“Appalling room, terrible treatment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2010

When I arrived at the hotel, I was shown to an annexe at the rear. We went up a dark stairway to an even darker corridor with an overwhelming smell of damp and decay. I was given a very small room, which also smelled strongly of damp and decay. There was a hard bed, which seemed to be homemade of plywood. A rough cubicle had been carved out of a corner of the room, again with plywood and contained a shower stall so small I could not get into it.

I went for a walk, then returned and said I was unhappy with the room. The desk clerk's response was that their rooms in the main hotel were much better; they knew the annexe rooms were terrible, but they could not give Venere customers (I had booked through the Venere.com website) anything better at the price - €130 per night for a single room. I said that I wanted to leave. The clerk insisted I pay in full for the night (I had arrived only an hour earlier) as Venere would not permit them to waive or even reduce the room charge. He indicated that there would be "consequences" if I refused to pay, and I did so. I subsequently got a far better room for €100 in a hotel with a higher Michelin rating one minute's walk away.

The only positive thing I could say about this hotel was that it's centrally located. Unfortunately, there were many cons:

1. The rooms were dirty. The carpets had browns spots all over them - looked like they hadn't been replaced in 25 years. The bedspread was disgusting - the kind that cheap motels from the 80's use (as opposed to duvet's with washable duvet covers).

2. For a 3 star hotel in Deauville, this place was way overpriced.

3. When we arrived in the room, it had a really strong fake perfumey odor - they had one of those Glade plug-in things and it was way strong and not pleasant at all.

4. The bathrooms were tiny.

Upon checkout (we only stayed one night) I mentioned to the owner that I didn't feel the hotel was satisfactory given the price - I mentioned the dirty carpets - and she was really rude and impossible, saying "C'est normal". Honestly, I don't know what's "normal" about filthy carpets.

I do NOT recommend this place.

Stayed here for three nights. We booked one of the cheaper rooms (120 euros a night) which turned out to be in the annex at the back. It was basic but clean and comfortable. Breakfast is served in the main part of the hotel and consists of croissants, bread & fresh fruit. All ok but you pay 12 euros extra and can get better value down the road.
Location is good being within easy walking distance of the town centre and there is free car parking on site. Be warned that Deauville is very expensive for everything. Eating out will cost £25 a head minimum and wine/beer will cost a lot. Even a cup of coffee will cost around £4. Overall this hotel was ok. The staff were pleasant & helpful (especially the owner) and although a bit expensive you won't find much cheaper in this town

VERY EXPENSIVE, 150 euro for one room and very dirty
bathrooms were new, but that was it. Rooms smelled like mold. Avoid if you can!
