The hotel is one of the few in Deauville not be housed in a typical Norman building, but don't let this put you off as it is one of the most pleasant inside. The spacious lobby is a welcome sight after several hours of travelling, with a real homely feel and plenty of space to sit down and rest. Plants and flowers help to brighten the place up while the rustic furniture and soft colours lend a warm aura to the space. The reception desk, round to the immediate right-hand side as you enter the front door is rather closed in putting a little distance between you and the person checking you in which is a little off-putting but the greeting is warm and the procedure harmless. The rest of the public areas of the hotel are equally well kept, with the immaculate corridors simple to negotiate and your room easy to find.
Perhaps the most pleasant common area is the private garden where guests can relax all day long in the sun (weather permitting of course) surrounded by well maintained flower beds. Partly decked, you can enjoy breakfast here too and even sit outside for drink in the evening as the space is lit. There is even a small play area for the kids so that mum and dad can keep an eye on them while having some time to themselves.
La Closerie boasts a good-sized indoor pool with space around it for lounging around. Open from 8am until 9pm and with a good decking surrounding it, the pool is heated and there is a dramatic naval scene painted on the walls around it. In one corner of the pool room is a jacuzzi while the hotel also offers a sauna and hammam. The biggest pull though of the wellness space is the massage room and the treatments offered. A series of massages and scrubs are on offer and there is even a boutique where guests can purchase products from the Sens de Marrakech range.
The hotel has complimentary wifi throughout the establishment and for those without their own laptop there is a computer for guests' use. Not that from 7pm the reception is not manned.
