Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Whistleblower All good
Newer HI Express, excellently positioned for Channel Tunnel (only 5 mins to Check-In for tunnel). Lots of parking & very clean throughout. Eating area rather small but OK - it would be a challenge finding a seat when busy! Staff let the place down a bit with too laid back attitude when I checked-in with family late in the evening after a long drive - yet again I had to seek a drink voucher/extra points voucher upon arrival as it wasn't offered/included in Check-In pack!!! I am getting sick of asking; should be automatic. All in all a good HI Express but could be so much better, especially as this is probably the first stop after a long journey to Folkestone by most people who will stop here re: their next morning departure to France - the welcome should be more friendly & 'holiday-ish'

We stayed only briefly, arriving late and leaving very early. All staff very helpful. Providing a take away breakfast very welcome as we were catching the Shuttle at 05.20- excellent idea.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Michael1403 Great staff and they allow dogs to stay
Good stay again, great value. Staff really dealt with no kitchen on Saturday night helpfully & displayed customer care.
Charge for dog a little high, in my experience people can make much more mess than 1 small terrier type dog. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doddies Easy and cheap and only 3 or 4 minutes drive from the Tunnel
Stayed the night before heading through the channel tunnel at 6.00am the following morning.
Family room for family of four, including 10 and 8 year old, was ideal - easy and cheap and only 3 or 4 minutes drive to the Tunnel. Would definitely recommend to others who are thinking of doing the same.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Weekender15 Very comfortable beds and the staff gave a good service
We had trouble finding the Hotel even with a Sat Nav, would have been easier finding it if we have the number of the road or the signs for it was more noticeable when you come from the motorway, so spent an hour going around in circles.
Once there, our stay was good, very comfortable beds and the staff gave a good service. The only criticism would be the temperature in the room, as it was early December it was cold and the heating in the room did not work, we had asked at reception, which they said they would “unlock it” but still too cold.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jamess115 A reasonable hotel for a short stay
I stayed at this Holiday Inn Express in Folkestone for 1 night during a weekend while on a business trip and I would say that the hotel is good value for the money. The breakfast was good and the bed was comfortable. It was also very quiet at night although this could have been due to the fact that the hotel was less than half full.
A few observations: There is no way to control the heating in your room. It is automatically programmed to 'Central Heating mode' and it was cold overnight. So much so that I had to sleep with two duvets. Also the shower is very poor quality with no water pressure and the TV is no bigger than a computer monitor. Also, outside of my bedroom, there was a lorry or recycling truck doing the bins at 6a.m which woke me up. However, all in all, for the price it was a good stay and i would stay there again.

Travelled down from Staffordshire on Friday evening for Saturday morning Train. Good price for a room for 3 and a great night's sleep followed by breakfast and a quick trip to the Channel Tunnel which is right next door. Usual reliable service from Holiday Inn Express made our weekend so much easier.

We have discovered this particular Holiday Inn and thoroughly recommend it for its incredibly helpful, welcoming and friendly staff and for the comfort and convenience of the hotel and location. We enjoyed our evening meal and appreciated being able to have an early breakfast at 6 am before continuing our journey.
A big thank you and congratulations to all the staff and to the Holiday Inn organisation

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Traceyt Great location for euro tunnel
Really close to euro tunnel . Staff were very welcoming and helpful. room was clean and what you expect from Holiday Inn.
Room was cold and took ages to warm up. Pillows could do with replacing as they were quite hard and lumpy.
We dined at an all you can eat Chinese Oriental 10 mins in a car from the hotel really good value .
Breakfast was plentiful.
overall a nice hotel with nice staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MemeO Dog welcome and easy booking
First time of staying in a hotel with our new dog and found it to be very comfortable and the dog was made a fuss of just as much as we were by staff. The room was very clean and the bed very compfy. Even meal was basic but enjoyable. There was as much breakfast as you wanted however would have liked some bacon to go with the sausage and eggs.
Over all a very comfortable stay and have booked again for a fortnights time

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Miallettravellers Impressive first stay
First time we've stayed at a Holiday Inn. Picked this for good price and convenience for The Tunnel. Raining cats and dogs on arrival but there was a trolley available for our luggage and received some cover from the elements under the canopy. Efficient booking on line and friendly welcome on arrival. Would have liked disabled room ( on crutches at the moment), on this trip but not possible with the dog. But there is a lift so stairs to first floor not a problem. Good breakfast. Highly recommended. We will definitely stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Orca Poor evening food
Whilst the hotel was comfortable and clean the food served in the evening was poor and expensive for microwaved food, the choice was also limited, yet the adverts declare a restaurant is was in fact an area adjacent to the reception.

We were very happy with the room, parking and closeness to the Eurotunnel. The staff were very attentive which was a bonus. Breakfast was far better than expected. Would use this hotel again and recommend to others

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Graham666 What more does one need?
This was our 10th visit to HiEx Cheriton. We like the fact that it provides everything you need and no unnecessary and costly extras. A welcoming atmosphere is v. important, and the current Management Team achieve this well. The GM himself takes part in clearing the breakfast tables, thus making himself visible and available. One can eat plenty at breakfast before the long drive ahead. The absence of the full cholesterol 'English' breakfast #in any case bad for you...# does not deter us. We'll be back

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dazg35 Ideal stopover
The staff are more then accommodating, willing to go out of their way to ensure comfort for all. Check in greeted by very friendly and welcoming staff. Rooms very clean and tidy with nice clean sheets and towels.
Downside is breakfast should have more choice for hot food and main menu could be looked at for kids.
Ideally situated next to motorway and very easy to find. Good parking facilities too.
