Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by honeysuckledreams Very Impressed and would stay again
Overall we were impressed by everything. From the flexibility and professionalism of the staff, to the clean and comfortable rooms and the good breakfast (which we thought was very good with a good enough selection)
It was very useful having a hotel close by to the competition we were attending, and I must add a big thank you to the receptionists who helped us find somewhere to store our sports equipment safely overnight.
One small bad point was that our rooms were close to the stairs and there was a noisy extractor fan going all night in the stairwell. There was some background travel noise, as the hotel is quite close to the Dartford crossing, but it wasn't a big problem overall.

A group of 10 of us stayed at the hotel because we had a wedding nearby. The staff were amazing even when we were in the dining area at 11 pm getting pizza delivered, they provided us with plates and cutlery. Once we had finished they even told us to leave the boxes there and they would clean up. I was so impressed with their customer service I would certainly go back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cocopops Great staff and hospitable stay
We have stayed here twice over the last month and the service from the front staff was beyond expectation. They were extremely helpful with faxes and emails which saved us a lot of time. The room was quiet and the beds very comfortable. Rooms at the back are quieter as the Dartford tunnel can be a little noisy. Good breakfast too.
Will stay again as it is perfect for the M25 and Bluewater.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Iwuala Clean room and environment
I stayed in room 204 b/w Aug 22 and Sept 1, 2013 with 2 of my children aged 12 and 10 yrs. The room was always clean, no space for the chair to be used around the desk, no fridge in the room, the A/C did not function the last three days and i complained to the front desk twice but nothing was done; during my 10 day stay, the lift only worked for about 4 days. The worst day was when we were checking out, i and my children aged 10 12 yrs, had to manually carry about 9 luggages from level 2 to ground level, one lady assited us but got tired halfway and left.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by papa67j Pleasantly surprised....
If you need somewhere to rest your weary head for the night this Holiday Inn will tick all the boxes, and if you reserve the room in advance, cheap as well.
There were ample spaces in which to park our car and these were situated right outside the reception. The staff were pleasant and very helpful when we were checking in. They explained that the lift was out of order, this was not a problem to us, however a group with numerous cases or bags would struggle.
The food was acceptable, served promptly and hot. The room was very clean, air conditioned and comfortable. The night was undisturbed, no adjacent room doors slamming, which is unusual.
Breakfast was good with a variety of hot foods, cereals, yoghurts and fruit which should cater for just about everyone.
This would be a place where I would stay again when in the area and I am looking forward to trying other locations in the future.

Quality service from the moment you go through the door.
This hotel has excellent staff who are really friendly and always try their best to assist. The reception staff are most welcoming and when they can are happy to talk to you.
When I am in the Dartford area I look forward to going to this hotel. I personally highly recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by a2n2 comfortable bed, good service and excellent breakfast
myself, wife and two kids, we stayed overnight at this hotel for our london trip.The staff was freindly and service was very good. The lady at the reception offered us late check out (2pm) for free.
The room was clean and air conditioned. The best part was complimentary buffet breakfast. There was good choices of hot and cold breakfast. The staff was quick to refill the food. The only con is the location of the hotel which is very near to the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge. There was constant noise from the traffic over the bridge, which in my opinion was not noticiable during daytime but bit annoying during night.
Other than this we had a comfortable stay. I would recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sue02 Very good accommodation
We stayed on a Sunday evening and found everything to be satisfactory. The room was spacious and well furnished. Bed slightly hard but not too bad and a choice of pillows, hard and soft!
Staff very pleasant. Breakfast quite adequate. Would definately use this hotel again. The only negative: we had a room next to a corridor fire door and could therefore hear it clicking during the late evening.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GDim Reasonable for the price
Service was efficient and staff were friendly. The room was spacious and fine for what we needed. The only negative for us was the food. We had fish and chips in the evening. The chips were very fast food reconstituted and tasteless and the peas also appeared to be some kind of tasteless value brand. After the evening's food, we were not tempted by the cooked breakfast and stuck to the continental which was perfectly fine although the orange juice had a strange taste.
The big question is would we stay again - the answer - well this was already our second visit here and yes we would stay again as long as the price remained at a similar level. It was perfectly reasonable value for the money pai.d

The rooms were of normal good standard, though we had a noisy coach party staying on our floor, a few of whom seem to want to spend some time talking in the corridor. Annoying.
The normally good breakfast was well below par. The choice of fresh fruit was limited to 4 bruised apples, there was only croissants available whereas in the past there has been a selection of different pastries. Bread for the toaster had run out and another guest had to find a member of staff to get more bread. Overall disappointing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 A visit not to be repeated
Family rooms are too small, no single bed options so two kids had to share a double sofa bed. Sink plug hole stank, shower plug hole would not drain very well, floor tiles were cracked in front of shower tray, no bath so again room not suitable for families with very young children. Double sockets did not work on vanity/desk area, lack of pillows for number of booked occupants. Breakfast ingredients were poor, hard baked beans, tasteless sausages and awful scrambled egg that must be from a carton. The coisants were over-baked, dry and hard. The fruit juices were not great, especially the tropical fruit which was ransid, perhaps the syrup had finished but nobody checked. The coffee machine was adequate but did not dispense freshly ground coffee. The view from the room was not something to behold, a deprived council estate which summed up our thoughts on our stay. Needless to say, we will not be repeating our visit, the premier inn on the opposite side of the road will be getting our custom in future.

This Holiday Inn Express renewed our faith in the chain. After having an awful stay at the Sandy/Bedford Holiday Inn we decided to give them one last chance. I'm proud to say we weren't disappointed. After a 9 hour drive we were very relieved to arrive in the early evening. We were met by a lovely receptionist who was informative and very welcoming. The rooms were of an Express standard, a good enough size with all that you needed. The bed was extremely comfy. The reason why I didn't give the room and comfort a 5 star was due to the fact that the air conditioning was poor. Although there was a fan in the room also it didn't cool the whole room done which made the room unbelievably warm. A more powerful fan or even better the air conditioning working perfectly would have made the room a 5 star. The following day we enjoyed a lovely breakfast, which there was plenty off. When arriving back in the hotel that night we decided to have dinner in the hotel. The food was of a good quality and tasty. My wife, who is disabled, took I'll during our meal but the staff were a great support. Whilst helping my wife back to the room, the staff plated our desserts onto a tray for me to take up to our room and showed care and concern for my wife. When we checked out the following morning it was quick and efficient and again the staff were very courteous and kind. I have actually emailed the manager of the hotel to pass on my thanks and gratitude to his staff. Not sure if I can name them on here but I have in my email. Thanks again. Mr and Mrs Hunter

Stayed here for 3 nights in July and the service and attention to detail was excellent. I asked for a room at the back of the hotel and it was very quiet. The breakfast had so much choice and as soon as something was getting low the staff were there to make sure everything was replaced.
A most enjoyable stay and I will certainly be back. Well done Holiday Inn Express, Dartford.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NigFH The frustration using GPS - "I know - it 's a pain isn't it"
This is a typical HI Express BUT be warned. If you put the postcode into a Garmin you finish up in a cul-de-sac looking at the hotel but about 75 feet above it. To get to the hotel is then a15 minute drive involving crossing the M25 etc. A real pain and not an unknown one. The receptionist reaction when I told her on in-check was "I know - it 's a pain isn't it"
