Excellent breakfast, attentive staff, warm comfortable bedrooms, the best bed I have slept in in France ! Showers that work Loved the character of the place
We had a larger room this time and it was very comfortable andwell appointed. N/A
The stay was v. brief but I particularly liked the rather old fashioned style of the hotel (although facilities were completely modern)
Absolutely fabulous. From the minute we entered the hotel, we were made to feel extremely welcome by each and every member of staff that we came across. Would not hesitate whatsoever to stay again and to recommend to everyone I know looking to stay in Calais. The only problem was the lukewarm temperature in the room. Having said that, I telephoned Reception to ask if I could in any way turn the heating up. A member of staff came to try and bought with her a portable heater which did the trick.
The location of the hotel and the parking facilities in front
Friendly staff, fantastic buffet breakfast, clean room. Restaurant next door pricey but quality menu.
A very special place. Old fashioned shabby chic with egyptian cotton bedsheets to die for. Near to good restaurants and the beach but you can also walk down to the shopping area quite easily. A lovely spacious room with a sitting area and flat screen TV with BBC channels if thats what you want. There was nothing we didn't like. Resident dog 'Zeus' is a charmer. We were able to drink late in the cosy bar.
The room was large and comfortable and being at the back it was quiet Would stay again but not have food at hotel. Had dinner the first evening but thought the food below expectations and price high. Breakfast was only average but again expensive
Beautiful room, furniture and excellent bedding Room was cold
Room was very comfortable. The welcome and staff were first class. The buffet breakfast was rather expensive although the breakfast room looked very inviting.
Good location for the tunnel
Good location nice facilities We were on 2 days half board and the set menu was the same on both evenings we had to upgrade on the second evening as my husband is allergic to cheese and there was only one choice of starter without.Also we found the service slow for those on set menu when we upgraded it was much quicker.The restaurant was not busy on either night so this was not the reason.
The room was clean and felt airy, being a tall person it was a pleasure to have a large bath.
The surroundings were very relaxing. two minutes from town but backing onto fields We found the swimming arrangements very formal and strict. not very relaxing
Close to cap blanc nez and gris nez.
Hotel comfortable and warm,food good especially evening meal.Hotel is very convenient to The Tunnel and Cite Europe but is in peaceful location.I Enjoyed the swimming. The pool was very clean and warm and staff were excellent. As we are of a certain age(69 and 70) we found the seating in our room was uncomfortable it would be nice to have had a couple of easy chairs
Restaurant- staff not very good, dinner- good menu, high prices, but food was not very hot (we did not complain at the time)
Very friendly staff and good service. The swimming pool. The breakfast was not as good as expected
Bonus having a pool and proximity to eurotunnel, which was the reason we chose that hotel It was as expected for the price paid and enough for a 1 night stay. Changing room for the pool/gym was very small and lockers did not work and it seems that on a Fri evening many locals use the facilities
Comfortable and well equipped
Good location - convenient for ferries
The room stank of cigarette smoke, so much so that we had to have the window open all the time. Apart from that, comfortable and well placed for a stopover before the ferry home though.
The very friendly waiter in the restaurant Despite this beeing a non smoking hotel the room smelt of smoke.
hotel was clean,the staff were very friendly & helpful,hotel bar & restaurant was nice & overlooking the beach,prices very reasonable too only downside was we asked for more pillows but they never arrived
We stay at this hotel 3/4 times each year, including at the end of May a family celebration for 3 days with anything up to 14 of us staying at the hotel. We always find the staff very helpful and friendly, the rooms very clean, facilities in the rooms good and generally the hotel is excellent value for money and well above average for a 2 star hotel. Parking outside the room is a bonus. Proximity to the sea, local restaurants and cafes excellent Restaurant nice, good atmosphere especially for a group, meals adequate but dont expect cordon bleu. This time we had a dessert of crepes with sugar - arrived in less than a minute, luke warm, brown sugar, inedible but we were not charged for them. One other minor critiscism - guests leaving early always seem very noisy - sound insulation to the passage is not good
Friendly staff, good restaurant No wifi, hot water had to be run for 15 minutes before it became hot. Not very good for the environment. No hot/cold indicators on taps so did not know which way to turn them. Chipped and durty paintwork. Tiles in bathroom painted
excellent shower and good breakfasts
Location to the beach and acceptance of pets staying at the hotel who were very welcome. None
Convientent to find, location on beach and location for ferry. Staff very friendly, with excellent English Good resturant Room was small, but ok for 1 night
hotel was quite noisy.i.e other guest going to and from rooms.area looks run down.
