Only a few minutes from the promenade of this small holiday resort with its famous cliffs, this small hotel has a peaceful terrace and garden in which one can enjoy breakfast. The Cosette room is well furnished with TV and good internet access. Jon is a very friendly, amiable and interesting host as well as being a history buff. Etretat... More

Excellent B&B at a very good location in Etretat. The old stone house is a perfect setting and renovated to accomodate all modernities you need. Breakfast on the veranda is a experience in itself. Hosts were very friendly and helpful with tips and ideas.

The customer reserved for 2 nights and gave a credit card number as guarantee. The customer arrived and used the room. The customer left without paying. I charged the customer the agreed upon rate using the credit card. The customer called me and asked me to refund the money or he would write a bad review on TripAdvisor. I refused... More

I would avoid this place at all cost, it was a complete waste of money. Here are the reasons: 1. The owner is only concerned with running his business and making money, he has no respect or care for his guests. He will overcharge you and refuse to refund you in a heartbeat. 2. The rooms are small and not... More

Here is what happened. Friday, 16 May I received a call asking for availability for one night. I said, I do not take one night reservations for the weekends, the minimum stay is 2 nights. I said that if they would like to stay 2 nights, I had a suite with salon available, and I quoted the price. They said,... More

I have spent a week in the Jardin Gorbeau in Etretat and have had a wonderful time. I have found the decoration of the Bed and Breakfast very tasteful, the house is full of art and and the service always attentive and discreet at the same time. The bedrooms are cosy and beautiful. The garden is full of roses and... More

My husband and I stayed at Jon Cooper’s Jardin Gorbeau for 3 days in early August 2013. We had a fantastic time in Etretat during the busy French “vacances” thanks to our peaceful sanctuary in Jon’s garden and guesthouse, a half-block from the beach. Our room was very comfortable, quiet, imaginatively decorated with a lovely view over the garden. The... More

Not only was this lovely area of France a revelation, but so was the discovery of Jardin Gorbeau in Etretat. This very French B&B is totally charming in every respect. From the initial warm and informative welcome by Jon to the quirky but comfortable rooms (or suites as they call them) you are captivated by the relaxing vibe. The location... More

Jon and Ric were excellent hosts. Their hideaway, close to the beach, the cliffs, and the center of the town, is an oasis of calm. The garden is charming. The room was comfortable. Jon's breakfasts featured fabulous, home-made croissants. He guided us to three outstanding restaurants in town and gave us good advice about the surrounding area. He is very... More

It's pretty much what the website promises. Everything is really good quality (rooms, food, information, help). At the same time it's relaxing, quiet and you've got privacy. Close to beach, so very easy to quickly go back home. We loved it and hope to visit again some time!
