Ibis Budget Boulogne Sur Mer Outreau
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Outreau
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Prebooked and arrived late in evening, otherwise we would have abandoned the booking and moved on. In a rundown industrial area. Dirty on the outside and not much better inside. Desperately in need of an update whether it is an Etape or an Ibis Budget hotel.
Shower was very dirty with mould on tiles. Whole shower unit looked "dirty".
Perhaps Accor should disassociate themselves from this hotel!

We arrived at this Etap in Boulogne on a Monday evening. It is easy to find from the motorway as it is right next door to the huge LeClerc Hypermarket. The Etap was basic and the decor a little tired but it cost us £32.64 which was good value considering the F1 at Vernon with no personal toilet & shower was a mere 2p less! The area is very busy and industrial and the only place we found to eat in walking distance (there is a McD's opposite but not our thing...) was the ‘Flunch” restaurant in the LeClerc which was open ‘til 9pm and had a good help yourself buffet with freshly griddled meat, steaks etc. We had a fresh fruit starter (one), 4 lamb cutlets each plus veg and 2 small bottles of wine for 22.40 euros which proved good value. The proprietors of the Etap were friendly and the breakfast was fresh and plentiful. The only thing that let it down was the odour that came from the bathroom, the drains obviously need an overhaul. Good for a quick stop en route....

I've used this hotel for it's price and location for 8 years but it has definitely reached the end of it's shelf life. It is becoming a bit grubby to say the least. The toilet in room 230 smelled strongly of bleach on arrival. As it smelled considerably different in the morning I got the impression that there was a problem with the plumbing and bleach was they're solution. In addition there is a noisy air con unit on the flat roof outside the window of this room. Not conducive to a good nights sleep. I understand this hotel is soon to be refurbished and re-branded as an Ibis Budget. I hope this happens soon because despite the foregoing I want to continue using this hotel.

stayed at this hotel on our way to south west France. The hotel is just off the motorway in an industrial / retail park area and quite far outside Boulogne. The rooms are small and have a double bed and a single bunk above. We had to book 2 rooms because they only allowed 3 people per room despite us being a family of 4 (girls 4 and 7 yrs old). We could have squeezed into 1 room. The rooms are basically furnished but clean and functional and our 2 rooms were next door. We had to make the bunk bed up but the double was ready. We went across the road to the MacD's for a snack. All slept well and it was very quiet. The girls enjoyed sleeping on the bunks. Next morning the breakfast was typically French with bread, cheese, cake, brioche, yoghurts, cereal, fruit, tea, coffee. Very nice and plenty of food. The staff were friendly and welcoming and we would definitely stay in an Etap again. My opinion is that they are on a par with Travelodge but with nicer staff

Room Tip: don't stay for more than one night and don't choose this one if you plan to see Boulogne its...
