    « New Year Break »

    I was looking for a short break over New Year and struggled to find a suitable flight from Newcastle at this time of the year. I drove down to Dover and hopped on the ferry. The hotel is situated about an hour from Calais and is easy to find just off the motorway. My room was in the main building and was spotless - flat screen TV, mini bar, shower -all excellent. My only grumble is that the pillows are constructed out of bungee cords - your head rebounds off the pillows and I struggled to sleep. I can cope with hollow fibre and would prefer feather pillows but the pillows provided are a pain in my opinion. The breakfast was continental style, breads, jams, fruit juice, cereals, fresh fruit and a small selection of cooked meats & cheeses. It was adequate and in my opinion slightly overpriced at 14 euros.

    « Excellent hotel and restaurant »

    Never stayed here before but thoroughly recommend. The hotel is situated in grounds which include the hotel la chartreuse, restaurants le vasco, la distillerie, le Robert II. We ate in la distillerie which was perfect. I had mixed fish with a sauce. The fish was beautifully cooked and fresh tasting. My husband had Escalope which was chicken with ham and cheese with a sauce served with fries. Excellent. The service was top class. Very popular on Friday so luckily we reserved. The room was of a high standard with every amenity including coffee making facilities, hair dryer, mini bar, safe, plenty of wardrobe/cupboard space, soap, flannels, t.v, free wifi, comfy pillows and bed, and a desk. Sizeable room. Breakfast room if required. Would recommend this hotel about 50 miles from Calais.

    « on our way back to the UK »

    Last stop on our long drive home from Italy we stayed here on a November Sunday night. We were upgraded to a premium room and breakfast was included in the rate so we were happy with the value. Our room was large and beautiful, it would have benefited from somewhere to sit since there didn't seem to be any hotel lounge and the bar/restaurant opposite didn't open until 7pm. Otherwise it was a delight, good bathroom with separate toilet, beverages tray and minibar, good quality linen on a comfy bed. Breakfast next morning was fine, no complaints. I imagine the hotel experience is very different in summer, it was hardly occupied when we stayed but we were very happy with what we got and didn't mind the quiet at all. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    « Great Place to start a holiday »

    Location is key they say and this hotel being just over an hour into France from the tunnel is a great place to start. The car park is large the rooms are clean and well appointed. The setting is also very nice being in the grounds of the much more expensive hotel next door. With a choice of 3 places to eat within a minutes walk it is a great place to stay.

    « Homeward Straight »

    It's the second time we've stopped here; 50 miles from Calais and just off the autoroute, it's ideal for a stopover before returning to England. Set in beautiful extensive grounds, ideal for stretching the legs after a long drive. Rooms are spacious, nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and with a large comfortable bed. Breakfast was good and set us up for the journey home. There are three excellent restaurants on site which accommodate all tastes and pockets. A good place to unwind before the journey home. Will definitely use again next time we travel through France.

    « Loving Housekeepers »

    My family is here staying at BW in Metairie following my son's Bone Marrow Transplant to save his life. We arrived about a month ago and everyday these ladies have ensured to help keep his environment healthy. We give special acknowledgment to Brandy, everyday you come you leave us with a note and memories of those with heart. Thank you for making my son's stay enjoyable and full of care. It really means a lot to our family during a strenuous time. This is what she left yesterday with her usual note while we were out for daily clinic visits. It put a smile on my son's face when we returned and a note expressing concern and well wishes for his health. Kudos Best Western crew; I pray everyone gets a special memory, as we have, during their stay!

    « "Naturel" wake up calls »

    The roosters from the near by farm already start at 4 am. So the early risers do not need to set the alarm clock. The hotel provides ear plugs for the rooms on one side of the building. I like nature but this is not ideal!

    « Good place for a stopover »

    Our last night en route from Cadaques to Calais. Large grounds, including a beautiful formal garden, which were perfect for a walk and a game of football after a day in the car. The room was large, decor was classic rather than modern... The on-site restaurants was excellent. We opted for the express breakfast in the morning which was more than enough for our needs.

    « driven from Provence on way to GB »

    We had stayed here before on the way to or from Provence. We had been fortunate before to stay at the Chateau but this time we were placed in the Great Western Hotel. Easy to find, 5 min from autoroute. Pleasant staff. Good double room , clean , Lovely restaurants-may need booking at peak times. 1hour to channel Tunnel. Breakfast €14

    « Lovely Hotel, fabulous gardens, great restaurants on complex »

    Arrived at this hotel as the last stop in France after visiting the South of France. Just under an hour south of Calais, just off the A26, good stop off after crossing the channel to heading back to the UK. Great hotel, rooms are converted barns, curved ceilings, tiled floors and modern decor. Comfy beds with white linen, very clean. Beautiful walled garden with fruit and veg growing and a large pond provides a lovely walk for guests. Great restaurants with seating indoor and outdoor. Would highly recommend and we will definitely return.

