Had a lovely overnight stay, couldn't fault the hotel or owners in any way. Room was very clean, heating was on and the room lovely and warm on arrival. Hotel owners gave us a lovely welcome and the evening meal was extremely nice, if a little bit more than we expected to pay. Communal rooms were beautiful to be in. Overall a very good experience and would recommend.

Pleasant enoughPosted Sep 7, 2013
Pros: Garden and general outlook
Cons: Food in general and also warmth of welcome
Rooms were comfortable but the food fell short of expectations on several counts. Dinner was strictly average and the breakfast was not up to standard with no croissants available. Unlikely to make a repeat visit to this hotel.

Converted country farmPosted Jul 14, 2013
Pros: Dinner and location
Cons: No A/C
Location: On the edge of a village
Located in the countryside, converted farm with beautiful gardens. Accomodation could do with some updating but room was clean and comfortable. Evening meal at 29 euros was excellent and one of the best we had during a 10 day trip. Breakfast was probably the best of the trip. Family run business, no one spoke English but everyone was very kind and friendly. Will use this again if I need to stay close to Calais.

Rural retreat close to the RunnelPosted May 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
Picked this hotel as we wanted to be in the countryside but with 20-30minutes of Boulogne and the sea. Stayed 2 nights and ate in the restaurant both evenings. Comfortable and clean rooms and reasonable choice of food. Buffet breakfast costs extra but is good value if you have a hearty appetite. Only negative was the small size of the TV in the room. Lovely gardens made up for it.

Rural, Quiet and RelaxingPosted Nov 2, 2012 on Hotels.com
Our stay was just what was needed, a chance to recharge our batteries in a relaxing and yet interesting location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 'Ferme de la Raterie'. Our hosts were very welcoming and interesting to talk to. The breakfast table provided a substancial start to the days with a wide range of food and beverages. The evening meal we had in the restaurant, on one of the nights of our stay, was superb. The hotel's location was ideal for our site seeing visits to Boulogne, Le Touquet, Montreuil, Wimereaux and of course was nicely placed for Calais. It is a place we will look to return to, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Beautiful setting and very relaxingPosted Aug 28, 2012
Pros: Lovely family room lots of space and separate bedrooms perfect after a long drive.
Cons: With 2 young children we went to our room earlyevening to watch tv which had a list of english chanels non of them were working very disappointing.
Location: Beautiful location not easy to find
Beautiful location and very impressive building. We had a delicious 3 course meal our french is not brilliant so had some difficulty in understanding staff. Not the cheapest but very french traditional. Our family room was a one off usually we squeeze into one room like a dormatory. There was a twin bed room for the children with their own tv and and we had a king size bed also with a tv very relaxing after a long drive. There was a list of tv chanels in both rooms listing BBC one, two, three and four also CBBC and Disney. After our evening meal we went to the room early to watch tv but was very disappointed that none of the BBC or children's chanels were working. We could only watch French tv or dubbed english programmes.

Language barrierPosted Aug 28, 2012 on Hotels.com
The place was beautiful and we chose it as it was said to be multilingual, well this was not the case and English didn't seemed to be welcomed. Even my school French was not tried to be understood. Charges for everything even wifi and notices up to state no food or drink could be consumed unless purchased from there was very off putting and made us feel like naughty school children should we ever consider to do so. I asked for " un bouteille de vin rouge"( which even in my school French means a bottle of red wine) and got two glasses of port which cost more than a decent bottle of wine in a restaurant!. The tv in the room was advertised as having British programmes, well only French and German were catered for! The hotel would have been a pleasant stay if we had felt more welcomed like the French couple who booked in at the same time .

Spoiled by the restaurant being closedPosted May 18, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel is very pretty and the location is nice. The selection at breakfast is impressive. However the stay was ruined for us by the restaurant being closed for "technical reasons". It was my birthday and I had been looking forward to a lovely meal. There was no where else to eat within walking distance and as we were travelling by motorbike, it was not possible to travel elsewhere (and be sufficiently presentable to have a nice meal). This was worsened by the staff not apologising for the restaurant being closed - even the following morning when I said how disappointed we had been.

Unfortunately the restaurant was closed due to a techical problem. There was no bar or facilities to have a drink, tea or coffee. No bar. Breakfast was very good.
