Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Patio hotel is another small, typical bed and breakfast property along the main thoroughfare of Deauville. While it is certainly not the pick of the bunch, it does have simple comfortable rooms and a pleasant courtyard at its heart. Parts of the hotel are looking quite tired and it could do with a bit of a facelift. The owner plans to do exactly this but also seems quite demotivated about the whole project! You may want to look at a few other places before booking the patio, however you could also do a lot worse.

    Location 8.56 /10

    The hotel is located quite a way down on avenue de la République, Deauville's main artery. It's a bit isolated from the centre of town and the seafront is a good 10-15 minutes away on foot. The Trouville-Deauville railway station is a little further away still and the Deauville-St. Gatien Airport is a 10-minute taxi ride away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 13 rooms at the Patio are fairly basic affairs, with modest décor and upholstery and are in need of a little updating. They are all painted in a similar garish pinky peach colour and much of the furniture covers and bed linen match. They are appointed with queen size beds, each one flanked by simple bedside tables featuring lamps and a telephone. Some of the larger rooms have a set of table and chairs while the rest have a flatscreen television, heater, fridge, open closet and, brightening up the room, modern canvases on the wall. Those rooms for three to four people (some of which would struggle to accommodate as many) have an extra bed which also serves as a couch while some have a fourth bed which folds down from the wall above the third single bed. We noticed that while the rooms were clean, some of the carpets were a little stained and the wood work needed a new coat of paint. In terms of the bathrooms, the story is much the same. They were perfectly functional yet a little dated. All in white, they have basic toiletries, soap dispensers, hairdryers and depending on the room, a small shower cubicle or regular bathtub. Most of the rooms are located in the main building, although some are situated at the back of the hotel around the courtyard. There are plans for some of the older bathrooms to be redone before the end of 2011.The hotel does not have any rooms put side for guests who use wheelchairs.

    Overview 5.70 /10

    While the exterior of the hotel doesn't give a great impression of what awaits inside, it is nonetheless representative. The frontage is a little unkempt, the canopy dirty and the doorstep could do with several licks paint. The entrance hall is fairly basic but welcoming enough although it is pained in a ghastly shade of peach. There is little of note within the space, just some armchairs for repose, posters for local events gone by and a drinks vending machine. Perhaps the most pleasant feature of the hall is that you can see, via the back door, the green patio (from whence the name of the hotel) where guests can relax during the day if the weather allows. There is little noise here and it is rather pleasant to while the hours away with a book or drinkie (although don't make too much noise as there are rooms that give on to the patio).

    The common areas of the hotel are not dirty per se but could certainly do with a repaint. The two staircases that lead to the rooms on the upper floors are fairly steep and not particularly wide so those with mobility problems or large suitcases may struggle (there are no lifts at the Patio). A complimentary wifi service is available throughout the hotel.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The hotel's breakfast room is probably the jolliest part of the hotel. The room features a hardwood floor and a series of floral motif tables with chairs of all different colours drawn up beside them. On the walls are several model ships while from the ceiling are suspended fishing nets, recalling the maritime heritage of the area. The room gives on to the road just outside which is a shame as you can hear the passing traffic. But if the weather permits then why not take your breakfast to the back of the hotel and take it in the courtyard? Breakfast itself is a continental buffet composed of cereals, yoghurts, breads, patisserie, cold meats, cheeses, juices, tea and coffee.

    To know

    The hotel has been run by M. Pequet, who changed career paths to open Le Patio, for a round five years now. It is open all year round aside from two or three weeks in March/April.

      • Location 8.0

      The first of the all-mighty Barrière hotels to open in Deauville back in 1912, the Normandy still impresses almost a century on. It is, and always has been, along with its sister hotels, the finest establishment in the town and to be honest no other hotel we saw here puts this assertion into question. Boasting high quality traditional décor, well appointed rooms, stunning public spaces, fine facilities and a sea front location, if you have the money, there is no better way to spend it in Deauville. Whether you're in town on business or leisure, as a couple, family or group of friends, the Normandy will meet, and exceed, your needs and expectations.

      • Location 9.59

      For a town with an already ageing hotel scene, the Hélios certainly does it no favours. It is the most basic of hotels and is not in the best condition, having not been renovated for decades. It does have its own outdoor pool, but aside from this there is little to warrant a stay at this establishment. We found it to be dirty, tired and pretty miserable and with prices in synch with the rest of the competition, we advise you look elsewhere unless there really is nothing else available. Fairly well-positioned, the Hélios can accommodate both couples and families.

