Royal Barriere hotel in Deauville is superb. The service from housekeeping to reception to concierge is gracious, competent and accommodating. We loved our room which overlooked the sea and had a spacious balcony. The location is ideal..a short walk to shops, cafés and restaurants. The breakfasts are quite expensive and similar offerings can be found at cafés a short walk... More

The hotel has an old-world feel but needs a refresh. The room was large along with the W/C and closet but the shower was very tiny. We were told by our Tauck tour director that there is a plan for a complete renovation of the public areas and the rooms. We would definitely return to see the improvements. The location... More

If you wish to transport yourself back a century ago, this is the place. Elegant accommodations in every respect and right on the seashore. Enormous room and bathrooms with everything you need EXCEPT the WIFI service was spotty at best and no air conditioning. This did not pose a problem for us in June, but it might get uncomfortable in... More

We stayed for 3 nights in early June just before the D-Day celebrations. This hotel was just fantastic! From the lovely building to the the beachfront location, super large rooms, great bar and restaurant, our stay was everything and more we could have hoped.

Despite arriving in an old and battered Renault that looked out of place next to the Bentleys and Aston Martins parked nearby, we received a warm welcome. We were even surprised when the manager walked by to personally greet us. Perhaps he was curious. It is probably unusual to walk up to reception and request a room without a reservation... More

In many ways a charming hotel with excellent location and friendly staff, but how can it claim to be a 5-star hotel without a (functioning) wireless internet service? Poor value-for-money when considering the huge phone bill awaiting home as a result of the lack of this basic service you'd expect from a modern hotel.

Found the Royal Barriere to be a throw back to magical time, full of grandeur... Entrance and "shared" spaces are majestic and staff are excellent. Our room was very impressive in size with plenty of space for both my wife and myself and all of our luggage, however overall found it a bit dated. However will gladly stay there again...

This place is huge, I do not know why it is a 5 stars hotel. It is very old and unsafe. Not well maintain. The bedroom we had, had red carpet with design, the draperies were another color with huge flowers. The closet had three doors that was making noise whenever you would open them, difficult to reach the hangers(... More
