    The owners are welcoming and helpful. The rooms are nice and clean. The shower room is small but functional. Breakfast very good and plentiful but a bit pricey. We had a good stay at this hotel despite the bad weather. Recommended!

The rooms are of a good size and very clean. The breakfasts buffets are complete and very good. The hotel is in the center of Crotoy and is very well located , just across the harbor and right next to the place with Joan of Arc. In summary, we had a very pleasant stay and we thank the owner for his welcome especially nice and smiling . Would recommend …

    We had a 3 day stay in the Somme Bay . We were made ​​very welcome in this well run hotel. The rooms are clean and standard. The hotel enjoys a good location near the harbor and restaurants. The view of the bay does s applies only to a minority of the rooms and the terrace looks over the road and the car park on the bay itself. However one sy feel good when we are passing through. Also we got good recommendation for activities at the reception. We recommend this address if you want a good weekend in Crotoy !

    If you find a restaurant hotel with spa and business center , go your way . The Hotel de la Somme is a family hotel run by a lovely couple and always fussing over your stay the best possible. The location of the hotel is ideal with harbor views and rooms are enough to make your stay a moment of happiness . This is a simple but where one feels good and where we lack nothing . My parents for over 90 years both felt safe and just like family . Thank you for your hospitality and kindness during our stay. Michel

    3 pleasant days in this hotel . No complaints about this institution with 2 stars and deserve in an extra small . Very warm and very caring staff. Relatively small room, clean and functional. Perfect for a stay of a few days.
    WiFi is free. You can park your car at the hotel for 3 euros per day by receiving a ticket at the hotel reception . Hairdryer available on request at the reception. Breakfast a bit expensive ( 9.5 euros) . We will return .

    Great location in Crotoy . Very good reception with room for breakfast very nice and completely renovated and a full breakfast (bread pastries yogurt fruit charcuterie … ) .

    The family room (for 3) was , by cons , not the most recent with a slightly outdated bathroom. Bedding correct by cons.
    The price / quality ratio is good and I would choose this hotel for another stay at Crotoy !!
