My friend and I dropped our husbands off at the train to return home and we continued on. We were headed to Brugge and needed a stop over on the way from Normandy. I found this hotel on the internet and booked it because of it's location and figured it would be fine for a one night stopover. Well we were so sorry not to stay there longer. The Village is amazing. The views are fantastic and the hotel itself is perched on a cliff overlooking the village and the cliffs. Parking is a bit of a challenge. It was a little stormy when we arrived but we were met immediately and helped with our bags. Our room was very large and well appointed. The decorations are a little bit dated but that's just my opinion. We decided to do the half board because we were tired. The restaurant was full and it's easy to see why. The one thing we noticed was that there are very few english speaking tourists there. The restaurant staff spoke very little english and that was a little hard. We sat next to a swedish couple who spoke english and they helped us with the menu but my friend still got veal parts which she wouldn't eat. We had a wonderful time with the other guests and everyone was very friendly. We were asked how we found Etretat because it's not usually frequented by Americans. I found it to the most charming and "storybook" village that we experienced. The village is clean and beautiful. I think we ended up paying 250 euro with breakfast and dinner for two which was a great value compared to the other places we stayed. Look at the pictures on Tripadvisor and google Etretat. It looks even nicer in person.
The hotel has a beautiful lawn with chairs to look out over the water, Our room had a view of the ocean and the cliffs and we had a balcony. There is a golf club just above the hotel and there were many golfers there. We will go back with our familes: beach, town, golf, walking it's very compact and only about a two hour drive from Paris.
