Reviewed August 21, 2013

We have stayed at many Formule 1 hotels and find them all worth the money. Ideal for an overnight stay. On the down side the rooms could do with more towels we had to share one hand towel for two people. We will definitely be using them in the future.

Room Tip: Take towels with you for showering.

could not be more convenient for channel tunnel. all F! the sam and if you complain about the shared facilities then you should read the info on Accor website as it fully explains at the outset. aleays use this hotel and never had any issues. all explained on website prior to booking. thank F1 for the usual overnight(s) on way to and from Spain. Note if you heading south make sure you book an F! with aircon as they tend to be like greenhouses.

This hotel was my second stay at this chain and again I had no issues. It's located next to some other budget hotels, just off the motorway, very close to Cite Europe shoppign complex, the Channel Tunnel Terminal and only about 20 minutes from Calais Ferry Terminal. This hotel has no restaurant or bar, but the town of Calais is only 10 minutes or so by car and there is a large American style restaurant about 5 minutes drive/10 minutes walk away, as well as a Chinese restaurant and a McDonalds. The rooms are basic, but comfortable. Shared toilets and showers are fine. The were in better condition than the other F1 I stayed at. This hotel was busy with people at all times due to it's vicinity to both the ferry and Chunnel, so there was some noise in the corridor late at night, but nothing too disruptive. Again, the most you'll pay is €41 per room which can be bought down to about €35 per room if you book online. It's basic, yes, but if all you want is a place to stay before an early train or ship, or a place to stay after a late arrival then book a room here!

Room Tip: There is no difference between any of the rooms.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a couple of night's, we didn't get much rest due to the noise late into the night and early hours. We tried to ask the offenders to stop running around the corridors but received verbal abuse. There was no-one to help as the hotel is not manned at night. I wouldn't recommend this hotel if you want sleep! This hotel also advertises English tv channels there definitely aren't any as the sign suggests below!

We arrived after a late night ferry from England for a night, to our surprise the 'hotel' was based in an industrial estate. The rooms were very basic and the reception and checking in was very basic and quite unreliable. After, we went up to the rooms and not realising that there was a community toilet and showers that were yellow and had hair everywhere. The sleep was okay however the walls were pretty much paper and we could hear anything from next door to the other side of the corridor. Overall, if you want a quick stop by then this may be for you but for us we felt that paying 39 euros we should get something else.

Room Tip: Dont go, theres a b&b near the mcdonalds around ten minutes away, much better option.

Stayed here 1 night as part of a booze cruise. Unusually 'personnel free' low maintenance arrangement .... check in a was bit complicated & access into the hotel was via a self serve interface at the front entrance using the bank/credit card you paid the accommodation with.... we got stuck and had to summon the caretaker from her apartment.
Very basic facilities, croissants, coffee, yoghurt etc. for breakfast but a quiet nights sleep. Would recommend for a 'very' short break.

Room Tip: Think all rooms are exactly the same.....

Super price. Typical F1 - a room with double and single bunk beds. Very clean facilities. Secure car park.
Great place to start/finish your European travels. Far cheaper than equivalent in UK (€31 Dec 12 - €36 Jan 13). 10 min from Eurotunnel. Felt safe and secure. Room was sufficient for 2 + 2 children. Cheap and cheerful. Got breakfast from a nearby supermarket. Will use this place every time we hit mainland Europe.
