    • Good location and useful stopover for Dover ferries. Hotel very clean and bright, great price, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was quiet, the breakfast was ideal and ample choice.

      Bed not too comfortable and drinks a bit expensive.

    • Location ideal for us en route to and from our euro travels, not a bad stop off before heading on to the ferry / tunnel routes to France, the hotel is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is lovely, you can use the internet for free, read the complimentary newspaper.

      Fantastic stay at a low price, staff were good and rooms were freezing cold upon arrival. The coffee was instant and nasty and the dinner menu was very limited.

    • Handy location helpful staff and all in all, not bad for a stop over. Convenient for visiting Canterbury and good price. Much improved customer service and large comfortable room. Complimentary tea and coffee, all the facilities were available as per usual.

      I am disabled the bathroom was not to the standard we expected and menu was very basic and the breakfast was poor.

    • Ideal location for visiting friends and direct on the motorway behind a service station and not at all in Canterbury. Varied and value for money, very helpful and friendly front of house, good price for I needed. We really appreciated the free computers in the lobby and staff were excellent.

      Rooms a little small, pillows hard and dirty towel. Limited choice of evening meals, only scrambled eggs available.

    • Comfortable rooms and location, a taxi to Canterbury central is 10 pounds, the hotel has free wifi access is a bonus. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly, the accommodation is good value, breakfast is a continental breakfast.

      No outside covered seating area for smokers and road a bit too noisy. Quality of food not great, for the price paid there is no adverse critisism and drink a little expensive in bar.
