My partner and I stayed here for one night in early June. The owners - Caroline & Martial - greeted us warmly and were particularly pleasant and helpful throughout our short stay. Our room was clean and well kept with TV, wifi and ensuite with shower (but do bring soap and shower gel as only one small sachet is provided).... More

Great shower but could have done with more soap than the little sachet, handy garage for our motorbike, would recommend for other tourers -please help Martial convince his wife he needs a new ZZR1400, lovely people, good value, good location. Would stay here again.

Chose La Bononia for our family holiday based upon its excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, and we were not let down. This charming B&B sits atop a hill in a quiet neighborhood, about a 5-minute walk to the Fortified Town and a 10-minute walk to the Old Town. Even closer, just at the bottom of the hill, are a few...

stayed for one night on the recommendation of my brother. He was spot on. Lovely family own and run the place. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast, with the family, was essentially French and quite adequate...Plenty of on street parking available, located on a hill near the Cathedral. Easy walk down into town. A little more strenuous return.... More

We always try to stay at La Bononia nowadays. Having had two very good experiences in the last couple of years we were delighted that Martial and Caroline had room for us both during our visit last week. A three night stay rather than the usual one night stay. We always like to stay near the Old Town of Boulogne.... More

Stayed here at the start of a trip through France. Martial looked after us really well with lots of information and tips on restaurants etc. Old town is a 10 minute walk down the hill. Our room was the smallest of the three they have (our decision as it was a one night stopover). It was very comfortable and the... More

Oh my goodness, I don't know how to express my feelings about this. It is the traditional idea of a B&B, in that it is Caroline and Martial's home, into which they welcome guests like cherished friends, but it also feels like a very select, but warm and relaxed, boutique hotel. The room we stayed in was large and very... More

A perfect B&B run by Caroline and Martial who are welcoming and friendly. Super rooms, spacious and spotless, ours even has a view over the old town towards the sea. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was huge! We travelled with our daughter and her family and their very large family room was just as good. Breakfast around a huge... More

We stayed here for 1 night this week staying in their family room "Nausicaa". The family are very welcoming and the room was beautifully appointed with a TV, fridge, spacious storage and a beautiful and spotlessly clean ensuite. The room is large with huge windows so light and airy. The beds were comfortable and everyone thoroughly enjoyed being there. The... More
