Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 213 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Short stop Handy for Bexleyheath visit and convenient access from the A2 and M25 November 7, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Unusually poor experience Having stayed at this property before and having a good experience, I was disappointed to have had a series of issues this time. The night before we were due to arrive, we were calling the hotel to request an early check in as our flight was arriving into London very early. We were staying at the hotel for a wedding so was keen to get into the room early. The hotel was non-responsive and the central team didn't help us. When we finally got through, we were advised attempts would be made and it should be fine. When we arrived, the front desk team advised systems were down. They were working manually and did a great job and kept calm and professional. We were given an early check in so all started well. The room smelled musty, was hot and windows were open. We closed the windows and put on the air conditioning. The AC clearly wasn't working. It kept shutting itself off and would reset back to 22 degrees. I was trying to get ready quickly for a wedding in a room that was far too hot and this made for a frustrating experience for me and my partner. we ordered room service to have a bite to eat before the wedding and again, this was very disappointing. My partner ordered the lasagne which was all dried out and the garlic bread was soggy. I ordered the chilli, which itself was good, but the rice was all dried out and the tortilla chips were soggy. I could have understood a delay on the food with the systems being down but there is no excuse for poor food quality and cooking standards. We both had a terrible sleep due to the room being too hot with the AC not working and when we opened the window to attempt to cool the place down, the noise from the main road outside the window kept us up. I would suggest anyone staying do not accept room 12. And I would advise to request a room not facing the main road (rooms 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 as far as I'm aware). I would have shared this feedback upon checkout if we'd actually been asked how our stay was. We weren't asked once. Next time I'm in the area visiting family, I'll be staying at a different hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hospitable team Stayed here on number of the occasions and always found that team in Bexley is very friendly and welcoming. Any request or questions is never a trouble for them. Good location, nice food and comfy beds. Definitely coming back. November 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable rooms, good food Rooms are as you would expect for Holiday Inn, comfortable but not flashy, although personally would love a plug socket next to the bed. Restaurant has improved immeasurably over the last few years, now serving top quality fresh, interesting yet familiar November 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wedding Reception Organisation was excellent. Staff very accommodating and the food, which was superb, was served very professionally. We were very happy and our guests all enjoyed the evening. November 2, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ok for last minute business booking Stopped one night, staff were very friendly, however hotel room shabby with stained carpets and walls. Room also very small but nice bathroom Area very noisy with road traffic and youths shouting until late into the evening Extremely expensive wifi but gave option of free if you downloaded apps, tried but never worked it out Nice breakfast but had to pay for parking Would only stop here again if no alternative November 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleasant stay Overall very pleased with this hotel. Only stayed for one night but no issues and staff were very friendly and helpful. We needed a bed made up for my son as the on-line booking didn't properly allow us to do this - I asked at the reception and the lady was there to do it within a few minutes. Also I asked for an iron and one was brought almost immediately. October 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Black Prince Stay Close to London with easy access via Blackwall Tunnel.This hotel is looking rather tired and is in need of an update especially in the restaurant and bar areas. We noticed patches of leak staining on the restaurant ceiling despite the very low lighting.We had the impression that the food was simply reheated and not cooked on the premises. The bedroom was comfortable but again in need of redecoration (peeling ceiling and cracked floortiles). October 30, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Food I ordered an evening meal and after 1 hour I had still not received my food so I complained to the duty manager and yes he did sort the problem out and to my satisfaction but I feel this incident shouldn't of happened in the first place. The hotel is starting to show its age and needs updating. I would not stay here again. October 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OK for a short stay I arrived in Bexley by rail and walked to the hotel which took about 15 minutes. As it is situated in the centre of a very busy interchange/roundabout getting to it can be difficult at peak periods. Reception staff were friendly and helpful, room was comfortable and clean with adequate furnishing. The bar staff were friendly and helpful but the service was slow and not very professional. It took quite a while for me to attract the attention of a member of staff and order a bar snack and drinks by which time quite a queue had developed. Food quality and portion size were good but as with most Holiday Inns the price of drinks was ridiculous. All in all a pleasant stay but could be improved vastly with a little training and thought. October 11, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Room for Improvement Room smelt of stale smoke despite being a non-smoking hotel. stained mug and grubby spoons. Bathroom fittings could do with an upgrade. October 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best nights sleep in a hotel This hotel whilst situated adjacent to very busy A2 is a very peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The beds were so comfortable with choice of pillow firmness. Best nights sleep for a long time. Service and food very good. