easy access to ferry port,and shops.Very easy to get to different towns Not having a lift, which will be difficult if i had bring my mother with me, but i still enjoyed staying at the hotel
Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, lovely buffet breakfast.
The free parking right outside. The whole hotel is tired and needs money spending on it.
Very convenient, warm welcome, very nice breakfast, comfortable beds, staff very accommodating, able to use garage. Bathroom very small, but we knew this having stayed before; we requested room on first floor (no lift) with shower, because I am partly disabled
The staff were helpfull and friendly. No
Very friendly hotel
It was clean and comfortable
We have stayed in this hotel many times The improvements have been good Garage secure and now has remote control which is much better No
The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful and courteous. No
Quite close to the ferry harbour. Possibility to park the car in a garage. They allowed dogs. The check-in was a bit difficult, since the reception was not occupied. No lift in the house.
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.
The view of the port. Some of the food at breakfast was unappetising - burnt.
it was convienient for the ferry port. there were no coffe/tee making facilities in the room. Although the rooms were clean and tidy there was a significant over use of disinfectant which in some circumstances could have caused people with asthma breathing difficulties, as we had to leave the windows open for a significant time as it was quite unbearable. based on the campanile we stayed at prior to arriving at the hotel residence du golf we were extremely disappointed and surprised that it cost much more as the facilities were basic and would border on hostel accomodation and not a two star hotel.
well located, closed to restaurants, nice welcome N/A
Very good location overlooking the sea. Room was warm, comfortable and spacious. Good value for money. Reception staff helpful and polite.Food at restaurant next door excellent and very reasonable. Nothing negative to say.
Helpfulness of reception No Wi-Fi
The cooking & fridge facilities combined with a mini kitchen
Nice accomodation very convenient to Calais ports/train. We had 5 rooms - everybody was happy. Good value for money.
Great location,staff friendly.multi channel TV,restaurants nearby,inexpensive,,,,only problem for me was width of single bed otherwise OK
easy location for the ferries.Enjoyed a walk along the pier before catching the ferry
It was a comfortable hotel for a 1 night stop over No Complaints
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)
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.
friendly welcome, great location, very comfortable. Just what we needed after a long day. would use again
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.
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!!
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....
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.
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!
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.
Friendly atmosphere and food excellent
check in easy. parking secure. lots of hot water. everything we needed was at hand in the room
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.
Previous occupants had smoked in room, and stale cigarette smoke could be smelt, which was most unpleasant.
Excellent Restaurant Rooms small but confortable, good location
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.
The staff, who were very friendly and helpful. Value for money. Breakfast. Nothing
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.
Proximity to the Eurotunnel for crossing. Comfort and amenities in the room compared to other "value" hotels in the vicinity.
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 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 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 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 hotel was spotlessly clean. Very friendly reception. Large comfortable room.
easy to find, well placed, quiet
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!
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.
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 service was wonderful - so personal - they couldn't do enough for us. The food also was excellent but unfortunately my husband doesn't like a continental breakfast! We've stayed before and hopefully we shall certainly stay there again. Really lovely people.
It was quiet and the restaurant was excellent. The rooms were basic and rather dark.
Really happy and kind staff. The restaurant is excellent. Fantastic for an overnight stay and great meal in France.
Evening meals were of an excellent standard. Staff very tolerant of our poor french explaining in English where needed None
This was the last stop after driving up from Spain with our very large dog (55kgs!). The hotel/staff were most accommodating. We had to be near the tunnel and this hotel met our requirements spot on. Out in the countryside which suited our (and the dog's needs). The evening meal was superb. Probably the best of the entire trip. The decor was very French. The hotel is in a hamlet so there is nothing else. Even the only cafe had been closed down, so drinks only available at the hotel - no problem.The hard bolster pillow was very uncomfortable so not a good nights sleep, but this is purely a minor niggle to an otherwise good overnight stop.
