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

Just a perfect B&B in Boulogne, very easy to walk into the old town. Good restaurant recommendations, comfortable and attractive rooms. The welcome is warm and the facilities are good, very up to date while having an elegance about them as well. Rooms are clean, breakfast is typical french, croissants and jam. We will certainly return, hopefully soon.

Caroline and Martial are fantastic hosts and made us very welcome. We enjoyed our 3 nights at La Bononia in a comfortable and well equipped bedroom and on-suite. It's just a few minutes walk to the old town and some good restaurants, and a short drive to the beaches at Wimereux and Le Touquet.
