Great place to stay if you're visiting a student at one of the Canterbury universities. A littl distance out of Canterbury but its an easy driving distance and great value for money. Only dissapointment was no bacon or hash browns with the breakfast. Thats a minor point though and would certainly stay again.

Lovely hotel. Room and bathroom spotless. The shower was really good . Staff extremely friendly. They take dogs which is why I tend to go to Holiday Inn Express as most of them do accommodate dogs ,whereas Holiday Inns go not. We could take the dog to breakfast as long as we were not on the carpeted area. Breakfast was...

The hotel is as you would expect from a Holiday inn express. Functional and clean. However my biggest gripe with the basement rooms (at least) is the stench of cigarettes on what I think is a non smoking floor. I'm sat in my room as I type this, closest to the window and away from the corridor. All you can...

Dear Simon Thank you for your review and bringing this to our attention. We are a no smoking hotel as you so correctly say however some guests demonstrate a lack of consideration for others. When we catch them we take steps. I can only apologize and say we will in such circumstances try to offer an alternative room. Best wishes...

Here on business and stayed for 1 night. It was what was needed. Spotlessly clean, tidy and well appointed rooms. Good bathroom with good shower. Bed was comfortable but a bit on the hard side. The ac unit worked and I could open the window. Breakfast was standard HIE but was hot. No restaurant on site so the place was...

Although called HIE Ramsgate it is actually five miles from Ramsgate at Minster next to the airfield. Having said that it is a pleasant enough hotel with plenty of space, friendly and knowledgeable staff and a reasonable free breakfast. We were there during a mild spell and we had a problem keeping the room cool enough. If we left the...

Booked 2 rooms for myself and my family this NYE. Arrived back at hotel at 2:30 to find the bar area and outside seating area full of loud, drunken young adults. Somewhat to be expected as this was NYE, however what is not acceptable is to have them roaming the corridors INSIDE the corridoors, shouting, laughing and knocking on what...

Dear Mr Hardy I am really very sorry to hear you had such an unemployable stay on New years Eve. It is truly regrettable that you were disturbed by an inconsiderate fellow guest. As you are aware I rang you earlier today and we discussed the situation. You describe quite a noisy hotel with guests running up and down corridors....

Came here in October, arrived and was given our rooms, I asked for double rooms and got single beds! After a shower we got ready to go out.
