Lovely staff & tidy but really noisy plumbing!

Despite it being clean and the staff being friendly, I wouldn't rush back as I found the room noisy, like someone was constantly vacuuming just outside the door (they weren't, I checked!) plumbing was also very loud and the angle of the floor length mirror reflected and magnified the light from the wide gap under the door so it wasn't that dark with the lights out.

Quick stay near Dartford, London

Pros: Clean and very close to where we needed to visit
Cons: Cheaper drinks!
Location: Very close to Dartford bridge and Bluewater shopping centre
Smart hotel very near the exit of the Dartford bridge - ideal for where we needed. Staff very pleasant. Had hoped to have a bath - sadly only a shower but nice room none the less. Down side was getting a drink £6.89 for a Gin & tonic!! Yikes!

overnight stay

Pros: Room was very clean and modern, more than adequate for a 1 or 2 night stay. Breakfast was included and was ample
Cons: Triple glazing on the rooms at the front...road noise from Dartford Bridge could be hear through the night.....my only niggle though
Location: 10 minute drive from Bluewater...easy access to major motorways
Booked this as we had to drop a parcel to someone in Gravesend so thought we'd combine this with a visit to Bluewater and an overnight stay...especially as snow was forecast!!

business stay for 2 nights

Posted Dec 10, 2016
Pros: Staff were friendly and helpful. WIFI appeared to be good.
Cons: Access to the car park. Dartford bridge roundabout is a disaster to go "around" to get to hotel car park, took 15 minutes to go 200 yards both nights
Location: N/A traffic at roundabout made up my mind so didn't go out after reaching hotel.
Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Fire doors can be noisy when closing (they tend to slam shut into position, good to know they work but annoying when other guests make their way to their room at 2 am would advise to get a room a fair distance away from the fire doors if possible).

Great location for Bluewater

4 out of 5
Posted Dec 6, 2016
Pros: The location, the friendly and efficient staff, excellent value for money.
Stayed one night for a shopping/leisure trip to Bluewater. The hotel is in an excellent location for this with ample free parking. We asked for a quiet room which we got overlooking the back of the hotel and we didn't hear a sound. The room was quite basic but had everything we needed for an overnight stay. The shower was powerful and spacious. We had a meal in the hotel restaurant which was very good. Breakfast was basic but good. Nicely presented and cooked food was hot. Recommended.

Pros: Modern, clean & comfotable.
Cons: Food options were limited for both dinner & breakfast.
Location: Great location for Bluewater & Lakeside.
Great sized sofa bed for teenager. Air con a bonus as not usually in this price range. Evening meal expensive but disappointing. Breakfast free but no mushrooms, tomatoes or hash browns (vegetarian). But...Good for price we paid for 3 (£60) b & b.

Great staff

Pros: Staff were so friendly.
Cons: Parking lot is monitored by cameras. 100 pound fines are issued if you or your guest fail to self register your car. It's a money grab.
Clean, comfortable, friendly staff Self registering of car sounds simple enough, but it's was easily overlooked by visiting friends. The parking lot is not useful to anyone not staying or visiting hotel so abuse of parking by non patrons is extremely unlikely. This was the only negative as staff were excellent and hotel was very good.

Great hotel for staying the night

5 out of 5
by from Lansing, Michigan
Posted Sep 4, 2016
Pros: USB charging, breakfast, quiet room
Cons: There are too many doors in the hallway, the room door was very hard to open. Smell of smoke from another room too easily came into my room.
Location: There are many food choices.
Stayed a night to catch the early morning Eurostar. Was easy and comfortable. The room was a nice temperature and very clean when we arrived. USB plugs were by the bed, very convenient. The free breakfast is like any other holiday inn, better than a lot of other hotels. The room door was really hard to open and that was annoying, it's like the carpet is too tall to give clearance, but my 2 year old couldn't open it so that makes it more positive! The road entrance is a bit out of the way but easy enough after you figure it out.
