We arrived late afternoon on a sunday. Found the B&B easily with the satnav and parked in the street outside with the help of Veronique the friendly and helpful proprietor. It was great with a really good breakfast the following morning. Cannot fault it. Thank you Veronique.

Amazing hotel, spotlessly clean with a superb breakfast following morning. You are made to feel like family. Wonderful building with original features. Thank you Veronique for being such a wonderful host. Pat, John and Roy.

Re-visited this Guest House last week and were again welcomed by Veronique. The rooms are really comfortable and clean, although the rooms at the front will be subject to some traffic noise from the road outside. The continental breakfast is absolutely fabulous, you will not leave hungry and Veronique is such a lovely host. The Guest House is about a... More

I spent a night at this wonderful hotel - the room was clean and fabulously furnished, coffee and tea were provided, a lovely bathroom, WIFI and a TV. A full breakfast was provided in the morning (croissants, cerial, tea, coffee, orange juice etc) in a very relaxed environment. Veronique was a wonderful host, she provided me with travel advice and... More

I just picked this establishment from Booking.com and it turned out super for me. I was not due to arrive in Dunkerque until 23-00 hrs and then I had to find the place. It is about 30 mins drive to the centre of Dunkerque. The lady of the house waited up for me, for which I was very thankful. I... More

Visited this hotel again, absolutely fabulous. Veronique and Christophe so welcoming, it was like visiting close family. Glass of wine before we were shown to our exceedingly comfortable room. Shutters help,to keep out the late night/early morning traffic noise. Breakfast superb, choice of food excellent and Veronique on hand to make sure you are happy. Thoroughly recommend this hotel that... More

What a wonderful hostess Veronique is! We arrived very early, she showed us in and let us leave our luggage until our room was ready. She was instrumental in helping us with arranging a museum tour, which was the entire point of our trip to Dunkerque. She reached out to the museum directly when we had trouble trying to arrange...

We were looking for a hotel/B&B in Dunkerque which would be fairly close to both the ferry and the hypermarket at Auchan. This hotel fitted both criteria. Our TomTom satnav took us straight to the front door (to the left of a Pizza shop). The young lady who greeted us spoke excellent English and was warm and welcoming. She showed... More

We received a very warm welcome and were shown us to our room. As we needed to dinner, our host recommended a restaurant on the seafront; she even called the restaurant to make our reservation! We were not disappointed with her recommendation :-) The room was extremely clean and spacious, comfortable and modern, and had a nice en-suite with shower... More
