“Peking in Calais, I thought it was in China!”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Calais is where most Brits set foot in France or return home after their Euro tours and to be honest Calais in not the most salubrious of places, well nor is Dover when you think of it, both are simply dwarfed by the ferry terminals.

So who would believe it that there is a mini Peking in Calais and a mini Morocco plus a mini Bombay and Puket as well! Well you wouldn't would you - but their is and it's in the form of a themed hotel created by it's amazing designer owner.

My wife and I stayed in Peking, it was amazing we sooo loved it, every detail would have you in China even the music. Plus you even have your own breakfast table with Chinese plates, cups and cutlery, its fun and funky... We had breakfast with a couple who sat at the Morocco table it was really fun and they loved their room too...

So next time you set foot in France via Calais and you have a night or two to spare, check out this fun little B & B, its a great experience and all at a bargain price...

Next time I think we''l go to Bombay....

This was a real change from the usual standard hotel. The lady who greeted us was friendly and helpful and there was a wonderful spice/citrus aroma in the hallway. There are 4 suites, all with an Eastern theme. We stayed in the Agadir suite which was decorated in a Moroccan style. The room was very spacious with a large seating area and a king size bed. The bathroom was entered through an arch with saloon type doors., which some may not like as there is limited privacy. However, we thought it was adequate and it was part of the theme. There were numerous candles around the suite, including the bathroom, plus a joss stick. We enjoyed sitting in the relaxed atmospher followed by a good night's sleep.
Breakfast is continental but fresh and more than adequate. The 4 rooms each have an allocated table set in the theme of the room.
The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from numerous bars and restaurants. The hotel does not have dining facilities but apparently has arangements to have food delivered if required.
We would stay again and would recommend the hotel for anyone who wants a change from the usual formula available at most hotels.

Room Tip: The Agadir suite was great but I would try another next time just for the experience. Just pick one...

This was a quirky, atmospheric b & b with a touch of humour. We stayed in the Phuket room and enjoyed a different experiene. Candles, joss sticks, tea and a futon all helped make this a stay with a difference. I would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Its up to you.

Me and my partner stayed here during the week for a quick break away, and all i can say is it was absolutely fantastic! the lady was very welcoming and pleasant.. although she couldnt speak much english she made up with her charm and welcoming nature, the scent of the place was beautiful with oils burning and automatically made you feel like you was in paradise not in calais!! we stayed in the agadir suite and the decor was brilliant, with plenty of space and room to definately relax! the room was lovely and clean and again had a lovely smell of morocco with a sound of the moroccan atmosphere with the music on the cd playing. one of our favourite parts was trying on the authentic gown in the warddrobes having a bit of young fun!!breakfast was traditionally french with croissants and bread with jams and yogurts with lovely fresh coffee and juice. we will definately be returning to try another room!!!

Well done nuit d'ailleurs!!

We stayed here at the end of June for a shopping/eating/drinking 2 night break, we stayed in the Bombay room.

Well what can I stay, the room was beautiful. It had a soft bed and en-suite WC. It also had a sitting room with a TV (proper french freeview TV, no English channels, though it had a in-built DVD player). The bathroom is adjacent to the sitting room and had a huge bath and sink.

The place is so quiet and relaxing. Sandrine the owner is always smiling and helpful.

Breakfast was croissants, fresh bread, jams, nutella, kiwi fruit, yogurts, tea/coffee and orange juice, just enough to set you up for the day, all served by the lovely host. You can park right outside on a quiet residential road (if you go outside at night you are right underneath the lighthouse!)

The B&B is 2 mins walk to the centre of calais, the square has many places to eat and drink.Try out the bar (tabac) at the end of the road for pre-dinner drinks, proper french. Also great coffee.

I can't say enough nice things about the place. Sandrine has a great place here and I won't stay anywhere else when in calais.

Happy to take questions via the messaging system if anyone has questions!

Room Tip: Pick the Bombay/Agadir/Pekin if you like to soak in the bath.Phuket has a large shower.

This bed and breakfast (Chambres d'hote) has just 4 rooms, each with its own theme. Indian, Chinese, Thai and Moroccan. We selected the Agadir suite. The room was large, and well set out, decorated with a Moroccan theme. Very calming with subtle music. The bed was very large and beautifully set out. Breakfast was continental , croissants, bread, jam, butter, fruit, yoghurt, tea or coffee.

The owner was lovely. She was very helpful and always had a smile on her face. Its so good to find a 'different' stop over compared to the normal anodyne hotel chains.

We will definitely be staying here again.
