Rooms clean but small. We stayed her as a family of 4 before we got the Euro tunnel over to France. Staff were very friendly on arrival. Very cheap for a family of 4. Breakfast was a bit dismal though.

We got a good rate by booking ahead and this includes a good breakfast with hot and cold options. In the evening there is a small restaurant but also...

We've stayed here twice and the last time we stayed the experience was not nearly so good. The staff were great but it was very noisy and the breakfast choices had completely changed. It was low quality, especially the sausages. I had ordered a vegetarian option but that wasn't available. People stay here for it's proximity to Eurotunnel, which is...

Just a quick one-night stopover before catching the 0830hrs ferry the next morning. Good price, clean, only 10 minutes' drive from Dover. Breakfast was OK, coffee was good, definitely will use this in future.

One night stay for family function in nearby Hawkinge - most people must stay here for early Channel crossings as breakfast area was practically empty after 9 o'clock - good selection of hot and cold food and drinks and the helpful staff topped up as required.
