“Wonderful - again!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

As they say in France, fantastic "rapport qualite/prix"! This is why one used to come to France - a warm welcome, wonderful food, and slightly quirky rooms! NOT for those seeking a "wellness centre", fitness room or gym, but as a base for a trip to the Pas de Calais, or as overnight stop before or after a channel crossing, this is La Belle France at its best!

Room Tip: We have stayed in the same room both times we have visited. It is quiet, clean, and everything works...

The hotel is easily located and is close to the main arterial coast roads and channel crossings. It is a great base for touring the area around Calais and Boulogne. This is a family hotel and it is in many ways a typical French provincial hotel. If you are expecting all the mod cons of modern hotels, please don’t go. It is unfair on them and unfair on you. This is a very pleasant comfortable and inexpensive country hotel but it has all the basics. It has TV, en-suite bathrooms or showers and comfortable rooms. It is clean, well-managed and with very friendly and helpful owners who, together with their staff, work like Trojans to look after you.

Where this place scores is on its food. It is of superb quality and they have good changing menu, all of which is inexpensive and you can wash it down with some of the well-chosen range of inexpensive wines on offer. There is plenty of free parking and gardens at the rear and I fully intend to return here again the summer. I suspect that the food here is so good that the restaurant can get busy but there is plenty of space in the very elegant restaurant. A great place to stay overnight en-route or for a short break and , of course, the good old booze cruise.

Room Tip: If you want a bath - ask when booking. Not all rooms have them.

Easy to find from all channel ports and tunnel, excellent stop over en route or for longer stays to explore local area. Food five star. Good presentation excellent quality. Rooms spacious, quiet, and very clean. Dogs made very welcome. Lots of safe on site parking and large gardens and terrace for sunny days. UK TV for those who miss home! Highly recommended. Owners speak good English for people with little or no French. At least our twentieth stay here at all times of the year, so that speaks volumes.

We booked this hotel as a convenient base for a little exploring of the Pas de Calais & for its proximity to the Tunnel terminal. From our research we were a little unsure as to what we would find.
We found a gem that, like many precious stones, will not be loved by everyone but will be treasured by many.
There is hint of timeless faded elegance about the place as a whole - more obvious in the original house where the more interesting rooms are - which belies the effort recently gone into restoring its past reputation. The staff - especially 'madame' - were exceptional but in the way of a being at a best friend's house rather than a hotel. The food was excellent with well balanced complete menus which can be interchanged, some interesting a la carte options & a good wine list.
Our room was in a newer wing and was a good size with a nice bathroom - the bed was a little small (standard double) and firm for our taste but not unreasonable
Pre and post dinner drinks and chat in front of a large open fire in the lounge area were a highlight of a very pleasant couple of days. This is a place we will return to.

Room Tip: The rooms in the original house have more character but all are very reasonable

Yes, we were back again after a very long four months, and I'm pleased to report that all is well at the Tourelles.
Two nights this time around and two wonderful meals, the last of which probably ranks as one of the best ever.
With Nadege and Guillaume's lovely children about the place (but not obtrusively so), it really is like staying with friends rather than at a hotel.
They were busy preparing for a full restaurant for Sunday lunch as we left.
I hope it's not four months before we return. That's just too long.

I have stayed at this hotel many times with my husband and dog. We are always warmly welcomed, and enjoy a spacious room and a pleasant bathroom.

The food is excellent and beautifully served.

To be thoroughly recommended, especially for the night before or after using the Channel Tunnel. A really good stop over.
