This small 'Chateau' style hotel is the perfect retreat for a short break in northern France, a quick hop from Calais and close to idylic coastal walks. The accomodation is spread between three buildings - the original Chateau and stable blocks appear to have more atmoshere, whilst the new build block,100mts away in the Park, looked a little more austere from the outside, on a rainy spring day. Bedrooms are all indivdually furnished, quite often in traditional 'floral', country style and bathrooms are well stocked. My only concern would be that there are no grab handles in the bath, so climbing in and out for the shower is highly dangerous, especially as the bath surface is glossy and very slippery. The hotel does not have walk in showers to any rooms.
The 'public rooms' in the Chateau have retained all their elegant detailing but the furnishings are slightly corporate, with the same 'repro' tub sofa and chair combination appearing throughout the bar and lounges. We dined in the large, airy sun room with superb views of the parkland - more intimate dining rooms were available. The food was quietly superb - a small set menu and a 'special', according to the market, each night. Every detail from the fantastic breads to the lovingly turned vegetables and gently flavoured sauces, had been expertly prepared. A small wine list contains a back page of 'management selection' very reasonably priced international and regional wines along with earlier pages of higher quality Estate wines.
I would suggest looking around for dinner inclusive deals if you wish to stay more than one night. The advertised rates are high but some companies offer 3 for 2 packages at enormously reduced rates. We had breakfast and dinner included in the cost of a luxury room; as breakfast is 17euro and the cheapest set menu is 47euro it was a huge saving.
