Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simon59 Convenient location
We wanted a hotel just across the Dartford Crossing (from North) & the hotel was easy to find & convenient. We got a friendly welcome (from Preeta?) who also checked us out - we requested a quiet room & got one and Preeta (?) advised us that with a large group in an early breakfast might be busy, so planned to come later. This was the only problem with our stay; by the time at 8am we got down the only fruit was tinned cling peaches and pretty stale croissants, which is not up to the standard we've come to expect from HI Express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jane5310 Discrimination against single travellers.
Pleasant hotel - I have no complaints about the quality of what was provided, but as a single traveller, I take strong exception to having to pay double. I was with a married couple and was charged the same in total for my room as they paid for the two of them. I ate only one breakfast!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MJAinza Stay at HI in Dartford
It would have been great to have more choices of things to eat in the refregirated or non-refrigirated section of the hotel. Guests arriving after the kitchen is closed have no where close to go for food especially if they don't have transportation so more choices of things to eat would be great.

The only down side is the vicious speed ramps, in and out even at crawl speed and full load great caution is required, take heed of all the marks on the bumps,

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on a visit for The Who concert at The O2 and we were delighted with our stay- from check-in the staff were great - very friendly and helpful and we felt relaxed straight away. The hotel was clean and tidy and there was a reasonable choice on the menu also, if we are going to be anywhere near the area again I would have no hesitation in staying here - well done to all the staff -hope to see you again!.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tyger3 A successful weekend
We arrived at the hotel on the Friday having travelled down from Edinburgh to attend a competition in Longfield.
The rooms were large, clean and welcoming.
The staff were brilliant - we needed taxis to ferry us back and forth between the station, Longfield and an Italian restaurant in Dartford and the staff organised these for us.
We ate in the hotel on the Friday night - the food was very good and all of us (6 people) really enjoyed it.
My room had a view of the Dartford Crossing but the rest had somewhat limited, roof-type views.
I would definitely recommend this location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by getaway42 What it said it offered it did
Arrived much later than expected due to road works and traffic jams, missing the hot food order deadline. Very pleasant helpful staff served hot soup and bread, toast and coffee. Exactly good. Spent the next day at an event in London , returned and having checked out the menu at breakfast chose to eat a meal at the hotel. The food was what it said it would be with the exception of mushrooms (there was only one).All was sufficient for our needs, fully relaxed reasonable value for money. Would use again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JEDM GOOD NIGHT AWAY FROM HOME
I was able to get to the hotel by taxi (and found that staff are more than willing to book one). One thing though, some taxi drivers will drop you off round the back, instead of the front, as it will not cost you as much. However, you do have a short walk to get to the front. The comfort of the room was second to none, but there is quite a bit of noise from outside, as I was right above an ventilatiion facitilty! But I manged to get a good night's sleep, al and have a nice shower in the morning, thanks to the facitilites provided. The TV had a good picture and I was able to change channels and I was able to use the reading lights. The tempertaure of the room was easy to adjust. One thing I would point out: your room key MUST be inserted into the slot by the door and kept in it, as it operates the lights and the air-conditioning. The bed was comfortable and you get a choice of soft/firm pillows. I also had a sofa bed and it is quite easy to use, as instructions are provided. Coffee/tea, a kettle and a hairdryer are also provided and staff will bring you extra tea/coffee, as well as other items, free of charge. There is a telephone provided and staff are available 24/7. There are some leaflets and a guest form provided, as well as notepaper and a pen. One more thing though; not all rooms have a view of the Dartford Bridge!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by spiderman All round nice Hotel
I found this hotel very welcoming, with a nice room and free parking. Close to Bluewater and Lakeside shopping centre, and only 10 mins drive away from the o2 arena. Breakfast was nice, with good selection of hot and cold foods. My only negative thing was that all the disabled car parking spaces where taken up by drivers without a disabled parking permit - which I would have preferred as my wife is registered disabled. Hence, we had to park in a standard space. Apart from this, my hotel experience was very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnW24 A very good hotel
This was our first stay at this hotel but I do not think it will be our last. It is a very comfortable hotel, very clean and tidy. The staff we met were friendly and helpful. The room was great and we never heard any noise from outside although the hotel is near a busy road. Breakfast was good with plenty to choose from and as much as you want. I cannot fault this hotel and I would use it again and recommend to anyone..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Isabella92 Clean Room
Checked in for 2nights.Was impressed with the cleanliness of
the reception area. Receptionist was welcoming and helpful. Our room was very clean with a spotless bathroom. The bed was comfortable, though a bit bouncy when you're used to a firmer mattress. Breakfast was adequate with a good selection of cereals, fruit ,yoghurts toast etc. The hot section was disappointing with only scrambled eggs,baked beans and sausages. Over all it was a pleasant stay and hubby and I would stay there again when in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garth Unexpectedly relaxing
We used the hotel as an overnight stop on he way to a funeral.
The staff were friendly and helpful. I am not a great fan of the open reception/dining area arrangements but it was OK. The evening meal was unimaginative but the quality was good. My wife really enjoyed the sausage and mash. The room was just as expected for this type of hotel, clean and fresh with a good bathroom. I liked the firm bed and had a great nights sleep, my wife prefers a slightly softer bed. We were worried about noise from the M25, but were at the rear of the hotel and there was no noise either inside the hotel or out.
I was not very keen on the diy breakfast arrangement, at first but the food was good, hot and fresh. The checkout was very easy and the male receptionist helpful. 9/10

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by unhappyholidaymaker An overnight stay
We booked into the holiday inn for an overnight stay, as a suprise 25th birthday party was being held nearby and this was suggested as a place to stay.
We felt the Holiday Inn had no atmosphere, the staff were friendly enough, but there was only football on the TV no mood music, the rooms were basic, no heating in the bathroom, towels not overly big, air con in main room kept us awake all night and dryed our throats.
Breakfast poor, no bacon, no milk jug for tea, had to top cup up from cereal milk machine. butter too hard to spread, no knives left, we had to ask for them.

I stay here regularly and the staff are all extremly polite and looking to take care of your needs. Nothing seems to be to much trouble. Restaurant can be busy but the food in general is nice and filling and there are plenty of large screen tv's for watching the sport.
