Having stayed in Formula 1 hotels before, I knew what to expect.... I thought. The hotel was dirty, smelly and stank of smoke. From outside you can watch everyone standing at their open windows smoking. One toilet was blocked, another had no toilet paper and the third had pee over the seat, surround and floor, as well as fag ash... More

You get what you pay for. This was a very basic smoky smelling room in a shabby motel in an industrial area of Dunkirk. We were not comfortable with the security of our car in the car park given the shifty looking individuals milling around. We would not stop there again. We would spend a bit more money and stay...

Got off the DFDS Seaways ferry in Dunkirk at 9:30 pm and followed SatNav to the hotel. Good parking in a remote location was a relief. It took me a minute or so to work out how to get into the automated check in machine, but once started the process was simple. Just touch the screen and choose the English... More

Having used these hotels on many occasions for overnight stop overs this has to be the worst example I have ever stayed in. It was dirty throughout, the showers were black and toilets also. Our room smelt awful............... It was the first time for my other half and it was embarrassing for me to take her there. I know these... More

When you pay a very tiny amount for a hotel like the HotelF1 chain I don't expect the World, I expect something very small and basic. I'm only after a bed for a couple of hours in-between travels. This fits the bill perfectly. The shower and toilet facilities being down the hall is a bit of a weird concept at... More

We always stay here for our first night in Europe as it doesn't matter what time you arrive. You just insert the card you used to reserve the room in the machine outside, put your PIN in and you're given the number and the code to the doors. We like it as it is easy to find an only 20... More

I stayed here for a night with my family after a late night ferry trip from Dover. We were met by a very helpful gentleman who was doing security / night porter. The room was adequate and very clean, breakfast was fresh and plentifl. We will return on our next Dunkirk trip.

What an excellent hotel - the Duo room is very well sized and very quiet (because it's in the middle of nowhere). I don't mind having to walk down the hallway to have a shower and go to the toilet - they were spotlessly clean. Helpful and friendly staff understood and helped me with my limited ability of French. Already... More

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our recent trip through Dunkerque. What an excellent system. €33 for every room and no keys ( pin number for the doors ) makes everything very easy. The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean. You get a TV, sink and free WIFI. It is basic but it's all we needed and... More
