Camping in France

Overnight Ferry Port Hotels

Are you looking for an overnight ferry port hotel?

Most people in the UK travel to France for their family camping holiday from one of the many ferry ports located on the south coast of England or indeed the Eurotunnel. Whether you’re travelling via the the Eurotunnel at Folkestone or from Dover, Portsmouth, Plymouth or one of the other popular ferry ports in England, there’s one thing you may need to consider and thats whether you’d be better off staying in one of the overnight ferry port hotels prior to sailing.

Why book an overnight stay in a hotel?

There are two main reasons why people book an overnight stay in a hotel prior to travelling to France.

The first is to ensure that you get to your ferry on time! Many people prefer to travel on the early morning ferries to allow themselves plenty of time to travel to their chosen campsite once they reach France. This often means leaving home at some ridiculous time in the morning or even the night before in some cases. Booking an overnight stay at a hotel that’s located within easy reach of the ferry terminal means you don’t have to worry about traffic or other unforeseen circumstances that may lead to you having to rush or even miss your ferry.

The second and more important reason is to ensure you can board you ferry feeling refreshed at the start of your holiday. Those living far away from the ferry port will have a long journey before they even reach France and likewise if you’re planning on travelling far into France once you’ve crossed the Channel, you want to feel ready to go instead of felling tired before you even begin.

Both of these reasons lead many people every year to book an overnight stay in one of the many hotels located near to the ferry ports. There’s nothing better than waking up after a long journey to the ferry port or getting a good nights sleep prior to a long journey through France.

There are many hotels located near to each of the ferry ports and to help you find your ideal overnight hotel we’ve put together a list of the ferry ports and links to hotels nearby. Simply choose the ferry port your planning on leaving from and then click the links to gain out more.
