I stayed here whilst spending a couple of days following Le Tour. Perfect base for exploring the surrounding area and a reasonable walk into town. Handy location for the ports but far enough away to be in "real" France. Saint Omer is a lovely little town with nice shops, bars and restaurants. I didn't have breakfast, preferring to walk into...

We stayed for one night en route back to the UK. The hotel was originally part of the mainline station and very pleasantly situated in the town. The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast was plentiful except for the lack of ham and pain au chocolat! Service was friendly and some of our friends enjoyed the dinner whilst we... More

A triple room for 55€ cant complain! Yes the room had a funny smell coming from the toilet but we managed it by keeping the window open and the fan on. It's not a big walk into the centre it's actually a nice walk of about twenty minutes. We went for an evening drink up at one of the bars... More

Stayed one night in this hotel in May 2014 after driving all day from Germany, so we could recharge our batteries for ferry home from Calais next morning. Calais is about 45 minute drive, set your sat nav to avoid the tolls, why pay them when the road you travel on runs alongside A26 motorway for most of it. Nice... More

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....
