“Texas Traveler in France”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

I now know better when using Trip Advisor to look at the reviews to find where the folks come from writing the reviews. When traveling to out of the way places in this part of France I find that most of the reviews are English or European travelers who have totally different expectations from those of us from the United States. For instance nobody noted that this is not an air-conditioned hotel and we had arrived during a very hot period in late May. We could open the windows and we were comfortable but needed to keep the lights off to keep bug free. We did not find this to be a problem and we quite enjoyed our stay but many of our friends would have been unhappy. The lack of air-conditioning and different electrical connections and other minor things may spoil you trip and if these things disturb you look further into the reviews to find other reviews provided by members from the United States.
We got here by driving our car onboard a train near Dover England. It was very easy and it only takes about 30 minutes from loading your car to driving off the train in France. You stay in the car during the trip under the channel and you drive on and off the train with minimum direction. We went through a checkpoint that had a sign to have your passport ready but they waved us through without checking us. Once in France we programmed our destination into a Tom –Tom GPS that we had with us and it gave us English turn-by-turn directions to the hotel. (This is now a must for our Europe adventures) When we checked into the hotel we were taken to a fairly new building next to the hotel (same property) and we were shown our rooms to make sure they were satisfactory which they were.
The rooms were very comfortable, beds were comfortable plenty of room for luggage and hanging clothes, great toilet and bath facility and we were very comfortable more so after the sun went down and we got a nice breeze through the room. We walked into the little village near the Chateau for lunch but ate dinner and breakfast at the Chateau. The meals at the Chateau were high quality meals and are a must do when staying here. Ask for the English menus if you do not speak French.
We highly recommend this Chateau and it was a real treat for us even though it was a little warmer than we liked. Warm room conditions are not avoidable unless you avoid historic properties such as this in summer conditions or go into the big city hotels where business hotels are located.

We have just returned from three nights at the beautiful Hotel Clery! Our stay there was absolutely lovely. The gardens are just stunning, especially at this time of year with everything blooming. It is a very quiet and serene setting.

It never fails to amaze me how family-friendly even very elegant hotels are in Europe. We travelled with another couple who have a toddler and the staff at the hotel was helpful and indulgent. We ate in the fabulous restaurant at the hotel one night and the baby was welcome to dine with us.It was a delicious meal - beautifully presented, well-prepared food.

Our room (#32) was enormous and pretty - a french country motif in blues. The bathroom was huge, equipped with nice fluffy robes and nice toiletries. Spa treatments are available if booked in advance.

Both Le Touquet and Boulogne-sur-Mer are short drives away and easy to get to.

Great stay!!

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.

Wow, what a lovely find. Yes, it may be a little difficult to find on a map (Avenue de Chateau is a big clue) - and even more confusing as the huge sign outside only says, "Hotel Clery" - but this is definitely a chateau, albeit a small one! Certainly, driving through the gates is impressive by any chateau standards. In fact, when asked why it was just called an hotel, they said it was because guests in the past had been disappointed, expecting a chateau to be huge - philistines!

We arrived late Saturday afternoon for a one-night stay and the receptionist was welcoming and very helpful. There is no lift but the stairs are shallow and wide, so no problem whatsoever. We were in Room 107, I think, the last room to the right of the building. Anyway, it was charming, well appointed, clean, bright and comfortable, especially the bed. Because the room has been converted from one much larger room, you could sometimes hear guests in the next room as one wall was a partition and entrance doors are adjacent to each other - but we didn't hear much and certainly weren't disturbed. The room and bathroom (which included luxurious bathrobes) both overlooked the front drive and duck pond, a lovely view.

We spent the evening in Boulogne as we knew the restaurant was pricey but there were certainly quite a number of diners at the hotel and so whether it was because there is nothing else close by or because the food is really good, we really cannot comment. However, returning to the chateau in the dark when it was all lit up made us feel really special! The car park is to the right of the drive behind bushes which means the frontage of the property is not runied by the sight of parked cars everywhere or having engines starting close to the building.

As breakfast was a whopping 17euros per person on top, we skipped this for the croissants we brought with us. However, we did ask for a couple of coffees in our room and these were delivered really quickly, so quick in fact, I didn't have time to get my dressing gown fully on! It was delicious though (and a reasonable 1.5euros each) but meant we could laze about in bed for a little longer before getting dressed.

We checked out mid-morning and decided to walk the grounds before leaving. Possibly they extend to about 10 acres yet made for a pleasant walk, past the new-build (but old-style accommodation block), through the woods, around the rear pond in whose waters the hotel image is reflected (Taj Mahal style) and finally through the courtyard accommodation of possibly former stables and servant quarters. All in all, a wonderful stay and one we hope to repeat again before long.

It was a bit difficult finding the hotel, does not even exist on a map or tom/tom!!! friendly receptionist bless him, couldnt speak much of English but we were able to understand each other as he was talking in French and I was replying in English. room was in the cottage outside the hotel, decoration little bit back-dated, for a deluxe room I expected more, floral decoration did not go well at all. the bathroom was clean but had some weird smell inside in the toilet?? although it was clean, like mould smell, very weird it was, I saw it was clean and we were only staying for a night,if more I would have asked to change the room. noises coming in from above when walking, wood is just too old maybe. Everything else to be honest was nice, we were soo tired we couldn't have a look around the hotel, we booked in the restaurant for dinner, very expensive but was worth it, couldn't do breakfast as it was already 10:30 and been told that check-out is 11 although my booking says 12. paid the bill and when i was back in England I noticed that I was overcharged some dessert which was included in the four course meal of 51 euros!!!

Room Tip: mine was in the seperate cottage outside the hotel, room 31, avoid if you can, floral decoration not...

We stayed at Hotel Clery on our way to a French destination having come through the Tunnel. It was very welcoming. We had a lovely room and the grounds were delightful. The evening meal was good also. We shall certainly use the hotel again if appropriate.

Whenever we return from further afield in France or just take a day trip across the channel we go out of our way to revisit the Clery which is 25 mins from Calais, just outside Boulogne.
This chateau/hotel is absolutely charming and has never let us down. We've never stayed there but we have seen the rooms and they are a good standard. The main attraction for us is the restaurant which serves the most superb cuisine in an absolutely delightful setting - one part of the restaurant overlooks the lovely gardens and is a joy especially in the summer. The food today was quite sublime - amuse bouche, large prawns in batter to follow, then a beautifully succulent chicken dish and a stunning baked apple with brioche to round off a 30euro meal. Quite exceptional. If you visit on a weekday there is a similar set meal including wine for just 18 euro. Well worth a diversion.