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay We arrived at 6.00pm and were greeted by a pleasant and efficient member of staff. Room was small but perfectly adequate for our quick overnight stay. Had lovely clean cotton sheets and white fluffy towels, my main criteria. Had a good nights sleep and then went down for breakfast which was excellent. Buffet service with very good choice and lovely and hot. Would definitely stay again and recommend. September 17, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good Location Only Like all Holiday Inns its expensive for food and drink, but its only a short walk from Bexley Village where there are some decent pubs and restaurants. The rooms are normally ok, although its been a while since the hotel has had any work done on it. There have been occasions where the towels are dirty and hairs in the bath etc. If you need to work when you get there though dont rely on the standard free (for Platinum Members), it works, but only just and it can take up to 5 minutes to get one email sent. The pay internet is like the food and drink, expensive so make other arrangements if you need internet connection. Overall its got a handy location and the staff are lovely, but you cant class it as anymore than a bed for the night in my view September 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by An Oasis in Home Counties Stood out as best experience in a recent trip to UK for Staff friendliness service and value September 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheery staff This was our fourth or fifth visit. Reception staff were very cheery when we arrived which was nice after being held up on the M25 for several hours. All staff were helpful at all times and always spoke and said hello when passing in the hotel. September 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best receptionist I stay at this hotel on a semi-regular basis and am usually disappointed with my check-in experience here but Roza made up for all that on this last occasion - I thought I was in a totally different hotel. Roza was warm and friendly with a big smile and very informative. The breakfast staff were also very friendly. September 9, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by info staff need to be aware to ask people to be quite after midnight as other guest are asleep have staff check on people go to there rooms to keep noise down where possible .....The bar staff was very helpful September 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by perfect stay this was an overnight stay to attend a family function close by. It is the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel and look forward to returning September 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Familienbesuch Spitze, alle sehr freundlich, Betten super, günstiger als Jugendherberge, super Verbindung nach London mit dem Zug September 3, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Staff best asset at this hotel The room was a little 'tired'. The bathroom furniture needed updating. The shower head look as though it had been there since the 70's. The bathroom ceiling was badly stained and required painting. The bed duvet felt very well used along with the pillows. The lift which serviced our room 129 had grease or oil trickling down the ground floor door. The thing we considered to be the best asset at this hotel was the staff. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent stay with friendly staff Stayed for a friends wedding which was near by and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed August 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ideal situation for motorway convenience. This hotel is easily accessible from M25 South of Dartford but has the advantage of being near to local amenities and public transport. The expectations of Holiday Inn facilities and features are fully delivered, with attentive and friendly personnel. Wider beds would be of benefit for a better night's sleep if for 'double' occupancy. August 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Servive We found that the Hotel was more than we expected. Quite comfortable, did not use the dining facilities as we had an early morning start and used the Park and stay facility. We used a taxi to take us to Ebbsfleet International - rather expensive for a 15 minute journey. Would be nice if the hotel made arrangments for transfers and kept the costs down. August 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smokers The only "complaint" I really have is that smokers, of which I am one, do not seem capable of walking a couple of steps to use the facilities provided to dispose of their cigarette ends, thereby creating a mess by the main entrance door. August 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A good place to stay Friendly and helpful reception staff who remembered my choice of newspaper from previous visits and arranged for a backup copy in case the first was 'accidentally' picked up by another guest. I was particularly impressed by a member of the bar staff who found a quiet corner for me to work in and meet a colleague. She also provided the all essential extension lead for my laptop without being prompted. These might appear small things but they do demonstrate the excellent level of customer care which is so evident at this hotel. August 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable stay We stayed for 3 days and found our stay comfortable. Parking charge seems unfair and breakfast very expensive especially if you do not require full English. Leaky sink plug annoyed my husband when shaving. It is a hotel near a family member so we may use again. I was visiting Cambridge also but all hotels full there. Journey was not too bad. August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good service Service upon arrival was excellent, the staff being very pleasant August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flexibility Staff at Reception were very helpful and switched our room to a more conveniently located one on arrival. August 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Efficient and friendly staff Very efficient and friendly welcome at the reception. Good location for public transport (buses and trains). Easy walking distance to Bexley Village. August 12, 2014
