Whenever I'm looking for a city break my first instinct is "BARCELONA!". My second is "BERLIN!". My third is "PRAGUE!"... actually this might be a very long review, I'll skip a few. My 387th instinct is "ASHFORD!". This is a Holiday Inn located there. It's fine enough.

Stayed the night for work, clean rooms, very comfortable beds. Staff very nice and helpful. Milk on my treat trolley was off and it took them less than 5 minutes to bring fresh one. Definitely a repeat place - always on the first floor, afraid there's no lift!

This is our usual stopover on our trips to Ashford. It's in a great location and easily accessed from the M20. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and the rooms are always clean and comfortable. It is getting a bit tired and worn in areas, and there's no lift (disappointing in a hotel of this size and standard) but...

I stayed there for a weekend whilst attending a conference in the area. The hotel was pretty empty (judging by the number of cars parked overnight). The rooms were standard fayre that you would expect from Holiday Inn. My safe was not working in the room and I reported it on my way to the conference next morning at reception...

We arrived late Friday evening after bad traffic on the way. Check in was smooth, room ok but the paint work is tired in places, the room could really do with repainting. The room was spacious and quiet and a good place to spend the night before heading to the channel tunnel.

Only stayed for one night but would happily book again. Room was very and clean. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was lovely, nice selection. Location was ideal, even though you can hear the traffic when outside the hotel you can't hear it at all inside.

Thought we would give this another try. Still think this is a tired hotel. It is definitely in need of some sprucing. The room was comfortable. The staff were lovely. The ambiance is what is missing. The structure really needs a makeover. The trouble with hotels inevitably is that they date and become very expensive to update. The service is...

Stayed here the night before going on the Eurostar. I could leave my car in the car park which was very handy and it's only a 5 minute taxi ride to the station. Really liked the hotel. Nice rooms, clean and spacious. The bar was nice too with good food. Found the staff to be very polite and helpful too....

This is a below average Holiday Inn that needs some TLC. On my overnight visit in January the front desk was empty and after a while a friendly lady appeared and checked my in before disappearing again. As I needed to check something I had to again wait for her to emerge from the back office. I guess the reason...

Great place to stay in the Ashford area with excellent staff particularly in the bar and restaurant. The restaurant food is good, although as one would expect, it's a little high on price - Lamb Shank is recommended at £17.50. The restaurant is a lovely old barn - not sure if it is original on this site or a reconstruction,...
