“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

I found Hippotel to be beautifully located in a forested area and not too far from the main centre of Le Toquet. For those who prefer a family-oriented location, slightly away from the general hubbub and night life, this is ideal. The apartment style room we had contained simple beds, but were clean and reasonably spacious, both with a balcony. I did think that the criticism of cheap fittings in the bathroom and toilet were justified, but did not experience any discomfort as a result of them. The apartment slept 4 (we were 2 adults) so might have been cramped for 4 people. Breakfast not included in the price, but the buffet available has enough variety (French-style) to keep things moderately interesting for a few days (no cooked breakfasts...this is France remember?). Plenty of good dining in the town though and the nearby Loupe restaurant served a grand meal as well.

Pro's: nice rooms, quiet environment, walking distance to city center, ample parking space, easy access, nice staff

Con's: free wifi only available in lobby and not room, active connection is cut automatically every 5 minutes, wifi needs login and password handed out by reception which is only valid for one day so you have to ask for a new one each day, toilet paper is not restocked for you so you'll have to provide it yourself if you're out, rooms miss a couch or lounge chair to read a book or watch tv, bed was not comfortable from my experience

Just got back from a short stay in Le Touquet with my husband, teenage daughter and her friend. We arrived early in Le Touquet and unfortunately got caught in a downpour of rain and were soaking wet. The English receptionist was very kind and found us a room early at midday (the check-in time should have been 3.00 pm). We found all staff, without exception, were extremely polite and efficient - in fact I would have rated them 5*. The communcal areas were very clean and tidy. We were given a room for four people which consisted of a seperate toilet, shower (with good pressure) and basin, the hallway had a small cupboard and twin bunk beds, the main room had a small kitchen area with two cooking rings, a fridge, sink and storage space with basic kitchen equipment (ie: cups, plates, cutlery, bowls, saucepans etc - no kettle but used the coffee maker to heat up water), two beds, a couple of basic chest of drawers, four chairs and a table, a TV and a balcony with table and two chairs. It was basic, clean, tidy although a little dated. The mattresses were a little hard, and the pillows very flat and although all sheets were fresh and clean. Remember to take some towels as these are provided at an extra cost and basics such as washing up liquid, sponge, tea towel etc. We paid under £60 per night for four which was far less than half the price of any of the other accommodation available in Le Touquet. It was perfect for us and with the saving we had a really wonderful three course meal in Le Touquet which was great. The location is near an equestrian centre (but no smells at all), in a wooded residential area about 10/15 min walk from both the town and beach. For a budget stay in Le Touquet for a family or group I think you can't beat the Hotel Residence Hippotel!

Good basic hotel. Clean, warm, comfortable, in quiet, peaceful surroundings.
Cannot understand the criticisms.
What do people want for their money?
Good Value
