Getting there. It's on the edge of an industrial / housing estate. A little tricky to find but we got there. I usually stay in 4* hotels so the area was a bit of a shock however this estate is very typical of how many french people live in towns and cities. Yeah, I guess with the all the grafitti it looked a bit like a council estate !
On arrival reception was shut - DON'T PANIC ! There is a very easy to use screen next to the reception door and we retrieved our booking and room key (swipe card) in a matter of minutes with very clear multi language (including English) instructions.
The room - well, it is small, more like a cabin than a room. HOWEVER if you have ever stayed on the ferry overnight this costs HALF as much and is clean enough. Yeah the bathroom is tiny and there is some traces of mould but again NOT that different to a ships cabin.
The bed is a metal bunk bad. But that kinda added to the fun factor. We had an 8 yr old on that and a 10 yr old down the side of our bed on a blow up ready bed. Cramped but we were only there 2 nights. The beds were VERY comfortable actually. Clean sheets. The maid made the bed and tidied the room so absolutely no complaints there.
Don't bother with the breakfast it really is just coffee, toast and croissant and there is a Carrefore very nearby for all that.
One alternative to cost effective travel was a Gites or a B&B somewhere, or maybe a small hotel in a village somewhere. A bit hit and miss. We have done that once just outside Dieppe. Got there at 6pm and the Hotel (a Les Routriers) was shut, no answer on the telephone and no instructions on the door.
Our conclusion was that if you pay £60 - £90 for an overnight cabin then that is a rip off, £32 for a family of 4 is an absolute BARGAIN. Plus, compared to one alternative camping - it's warmer and less fussy.
