Resting easy

Shoppers and visitors to and from the continent can now extend their trips, following the opening of a 104-room hotel in Ebbsfleet.

Marston's Inns' Spring River hotel opened in the Springhead area on 8 January, four months after a pub and carvery launched next door.

Located close to Ebbsfleet International, travellers benefit from fast transport links into central London, and a direct route to continental Europe.
