“Wonderful place to eat and stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

My wife and I and another couple have just spent a night at Saint Louis and cannot praise it enough. The fact that it is a Logis is the first clue that you are going to be in for a treat - they have never let us down yet. The building itself, as you arrive, is very impressive and is matched by the friendly welcome you receive as you enter the building. The rooms are named after the French regions and are average size and very clean and comfortable, with quite a large en suite bathroom - including a bath. However, the feature that really sets this hotel above the others is its fantastic restaurant which offers the most fantastic gourmet food. We all settled for the most expensive menu which was 48 euros and consisted of 2 starters a main course and puddings or cheese. We were given little canapes with our drinks in the lounge before the meal, a little ammuse bouche when we sat down at the table and an iced sorbet halfway through the meal. Everything was beautifully cooked from the scallops, hare terrine, wild boar to the fillet steaks. The sweet trolley is loaded with delicious offerings and we couldn't believe it when our waitress said we could each choose 3. If there was to be any complaint at all it would be that the wines seemed to be a little pricey and there was no 'house wine' sold by the caraffe. But that is being very churlish and is more a reflection on me than the hotel! The total cost for the room, cocktails, and superb meal was around £170 per couple. All this a mere 30 minutes from Calais.

We were looking for an overnight stop not too far from Calais and found this charming hotel/restaurant circa 30-40 minutes from the ferry. The other reviews I read here are quite right in that the rooms are a little dated, but spotlessly clean. The food is quite outstanding - in particular I would mention the king prawns in a bisque which is probably one of my most memorable food moments. The only criticism is that the wine list was aimed at the more expensive end of the market, but the house wine at Eur 19 a bottle was very acceptable. Definitely going back to work our way through the menu!

we stayed 1 night during the Remembrance Day weekend , the hotel was a very nice sight in the rain lashed gloom of the saturday evening . The reception staff were good , and the room very comfortable , although the chintzy decor irritated my minimalist wife , but i reminded her that we are staying just 1 night and not moving in .
The outstanding feature of this hotel is the food , it is way above 3 star , and I cannot recommend it too highly , the dining room service is also very good .
The hotel was packed with Brits when we stayed , and the couple on a neighbouring table in the restaurant turned out to be living about 5 miles from us at home , small world isn't it ?
We didn't try breakfast as we had no room to fit it in after last nights dinner .
The superior room we booked was spacious with a nice size bathroom , and you can get BBC 1 & 2 on the TV , although the hours time difference meant that our dinner clashed with 'Strictly' .

My wife and I have stayed here frequently. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms (and beds) comfortable, the cuisine outstanding. Do walk up into the town and visit the church and local bar for a taste of Flandres, the patisserie is pretty good too!

This is our fifth visit and the standard of comfort and service remains excellent. If anything we felt the food had improved a little and was even better value for money. We also liked the revamped garden and the fountain, which brightens up the front of the house.

We arrived at the Hostellerie on a dark and windy night, having driven along some hairy backroads (did manage to get a little lost!). The outside looked lovely. Floodlit, with a fountain running outside, it just looked inviting.
However, our welcome was not quite so good - everyone was rushing around getting ready for dinner service and the girl we spoke to was rather hurried and not the most friendlest I have met. She showed us to our room, with us running after her.
The rooms, as others have said, are not the most luxurious. They are neat and clean and contain most things you need. However, it should be noted that there are blankets instead of duvets on the beds - the first time I have found this in France. We were frozen when we arrived but soon waarmed up with the very efficient wall heater turned up.
We had sent an e-mail in advance to reserve a place in the restaurant to eat. And what a meal we had! It was fabulous! The husband and wife team were very friendly, pleasant and helpful. We had a superb three course meal, plus amuse bouche, for 35 euros. That included beef fillet! Very good value and beautifully cooked.
We slept well, despite the blankets. In fact we nearly overslept and missed breakfast! Luckily we made it in time. Breakfast was good, with a good choice of foods. I would have liked to have seen more than one type of bread, though, as I love crusty French breads. That aside, we had a good meal, and plenty of it.
We then went back to our room to collect our bag before checking out.
We will definately be back!

We stayed at this Hostellerie for 4 nights on a trip in France and cannot rate it highly enough. Our welcome was friendly and thorough and we were shown to a very comfortable room with all the facilities we needed. It was clean and fresh and very well maintained.
Later that evening we were treated to the first of four outstanding meals in the restaurant. The food was exceptional, very well prepared by the Owner/Chef M. Phillipe who is a magician of the kitchen and produces amazing flavour combinations. The meal was made better by a very expansive wine list but it was completed by the staff who were friendly, professional and amazing in the way the treated their guests. They obviously followed the example of the owner, Mme Bea, who assisted in the service in the restaurant but also found time to visit every table and speak to the diners in a variety of languages. A truly memorable stay in a beautiful setting with an amazing group of people.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are good because they are all in this venue.
