Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dcs49 Great value and friendly helpful staff
This was our first stay at a HI in France and it surpassed expectations.
Room was large and airy. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only drawback was a dog owner leaving his or her animals alone in the room all evening. Naturally they barked incessantly.
No complaint made as staff have enough to do without getting involved with thoughtless pet owners.
Both bar and restaurant meals were well presentedand good value.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jester69 staff & service
It is over a year since we stayed here and the Dining Area for breakfast has moved. We were not impressed with the standard of the cooked breakfast and the cornflakes are now dispensed from a plastic container. The cornflakes were stale. The evening meal was poor. The lamb dish was not very good as the quality of the meat was not very good and the vegetables were not very hot or properly cooked; The gnocchi dish was not very good as the gnocchi was heavy & greasy. The cost was high & the quality poor. No one came to ask if the meal was o.k.. One of the waitresses was obviously a heavy smoker judging by the strong toxic smoke smell that accompanied her presence.. The bar was not staffed adequately as there was no one there and a staff member had to be found to locate the bar person.

Executive room was fine for 2 adults 2 small children, hotel felt spacious and enjoyed an excellent dinner/service which was priced about right. Good to play pool and have a swim too.
Perfect for tunnel/shopping will definitely return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fatturkey Comfortable Room but . .
The hotel is very well located, being close to the motorway (A16), Eurotunnel and the Calais/Dunkerque ferries. In addition, it has it's own grounds and is not overlooked, although the view from your room may be a disappointment, as ours was! Plenty of car parking areas.
Inside, there is a large, well lit reception area with helpful, bilingual staff. The room was spacious and comfortable with TV, including some UK channels, tea/coffee making facilities and hair dryer. There is a pool and fitness area if you so desire. Disappointingly you have to ask for access to the internet if you want it.
We took the evening meal in the restaurant but were disappointed, it not being value for money, e.g. the veal was described as being cooked with ceps and other pan fried vegetables, however my wife counted one cep! However, you can eat in the small, cosy bar alongside the restaurant but I understand the menu choice is quite simple. On the plus side, the breakfast choice was excellent with hot and cold choices.
Would we stay again? . . . certainly but we'd probably pass on the evening meal!

Stayed there many times, I know what yo expect and always leave satisfied. The only slight quip is food is overpriced but it tastes good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Francophile2013 Perfect for a stopover
Just to qualify the review - I used my Holiday Inn points to pay for our stay.
Plenty of parking space, some of it well sheltered from the strong wind which was present on both our stays. Room was large and comfortable. TV showed several English speaking channels. Room Service food was good, reasonably priced and was delivered hot and on time. A bit nondescript from the outside but inside was fine, in fact the foyer was impressive.
One gripe - breakfast cost 17 Euros! You can pay less than that in France for a 3 course lunch with wine and coffee. We didn't take the breakfast so I don't know what you get but if its a coffee and a couple of croissants then its way overpriced, if its a full English Buffet then that's far too much for me on an early start and a full days driving.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrsMan Great stop over and will use again
Great stop over. Arrived in Calais for one night before going further into Europe. Great to see a hotel still has smoking room options, a limited option these days.
Room really adequate. Staff friendly and helpful.
More choice of food on the bar menu would be better, as having stayed here a few times now, getting a bit bored of burger. Though don't want to pay the prices in the restaurant, as choices of food a bit ove the top!
Overall, a great place for a stop over and will stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JayGee53 So Comfortable
I have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions, over several years. It is consistently good and very comfortable, both in the restaurant and the hotel itself.
Ideally located for access to the Cite Europe shopping centre and the Eurotunnel service as well as the A16 motorway, it provides the ideal location for an overnight stay or longer!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bertie40 perfect location
just returned from our first stay at holiday inn Coquelles Calais. we were given connecting rooms as requested as we had our two grandchildren with us. The rooms were well equipped and very clean. There was plenty of safe parking and the Eurotunnel and Cite Europe are only 5 minutes away by car.We will definitely choose this hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MikeH7 Excellent staff
The Holiday inn at Coquelles has some of the best staff that I have come across in the many hotels that I have visited. however the rooms are looking tired and its all in the detail, when you book an executive room you expect an executive level but the room we had was showing signs of wear and tear and the bathroom needed a good clean and re grout. the coffee at breakfast is awful and one thing that they need to improve on,

