“Good overnight stopover”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

Location, just off the A26 about 45 minutes from Calais depending on how fast you drive. Much of the A26 is "Peage" so there is a toll booth on the exit. The hotel itself is tucked down a side road, look for the large blue Decathlon sports store and head for it. There is also a Premiere Classe hotel at the same place that is owned by the same company that owns the Campanile. So you have a choice, the low cost Premier Classe or pay a more at the Campanile.

Although this hotel is on the edge of a retail park, it has an almost "country" feel to it due to the trees and the general layout. Everything is typical Campanile style with a reception and restaurant building and then rooms in a separate two level building.

Rooms themselves are not "DeLuxe" but certainly adequate, with kettle, tea, coffee, flat screen TV, and very basic toiletries. There is free WiFi, make sure you get your login details when you check in. Although rooms have good solid walls so no noise from next door, there was quite a bit of noise from people talking outside on the balcony, no fault of the hotel just inconsiderate other guests.

The restaurants of many Campanile Hotels have recently been refurbished, so they now have a more modern, crisp, feel to them. For me a favourite aspect of staying and eating at a Campanile is the Hors d'oeuvre buffet, always good, and my swordfish steak main course was great.

Conclusion, a reasonable value stop off point to or from Eastern and Southern France, extremely close to the A26. If you are on a tight budget there is also the Premier Classe next door and you can still use the Campanile restaurant.

Room Tip: Other side to car park is quieter.

Comfortable, clean, friendly staff. Didn't eat here as arrived late.
Reserved a ground floor room because of mobility issues, they had put us upstairs (no Lift).
Was able to change to ground floor as there was availability, would have been a problem if there hadn't have been.
Tea and coffee making facilities and French channels on flat screen t.v.
Nice and easy access straight from outside, but had a small inner lobby to help prevent draughts. Had aircon and heating but didn't need either, visited end of march.
Very quiet, no noise.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights, my wife & I and my mother-in-law who has some mobililty issues. We had asked for a room for her on the ground floor and this had been arranged by the hotel so this didn't need to be discussed when we arrived.

We were welcomed to the hotel by Daisy who was lovely and most efficient and we saw her a few times during our stay, each time she was very helpful. We were also had dealings with a young man called Patrick who again was most proficient - they are both a credit to the hotel, and all other members of staff we met had a smile on their face!

The bedrooms themeselves were fairly basic, looking a little tired but were spotlessly clean. As previous reviewers have said the walls are quite thin so you can be troubled with noise from neighbours, as my mother-in-law was last night with youngsters in the adjoining room.

We had breakfast on both days and whilst on the first morning the choice was quite limited, this second morning it was a much better selection and the staff were constantly refreshing the dishes. We had dinner on the second night and were very impressed with the starter and desert buffets. My mother-in-law, who has a fairly small appetite found that this was quite sufficient but my wife and I had main courses from the menu and whilst my wife was happy with her dish my steak was a little disapointing being a fairly small portion which was quite tough to eat.

All in all the Hotel Campanile Bethune is ideal for the one or two night stopover, take advantage of the breakfast and the dinner (avoid the thick rump steak if you like a large portion) & enjoy the excellent customer service. Don't expect a five star hotel and you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Floors away from the stairs are probably the quietest.

close to the motorway, but far enough from any traffic noise. Good for an overnight stop, the Premiere Classe shares the same car park and is cheaper if you want to go that way.

The New Look Campanile (stone grey and red plastic) is not to everyones tatse, but i consider it value for money and does for us what it needs too.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights at the start of September so as to visit the Braderie in nearby Lille. Unfortunately so did most of the French police force! We were practically the only guests not in uniform. They were so noisy that myself, my husband and my parents who were in a neighbouring room, got absolutely no sleep. We were surrounded by policemen who seemed intent on moving furniture all night and stomping round in hobnail boots. They changed shifts at around 4am and for an hour before that made a racket while getting ready, then from 4am to around 6am stood around in the car park, talking at full volume. Add to this the fact that the traffic on the road outside the hotel was incredibly noisy with lorries hurtling past all night. We literally had no sleep for the whole two nights, despite complaining to hotel management who were very unhelpful simply saying we couldn't move rooms because the rest of the hotel was fully booked - by the police force! They didn't even put us in a far corner of the hotel away from the police, but instead put policemen in between us and all around. There were around eight van loads and two lorry loads of them. We were furious not to get any help from hotel management and they wouldn't give us our money back on the second day so we were forced to endure another sleepless night.
Also when we went to the bar for a drink we sat there for almost an hour without being served and eventually had to go and track down the waitress in the kitchen. Appalling service by staff and management.
DON'T STAY HERE if you want to get any sleep!

All good, as you'd expect. The restaurant has been modernised and dinner and service were fantastic. Rooms are nice, and clean, but could do with a lick of paint.
Breakfast was disappointing, not a huge selection, and cheese and ham sweaty. Pain au chocolate greasy... But bread was wonderful.
Recommend overall!
