“Excellent as always”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions and have always found it to be a very convenient place to and from the ferry. As the vast majority of customers stay for one night night only one should not expect 'personal touches'. The staff have always been very helpful and friendly and the rooms spotlessly clean with good bed linen and comfortable beds. Over the years that we have been visiting, new rooms have been added and the older ones upgraded. The breakfast is better than many in France and one can even boil one's own eggs! We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. The restaurant across the road is convenient and serves reasonable food at reasonable prices.

A convenient place to stay for the Eurotunnel crossing. Clean and comfortable room although rather small in comparison to other hotels we stayed at for the price.A nice welcome and staff were very friendly. We had evening dinner in the restaurant attached to the hotel. A reasonable choice of menus and our meals were tasty but something was missing to give it a top rating.The surroundings were a bit basic. A very good breakfast was on offer.Will definitely return for another visit.

Like many others we stayed for one night on our way home, but sorry this just didn't work for us. The exterior of the hotel is pretty but the outside seated space overlooks nothing but the car park. The bedroom was comfortable enough but there were no personal or individual touches. The dinner in the restaurant was very poor. The food tasted institutionalised, boil in the bag kind of food, not fresh, certainly unimaginative. I felt that I was in an efficient machine all set up to deliver me back to the UK with the minimum of fuss and a complete lack of interest. An efficient operation and very convenient for the trip home, but if you want to enjoy France on your last night night in France, this is not the place to stay.

This is a great place to stay just a few miles from Calais. Comfortable rooms and a good breakfast. The hotel restaurant, just across the road, served great food too. Apart from the hotel and two other restaurants, there is nothing else in the village, so it is very quiet.

This hotel ticks all the boxes. Classed as a two star but offers so much more.
Like a lot of others have stayed here on numerous occasions and always enjoy.
The area is wonderful, never changes just like Hotel L'Escale where the standards are maintained at a high level.
Perfect for a short break or at the end or beginning of a longer trip to France.

We have stayed here many times and always enjoy the experience. This time we went with two friends who had stayed with us once before just for one night but really enjoyed the food, both at breakfast and at the restaurant across the road.the seafood was excellent. This time we enjoyed to meals in the restaurant and they did not disappoint only that they had run out of the Cotes de Rhone we enjoyed on the first night!! However the alternative was excellent. All the staff are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The garden is very pleasant and it was lovely to relax on the sun beds after a busy day buying wine! We will be back.

Room Tip: We had room 45 on both our recent visits and it was very nice on the first floor with a bath and a...
