“Good for a quick bed and breakfast kind of thing...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Very nice. Although the staff aren't often there, it doesn't compromise your stay, as it is 'paired' with the hotel next door. The hygiene was excellent. Sleep was good. Aesthetics were good too. Smelled of cigarettes in the hall, but not in the rooms. The bathroom was fairly good, with a powerful shower. WiFi did not work. Next to a very nice restaurant with very good mussels. The sheets were clean and so was the mini-kitchen Had a reasonable range of teas and coffee in your room. The location is great, though it may not seem it at first sight. Although the beach is right next to a working port it is still nice for paddling and walking. I saw two rooms, and the paint on one of the beds was peeling but that didn't matter. All in all, very good; it would be excellent with a few minor changes.

Arrived on late ferry into Calais and definitely need sat nav to find it, and key was next door but the young guy there was really polite and helpful
Good clean basic hotel. Room on first floor was quiet, clean and spacious. Small (queen size) double but really firm comfortable mattress with clean crisp sheets. Bunk beds in room too. Small kitchen area looked well enough equipped but we did not use. TV good choice of programmes, pity wifi did not actually work. Plenty of hot water, clean towels and basic toiletries. Breakfast ok but over priced for what it was.
Staff very helpful

Room Tip: You get what it says on the tin and for what we paid we could not expect better or more. Great for...

Great value as a budget stopover hotel, we stayed twice for two nights over a two week period, having booked through booking.com. The room was clean, and the corridors tidy and smart. The bunk beds in both rooms we stayed in were tired with stripped off black paint, and the bathrooms weren't exactly newly renovated, but I can't complain too much as what do you expect for the price you pay? One of the nights we were there was very windy and there was a cable or something banging against the wall outside which was a little annoying, but the weather was quite extreme to be fair.

Good continental breakfast selection, and the children's breakfast is free for under 12s - great value again.

Our main gripe was that on neither occasion did the advertised wifi actually work. We were not alone with this and witnessed other guests approach them with the same issues. Staff just responded - well I'm connected to it, showing their phones. Not helpful, especially when you need a connection for work etc.

That said I would recommend the Hotel Du Golf as a one night stopover. Great value, spacious rooms with kitchenette area which was very handy, and good location for the ferry etc.

We were in a ground floor room so can't really give any comment on the other floors.
The good bits: Clean and good size rooms with good size bathrooms. English German & French TV channels. Free WiFi. Right on The beach. Great restaurant next door. Very cheap.
Not so good bits: The WiFi signal was very weak and unusable. Very noisy from adjoining rooms and the lobby from early hours of the morning and throughout the night.
Overall this is a perfect hotel for a short stopover while waiting for the Eurotunnel train. It's not somewhere I would stay for a holiday, but is 'cheap & cheerful'.
Top tip: The restaurant next door is excellent with great service and great food at a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms very very noisy.

This hotel was fine for what we wanted-somewhere cheap for an overnight stay before catching the ferry. An excellent price and ideal location for the ferry. Our room was a little tired looking, though was well equipped with clean bedding and extra pillows. The beds were comfortable but when we booked we chose the twin bed option but our room had a double bed and a set of bunk beds. I think all the rooms are the same. There was a tray with sachets of tea, coffee and milk provided which we hadnt expected. The room itself smelt a bit musty and friends in another room asked to be moved because their room smelled of stale smoke despite being advertised as non smoking. They were offered another room which was fine.

This was our second stay at this hotel and once again did not disappoint The rooms are now looking a little tired but the facilities provided are very good. A lift would be useful especially when staying on the top floor like we were.

The beds were comfortable and the facility of a kitchenette with fridge, microwave & hot plates are excellent. The free WiFi was excellent & easy to log on.

Room Tip: A room with a view over the Channel is an extra bonus.

I wouldn't stay here for any longer than a night but it was absolutely fine for a quick stop off to break up a journey from Paris to the UK midlands. There was nobody on reception when we landed so the key was left at the hotel next door (guessing they are both owned by same person/company?). The outside doesn't create a fantastic first impression of the place, it looked more like a youth hostel when we arrived in the dark. Room was clean, everything worked as it should and the beds were comfortable. There was a group in there somewhere making a racket but they shut up around 11pm. You can hear everything from the other rooms.

Room Tip: Don't choose this place for any longer than a night or two.
