          Very comfortable room, secure and spacious car park, exc3ellent location.

          we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in this hotel. we were visiting family in folkestone, about 5 minutes away, but appreciate that this hotel is mainly used for travellers to and from france. the location is perfect, being a short distance from the channel tunnel. check in was easy and we found a comfortable and spacious room with a nice bathroom. no bath but the shower was good.buffet breakfast was plentiful, some cooked (sausage, scrambled egg and beans)and some continental (croissants, rolls etc)and all freeof charge.the car park is entered by a barrier so is secure and there is plenty of parking space. we highly recommend this hotel.

          Within 5 minutes of the channel tunnel check-in, this issue very convenient hotel if you're bound for the continent. It's new, reasonably well appointed, and about the price you'd expect. A little impersonal, but the staff is friendly and helpful, and reasonably close to shops and restaurants.

          Five minutes from the Channel Tunnel

          very handy if you are getting an early train to france. rooms are adequate. beds are comfortable. bar has free wifi, but you have to pay for wifi in your room. breakfast is served between 6 - 10. buffet style, cereals, toast, eggs, sausages etc. this is free for all customers, even though on agoda is says breakfast is not provided. sat nav places the hotel in the wrong spot. just keep driving down the road alongside tescos, and the hotel is on the left.

          Excellent convenient hotel for channel crossings.”

          Great hotel near the motorway junction and only 12 minutes from Dover. It is clean, modern, comfortable and convenient with good car parking. The only drawback was the difficulty of finding it first time. The address had no number on the street address, so we ended up in Folkstone when it was actually very close to the motorway. we will know next time.
