We returned to Wissant for a short break after driving through earlier in the year. We spotted Le Vivier and booked specifically to try the seafood restaurant........................It was closed. Very disappointed. We had taken walking shoes to explore the beautiful coastline but the awful weather changed our plans. It was May so didn't expect to be sunbathing. We still think Wissant is a pleasant typically French small town on a lovely part of the coast. The lady on reception spoke no English and although I think this should not be a cause for complaint...(we were in France!) My husband believes that some English should be used on receptions throughout Europe. It did make things a little slower and perhaps we would have understood the reason for the closed restaurant. Everywhere else in Wissant was open and we did find a very nice meal at 'Chez Edwige' just a few minutes walk away. We seemed to be the only guests staying at the time and with hindsight and the ability to speak French we would have asked to be moved from Room 11 - this seemed a little daunting without the language so didn't bother. The reason was that room 11 seems to have escaped the beautiful refurbishment afforded to adjacent rooms. Rooms 12 and 14 were open as unoccupied and were lovely, bright,sunny,brand new shower rooms, lovely design, etc. By comparison our room was shabby and very small. The bathroom was an internal cupboard with no extraction. All of these rooms were the same rate of 80.50euros per night. I will say however our room was clean. Buffet breakfast as you would expect with pleasant service.......(for just the two of us!)
