Decent value breakfast and good customer services

Popular central location with good road links

Many reviewers felt this hotel's location was highly convenient for visiting the historic centre of Saint-Omer, which was a short stroll away. There were also lots of dining options nearby as well as a retail park. Ferry passengers often said the location was convenient for a stopover as it was within easy driving distance of Calais and other regional ports. Motorists were also within easy driving distance of the A26 and area attractions. Moreover, there was ample free on-site parking plus petrol stations nearby.

Simple but clean and affordable rooms

The simple but smartly-designed, clean and comfortable rooms appealed to many guests, who often said they were suitable for a short stay. There was praise for the generously-sized and powerful showers. Budget-conscious visitors frequently felt the rooms were fair value for money as they were usually reasonably-priced.

Negative Reviews

Free Wi-Fi divided opinion

Although guests welcomed the availability of free Wi-Fi, some felt the network speeds were underwhelming at times.

Too noisy for some

Some rooms were reportedly exposed to traffic noise at times. Light sleepers also reported being able to occasionally hear sounds from neighbouring rooms and corridors through thin walls.

Occasional criticism of some rooms

Several reviewers felt the rooms were small, especially when accommodating the maximum number of people. Others disliked layout of the en suite facilities, saying they resembled cubicles or closets. The way the sink was located in the bedroom also disappointed some guests. Critics claimed they sometimes encountered bathrooms and floors that could have been more thoroughly cleaned.
