The majority of guests are travelling on ferries or eurotunnel. The customs staff were staying in this hotel too so it must be one of the better ones in Calais. When I drove up to it I was a bit apprehensive about the area that it is in as it looks a bit run down. There was lots of males walking about and initially felt uncomfortable parking my car.
Front reception advised that I could use their car park at 12 euros per day. My advice dont bother just park across the road there are plenty of spaces and we could see our car from the room window.
The ferry terminal is virtually opposite so you can see the lorries loading on the ferries. The rooms are a bit dated. THey did have very comfy beds though with mattress toppers and comfy pillows. I would say this hotel was built maybe 30 years ago and has only had decorative touches since. If you walk out the hotel and take the first left there are plenty of bars and restaurants. We ate in the sixties diner and I would recommend as a must !
We booked a rate including breakfast. The breakfast was the worst I have ever ever tasted in a hotel. The croissants were burnt, the bread looked cheap, the fruit canned and tea and coffee the cheapest they could find. REally Holiday inn it was substandard. If I had paid for it at 15 euros I would have asked for refund.
