“Very nice budget hotel in Calais”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We stayed here overnight en route driving to the south of France. We chose it as a cheap option for a family room, breakfast is included and it is easy to find from the ferry. It was all of these things, but also surprisingly quite stylish and friendly. I loved the lobby/bar area where you can help yourself to free coffee & croissants day or night and read the paper, or drink a refreshing beer whilst watching the kids play in the kids technology corner.

The staff were lovely when we arrived and happily spoke back to us in French because we were making an effort. They also helped us out arranging a cot at the last minute, which had been lost from the original online booking.

The only downside of this hotel was that our room had a very high sky light. With it being June, and light until nearly 10pm, the kids didn't get to sleep until late! This may not be true of other rooms in the hotel but seemed an oversight in a family room.... It could do with a blind or shutter or something!

Overall it is a budget hotel and is never going to be luxurious, but it was the best place of its sort we have stayed in. I would definitely recommend it for a stopover.

Great location, good service , welcome bottled water, clean rooms and communal areas. The downside was it is on a busy high street which is not a problem when the windows are shut but as the rooms have no air conditioning we could not leave the windows open, finally although not an issue for everyone the rooms are small. I would still stay here again and would recommend this hotel.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Ibis Styles in Calais and it will not be the last! The rooms are bright and well appointed with the bathrooms differing dependent on the room but supply good number of towels and easy to use facilities. Excellent self service breakfast and you can even juice your own fresh orange. Staff helpful and smiley and the hotel is at the heart of the bar/restaurant area, a short walk to the beach and only 5 mins drive from the ferries. We love it and delighted to learn more have opened throughout France. Well done Ibis Styles! Thank you. x

Enjoyed a night here after a long stint camping and a long drive. On a busy one way street where parking is metered, or directly outside you can stop for 15mins, just enough time to check in and get our gear inside. The lack of car parking is a pain but the staff were helpful in suggesting nearby side-roads to park for free. I'd stay there again - especially now I've got to know the area.

Stayed for one night with my husband, 2 children and another family. It took us less than 10 minutes to find it from Calais port and was on a street of quirky little shops and boulangeries. There was a market at the end of the road which finished at 1pm and a small play park/gardens alongside it where we enjoyed a picnic.The walk to the beach was about 10 minutes long and what a beautiful beach it was! Miles of lovely white sand, many (very cheap) ice cream vans along the promenade and a huge free car park.
Breakfast was continental but very varied with a fresh orange juicer which the kids loved. Free pool table and a kids corner with Vtech laptops which was a bonus. There were welcome pastries in the foyer also when we arrived. Staff were friendly and rooms were a decent size.The only downside was that once we had checked in and been given our room keys we entered the room to find a dirty unmade bed and very obviously 'used' toilet. I rang down to reception who explained that the maids were still doing the rounds and we could leave our bags in there should we wish to go off for a bit which we did. We returned a short while later to find the room all clean and made up. Our friends room had some nice little touches such as small packs of pink Haribo sweets and minature shower gels for the children, we didn't get these but maybe we rushed the cleaners?! Also no tea and coffee facilities in the room but there was some available in the foyer free of charge.
All in all we were impressed with the hotel and will return.

We stayed in January 2013 and again in May 2013. It was perfect in January and remains the same. We were two adults and two children - the room was large with an additional small alcove accommodating a single bed - ideal for privacy. Friendly welcome from Isabelle, clean rooms, obliging staff (even helped us with our luggage), good breakfast, 24-hour complimentary hot drinks - absolutely no complaints - will definitely stay again. It's ideally located and within walking distance of both La Maison du Fromage et des Vin where I bought the most mouthwatering brie I've ever tasted - Brie du Melun and, of course, the exquisite Channel Restaurant. Free WiFi is an added bonus.

Room Tip: light sleepers should request a room at the rear of the hotel.
