My wife and I and another couple have just returned from a three night stay at the hotel. It is set in its own wooded grounds with several rooms in the main building the rest in wooden chalets situated about 30 meters from the main entrance. We stayed in adjoining rooms on the first floor of one of these. The rooms were quiet, clean, well furnished, had comfortable beds and separate shower room and WC. There was a TV (all French channels) and, typical of French Hotels, no kettle for tea or coffee.
We were there from Friday until Monday and ate in the restaurant on Friday and Saturday evening and would have used it again but it was closed on Sunday, though the bar was open for drinks. The food was excellent with a good choice, not cheap but good value for money. The breakfast was good too – a classical continental meal. The restaurant has lovely, panoramic views over the surrounding countryside.
The staff were friendly and had reasonably good command of English (certainly much better than our French).
We chose to stay there as it is located close to the channel tunnel (30 minutes) and the motorway (5 minutes), it also makes visiting Ypres (50 minutes) and the war cemeteries easy.
There are two abbeys within easy walking distance (1km) of the hotel though there is not much else in Wisque and St. Omer is about 15 minutes away by car.
If we were in that area of France again we would definitely look at staying here again.
