Saw some decent reviews on this place and we dived in, a little hasty. Yes, a good price but after the lovely B & B's we had stayed in for the past few days, this place just couldn't compare and was therefore disappointing. Friendly, clean but kind of sterile and faceless. We slept OK so you could say job done... More

Our second stay here and it will not be the last. We stayed in room 21, a separate building at the end of the garden. Room 21 has a separate, well appointed kitchen - very useful for a longer visit. Wi-fi coverage was very good and reasonably fast. 'Gino' was friendly and helpful.

This was a great little find in Etaples and very close to Le Touquet. Nice modern accommodation, fridge, microwave, free parking and free wi-fi! Had easy check in and after asking how to connect to wi-fi and experiencing some difficulty the nice man sorted me out very quickly and I was connected! Room quite small but was all I needed... More

We only stayed one night, the best that could be said of Chez Gino was that it was adequate. The room was shabby and badly furnished. Only one bedside light worked, the other had no light bulb and there was no central light. By the time we discovered this at about 9pm the reception had closed. Neither could we access... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment in this hotel and I found it disappointing. The apartment was a good size but the rooms are fairly run down and in need of various repairs. The furniture is mismatched and half the kitchen appliances are in the hallway! The place also smelt a little damp and musty. The bathroom was tired... More

We booked this place on the strength of Trip Advisor and booking.com reviews. Yet it is amongst the worse places we have ever stayed. Do not book here. Really, I don't understand how the other reviews can relate to the same place we had the misfortune of staying at and unfortunately it undermines my trust of such reviews. Perhaps you... More

Sir, Thank you for your comment, but it is obvious that I will not let them say anything about my school, so I will gladly use my right of reply. But I'd shorter than your comment, because I do not think this story deserves more. So I take every point you stated: About my attitude vis-à-vis my clients know that... More

We stayed for four nights and had breakfast. The room was comfortable with a good shower and bathroom attached. A great plus was the kettle, microwave and fridge - the fridge was great as it was very hot weather when we were there. They have a great variety of room sizes, so if you want a large one ask for...

We were worried as this was the first night of a trip down to S Spain with 2 dogs. Apart from the town being shut we were made very welcome by the owner and the private garden prepared for dog owners to keep clean and tidy for other guests. Would visit again with no hesitation but choose a better time... More

Went to Etaples for the Herring Festival, so just looked for a reasonable place. This place came out as number 1 in Etaples, I must say I was surprised. Yes, the staff were very nice, no taking that away from them. The room was a good size, however, it smelt really damp, especially in the bathroom....the shower was so small,... More

We have stayed in very many of France's excellent 2 star chain hotels over the past 40 years but Chez Gino beats them all for quality, cleanliness and value for money. We had a spacious comfortable and very clean room with a separate sitting area with its own sauna - all for a very reasonable price. A good, honest, French... More
