Clean room with modern facilities and was excellent. Food quite basic, probably better for small eaters and vegetarians, but we would stay again. Location ideal for overnight stay for tunnel of ferries.

We have stayed here on many occasions now on the way to and from the tunnel. It suits us beautifully as there is a family room. The location is pretty, rural but within reach of a few good resturants. We always feel very welcome. It is very relaxing and the children feel welcome. The breakfasts are lovely. The rooms are...

Stayed here twice now on our way back from the Alps and have to say it's a great gem. Very cosy, charming place and tranquil place to stay.

Excellent host with a wonderful attitude towards his clientele. Comfortable modern rooms,located only 15 minutes outside of Calais providing easy access to the Tunnel for UK travellers. Secure and safe environment compared to some locations nearer the tunnel - an important consideration with the unfortunate events surrounding Calais itself. A continental breakfast is included wth home made and local organic... More

What a truly magical place not affected by the tragedy that is unfolding at Calais. Alex Factory is set in a magical countryside location well away from any issues. The French Police have it all under control and what is reported in the press won't affect your stay at this amazing retreat.

Excellent breakfasts with fresh fruit, home made (gluten free) bread, and eggs whichever way you prefer. Very friendly and Alex can advise you of all the things to do or other places to eat in the local area. Zorro, the resident cat, is quite a character and will make his presence known to you.

We spent just one night at Alex Factory on the way South, but it would also be a great place for a short break eg for cycling, as the surrounding countryside is lovely and it is just a few miles to the beaches. We rented the family room, and it was very spacious, especially the bathroom. The main bed is... More
