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.

    Location 8.43 /10

    The Mercure is located on rue Breney, just next to the water at Bassin Morny, hence the reference to yachts in the hotel's name. There are a few shops in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, although most, as well as the restaurants and bars, are a few minutes' walk away in the centre of town. The Trouville-Deauville railway station is a couple of minutes away while the Deauville-St. Gatien Airport is a 10-15 minute drive down the road.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    All 53 rooms at the Mercure are pretty much identical, with only the bed set up changing and some rooms boasting a balcony overlooking either the private garden or the marina. There are a few duplex rooms available for groups of friends or families and these can accommodate up to four people. The queen beds are dressed in good white sheets and have a multi-coloured plaid across the foot. On top of the mattress is placed an extra layer of bedding which enhances sleeping comfort and which is very popular with guests. Either side of the bed is a bedside table with lamp and telephone while above the bed, hanging from the false wood panelled wall, are black and white action shots of yachts. The rooms have a desk on or above which is a flatscreen television, a couple of armchairs, minibar, tea and coffee facilities and complimentary Evian water. For the moment there are no safes in the room, however valuables can be kept at reception. The bathrooms, some of which will be renovated over the next few years, are still in reasonable condition and all have bathtubs, hairdryers and Mercure toiletries. They are fitted out entirely in white and are spacious and clean. The duplex rooms have exactly the same features with a single or double bed on the ground floor as well as a loo and then a double bed and bathroom upstairs. Rooms on the fifth floor have mansard roofs and the best views.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The Mercure has a fine frontage with typical elaborate Norman timbers and balconies with a part of it in stone recalling a small castle. It's just a shame that commercialisation requires the hotel chain to plaster its insignias all over the front. The lobby, in contrast, is a modern affair, full of strong, bright colours. The reception desk, manned by pleasant members of staff, is located right at the front of the hall while just before this is a grab & go station where guests can pick up snacks such as sandwiches, crisps, chocolate, yoghurts and soft drinks and coffee. There is even a microwave for the selection of ready meals. Aside from the comfy, modern seating, art prints and flatscreen television on the wall, there is a place to borrow magazines and newspapers (although these are in French!).

    One unique feature of the Mercure is the access it grants its guests to the private park at the back of the hotel. Also accessible to those people living in the buildings surrounding the green space, it is a gorgeous place to relax and stroll around in the summer months. The rest of the public spaces are in excellent condition and the corridors, lined with black and white shots of yachts, wide and easy to navigate. For those with reduced mobility, there is a lift serving all five floors of the hotel. There is complimentary wifi throughout the hotel and eight parking spots at 15? each per night (or you can park on the street for free).

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The Mercure's breakfast room has a great backdrop, that of the private garden. Although the space is bright it is a little small for the number of rooms the hotel has and the tables are a little too tightly packed together. They are however laid nicely with place mats and delicate plants and it is quite relaxing staring out the window onto the greenery outside. The (as far as possible organic) buffet is a continental spread consisting of cereals, yoghurts, breads, patisserie, cold meats, cheeses, juices, tea and coffee as well as a few hot trays of eggs, bacon and sausages. Unfortunately these were not kept filled up and some guests had to wait a while for their warm dishes.

    On the ground floor of the hotel, past the reception, is the hotel's bar. Illuminated from beneath, it serves a range of spirits, beers and wines as well as soft drinks. It has a small seating corner with couches and lively coloured chairs and a flatscreen television on the wall.

    To know

    The hotel, which belongs to the French hotel giant Accor, opened in 1993 and was renovated six years ago. This may seem a long time in hotel years, although frankly it looks brand new. With its proximity to the marina and the numerous yachts moored there, the hotel has a loose yachting theme throughout. It is open all year round and half of one of the floor is given over to smoking rooms.

      • Value for money 6.74
      • 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.

      • Location 6.46

      A typical family-run bed and breakfast, the Marie-Anne is a decent little property located in the centre of Deauville. A little dated décor-wise, it has simple but comfortable rooms for up to three people and has a pretty little garden, perfect for those summer evenings after a day on the beach. With a homely feel and a smart breakfast room, the Marie-Anne is definitely worth considering for a weekend by the sea.

      • Location 7.87

      If you don't like surprises then the Ibis is the place for you. The great advantage of this type of hotel is that you know exactly what you are getting for your money and wherever you are in the world the standards and surrounding remain pretty much uniform. Well situated across from the station and next to the river, the Ibis offers basic rooms which are a little dated but it does have a full service restaurant and is in pretty good condition. Both couples and families will be comfortable here.

      • 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 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.

      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.

      The Esperance is a quaint little bed and breakfast and one of the finest in Deauville. Run by a lovely couple (probably) in their sixties, it provides a home away from home in a quiet street close to the centre of town. The 10 comfortable rooms are spacious and completely different from one another while there are several pleasant and relaxing public spaces to enjoy too. Clean, nicely kept and with a few unique touches, this is a hotel perfect for couples coming to Deauville for the weekend. One to seriously consider!

      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 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.

      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.

      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.
