When travelling by car from France to UK we wanted to stay one night in Calais and took a ferry to Dover early in the next morning. We were 3 adults, family members though, and wanted to get a large room with 3 beds instead of two rooms. Situated at a large park on a peaceful street this nice family driven guest house is quite near to the harbor of Calais, only 15 minutes by car. For evenings there are some restaurants at walking distance.
Our loft suite consisted of a living room with TV and comfortable leather sofa, and one bedroom with a good double bed and two quite simple single beds. This flat was on the top of the house, 3rd or 4th floor, and there were no lift . It was not a problem for us because we could leave our luggage in the car and were able to step up lots of stairs. There are some nice room which are not so high up. Parking area was just outside this guest house on the park side and it was free of charge.
Our "suite" included a large modern shower cabin, and there was a beautiful view over the roofs from our living room.The interior was decorated in "shabby chic" style and with handmade textiles, very home-like. We forgot to ask them to put on wifi, and it was not working automatically in the night, at least we could not use it. We also forgot to ask for teacups, and could not use the available water cooker and teabags during the evening.
The breakfast was included to the room price and served in a beautiful dinging room downstairs. We liked healthy newly baked breads, good cheeses and ham and lovely yogurt., juice and coffee/tea.
When leaving the house I saw a beautiful large room on the second floor, and attach a photo of it here. I suppose it was a family room, too, for more than 2 persons.
The best of all the visit was The Madame herself, very friendly and helpful and spoke good English.
If you are looking for a clean and nice budget accommodation with good breakfast , this could be one choice. Be prepared to pay cash, because they don't take credit cards.
If you are allergic, there was both a dog and a cat, which belonged to the guest house.
