Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Despite its nods to convention, this fairy tale has little artifice: like Alice, it's a Gallic product that's stylish, not slick."
‑ Daniel M. Gold, New York Times
"Jean-Paul Bathany and Stéphane Ben Lahcene's screenplay briskly sets up its game of musical chairs, but then lets its characters wander about the seaside town at a reliably mild velocity."
‑ William Goss, The Dissolve
"There isn't a moment in Hôtel Normandy that isn't painfully contrived, yet, worse still, its mix-ups boast all the inspiration and excitement of a weekend getaway at the local mall."
‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice
"Another well-upholstered but cheap exercise in luxe pandering that fails as romantic farce."
‑ Bill Weber, Slant Magazine
"Yes, it's a total cliché, but how kind of wonderful that the French are upholding this sort of corny but sweetly human traditional stuff even in the new millennium."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
