK für eine Übernachtung
Am Motorway neben einer Tankstelle 8km von Canterbury entfernt gelegen. Zimmer klein und laut, leider auch nicht klimatisiert. Das Frühstück typisch für Holiday Inn Express - es reicht zur Sättigung. Die BAr ist nett, das Personal sehr entgegenkommend.
Für eine Übernachtung ok.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by geordie mafia Good service & excellent value
Ideally situated for touring the area especially Canterbury ( only £10-00 taxi ride). Although check-in was not until 3-00 p.m. and we had to get ready for a funeral 10 miles away for 3-15 p.m.,they checked us in early as to avoid any rush.
Spotless accommodation & would definitely recommend the Holiday Inn Express to all .

Stayed at the Hotel to attend son's graduation, had a pleasant stay. It was a very hot day and a fan had been put into the room, which was needed. We needed to know a good City centre car park, the reception gave us a map and looked up the post code for the car park, this proved very useful. Overall a very good experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by La Familia Schöne Lage, um Ausflüge zu machen
Wir haben das Hotel gebucht, weil wir mit 2 Kindern ein Hotel haben wollten mit Frühstücksbuffet. Zimmer waren gut, Frühstück war gut, Mitarbeiter waren nett. Lage direkt an der Autobahn war leiser als erwartet, gut abgeschirmt. Einzig negativ war die Zufahrt, wir mussten lange suchen. Würden das Hotel auf jeden Fall noch einmal nehmen. 10 Minuten bis zur Innenstadt.
