OK this isn't a 5 star resort in The Bahamas where you'll sepnd 2 weeks but for what most people use it for , the hotel is amazing. We always use it as a one night stop over for the tunnel. Its very clean, comfortable, cheap. The staff are VERY efficient, friendly and never any hiccups. 24 hour check-in means if you get struck in traffic , you know room will still be waiting. It's 2 minutes from the tunnel entrance. Cannot recommend enough for short stay relating to tunnel trips .

We stayed here for one night with our dog before taking Euro tunnel. We were allocated a ground room for the dog which was comfy and had enough space for him. All the staff were really friendly and our dog was given a couple of doggy treats on check in. We had dinner in hotel as allowed for to come which was fab. The food wasn’t great but the convenience and price were very good for us, definitely recommend

Usually stay at the Premier Inn when visiting family in Folkstone, but not any more! Will now stay at this Hotel for all future visits. Room was very nice. Bed was huge and very comfortable. Fresh and clean smell in the room. Breakfast was basic but adequate. Staff were friendly and helpful. It all felt very comfortable. Parking was good. Tesco and Morrisons was nearby. Easy access to Folkestone.

We stayed here for the night before we got on the euro shuttle. It is very conveniently located with only a 5 minute drive to the terminal and a tesco store with petrol station 1 minute down the road. We read that it was dog friendly and were worried whether that just meant little dogs (so many are) but we need not have worried as our two giant breed dogs were made to feel more than welcome and were little celebs with the hotel team. We will definitely stay again if we are in the area
