Booked in here before morning tunnel crossing, as close to the tunnel.

The site is pretty enough and pitches spacious, although some slope slightly.

The sanitary block is average, certainly not 4*, but nontheless clean.

The pool is small and the slide may as well have been switched off (watched a child struggle to slide down, then stand up and walk down it!).

Wifi expensive for the time given.

All in all a pretty site, worth the cost on acsi, but not without.

We really love this site. It is so convenient for the ferry/eurotunnel and is very pleasant to spend a night or two. The staff are friendly and helpful - for example one of the staff was very happy to photocopy a walking route for us. Pitches are certainly large enough for most units - some are flat and some slightly sloping. There is a useful little shop on site where you can pre-order bread and buy essentials. The toilets and showers were kept very clean. The swimming pool looked inviting but we didn't use it. The little town of Guines is unremarkable but there are a few pleasant walks in the area if you need to stretch your legs after a long drive.

As we needed to stay for our dog - we use the vet near Ardres, it was convenient. We have ACSI so they charged us 18 euros a night (two nights) + 6 euros - I presume for the dog - or tax?

Total for two nights was 43 euros.

The exception was the WIFI - it has almost become an obsession with us. If the service is bad but free, you can forgive, but when the campsite charges 3 euros for a hour (for one computer) or 6 euros for three hours (and the internet is in anycase slow) - it starts to be a point of contention.

I'm not sure what the solution is, but we have now made a conscious decision to eliminate campsites that (in our opinion) think it's ok to make a profit from the internet. It should be a service (with a minimum fee if necessary) - not a money making machine. This is because people who travel need to stay in touch with their families.

Apart from that, the campsite ticked most boxes in the sense that it was clean and offered the necessary services. We won't be back.

This was my first camping trip along with my husband and 9yr old.

Arrived at 2am so had to sleep in car and wait until office opened at 9am. Quite easy to find. Shown to adequate pitch amongst tourers and statics, close enough to toilet blocks etc.

Showers/toilets were relatively clean though a little dated (not a fan of spiders crawling overhead), some such as the individual cubicles by the pool had sections of roof missing but the wonderful powerful and warm shower made up for this.

Our daughter loved the swimming pool (though the flume and splash pool were icy cold) which was kept covered due to the time of year - seats around pools were constantly wet from the condensation, ping-pong and crazy golf. Park was a bit too young for her but had two swings near the shop.

Didn't make use of the shop or bar so can't comment on this - 15min walk took us into village where we found a lovely bakery and other shops for provisions. 15min drive to Calais to access shopping mall with large Carrfore stocking gas etc. If you don't do anything else on holiday go down to Calais beach and have one of the waffle ice creams with 3 flavours - excellent value for money,

Quite a few dogs on site and large enough to walk them around, wasn't aware of any dog mess etc.

Caravans seemed adequately spaced.

Now have a caravan and would def consider stopping off here again.

An attractive site, very close to Calais. The site is in a rural location and has a lovely feel to the place. It appears to be generally used by British holiday makers using this as a stop over before catching the ferry, but would be perfectly pleasant for a longer stay. There is lots to do in the area, good shopping, lovely beaches and countryside. The site is very well equipped with a bar, restaurant and take away, The grounds are clean, tidy and well maintained. The pitches are of a good size and generally level. There is lots to do for the children, such as a large play area, one for small children and one for older children. The pool is clean and warm, although the slide and slide pool was not heated, the kids did not seem to notice and enjoyed the slide. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We used this site for 2 night stop over and would definitely use again.

Being August and arriving late from the tunnel I had pre-booked for one night. An expensive process as it was peak tarrif and they charge a booking fee as well. However, we were well placed for an early start the following morning which is what we wanted. The site access is good and the pitches generous enough - certainly for a night halt which is what a large number of felow campers use it for. We ate in the restaurant next door which was delicious and although our kids have long fled the coup, we noticed a nice pool and plenty of facilities for youngsters. The loos and washing areas were ok but being a busy August suffered from inattention.

Overall, this site does the trick for an overnighter which is something we shall continue to use it for.
