We usually stay at Calais Etap (now Ibis Budget). But tried the Formule 1 for a change. It was very good. Its true that the noise of doors opening and closing was quite clear, but as it is used mainly by workers on jobs in the area, most observed the french unofficial shut down of 10.00 pm as they have to rise early so we slept well.
The breakfast was the best we have had in a Formule 1. A really well looked after breakfast room. Even a quick toaster for us Brits favourite start to the day. Will definetly go there again, especially with the Auchan Supermarket next door.

Room Tip: There is a short cut to the supermarket at the end of the cul-de-sac.

If you want a bed after a late tunnel crossing or before an early one then for £25 this is a cheap, convenient option. However, due to the thin walls it can be very noisy and the shared toilets/ showers aren't always perfectly clean. We would use it again though.

A positive was that they never charged us for our dog staying with us so that saved another £5!

We had to stay one night in this "hotel" when we were on our way to London. It was a school trip, so what could we expect... Rooms very okay, beds were fine - we stayed in tripple room, but bathrooms (showers!!!!) disgusting! Breakfast also poor. I would not come back.

Worst ever hotel I stayed so far in France.
Had big hopes for this low cost hotel due to its location, in close proximity to the ferry harbour of Calais, like a 15 minutes’ drive or so.
However at 1st we had to zigzag around little roads around the nearby shopping mall to get the F1 hotel.
We paid 39 EUR for a night stay. I could not sleep for more than one or two hours at most.
Unfortunately we had no budget to stay anywhere else, as it was the nearly the end of our three weeks stay in mainland Europe, before we were heading back to our native Ireland, via lovely Snowdonia National Park, Wales, I might ad.

The bedroom had a stinky smell at entry, maybe originated from an uncleaned mattress on the top bunk bed, on top of the tiny double bed, I suppose.
We had some prior knowledge that merely shared bath/shower room were offered, as we only asked for a basic room to crash for the night, we thought oh well we give it a try. But that the shower room and WC were so badly facilitated.
I nearly slipped on the shower room floor.
There was merely just one towel in the bedroom.
There was basic shampoo provided in the shower room. Noticed shower room was filthy and full of hair of prior users.
The light switched off in both toilet and shower room after a few seconds unless, so kept pressing the door handle. No instructions upon entering this room were put on the doors, just what they are for.

The bedroom did have a small sink and TV, and two sockets for charging our mobiles. There was WiFi, but hard to access.
Smelled that people were smoking inside nearby rooms.

We had to check out early in the morning, so not the miss the ferry from Calais to Dover, so could not avail to try out the breakfast (at an extra fee).

Please see the pictures and judge for yourself.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else please, avoid this place, unless you have never else to go, or unless you prepared...

Reading some of the reviews here I can guess that half of you don't often use f1's? I don't know... but what I do know, is that this is impeccably clean compared to the others I've had the displeasure to stay in. The staff are pleasant and the place feels warm.

This hotel is definitely being ran well above the basic standard that F1's require.

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.
