Hotel de la Plage
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Wissant
Reviewed 29 October 2012

We have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions now on our wine purchasing forays to Calais. We find it excellent for our needs - the rooms are clean and comfortable but basic and the price €60 per night for a room with a shower reflects that but you can get a really nice meal in their restaurant (speciality locally caught shellfish) for a very reasonable price. We had the €18 menu and had a nice fish terrine, cassoulet and creamy raspberry pudding all of which were excellent. Also there are some very nice walks to be done from the hotel. We have walked both the coast path and done some walks inland where in summer there are wonderful orchids and other flowers to be seen. Staff are friendly and helpful. Only downside this time was that breakfast didn't start til 8.30 and we had a tight time schedule for our boat.

We booked for three nights but after seeing multiple rooms, an unfriendly welcome and confronted with the obligation to pay in advance we decided to stay for just one night. The rooms are tiny with nowhere to sit and dirty carpets. The family rooms are a joke with rates close to eur 100. Breakfast only possible between 8.30 and 9.30. Breakfast itself is reasonable in a nice room. Overall in terms of price quality one of the worst hotels I have ever visited.

Having read some of the other recent reviews for this hotel, I approached my stay with some trepidation. However I was actually not dissapointed and I think some of the reviews are a little unfair.

Trying to park at the hotel was somewhat of a challenge. The hotel has a very small car park which can accommodate 3 cars, other than this its a case of trying to find some nearby on street parking which can be a bit difficult as Wissant is a popular resort.

Check in was straightforward although unusually in France you have to pay for the stay up-front as there are no reception staff on duty in the mornings. Once given the key to the room, its not too far to the rooms although you do have to pass through the main restaurant to get there.

The room itself was pleasant enough overlooking the river next to the hotel although a little small. The rooms don't have televisions or telephones. Not a problem for me as when in France I don't want to be stuck in the room but may be inconvenient for some.

Bed was comfortable enough and bathroom was adequate although not enough space to lie down in the bath ( if you've ever stayed in an Italian Hotel you'll be familiar with this size of bath)

In terms of the restaurant, it was fairly busy and a pleasant experience. The menu is heavy on seafood with only a few meat dishes available. Service was attentive although the wrong drinks and starters were served but this was soon corrected. The wine list is very basic but reasonable value.

Quality of the food was excellent.

All in all, a reasonable hotel and not bad value for money. I wouldn't go out of my way to stay here again unless I wanted to stay in Wissant itself. That's not a bad reflection on the hotel - it's just "average" and nothing outstanding which can probably be said for most hotels to be honest.

Don't let the other reviews put you off, go with an open mind and I think you'll be fine.

Nice and cosy hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Wissant is a very nice balnear little town, with a wild beach. You can have dinner at the hotel.

60 Euros for an old stinky, tiny room, with no tv, fridge and telephone is way too much!!No good ventilation, so if your partner uses a toilet, make sure you open wide the window before he lives...On the same street you can get a nice room for rent for only 34 Euros.Never again!!

Room Tip: Ask for one with window on the see side. Never to the court!!!!

hotel was in a great location, right opposite the beach, with free parking overnight. we only stayed one night, and did not have a pre booked reservation. the room we were given was dark and dinghy, with a rather tired carpet. bed was comfy, bathroom was large but no shower curtain. no complimentary toiletries, only one small hand towel provided. breakfast was charged at additional cost, and was minimal and very little choice. bar was open in the evening, but nobody there to serve you. reception staff friendly enough, and other guests friendly. overall it was an average place but higher than average price. probably would not stay again

Hotel close to Calais and virtually on superb beach. Wissant is a pretty, small town, on the coast. Beach great for kite surfing and other windy pastimes. Old hotel in need of a refurb, but spotlessly clean and friendly. We didn't eat there which was possibly a mistake in retrospect. Breakfast seemed expensive for what it was - one warm croissant, cornflakes and bread I guess the low price reflects the lack of modern facitities. The ensuite was tatty, but clean and functional.
