“A must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I stayed here with a group of friends whilst exploring the area looking at V1 and V2 rocket sites. On arrival our hosts were most welcoming ( how bad is this? I don't know their names). Even though their English was limited it was better than our French and between us we understood each other. The menu was quite limited but it is all locally sourced and cooked to order, you will not be disappointed. A good choice of beers and wines are available in the bar/dining room. The rooms were spotless, the bed comfortable and with blackout blind fitted to the roof window a good night's sleep was had by all. The auberge is pretty much in the middle of nowhere but with good company, great hosts, great food and drink you can't go far wrong.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Stayed a couple of nights here and had a wonderful stay. We were a party of 5 motorcyclists and booked a triple and a twin room. On arrival the owner took his Merc out of the garage to give us dry secure parking. We had a friendly welcome and were soon down in the bar area, we asked for the menu, for a moment I was disappointed, but after a chat around what was on offer, and the fact it is all sourced locally off we went, the meal was fantastic, over two nights we probably had the whole menu.
The auberge is pretty isolated with no surrounding amenities, but it's location so close to Calais makes it an ideal stop off, or base to explore the area. The owners don't speak much English but we all made ourselves understood. The rooms were large spotlessly clean, on the whole it was a great stay, I would recommend a stay although the property is currently up for sale so you may get different owners. Well worth a stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We needed to find a hotel near Dunkirk and my usual hotel was booked out. Instead I decided to book a superior double room at this auberge. The price was very good value (breakfast was included) and there was free wi-fi available throughout the auberge. It has a restaurant with a small but delicious menu (meat is locally sourced from a free-range farmer) and everything is prepared with love. The selection of local beer draught and bottled beers is excellent. Our hosts couldn't do enough to make our stay a happy one and we felt as though we had spent an evening with friends, one which we will remember for a long time. It was a real eye-opener and a treat. We will definitely return. The ferry at Dunkirk is only a 20 minute drive, so it is really convenient if you are travelling to England.
