Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The hotel has parking, which is an added bonus, especially as there is Limited parking in the area. Checking in service very cheerful and efficient. We were showed to our room. As we were getting an early eurotunnel train, a continental takeaway breakfast was provided. This was very nice and fresh, with cinnamon bun, croissant with butter, jam & marmalade, muffin, apple and orange juice box. Room was clean, airy, not too warm and a good size with twin beds, large bathroom with toiletries, tea & coffee facilities and TV. The room was quiet. The bed was comfortable. Highly recommend. We always stay here the night before we travel to France, as it is only 10 minutes from the Eurotunnel.
