The Channel Tunnel, plus Dover & Folkestone (often spelt wrongly as Folkstone) Truck Stop Transport Cafe & Lorry Park & Coaches) is easily found by following the A2070 or signs showing the outline of a Lorry, the words do not ALWAYS indicate that a full blown comprehensive facility can be found there, but it definitely can. Any sign showing the outline of a lorry (Truck) can be followed at junction 10 and it will take you there.
This a high security facility, with CCTV high resolution coverage with night light vision, covering the Lorry Park and all buildings, external and internal public areas. The Lorry Park has a high capacity with excellent herringbone engineering brick surface covering some acres of ground, one of the best (I think it is the best) in the UK.

Some extra easy location instructions as follows:
From junction 10 of the M20 Motorway turn towards Ashford on the A2070, which is a left turn if you are going north and a right turn if you are going south, it’s about a 3 minute trip, and really couldn’t be easier. Lorry Park symbol signs guide you in but after the turn off the motorway take the left turn at the first roundabout which is after going over a bridge crossing a railway line. It’s seconds down the road. Security on the gate will look after you from there on, and the food is really good so enjoy a good meal.

The whole establishment is spotlessly clean and very very relaxing; the menus are extensive with ample food on the plate. Healthy menus are also available and far far better than normal motorway service stations, plus excellent quality, and good quantity again, coupled with a low price. The presentation of the healthy foods I could see were at a standard suitable for many good hotels and a credit to the staff, especially the cooks and chefs who prepare the meals on this 24/7 basis, not an easy task. It really gets top marks for shining floors to everything else.
The Channel Tunnel is far far better than any Motorway Services in the UK in my opinion, and it’s capacity is in the very good hotel league.
The food has a plate with TWICE as much on it for, and presentation whilst good for both, is better at the Channel Tunnel Lorry Park, or you can call it a Truck Stop plus 5 STAR Transport Café.
You can see from the photographs that the whole place is shining; the food preparation areas are 100% clean and a credit to the whole staff and management. The kitchen staffs were good spirited and cheerful, very important, and two chefs, one French and one Italian. I am quite sure they could present a dish that would in keeping with the Dorchester or any other good City Hotel, but more than a speck on the plate for our HGV, Coach, and White Van Man Drivers, also those many teams of workers/technicians who travel over the UK on contracts. Don’t miss the Ashford International Truck Stop Transport Cafe 21st Century style.
Entertainment is available most weeks. All enquiries please phone the hotline 01233 502 919