The atmosphere in the Chateau There was no air conditioning in the room and the toilet in the bathroom had not been cleaned properly as it was soiled.
Restaurant very good Room smelt musty
It's setting and location. The poor quality of the expensive dinner and their inflexibility when I asked to cancel breakfast, which turned out to be poor for 20euros
Food was excellent
nice old building lots of character peaceful location rooms spacious and beds comfortable bathroom could do with an upgrade dinner expensive for disappointing food service was painfully slow.would still return for the experience of staying in such a beautiful old place
Convenient location relative to Calais but in more attractive ambience. Had stayed once before. They offered a special price Mersault wine to guests at Euro 17.50 and so when I ordered that in the Bar it was charged at Euro 61.00!! That was a shocker...
Ideal location for us breakfast a bit too basic
The building was beautiful Slow staff and very dated, tatty and cheaply furnished
great location, beautiful buildings and grounds Needed more lounge areas downstairs
the food unable to find a member of staff to get a drink after dinner
One assumes something about staff at cheap transit hotels, may be tired, a little matter of fact, not all that pleased to see you? and that's kind of OK because you're not paying much and so on. But the guy at the Ibis was really nice, pleasant and really seemed to actually give a monkeys. in all, great location, good price, very passable food (even at midnight) and yeah, really really good staff. Nothing, its actually pretty good.
Resteraunt closes at 21.00 hours and nothing available after that in terms of a bar or vending machine. So if you want to eat or have a drink in the hotel it id not possible after 21.00!!! Noit very French - the Ibis hotel close by has a bar open till very late and food available till round about 11.00 in the evening and with a similar room rate!
location and value food
Room was newly refurbished and clean. Room And ensuite small but OK for the price. Breakfast was normal help your self buffet with good choice but expensive. Good for a short stay but not for a holiday. Your website refers to the good restaurant but fails to mention that it is closed Sat & Sunday. For anyone arriving as we did this was a major dissapointment as it was difficult to find anywhere near to eat.
Clean, comfortable, warm,inexpensive Cramped, lack of evening meal
Cheap and convenient location The room was feeezing when we arrived - we could hardly get to sleep!
Clean, good customer service, very secure (4 meter fences around hotel and car park and code access) Room very small and claustraphobic, very unimaginatives old building (like a concrete cell)
Good location for Tunnel and ferries. The restaurant was not open when we arrived (20.00) but the reception told us of a restaurant nearby.
Clean, excellent late check in facilities, value for money, easy to find, excellent breakfast I had a little trouble with the website
Very helpful and freidnly staff, good cuisine Despite of it being freezing outside, the room was not heated when I checked in at 6.30pm. As there was only one small heater that worked (the one in the bathroom unfortunately did not), it took the whole night for the room to become warm and cosy.... Which obviously did not contribute to an enjoable stay- sorry
Quiet Restraunt not open even though it was listed as one of the facilities Reduction in facilities not really compensated for by lower price than others
Good ensuite with hairdryer. Quiet location. Easy access from motorway. Flat screen tv with a couple of English channels (volume was limited - a little too low for us but used subtitles.) Would have liked a telephone, kettle and fridge.
The young owners were enthusiastic and worked hard to please. The hotel had recently been refurbed and was modern and spotless. The food was excellent freshly prepared basic fayre, generous portions and good value. There was a large english group celebrating a 60th birthday, they were treated excellently and made to feel special. The 5 minute walk to maries cafe for a beer or coffee and a game of the most unusual blow football was a super experience. All within a 5 minute drive of the A26 motorway. Definitely re-book.
Polite, helpful staff, beautifully refurbished hotel, peaceful location.
Great location. Just off motorway & only 30mins from ferry port. Food excellent & very good value.
