I can only assume that being in a very good (and quite) location in the lovely town of Le Touquet is what justifies the high prices that this hotel charges. Other than that I have seen nothing to suggest that a stay here is worth the money.

First impressions are that it could do with a lick of paint outside but once inside you are welcomed by friendly and efficient staff and a very clean refurbished interior. I particularly liked the decor in the bar which looked like a wonderful throwback to the 70's.

Our room overlooked the terrace and was clean but a little on the small side. This is where it all goes downhill because at €145.00 per night (not including breakfast!) I would expect large and thick towels, a shower, air-con, tea and coffee making facilities and a hair dryer! The bed was also a bit too hard for me but that may suit some people.

Breakfast was a joke. All I can say is thank goodness we were not there during the high season as it would have been chaotic. Why is it that that a hotel can charge €12 for breakfast and then basically say 'prepare it yourself'? We were not even shown to a table, no assitance on how it all worked, just get amongst the throng and work it for yourself. Okay, the food that I tried was acceptable and you could have gone back as many times as you wanted, but I expect not to have to make my own tea or coffee or queue up for a few minutes to boil an egg! My friends gave up trying to get the hot water machine to work and the coffee was far too strong. Breakfast at the Bristol was a thoroughly unpleasant experience.

Le Touquet itself is a lovely quirky town with some great restaurants and bars and a wonderful beach. There is not much else to do though (unless you play golf) and It is very expensive.

We has a suite (two adjoining rooms -- a twin and a double -- with a separate loo and bathroom) on the 3rd floor. We travelled with our two young children (6 and 4) and the staff were wonderfully helpful, polite and very child-friendly. The rooms have recently been refurbished and the bathrooms have lovely Hansgrohe showers and taps and beautiful polished travertine tiles. The rooms are spacious and the beds very confortable.

There are TVs in the rooms and you will get BBC but you must ask when you book. So ask.

I read Trip Advisor before I booked and it seemed to suggest the breakfast was poor but we found the breakfast excellent: Lovely buttery croissants, a plentiful supply of butter, conserves, Nuttella, different breads (including still-warm baguettes), cheese, ham, prunes, figs, fresh fruit, fruit juice, coffee, boiled eggs and various cereals. We all enjoyed it very much.

The hotel is brilliantly close to the beach and an easy walk to the shops and restaurants. The rooms are comfortable and quiet with really lovely crisp white cotton bedding.. It is also a few steps from the market which we enjoyed on Monday morning.

We loved it and will be booking again for summer.

Room Tip: There are some steps on the third floor but gentle ramps on the first and second floors, just in cas...

Being the fussy guests that we are, we alweays go for the larger 4 star places when visiting Le Toquet, but a couple in the Family struggled on our last trip (Dec 2011) due to Xmas crowds and settled for the Bristol.
It appeared to be run almost single-handed but was extremely friendly and functional. The rooms were clean and large enough without being vast, and of course its very central - you can walk a few yards to all manner of food and entertainment.
If you're visiting Le Touquet but want to keep your heard-earned for the restaurants, you could do a lot worse than the Bristol.

Room Tip: Cant comment as we only saw one!

We stayed a couple of nights at the Bristol in Le Touquet and were pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was. Our room was at the back and we didn't hear a single noise whilst we were there. The room itself was a bit on the small side, but totally adequate for a short stay with all the amenities you need. The bathroom was adequate too, with some free toiletries.
The staff were pleasant and polite and the hotel lounge and bar were quiet and pleasant.
We found the breakfast expensive at €12, so didn't eat there. It is cheaper to eat down the restaurant or even pick up some croissants and have a coffee in one of the nearby cafes.
I'd stay at the Bristol again.

We visit Le Touquet quite often ,two or three times a year and have always stayed on the sea front in either the Ibis or Novetol.We always eat in Matisse (we'd recommend it) and have walked past The Hotel Bristol many times.It looked bright and modern from the outside so we decided to try it out.(It is also cheaper than the Ibis or Novetol).
We were lucky to find a parking place on the road outside the hotel and paid 3 Euros in a meter for an overnight parking ticket.We believe that the hotel also offers a parking ticket scheme covering 24hours parking plus a secure car park behind the hotel bookable in advance.
The hotel itself is grand and has a lift.Our room on the 1st floor was clean with quality bedding and furnishings.The bathroom was modern - no bath but a large walk in shower. The room was cosy,warm and comfortable but a bit noisy as our window opened out onto the courtyard below where the hotel's entrance is situated and lots of people were coming and going.
Breakfast was 12 Euros but as we had to leave early for our shuttle crossing we were unable to sample this.
We enjoyed our brief visit to this hotel and have already booked a return visit in the near future.

We really enjoyed our stay in this Hotel. The rooms were spotless and the general calm and warm nature of the hotel was delightful. Unfortunately our stay was for one night only but we would have loved to stay a few more days. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend!!
