Grand Hotel, slightly unusual building, off the beaten track and circa 50 miles south of Calais. If you are on your way home from the Normandy and Caen region and want to enjoy a last night in France, this is it.
Judging by the historic addenda hanging on the walls of the reception area, this hotel is well known to the Historic Car fraternity. At the time of our overnight, there were a number of exceptional vehicles parked in the village square outside. Presumably various motor clubs use this hotel location as a starting or finishing point for touring activities.
The room we had was big and I'm meaning big by comparison to any other hotel we have stayed in. I reckon the square metres area of that room would equal the ground floor area of my son's cottage. The shower and bathroom are traditional, as is the separate toilet. Huge bed, very comfortable, plenty storage, up to date tv and wifi.
Corridors, stairway and reception areas big enough to drive around in. Bar and separate franchise restaurant welcoming and comfortable, food very good, prices on slight high side of acceptable.
Reception staff very helpful, welcoming and a credit to the hotel. Accommodation prices a bit higher than elsewhere, we didn't mind given the general ambiance.
There are circa 5 Michelin Star restaurants in the small town of Montreuil, quite surprising but maybe they can all make a living in the busy season.
This hotel is part of the Best Western franchise network and we found it using the Sat-Nav. The distance off the motorway will discourage some, but its worth the extra distance.
In summary, a good hotel, not the last word in luxury, but all you will need. It's on our return list, can't be fairer than that. less
