Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fafanie Excellent staff and service but noisy bed
The staff is very friendly. The hotel is well good located. The room was rather clean and comfortable. We had a view on the port, but unfortunately, it was very noisy.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lilliputian Friendly and courteous
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Denise11 Friendly staff
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

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by redrum73 rooms need updating
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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nicholas1960 Great for ferry and more
Stop over for arrival evening and departure evening.
Good standard for rooms. Helpful staff, without being pushy. Did not use bar/cafe but tea coffee in rooms, so have only given middle rating.
Very central for visiting town

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sparkle Comfortable bed but shame about the room
I was staying with friends on an overnight stop. Neither of the two waste bins in the bathroom or room had been emptied from the previous guest when I arrived. After ringing to ask for this to be done someone appeared 15 minutes later and did empty them The toilet didn't flush properly. All in all this was a disappointing experience - we usually stay at the Coquelles Holiday Inn and will certainly be returning there in future.

First class service from the moment I checked in. Staff remembered by name.I had a snack in the resturant on each evening which was very well prepared. I left early in the morning and was provided with a very good breakfast bag.
The room was comfortable, warm, and clean. Overall and excellent two days.

We were overwhelmed by the kindness of Pierre who was lovely to talk with and incredibly helpful. Everyone we encountered in the town was warm and welcoming and the hotel was clean and the room was well appointed. Overall it was an excellent experience and we would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Auchan Very friendly staff
We stay there five to six times a year. This time the impression was worse than normal - regrettably. Firstly, the restaurant was closed on a Sunday evening. Normally it is open. Secondly, we did not get anything for being Club members. In the past we always got a bottle of wine plus a discount on the restaurant meals.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UncleNeil Just what the Doctor ordered
The Holiday Inn Calais is very handily placed for the passenger ferry terminal. Despite it snowing outdoors the room was warm and cosy, and we were able to catch up with the British news due to the good selection of TV channels available. The room was also well-appointed with a table and chairs which were great. The helpful staff arranged our early morning taxi and made us feel welcome. We had a good experience here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Muppet Very comfortable and family friendly
We used this hotel to break up our journey travelling to Chamonix to go on a family skiing trip.The hotel was very clean and family friendly,the only complaint we have is that the breakfast was not of a very good standard and not much choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sande56DB Welcome return
Just back from a quick break in between Christmas and New Year.
Our second visit to the Holiday Inn Calais and we were not disappointed, a very warm welcome and pleasant rooms overlooking the Harbour.
Breakfast was at a very good standard and wide choice, which set us up for the day ahead.
The only bad thing was the weather, but thats wasn't the hotels fault but due to the Ideal location for bars and restaurants within walking distance,wew were not spoilt for choice - we look forward to returning again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BoredTryingToFindAName Nice hotel with secure parking in the town
I used to use this hotel years ago. I was stuck for a hotel in Calais and decided to visit again.
It was great. In a nice area of Calais with bars and restaurants all around if you don't want to eat in the hotel .
Secure parking is in one of many garages or in a compound that has roller shutters to keep your car safe. I would recommend you reserve this at the time of booking .
Fun to look out the window and watch the ferries come and go along with the morning fishing boats that are just across the road.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 3Much3 Pleasant one night stay en route to mainland Europe
We were met by a warm welcome and received a nice gift upon check-in. Room was was a nice size although just a little "musty" smell when we entered.
All services were good and enjoyed the bar in the evening and the breakfast the following morning. Easy free parking and close proximity to Calais seaside and the major motorways.
We will return when next we pass through the Eurotunnel

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by crtcguy Great place to relax
Stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the hotel and its room very much. The room was on the 4th floor looking West over the harbour and gave us great enjoyment watching the activities on the water. Did not eat breakfast in the hotel as we knew a great restuarant in town which was better value. Tried dinner in the restuarant on the first night and was disappointed. Service was great, however the meal was below average but at a premium price. Staff on the front desk were very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. Free off-street parking is a better deal than the hotel parking lot.