Stayed here in the past under different owners. Changes have been made which bring it to the standards of the HIV group. We stay regularly in Calais and will not hesitate to use this hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MartinSi69 Nice stay as always in this hotel
We have stayed in this hotel several times now on the way to Great Britain. The location of the hotel is very nice because it takes only 20 minutes to the ferry terminal.
The staff at the reception and in the bar is very friendly.
The beds are comfortable and the room is nice and clean.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo16 Disappointing Stay
We were somewhat disappointed by our stay at the Coquelles Holiday Inn recently. Being a business traveller that regularly stays in Coquelles before crossing to the UK, I have stayed in most of the hotels here. I had enjoyed a stay here in 2007, and as the other hotel I usually stay in was priced the same at short notice I thought I'd stay here again for a change. The public areas of the hotel are very tired with dirty carpets, scuffed walls, ancient lifts...etc. The bedroom whilst comfy had an aged bathroom which didn't really reflect 3* quality. Most disappointing, however, was that after a 12 hour journey we arrived at the hotel hungry and thirsty. We looked at the restaurant menu, and there was nothing to tempt us. We then had a look at the bar menu: 9 Euros for a Croque Monsieur, 10 Euros for a Hamburger, and 7 Euros for a pint of lager (prices from memory#! I realise that hotels make a large part of their revenue from the meals but at these extortionate prices we ate crisps and cakes out of the car, and drank our own soft drinks... We had the breakfast included option with the room, so went down early in the morning. The croissants were less fresh than on a package trip to Ibiza recently #!!!# and the cooked option was inedible and barely warm #gristle sausages, hard scrambled egg...etc). I am a member of IHG rewards, and no mention of this was made on checkin or checkout and I certainly didn't receive any benefits. Lastly, the guy who checked us out had a serious personality issue. In short, I wouldn't stay here again and I cannot recommend it over any of the hotels at Cité d'Europe despite the grounds and offer of a pool...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by richardg A Quiet night
The hotel is set in parkland out of town but coveniently close to the Dunkirk Calais Boulogne autoroute with easy access. The night was quiet and comfortable. My wife did not feel my movements on the bed and commented that the mattress was better than our own at home. Unfortunately we did not have the time to try all of the facilities. Might stay for two nights next time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Funny1 Good hotel very close to the ferry terminal yet out in the countryside
We selected this hotel as it is a 10 minute drive to the ferry terminal but outside the town with good and plenty of safe parking places.
The hotel is in large grounds and well kept. The rooms are not enormous but good for a short stay, comfortable, clean and well equipped.
We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of food in the evening. A good selection of dishes, well cooked with friendly service.
Breakfast, as is usual in France, was expensive and not really worth the price. Additionally, various items were not replenished during our stay, but this was perhaps a one off!
All in all, a very good address for travellers wanting to stop before or after travelling on the ferries between Dover and Calais. We would certainly stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pocket Great contrast to the previous night in Strasbourg
We were accommodated to eat a restaurant meal at the bar so we could stay with our dog. The room had air conditioning. Breakfast service was good and the hot food was hot. All these things were lacking in our previous nights stay so were very welcome.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stevo64 Non existant bar staff
Checkin was smooth and fast although no upgrade or recognition of IHG rewards member. Waited at bar for 15 minutes without being served even after two barstaff had said good evening and continued to ignore me and (eventually) around 10 other guests queueing.
Room was comfortable and clean but tea making tray had one dirty cup and an opened half packet of sugar.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alexadani Beautiful setting
I always travel with my two little dogs and Holiday Inn in general is great for this. This was a very nice room, spacious and clean as are most of the Holiday Inns. But the huge selling point here is the beautiful grounds surrounding the hotel - my dogs must have had at least 7 walks in our one-night stay! Just lovely and would definitely book here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by winklerp overnight stay
My husband and myself stayed overnight (Sunday) as a break on a driving trip from England to the South of Germany. The ferry over had been delayed and it was midnight when we finally arrived, but the reception staff we very pleasant and helpful even at this late hour.Checking in was swift and I was asked if I wanted internet access and then given the appropriate information to allow this. Breakfast was between 06:30 and 09:30. We found a really good range of foods (cereal, various breads, english as well as continental breakfasts and yogurts) and we were asked on arrival at the breakfast room if we wanted tea or coffee. There was also fruit juices and bottled water that you could help yourself to.
The only thing that caused us any concern was finding the hotel with TomTom as there is not a property number only the name of the road it is on and Avenue Charles De Gaulle is rather a long road. It would help (for this reason only) if a number could be supplied with the address.
We stayed at the same hotel a week later on our trip home and will most certainly be using again on any subsequent trips we make to visit our relatives in Germany.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pinarello Comfortable overnight
We stayed on the way out on a long road trip round france and on the way back via Eurotunnel both ways. The hotel was ideally situated just over the motorway from the tunnel. We only had time to check in and have a meal so being out of Calais centre didn't worry us. All the staff were helpful and friendly, the rooms comfortable as we come to expect from the brand. It was a welcome surprise to find tea making facilities in room. Our restaurant meals were both good, breakfast fairly standard for France but not to be faulted. Check in for Rewards Club Members was easy - no fumbling for passports or internet print outs.
