Wanted to break up our journey the night before we took the Eurotunnel and didn't want to stay in Calais so found this gem on tripadvisor! What a find! We read the rave reviews and can only confirm that they are correct - beautiful large house opposite the canal. Extremely welcoming host and a stunning room (spacious, stylish) with a comfortable bed and a great bathroom. Free wifi, coffee/tea making facilities and we parked for free on the quayside opposite. Breakfast was wonderful - fruit, homemade yoghurt, great bread, croissants and a selection of delicious homemade biscuits and jam (which we are still dreaming of!).
Veronique is a charming host and very helpful - she even called around to find us a restaurant in advance.
Location is great - 5 / 10 minute walk to the central square where there is a great choice of restaurants and shops! St Omer is a beautiful spot and we'll definitely be back!
