Great Little Hotel, Great Little Town
Posted Feb 19, 2016
We were greated with genuine warmth by the receptionist and the Patronne. They were both very helpful and made our short stay very welcoming and relaxing. The room was clean and functional with a big comfortable bed. The hotel is a melange of period buildings ranging from half-timbered to modern and is built around two charming courtyards that will be very pleasant to sit out in during the warmer months. The bar is in the wooden framed part of the hotel and is very comfortable with a woodburner that is kept well supplied throughout the day, with local beer on tap as well a a good selection of hot drinks. We ate at the attached restaurant both evenings, The menu is commendable limited and the food adventurous, well cooked and presented by attentive but not intrusive staff. The hotel is easy to find and is in the top part of Montreuil-sur-Mer near the main square. The town has a selection of bars and food placed ranging from Kebab shops to modern regional! Montreuil has a long history reflected in its fortifications (there is a rampart walk with amazing views), its architecture and its location as General Haigs HQ from 1916. All in all a good base to explore the almost unknown Sept Vallees, the Coast and the militaryhistory of the area. We shall be going back.
