Lovely room with a slightly colonial feel, clean, smart and great value, Private balcony and seating on each room overlooking the stunning beach with crashing waves, what more could you ask for? Well? next door to the hotel is probably the best takeaway Pizza I have ever had, coupled with a typical and very friendly French Pub just opposite. I... More

A simple over night trip to Dunkirk spoiled by horrific traffic, horrendous weather, rubbish hypermarket and concerns when we didn't seem able to check in - were dispelled by the very charming manager/owner of this hotel. Panic ensued when we appeared to not be able to get in but I blame the very confusing guest who claimed not to speak... More

Do not rely on the friendly confirmation booking you receive from Christine saying she is 'Remaining at your disposal for any other information'. I am now battling to get the £120 taken out of my bank account back. I emailed a cancellation to her on 9th Aug (I was unable to visit on my planned check in date of 18th... More

Lovely helpful staff and breakfast was fine. Room was very small, but clean and tidy. Bed was small and the mattress quite hard. However the bonus was the location of the hotel was just what we needed after driving 200 miles. It's next to the sea, which on a summers evening was a joy. A good choice of restaurants to... More

Very small but clean rooms with a tiny balkony, standing at the wash basin in the bathroom my back was still in the room. Do eat in one of the many beautiful restaurants in the area, give the hotel food a miss. No one speaks english but that did not bother me, gave me a chance to freshen up my... More

We stayed here on a spontaneous trip to Dunkerque for one night. The owner came down to meet us after pressing the buzzer and we were pleasantly surprised at how easily he switched between French and fluent English. We were shown to a clean room which was perfect with a lovely view of the sea and a nice sun drenched... More

We enjoyed our one night stay. The room was fine, clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a good location , close to the sea, good view from the balcony. Friendly service and a nice breakfast. We would stay again .

My family stayed for only 2 nights, but I have to say thanks to Vincent and Christine for a warm welcome. The Transat Bleu looks dated from the outside but the rooms are clean and comfortable. There are no lifts but as we were on the first floor it didn't matter. Its close to the beach and there are plenty... More

A nice location near the sea and beach front bars, and should be very pleasant once the road works have finished. The hotel would profit from a facelift and seems a little run down, much like the surrounding area. Parking seemed sparse but we managed, maybe because guests were few at the time of our visit. The manager was really... More
