This hotel is situated on the Fecamp harbor, but is surprisingly quiet. I was expecting something a bit ugly, given the modern front. However, I was pleasantly surprised.
Room with a harbor view had large windows with a wee balcony. As the sea gulls had done their business since the last occupant left, we asked that the window be cleaned, which was done quickly, with an apology and a smile.
The room was spacious; two very comfortable chairs looking out to the harbor, and the bed was super comfortable. Flat screen TV is situated to be viewed from the bed, but I have to admit, we never even turned it on. Great linens, and in good supply, although for E165, it would have been nice to have bathrobes supplied. Free wifi from this room (third floor at end of hall) the reception was not super fast, but adequate, and I always appreciate the "free-ness"
Large bathroom with double sinks and the toilet in a separate area, always a boon for people traveling together.
It was quiet and well insurlated from outside noise (it is after all a in the Relais of Silence") but we did hear a bit a child's running from the room above in the evening, and some voices from the room next door in the morning...It was not really disturbing to us, but I could possibly imagine that if you had neighbors partying into the night, that you would have to rely on the staff to deal with it..
Staff was very friendly, and helpful. There is a charge to park in the garage, but there is a public parking lot around the corner in back, and at least on a fine weekend at the end of March easy to park. I imagine that is not the case at all in the heighth of summer as you are not far at all from the (pebbley) beach.
No report on breakfast -- we were happy to pop down to the boulangerie, and bring back croissants and coffee to eat while we prepared the day's adventures: 5 Euros for two instead of 30 for a full brekafast -- I'd rather save my money for a great lunch....
All in all, it was expensive; but you pay for the view and get a large, very comfortable room, and competent and friendly staff...
