Overview

A stay at a romantic château a short drive from Calais, with a wine cellar visit and optional dinner

The Lowdown

Combining the best of French grandeur, rustic charm and modern facilities, Château de Cocove is a restored 18th-century castle surrounded by rolling hills and wooded park. Just 20 minutes from Calais by car, its convenience has little impact on the tucked-away feel of the castle, set near the Regional National Park and not too far from the coast either.
Untouched by the wars, the sweeping exterior keeps its original style, fitting with the antique feel throughout the building. Rooms are furnished to a good standard, while maintaining long-lived touches. The hotel’s contemporary facilities – like Wi-Fi and the organic restaurant – make it perfect for both stopovers and longer breaks.
The highlight of any French visit is its gastronomy and Château de Cocove prides itself on its culinary offerings. Its fine dining restaurant offers locally sourced delicacies, like foie gras and organic beef, but the wine and champagne cellar are its biggest draw, with a well-chosen range to tantalise noses and taste buds. The hotel sports a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Charming stop over
Reviewed 4 days ago

This Hotel is in a beautiful setting with an excellent restaurant,The rooms are clean and comfotable with a little flare in the decor, however it is run more like a chamber D'hote as usually there is only 2 staff on duty front of house for the restaurant, bar and reception, and one often has to seek them out, however we love this hotel and plan to stay again when travelling in France.
The breakfast Buffet is excellent and Dinner is a treat of flavours

Very disappointed
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Have stayed here before and cannot believe how much it has gone downhill. Prices gave increased and service decreased. Room was small (double). TV could not access English programme apart from Sky News but that kept going off due to the internet speed being below 2.0. Breakfast. Available to 10.00am but at 9.20 no eggs, bacon or croissants and toaster rubbish so only available was bread, fruit, jam and coffee and they wanted to charge 16 euros. I refused but had to pay 10 euros for coffee and bread !!! How They claim 4 star is beyond me and I will never stay again and I suggest that anyone contemplating staying DONT. Stay at Chateau Tilques instead - it's great.

We loved staying here - the rooms were great (although bathrooms small and we had to change rooms to get a bath - and the bath was difficult to get out of as one side had no top surface). The staff were very friendly - the food was great. Not the cheapest place but we greatly enjoyed our short stay (bar the fact that the English TV channels did not work - even after asking it to be fixed!). Very peaceful in a parkland setting.

best sleep

we got stranded in Calais but choose this hotel because other trip adviser clients said best nights sleep and they were correct. Note to those travelling with dogs requiring twin beds the rooms are tiny. They said even the double was the same size. They have very nice shampoo soap and toothbrush but NO BODY nor Conditioner products
The we coud ony eat in the bar but the food was beautifully plated and tasted fabulous. The breakfast is 16 euro pp for basically scrambled eggs and continental .

Very refined food, but really poor service
Reviewed 1 month ago

We were here for one night and looking forward to a great meal, based on previous reviews. The food was creative and very well executed, but the service was shockingly neglectful. Dirty dishes not cleared after 15 minutes (we eventually put them on the next table, where they sat for another 15 minutes before being cleared). Had to chase the wait staff to top up drinks multiple times, etc. All “first world problems”, I know, but at these prices you expect better.
