Hotel de la Mer is well located in the centre of the small town of La Tranche about 10 minutes walk from the attractive, sandy beach. Our room was of a good size, very clean with en-suite bathroom with both bath and an efficient shower. There was also a fridge and safe. Furnishings were adequate. Service was efficient if somewhat... More

Breakfast was outstanding with quality coffee and a wide variety of choice including the essential , eggs how you like them. There is a slightly odd layout to the building which... More

If you want a room with modern decor and luxurious fittings don't go to this hotel. It is stuck in a time warp of formica and polystyrene ceiling tiles. But once you have got past this first impression you should really warm to this place. That's what happened to us. As we arrived my husband said, 'Oh dear, I feel... More

Firstly, the location. As a beach resort La Tranche Sur Mer is to be recommended with a modernised centre and a good range of shops, bars and restaurants aimed at the holiday / tourist trade. The jewel in the crown is wonderful flat and wide beach with soft golden sand running all round the bay to La Griere. The hotel... More

Charming hotel near the coast. Decent size rooms and very clean. Particularly impressed by the helpful staff and friendly welcome. I left an Ipod there and it was returned safely without fuss to the UK.

My bedroom was spotless clean, and so was the rest of thé hôtel. While you can't expect a gym in a hotel to be very sophisticated, the machines in this hotel are very old. Mind you, i reckon the cross trainer being so rusty made me work harder! You cannot choose to run at 10 km/h, but you can choose... More

In the area on business in winter so it was the dead season. I was amazed to find this popular seaside hotel still open in December. The hotel room was fine and up to standard but the dinner was poor value; Breakfast was a disaster just with a few rolls, a little cheese and tea -one cup only. I'm sure... More

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting friends nearby. Our room was adequate but the toilet was so tiny it was quite difficult to get in and out. The bathroom was adequate with a sliding door but lighting was poor. An excellent buffet breakfast and the staff were very friendly.
