Great for a stop over on the way to Calais. Not far from the motorway. About an hour and a half away from the Eurotunnel. Great shopping centre over the road with a couple of restaurants and supermarket.
A lot of the reviews of budget hotel/motels are from people expecting the Sheraton or Westin and then getting disappointed. The hotel was exactly what I expected and the price I paid for the room was about right. It is clean and comfortable and is situated on the first roundabout, then second exit from Exit 6 off the A26 Motorway. The staff were helpful and spoke reasonable English on my arrival and explained all the necessary bits and bobs. The room was clean and tidy and cleaned every day and I certainly heard no noise from the Motorway. There is tea and coffee making facilities though my suggestion would be to take your own because the selection is limited. Being english I need a decent cup of tea in the morning and not a lime or raspberry tea infusion. I gave this hotel 5 stars for everything because it pretty much ticks all the boxes for an overnight stay to break up your journey on trips through France.
Having read mixed reviews, I happy to say that I was extremely happy with my stay. Within an hour and 10 minutes of Calais, it's a perfect location for an over nite stay either before or after the long journey down to the south of France. The Vimy war memorial is 12 minutes away which is more than worth a visit. The hotel itself (whilst looking like an 80s motel from outside) surpassed expectations. The staff were efficient and friendly and were welcoming at check in. Larger than standard rooms which are newly refurbished. The quality was very impressive and the bed was one of the comfiest beds I've stayed in. Overall, very pleased with the hotel, a fair price, perfect location (if you're just looking for a midway stop). As some of the reviews have said, there isn't much around the hotel, so if it's attractions or shops you're looking for, this may not be the place for you. For those that have left poor reviews, I'm not sure what more you could want for the money!