    « Brilliant stopover »

    Great place to stop that really needs more time to do it justice. Standard rooms are comfortable and quiet giving a good nights sleep. The gardens are outstanding and worth a visit for themselves. Three excellent restaurants give a super choice of meals.

    « Great location, excellent value for money »

    Part of a restaurant/hotel complex in the grounds of a restored monastery, this is the converted stable block of the luxurious chateau next door. Rooms are spacious and well appointed if a little Spartan, staff excellent. Three great restaurants at all price points on site, lovely gardens, and overall good value for money. An ideal location either for a stopover off the nearby but inaudible A26 or as a base for exploring WWI battlefields

    « Great stopover hotel »

    This is a great stopover hotel, easy to find , maybe 5 mins off motorway. Good parking and 3 restaurants on site with nice gardens to walk around. We had a dog with us and it was no troble at all. There is also a leading hotels hotel on the same site if you want a higher standard, but as a stopover this really is perfect Would I return ? yes it ticks all the boxes

    « Wonderful Meals, super staff and good location »

    We used the hotel as our base for travelling around the area. A super hotel with interesting and lovely old rooms. All mod cons, but no air conditioning, so could be warm!! We hit on a heatwave! Had the windows open and experienced the dawn chorus and the cockerels crowing, loved it! The hotel has a second upmarket hotel next door and shares three restaurants on site. We eat in two of of the three restaurants, all superb and eat three times. Excellent food, service and location. We would visit again and recommend.

    « Helpful Staff »

    We booked online via the best Western site and very soon received a confirmation email so good communication. When we arrived to book in I was a little concerned at the access as my partner is disabled and can't walk far so went ahead. My school French and the receptionists limited English we coped and we were allocated a 1st floor room. However when I asked where the lift was I was told there wasn't one. Another slightly difficult conversation followed whilst I explained that it wasn't possible without a lift to get up to the room, the lady kindly swapped us with another couple who hadn't booked in yet. The room itself was good size and comfortable. A nice bathroom which was very clean as well. The Hotel doesn't have a restaurant in the building, another minor irritation that isn't clear on the website, but the receptionist offered 3 choices which are in the confines of the old monastery and we chose Distillery, which I highly recommend. Breakfast is served in a room opposite reception and was good. plentiful food as well and plenty of freshly made hot coffee. A different lady on checkout dealt swiftly and courteously and when we were ready to leave kindly suggested we might like to use the side door in the breakfast room as it was easier to get into the car park and come out right by the car. We'd stay here again but ring a booking though to save any problems.

    « Everything we wanted and so friendly »

    We booked this hotel on the recommendation of a fellow French home owner we meet on our dog walks in the UK. We booked a Charming room in the annex as we have a young tall rescue dog and loved more or less everything. The room was spacious and the rustic look was clean and appealing. As we had booked the dog to stay they had provided a blanket for her to sleep on. The grounds were great for walking the dog and later in the year [when I am sure we will be back] they will be stunning as it is obvious someone spends a lot of time and effort in this area. We explained our dog was a young recently acquired rescue but everyone made her welcome in the hotel and the restaurant. This place is a bit pricey compared to the basic chain hotels available in France but worth the money for us. The restaurants were busy on a Saturday night and pretty much everyone was French - the quality of the food brings them in we think. Our Room [301] was spacious and I loved the bathroom. The only slight complaint from us was it was very warm but better than cold on April 2nd. We are already planning to use this hotel again

    « Cockerills drove me crazy »

    Stayed here for one night on a business trip. The menagerie next door contains a variety of cockerills and hens. These creatures starting sqwuaking loudly at midnight and did the same every half an hour until check-out time. Additionally the roof over the conservatory style bathroom was leaking and dripping rainwater onto the bathroom floor. Avoid room 401 and all rooms to the left as you face the hotel.

    « A good modern hotel that we shall stay at again. »

    I've read other reviews of this hotel on TripAdvisor - and I would agree that La Metairie is a good, modern hotel. It was just right for our need; breaking up the drive back from the Alps to England. We shall be returning to La Metairie soon, as part of a large family booking. We shall stay for a couple of nights while visiting the area where our great uncle flew during the first world war, and see his grave at Douai. I shouldn't think we'll be the first British people to use La Metairie in such a way!

    « Lovely Room, Great Value »

    We have stayed in La Chartreuse du Val Saint Esprit a few times and have enjoyed the location, grounds and choice of 3 restaurants. On this occasion we decided to try the Best Western, which shares those facilities with La Chartreuse. We booked a Charme room, which was lovely - tiled floors, vaulted ceilings, separate large bath and shower and its own front door into the garden/courtyard. It was excellent value - we paid around £85 in advance for bed & breakfast. Breakfast was a little chaotic. It was very busy at 8am, presumably because a lot of business people were staying, and it was difficult to find a table for two. There was a large empty bowl which had contained fruit salad. When I asked for it to be refilled I was told it was finished. I went to reception to complain and the lady working in the kitchen was immediately sent to one of the other kitchens to refill it. There is no bar in the hotel, so if you want a drink you have to use one of the bars in the restaurants.

