Very comfortable hotel in lovely surroundings. The location is good as it is within easy reach of Calais and is very close to Le Touquet. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a delicious evening meal in the restaurant and there was a good choice of food for breakfast.

A well -situated hotel in the centre of Boulogne. In a pedestrian precinct which can make access tricky. They have a garage nearby which you have to pay for - it is a bit of a tight fit but OK. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms comfortable and well appointed but no tea/coffee ,making facilities.
It is easy to get to the A16 for Eurotunnel but plan your route in advance as the signs only kick in after a few streets.

We know the area having visited on and off over the past 25 years. We went out of season in February as we wanted a short weekend break away from London out of the U.K. that was easy to get to and where getting some good restaurant seafood was possible in the surrounding towns and on the way down from Calais.
If you want sea, sky and aren't too fussed by nightlife, shops and entertainment not being 'on tap' - this is a good base to visit the surrounding area (the coastal resort of Hardelot and the main town of Boulogne are very close). A car is important as your options are increased and, though good from Boulogne, you're then not reliant on public transport.
Although the instructions to get to the apartment read like a Mission Impossible script, they are straightforward once you're there. It was clean, well-furnished and very serviceable: we had a lovely view of the beach from our 2nd floor balcony.
If you happen to like cooking and also don't want to eat out all the time, you might get frustrated with the relatively low tech kitchen and limited utensils/crockery - an oven would be a good addition. But whatever you do, make sure you stop off at the Supermarche before arriving, as shops and grocery stores are very limited in Equihen itself.
Watch out heating-wise: the fire alarm is v sensitive to humidity and as it was cold, we'd had the radiators on and above 21 degrees to keep the apartment nice and cosy; at 4:13am the alarm decided it wanted us to know it existed!

This charming town is France's biggest fishing port, so seafood abounds in its many restaurants. Massive ramparts ring the old town where cobbled streets pass between the cathedral and the old castle. The twice weekly market takes place in the centre of town where other shopping and eating opportunities are plentiful, while the NAUSICAA aquarium provides a welcome distraction for younger visitors.
