We stayed here overnight en route driving to the south of France. We chose it as a cheap option for a family room, breakfast is included and it is easy to find from the ferry. It was all of these things, but also surprisingly quite stylish and friendly. I loved the lobby/bar area where you can help yourself to free coffee & croissants day or night and read the paper, or drink a refreshing beer whilst watching the kids play in the kids technology corner.
The staff were lovely when we arrived and happily spoke back to us in French because we were making an effort. They also helped us out arranging a cot at the last minute, which had been lost from the original online booking.
The only downside of this hotel was that our room had a very high sky light. With it being June, and light until nearly 10pm, the kids didn't get to sleep until late! This may not be true of other rooms in the hotel but seemed an oversight in a family room.... It could do with a blind or shutter or something!
Overall it is a budget hotel and is never going to be luxurious, but it was the best place of its sort we have stayed in. I would definitely recommend it for a stopover.
