“Will go again”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Went to L'Escale for lunch in the restaurant on a very hot, very busy day on our way home via the channel tunnel after a visit to Belgium.

The restaurant was extremely busy, but we were shown to a relatively quiet table overlooking the garden. Our drinks choices arrived promptly, together with an un-asked-for carafe of tap water, which was very welcome in the heat.

The lady serving us was clearly run off her feet, but she took our order correctly and in due time we were served a sharing platter of beautiful, huge prawns with a lovely sauce, followed by moules/frites, two steaks and a duck confit. It was all totally delicious.

By the time we had finished, the restaurant was starting to empty out, and so our lovely waitress was much less stressed and had time to exchange a bon mot or two with us.

We have been past this restaurant many many times without turning in, and I am sure that now, we will DEFINITELY return.

Very good!

Have recently had our 3rd stay at this hotel. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the breakfast is excellent. The restaurant is extremely good and very reasonable. Good place for a weekend stay in order to visit the surrounding area.

We stopped here for one night and we are so glad we did. We had a very friendly welcome and shown to our lovely room straight away. The room was beautifully presented and beautifully clean. We were very pleased to have such a comfortable room to stay in. The breakfast was superb! Once you have given the waitress your drinks order you are invited to help yourself from a selection of cereal, cheese and meat, you can even boil your own egg! When we returned to our table there was a basket with a selection of toasted bread, croissants and baguette along with butter and jam. It really set us up for the day! We would definitely stay there again! Thank you for a wonderful start to our holiday!

We revisited this hotel after a period of about 10 years - a trip down memeory lane when we used to stay over for the odd weekend. I was very pleased that it had not changed a jot - the hotel is lovely, clean and comfortable and staff helpful. The restaurant over the road is just as good with a fair varitety of choice, and our food was delicious. Well done for not changing!!!!
