Greeted with a genuine smile and the staff could not have been more helpful. We were able to take advantage of the large free car park to leave our car for a few days trip via Eurostar and staff called a cab to take us to Ashford International station. Rooms a little tired and dated, however rooms had everything we...

I attended on new years Eve with a group of friends, between us we paid £360 for a shambles of a night, no cider, over priced drinks varying on price depending on who served you or what bar you used and quite obviously adding money on top of advertised prices as it was new years eve.

Two Saturdays ago I made a last minute booking and spent the night in Ashford. The holiday inn central was very close both to the station and where I needed to be on Sunday. The room was clean. The beds were comfortable and the shower power was great. Recommended. Breakfast wasn't bad as there was a lot of variety.

Paid £30 for a work Christmas meal that was the worst meal I have ever been served-akin to old fashioned school dinners. The food was barely edible and it was only terrine, a roast and a lemon tart-so nothing complicated. The company was great and I didn't complain because it would have soured the evening but I would recommend that...
