i was unfortunate to be booked in here for 2 weeks by my company . Firstly the hotel is not near any restaurants ,bars ,shops or anything for miles. The menu for dinner is very limited , the first night i thought i would try the steak, Very tough and gristley ,only 1 word to describe this steak is Mistake. After a week i thought it might have been a 1 off so i tried again it was just the same,and on my last night i thought i would give it one more go ,but worse than ever ,I tried both ends and a piece from the middle to no avail , left it in disgust.The bar shuts at 9.30 pm even on saturday , would not go back !
I have been staying at this hotel for many years, first with my late wife then my family and last week a 92 year old neighbour. It was great to see the same staff including Eric And Erica who made us welcome. The rooms are very clean and very comfortable beds with good bed linen. Plenty of hot water. The food suited us very well, good cold buffet of starters, changing main course and desert buffet. I have limited mobility and could get in my car at home , use the Tunnel and arrive at hotel without getting out. Rooms 1 to 10 are on ground floor with parking outside the door and about 50 metres from restaurant. Staff helpful and friendly, my friend said the house red wine was excellent. We had a really great break and strongly suggest this hotel for people with limited mobility but mention when booking
Obnoxious rude and unhelpful lady on reception. Old and frail people with walking sticks forced to walk up stairs to top landing even after complaining. €6.50 for a beer which the glass is not even full, is insulting. Food is mediocre. Bad attitude from female staff.
We stayed for 1 night en route for the ferry. The room was very clean. Beds comfortable. Bathroom clean and in good order. Restaurant was good. Staff were very helpful and nice. Remember to ask for a double bed if you want one as twins are often given if not specified. Earplugs recommended and indeed are thoughtfully sold in the reception area. Overall very good value and so clean. Nice little garden aswell. Merci a tous. Tres tres propre. Restaurant super. Salle de bains tous propre et marche parfait. Jolie jardin. Lits sont vraiment comfortable.
We booked this hotel the week before and during the act of on line booking the price went from €69 to €89. The cheap rate disappeared , but after booking adverts kept popping up offering the €69 rate. There were five rooms doubles and five singles bedded rooms available at the time. We were given room 37, and on opening the door the temperature inside was 29 to 30 deg (according to the thermostat switch). Outside was 34. We complained and were offered our money back, but having toured the town and found everything booked up (as I'm sure the manageress already knew), we had no choice. The dinner was 'average'. By 22.00 the room temperature was still 25deg with the door and window open, so my wife decided she had to sleep on the outside landing, and other guests stepped round her on the way to their room. Despite having driven from Brive and the prospect of the leg to Yorkshire the following day, I stayed up until midnight. However I couldn't sleep with the door and window open because I was worried about security. At 02.00 I persuaded my wife to come inside - down to 23deg. We gave up trying to sleep and got up at 05.30, too the dog for a walk around the nearby lake - didn't bother with breakfast and left around 08.15. I spent some time making videos on the swollen door being shut (which probably woke the folks next door at 02.00.) - The black mould in both bathroom and room, which suggested that the air con may not have worked for some time, and of course the air con, which by 05.30 demonstrated that the room was down to 20 to 21 deg. A stark contrast to the night's stay at the Campanile in Brive, where although it was an old building, everything worked (outside temp 39.5, inside 18 !), it was clean, and the food - although the usual Campanile formula, was absolutely great. We have a home in Andorra and use Campanile hotels - and similar,- regularly on the way up and down France. We previously stayed at this one during the month of April, when the air con wouldn't have been such an issue. Don't stay in the port where they could get away with selling you a tent . At least the tent would have eliminated the midge bites or the side order of the Black Mould, depending whether you slept outside or inside !
We went early evening , clearly empty other than couple , said the place was fully booked , I understand English families may not be welcome, we speak reasonable French and have children who behave , this is a transit hotel and should accommodate transit travellers, it's our 50plus journey across Europe and first time we have experienced this but the reason for the review , Note we were advised by them to use the place opposite which we already been advised as closed , We checked throughout the evening after finding alternative food - empty
Arrived to friendly welcome but apart from the food that's where the good things ended. The room was not homely at all the shower and bathroom had mould the walls had holes the mirror was worn out the floor dirty and the heater was off the wall balanced on the floor with burn marks above it. However the other peopl I stayed with said there rooms were ok so I guess avoid room 022
Stayed here for one night. Had the dog with us and we could take him too. Had its onsite restaurant that was good enough for dinner and breakfast. Free wifi was a bit iffy. All in all decently priced and comfortable enough. It is a little noisy as it is very close to the A25 autoroute.
The Hotel fulfilled our requirements as an over night stop and a little more. The room was better than I have experienced with this group previously and had all the expected facilities. The TV however only was tuned to French programs. The morning breakfast buffet was excellent, with fresh fruits, breads and more than adequate support foods, a real surprise. We arrived early evening after al long drive and was surprised how close Belgium towns were so took an evening drive on only 1 hour which was really enjoyable.
A friend and I were looking for a simple, cheap, clean place to sleep after a late ferry into Dunkirk. The hotel staff were friendly, parking easy, hotel clean, room recently renovated, bathroom clean. The sound insulation was poor to the hallway, easy to hear people, but for a simple sleep it was fine. We would use it again.
