Welcome to the Holiday Inn Express Folkestone – Channel Tunnel

You lucky thing, you have stumbled across our blog site. On this website you can book a room (direct with the hotel so you’ll always get the best deal) and read our blogs, hints and tips about travelling into Europe through the channel tunnel. We know that packing the family, dog, luggage, travel cot, (kitchen sink) into the car and heading across the channel can be something of a daunting task. But at the Holiday Inn Express Folkestone – Channel Tunnel you can break your journey, relax, recharge and refresh before you venture on. You can even bring your four-legged family members too with our dog friendly packages.

The hotel is located near junction 12 of the M20. Just a mile from the Eurotunnel and 20 minutes drive from Dover Ferry terminal. We’re also only a few minutes drive from Folkestone town centre. Close by you’ll find plenty of things to do including exploring the wartime tunnels, Dover Castle or enjoy seeing gorillas, lions and tigers at Port Lympne Reserve.

If you’re travelling on business you’ll find the hotel equipped with everything you need, whether it’s a meeting space, WiFi or desk to work from.

Your stay with us will always include the Express Start Breakfast which features selected hot items as well as a continental buffet. You can also enjoy a relaxed meal and drink in the evening in our bar.
