The Mystery of the hotel The chairs were comfortable well be the most welcoming host, a vague apprehension pincer visitors who took the risk to book a room at Hotel Detective . Dim light , dark corridors and creaking floors . Wall , a steel plate shredded shot rocket launcher sets the tone in a setting worthy of a film noir. The country of Arsene Lupin , the ghosts lurking . Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes Charlie 's Angels Ladies, all the great names of literature the crime series have left here trace of their passage and even hidden in some room some bumps and smaller surveys that must be resolved before you can rest soundly . So open the eye and play finesse ! And needless to slip away , the handcuffs are never far away and the boss is an old fingerprint expert of the Institute of Criminal Research of the National Gendarmerie .

We were only in Etretat overnight but enjoyed our stay at the Detective. We had the Miss Marple room which was charmingly decorated albeit small. The concierge (she may be the owner, not sure) insisted on carrying my suitcase up the two flights of stairs which was above and

What sounds like a quirky idea has morphed into an aged, dirty and ineffective concept. The smell on arrival was musty and dirty, the decor was old and any effort put into the effect has long since faded. We paid for a ‘character’ room which amounted to 3 facsimile posters

Response from Caroline C, Gérant at Detective Hotel
Responded 23 Jun 2018
Dear Karen, We strive constantly to improve our services and the service we offer to our customers but we can understand that our establishment was not at your convenience. We were at your disposal to bring you full satisfaction during your stay. Also why did not you come to the reception to inform us of the gene encountered in the smell in order to find solutions to remedy it, and repair the lighting that broke down just before your arrival and after having done the room: it can happen! Please be assured that we always pay special attention to the comfort and satisfaction of our guests, if they give us a verbal voice to find solutions quickly to make the most of their stay in our hotel. Cordially.

I just loved this hotel because it's very unique, our room called Miss Marple, it was very cute room with secret door to the toilet. The bed was very comfortable! Within walking distant to the beach and all the restaurants!

I wish that we stayed in Etretat and at Detective Hotel for longer than one night. This place was comfortable and quirky. The staff upgraded us to their biggest room and it had a gorgeous view of the little town. We found an old record player in the wardrobe with a huge

The hotel is very nice. It's not really modern but not old at all. There is a good détective decoration in the bedroom and the commun areas. The breakfeast was very nice. I'm quite difficule about the bathroom but it was very clean. People are very nice. The price is a little

Bonjour, Malheureusement, la municipalité ne nous autorise plus à donner ce genre de badge gratuit. Des places sont disponibles une demie-heure gratuitement devant l'hôtel afin de déposer vos baguages, ensuite nous vous indiquons le parking le moins cher à 150 mètres de l'hôtel. Cordialement, Noël
