Reviewed 31 December 2016

We stayed here overnight before catching the DFDS ferry to Dover the following morning. We had driven from Eastern Czech republic so were quite worn out. Unfortunately on arrival we found the hotel had no hot water due to a fault. However the receptionist offered to find us alternate accommodation or get a 20% discount. We stayed in a comfortable...

Perfect for business. Simple rooms. Clean and friendly staff that all speak very good English. They are extremely helpful. Rooms are cosy, comfortable beds and simple shower room. Tv is very small and only local channels. Happy with my stay. Would recommend to other business travellers.

Pros: Good location (but there are plenty other hotels close by). Cons: Very small rooms, No tea or coffee in rooms. Dirty, smelly hotel. The staff is absolutely terrible (with the exception of Crystal & Benoit - they were the only two staff that made me feel welcome and not a burden). Two of the women at the front desk...

Stayed here for three nights whilst on a business trip. My room was clean, and cleaned every day. Bed was fine, view over marina was nice, shower decent. Breakfast ok, quite limited, never tried restaurant for evening meal. It is a 2 star hotel, don't let that put you off. Hotel staff could converse adequately in English, I had no...

Most of the staff has poor English skills. So messages about general information will only be written in French. Hotel is clean, but quite worn down. So rating is 2.5 stars, I'm nice Carpets floor, so maybe not the best place for people with allergy. Doors are a bit lose so the towel to keep them shut is smart to...

Rooms in the hotel are clean. Equipment is not always working well. Taking a shower required some patience as switching over from bath to shower head was difficult. Apparently check by technical staff of hotel lacking at times. Restaurant not used but mainly good based on comments others. Price of hotel is reasonable and good beds and rooms were quiet...

We stayed for 1 night before getting the ferry back to the UK the next morning. Hotel is very much outdated, but it was perfectly clean. Not having AC on a hot day/night was very tiring. Receptionist was very friendly, however I did not like the fact we were given wrong keys after coming back from a walk. We basically...

This was the last hotel after a long trip from the south west of France over a three day period. I wasn't sure of the area at first but after a quick walk we changed our minds. There are restaurants, cafes and pubs all around as well as the Maritime museum and a three master ship, university buildings and the...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel this weekend. We paid the fully inclusive price, in advance, using Expedia. Shortly after arrival, we were asked by the Receptionist how much we had paid Expedia. Although surprised by the question, we told her, and we confirmed that this price included breakfast. On leaving the hotel, we dropped the key off...