      La Closerie is one of the better hotels in Deauville. Strictly speaking it's actually what the French call a 'résidence', self contained apartments with some features of a hotel. The establishment is relatively modern, in good condition, has spacious rooms and good facilities and is centrally located. Great for families or large groups of friends travelling together, La Closerie is a good option for extended stays in Deauville all year round.

      • Location 8.05

      The Augeval is a charming little hotel made up of two typical Norman villas, each one having its own distinctive style in terms of the room décor. Despite its small size, the hotel has some great facilities which make up for its distance from both the town centre and seafront. It's not as new and shiny as some of the other hotels in the area, but it has its own character which foreign tourists will certainly appreciate whether travelling as a couple or a family.

      • Location 9.89

      The centrally located Trophée hotel is one of the better properties in Deauville. A relatively contemporary establishment, is has a good range of facilities, generously proportioned, well-appointed rooms and a pleasant staff. While not right on the seafront, it isn't either on the main road through the town and so is quieter. The Trophée is recommended for couples, families and groups of friends alike and won't disappoint during your Deauville break.

      • Value for money 6.81
      • Location 9.47

      At once a hotel and self-catering establishment, the Villa Gardenia offers basic yet comfortable accommodation on the Deauville seafront. The décor may not be to everyone's taste, but the hotel has a few assets such as its wellness facilities and location. For the most part clean, tidy and well maintained, the Villa Gardenia would suit all size groups of travellers for varying lengths of stay in the town. It lacks the charm of some of the other places to stay in Deauville but does have everything one needs for a seaside break.

      The Royal Barrière is a very similar product to its seafront sister the Normandy: a comparable décor (possibly a tad more old worldy), matching grandeur and the same standards of service and amenities and an equally enviable location. The difference is mainly in the clientele, with the hotel being geared more towards foreigners and couples than Parisians and families (though of course both are very welcome). But the Royal does have one up on its sister properties in the accommodation and restaurant categories with substantially larger rooms and the only Michelin-starred eatery in Deauville. All types of traveller will find their calling here.

      The Côte Fleurie is everything that a typical seaside bed and breakfast should be which explains why it receives guests from as far away as South Korea! One of the quaintest little properties in Deauville, the Cote Fleurie offers a handful of individually decorated rooms which are by no means the best appointed in the town but have received a lot of love and attention! Although not situated right on the seafront, the charm of the place certainly makes up for this and whether you're coming to Deauville as a couple or a small family, you'll find all you need here and be warmly welcomed. A good choice for the traditionalists.

      • Value for money 7.29
      • Location 4.5

      Of the three Barrière hotels in Deauville, this one is our favourite. It's still fairly similar in style, but is a little bit less 'in-your-face' and stuffy with cleaner lines and shinier surfaces. For us what makes the Golf stand out is its location - ok, it's not right by the sea, but its elevated position and proximity to the golf course provides a stunning setting. The rooms are simple affairs but still well-appointed and the public spaces are well kept and the architecture pleasing to the eye. Although there are facilities for kids, the hotel is more suited to couples and groups of friends and of course those whose main concern is golf. Beach bums should perhaps stick to a hotel closer to the seafront.

      By a long stretch the finest bed and breakfast in the town, Villa Josephine is a beautiful property with exquisite décor, spacious rooms and fine service. With only nine rooms it is also one of the smallest establishments in the town meaning that it is particularly quiet and that attention detail is that bit more focused. Great care has been taken over every aspect of the hotel and frankly it is difficult to fault it on any level! More of a couples retreat, this stunning villa is the place to come for that special weekend away by the sea. Try and get a reservation here before anywhere else!

      We liked this property very much and we're sure you will too. Tucked away off of a quiet street a few minutes' walk from the river front in Trouville, this newly renovated property has a good range of facilities and well appointed rooms as well as a peaceful location and pleasant staff. The hotel has a homely feel and is a good choice for those couples looking to benefit from what the area has to offer but without being in the eye of the storm.

      The Almoria is a cute little hotel along the main artery of Deauville's centre. The main pull of the property is its nicely sized, well decorated rooms, some of which have pleasant inland views. What it lacks in facilities it more than makes up for in charm and both couples and families will feel at home here, due in large part to the laid back, down to earth staff. Although not right on the seafront, it is worth considering given some of the poorer alternatives closer to the beach.

      Although many travellers prefer to avoid hotel chains in order to find something original and new, the Mercure in Deauville is highly recommended for those looking for a good value hotel of a certain standard. This compact establishment is actually quite snazzy and very comfortable. It may lack the facilities of many of the other hotels in the town, but it has a good location and some of its own unique features such as the private park. There'll be no nasty surprises with this modern hotel suitable for couples, friends and families.
