Hotel de la Baie de Wissant
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Wissant
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 19, 2014

We stayed three nights in this hotel. Rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast is ok. Staff is friendly and helpful. The free private parking is a big plus.
Beachview could be better, you're just looking at cars on the parking. When the parking is empty, you can effectively see the beach. Beachview may not be worth the extra money, depending on what you like.

Room Tip: Room 10 is recommended because it has a great, modern bathroom, the bathrooms in other rooms is a bi...

Stayed for one night after late EuroTunnel crossing before heading off further into France. Wissant was a sleepy village in June with a good range of restaurants. The Hotel de la Baie is right on the beach with private parking. We checked in at 10pm by prior arrangement. The room was clean, modern and had an outside terrace, although I wish I'd booked a sea view terrace as ours was a bit like a pen. Breakfast was good with eggs to boil, oranges to squeeze and a coffee machine as well as the usual breads, ham, cheese etc. The hotel is dog friendly. I would definitely stay again, hopefully for longer to appreciate the peace and beautiful beach.

Room Tip: The rooms with a sea view terrace are able to enjoy the beautiful beach and sea. We had a terrace on...

Nice hotel, clean and modern. Friendly staff.
Breakfast very good - in france you expect no more than a croissant and some bread with jam.. Here breakfast includes eggs, fresh juice, cheese and meats. We like..
If we come back, we would not pay extra for the beach view, because it is mainly a view on their parking lot.. with the beach and sea in the back.. And since all the rooms are on the ground floor..
We paid 115 for the double room, plus 9 euro per breakfast - a bit on the high side.

This is a nice little hotel, right on the beach, just a short walk from the centre of Wissant, a very pretty and typically French village, about 20 minutes drive (but a world away) from Calais.

The rooms are simple, but stylish and spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and I would definitely stay here again.

The only negative really was that we had a phone call from one of the hotel staff whilst we were on the ferry over, asking what time we expected to arrive. This was fair enough, although she then phoned AGAIN, 30 minutes BEFORE the time that we said we would arrive, to ask if we would still be arriving at that time. I have to admit to finding this slightly irritating and would would have preferred it if she had only phoned the once (or even not at all!).

Room Tip: It's well worth paying a little extra for a room on that opens onto the beach.

We booked here only for 1 night as didn't want to contend with the larger centre of Calais. It is tucked away down a French country road but worth it to escape the hustle and bustle and relax on the very very long, secluded and quiet beach.
We arrived late in the evening but had enough time to dash to the bistro down the lane and order take away pizza before it closed and before the hotel desk manager left for the night. We had a lovely big room and bathroom on the main floor with access to the terrace to sit and listen to the quiet and the waves. Drawback is the door doesn't have an outside handle so rigging up a string tied to the insude handle was a challenge = wanted to keep the bugs out. Also the terrace doesn't have any exit but through your patio door so can't access the car park or beach except via the hotel. This door was the only vent for fresh air as there wasn't a screened window so couldn't leave open for security and critter reasons.
We didn't stay for breakfast so can't comment.
All the staff we encountered from the front desk to the cleaners were friendly and helpful.
i wish we had booked more time to stay and enjoy.

Just stayed here for a couple of nights. Great location, right on the beach. Very friendly staff and nice clean room. The place is unmanned between 8pm and 8.00 am, but you can get in with your key during that time.
The big drag is the lack of Internet. You get a code, but it drops out every few seconds and is basically non existent. It gets very frustrating to say the least.

First, the good points. Easy and efficient online reservation procedure. Pleasant (though fussy) welcome. Nice sized room (no 8) with large bathroom. Very comfortable bed; piping hot water; good sea view.

There is private parking - but on the beach and accessible to the world. OK off season, but at busy times one might be a bit anxious.

Now, the down side. The hotel is only manned between 8 am and 8 pm. This was not explained to us on arrival, so when I wanted to pay and leave at 7.15 am there was no one about. At 7.30 two women arrived to prepare the breakfast (which we did not have - so cannot comment on). One told me that I would have to be patient until 8 am. So we packed, loaded the car, left the car park and waited. At 7.55 the same woman sat at the desk and - rather nippily - dealt with the bill.

Had I known about the absence of staff at night, I would have settled up on arrival.

Room Tip: Ground floor with sea view - nos 5 to 8 seem best.
