After a slow journey through London on a Friday night then a quick hop on the Eurotunnel we arrived at The Westminster at around 10pm on a Friday evening, very very tired. On seeing our room our spirits were immediately revived. We had booked a Privelge room for Euro 190 a night - and it was enormous. The bed was probably 6ft wide, and although it did have sheets was so comfortable - the shutters on the window ensure the room is pitch black. Our room overlooked the parkland at the front of the hotel on the 1st floor. Everything was very good - the bathroom although old fashioned in style was well maintained and very good.
The spa area was a lovely place to relax in the afternoon - though the pool isn't very long if you are a lap swimmer. There is also a nice sauna and a jacuzzi.
I was so inspired by the hotel I wrote a piece on my blog "apd interiors" all about the wonderful restoration.

Ignore the negative reports - we were visiting Le Touquet after a break of 20 years but will be returning to The Westminster very soon
