I'm a big fan of Campaniles for overnight stops because I find they tick all the right boxes - good food, comfortable beds and strong showers. Campanile Loon Plage didn't disappoint. We had driven up from the south of france that day so all we wanted was to arrive, eat and flop into bed - for which campaniles are perfect. I confess that nine times out of ten i stay in campaniles for the fact I know the buffets are always excellent - and you know it will be clean, good value and functional rooms. Also - free wifi is a must for me in hotels - which they always provide.
It's a modern hotel - very well appointed for both the Dunkerque and Calais ferry ports. We stayed there overnight to catch the early morning ferry from Calais and it was only 25 mins drive to the port - and a much nicer and better value than most of the offerings in the town of Calais itself at the time of booking.
The room was awesome - we booked a room with two singles and double, and what we got was a suite! There was a large living space, two single beds at one end and a sofa and tv at the other - then a separate room with a double bed in it. The bathroom had a bath and large separate walk in shower. The toilet was in a separate room too. Looking at the fire escape plan we had the biggest room in the hotel by far - I think there is only one - so if you're after the big room then book it early!!
It was very quiet when we were there - having read other peoples reviews before booking I could see the car-park getting quite crowded on busy nights - especially as it is shared with the next-door premiere classe hotel. Interestingly - there is a premiere classe, Kyriad and Campanile all within 100 metres of each other (all in the same hotel group) so you could stay in one and dine in the other if you wanted to. There is also a Poivre Rouge diner just across the road so there is lots of eating options.
The staff were friendly and polite, the menu was fine - all in a good stop - the only thing I would point out is that it's not in the actual town of Dunkirque but outside it on one of the industrial estates. You need a car to get there - don't think it's a public transport job!
