“Nice town for an overnight stopover/weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Montreuil-sur-mer is a nice typical northern French town. Despite the name of the town it is not actually on the sea but on a hilltop. The hotel is comfortable and clean and has everything you need but nothing special. The location is good and the town has plenty of choice of bars, shops and restaurants. We chose not to pay to 10 euros to park and found parking on the street at the back of the hotel - this was in October though and may not be so easy in the summer. We also chose not to pay 15 euros for breakfast and had a very simple breakfast of coffee, bread and jam in a small cafe in the square. Our only complaint is that when we returned to the hotel after our meal at 10.00pm for a nightcap the bar was closed. We found a bar in the square that was open until midnight and happy to serve us coffee and cognac.

Hotel Coq is pretty well unchanged from our last visit three years ago. A beautiful old house with a particularly attractive dining room but with modern comfortable well-equipped rooms. Buffet breakfast provided a good choice of cereals, real orange juice, cold cuts, and wonderful fresh bread and croissants. Dinner was good but I think there may be better-value restaurants in Montreuil. All in all, a hotel of charm and individuality which has a real French feel.

Room Tip: The rooms in the annexe beyond the courtyard are fully modernised (we had Room 22 which had a nice v...

We stayed overnight while returning from the Dordogne and were left thinking we'd like to try this again, a winter weekend break perhaps.

The room was excellent, bathroom well equipped, comfortable large bed and a couple of easy chairs in the room made it easy to live with. Good choice on the menu and a very elegant tasteful dining room made for a good dining experience.

I agree with other comments regarding the reception area in the newer part of the hotel, somehow it doesn't seem to have a purpose, maybe the decor or furniture doesn't quite work here.

Great breakfast selection with the exception of eggs(missing?) but at 15 euros make sure you've got a 15 euro appetite otherwise pop round the corner for a croissant and coffee.

Just returned from another weekend at this lovely hotel. This must be the fourth or fifth visit now.
The owner, Brigite is a gem. Such a smashing person and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are in a purpose built building just beyond the courtyard and they must be the cleanest hotel rooms on this earth. The whole place is spotless. The breakfast is super, truly continental with wonderful breads, pates and meats. We ate there on Saturday and as always the food was excellent. Perfectly placed to see the lovely town, shop at the chocolate shop and stock up with wine. They have also just opened a soup bar which is also excellent. Simple fare, soups and quiches, but great wine and lovely and warm. Looking forward to our next visit.

Well run, quiet, out of the way yet very central in Montreuil. The restaurant was a bit pricey for breakfast at €15 each and the overnight parking is €10 but very limited in space. Reasonable value and every nice staff. Well worth a 30 min high speed walk round the city Ramparts (about 2 miles). Would definitely use again.

Room Tip: 3 bed room nice and large with only one neighboring room

Stayed here for a weekend in October to celebrate my 50th birthday. The hotel is perfectly situated in the middle of the town (which is less than 40 minutes drive from the tunnel). At the back of the hotel in a newly-built block (nice and quiet) where our rooms were. I would imagine that this place is fabulous in the summer as there is a lovely courtyard to sit out in. In the winter the walk from the rooms to the hotel where breakfast is served is a quick run through the rain (and snow unexpectedly) although thoughtfully, there is an umbrella in the sitting area should you get caught out. Breakfast was one of the best I have ever had in a French hotel - fabulous fresh bread (not just baguettes) (there is toaster should you feel the need for toast), fresh croissant, pain au chocolate, fabulous fresh ham and a better cheese boards than most restaurants + all the usual breakfast cereal and fresh fruit salad. The welcome was fabulous and we were really made to feel welcome. There is a small courtyard for parking but don't bother, there is free parking everywhere (look for the white spaces not the blue ones, which are limited for 1.5hrs), Lovely market on Saturday morning and the walk around the ramparts is breathtaking! My one quibble is that the lighting in the sitting area in the new block is on a timer so OK in the evening but too dark to sit and read during the day.

This rather characterless hotel in the main square has everything you might need for a stay of a night or two. The beds are very comfortable and the room is spotless. Breakfast was good but could have been improved by the addition of eggs and a toaster. Reasonable value. Ate in restaurant - nothing special.