Very friendly staff and excellent restaurant, but with a limited menu The faciiities were tired, but everything worked, and the hotel more than justified its 2* rating, since the warmth of the welcome made up for its other limitations
Rooms, food, staff and service all excellent. None
Nice setting & convenient for Boulogne Ferry port Good quality food for adults, very poor choice for children (only 1 option!) Average standard of room & service in the restaurant was very slow
The welcome was warm and sincere upon arrival and the staff did speak some English. The room was spacious and very clean and more than adequate for an overnight stay - I now wish I'd booked a couple of nights here and used it as a base to tour the local countryside. dinner at night was excellent and there was a choice of different fixed price menus. Overall, a most enjoyable stay and I would certainly return to this property. Nothing really. A couple of bulbs didn't work on the table lamp but I'm sure that could have been easily fixed if I'd have mentioned it.
Warm reception upon arrival, and that excellent service continued throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble, even when we came down very late for breakfast.
We will stay there again. It suited our needs perfectly as a place to stay for one night in central Calais. It is very nice being opposite the park and we liked having a small balcony. The yard in which we parked our car is secure and private. The owner, Benoit Grancier is charming and very helpful. Very close to tunnel/ferry. The shower stall needs a curtain or the shower head should be repositioned as the water drips onto the bathroom floor. There should be a thick bathroom mat for this purpose and also to stand on when leaving the shower. Thicker and larger towels would be nice too. A toilet brush should be available to the guest. The TV does not have a remote control.
Do not be put off by the outside its been refurbished excellent value for money
Very helpful and courteous staff. The location was ideal, the adjacent park very beautiful; breakfast was excellent! I am sure facilities will be much improved after their in-process work on the building! No hair dryer or shower, only iron tub w/ handheld wand.
The staff were friendly, excellent location, wasnt noisy, very clean and comfortable. Great value for money.
Very friendly and helpful staff Clean renovated old room, modern bathroom Generous breakfast During the season the parking could be a problem
seemed very run down
Hotel was spotless, especially the bathrooms, which are very nice. Breakfast was good, with plenty of choice of cereal, fruit, yoghurts and bread and croissant. I don't know why he took the booking if he didn't have the rooms we requested.
Room comfortable and warm on a cold night.Bathroom facilities excellent Hotel is being renovated and bare plaster walls etc not exactly welcoming. Lack of tea and coffee making facilities a dissappointment
generally claen & comfortable beds a little uncomnfortable
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.
Polite, helpful staff, beautifully refurbished hotel, peaceful location.
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.
Great location. Just off motorway & only 30mins from ferry port. Food excellent & very good value.
Convinient to the Port. staff good nice bar
Restaurant menu needs revising many of the items on the menu were not available
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.
We came late and slept as we were driving early the next morning
24 hour manned reception.
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.
very close to eurotunnel, nice enough rooms,lovely breakfast, staff friendly, stayed twice now so pleased with hotel
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
convenient location, close to shops and restaurants It is not inviting hotel with a warm feeling one would like.
Very welcoming, good breakfast
Clean,comfortable easy access to port
it was very clean and all staff spoke good english when in the bar it was to quite ,some background music would be nice
Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced and friendly, helpful staff.
night porter service no tea making facilities in the room. We would have paid extra to get them.
Very convenient for town and beach,bedroom clean but old fashioned,and quite small. Very delapidated exterior.,very dated inside. Could do with a refurb.
Staff were very helpful & good location of hotel with easy parking
Nothing, really... The hotel is in decay, really poor and unconfortable.
Access to the town and short distance from Eurotunnel
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, comfortable, warm,inexpensive Cramped, lack of evening meal
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
Clean, excellent late check in facilities, value for money, easy to find, excellent breakfast I had a little trouble with the website
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
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, 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)
Cheap and convenient location The room was feeezing when we arrived - we could hardly get to sleep!
location and value food
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
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!
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.
Hotel was in a good position, the staff very very helpful and pleasant, very welcoming none
Very handy for all shops and resturants toilet and shower room needs some attention
found with ease (opposite market square) clean affordable room continental breakfast was good although the coffee could have been hotter but hey...no big deal for the price, I found this hotel 2 star, in price 3 star in value
good location, close to bars and restaurants
helpful staff,good location very noisy at weekend till 2am
Central location Nothing to do with the hotel itself, but late on Saturdaynight the local clubs had noisy patrons leaving at 03-00. Ask for a room at the rear of the hotel to avoid this.
nothing it was old ans smelt of damp
The friendly staff , Cheap price and the location of the hotel for shops, Bars and restaurents.
