Me and my girl stopped here on a roadtrip from the UK, we came rather late around 23.30, free parking outside, which is great. The room was ICE-cold when we opened the door because the window had been left open. The breakfast was ok but i can't believe there is no meat, only marmalades and nutella. So i got a... More

You get what you pay for guys. £20 B&B for 2 gets you a machine to check in, a code to get into the hotel and your room, communal loos and showers, and a basic continental breakfast. You won't get any brownie points from the wife, but I guarantee you'll be on the road by 8:30am in the morning.

This is a perfect case of getting what you paid for. We paid £19 per room (two rooms were required as we are a family of 4) and were satisfied with what we got. The rooms are small, the toilet and shower facilities are shared and whist it was busy, the facilities were clean. As a place to stay after... More

Paid £19 for a double room. At this price it's excellent value for money but don't expect any frills. Shared bathrooms, little more than a bed and washbasin in the room etc. Great for somewhere to sleep when just off the ferry but not exactly inspiring.

We responded to an e mail offering special rates and as the e mail came from Accor hotels we assumed that it would be their usual standard and it never occurred to us that there would not be an ensuite bathroom. The booking stated that the room was a few feet from a toilet in fact it was a good... More

We had a brief stay just before we got our ferry. It was ok and I have no complaints really. The room was very clean, adequate towels, clean and comfy bed. It was quiet and we slept well. The showers and toilets were always clean whenever we used them with plentiful hot water. I felt security was ok. The problem... More

This is the fourth time I've stayed here, and this is the first time I have had problems. It seems the management has changed resulting the place going downhill - fast. Was originally booked into a room that smelt of smoke really bad, got changed and the room smelt like bleach, so sign of a clean room. My mother's room... More

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
