Wissant as a town at the back end of the holiday season has a surreal air to it and the Bellevue continues that theme. There is a faded grandeur to the hotel but it makes a more than adequate overnight stop. The room we had was small but very clean with a reasonably comfortable bed. The en-suite however was a bad joke.....although clean it was clearly in need of refurbishment with some fibre board panels starting to swell and fall apart (in a bathroom? no wonder). There was a half bath with a shower which simply had not been thought out at all. The bath had a slope at one end so you could sit in it but that meant if you wanted to use the shower (the only way you could clean your whole body) you had to stand on the sloping part.(We both managed it but very dangerous for anyone unsteady on their feet etc).Also the taps were on the side nearest the shower curtain which meant they drenched the curtain constantly, so inevitably it was mouldy. Also with the toilet virtually under the handbasin you had to be a contortionist to use it. Certainly a challenge doing 'the paperwork' afterwards!
Really needs to be thought out properly!
However we found staff to be friendly and helpful for example opening the bar up so we could have a late night coffee.
One other that let the place down was the dim or just safety lighting on the staircase...why? surely the budget cant be that tight can it?
In conclusion though a good location to stop a few mins from Calais and an adequate stopover
***********Now my one-man protest which I add to most European hotels...why cant you get up to speed and provide coffee/tea making facilities like nearly every hotel etc. in the UK and US?...you really are behind the times on this one*******
