“Really Very Good”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Stayed here for one night at the end of a touring holiday in France.
Our standard room was elegant, spacious and quiet, with a good size bathroom in art deco style.
Fortunately the weather was warm rather than hot, because we had no air conditioning.
Breakfast was served in one of the function rooms, in what we assumed. Was a temporary arrangement. However this room was very comfortable and the buffet breakfast was excellent, with the exception of the mediocre, stewed coffee.
The staff all seemed pleasant and efficient and the hotel is very well located on the edge of the main shopping and restaurant area, a ten minute walk from the beach.
Recommended.

I was happy with the choice of this hotel, the location was great which is why I think it's so expensive but here is how I rate each part:

Location Perfect, close to restaurants, the main part of Le Touquet and 10/15 minute walk to the beach front.
Food: we only experienced breakfast which was ok, what I had was nice but the choice wasn't extensive, service was good, it was clean and well presented with a good selection of breads.
Spa: I have been to better, we didn't experience treatments but we went down hoping for a steam, sauna and swim, the pool was small and busy, it was raining so this could explain why, the jacuzzi was small and the bubbles temporary but it worked eventually, the sauna didn't work and the front dest of the spa were notified. There was no steam room, so overall a little disappointed.
Rooms: were adequate, comfy isn beds, the pillows were nice but square if you know what I mean so hard to get comfy but overall it was a comfy room.
Bar: we had drinks after we got back from dinner and they were really really nice, lovely setting.
Wii fii was available but none of us could get it working.

Overall I find this hotel over priced for what it is but like previously mentioned I think you pay for the location.

Thank you for taking the time to give feedback on the Westminster Hotel & Spa and your experience.

We are delighted that your stay went smoothly. Regarding the wifi, the connection is available to all our customers during the entire stay. The identifiers need to be filled for each connection so that appliances left without activities do not interfere with the quality of the flow of new active connections.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Kind Regards

Lovely old grand hotel, interesting old features. Friendly staff and good service, although a little impersonal. Parking was great. Sadly we couldn't use the restaurant as there was a wedding on but the food looked lovely. The Spa was a little disappointing with a freezing cold pool. But I would stay there again.

Grand hotel with beautiful nostalgic features - excellent bar, breakfast and interesting pictures around the hotel. Obviously the hotel is old which adds to its charm but we felt the cost was excessive for the room facilities which were just ok and a little tired and there were no tea/coffee making facilities. A little disappointed by the lack of a 'smile' from reception staff but the concierge service was exceptional. Excellent location with beautiful surroundings and views.

Stayed for 5 nights and had a most beautiful room and bathroom. The ambience was so relaxing. Dinner in the hotel was excellent and my dietary requirements were met brilliantly. Staff were very pleasant and extremely helpful. The secure parking was invaluable as the car was full of golf clubs. The hotel is perfectly situated only a few minutes walk away from all amenities. Sadly 5 nights wasn't long enough and we are looking forward to our return.

I organised a small group to have a two day golf break in Le Touquet and we booked the Westminster. The price for double rooms appeared excellent but we would not have wanted to stay very long. The fourth floor rooms are very small and with only small windows were very hot and stuffy. Some have walk in showers but not all and some rooms are even smaller than others.
Having said that we were made very welcome especially by the concierge who is absolutely charming. The hotel has style and real French feel and never resembles an anonymous chain. All the staff were great with a degree of friendliness that is not common in France. Car parking at the rear of the hotel is secure and controlled by electronic gates.
The bar area is super and we had a meal in the Brasserie (Le Cimaises) which was excellent in both quality and value.

Room Tip: Cheaper rooms are small.
