“Hotel du Centre but there are steps...and steps.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2012

Booked online for this hotel because I knew of it before whilst visiting Wimereux. For 5 euro more we should have chosen a room on the first floor, not the second. The steps up are killers, especially if you've had drinks. Hold on to the railings going up. No lifts. No escalators. We packed light because suitcases and lifting bodies are not fun.

Room was o.k., on the back, clean but the wifi packed up after a while. We looked on the backside of the town but saw seagulls in the distance. Nice people at desk. Oh, there's a cat. Looks nice enough but not that sweet.

Restaurant was old world French with lots of middle class English types. We chose not to eat there because the chandeliers were so bright we would have added 10 years to our visages. No open windows, looked hot and sterile in there.

Nice place though. Shame about the steps. Little patio outside with decking, tables and nice trees. They are trying.

Didn't eat the breakfast. Again, the breakfast room was too bright. Had a few expressos though which were good and strong. All we wanted was croissants anyway.

Room Tip: Get the rooms on the first floor, the ones with the bathtubs. Have a look. Also if you don't lik...

Another great stay at the Hotel du Centre! You really can't beat it for it's typical french charm, comfortable, clean rooms, excellent restaurant and a the price! (Last year we stayed at La Goelette b & b on the seafront - more than twice the price for a room and no way as good as the Centre!) Parking at the rear of the hotel at 4.50 euros a day but worth it for the convenience. I would'nt stay anywhere else! Tip: Good breakfast at the hotel for 9.50euros but if you can only manage coffee & croissant (after a large meal the night before in the restaurant) directly opposite the hotel is a delightful patisserie where you can sit in and have coffee and croissant!

I have been using this hotel on a regular basis for over 25 Years The family owners are a delight and food in the restaurant is fantastic The Mussels in a light Curry Sauce, Fish Soup and Creme Brulee are to Die For

The rooms are constantly being upgraded, I have seen many changes over the Years and I have have tried other hotels in Wimereux when the Du Centre has been fully booked but I am never as happy as when I am at the Du Centre I use it either at the start or the end of trips to Europe as it is handy for the Ferry Ports and Tunnel

Room Tip: Garden facing rooms on the first floor are quieter and most have been upgraded

Lovely hotel in the heart of this seaside town. Had booked a standard room, and were upgraded to the newly refurbished large room instead; with a fantastic wet room with rain shower.

Restaurant is good quality for a decent price, even though it seems to have gotten firmly stuck in the 80's! ;-)

Room Tip: If you get offered one of the rooms at the front - take it. It'll be one of the nicely refurbish...

While this hotel had helpful staff, i just felt that the rooms were a little dated even if they did match the character of the hotel and Winmereux itself. Rooms are large and bedding comfortable, breakfast was the usual varied continental style. Well situated this hotel is fine for a night or 2, however this may be a bit unfair as i am more at home in a more contemporary style of hotel, hence the review i have given.

Conveniently located centrally in Wimereaux. Within short walk of all shops and restaurants and beach. Great restaurant, well priced and lovely staff. Owners and staff incredibly helpful. Good for a night or two. Good for parking.

Room Tip: Front rooms may be noisy if you like to go to bed early or sleep lightly.

We have made several wine trips a year to supermarkets in northern France for about 20 years and our overnight stop of choice is Wimereux, an unspoilt Victorian seaside town. The Hotel du Centre is also unspoilt and is a very reasonably priced hotel full of posh English people who understand value and the very high quality restaurant which is difficult to fault.

The rooms are unexciting but fine, the staff are helpful, the location is good and as said the restaurant is a delight.
