We usually stay in an Ibis, as we just want a bed. However, we had decided to take our time and get a mid morning ferry back to the UK. The hotel is very central, with plenty of parking immediately outside. They also have six secure parking places, so book early if you have stuff in your car as Calais is not the safest place to leave anything in a car overnight, due to the large number of potential illegal immigrants roaming the streets. We had a room on the front on the first floor. A lobby with bathroom and separate toilet off. Bathroom was immaculate and recently refurbished. The bedroom had proper antique furniture, i.e. no formica in sight, a reallyl comfortable bed with pristine cotton bedlinen. Lots of embossed monogrammed towels too. A tea/coffee tray with kettle, which is unusual in France. The television also had British tv channels too and not just BBC World. The reception staff, both in the evening and next morning were charming and spoke good English. They charge for WiFi, but there is a computer in the reception area which is free for guests to use. All in all, a very nice hotel and we would definitely stay there again. Its only a five minute walk to the main streets where there are lots of restaurants. Reception gave us a map. We ate at the De La Mer, a fish restaurant and it was superb.
