Stayed here one passing through on our way from Normandy to the Somme region. Was pleased with the rate we got and the facilities. Smaller property, but comfortable and quiet. Surrounding area was fairly dead due to it being Monday, but hotel is a 10-15 min walk from beach area w/ several bars and restaurants. We left before breakfast, so... More

Best 2 star hotel we stayed in on our recent trip to France. Tomas the receptionist was very helpful, the rooms were absolutely fine. Didn't get up in time for breakfast so cant comment. Added bonus was tea/coffee facilities in the foyer.

The room was little, but lovely arranged. The breakfast was delicately, for everybodies savour something. Even a watercooker to help yourself with free coffee or tea was available at any time. The service was excellent, English speaking and very attentive. Good hints for parking, eating outside and a friendly face everytime.

Booked this hotel as it is part of the Contact hotel arrangement of independent hoteliers. Good value and a good location for the port and beach and lots of restaurants. Easy to park nearby. Friendly and obliging owners. Small room which was fine for our one night stay but I wouldn't want to stay longer. Clean and comfortable. Decent size... More

I Stayed here on 15/16th May 2013 as a stopover when touring on a motorcycle this year. I found the management to be most helpful and yet more so I found the staff (Sabrina)to me highly professional and very personable. The breakfast is excellent and this is close to all amenities and the port. Recommended

We needed an affordable stay for one night and this was a solid choice. Good location and a clean (if tiny) room. We were in #19, which had a double bed and little room for anything else. One had to climb across the bed to open the window, which looked out onto a main street for a lovely breeze. Many... More
