Stayed at the Trouville for a short birthday break with a friend after seeing great reviews on LateRooms.com. It's a wonderful B&B, well placed for short walks to the seafront, shopping areas and harbour. Both single rooms had double beds which was an unexpected bonus.

The owner Gary was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Room clean and tidy, great breakfast with excellent selection of cereals and a cooked breakfast that set me up for the rest of the day.

Very welcoming owners, Gary and Gina. Staff were helpful and friendly too. Very clean room, large towels (unlike some major hotel chains!), very comfy bed with all the usual comforts in the room, including free wifi. I have had a fantastic 4 days here and will definitely return due to all of the above and its handy location.

Gosh what a geat place to stay. The ownerscouldn't do enough for me and my family, my husband has terrible arthritis and although we hadn't booked the ground floor room, they were able to move us into it so my husband didn't have to tackle the stairs. My son is a fussy eater but Gary could always find something to tempt him. Our room had a double bed and a single bed in it, spacious and lovely decor. We all slept remarkably well. The Car Park is at the rear of the building but as soon as Gary knew we had a blue badge he explained how we could park free outside the front of the hotel. Our room was spotless and the complimentary tray was generously filled. The only disappointment we live so far away.

We stayed at the above hotel on 14th May 2010. We were shown to a room by a very pleasant gentleman who I presume was the owner.......he didn't introduce himself. My partner is registered blind and uses a guide cane to get about, but no offer was made to help with our luggage especially as we had to carry our luggage up two flights of stairs. Thankfully we have a disabled badge and were able to park outside the hotel, otherwise it would have been extremely difficult as the hotel is situated on a very busy main road. Apparently there is private parking but this wasn't mentioned to us when we checked in.
The room itself was pleasantly furnished and clean but very small. We were given a family room which had a double and single bed. This was not what we booked and so, given my partners' disability, caused a few mobility problems. The shower was impossible to use as it was so small. It was boxed into the corner of the toilet room with the toilet almost touching the door making it virtually inaccessible.
All in all this was fine for one night if you didn't require a shower, and we were left wondering how a family of three would fare given the size of the room overall.

I stayed here in September with my partner during a weekend getaway.

We were very pleased with this B&B as the rooms were clean. the breakfast was nice and the owners were very friendly.

A couple of minor downsides would be that the room wasn't really very spacious and parking is limited. These are only minor complaints as the price of the weekend stay was very pleasing.
The rooms are quite close together, but we didn't have any trouble with noisy neighbours.

As mentioned previously, the hotel owners are very friendly and knowledgeable of the area, so if you're on a weekend jaunt as we were, they can help point you in the right direction of places that are worth seeing.

Drivers: It would be wise to phone the B&B post-booking as you can arrange to have a parking space reserved during your stay.

You can never take for granted, When you stay in a hotel that the owners are going to be helpful, Kind or even pleasant. So it was a joy to stay somewhere where both owners were all three in abundance. Excellent tv in the room. A cracking breafast was just the ticket.
