“Excellent little hotel in Calais”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Just got back from a weekend in Nord pas de Calais and stayed once again at the Hotel Meurice. As usual a great room, comfy bed, friendly service, good breakfast, great location.
Don't be put off by the outside look of the hotel, inside it's all faded elegance, which I think is the style they were going for. The Restaurant attached to the hotel is 'La Diligence' which is being renovated but a new Chef starts beginning of July, could be worth a try.

Room Tip: The Hotel offers British guests option to pay in Sterling (GBP). Well worth doing, you often get an...

Ideal location near centre of town - good for restaurants and bars. Had a nice room and really comfortable bed. Receptionist friendly and helpful on arrival but after that...what happened to the importance of customer service? This place has lost its way. Breakfast in a room far too small for the number of people made worse by sour unfriendly service. This followed by a check out that so lacked any sense of the value of customer relations that they might just as well not have bothered. Sorry but poor service does have an impact

Traveled France for over 20 years always by passed Calais, DONT,
PLEASE stay at this hotel you wont be let down, right in the middle of Calais, easy to find and what a gem, our room wasn't massive but for an overnight stop what do you need, spotless clean, lashings of hot water, comfy beds, TV which came in handy for hubby's footie. Smashing nights sleep and a breakfast second to none, with plump dried fruits, nuts cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, cooked breakfast, hams cheeses, pastry's, fresh squeezed juice. The list could go on. The staff are fab, and the bar is very comfy, and very reasonable. I will stay again as a short walk to loads of places to find a good meal, Calais is really lovely so take a look
Extra bonus water machines on corridor

We were recommended to this hotel as our first choice was full - and we were pleased it was.
We arrived to request a room and Natalie was the receptionist. You could not wish for a more helpful person and she had only been there a few weeks. They welcomed our dog who was travelling with us from the U.K. Our room was large and very clean. Bed very comfortable. If I had one minus it would be the hairdryer in the bathroom. It was one of the first old style hairdryers in hotel bathrooms and was very slow and very ancient. Apart from that everything excellent. It is a very old hotel and you did expect Poirot to come walking down the stairs. If they had told me there was a ghost in the hotel, I would definitely have believed them!! It is a very short walk to bars and restaurants although their bar at the end of the evening, with Natalie serving the drinks as well, was very welcome with some good wines and lagers. Would definitely stay there again when we are in Calais next. The rate was very good and although breakfast is included, we did not have it so cannot comment on food.

Room Tip: Pay a bit extra for the better rooms which are larger

We stayed here fo one night only, but it was most enjoyable. The hotel is in our opinion ideally located for exploring Calais, approx 15 mins walk from the Port, and less than 10 mins from the train station. The staff do their job very well and nothing is too much trouble.

The breakfast, in the breakfast room is brilliant, plenty of options, freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee on demand, choices of breads, cheeses and cooked meats, there is also bacon, sausages, scrambled egg and tomatoes, fresh fruit salad and cereals.

Very quiet location, a beautiful park to walk through 2 mins from the hotel door.

A thorough and unhurried relaxing atmosphere.

We shall be back.

Not a very impressive hotel from outside, but very clean and comfortable and holds a wealth of interesting furniture, paintings etc. Staff are welcoming and polite. Breakfast buffet, including hot food, was great and we were not rushed in any way. No restaurant in the hotel, but this did not make a difference to our stay as it is so centrally situated and we had the choice of numerous restaurants nearby. A comfortable bar area in the hotel made it a good place for a 'nightcap'.

No problem parking either in this locality. Would certainly visit again.

I chose this hotel because of the picture of the amazing staircase, it didn't let me down. It is very old fashioned but that added to the stay and the staff were all very friendly even the resident dog made am appearance. The room was very spacious and the shower was hot and powerful. Beds were very comfy. The hotel is situated very close to the centre which is full of lovely cafe and bar!
