Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bird1 A motorway haven!
Some of the best service I've experienced. Early morning or late at night no request was too much trouble for the staff.
Easy access to both the town and the motorway it was a perfect traveller's rest!
The bathroom was clean and functional and the bed clean and comfortable. The only downside was the condition of the sofa and chair which were shabby very stained and in poor condition.
The breakfast was average. The juices (orange and apple) were very watery from poorly mixed/inadequate concentrate. The cooked breakfast was the usual brand of cheap sausage, scrambled egg and beans. Could benefit from a few more quality products. But again the staff were friendly and the dining experience therefore felt better than the food on offer! But there was plenty to eat and it did the job!
Loved the extended check out facility! Would recommend this hotel as a value for money option.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wetspanner An oasis at the end of a troubled day.
A last minute decision to book, due to issues on the motorway. And what an excellent choice I made. From initial phone enquiry to arriving, checking in and eating, the service was efficient and faultless. Everything was covered, explained and pointed out. Nothing was a problem to the front desk staff or bar staff, considering how busy it was, they were all smiling and courteous. 10/10.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cat5man Bring your own mattress!
Everything about my room was fine, except for the rock-hard mattress. It would probably be okay for somebody who weighed average weight or above. I, however, weigh about 8 1/2 stone, so for me it was like laying on a rock! Very uncomfortable. I didn't sleep very well...

Excellent value for money, comfy beds, clean room and bathroom. If I had one gripe it's that there wasn't enough milk for us both to fully enjoy our early morning cuppa.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paddydog Great service
Stayed in July for two nights, Hotel is a little difficult to find off the main road. Both the inside and outside public areas are well presented. Bedroom and bathroom very clean and tidy. Towels where a little thin, but not to bad. Bed comfortable and TV excellent. Air con did not work but staff very helpfully in trying to remedy the problem. (Especially Rebecca on reception)
Breakfast is not great but edible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emben Highly recommended to stay ,at this HOLIDAY INN ,DARTFORD
Despite being right next to the M25 / Dartford Tunnel, you couldn't hear any traffic from inside the room which was nice. Decent quality accommodation for a reasonable price, The bar was pleasant and service was quick,
The only problem was finding the Hotel.,
we missed the turn in,with heavy traffic
I think a few signs posts on the roundabouts would not go amiss.

i have stayed at the holiday inn several times, we have always been greeted by warm and friendly staff, this time we had requested a cot as we had our grandson with us which was ready and waiting in the room. have never had any problems, rooms are always clean and tidy, and you get a choice of pillows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chris01254 Lovely stay
great room with a great view of the QE11 Bridge, really comfortable beds and a nice big flat screen TV. Breakfast was as expected and the first time we have sampled the evening meal, was very tasty and good value too.
Great position for Brands Hatch at the right price.
If ever i can find a Holiday Inn Express near my destination I will always go there for guaranteed quality all round.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great hotel, very clean rooms and comfortable beds
The hotel is very clean, comfortable and good value for money. I have stayed there many times. My only complaint is, my last two visits have been slightly disappointing due to the staff not coping with the rush at breakfast. A number of items ran out, they were replaced, but it was then too late for me and my team, we could not wait.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Viv61 Very comfortable bed and great staff
On arrival the hotel could not find our booking. This was because their email system had a fault on the day we booked and they had not received our booking. However they quickly sorted this out and gave us a complimentary drink for the inconvenience. The room was big and roomy with a sofa and a king size bed which was so comfy. Breakfast was tasty with a good selection of hot and cold buffet items. It was constantly being filled up through out the breakfast hrs. We use this hotel when visiting family in the area. Again we were not disappointed with the service we received.

Despite being right next to the M25 / Dartford Tunnel, you couldn't hear any traffic from inside the room which was nice. Decent quality accommodation for a reasonable price, with the added bonus of free breakfast and wifi. The bar was pleasant and service was quick despite the hotel being full. There was a good variety of food available for breakfast, although it would have been even better with bacon available!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by shorty1 good location but poor standard
hotel was a fair price and great location for overnight stop off before going onto france in the morning but had a problem with the room not having a cot as requested and a faulty air con unit overflowing over my son resulted in calling out maintenance at midnight when all we wanted to do was relax ready to continue our jurney in the morning
the hotel staff tried to sort the problem with the air con unit but the 2 people who came to fix it were managers and didnt have a clue what they were doing it was very shambolic

Breakfast was hot but not much choice bacon was gone no top very quickly found drinks very expensive and not much variety. E mailed customer service terribly unhelpful response.

Just one question why do you not supply bacon at breakfast?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Welltravelled23 Quiet and Comfortable
Holiday Inn Express, plenty of free car parking easy to find and convenient for the tunnel and motorway connections. Had a problem with the first room we were given but it was sorted out immediately and given an alternative room. Staff could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was disappointing, there was no bacon and what hot food there was looked unappetising. Plenty of cereals, toast etc so wasn't that bothered. (the breakfast is advertised as free but in effect it is included in the room rate). All in all a decent place to stay that isn't overly expensive.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SEK89 Good service but bad air con
Air con refused to turn off and was freezing cold - had a mind of its own. Worst night sleep in a long time
Service from the staff and food were good, rooms clean

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mpm13 Very helpful staf
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff in this hotel. A lovely group of people who value the guests.
On the downside the lighting in the room (overhead and desk area) is not strong enough for sustained paperwork in the evening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by teenastots great service at check in
On arrival checked in by a very efficient member of staff sorry can not remember his name I think it started with O. He went through all the details and gave us our room key we were on the first floor over looking the front off the hotel the room was a good size we had decided to book just one room for myself my husband and my dad to save money so they had made up the sofa bed which he said was ok the room was very clean with plenty off towels the only thing that wasn't checked as there was 3 adults in the room was the amount off mugs etc as you pay extra for 3rd person I feel this should have been checked. Breakfast was nice hot and cold choices and plenty of tea and coffee.We would all return again .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Helen Rockabillygirl overall very good, great view of Dartford Bridge
Overall very good. Only problem for us was difficulty in regulating the room temperature and we felt cold in the night. Specific gluten free breakfast options would be good. Great parking, quiet location. The fridge with drinks to buy was good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hobbo1956 Disapointed on this occasion
Having stayed here for the last 4 years I have never had any issues and always found it very comfortable and the staff good.
However, on this occasion I was advised I was not booked in and the hotel was full.
My office had booked the week before by email. Once the hotel had received a second email with proof of this, miraculously there was an available room.
I had to wait at reception for half an hour while this was sorted out. At one stage I had put my luggage back in the car to drive off!
