The owners of this hotel have gone to considerable trouble to create the 'detective' theme. The decor is fun and interesting and they are clearly passionate about providing a great hotel experience. We enjoyed our stay very much and they were very friendly and helpful.

This is an ideal hotel for a short stay in Etretat. The buffet breakfast was beautifully set out with a good selection of food. The decor in the breakfast room was imaginative and in keeping with the detective theme. The owner was very friendly and spoke good English, although we are quite happy to speak in French. It is only a few minutes' walk to the spectacular 'Falaises' and a wide selection of places to eat. We enjoyed meals in 'La Belle Epoque' and L'Huitriere'. We were in the Arsene Lupin room and had a fascinating visit to 'Le Clos Arsene Lupin' 5 minutes walk from the hotel. We had not heard of this fictional gentleman jewel thief and part-time detective before!
