Located near the A2 but without the constant road noise. Friendly staff. Denise is an absolute gem and she and her colleagues go the extra mile to make the stay a pleasant one. More than a premier Inn

The hotel stay itself was fine however the customer service was terrible. We had to wait half an hour to even be acknowledged by a staff member to just take our order, and also had to wait a long time for the food to arrive and when it did finally arrive the food was undercooked, the staff and the chef were extremely rude to the extent that we had to leave without having our breakfast.

Hi there Thanks for taking the time to share your review. I'm pleased to hear you had no problems with your stay in October, however I'm sorry to see the service provided in the restaurant wasn't up to our usual standards and that you chose to leave without breakfast due to this, this certainly isn't the experience we want for our guests. I've passed your comments on to the Restaurant Manager so they can follow this up internally with their teams and they'll implement any actions and retraining to ensure your experience isn't repeated. I apologise for the disappointment and hope this hasn't put you off staying with us in future. Kind Regards Amy

I must admit I am not a Premier Inn customer,as this was only my second ever stay. However had to stay here due to a work Course close by. Yesterday I checked on the website and it said restaurant was open with very limited menu. Of course this is wrong due to Kent being in Tier 3 restrictions. When you see something wrong in the room you then doubt the cleanliness of the rest of the room I have just removed 3 large cobwebs over the bed. Let’s say I will not be looking under the bed! Would not come back.

Good afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. I'm sorry to hear that the website didn't state that the restaurant would be closed and we will be passing on your feedback regarding this. I'm also sorry to hear that you found your room not to be cleaned to the standards you would expect finding cobwebs. We will be passing on your feedback to the hotel management team to make sure rooms are being cleaned to the standard you would expect going forward. Please accept our apologies again for any inconvenience caused and we do hope that you can give us another chance in the future. Kind regards, James

The staff member was very welcoming on arrival and the hotel is very Covid safe, with a signposted one way system in place, masks worn by staff and guests, and hand sanitizers available in the public areas. Our room at the front of the building was called a "new room" by the receptionist and certainly it was in perfect condition and very clean, with a large comfortable bed. The hotel restaurant area was not fully open due to the Covid situation, but there are other restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk of the hotel

We needed accommodation as we were sadly attending a funeral in the area, so just wanted somewhere that was handy and functional. However, from the start the experience was very impressive. The reception staff were exceptionally welcoming and helpful and the room was immaculate, roomy and comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was very nice and great value. This hotel is better than many several times the price per night - well done.
