H. M. Families - 23/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Disappointed with room cleaning and replenishment of tea/coffee etc. No one came into our room at all during our stay. Complained and asked for part-refund and told to complain to Booking.com as that is who we booked with. They said they would get back to us after listening to our complaint, but so far they have totally ignored us. Hopeless service all round.

Lyn19c Solo - 21/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Arrived after 10hrs driving..exhausted and emotional..reception staff great..helped me and gave me a drink. Needed room service as had small dog with me…..menu atrocious…burgers, sandwiches and pizza..all extremely overpriced …£6.00 for 2 slices of bread with egg and cress and a lettuce leaf..£16.50 for an overdone tasteless burger….add some of the restaurant items, even if only up until 10pm….what difference does it make if served to a room or in the restaurant. Staff good again. Room was STUFFY AND in SERIOUS need of redecorating and updating….overhead light was full of dead flies..disgusting and all for £199 plus F&B plus dog charge…..not worth a third of that! If not for situation and staff I would have left! Will bever stay again

Andrew Families - 21/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Receptionist on arrival extremely rude and unhelpful, room was not ready and when we got to room was unclean and looks very dated, sink tap did not work, tiles mouldy and falling off wall. Was overall disappointing and would not recommend. Please teach your receptionists to be a little more customer focused. Room keys stopped working constantly in two days had 10 keys. Overall experience was not great and very expensive for what it is.

Carol Families - 20/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed 2 nights as a family wedding was taking place on sight at the hotel. The facilities are good but the building and rooms are very tired and in need of an overhaul and update. My room was ok but the curtains were tatty with lots of holes worn in them, tv was damaged, carpets stained. My room was not made up in between the 2 nights, so I had no clean towels, not fresh cups etc.

Helena Business - 20/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Excellent. The only downside was the wi fi and the fact that I was woken by staff dumping glass waste outside between 11.45pm and midnight. I was definitely not happy about that!

Room too hot

Customer review rating 1.5/5

P N. Families - 20/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

When I entered the room I thought the heating was on, it was not, it was the sun shine on the very large window and even with the window open as far as possible and the curtains drawn it was too hot to remain in the room in the late afternoon so I had to sit in the bar area. Also the bed, the mattress was firm but it sloped to the left so it felt like I was falling out of bed. Maybe turn the mattress over.

Spacious room, pleasant staff and good breakfast. Dreadful evening dinner experience! Meal ordered 6.30 and we were there two and a half hours for 2 simple courses. Food okay but intolerable waits. Eventually the embarrassed waiter explained there were only 2 staff in the kitchen...

Steve H 06/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Was trying to get away for a relaxing night whilst in between travelling visiting Leeds Castle. Unfortunately leisure facilities were not up to standard to be used as informed that changing rooms were to be shared by males and females. Large area of the hotel being used as a court facility so some no go areas. None of this was drawn to our attention at time of booking and or on checking in! To top it all, went to bed late (2am) with the intention of getting a good 8 hours, getting up at 10am and checking out by 11am. GREATER PLANS and all that were destroyed when a WINDOW CLEANER decided to start washing the rooms windows just after 8am! NOT HAPPY! Reported to reception and was advised manager would be made aware, FURTHER DISAPPOINTMENT as nothing heard off manager, NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

Exceeded expectations all-round.

AlwaysNearWalls 31/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

We booked this hotel for an overnight close to the Channel Tunnel. I chose it primarily for its location and being part of the Accor chain which I trust. However, we were really pleasantly surprised. The rate and location were both excellent as we knew, but the pleasant surprise came from the grounds, the hotel itself, the food and the staff all of which exceeded expectations. Some guests were a bit noisy through the night, but it was a wedding party on a Friday night, so not totally unreasonable and it didn't go on too late. I would happily stay here again when travelling through the tunnel and have no hesitation recommending it.
