We stayed here on spec, as it had not been written up before on TripAdvisor. It is right on the quiet front but you have to pay to park outside - luckily if you overpay one day, it carries on to the next day, saving you having to run downstairs early on to prevent a fine. There are plenty of other restaurants, fish shops etc a minute's walk away. Le Crotoy has more of an old fashioned feel to it, than the manmade resorts further north and south like Le Touquet, Berck-Plage and Le Treport, etc
We found the staff friendly and helpful, especially to "rosbifs" whose French is not brilliant. Bedrooms are on the top floor above the first floor (summer only?) restaurant, so if you have heavy cases, or are elderly, this hotel is not for you.
Lovely views from our compact but stylish bedroom over the estuary and salt flats - take your binoculars! Room was clean with flat screen TV, ensuite etc.
We dined in the restaurant which was excellent, and it was nice to see the restaurant busy on a weekday lunchtime out of season as we checked in. Their website gives more details. The room was 68 Euros which is quite reasonable and breakfast a cheap 6 Euros, but the latter is pretty basic : fruit juice - no choice, french bread, croissants, tea or coffee.
Their website only shows 3 rooms, so probably booking ahead is wise.
Strongly recommended by us demanding wrinklies!
