Good for overnight stopPosted Jul 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
Clean, comfortable hotel with better than expected shower. Window faced lighthouse but it didn't cause us any problems. Quiet neighbourhood but eating places nearby and short walk to beach. Shower and loo separated from bedroom by concertina plastic folding door that doesn't reach right to the floor. Hosts welcoming and pleasant. Cannot comment on breakfast in room as we went out to eat. Appears to be only French programmes available on TV. All in all a satisfactory stay if overnighting.

Courteous & friendly reception by gentleman & his lady. No breakfast room but prompt delivery of tray to room at requested time. Both speak excellent English. The lady advised me of easiest route to take to ferry port next morning which saved me the long way around.

Very good for Ferry crosingsPosted Aug 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
It was adquate, I think its situation is ideal being so close to the ferries. It is also convenient for town and shops/restaurants (walking distance) but the room layout left a lot to be desired, it was clean but the door to the toilet was no more than a plastic concertina sliding cover and the same applied to the seperate bathroom which didn;t leave much space for a bedroom or anywhere for clothes, even for an overnight stay. Breakfast although seved in your room as there was no dining area was very good.

Hotel Victoria in Calais, FrancePosted Sep 10, 2011 on Hotels.com
This hotel has clean and quiet rooms, with friendly owners and is close to the ferry terminal. It is also a short stroll to the main street for cafes and restaurants, and is ideal for a day or two stay.

Victoria, CalaisPosted May 13, 2011 on Hotels.com
I'm guessing most people who are spending the night in Calais are doing so as a stop off to go somewhere else. That was my case anyway, I wanted a bed after getting off the ferry from Dover and the hotel is ideally situated 3minutes (on the satnav) from off the ferry, and a very short walk to the town. Unlike the other reviewer on here we were given a groundfloor room away from the lighthouse so I can't speak about that. The hotel is best described as a Blackpool B&B in Calais. Budget and no frills, it does everything it needs to do. The bed was comfortable, breakfast was nice, and the lady who brought it was very friendly and cheerful. The main guy had patience to persevere with my French although whether this was for his amusement, out of respect or because he couldn't speak English, I don't know! In short, it's ok, nothing special but good for one night if you're on your way to somewhere else, and any money you can save before you get to your destination is extra spending money!!

Not great, cheaper and better available.Posted Mar 25, 2011 on Hotels.com
I'll summarise: Good points- Comfy bed, plenty of bedding, conveniently located close to centre of town, breakfast is brought to your room. Nice solid wooden staircase. Bad points- There is a LIGHTHOUSE about 200 yards outside of the sodding hotel. Blackout blinds installed on just one of the two windows(?). Windows are single glazed, you can hear squirrels running past, so when lorries and buses go past, or the street0sweeper, you hear every footstep. I woke at 7.15am and couldn't go back to sleep, which is unlike me. There is no parking at this hotel, you have to park on the street - so ignore the "Parking available" bit on this website, it's wrong. Finally, I read other reviews where people have said the staff here are not friendly. There was one woman who brought me my breakfast, she was joyously happy and friendly. And then there was the guy who I think owns the hotel. Unfortunately, he comes across like he really doesn't care if you stay at his hotel or not. He didn't smile once, or ask if my stay was good, or generally make any small talk at all. He just didn't seem interested in running his hotel :-/ Saying that, he was polite at all times, and that goes a long way in my book. All he really needs to do is smile a bit, in my very humble opinion. Would I stay here again, no, I would book at the 1-star Bonsai just across the bridge; cheaper, quieter, no lighthouse, and happy staff.
