“Just about ok for a stopover”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for one night prior to catching the ferry from Calais. The hotel is 2 minutes from the motorway and easy to find. There is a retail park right next door with a supermarket and a couple of fast food outlets if you don't want to eat in the restaurant, though being able to eat in the hotel is great at the end of a long day. The rooms are like most Campaniles but this one is badly in need of a refurb. It was clean and comfortable but there was mould on the bathroom ceiling and above the curtains and the air con didn't work. The room was also very dark, even in broad daylight (but ours was at the back of the hotel - the rooms at the front would not have this problem.) All in all, fine for an overnight stop but you wouldn't want to linger.

An easy hour's journey down the motorway from Calais, we had printed off the map from the website and had no problems locating it, the signage was clear in daylight. The restuarant was o.k. for dinner, usual Campanile standard, as was the breakfast. In fact the only difference from any other Campanile was that we were on a second floor. This meant a slightly larger room, different from the standard Campanile "box". The downside was that never previously having been disturbed by our neighbours in any other Campanile room, we were very aware of the neighbours because of the thin walls here. Fortunately the businessman in the next room finished his last call home at 11 pm so we weren't disturbed after that! We will stay again, but ask not to be on the second floor.

We were a group of cyclists travelling to and from the The Somme and this was a very good inexpensive stop over. The rooms are basic but clean and the restaurant and staff are to be commended. They run very very lean on staff but we never found any problem with this. The bar is also reasonably priced and the food in the restaurant very good for dinner and breakfast. Its a good job it is because there was nothing else in easy walking distance. Our bikes were safe and locked in the boiler house.Road hotels can lack character but here at the Campanile the staff gave it a very friendly feel.

Room Tip: Pick one at the back which has a lawn and are quieter

Wow, this Campanile came at the end of a monster drive up from the South of France full of traffic jams and delays. We arrived tired, exhausted and just in time to squeeze some dinner in before service finished at 21:45. The staff were welcoming and accommodating, happy to speak English to assist our frazzled French.

The food was tasty, not 5* but filling, warm and much appreciated after a long day behind the wheel. The bathroom was small but the shower provided a quick refresh before collapsing into the bed which was comfortable and huge. The hotel was quiet and we had no problem sleeping well all night.

Comments about better signage are spot on, we found it easily but only because of an accidental wrong turn on our way into Bethune. This Campanile was in a superb spot for us, cheaper as it was further from the Calais Shuttle Terminal but still close enough to put us in the terminal within 50 minutes of checking out. It's also worth a quick trip into town to collect diesel, avoiding the inflationary prices of the Autoroutes and Calais vicinity.

Room Tip: Rooms 21 to 52 face the rear of the hotel which, whilst further to walk, benefit from not facing the...

Stayed here for one night on our way back to the UK from Spain. I did not have great expectations of the place, and indeed they were met! Firstly the place looks a bit run down like it's due a re-furb soon, with the paint in our room peeling ETC. Can live with that though. What was not so good was that the Air Con was FEEBLE and did not cool the room at all. Also our toilet whilst functional was I'm afraid not the cleanest we have seen. We ate at the place and again our expectations were not high, but in an effort to get a decent meal I went for the top priced set menu at I seem to remember 23E. I ordered a steak which was very tough and only just edible. Not the best Campanile we have stayed at. ( We have stayed at quite a number over the years) On the plus side all the staff seemed friendly and helpful enough. If it was us again in the area we would stay at the "Premier Hotel" type place that is just next door and is 20E a night cheaper.

My brother and I spent four nights here in mid-June 2013, as we visited the nearby site of the Battle of Loos, tracing where our grandfather fought in 1915, and then various other First World War cemeteries and battlefields heading up towards Ypres, 30 miles north.

The Campanile was well-placed for this (it did take us a while to find it, even though we had been warned that it was well-hidden). It was very much what we expected from a Campanile - we shared a twin room, and the bathroom was clean, and unlike the Campanile at Peronne, where we stayed last year (visiting the Somme battlefields), there were hooks for dressing-gowns on the bathroom wall, and the bath shower-attachment worked properly. The hotel is motel-style, with every room's front door opening to an outside walkway. The rooms have thick walls , and we didn't hear the people in the neighbouring rooms.

Once you discover the little pedestrian cut-through beyond the McDonalds and alongside a car showroom, the walk into central Bethune (a pleasant town) is only 20 minutes, and there are plenty of excellent cafes and bars around the central square, and the locals are very friendly, although slightly surprised that tourists should be visiting Bethune!

The staff at the Campanile were delightful and efficient, happy to speak in English when our French ran out, and the four breakfasts and two evening meals that we ate there were excellent. If you are visiting the Loos battlefield, or just passing through this bit of France, then this motel-style hotel is absolutely fine.

Room Tip: Don't expect too much - this is a good no-nonsense place to stay when passing through or touring...

A modern hotel conveniently situated just off Junction 6 of the A6 Motorway. The insignificant looking access road is just at the entrance to a large retail park (first right after the roundabout) and could do with better and more prominent signs. Rooms are basic but comfortable and very clean. A tea/coffee tray is provided (with top-ups available on request) and there is good free Wi-Fi.

In the restaurant there is a choice of menus, but the stars are the buffets for starters and sweets. These were ample, imaginative, and frequently topped up by a chef to ensure they were kept fresh. The cheese course was also good, and the main course was OK but not special. The buffet breakfast was pretty standard but fine - cereals, breads, ham, cheese and jam. Staff were friendly but in the evening seemed a bit pushed.

Would certainly use it again as a stop-off between Calais and destinations further south.