    « Une tres bonne sejour »

    An excellent place to stay: overnight prior to catching the ferry/ Eurotunnel to England or to explore the surrounding region, especially the Christmas market at Arras. Keen gardeners will enjoy walking around the extensive kitchen garden and the nearby village is also within easy walking distance. We have eaten in two out of the three restaurants on site and enjoyed our meals immensely.

    « An unexpected, but pleasant surprise »

    This is a comparatively new hotel. What we didn't know when we booked it was that it is in the ownership of La Chatreuse du Val St Esprit which we have stayed at several times before over the years. La Metairie is built to blend in with La Chatreuse and shares the same well kept grounds. It has a large annexe and a large conference suite, but because it was summer the hotel was very quiet and the conference facilities were not being used. The hotel is only an hour away from Calais. The bedroom and en suite bathroom were very functional and we had all that was required for an overnight stop. The hotel and annexe are vry quiet and there is very adequate parking.

    « Very Disappointed »

    Had 2 nights at this hotel on our way back from Germany.First impression was very good, immaculate surroundings and plenty of car parking.Our room was in one of the vaulted courtyard rooms, these are very rustic with tiled floors and traditional french old furniture,no carpets here.3 restaurants on site which you have to read the menus on the wall for each one, good job it was dry.Copies of the menus need to be put in the rooms and an English version should be available.Because of this we dined out in the local town.The hairdryer in the bathroom was useless having only a 2foot lead, so was impossible to dry all of your hair.The wife struggled to get in and out of the bath but the shower worked OK.Nobody told us what was available that we could have had cooked for breakfast and was not worth the €13.The hotel lacked any atmosphere and was a great disappointment,I cannot therefore recommend this hotel.

    « A very pleasant surprise »

    We booked the hotel as a convenient means to resting overnight prior to an early start the next day. We have used Best Western in the past and knew the good standard of what we should expect. The hotel is located at 1 Rue de Fouquières, 62199 Gosnay, France. This is some 1 hour drive from the Eurotunnel at Calais. It is located about 7 minutes off the E15 and is very easy to find via the sat nav. On arrival, we were impressed by the overall layout and look of the hotel and its surroundings. Those members of staff that we encountered were all extremely polite, knowledgeable and helpful. We ate in the hotel restaurant and found the menu to be good, the food to be excellent and the general ambience to be restful and pleasing. Breakfast was more than adequate. There is a jewel to this hotel. It can be found to its rear and is a wonderful garden covering approximately 10000 square yards. It is used to supply the Hotel's restaurant with vegetables. I would encourage any guest to take time out to walk round the garden and enjoy its wonderful layout and location. All in all, this was an excellent choice for a stay. Would we use it again? Without question we would.

    « Amazing, affordable find near the A26 »

    I cannot take the credit for booking this one, but I sure can recommend it. I hadn't given this place to much of a thought when a friend of mine had chosen it for a stop over on route to our final destination - Centre Parcs, Les Trois Forets. OK so it's not to far over the channel, but it definitely warrants a stop - especially if you're trekking a long way (either leg of the journey). I'd booked a standard or 'quiet room' (as it was invoiced). It affords a little more comfort in a provencal style, away from the main building. Quiet spacious rooms, comfy beds and pillows made for a good nights sleep. Now for the real attraction the grounds and the adjoining chateau. We were fortunate to of had lovely weather late May and were able to take in the vast gardens, the produce of which supply the onsite restaurants. Well worth an hour if you have time. The Vasco restaurant is most definitely worth a visit. Not an overwhelming choice, but what there was is of typical french quality - high. As a group there were no complaints about the belly port, fillet beef, or lamb shank tagine. Not forgetting the snails.... mmmmm. We liked it so much we stayed on our return a week later. In summary a great little find, not to far from the A26. Rooms (at least mine) were very good for the price and food in the attached restaurant was really rather good. Breakfasts were good, if only a little light on choices - typical continental selection. Would recommend, and will hopefully return on next road trip.

    « Comfortable »

    There are two hotels on this site, Le Metairie and La Chartreuse, and three restaurants, all of excellent quality and different price ranges. Le Metairie was very quiet, the rooms were comfortable and breakfast was good. The restaurant we chose was good and all the staff were helpful.

    « A handy stop »

    Barely an hour away from Calais this hotel, just off the motorway provides the perfect place for an overnight stop. With beautiful gardens to walk around, three restaurants and beautiful countryside its very much a hotel that starts your journey through France on the right note

    « A Great Find! »

    We've used this hotel before when travelling to the south west of France. It's a great stopover after or before the tunnel - less than an hour to Calais. Lovely restaurants (the gourmet is a bit out of our league pricewise!) but the food and service are very good. What one would expect in France! The rooms are very good. Stay in the converted distillery warehouse - a bit more expensive but beautiful vaulted ceilings, under floor heating, big bathroom. Having said that, the rooms in the main building are very good - just be aware that there are no curtains ... use the electric blinds instead!
