“Basic hotel but very good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Lovely seaside town about 30 minutes drive south from Calais. It was ideal for us to stay over the night before returning to the UK. The hotel is on a busy street but the double glazing kept most of the noise out. Would not I think be good in very hot weather. And the bar opposite had very loud karaoke until past midnight. The room was basic but reasonably comfortable for one night. The manager and his family were great - so helpful looking up information for us. The restaurant surpassed the hotel - food was great both in the evening and breakfast. One very rude waiter who obviously did not like any foreigners and pretended not to understand anything at all that was said to him. It is what it is - a convenient stop with private car parking close to Calais.

I chose the hotel as a one night stop at the end of a holiday in France as a convenient place for the Eurotunnel. It was central (good for restaurants) and had private parking which was a bonus as the car was laden with Champagne and other expensive goodies.

The room (no.29) over looked the front street and had a small corner bath and sink in one area and a loo in another. The loo smelt of stale urine was was just big enough to do what you have to do with no ventilation and no sink!!

The flooring throughout the bedroom was plastic and there was not a single picture on the wall nor any form of decoration other than a few cushion on a sofa. Soulless doesn't begin to describe it.

I had requested a twin room for myself and female friend and the host was adamant the room was a twin, despite two single beds being pushed together with a shared duvet.

Breakfast was serve yourself to coffee from an urn, croissants, bread, cereal (I am gluten free and had advised the hotel in advance) sliced cheese and ham, which were not appetising. It was poor compared to other breakfasts in France and at 9 euros, the cafe opposite would have been a better option.

I wouldn't stay again or recommend it. The private parking wasn't worth the 89 Euro price.

There was a restaurant which seemed popular although we didn't eat there.

Room Tip: ask questions before you book so you aren't disappointed

Central location on main street - very busy in the day but quiet at night. The front bedroom was too small and the rubber sheet was not conducive to a good nights sleep. Moreover, the drains are due for an overhaul as our bathroom was smelly.
The Food was excellent, wonderful fish, freshly cooked.
We knew about the car park at the rear and found this without difficulty.
The absence of an elevator means that we shall not return, as the staircase is not "shallow" as the proprietor pretends.

Room Tip: Getting the rubber sheet removed would be a good start!

Stayed here one night en route to Normandie, could really do with an elevator!!!
Rooms were basic and dated, but nice and clean. Got attacked by mosquitos all night but hardly the hotels fault!
Breakfast was basic but nice.
The courtyard is a beautiful spot to relax.

We enjoyed a very pleasant quiet room facing the rear car park. The front rooms would be noisy facing the road traffic. Check where the car park is, as you need to turn off the main street and we did not see any signs. The main street parking spaces were full. Traffic was very busy!
Plenty of car parking space which is a difficulty in Wimeraux!
We enjoyed a pleasant meal in the very popular restaurant.
No air con .

Room Tip: Choose a room at the rear facing the car park.
