Like all other Campanile Hotels that I have stayed in France, this was a cell-like room with rough walls and with few facilities. The bedside tables are 20cm wide and it is not possible to walk normally between the bed and the adjacent wall on one side of the double bed. Booked for two adults only one bath towel was provided (a second was freely given on request). For some reason, allegedly due to Covid, the kettle and "hospitality tray" had been removed. The bed was comfortable but only two very small pillows were provided. The restaurant was closed due to Covid. It really was how one imagines a prison cell in size but with a key! It was more expensive than a UK Premier Inn but does not compare. If all you want to do is sleep and go then it's OK but I don't want to imagine what the adjacent Première Classe Hotel, which is even more basic, provides in terms of room size and facilities. The restaurants at Campanile - open in normal times - sell themselves as gourmet but are just not. The food they do provide is almost as basic as one can imagine. It's quite sad, really, because fifteen years ago the food was OK - the rooms are described as "New Generation" but haven't really changed except the bedside lights are a little better. On a positive note, the free WiFi is quite good. The hotel is on an Industrial estate.
Great value for the price. Ideal overnight before a ferry or tunnel to UK. Calais is an hour away.
Secure car parking
Good food in the restaurant. Starters and desserts are too notch!
Very good breakfast.
Warm and friendly staff.
Dogs accepted, in rooms and in the restaurant.
Rooms are basic, but comfortable. Good sized bed. Great shower. Tea and coffee facilities in room and a TV and a bottle of water.
No air con but on the hottest day in France for years the room was really quite bearable.
Poor quality mattress covers were slightly annoying.
But as previously mentioned a great kitchen provided very appetising buffets.
Two rooms booked no,s 007 & 008. Rooms are tired and need redecorating. Inner door in 007 did not close it had to be wedged shut. The television in room 008 turned on but then the remote failed to communicate with the set meaning that channels could not be changed, volume altered (thankfully it turned on with no sound) or turned off! Reception's solution was handing us another remote control but that had no effect either. The plugs were inaccessible behind panelling and we were forced to hang a towel over the screen to block out the light at bedtime.
At 214 Euro for the rooms this was a vastly overpriced nights accommodation.
We made an overnight stop here, We were immediately struck by the friendly and positive attitude of the staff, at reception, in the restaurant, and indeed the team next morning. The room was clean and freshly decorated. In the height of summer the absence of aircon could be a drawback but no problem in May. A hand towel as well as the two skimpy bath towels would have been welcome..
The restaurant was typical Campanile with some of the buffet being rather better than average. One oddity was the absence of the printed menus telling you what the various combinations of starter buffet, main course, dessert buffet were going to cost, ditto the drink prices but all worked out well in the end.
The room was surprisingly quiet given the proximity to industrial units and the dual carriageway not far away.
We would cheerfully stay there again.
