Recommended a local restaurant for our evening meal that was super. Fresh continental breakfast with plenty to eat. Gated car park to rear at extra cost &... More

We stayed here after a long drive from the Alps before heading back to the UK. We were met at the door by Isabelle who very quickly made us feel very welcome. Isabelle has made a wonderful job restoring the victorian building, restoring original features with a modern twist. We had 2 rooms at the front of the hotel, they... More

A charming and very chic stop-over in Calais the night before returning to the UK. We were greeted by our host, Isabelle, who showed us to our lovely room and explained that the house originally belonged to a lace merchant. The room had 'little extras' including toiletries, and was very comfortable. The house is very chic, with high ceilings and... More

A very well presented guest house with a warm welcome from our host, Isabelle. The building has a lovely character and the decor compliments it's style. The recommendation for a meal was excellent and our little girl was made to feel very welcome also. Mind put at ease with secure car parking at the rear. A fantastic end to our... More

We stayed at this great little hotel on our way back to UK from the South of France to Edinburgh. It is beautifully decorated with original corniced high ceilings and lovely French double doors. The shower room was state of the art with complimentary toiletries. Isabelle was wonderful and made us feel warm and cared for. Our little dog travelled... More

Lovely small hotel. The owner was very friendly and helpful with advice about where to but wine and chocolates from. There is free parking on the road outside the hotel which is free after 6pm until 9 am the next day. Payment is then 2 euros for 2 hours but I think you have to move every 2 hours but... More

We stayed for one night in our way to the UK. The place is lovely, very easy to find and about 10 minutes to the Eurotunnel. Rooms were very well decorated with modern appliances and an elegant feel. Very quiet and confortable. The host Isabelle was very nice and helpful. An excellent option in Calais, I highly recommend.

A most interesting old building, nicely revamped and the room comfortable. Decor very carefully thought out and it was excellent value for money. Added bonus was that the dog was made welcome as well. Isabelle runs this hotel and was most attentive to our needs, parking was not an issue and is a perfect place to stay for an early... More

Not at all what I was initially expecting this lovely Hotel is centrally located and has a lovely atmosphere. The building is traditionally presented and the rooms are traditional with very nice ensuite added for convenience. I stayed on two separate occasions and was very comfortable both times. The beds were heavenly. Isabelle made me feel very welcome. If you... More
