Good Hotel Guide Review

“Unqualified excellence all round. It is always a delight to stay here.” “The most comfortable of hotels.” Again there is enthusiasm for this 1930s house (Relais & Chateaux), turquoise-shuttered, in a walled garden near the ruined citadel of this medieval hilltop town near Le Touquet. Christian and Lindsay Germain have presided for over 25 years. He earns a Michelin star and three hats in Gault Millau for dishes such as Noix de St Jacques, fine purée de celeri, beurre vinaigre de cidre  and Pigeonneau de Licques et foie gras de canard dans l’esprit d’un Hochepot Flamand. She is responsible for the decor. The bedrooms are liked: “Not too frilly.” “Our delightful room had a balcony facing garden and ramparts, fantastic bathroom with copper ceiling.” The “excellent” breakfast includes “hot loaves and rich jams”. Service, though formal, is friendly. Many residents are British, but French locals patronise the restaurant. “The staff are very good with children” (there is a babysitting service). Azincourt (Agincourt) village (with fine Centre Médiéval) is half an hour”s drive away.

Guest comments

'A delightful English-country-house-style hotel, in an unexceptional small Pas-de-Calais town (but less than an hour from Le Tunnel, and a good base for visiting the war graves). Relatively small but elegant, a venerable old building furnished with taste. Our rooms were spacious, luxuriously equipped, very comfortable. Well-maintained grounds; Queries and changes were handled in excellent English, promptly and courteously. Reception staff were good. The crowning glory was the restaurant: all of our party were were impressed. Not cheap but one of the courses (pan-fried foie gras in a rich consomme) was the best single course I have ever had. Breakfasts did not live up to the promise of the dinner, and service was extremely leisurely ' - Peter Halliwell - October, 2016
'We always start and end our annual journey southward at the Chateau. Although it accomodates vast numbers of Brits it is also a restaurant for local diners and has a refreshing French appeal. Many staff have been there for years. The welcome is warm. Bedrooms are furnished with flair. Menus change with the seasons; meals are skilful renditions of prime raw materials. Breakfast is impeccable. Expensive but great value for money. ' - David Wooff - October, 2011