Fantastic location. Lovely balcony room overlooking the square. Very charming Night Porter (possibly the manager/owner), who made us feel very welcome as we went out for the night and saw us totter back across the square, having the door open with a broad smile. Personable.
Convenient location for ferry port pleasant staff & great breakfast
My stay at the hotel was for 1 night only so I dont think I experianced the full features but the best feature by far was the friendlyness of the staff, polite and helpfull. The whole hotel is in desperate need of full renovation and modernisation in all areas. Parking is expensive and very limited. What appears to be a permanent fun fair outside the hotel is very noisy till very late.
Quiet location, near shops
Easy acess to city
Staff was helpful, room was fine. Wew arrived at 4.45pm, in the rain, by a cab, as we had advised when we made the booking. Hotel was closed until 6.30 pm (actually opened about 6.45). Hotel management advised that the fact of not opening on Sunday until 6.30 was on the web site. We never accessed the web site, and relied on yopu. Since you knew we were arriving at 5 pm, and the hpotel said you know they were closed 8until 6.30, you ought of have told us, or not accepted the booking.Fortunately, staff and patrons in a neighbouring restaurant were helpful. I consider the problem to be that of your booking service, not the hotel.
clean rooms no shower in bathroom
Large room for family of 4 (2 doubles and room for travel cot). 5 minutes from Ferry terminal, late check in until 11pm - we were still on the ferry at 10.30 pm so called in - staff friendly and didn't seem to be concerned we may be late.
nothing, the hotel room smelt terrible and didnt finish our stay there the room smelt mouldy, bed was hard and uncomfortable, no tea and coffee as described furniture was inadequate.
close to ferryport and bars/restaurants but in a quiet street. good value for money and classic french decor!
Only there one night. Close to bars and restaurants. Quite basic but clean and comfortable. Excellent value. No dining area at all so breakfast had to be served in your room. (Some people would clearly like that).
the bed was great. very firm, very nice. the room was scrupulously clean. i liked having breakfast in the room. the room was not the least bit luxurious. but it was clean and a good value for the price. no real bathroom door on the WC--just a plastic bi-fold door that ended about six inches above the floor.
Clean. Reception was good Old fashioned and very noisy and no car park facilities
The hotel is family run, The owners and staff were very helpful and friendly to everyone .
it was a very bad hotel not clean at all
Restaurant and staff ok No Parking, very poor quality room, not particularly clean
Breakfast was not served in time
The hotel was cheap. The room was not clean, sheets were missing on some of the beds, breakfast was not ready in time (we had to leave for the ferry before we ate our breakfast), there was only one shower and one toilet for the whole hotel and the shower was smelling very badly.
Absolutely nothing. The place was absolutely filthy and extremely noisy. Do not stay here. It is noisy, filthy and falling apart. The room had two singles pushed together with a double sheet that was not wide enough to cover them. The sheet was sandy, as were those on the bunk beds used by the children. The toilet was shabby, down the hall and had a poo in it when we arrived. The floor was filthy and the curtains did not obscure the streetlights from directly outside the window. In the room below some kind of snooker/pool party was carrying on all night and still going on when we finally gave up trying to sleep at 4.50am. Throughout the night other "guests" were making a lot of noise, including disproportionate number of small children considering we arrived at 10pm. Revolting.
This is the most disgusting place I have ever entered. I am most dissappointed with Booking.com. I have relied on their services for several years when travelling around europe with my children and have always trusted that any Hotel on their site will be clean and decent even if it is Basic. Le Deltaplane is DISGUSTING!!!!! It smells, the paint and wallpaper is peeling, the windows in the rooms we had would not shut, we were covered in bites which were not mosquito bites the next morning.
Pleasant friendly staff, good food, easy access, very 'local' and interesting. Bed comfortable. 2Nd floor room, stairs narrow and steep. No en-suite except for a washbasin (1 dirty 'weak' shower for all rooms on the 2nd floor, one general toilet for guest use on 1st floor - usually engaged). Needs redecoration. 220V socket loose, cover falling off exposing connections - dangerous.
Staff were so lovely the beds were huge and very comfortable! Bit strange having the shower at the end of the bed but very convenient and good value for money None
the suite was creatively decorated to the theme of the name (Bombay Suite = indian decorations and music). we were made to feel very welcome and it had a relaxed atmosphere. it was quite and cosy and could be romantic. We could not book in before 4.30 and this was a bit of a problem as we were on foot and had to carry our luggage around all day until we could check in. the outside of the building looks somewhat ambiguous but inside is amazing!! a gem in the midst of a grey Calais town centre.
