Stayed here for one night in September. The reception is small but very stylish with great flooring. The restaurant looked very nice but I can not comment any further on this as we didnt eat here. However anything above the ground floor looked in need of a make over. the carpet on the stairs was all torn and very dirty.... More

Found the hotel very easily parking obvious because of all the fencing in the front, French equivalent of 'network rail' doing improvements to the car park! Hotel adequate, the room was functional and looked a bit tired, restaurant open plan, food bit oily but ok, staff pleasant. Overall for one night it will do.

I've stayed in Saint-Omer a few times but did not know about the marshes. The hotel is situated by the station, it's the Buffet de la Gare originally. It's been modernised and is smart and clean. The restaurant has a god reputation in the town and was very pleasant. All the hotel staff were pleasant and friendly. The bedroom was... More

As with another reviewer we were intially a little worried as there were roadworks all around but as soon as we entered we were reassured. The hotel is clean and comfortable and provides a good nights sleep at a good price.

We picked this hotel for a 1 night stop over due to its proximity to the ferry on a return journey from Switzerland. As we approach the hotel there were roadworks and at first it was not clear how we actually got to the hotel car park due to security fencing being around the outside perimeter, and cones and barriers....

Rooms are fine, we were on the second floor which I would think would be rather hot in the summer, our shower room was rather small, but the room was nice & clean, small amount of parking on site but the property is right on the station parking so no problem there, apart from the noise from the traffic.

Hotel has a Good location, easy to find, ample on-site parking, good reasonably priced brasserie restaurant, friendly staff. Free coffee & water available on reception. Rooms on the front, overlooking the station can be noisy due to bus drop-off. Public areas in hotel a little grubby and in need of redecoration. Stairs to the upper floors are steep so difficult...

We stopped a night here in April. Our room overlooked the cobbled square leading to the very grand station building (it looks as though they will be renovating this one day as presently it is cordoned off). The room was clean with a huge and comfortable bed. A large flat screen TV was mounted on the wall and free WiFi... More

We stayed here for 1 night in 3rd week in February - our stay was really a break for stocking up on wine etc at Cite D'Europe - we used P&O's offer of a return trip (invloving a night stay) for £17 ferry price.
