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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

I spent 3 nights at the hotel and the view is spectacular! Helpful and friendly service from all the staff even though some of them were not conversant in English and I do not speak French. Only complaint was that there was no aircon in my room and could be too uncomfortable in summer. I left the windows opened and... More
