    I always use the Travelodge about 2 junctions up the motorway. Book early enough and you can get a room for £19.
    There are a couple of generic places to eat and just over the motorway via the roundabout there's a supermarket where you can fill up with fuel so you don't keep anyone waiting in t'other side.

    GS Bloke, you're welcome to stay at my house on the Friday night if you want, I'm about ten mins from the Tunnel. Garage for the bike. Obviously this offer doesn't apply if you're an axe murderer, a predatory pervert or an illegal immigrant!

    PM me if you want.
    I'm tired of giving a reason when the future is what we believe in.

    Last year I stopped overnight for a Wander, prior to the tunnel, in the Chandos Guest House in Folkestone CT20 1DG. Owner is a biker and has designed his front gate to allow motorcycles to enter the front garden and live under the front window overnight. Cheap, clean and cheerful (and showing at £25 for Friday 14th March at the moment on Laterooms http://www.laterooms.com/en/hotel-re...olkestone.aspx ), breakfast was good for an extra £4 and was worth it for me, coming down from Yorkshire

    This is of course assuming you don't fit Robin's criteria!!

    Andy (Alleycam) thank you for your tip on the B&B. I often get asked for ideas on where bods might stay, so I have saved it for the future..... Chainsaw killers and those with highly infectious skin diseases, I send to Robin's.

    Hi Robin, most kind of you to offer, maybe I should have waited a little longer before paying for digs, maybe next time , also my axe is pretty blunt at the moment due to some noisy locals

    ditto. done! Booked! Sorry, what does the "passenger experience thing" mean?" Not been on the Chunnel before so bit lost in translation. Do we all meet this side or just board and then meet at the petrol station on t other side?

    I think he means the terminal building (UK side), we park up outside and meet within.
