We stayed for an overnight and 2 wine accompanied meals prepared by the hotel. No problem booking in and staff understood English as well as our attempts at French. Room was good, bathroom excellent but the heating seemed to be turned on full. We examined the air conditioning unit and turned it down,opened a window and had to leave the... More

Clean and comfortable room - very correct service - quiet (even staying in one of the front rooms near the road) - with an excellent 1-star restaurant - within walking distance of the key things to see in Boulogne-sur-Mer

We enjoyed this hotel a lot. The staff is very helpful and friendly. What distinguishes this hotel from others is the food. The restaurant is very good and you can still eat at a reasonable price. Breakfast in the breakfast room is very good as well. Rooms are comfortable and clean. The wellness area is small but well equipped. The... More

Hi everyone, This time my team and I went for an offsite at Boulogne-sur-Mer, famous for its biggest European aquarium. The location of the hotel is about 15 minutes by foot from the center, facing the aquarium. We arrived earlier than expected, in order to avoid traffic jam at Brussels, so we wanted to park the car in the garage.... More

A great little hotel, reception staff very friendly (not a uniform experience in French hotels). We just stayed one night on our way to the Channel Tunnel and it was excellent. They have off road parking, essential in Boulogne, and the slightly strange layout typical of a hotel made out of several different buildings. We had dinner in the restaurant... More

The hotel is sited opposite the famous Nortica - aquarium. The rooms are adequate but on the small side. There is air con but I can't get the room below 20 degrees. Boulogne is about 30 minutes drive from Calais. What make this restaurant stand out is the one Michelin star restaurant inside the hotel. We went for the fish... More

The room was very nice, a bit small though. Bathroom ok. Sauna and hot tub upstairs was ok, although the water was a bit cold. The breakfast was ok, rather basic, no surprises. The bar was very small but with the variety was ok.

The superior room was so small you could not swing a cat in it! The room was on the first floor with a main road in front & a junction at the side which did not make for a quiet resful sleeping environment!! The pictures of the spa are totally misleading. The pool was so small that after two strokes... More
