Doesn't get any closer to Brands Hatch

Arrived from Heathrow to fresh snow on the ground and icy temperatures. Good food in the very cool racing themed bar and a comfortable room. Would have preferred one queen to two twins but slept well. Breakfast was fairly expensive for the selection of a buffet but overall an excellent stay. Has a free gym which I would have used if I were not jet lagged. I paid about $100 for my room. I suspect on a race weekend the price quadruples at which point you are paying for location.

Just okay

Thistle is rated as a 4 star - I would rate it as a 3 star more like a Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast price outrageous: GBP16 per person - free at HIexpress and better quality. We had room service - okay - meal in restaurant - waited 1 hour for our meal - the answer was: kitchen is busy! Room was okay - beds very hard.

a little apprehensive

I was a little apprehensive as I booked for a party of four friends. The feedback I had read was VERY mixed. We went to see the British Super Bikes and it was perfect accommodation for us, Clean, comfortable, ideally located. Very glad not to have been influenced by the negative reviews I read before booking. Didn't eat there or have time for the leisure centre so can't comment on these aspects.
