 We stay here for a night most years on the way to and from the Tunnel, it's very convenient and comfortable, and not overly expensive with ACSI discount. This time we stayed an extra night to allow us to relax properly before our crossing.

It was much quieter than usual, the restaurant and shop were closed and sections of the site were closed too, but otherwise things were much as normal for low season.

It's worth taking an extra day, or even a couple of hours, to explore the area, you can find maps and leaflets at the Tourist office next door to the campsite. It's a short walk into the village, there is a small market on a Friday. Beyond the market square you come to a pretty canal with a cycle path on the far side which leads on to a network of cycle paths across the marshes. Or follow the village trail and feed the ducks.

 Excellent site, It's always our first and last stop of our holidays if we're crossing at Calais.

There is wifi that is available at the bar, but you need a code (available from behind the bar) and the quality is often ropey and frequently drops out. Mobile signal is good though.

 What a surprising little site!

Due to its proximity to Calais and how it lends itself to people using it as either a first or last stop to or from the port or tunnel I was expecting it to be a little on the lower reading of the scale but it is really nice site!

Set in the grounds of a manor house it has loads of space for tourers and tents and also has eurocamp type tents. The facilities are well maintained and there is a nice pool with an opening roof. There is a decent bar serving food, a small shop and an upmarket restaurant on site but I advise that you book your table as soon as you can as it's very difficult to get a table.

I can't really fault the place and was amazed by it after stumbling on it by accident. It's about 15 mins away from the tunnel and definitely worth checking out either on you way in or out of France.

 We've used this site a good few times over the years but only for an overnight at beginning or end of our hols. It's an ideal location for Eurotunnel.

This stay, we noticed they've a new area for 'superior' pitches. These are large, level and complete with picnic bench and garden garden shed containing, apparently, BBQ and fridge. These pitches naturally attract a premium price tag and weren't available on ACSI charge of Ä19. 00

The campsite was largely empty when we were there, yet we were offered choice of just 2 pitches, which seemed a bit odd. Nevertheless, we were very happy and the site, as usual, felt safe and well maintained.

One small niggle: there was no soap in the dispensers. Oversight or cost-cutting measure?

 Very expensive site for what you get. We had a pitch behind some log cabins where children were playing and kicking footballs onto the caravans and Motorhomes.

Buses just outside the site take you into Calais which was the main reason we stayed at this site. Pool is very small and busy for the size of the site.

Lidl & carrefour only 1. 5 miles away. Toilets & showers were decent with hot water.

Never used the restaurants and the children's play area was right next to the restaurant & pub.

 Reviewers - mature couple with campervan and bikes.

We stay here for an overnight most years, pre or post Tunnel crossing, as it is very convenient. However we made a decision a few years ago to only use the site during the ACSI discount season.

This year we stayed on our way home, a week or so before they closed for the winter. The site was quite busy with tourers, but I was surprised to find that in the main facility block, only the heated facility was open, leaving 2 toilets and 3 showers in use, there were constant queues.

We had been invited to choose our own pitch and had chosen a pitch near the facilities. However on further investigation, I found the facility next to the pool open, which has plenty of toilets and showers, and was very quiet.

In similar circumstances, I would make a point of asking which blocks are open, I had assumed they would all be. Bearing in mind the still quite expensive price I was rather disappointed.

 We stopped here for 1 night before coming home. We can see why Brits love this, as it is a large, tranquil and green site which very much seems to cater to its (mostly) British clientelle. Overnighters may not make full use of the facilities and could find it expensive. We paid 40 euros.

There were a few British holiday makers who were clearly there for a longer period and for those who want a taste of France without travelling too far and who are accustomed to the Caravan Club type set up this is ideal.

There is a covered pool; an extensive shop; a bar/snack bar in the British pub style; and access to a reasonable restaurant. We ate in the restaurant and found the food of a good standard.

Free WiFi is supposedly available for 35 minutes if you buy a drink in the bar. We tried this, but were unable to make a connection. With so many other campsites now offering good quality free WiFi over larger areas, we feel that this is something which should be addressed.

Washing facilities were excellent, with a heated enclosed area for those chillier days.

The site is within easy reach of the tunnel and ports and also of the Auchan in Coquelles for last minute shopping and fuel. Guines itself doesn't have a great deal. We had hoped to find somewhere to eat, but we assume that most people stay on site as there didn't seem to be anywhere in the village.

We used this site by default as the one we originally looked for seemed to have closed. For one night it was expensive and, although a lovely site, we are not sure we would use it again for a single night stop.

 We last visited this site in 2008. It was then a 3 star site having been downgraded a few years earlier. We felt then that the site was ok but was let down badly by the awful food in the takeaway and bar.

I said at the end of my review that I didnít think it would be long before Monsieur Le Camping would again be painting an extra star on his board outside the site. Well, the cheeky devil has only gone and painted 2 extra stars on his sign. In fact itís a brand new sign.

This site is now a 5 star site and it is well deserved. The pitches all look to be in good order. Site accommodation looks modern. Some of the toilet blocks are heated. In fact all the facilities now look very good indeed.

The food in the takeaway is now improved and well worth the money. The whole place looks like a new site. I can now thoroughly recommend La Bien Assise not only for stopovers but for longer holidays as well.

 Calais site only 10/15 mins away from Calais / channel tunnel

Stayed here for one night as used the tunnel crossing on route to Belgium, good communication, got there at 10:30 at night and pulled into a really long pitch, stayed hooked up so we could just leave in the morning and someone pulled in behind us later on so very big pitch.

Very efficient and professional

Toilets were ok not the best but had no hand wash which really annoys me.

Didn't see the pool or other amenities so can't comment.

Stayed August 2015, travelled with family
