This is a great hotel to stay in if you would like to discover two of the nicest coastal towns in Picardy - St Valery and Le Crotroy. It is just five to ten minutes drive from both. The check in is friendly and efficient and rooms have modern decor and are spotless. There are beautiful views from the rooms both front and back. The hotel has nice grounds with a large pond (with frogs in it that you can hear gently croaking!) and the downstairs rooms all have tables outside that you can sit at. There is also a nice decking area where you can sit out ink the sun.
We really enjoyed breakfast, the choice was good, the bread and croissants fresh and good quality and the surroundings nice. We were unfortunately disappointed with dinner though. This seems to be recurrent in many of the reviews. Our main complaint was that the meat was tough (unusual in France) and overcooked. Each different meat or fish dish that we tried tasted as if it had been microwaved, the bread certainly had been. No one came to check if the meal was ok and when I mentioned that the meat was tough and that was why I had left nearly all of it, all I got was a simple "oh". I would have been happy with some extra vegetables instead but nothing was done about it and we were charged full price. I think that if the hotel simplified its menu and proposed less choice but a few specialities, they might do better.
I would encourage people to stay at the hotel for the rooms and the excellent breakfast but I would recommend going to a restaurant elsewhere. There is quite a lot of choice in both towns nearby
