good value for eurotunnel hotel
We have stayed in a holiday inn express before and werent too impressed that time but we were going to France by euro tunnel and wanted a hotel as near as possible so we booked a room . We were both happy with the hotel's position, you cant get much nearer the tunnel than this hotel. Our room was ready even though we arrived a little early,we were on 3rd floor and had a view of the chalk horse figure in the field opposite and not much else as the area is kind of industrial. We were close to the motorway as others have said and it was quite noisy with the window open but with them closed the sound was not too intrusive and we both slept soundly. The bed was very comfortable and we had all we needed in the room,heater/air con unit, nice shower, tv and coffee making facility. As we had an early start time in the morning we went for breakfast quite early and the choice was very good,sausages,scrambled eggs,baked beans for me, croissants for my partner, plenty of toast and preserves and juices,coffee or tea. We both thought the breakfast,though maybe not the biggest choice ever, was very good.
Overall we would say the hotel is perfect if you are off to France and need a room for the night. Good price,clean and nice room and fairly good food, we didnt try the bar but it looked ok.

Value for money
Lovely clean hotel. Very good value for money. Only criticisms would be the bathroom not very family friendly ( we bath our children ) and breakfast not very good quality due to cooked food being left in hot trays and overcooked.

Perfect if you are doing a crossing and a great place to park and life share
I was meeting three colleagues and taking the tunnel crossing early the next day. We were meeting from different ends of the country so it made sense to crash here and cross first thing. Staff we very good, rooms fine although we had some issues with the WiFi. You can park here at £7.50 per day which is good value up to most other places. Breakfast was fine. It's a simple, very tidy hotel in a perfect location less than 10 minutes from the crossing. At what it does it does well.

Pretty Good
Never stayed before in an Holiday Inn extra, fastest check-in ever, less than 3 minutes. Room was clean and great for a late night arrival and early morning start.
