This hotel is in a great location, both for the beach and the town. The swimming pool is an added bonus if you get a rainy morning, as we did. The hotel was spotlessly clean, not a speck anywhere. The room was dated but functional. Hate sponge mattresses but I know they are common now. Not much noise insulation, could... More

This should be rated higher - excellent position with all the necessary facilities, including parking facilities. Only a few metres from the beach, and if you prefer an indoor pool, it has one too! Restaurant is very good, rooms are very good, staff all very pleasant & helpful. La Tranche has a wealth of shops & eating places for all... More

The main advantage of Hotel les Dunes is the location. The hotel's indoor heated pool is across Avenue Maurice Sampson as is the restaurant (seasonal - closed when I was there). It is about half a Km to the downtown area, an easy walk. Free parking across the street. Breakfast is available for about 10 euros, worth it for the... More

It is always nice to stay at a hotel that exceeds your expectations rather than vice versa. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights on an extended weekend break and found the hotel comfortable, clean and well located. We visited out of season and paid a very reasonable price. Our room had a balcony looking out over the beach... More

Just stayed at this Hotel and I really cannot understand these star ratings! It is rated as a 2* but it was very very clean, comfortable, good facilities in the room etc., and fabulous breakfast with loads of choice. The hotel is right opposite the beach with a large private car park. All the staff that we met were very... More

We booked to stay at this hotel with the intention of staying there for three days to meet up with our French friends. Unfortunately I broke my arm and my hospital appointment was in the middle of the break. There was absolutely no problem in changing the booking. We stayed in a basic room that was absolutely spotless. The reception... More

Probably the best location if you are visiting La Tranche sur Mer, right opposite the beach, with free private car park and indoor swimming pool. Lovely hosts who spoke very good English and were more helpful than the Tourist Office! The busy little town centre, full of shops and restaurants is within easy walking distance. The beach is just fabulous... More

This has been our third visit to this hotel. On each stay the rooms have been spotlessly clean and comfortable, an excellent buffet breakfast was provided, the patron has always been most helpful and attentive, and will even suggest places to visit, we are now looking forward to the next visit.

The management & staff were very friendly and always helpful, and put up with my attempts at french (they all spoke good english). We had room only,... More

Situated 400 m from the town centre, yards from the beach. The rooms were adquate, spotlessly clean. Breakfast was the usual, no complaints there. The restaurant was open, I was willing to give them the custom but is only available to those on half board ! However that 400 m walk opened up plenty of other options. Staff are very... More
