“Idyllic riverside Auberge close to Dieppe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Close enough to Dieppe for first or last night before making the ferry closing. The Auberge is in a small village and appears to be a amalgamation of several houses, very tastefully up-dated and fitted out in a very appealing style. The restaurant is superb and must be booked in advance as it is very popular with non residents. This auberge was found in the Logis guide. Regret we could only stay one night .

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the garden, which leads down to the river terrace.

If you like to diversify your hotel stays with some country side hotels. This one is a catch. Fair price and a really nice rooms design. Nice continental breakfast. There is a very nice garden with a private stream in it. The whole atmosphere is relaxed and beautiful. Bottom line a catch!!!
It would be made perfect if they added an A/C systems to the rooms, so beware at summertime...

Once again the Clos Normand has excelled itself. The restaurant has been well filled this evening, mainly by English people, which was pleasing.
Everything about tonight's dining experience was first class. My sincere congratulations to dominique and christiane on continuing to present such a first class restaurant and hotel.
This remains the premier establishment in the Dieppe area.

Although I had driven past this place many times over many years, I was rather sceptical that it would be any more than a rather pretentious, past its best, over-priced hotel restaurant like so many others I have been disappointed with.
Saturday lunchtime. We arrived earlier than the 1.30pm booked and were warmly welcomed. The room although rustic and beamy was light and comfortably furnished; pretty porcelain and real linen. The capacity is around 30 covers with space in the garden room for say another 25.The kitchen grill counter forms part of the room and the chef is visible.
The €33 menu started with an amuse-bouche canapé and after ordering, a delicious chilled verrine of a mousse on asparagus cream was presented.
The menu included dishes that are rarely seen on menus these days; the fish of the day for example was Turbot. Calves Sweetbreads with cepes on a pain perdu crouton was generous as a first course and delicious, as was the Cassoulette of fresh scallops with a flavoursome sauce of leeks and mussels. Pan fried Turbot was fresh, simple and perfect; so too was a mouth-watering steak, cooked saignant, served with a small gratin Daupinoise.
Mandarine sorbet with free-poured Napoleon Mandarine liqueur took the place of the more usual apple sorbet with Calvados in these parts and it was just spot-on.
We both ordered an unusual Croustillant of Neufchatel cheese with apple but the crowning glory was a Souffle au Grand Marnier, perfectly executed and feather light to the last spoonful.
Good coffee and petits fours and a wander around the millstream gardens brought to an end our memorable lunch experience.
To be repeated.

Room Tip: Rooms look over a garden bordering a millstream. They appear in need of a makeover from outside, but...

Having traveled around France for nearly forty years I thought that the days of superb French cuisine at bargain prices were gone, I was wrong. We arrived in the snow, so the outside staircase to the rooms was not the best start, but the rooms were warm (like the welcome) and we enjoyed a warming cup of tea with fresh milk collected from reception. A few aperitifs at the local bar opposite the hotel set us up for a fantastic meal at just 30 euros. Couldn't fault any of it. This place has been in Michelin guides for many years and I am not surprised. The rooms are more than adequate, any better and I guess that the prices in the restaurant would shoot up. For me, it's great as it is.

Room Tip: The stairs are difficult, room 11 is directly off the garden and accessible

A rustic auberge, set in attractive surroundings - the restaurant and rooms are set around an extensive garden with a river flowing past, creating an attractive and peaceful setting.

The rooms are spacious, and equipped with tea/coffee making equipment (bring your own milk), the furniture has seen better days, but the bed was comfortable and the duvet and pillows clean and of good quality. The bathroom had been renovated, but there was no hot water in the evening , although it was on tap the next morning (although ran cold whilst filling the bath).

Dinner in the restaurant was excellent, both in terms of the meal (very fresh scallops, generous portions of turbot, cheese and a magnificent Grand Marnier souffle) and terms of value-for-money.

We shall be happy to stay here again when travelling to or from the Channel ports.

A little haphazard but a nice location in the village near the forest. Slightly tired rooms but clean, and good portions of traditional French cooking. Slightly variable wi-fi but they looked after our bikes well. Excellent value overall.