Proximity to the Eurotunnel for crossing. Comfort and amenities in the room compared to other "value" hotels in the vicinity.
This complex of hotels is very close to the Eurotunnel. Excellent family rooms with possibility to divide the space. Small kitchen unit with kettle, sink, fridge, everything!
very comfortable unfortunatley it was very noisy from the road running adjacent to the hotel servicing the eurotunnel shopping area.which spoiled our stay although when i booked i requester quiet rooms
The hotel was spotlessly clean. Very friendly reception. Large comfortable room.
The location just off the motorway and right next to the Cite Europe shopping and the Channel Tunnel was perfect. Room was very large and comfortable. Good for overnight stay before travelling on. Had to wait almost 15 mins to check-in whilst reception dealt with a small queue of people. Should be other staff available to help. We had just driven for 8 hours to get here and didn't appreciate the wait.
easy to find, well placed, quiet
Very clean, modern easily accessible to the tunnel, close to 'Cite Europe' shopping centre and the staff were very helpful & friendly and ample parking. Bathroom could be a little more private and the breakfast was a little expensive for what it was.
The hotel was new,very clean,comfortable,good vlaue for money and in a good location once you come off the tunnel near Calais-we would highly reccommend it The rooms were a little hot and the air conditioning did not work properly
The ability to have three adults in a room The heat, room could do with a fan it became most uncomfortable with window shut and noise unbearable with window open, we came in October, so dread to think what it would be like in the summer
The location is excellent for the channel tunnel, 24 hour reception and spacious comfortable room, plenty of parking. A good night's rest before a long drive south...
The owner was very friendly and informative about things to do in the area. The family room was very nicely decorated and very comfortable, my kids loved it.
Excellent guest house, which is not necessarily evident from the website. No drink facilities in our room, however we learnt that the previous guests had in fact stolen the coffee maker!
friendly welcome, great location, very comfortable. Just what we needed after a long day. would use again
It is a wonderful house, to stay there made you feel a part of France. It is really a magical space and the hospitality is charming and superb. We felt very looked after and yet perfect discretion was kept for a romantic few days away. I dont really understand why there is ambiguity over whether you pay for breakfast. You do. But that said, it is completely excellent and I have never relaxed so much over a hotel breakfast. Complete comfort was felt. On the second morning, one of glorious late autumn sunshine, Jean-Michel took the table onto the patio and gave breakfast in the garden. It was completely delightful. Also breakfast is very flexible, both days we were very late, but we were never rushed and always made to feel welcome. This really was the best.
Beautiful house - extremely friendly - everything was spotless - just wish we had been staying longer !
The staff were delightful, nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a very pleasant breakfast sitting overlooking the garden, a lovely calm start to a pre-Christmas shopping spree.
Unusual family room with the 2 bedrooms seperated by a bathroom which you had to walk through to access the 2nd bedroom. No tv in the main bedroom, poorly stocked mini bar....
The hotel itself is beautiful. The staff were absolutely lovely. The room was very pretty (we had the "Rome" room), the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was very good. We were on the second (top) floor and did not find it noisy at all (others have said it was). There are some very good restaurants in Calais about 15-20 minutes' walk from the hotel. Overall we had a lovely time and would definitely stay there again. The only complaint we had was that the chap who checked us in offered to bring breakfast to our room the next morning, but it didn't arrive and we ended up going down for it. We weren't particularly bothered as it was clearly a genuine mistake and the only off note in an otherwise very enjoyable weekend.
This is a beautifully restored and stylish old house with lots of personal touches in the themed bedrooms and in the lounge where we were served a tray of tea and coffee. The owners were such a nice couple - extremely welcoming and it was more like staying in a friend's home than in a hotel. We will definitely return there soon. Rather ugly bright blue patterned staircarpet to first floor which didn't really match the rest of the elegant, cream decor of the house. Maybe they were offered a cheap deal!!
Fantastic room, beautifully appointed, as was the bathroom. Thoroughly recommend the hotel. Madame Bisschop is a very welcoming hostess and has made all the rooms we saw (3 out of the 4 available) stunning. Breakfast was delicious, (real coffee for the first time during our stay in France this time! ) and beautifully presented. This small hotel has real class. We shall be recommending it. Nothing. Even the parking, which is on the street outside the hotel, was fine. (No comments on website yet about this hotel)
Parking was nearby and free. Night porter was very pleasant. Pleasant local bar/cafe next door where you can get a coffee and croissant or a drink!
