If I hadn't paid a deposit we wouldn't have even stayed one night.
This was to be the highlight of our trip - the 'exquisite' old hotel on the beach with a renowned seafood restaurant. We arrived at Wissant and parked opposite the hotel. We had trouble finding the reception. When we did find it, the door was locked! When we were admitted we were led into a dim, damp room with tatty ageing furniture. We were shown to our room which was clean but very bare and basic though the price was more than better hotels we'd already stayed at, but access was up a narrow bendy staircase that probably had been the old servants' access - the walls were all scuffed where luggage had been carried up. We asked if there were other stairs and were told 'No' (we later found two other staircases - one which seemed to go down to a locked lobby and another that descended into a dark area in the vicinity of the reception!) We asked about the hotel parking and were told to leave our car out in the street because the access to the courtyard was tight and the locked the gate mid evening.
No bedside tables, the bedside lights were wall mounted so high we had to get out of bed to switch them on and off. The main lighting was two spots in the ceiling one of which didn't work and the other flickered on and off.The ad promised a comfortable lounge with an open fire - we never found it! We did find a posh dining area which we thought was the breakfast room but that turned out to be part of the restaurant which was curtained off.
Breakfast was extra and either we had it every day or not at all.
AND they wanted paying in full up front because reception is only open between 2 and 8 so would be closed when we checked out.
Such a pity - with a little thought it could be a really fabulous place to stay.
