        Convenient for visiting friends and relatives with shopping and amenities near by although hotel in quite area.

        Bed not most comfortable with limited bed linen/duvet. Description of site not correct as it does not look out on Kent countryside.

      • Couple

        The room was a standard room, with tea/coffee facilities, included a soap dispenser in shower and by the sink. Bed very comfortable, room was modern, our motorbike was very secure during the night where it was parked. Pizza for dinner tasted good. Quiet location, good nights sleep. Very well located for Euro Tunnel, which we could see from our room window!

        The bathroom toilet in our room really smelled like a men's urinal, which wasn't very nice. The breakfast was quite poor we found, not a great selection, and the scrambled eggs were not very nice at all. I had a glass of juice, when my huband went back for another glass they had diluted it down to make it go further and it was awful. Coffee was not good. But at least I could make my own in room. The reception, bar and restaurant are all just inside the door under the one counter, its tiny, and very very basic. They wouldnt let us pay at the end for everything on checkout so every time we ordered a drink we had to put it on our card, which never worked, the machine kept rejecting and it took ages to pay each time.

        A special thankyou for Elanna who sorted out a mistake made at the time of booking (at the beginning of 2011) by Booked.net - they made the booking for the wrong date and then we were charged for a 'non-show'!

        For the use of traveling and staying close to the dover ferry... this is perfect. The people that work here are all great!! ... and it is always clean and cheerful.

        The location of the hotel for the channel tunnel is excellent, they made us and our dog welcome. It is close to Folkestone so we were able to walk along the sea front in the evening which was both pleasant and relaxing and in the morning it was just a very short drive to the tunnel terminal. All together it provided us with just what we wanted. Thanks.

        Very close to the channel tunnel; breakfast included in the price, which was a bonus. Clean rooms, absolutely fine for a comfortable overnight stay en route to France.

        Your evening/night reception Managers were lively, helpful and very accomodating. We arrived too late to order dinner but the offer of the use of the restaurant for a delivered 'Take Away' was most considerate even to the extent of the Managers recommendations.The Breakfast Bar offered a very good selection and overall our stay was comfortable and efficiently managed.

        We arrived late at night - 9.45pm - in the dark. The address and the postcode even for our sat.nav. proved unlocatable. The general public in Cheriton had no idea where Holiday Inn was. Clearly we found the hotel but lost over half an hour. Please put a map on your website for the Tunnel Hotel in Folkstone!!

        Closeness to Eurotunnel.

        Restaurant/bar area was soulless, food a bit bland.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        The staff are extremely friendly and the hotel is in a good location for the Tunnel. Unfortunately the TV in the room did'nt work and the staff on duty did not know how to reset the "black box". We were offered a complimentary bottle of wine by way of compensation but sadly it did not make up for missing the Paralympics Opening Ceremony.

        No TV!

        The Special Offer rates !! Staff were friendly if you could get them to engage but there seemed too few on duty to cope.

        Bar tables and dinning tables were filthy and cluttered with plates, cutlery and glasses at all times. My clothes stuck to the tables it was so bad. Staff seemed unconcerned about this.I Had to clear my own table and dump dirty crockery and drinks glasses on the reception desk to get any attention. There seemed to be too little staff. The bar optics were broken. All of this in fronmt of coachloads of foreign visitors, goodness knows what they were thinking seeing this.Must do better Iam afraid ! Also this hotel had no nearby amenities, just stuck out in middle of nowhere in desolate fields. It felt like nobody cared about it.

        Great for a stop over to or from the eurotunnel. Staff were excellent and friendly. Rooms were clean, breakfast was good for the price.

        location handy for tunnel

        very limited menu for evening meals and mediocre food staff o.k, but overstretched,

        convenient for the wedding we were attending

        The staff on duty were unhelpful and not obliging to all members of our party ,who were recommended by the wedding venue to use your premises.We had stayed at a premier inn the night previously and the difference in staff helpfulness was quite remarkable.It will be a long time before we use Holiday Inn again.
