    Easy access and clean comfortable room.

    The food available for supper was awful - I ordered chicken curry and it was made with the bitty dark meat from a chicken and didn't taste remotely like curry, it was very disappointing. The poppadom was oily and the mango chutney tasteless...

    Excellent value for money and conveniently placed for Canterbury and the M2

  • Older travelers

    Hotel clean and still quite new. Lots of free parking space. Handy for Canterbury and surrounding areas. Probably a good overnight stop if you live in the North of the UK and are using the Channel Tunnel or the Ferries and want to break the journey. Staff friendly. Breakfast now seems to be included in room rate (Best to check though.).

    Guest room walls carry sound to neighbouring rooms. (Got woken up on last night by loud drunken guests coming into next room at 3.30 a.m.)

    Location is very close to the motorway. Still we did not have any trouble with noise. Staff was very friendly and helpfull.

    Computer system was down, payment was taken upon arrival but receipt/invoice was not given to me. I had to ask for it the next morning, rather than being put through the door immediately after processing as promised by hotel staff

    A very comfortable night was had and a good breakfast to start the day.Enjoyable and easy to find!

    good clean room and facilities. Nice breakfast but quite busy at certain times.

  • Older travelers

    Convenient alongside the A2, better to stay in than around Dover when using the cross channel ferry. About five minutes from Canterbury city car parks. A good small city to visit with plenty of eating places, as well as, the Cathedral, Castle walls and pedestrian area of old buildings.

    Travelling from Dover on the A2 the signage is poor to find the hotel

    Staff were helpful

    A long way from town and not well signposted

  • Couple
    9.2

    Staff were very obliging and helpful. The rooms were large and well appointed and very quiet despite being next to the motorway.

    Access is a little tricky as you need to be on a certain side of the motorway

    The hotel was chosen from previous experience and location, being close to the Channel Tunnel. It was just as expected, clean,comfortable and a good location for our needs.

  • Older travelers

    It was very close to Canterbury, thre room was great and the staff very helpfuln infact you could not have wished for more.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The beds at the Holiday Inn Express Canterbury are more comfortable than any other hotel of the same class in the area.

    We thought the choice at breakfast has reduced since our last visit last year. The cooked breakfast only consisted of sausages and scrambled egg. And the buffet only had a choice of peaches and grapefruit, my wife would have liked prunes.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Good value for money, clean room but small, excellent breakfast.

    Bit far from town, difficult to find when coming from Canterbury first time.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The staff were very helpfull,room very clean, excellent value for money.evening meal served over three hours so no pressure to return early evening for meal. food excellent.

    Would have liked more blankets and softer pillows. We did find the room a little cold.
