Beautiful foyer, bar & breakfast room. Very helpful English speaking staff. We stayed in a suite which was a very big room with 2 king size beds, a sofa, chairs & a table. All with En suite bathroom. Plenty of parking outside. Expensive breakfast at €12.50 but free to under 10s. Bacon & eggs on asking & plenty of buffet continental choice. Dozens of restaurants 5-10mins walk away. I'd personally recommend Au Bureau.

Stayed: April 2014

Staff and owner extremely helpful and friendly. Room and bathroom were very small but clean and tidy, we had a good nights sleep with no disturbances. Breakfast was fine with a good selection. We parked our car outside the hotel and did not have any problems. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance to the hotel. It takes about five minutes to get to the Eurotunnel and we found the location convenient.

Just come back from spending 3 nights at this hotel. Room comfortable and clean with linen changed daily. Staff friendly and helpful even apologising for a bit of refurbishment. Despite previous reviews we were not disturbed by any noise at all.
Was able to park outside the hotel so didn't need to use paid parking but useful after a day of shopping for return. Thoroughly recommend

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor but unable to comment on anywhere else within hotel as only stayed a n...

A cheap stop-over but the rooms are not very big and are a bit tired. The bar area was nice and the owner very helpful. The curtains didn't fit over the windows properly and we were woken early by the tannoy announcements from the very nearby railway station. It's ok for one night before an early ferry but I woud not stay again.

I had a chance to sleep in this hotel twice. To be honest I was expecting more for over 100E. Garage should be in price. Rooms are very small. Even Superior room small as well.. If you compare 3stars hotel in France and in Germany there is huge difference.

Room Tip: There's not big difference between superior and normal room. Better to choose standard one.

We stayed here for one night as Calais train station was closed and we couldn't continue our journey till the following morning.

The good points first;
1. Friendly staff (both receptionist and barman with great sense of humour)
2. Suprisingly, our room was very clean
3. Adjacent to the train station

Now the bad;
1. Surrounding area is a bit desolate, and no amenities nearby
2. The whole establishment is in urgent need of modernisation (see photos)
3. Prices at the bar are very high

Room Tip: Avoid room with TV in the ceiling!

What a luck to find 24hr before going a room accepting 2 adults and 2 kids and a room with space not a room with extra bed.
We got the suite Opale for £153 on a Saturday evening.
Staff friendly, breakfast with some choice, very happy overall
