Accommodation near channel tunnel

#1 Post by Raymcm » Thu Jul 11, 2019 11:48 pm

I am looking for somewhere decent with secure parking for a night before getting in the Chunnel.

Any suggestions ?

Around £50-70 b&b for 2 would be ok

Thanks

Btw heading from Cairnryan to Folkstone - Ghent - Luxembourg - Stuttgart - Triberg - Bern - then ???

Hopefully on an Electra Glide I'm getting next weekend

I've just booked a twin at the Premier Inn at Ashford Eureka Park for £52. No secure parking mind, although I've been staying there most years with a bunch who ride those big money GS things and nones been nicked so far so it's not too bad.

Premier Inn Ashford Eureka Park is normally my choice too. You can park on the pavement right outside the door to reception.

More importantly... its right outside the Night Staff office (marked)... and is under a camera. if you're apt to overdoing paranoia there are hoops to chain the bike to.

Ask the staff and they may offer you a room that overlooks the carpark.

This year will be our 8th year in a row staying at eureka.. its perfect.

Travelodge at the other end of the place is just as good. so.. stay at either depending on price/availability.
