La Goelette at Wimereux proved the ideal place to stop near to Calais after a late-ish Eurotunnel crossing. We didn't want to stay in Calais - too anonymous - but were lucky to find this friendly B & B on the actual seafront at Wimereux, a low-key family resort. Franck let us in late, showed us our very prettily-decorated rooms (we got the lovely Blue room overlooking the sea) and then explained to us how to get to the good local restaurant where, although it was late, they had reserved us a table, and where - via La Goelette's custom - we were given complementary Kirs. The accommodation is not super-comfortable - bathrooms, tiny, showers pretty inadequate - and when will hotels get round to providing feather pillows I wonder? - Also my daughter's bed was full of lumpy springs that kept her awake - but I'd still recommend it for cleanliness, friendliness and sheer charm. The breakfast room is decorated with delightful idiosyncracy, and the view over the sea at low tide on a January morning is incomparable: empty except for dog-walkers. Croissants, pains au chocolats, cured ham, fruit, coffee - all delicious. We would certainly return.