Staff very helpful Only one comment, It states on hotel web site that WiFi is free, which is incorrect, had to pay for internet using WiFi, Therefore web site needs to be updated to stop misleading customers,
Very nice hotel. no complaints other than restaurant staff who came across as arrogant,slow to serve and generally unwelcomming
Good welcome and help from reception. Comfortable, clean room. Location is easy for the Channel ferry. The lighting isn't good. The corridors are in darkness and unless you know where the switches are it can be difficult to get around. The room was also poorly lit; just needed to be brighter.
comfort and location close to bars and restuarant
Good size room. Comfortable bed. Dodgy light switch in bathroom - overhead light not working
Friendly but unobtrusive service, clean and efficient. The guy at reception went out of his way to be helpful when my travel plans went adrift due to the current industrial action.
Great Location and staff spoke fantastic english.
The hotel was an overnight stop prior to catching the ferry. It was comfortable, well equiped and convenient for the town and beach with helpful staff.
Good value, excellent room with plenty of space for clothes etc. Good sized and equipped bathroom. Excellent staff. I used your hotel as a good example compared to the Ibis at Abbeville where I had to spend the following night! A rabbit hutch of a room with no drawers / hanging space. Thanks for a very good stay. No free champagne (only joking)
Excellent Restaurant Rooms small but confortable, good location
Previous occupants had smoked in room, and stale cigarette smoke could be smelt, which was most unpleasant.
The room was clean and quiet and we enjoyed a good night's sleep. We had a very good dinner in the restaurant. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was a little warm for our liking, think it was next to the boiler room as the wall was hot! We felt the wine was a little overpriced but they were small niggles and did not spoil our overall enjoyment.
The staff, who were very friendly and helpful. Value for money. Breakfast. Nothing
easy access to ferry port
Friendly staff, clean and comfortable hotel close to the ferry port. Evening meal good in hotel restaurant. Ideal for overnight stay before ferry crossing. We did not have buffet but did note that if eating late in evening, choice of buffet items was limited.
Convenience to the ferry, simple, clean room. The trundle bed provided the triple. The electricity went out while dining. We paid the waitress, but we saw several who did not pay and left. I lost the key in the dark, found it and sent it by mail to the hotel. We were in room 31. We were informed it was a triple, the trundle bed was small and cramped, not suitable for an adult, but we used it. It was dark outside getting to our room. Had to use a flashlight to find the keyhole. Nice staff, not much English, but it is France.
check in easy. parking secure. lots of hot water. everything we needed was at hand in the room
Friendly atmosphere and food excellent
Convenience of location to the ferry, restaurants and bars nearby, the room was clean & very efficient service from the staff.
Well placed for an early ferry departure or a late arrival in france. rooms basic but have all necessary facilities. Car parking arrangements are a bit hit and miss.
The staff was friendly and helpful at all times. The food was surprisingly good. Ideally based for those travellers catching the ferry to the UK.
very close to some fantastic restaurants,a market and a fish market.plenty of parking.staff very helpful and hotel itself spotless. fair amount of traffic noise
Hotel was in a good position, the staff very very helpful and pleasant, very welcoming none
location the carpet in the corridor are very stained and dirty not a very good impression
Location for bars & restaurants
The room was very clean and comfortable,the breakfast was good,the staff were good,the location was very good!
The hotel staff were just about the best I have ever experienced at a motel style hotel, the food was great, well presented and varied choice available.
very close to eurotunnel, nice enough rooms,lovely breakfast, staff friendly, stayed twice now so pleased with hotel
This hotel is very good value for money. the room was clean tidy and basic and thats all you pay for. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. This is the third time i've stayed here.
Restaurant menu needs revising many of the items on the menu were not available
24 hour manned reception.
We came late and slept as we were driving early the next morning
dinner offers food very good mould on wall in bedroom television located too high up to view not a good reception on english channels room needs upgradeing
Convinient to the Port. staff good nice bar
