Stayed overnight prior to an early Eurotunnel crossing and this was perfect for us. The room was a reasonable size although there was limited hanging space, we managed with no issues. The bed and sofa bed were comfortable and breakfast the following morning was simple yet filling.....it was a little shame that there was no bacon but not the end... More

Easy to locate (plenty of parking space), there's a welcoming smile and easy check-in at reception - I was in my third-floor room within just three minutes of arrival. Pleasant interior, the room is plenty spacious for either an overnight stay or even a short break – although hanging space for clothes was limited (I’m assuming that my room is... More

Although the night we went was the night before getting the Channel Train to France for the Belgian Grand Prix and the hotel was fully booked, we had quick book in, lovely food & drink, spot-on alarm call and hot breakfast. It took us 5 minutes to drive to the terminal and 40 minutes to board the train ! The... More

Easy to find, big car park, 5 minutes drive to the Town Centre and more importantly, 5 minutes from Le Shuttle, this is a perfect place to stay if you don't want to rush to meet your appointed time slot. There is a small restaurant & bar, which serves basic food & breakfast is available too. The only thing wrong... More

Chose this hotel for an overnight stay as it was close to the EuroTunnel Terminal and allowed dogs, Staff were very welcoming, check in was quick, the room was basic, but clean with more than enough room for ourselves and our dog. Bathroom towels were a good size, a pleasant surprise. The outside terrace was on the small side, so... More

You know what you're getting at this type of hotel but this offers more. A hot breakfast is included in the price and they don't mind if you use their restaurant to eat your takeaway in. The place is very well managed and was immaculate, very clean. No hesitation in recommending this hotel, especially if like us you're heading for... More

We booked an early morning crossing to Calais to drive to south France , and thought its best to have a restful night sleep rather than leave London very early in the morning . It was the best decision , the hotel was basic but clean and comfortable . We arrived late evening , met by a very pleasant young... More

After a seven hour drive from the north of England we checked in early, at that point not fussed about the £15 early check in charge, we couldn't wait to use the loo and with having three children, were eager to wash and feel refreshed asap. After check in we made our way to the room (15) where we struggled... More

A great hotel - mainly due to the wonderful reception staff. We arrived very late after a horrendous journey from the North of England - the reception staff were so kind and friendly. Room was very clean and set up for us. Breakfast was good. Excellent value for the money paid, would definitely use this hotel again.
