Holiday Inn Express Canterbury

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

On check-in, we were advised that our adjoining rooms were no longer adjoining as the toilet wouldn't flush in the one we were assigned. The new room however had a toilet which ran continuously and wouldn't stop. The carpets were badly stained. The door key to one of the rooms had to be reset 3 times before it worked. This place has serious maintenance problems. Beware of motorway noise. Requested a late checkout as the 12 noon checkout time was going to be difficult for a disabled 86 year old guest using a walker. Desk manager stated that it would only be possible to get a 1 pm (1 hour extension) for 30 GBP! She stated that it was "company policy" which is complete baloney. "My policy" is to no longer use hotels which employ managers without an iota of common sense or concern for customer service. When we left, the parking lot was virtually empty, so extending a single guest room for an hour was clearly not going to be putting a serious imposition on the cleaning staff or impair a non-existent rush on rooms from the next day's guests.

This Holiday Inn was a great option for a weekend stay. Close to town by short drive and had all the essentials.

A good hotel but to far out of town with taxi the only way to get there, if you have a car no problem. Dinner only served during the week, week ends you are on your own.

Hotel is distant from the urban area with limited services nearby, such as restaurants. Due to the bank holiday the menu selection at the hotel restaurant was limited, but what was available was good.
