I had expected great things from this hotel - although I hadn't thought the website was particularly well-designed - especially as most of the reviews were positive. However, on arrival, the poor receptionist was obliged to carry our suitcases as there was no porter and our room was on the top (second) floor with no lift. We did offer to carry our own cases but she insisted and so our initial impression was not a particularly good one. The decor of our room was delightful but the facilities were somewhat inferior given the price/rating of the hotel. For example, there were no tea/coffee making facilities; only a hand-held shower in the bath; no magnifying mirror; no shower cap; no hair conditioner - these things may not seem important to everyone but we've certainly had all of these in much cheaper hotels. In its favour though the hotel was in a lovely setting - the grounds and the vegetable/flower/herb garden were delightful - and the staff were friendly enough. The chef wasn't very happy when he discovered that we hadn't eaten in any of his restaurants but we had been out and about all day and it hadn't been convenient to come back to the hotel early enough for dinner. However, we were also partly swayed by the fanciness of the menus, when we were happier to stay in town for "moules et frites"!! The hotel is also situated a very easy drive from Calais and very convenient for visiting the towns and sites connected with WWI which had been the reason for our trip.
