We stayed here before a long drive to the south of France. Although, thanks to euro tunnel delays, we arrived after 830pm (last orders) they were kind enough to still provide us with a lovely dinner. Steak (very nice) for my husband and turkey for me. Service was very friendly. The room was fine, beds perfectly comfortable and a nice hot shower in the morning. We left very early so can't comment on breakfast. Also dog friendly. All in all, a good place to stop over so close to motorway but with the impression of being in the countryside, very reasonably priced and decent food.

This was an easy stopover just a few miles away from Calais and the Tunnel. Simple, clean rooms, good parking and quiet location. We were there in very low season - in the Summer it may be busier as it's next to a campsite. The food was fairly basic but not expensive. Just what was needed.

We stayed here for one evening on our way from Calais to Normandy as we wanted to visit the St Omer market next morning. Although there were only two of us, we stayed in a family room, which was very comfortable with a very modern shower room which was spotlessly clean. There was a modern in room TV which picked up BBC as well as the French channels. Service was polite and friendly. We didn't have an evening meal but took breakfast the next morning which was the normal bread / croissants / yogurt / juice / coffee that one would expect, and perfectly acceptable. All in all, we thought the hotel was excellent value and would certainly stay again.

We have stayed here many times over the years. It's a very clean and modern hotel that has been done up not too long ago. Ideal for families as it is placed opposite a small family run theme park. There are interconnecting rooms, good for families with small children. Excellent value for money. The food in the restaurant is not great but the current owners have not been there for long so perhaps this will improve. The owners speak very limited English but we managed to get by with basic French/English.

We stayed here as a overnight stay prior to catching the ferry back from France.

Don't be put off by its low star rating. This place ticks all the boxes for a standard B&B.

It has recently been refurbished so the rooms are very pleasant.

The rooms are very clean.

The staff are friendly, hardworking and friendly, especially when we tried experimenting with our pigeon French.

The food was really good. The menu is basic bistro type food but executed superbly.

When travelling from Calais towards Paris or further south, this hotel is an excellent stop, only ~5 min drive from the motorway but not too close to the motorway. Very friendly staff who work very hard to make this hotel a pleasant experience for their guests. Pretty standard but good quality food in the restaurant, comfy rooms. Suitable for all ages. In the summer a funfair park open next to the hotel which any young guests may well like. Excellent value for money.
