Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steve7553 Great location for channel crossing
I arrived at the hotel after a long drive and we were greeted at reception by a very friendly receptionist. We were both very tired so after a meal we retired to bed fairly early, unfortunately I wasn't asleep for long as the local bars kept us awake until the early hours playing very loud music and people enjoying themselves.
I mentioned this in the morning to the lady at the desk and she said that we should request a room at the front of the hotel in future. I feel we should have been made aware of such a problem when we booked in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cangyroo Great Accom, Breakfast not so great
Travel: two adults and 7 year old twins. Really enjoyed the stay overnight at this hotel, couldn't fault the accommodation and staff were excellent. Our room had a lovely view over the harbour, and the hotel was quiet (sonically). The breakfast was not so great... maybe this was an 'off' day. They did seem a little short staffed. The food was tasteless and bland, and we ended up not eating it. The coffee was lovely though. We booked and pre-paid online, so were surprised when asked for the €1.70 at checkout. This is for local french tax.... I checked back on our booking paperwork, and there was NO MENTION of this surcharge. I have no problem paying it, I was just surprised and don't see why this can't have been included in the booking price. I would stay there again, but I wouldn't include breakfast. (so 4 stars rather than 5)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mary51 Overnight before Channel Crossing
Typical reliable Holiday Inn - Very comfortable clean room, actually quite roomy. We arrived late and had reserved the secure parking. It was very difficult to get into the locked garage/box with our BMW station wagon. Next time would opt for the street parking and take my chance at finding a spot.The bar area was nice for a glass of wine and snacks and the breakfast was very good. WiFi was quite good too. I would stay here again when taking the ferry the next morning, It is more convenient to the ferry slip than the Eurotunnel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by andypkent good location
Good location for ferries and centre ville. Clean comfortable room, nice views over harbour. Plemty of public free parking nearby . Helpful and friendly staff throughout. Only critisism is that the hot and cold buffet breakfast is good but overpriced at 15 euros.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by UKTraveller96 Excellent location but renovating necessary
The positive thing is the excellent location if you want to go to or come from the Ferry Port. But the rooms (furniture and styling) meanwhile look quite old, so that a renovation seems to be necessary. We stayed at this hotel twice this year: From August 15th to August 16th (Room # 507) and from August 25th to 26th (room # 403). When ckecking out after our first night we complained about dirty joints between the tiles in the shower cabin. The receptionist thanked us for reporting this and promised to pass the information to the cleaners. But the bathroom cleanness ath the second stay was hardly better: This time it was the shower hose which had the same dirty marks as the tile joints in the other room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Colin300 Excellent Service
We had booked a family room which was an excellent size, with 2 proper double beds and a small sitting area with sofa/table. Room was nicely fitted out. Only the bathroom showed signs of wear and tear, but was still perfectly ok.
The room wasn't ready when we arrived - it wasn't a problem to us - but we were offered free drinks whilst we waited. The room was ready in about 30 minutes but we were given a bottle of wine to compensate. I can't imagine that sort of treatment at a hotel in the UK!
Bar was nice but we didn't try evening meal in the hotel, as there was plenty of cafes in the square behind. Breakfast was fine - no wait and plenty of selection, albeit quite expensive.
Parking was on street outside hotel - free and really convenient.

Overall good,unfortunately very noisy Saturday night ( in square not hotel) however air con machinery under our room. Needed fresh air so wanted window open.
Electricity went off on morning of our departure carried cases down 5 flights of stairs nobody offered assistance. We are in late 60's
Breakfast not good certainly not worth 15euros.
We went down 10.15 on Sunday. Waitress made us feel uncomfortable constantly putting things on next table, loudly.
Other staff all really nice, Particularly receptionists. .

Thank you for reserving the room we asked for; top floor, end of corridor, quiet room as I have M.E. Unlike many hotels, our request was actually granted. Parking facilities very good. We will stay with you again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Texy Fine for the purpose
The location was PERFECT - 5 mins from the ferry - couldn't have been better.
The room was very comfortable - two roomy, clean double beds for us and our two kids - no complaints here.
The hotel itself - a wee bit dated and tired but it didn't detract from our stay.
The price? Maybe 10 quid too dear but goodish value.
We'd stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Svo14 Great overnight stop for Channel tunnel
We arrived late from driving from south of france so we were very tired with 3 young children to settle down for the night. The lady on reception was extremely helpful. We did however have a bit of trouble with the 'secure parking' which we booked prior to check in. One parking space lock-up was blocked by cars parking on the road in front of the gates, the second space offered was in a rickety old garage with a wooden door which was off its runners. We were too tired to continue with the parking scenario so we plumped for parking on the road.
The room overlooked the sea port which was a hit with our 9 and 3yr old, the beds were very comfortable and very welcoming after a 14hr journey. Could've done with more sugar for the hospitality tray,and hotel smelt a bit fusty probably as its a bit old. We left too early the next morning to have breakfast as we had an early euro tunnel crossing booked. Overall the hotel served its purpose for us so would use it again but won't bother about the parking next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Minnie2013 Comfortable stay after long drive
We arrived at the hotel after a long drive and then straight off the ferry from Dover. The hotel is easy to find and close to the ferry terminal. Parking was available on the road outside the hotel and we could see the car from the room. The staff on reception were very pleasant, which makes a difference after a long day with 2 kids in a car, the room was comfortable and quite big with a great view of the ferry terminal. As we arrived around 730pm, we basically went to sleep and then up early next day to drive to our destination. For an overnight stop to break up our journey, this was perfect. No complaints, and will definitely stay again next year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GarrathE Superb stop for the ferry
This HI is 5 mins from the Calais ferry terminal, and while there is free on street parking all around they provide secure parking at a reasonable charge if your vehicle is loaded with valuables as ours was. The staff are pleasant and friendly, and amply recognise Priority Club members. The room on both legs was clean, warm and dry (more than we can say about the HI we used nearer the border with Spain). It has at least half a dozen decent restaurants within 5 mins walk. All in all a perfect place to stay after a 10 hour, 1,000 km drive across France on the return leg. It was good for the outward leg too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoAnne13 Friendly, helpful staff
We recently stayed at your hotel for 2 nights. One at the beginning of our trip and another near the end. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. This was our first trip to France and we have limited French language abilities and we really appreciated the friendly help. They had lots of good suggestions about the area which turned out to be very accurate. We enjoyed our entire visit to France and staying at your hotel was a great way to start it. We would certainly stay again and would recommend your hotel to any friends travelling your way.

Thank you for a very relaxing overnight stay with our golden retriever. The staff were friendly and very helpful, despite the fact that our French is minimal.
We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others, the fact that it is so near to the ferry terminal is a bonus and we were able to wander around the harbour which proved very interesting.
Once again, thank you.

Ideal location for harbour and town. Sad to see so many shops closed . Upgrade of town square in progress caused some disruption. Hotel becoming a bit faded could do with a coat of paint. Restaurant food bland and over priced but good value on wine. All a bit bland really but comfortable and close to the beach although with bridge closed at present detour required to get there.

The lady who was at the reception when we checked in was outstanding and is a credit to the hotel as my youngest Granddaughter was rather unwell and she did everything possible to find a doctor and could not do enough for us to make our stay comfortable

Rooms, especially the bathroom, need updating. Seemed to be a problem with keycards not working as everyone seemed to be back and forward to reception. Staff are very helpful and location is perfect for ferries/Chunnel
