Hotel looked nice and restaurant was great. Not a campsite. 27/08/2017

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The restaurant was really nice, served great food and the two ladies that ran it were very nice.
    Shower was nice and new but if you wanted a shower longer than 5 minutes the whole bathroom would flood as the drain was blocked.
    Close to Calais and a nice little town down the road.

    Disliked: 

    This is not a campsite! This is a car park at the back of a hotel with small, very hard grass spaces. The washing up facilities were disgusting and next to the urinals outside. No plugs and dirty old sinks. We were only shown where 1 toilet/shower was, we had to find the other facilities ourselves and they were old and totally unclean.
    Campers left to their own devices. Clearly not interested in them at all as they directed people from the hotel to the site for their dogs to urinate etc.

    Excellent staff. Very helpful. Tried the onsite restaurant which was excellent. Very quiet, secluded pitches.

    Disliked: 

    Motor home facilities could be better. No where available to dump grey water.
    Signposting to site could be better. Campsite sign did not show motorhomes just tents and caravans. Wifi free but only available in hotel. Couldn't find reception didn't realise it was hotel reception.

    Got to choose our pitch, with electric and it was fairly cheap. We used this site as an over night stay on the way down south. Easy to get to from Calais. About a 25 minute drive.

    Disliked: 

    The shower was blocked and the toilets really didn't smell great.
