    It really depends what you are looking for. I have a high rating because the staff are very helpful, courteous, polite, friendly and make you feel welcome. The only downside was the bathroom. The room was large as we had a family room with a...More

    Being a five minute drive from the ferry's, this place should be a little gold mine and from the outside it looks like a traditional pub, inside it's far from it. The restaurant is Indian cusine and is well decorated. We didn't eat there if...More

    Questions & AnswersAsk a question
    Hi I've booked this place for our a one night stay in July so as we can get a early ferry to Calais but after booking it I noticed on the bottom of my booking sheet it says Hotel policies Guest parking * No Parking Available. I'm kind of confused here is there or isn't there any parking. Plus it's motorbikes we are riding so if there is parking; is it pretty secure.
