We stayed for 2 nights in Aug. I made a face to face inquiry after driving past as we had not booked anywhere. We were lucky to get the last room. A "superior" room for 110 euros p/n plus 11 euros p/n for parking (well worth it). Hotel was fine as was room. No tea/coffee making facilities available. It's located... More

We have been coming to France just about every year since 1990. We have seen Monet's paintings of Etretat and have always loved them. We just kept going to other places. WHAT A MISTAKE!!!. We liked the looks of the Ambassadeur and it turned out that were "guessed" right. It is a five minute walk from the bus stop from... More

We found this Hotel an excellent base to stay when we visited Etretat. Close to Centre Ville with all its restaurants and shops as well as the beach and cliff top walks. The facilities were excellent and spotlessly clean with available car parking at additional cost. Would certainly book again if we return to Etretat.

On our way from Amsterdam to Brittany, we wanted a stopover in Normandy. Whereas Etretat is a bit off the highway E44, the small city is cute and the view is great. We decided to stay at the Ambassadeurs hotel, and we got the best room (I suppose), the #8! 2nd floor, balcony, view to the city roofs and the... More

A light and airy room on the second floor provided us with a very reasonable room for one night in Etretat. The bath was very nice and the bed was comfortable. The dining room was also very light and charming. The breakfast was overpriced , however, for what it was, but French breakfasts are usually not much to write home... More

We stayed at the hotel for a night while visiting Etretat to enjoy its amazing views on the beach. The hotel looks old but that's the hole idea it creates some special atmosphere. It gives an impression that you are back in time and it gives you a chance to feel a real spirit of France. Don't expect to have... More

We were allocated the top floor family 'suite '. Having read the reviews I was not surprised at how steep, winding and narrow the stairs up to it were - very tight and the potential for falls is high... The kettle still has to be plugged in on the floor and the decor is very old but ...the views of... More

My wife and I were allocated a room across the street from the main building of the hotel, on the third storey. This room was somewhat inconvenient in that we were given only one set of keys. So if we wanted to do separate things we had to ask the hotel staff to walk over and let us in. It... More

As far as there can be no bad location at Etretat, location was great. No elevator, some historical smell but not too strong, and room was clean with pretty big bathroom, vice view. Very french breakfast, also good.

This is a pretty hotel in a very good location, literally 2 minutes away from the bay. The condition of the hotel (here I can only speak for the common areas and our room) is very good - although the decor is by no means contemporary (why should it be?), it is charming. On the down side, the staff are... More
