“We just keep coming back...”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

Hard to put my finger on why I love this place. The room we stayed in was pretty small (but had an annexe with bunks for the kiddlings) and was fairly basic. Le Crotoy is a typical northern france town, think the french version of a faded British seaside town. Yet love it I do. We tend to stay here for a couple of nights before a slog south in the summer just to unwind, get into the holiday spirit. It is a great bit of shabby chic with a nice and fairly stylish bar. It has a fairly reasonable restaurant - a bit pricey for France - but it is on site, child friendly, and, hey! We're on holiday!

I wouldn't think it would stand up to scrutiny for a week's holiday but if you are after a short break or part of a longer stay then give it a try.

We stayed for the second time in Les Tourelles.
There are some great things about the hotel:
-magnificent view from the outside: authentic, colourfull
-cosy and familiar bar
-children are welcome
-a big sleeping place for all the kids (up to 16 kids!)
-a wonderfull location
Some disappointments:
-quality of the restaurant, the food in general could be better
-the sanitary may be renewed

I hope this a helpfull review.

This hotel has a lot of history behind it. Having been built over 100 years ago to attract royal visitors it has a certain amount of style. Beautifully restored and delicately upgraded as regards bathrooms, showers etc. you have to expect that some of the rooms are small, most rooms have kept their original shape but have been refurnished and redecorated with sensitivity, So don't expect 21 century chrome but cosy sometimes small clean rooms with some great views over the bay, a really friendly staff and one of the best chefs in the region. With a restaurant, lounges, bar a kids play room and loads of board games and books there is plenty to do on the inevitable wet days, They staff were great and did everything they could to make my 94 year old handicapped mother in law comfortable even adjusting menus.

Room Tip: Book early, the hotel is often full weeks ahead, not all the rooms have a view of the sea but all se...

As a destination for an early fall, weekend, Les Tourelles seems to live up, perfectly, to the hotel guests' expectations for a cosy, relaxing time.

Perched at the tip of the small, fairly unsignificant seaside hamlet of Le Crotoy, Les Tourelles overlooks the tides of the unique Baie de la Somme.

Just a few steps from the water, you can set off from here for long walks alongside the Somme into the nature preserve and the estuary.

The hotel in what, probably, was a century-old, bourgeois summer house, has an unpretentious, local but contemporary, minimal look and feel with its pale pastels, the use lof ight -colored woods and the soft lightning in all the hotel spaces and rooms.

Our room, in soft-whites and light-greys, was quiet, offering the required comfort and a great view of the sea, both from the room and the (immaculate) bathroom (with balcony).

The restaurant serves decent foods (oysters or a fish soup at noon). But, especially the bar and the spacious lounge with sofas and comfortable chairs, welcomes people the whole day long (for coffee, apéritifs, afternoon tea or drinks) - reading, talking and resting up into the late hours.

A nice time!

Over the years, we have visited this part of France many times. Le Crotoy is a fascinating, picturesque and typical French small coastal town. We have had lunch at Les Tourelles on several occasions - this has been excellent; good menu, good food, good service. From time-to-time, we like to spend christmas or new year in northern France - a fairly easy journey from where we live and gets us well away from all the relatives :-) Some weeks ago, we thought it was time to do it again and that Les Tourelles would be a good choice. Despite e-mailing the hotel several times and using the contact form on their website and doing it in French as well English and doing it from several e-mail accounts, just in case one of them was getting blocked, absolutely no response. It totally mystifies me that an apparently excellent small hotel with e-mail and website seems to simply ignore attempts to make contact. We would like to stay there but there are plenty of other choices and I'm not prepared to spend any more time trying to contact them.

We were intrigued after reading the mixed reviews here on Tripadvisor, so we popped in for an aperitif at midday on our way back to our rented apartment. The lounge bar area was large and welcoming, being decorated with taste that went well with the feeling of the building. There were quite a few staff around, but then realised it was because they had a large group coming in for lunch. Still, service for our drinks was good and I loved the wide choice of teas on the drinks menu. Prices were expensive (8€ for a tea and a beer) but this is the norm it seems for the restaurants in Le Crotoy. Worth adding that Le Crotoy for bars and restaurants is very disappointing, so we found this place the nicest be far for a drink.

I've been here before a few times but this time it was with my family including our grandson of 17 months. It could not have been a better choice. The lounge-bar area is perfect for a small child to wander round and explore if the weather is bad (as it was much of the time on this trip). We had a listening device so we could have dinner in the dining room without constantly running up and down to check on him and the signal from the room was good. Because of this we eat in all three nights and the food and wine was excellent. Outside, the sandy play area is lovley for small children and being able to walk down some steps to the beach is a joy.

The rooms were small but comfortable and the whole atmosphere of the hotel exactly to our taste. Only Belgian beer in the bar and some French beer, such as Pelforth, would have been welcome. I think I smell a whiff of Belgain ownership.