Sandrine made us feel really welcome and was really accommodating when we arrived with an unexpected extra visitor. The rooms we stayed in were absolutely amazing. I would definately recommend it for couples who want to experience something a bit different.
The decor was beautifully done right down to the last detail. The food was great. Fantastic atmosphere and 10/10 for all the small touches. I loved it and would definately stay again.
I totally enjoyed the themes. Well done, I would certainly stay there again.
Most wonderful host, room was beautifully designed. We stayed in the Bombay room. Nothing
Nice room, nice bathroom arranged with lots of taste. All is very clean, it was a pleasure to stay there. Little details that make pleasure, such as nice candles, good smelling towels... Very friendly person that holds the hotel. All goes together, nothing to complain about! Nothing!
The owner and hostess was extremely friendly. She greeted us with a charming smile and an unbelievable amount of patience for our butchering of the French language. The rooms were surprisingly large and wonderfully decorated with an overwhelming attention to detail. Even the toilet roll holders fit the themes of the respective rooms. It was comfortable and had a decent selection of Television programs. The hotel is situated in a quiet area but at the same time about a 2 minutes drive from the Ferry Port to Dover. Furthermore, it is in 5 - 10 minute walking distance from a cluster of restaurants, which boasted a variety of foods from different countries. All in all, the hotel stay was a beautiful surprise and is worth a trip alone.
The owners were charming and had spent a lot of time and energy decorating our roo in Moroccan style. Very clean and comfortable. Restaurants in a square around the corner but all were bad tourist traps. better to go further afield if you are looking for proper french food.
Great little B&B, very central. We had the Agadir suite which is huge. Great attention to detail in Moroccan decor. Sandrine, the proprietress, is very friendly and welcoming. Parking in street is no problem. If you are stopping off in Calais without children, then this is a must!
This was a teriffic surprize. Both my wife and I enjoyed our stay. I would enthusiasticly recommend this hotel.
I was charged more than quoted when I booked on your web site.
Staff were extremely friendly and for a 1 star hotel, the cleanliness and comfort was exceptional. Overall a very enjoyable experience for a stop over.
convenience to port and location to centre
The breakfast was good value for money One of the rooms smelt of smoke
easy to find and central location, good description how to find hotel
Again, we were staying in room No 226 on June 10, same as June 8, 2010. So, all good points were still the same - cosy, comfortable, warm - could be chilly during summer nights and early mornings, but the room heater solved this issue. Despite the duty manager told us on June 6 (upon our check-out) how to log onto their Balladins internet "Eucopia", we could not make it work again ! We followed the duty manager's instruction on how to log onto internet, yet, their Eucopia postmaster never cared to send us (our mobiles) the password for us to log onto internet ! - no matter how many times we tried, we never received their reply with password for log-on !
It was warm on a cold night. The receptionist was pleasant. We could park the car close to the entrance. It was value for money We did struggle to locate the hotel when we came off the ferry from England. My wife would have liked a lift to reach the first floor as she has a painful foot at the moment
friendliness of the staff No mirror in the bedroom!
I organised for myself and 5 friends to stay at Hotel Balladins as it was the nearest hotel to attend the Calais "Swamp Blues" festival at le Centre Culturel Gérard Philipe. For our needs, the hotel was perfect. Clean, low cost, very modest, but all that we needed. The hotel staff over the weekend were noticeably pleasant and helpful (and spoke good English!). We also liked being able to buy a decent coffee in the breakfast room without having a whole breakfast. Booking was easy on-line. My friends commended me for finding Hotel Balladins Calais. I will try to book their again next year! Just suggestions: Let people use the brekfast area as a lounge/meeting room during the day - perhaps a corner with more comfortable chairs and a TV. Alternatively, use the entry hall area more creatively. Small suggestions - they won't stop us staying!
This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel - the reason being that our usual hotel was fully booked. As an alternative we were pleasantly suprised. It was clean, comfortable and the staff were extremely polite and welcoming. We would not hesitate to come here again. Very good value for money No kettle to make a drink and no extra pillows!
