This is my first ever negative review. I would avoid this place at all cost. We arrived at the time stated to be told that the actual hotel was an "annex". The waitress who eventually gave me a key after a 40 minute wait gave me an unreadable map and basically left us to it. She pointed me in the... More

We returned to Wissant for a short break after driving through earlier in the year. We spotted Le Vivier and booked specifically to try the seafood restaurant........................It was closed. Very disappointed. We had taken walking shoes to explore the beautiful coastline but the awful weather changed our plans. It was May so didn't expect to be sunbathing. We still think... More

Just a 20 minute drive from Calais, wonderful! Helen made us very welcome, we had a room above the restaurant - simple, clean and convenient for checking out the town and beach. We ate in the restaurant, the most delicious seafood and a great recommended bottle of chilled red wine (or was it 2?). Perfect. Thank you 'Le Vivier' -... More

What a delightful small family run hotel and restaurant Le Vivier is. We came across it by accident and were offered a sea view room in the annexe, which is 2 minutes by car, 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel but we decided to forgo the view in favour of the convenience of staying in the town and above the...

We arrived at this hotel late evening and didn't realise that the hotel and the restaurant were not in the same building, or location. It is a short drive between the two and the hotel is a 15-20 minute walk from the town (where all the restaurants are). The instructions were not clear at the hotel (there is a map... More

We have been staying in Wissant for about 25 years and have seen changes to Le Vivier. It was always quirky and full of charm but unfortunately both hotel annexe and restaurant were disappointing. We arrived in the afternoon to be told our room was not available. Come back in 1 hour. No apology no offer of a coffee whilst... More

We stayed in the annex - on the way out of town, but views were simply fabulous over the lake and the sea, our room had patio doors onto a small balcony. The whole place was spotlessly clean and we will certainly go back. From the annex to the beach is about a 10 minute walk (down hill) perhaps a... More

We stayed for three nights and had a lovely clean, fresh and comfortable room with bathroom and terrace which overlooked the lake and sea. We were greeted by a very jolly French man and given directions to our hotel which was a two minute drive from the main hotel/restaurant. Breakfast was served inside or out and the food and coffee...
