“Awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013 via mobile

The worst hotel I've ever been! The room was small and smelt of the food being cooked in the kitchen downstairs. In the bathroom the fan was mouldy and the room was generally dusty. The bed was very short, even for small Italians, and noisy. There was supposed to be wi-fi and 80 channels on tv... Big lies! It was advertised to be an English speaking place... Other lie! The service was poor and the staff nasty! Don't go there unless the only other chance is sleeping on a public bench!!!

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

We ate here because the restaurant we had previously identified on Tripadvisor was closed. It was simply appalling. Do not eat here. For a 13.90 euros formula we were served a savoury pancake with cheese, ham and egg. The pancake was clearly pre-cooked, probably bought in bulk, folded over the filling and heated, probably in a microwave. It was totally without flavour, like eating plastic. The sweet pancake which followed was just another pre-cooked slab of batter, folded over raw sugar. The small frilly pieces of crepe around the edges showed clearly the pancake had been stamped out in an industrial process. The formula was completed by a small cup of cider. A complete and utter rip-off. Etretat should be ashamed of this tourist trap.
