Stay among apple orchards and traditional English "oast" houses when you book at one of our Holiday Inn® Ashford hotels. Tree-lined streets flanked by medieval and Tudor buildings bustle with shoppers while the nearby Eurostar speeds visitors to the continent.
Set in the heart of the English countryside, Ashford's ancient center buzzes with the modern conveniences of 21st-century life. Visitors and locals pass by one of the few remaining First World War era tanks as they browse the wide selection of independent shops or head for coffee in a street-side cafe. Minutes from our Ashford hotels is the New Mill at Willesborough, a fully functioning Victorian windmill and now a fascinating museum filled with vintage bicycles and mopeds. Henry VIII's former home at Leeds Castle is just a short drive from our hotels in Ashford. With its fairy-tale turrets and deep moat, this is to many the quintessential English castle.
Ashford's small town center is crammed with lively cafes serving fast and affordable light lunches. The local pubs, which pride themselves on their warm welcome, make cozy spots to settle in for a long evening of dining and sipping pints of traditional "real ale"-unfiltered cask-conditioned beer. Bargain hunters make a beeline for the deeply discounted goods at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet, a center for 80 designer brands and close to our Ashford hotels.
Book into one of our Ashford hotels to experience this vibrant historic town and its leisure-time pleasures. Venture out from our Ashford hotels into rural Kentish for hikes in the countryside and tasting tours at Biddenden Vineyards, which is putting English sparkling wines on the map and producing that most English of beverages, cider.
Builders were in after a wait of three months. Our house was unavailable for three days, but our local out-of-town HI were able to offer a warm place to stay with room service full board, unlike some[More] others I contacted. Thanks to all involved for your kindness and understanding.[Less]

My week stop off.
My room was a great size and the staff were great through this challenging time. The food was great, although a revised menu on offer. the telephone did not work in my room and I had to walk to[More] reception to order food as you have to have it delivered and eat it in your room. the carpet going into the bathroom was threadbare and I stood on a carpet gripping piece the stabbed me in the toe. The tap in the bathroom leaked and dripped all night.[Less]
Great facilities and very friendly staff
The staff very very helpful and friendly and always greet you with a smile. The food and facilities were great too. The room was very tidy and clean, apart from food left in the fridge from the[More] previous guests which were missed. I believe it was an honest mistake and by no means a deal breaker for me. I will definitely return again![Less]

Good Location and Facilities
Used many times, good standard and recently decorated. Would prefer earlier check in and later check out so we have time to use leisure facilities.
Good location for discovering Kent and surrounding[More] area and right next door to Rochester airport but bedrooms are still very quiet and relaxing[Less]
