What our customers say
"Good night sleep before crossing the Eurotunnel"
Best hotel to stay before crossing Eurotunnel. It is our second stay here and we have come back because we liked the hotel: location, clean rooms, nice friendly staff, good cook (even if this time we ate in the room, still good food at dinner), pet friendly hotel, good sound proof, good quality sleep. Small but bery confortable hotel only minutes drive from Eurotunnel.
"Great overnight stay despite pandemic restrictions"
We chose the hotel because of the location adjacnt to the Eurotnnel departure. The staff were very welcoming, helpful and considerate. The room was good, the three course dinner in our room was very tasty and good value as was breakfast.
Felt safe and happy that our vehicle was secure by the presence of dozens of Gendarmes staying in your hotel
"convenient and well priced"
Needed something near to the eurotunnel and this did the job very well. The directions could be a little better but still easy enough to find and the staff on reception were very helpful both prior to arrival in answering questions and also post arrival. clean, simple and well priced
A wonderful night thank you. Always a worry during these exceptional times but your covid measures were thorough whilst still being welcoming. The young man who checked us in was patient and professional during our exchanges. We will use your hotel again
Just one night but good experience, helpful staff, great room, good food, clean and quiet.
"Rabbits at 3am."
A great stay and we will be coming back. Our retrievers especially liked chasing rabbits at 3 am, though I was not impressed. My dog woke me to go out, but as soon as he got outside and saw the rabbits, he forgot all about the toilet!
"Third stay always a good experience"
We stopped on the way back to the UK. We've used this place before. Rooms are clean and breakfast is good. For a reasonable price. Staff were helpful and friendly.
"Amazing ! Love it "
It was my 3rd times staying at this hotel, it’s always nice welcoming . The staff are nice and friendly . Breakfast is nice ! I love how the rooms are clean and value for money is good . I hope it remains this way .
"Very comfortable stay in an immaculately clean room"
We stayed in the family room which was a very good size, very clean with comfortable beds. We had a great nights sleep and enjoyed breakfast in the morning. The only two small issues were that the shower temperature would not remain constant and the thermostat for the hot water in the bath would only allow lukewarm water. We are booked to stay again later this week.
