Reviewed 8 June 2014

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.

The hotel lived up to our expectations, with friendly and helpful staff.Three different restaurants are on site offering excellent cuisine in each. Our room and bathroom were spacious and clean.We listened to birdsong, and walking among the many flowers and vegetables in the well kept grounds was delightful. Close to Lille, Ypres and Arras, it was a good area to stay in.

We have visited this hotel many times before and we are always happy to return. If you want a quiet retreat, then this hotel is for you. There is a choice of three restaurants, each one of them is excellent. The chateau was an old monastery and the hotel has been restored and refurbished with very good taste. The hotel restaurant serves gourmet meals in a most beautiful dining room. Jean and Arnelle Constant, who own this hotel, ensure that your every needs are met. The gardens are beautiful and there is now a huge potager, which is fascinating. So well done.

Room Tip: We have always stayed in luxury rooms. Excellent.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. The hotel has 3 restaurants on site : 2 bistro's and an upscale restaurant. We ate in one bistro and the restaurant and both times had a wonderful meal. Our room was spaceous and very clean, the bathroom spaceaous with both bath and shower. The service was impeccable. The hotel is close to many of the cities in North France, including Lille and Lens with the new Louvre Lens museum.

We stopped overnight on the way back from a skiing holiday recently. Very comfortable room and bed. Friendly and helpful staff. Ideal location near the motorway. Excellent meal in La Vasco. We will visit again.

We decided to break our journey home somewhere nice, not too far from Calais; and this appeared to fit the bill. And it did! We were delighted with our choice of place to stay. Quite grand, with lovely service, and very comfortable. We only had breakfast, so can't really comment on the restaurants. (Breakfast was cold buffet, eggs to order on request.)

We're now thinking of an excuse to go and have a weekend break there.

My wife and I and our children have stayed in this hotel at least 10 times and more recently 3 days ago on our way back to the UK. We have never been disappointed. The rooms are very specious, the food is excellent but more importantly the service is impeccable. We have stayed in several luxury hotels before but none comes close to this one in terms of quality of service. The owner knows what very good service means. This hotel is also very friendly for families with very young children (the rooms are so big that people without children are not disturbed). I would highly recommend this hotel.
