I had chosen my little hotel and the seaside village of Etretat very well. The hotel was half way up one of the cliffs and provided wonderful views across the cove and out to sea both from my room and the garden below. It was all so very French with the majority of tourists French. I expected to see Monsieur...

- Our stay at the Dormy House was really wonderful. Our room was cosy and had a marvellous view on the cliffs of Etretat... spectacular! Room was comfortable in a very traditional style (could be considered as a bit old-fashioned by some, but we liked the 'vintage' touch it has). - The restaurant is excellent : lovely french gastronomy and...

Very impressive hotel. Beautiful location. Comfortable rooms and eating areas. Though not for the budget traveler. The food is good for dinner, but very pricey. The room was clean except for the air vent above the bathroom sink...covered in thick layer of dust. Also, I found pubic hairs floating in the bathtub when I began to fill it...hmmm. Kinda nasty.

Prettily situated to afford views of the sea, the famous cliffs, and the little resort town of Etretat the somewhat oddly named Hotel Dormy House is pleasant and old fashioned. A pathway leas either to the cliffs or to the town, the gardens are well maintained, and there is a restaurant. I ate my meals elsewhere, but the menu looked...

We booked a room with a balcony and a sea view - definitely worth the extra money. The cliffs are lit up at night and Etretat is such a lovely small town. As other reviewers have said it is a short walk down the path from the hotel into town and there are lovely walks along the beach and up...

We booked a room with views of the cliffs and a balcony. It was worth every penny. The views are spectacular. The hotel staff were pleasant and although most did not speak English, they were able to get answers from their associates that did speak English. The restaurant also has fantastic views and the food was excellent. If you booked...

Even off season during the week this place is busy in a nice way. Dinner in the panoramic restaurant is a highlight, the blonde head waitress makes time to talk to her clientele. Very charming. Celebrated birthday there and are extremely happy with our choice.

The views of the Cliffs of Etretat from our room were incredible and well worth the extra cost. The room and bathroom were large and very clean. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel. 15€ seemed a little expensive when there are many restaurants in the village at the bottom of the hill.

Recently stayed at Hotel Dormy House in Etretat and felt like I was in a story book. The location is perfect with an amazing view and access to the cliff hikes, yet 2 minutes from town for restaurants and other outlets. The entire staff was very kind and friendly with excellent English speaking skills. Vanessa at the front desk was...
