This is a very stylish and comfortable hotel and the view of the sea and the balcony do add to its appeal. However, it was very expensive compared to other hotels we stayed in on this trip which were at least equally as nice.
The breakfast was very poor indeed. A yogurt, a couple of pieces of baguette and a smear (no exaggeration) of preserve. We had to ask for more jam just to accomodate the bread ration and were made to feel greedy- just one cup of coffee too: no offer to fill up.
No opportunity to make hot drinks in the room, either. In other places we have had this an bottled water too.

The parking is a real issue, actually. You need to be fit.

We had a great room with view of the cliff. The service is phenomenal, the staff is very pleasant and helpful.
The room are clean, modern and the bathrooms are new
No elevator so be prepared! It is Europe and it is the way it is.
The hotel is in an old 'bourgeoise' house like you can on the whole Normandy coast.
The prices of the room are also very reasonable.
we didn't eat breakfast or diner there but it was very inviting....
no parking: I suggest parking at the abandoned train station like we did and leave the car during the stay. You don't need a car in Etretat.... again Europe and a small amount of space for cars.... no big deal

Room Tip: Beachfront rooms are great and if you stay more than one night get one with a balcony you can see th...

Stayed 2 nights when traveling around Normandy.
Booked with Venere
Paid EUR 168.00 for 2 nights without breakfast .
It said Free parking but this was incorrect we had to find our own parking .The receptionist
did help with a map of the area but we had to park a good 20 min walk away.
The room was small but nice , very clean with a comfy bed and a very good shower.
We did not have sea views these rooms were way more expensive .
It was a pain having no lift as hubby was busy parking the car ,and getting the luggage upstairs
was difficult even though the receptionist did help.
Loved the location it was great to be right on the front .
Breakfast was EUR 9.00 each did not think it was that good for the money.
I would return as I liked the location.

Apart from the absence of an elevator, kettle and mini fridge we loved our stay here. This hotel is right on the promenade and perfect for the sound of the ocean and views if you have a seaview room which I did.
The staff seemed to rotate quite a bit and it seemed there was someone different every day, twice a day but in saying that - they were all friendly and helpful. Some spoke English, others didn't and in this case we were able to communicate well enough.

The beds were comfortable, the rooms clean and there was free wifi and breakfast comprising of croissant, baguette, coffee or tea, juice and preserves.

Etretat is a beautiful place with lots to explore and this hotel was perfectly situated for most.

Room Tip: If you are thinking about the top floor prepare yourself for 4 flights of stairs as there is no elev...
