This was a welcome break on the long drive on the way up through France, before boarding a cross-channel ferry the next day from Calais. I booked through booking.com, and got a large, double, clean room, with big bathroom (bath and shower), with a little balcony overlooking the junction of the two streets for 2 people for €65. It was literally 2 minutes walk to the beach, and restaurants. I think the only down side of this restaurant is the on-street parking - which I should imagine in July and August is a nightmare, but for us was no real problem at all. Breakfast was an extra charge (I think €8, but cannot just remember now). The usual continental breakfast with fresh croissants, lovely bread, jams and great coffee. The owner is very friendly and has a great sense of humour too. He spent some time showing us pictures of the beach kite racing which takes place in Berck sur Mer earlier in the year - the Saudi team all stay at his hotel. We would very much like to see this spectacle next year. Just one slight point - if you are used to the usual US or global hotel chains - all sterilised and antiseptic with no personality, then this hotel will disappoint you. It is a typical French owned, run and decorated hotel, with personality, some faded charm and quirks. We will definitely go again.
