Lovely room and the lap of luxury after our spartan hotel in Paris (no wi-fi, TV) and artistic surroundings was much appreciated. The staff very helpful. The breakfast in the solarium surrounded by geraniums was a delight. The weather was not good so we did little of the exploring in the seaport but let our imagination shine sun on the boats and narrow houses at the heart of town. Will come again, I hope.

Easy to find in the surrounding narrow streets of Honfleur. A friendly welcome from a gentleman of 'some years' experience, in a room full of wonderful French antiques. So different from modern hotels.
The gardens are beautifully tended, as is the lovely pool and surrounding area. Our room was right at the top of the hotel, but we were given some expert help with all our luggage by a young member of staff.
This hotel may not be the first choice for many, as it has a few imperfections in the way of some peeling paint and shabby decoration. But for a glimpse into the old France, it is quite unique and I would recommend it and return myself anytime!
Full marks for a safe and secure car park.

Previous reviews are accurate - Ecrin is an interesting old building with interesting old items and secure off-street parking. The service is good and it is just a 2 minute walk from the harbour.
The town itself has many restaurants, art galleries and some bars.
Recommended.

We booked at the last minute over a public holiday week and so were very lucky to find a room in such a pleasant hotel. The public areas are great, full of atmosphere of an old well to do port house. The pool area is particularly pleasant as are the gardens. Parking is easy and secure in a town of narrow streets and small hotels. Our room was rather dated, but spacious and clean. The staff were very accommodating and especially eager to do anything for our daughter who is almost two. The price is not cheap, but represents reasonable value in a fantastic town like Honfleur. We chose to have breakfast on the harbour rather than the hotel, so I couldn't comment on it. I would happily recommend this place.

We wanted to stay in Honfleur for one night on our way to Brittany. I wanted somewhere close to the town centre but with good off street parking which is why we chose this hotel. It was a good decision because it is a great hotel. We were immediately made welcome by the owner and his assistant, Nam. The hotel is well run, is full of fascinating objects, has a great location and provides an excellent breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to go back again.

The owner of this Hotel is a collector! Things from all over the world adorn the main rooms although not in ones own accommodation . Stuff just everywhere but not in an overpowering way- just fascinating.
We had a suite which was spacious and comfortable plus very clean.
The pool area was well looked after and spotless.
Location excellent- short walk to the harbour.
Would definitely recommend staying here.

This hotel is a real gem. It is only 5 minutes from the old port and excellent restaurants. The rooms are large and cool, the pool is excellent and there is ample free parking. the building is decorated and furnished as it would have been 100 years ago but beautifully looked after. Don't be concerned that it is only a 3 star officially, it's a 5 star experience.
