The room was little, but lovely arranged. The breakfast was delicately, for everybodies savour something. Even a watercooker to help yourself with free coffee or tea was available at any time. The service was excellent, English speaking and very attentive. Good hints for parking, eating outside and a friendly face everytime.

Booked this hotel as it is part of the Contact hotel arrangement of independent hoteliers. Good value and a good location for the port and beach and lots of restaurants. Easy to park nearby. Friendly and obliging owners. Small room which was fine for our one night stay but I wouldn't want to stay longer. Clean and comfortable. Decent size... More

Been coming to this Hotel for the past ten years for one to three night stays.

I Stayed here on 15/16th May 2013 as a stopover when touring on a motorcycle this year. I found the management to be most helpful and yet more so I found the staff (Sabrina)to me highly professional and very personable. The breakfast is excellent and this is close to all amenities and the port. Recommended

We needed an affordable stay for one night and this was a solid choice. Good location and a clean (if tiny) room. We were in #19, which had a double bed and little room for anything else. One had to climb across the bed to open the window, which looked out onto a main street for a lovely breeze. Many... More

Only stayed one night but wish it could have been more. Le Petit Vatel Is as its name suggests - "Petit". But the cleanliness, attention to detail, and the friendliness of the staff is anything but small. The continental breakfast was excellent - French coffee is usually good but this was better than good - and coming from an ardent... More

Used the new crossing to Le Havre from Newhaven and stayed two nights at the hotel. Very good location. Walking distance from other hotels, restaurants,bars, shopping in the town. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast extra, but worth it at 7 euros each. Cost was £43 each night per room, and the room had two double beds in.... More

Breakfast was also available and was also excellent. The owners are very polite and friendly but English is limited. Very much recommended... More
