Good hotel, Lovely room, Not the biggest we've had but perfectly adequate. Great place. Just by Tram stop. On the end of the promenade. Breakfast great. Help Yourself buffet with a wide variety. Staff there were great both at front desk and in Breakfast room.

On our way back to the UK we booked this hotel as a last minute choice in the morning of the day we were due to travel. As such we had a very good deal on the price. This seaside town was chosen as an alternative to staying in Dunkirk for the ferry crossing back to the UK. It was... More

Good value budget hotel, with clean, modern & tidy rooms. Buffet breakfast provides all you need in plentiful amounts!! Loads of good restaurants nearby, either on the prom or in the town, ranging from cheap & cheerful to top of the range. None, however, were able to provide a menu in English!

We had two rooms in this hotel, both very similar, but not exactly the same. There's free wi-fi in the bedrooms. The rooms are not exciting, but the bathrooms are very nice! Good white towels, not much water pressure for morning showers though (but we were told there was an outside 'problem' with water supply). If you have a 'courtyard'... More

Stayed one night to break the journey back to UK. This hotel offers exceptionally good value. My room would have benefitted from some redecoration, but it was clean, quiet & comfortable. The breakfast room seems to have been refurbished recently, and provided an excellent breakfast. The hotel is a few metres from the beach, and a short walk from the... More

Located just metres from the beach, with fine views over the sea. Hotel and rooms a little tired, but spotlessly clean, with very comfortable beds. Nice buffet breakfast, with plenty of choice. Friendly attentive staff. Would not hesitate to stay again.

We were two couples who booked two doubles, but what we got was single beds pushed together,in very small rooms, hence only 4 star.
