We used this hotel as a stopover before travelling to France. It is convenient for Dover and Folkestone in terms of ferry or tunnel travel.
We didn't have breakfast due to an early start but had a couple of drinks in the bar in the evening. It's a little brightly lit and impersonal but is fairly typical of HI Express bars.
Staff extremely friendly and helpful.

Arrived at the hotel and checked in. We were advised we would have to make dinner reservations if we wanted to have a meal in the restaurant there. We made reservations for 7 pm. We went to the lobby at 6 pm to have a predinner beverage. We sat there for on hour. During this time there was a table of about six or so and another table of three seated in the restaurant. They received their food just a few minutes before 7 and when y had everything, the waiter came over to inform us that he could seat us now as the others were eating. Prior to this, a couple had been turned away from the restaurant because it was supposedly fully booked. We didn't understand this as most tables were empty. We sat down at our table and the waiter asked what we would like. He had not given us menus so we asked for those. As he is handing them to us, he informed us the beef pie was sold out. No more available. That was the only reason we had decided to eat there. Seemed funny that the couple seated next to us that came in after us didn't order at the table but we noticed they got a beef pie dinner. They were also very familiar with the staff so we assumed they were allowed to preorder their meal. Wish I had known that. We chose the burger meal instead. Burgers were frozen patties and cooked so much they were dried out. This meal took approximately 45 minutes to get and we were very disappointed with it. Ate it only because we were so hungry at that point. If we ever go back, we will just eat the bar food. Almost the same menu and those were served faster. Not sure what was going on with this restaurant but something wasn't right with the service. Breakfast was the same as every other Holiday Inn we stayed at. Not very much selection. Everything else with the hotel was fine and Folkestone is a nice little town with a few interesting places to visit. Really loved the poppies on the iron fence. What a great way to recognize those that stand up for us.
