Hotels on M2 Motorway and A2 Road

This page covers hotels on M2 motorway and A2 road in England (from London to Canterbury and Dover). I have tried to list the hotels and locations with the most convenient access to M2 or A2 – especially hotels on motorway services and hotels off junctions, but also the best located and driver friendly hotels in cities and towns along the M2/A2 corridor. The locations are sorted from London to Dover.

Hotels on A2 near London

Hotels on A2 Inside M25

Road A2 starts in Central London and goes to the southeast-east to Dartford. A good conveniently located hotel between Central London and Dartford is Holiday Inn London-Bexley, a 4 star hotel off the Black Prince Interchange (A2/Bourne Road). Kids stay and eat free in this hotel.

There are several good hotels near Dartford, which is close to the A2/M25 interchange. However, most of the hotels are located off M25 junction 1, about 1.5-2 miles north of A2.

Hotels on A2 Outside M25

Between M25 and the Medway Towns there are three hotels located immediately off A2. Two of them are close to the Gravesend East junction and Bluewater Shopping Centre:

A few miles further east along the A2, off the next junction, there is Inn On The Lake, a privately owned but quite large hotel with conference facilities and free parking. Although it is immediately next to the A2 road, on the other side there is huge woodland and two lakes.

Additional hotels are located in and near Gravesend city centre, 2-3 miles off A2 road.

Hotels on M2 Motorway near the Medway Towns

A2 road turns into M2 motorway as it arrives to the Medway Towns (Strood, Rochester, Chatham, Gillingham). M2 passes Medway in the east, southeast, and south. This section includes M2 junctions 1-4. There are hotels immediately off junctions 2 and 3:

  • Premier Inn Rochester – off J2, on the riverfront at Rochester’s Medway Valley Leisure Park; free parking, facilities for disabled guests
  • Bridgewood Manor - QHotels – off J3, free parking, free WiFi, great restaurant and spa
  • Holiday Inn Rochester-Chatham – off J3 next to Rochester Airport, free parking, spa and gym, facilities for disabled guests, children under 12 eat free

Here you can search all hotels in the Medway Towns (some of them are a bit further away from M2).

There are also many hotels in Sittingbourne, 2-3 miles off M2 junction 5 on the A2 road.

Hotels on M2 Motorway near Faversham

M2 motorway ends near Faversham, which is accessible through junctions 6 and 7. There are two good hotels in Faversham, although both are a bit further away (1-2 miles) from the M2 junctions (better from J6):

  • Judds Folly Hotel – next to Judd’s Wood off A2 road; free parking, free WiFi
  • The Sun Inn – a 14th century inn, located in the northern part of Faversham; free WiFi, but no official parking

Hotels on A2 near Canterbury

Hotels on A2 West of Canterbury

Better than the two Faversham hotels above in terms of location close to M2/A2 is Holiday Inn Express Canterbury, a very popular 3 star hotel directly on A2 road, halfway between Faversham and Canterbury (in Upper Harbledown, already a bit closer to Canterbury). It offers free parking, free WiFi, free breakfast. There are working desks in the rooms. Most of the surroundings are occupied by woodlands with good hiking and bird watching trails.

Another hotel in Upper Harbledown close to the one above is Oakside Lodge, also with free parking and free WiFi. Its specialty is the breakfast, featuring bacon and sausages from the property’s own pig farm.

Hotels off A2/A28 Junction near Canterbury

There are two 3 star hotels off A2-A28 junction (road A28 connects Canterbury with Ashford):

More hotels are of course in Canterbury city centre, which is only 1 mile from the A2/A28 junction.

Hotels on A2 between Canterbury and Dover

There is one more hotel off A2 still close to Canterbury, accessible through A2/A2050 junction (Dover Road): ; with free WiFi and free parking.

Halfway between Canterbury and Dover there is the hotel that gets the highest customer review score of all hotels on M2/A2: Broome Park Golf & Country Club, currently at the time I am writing this with 9.5/10 on Booking.com. It is located on A260, less than a mile off A2. It features free parking, fitness, sauna, tennis courts, indoor pool, games room, and several other attractions and facilities.

Hotels on A2 Outside Dover

There is a good 4 star hotel in Whitfield, north of Dover, next to the A2 junction with A256 (the other big road that goes from Dover): Ramada Hotel Dover, with free parking, free WiFi, a gym, and a themed restaurant.

Another hotel immediately off A2 and still outside Dover is Premier Inn Dover East, which offers free parking and a wide breakfast selection (English, continental, vegetarian).

M2 Motorway and A2 Road

M2 motorway goes from Rochester, Chatham, and Gillingham to Faversham. Together with A2, it connects south-eastern London with Canterbury and Dover, and it is therefore one of the two main roads from London to France and continental Europe (the other is M20 motorway, which runs parallel to A2/M2 just a few miles to the south-west).
