A curate's egg...
We stayed here for 3 nights for a big birthday. The positives - we arrived off the overnight ferry at about 8am and were able to get into our room straight away, for which we were very grateful. The hotel is easy to find (I was a first time driver on the continent and was worried about this) and has lots of parking. It's very convenient for the town centre, and the beach and Deauville are easy walking distance too. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was very quiet, looked out over a small garden then on to adjoining properties. And the wifi is probably the best I have ever had in a hotel.
And now the not so good... as I said we got into the room at 8am which was great - but while the bedroom had been cleaned, the bathroom had not. Used towels, a full bin, sand and hair in the bath, lipstick on a glass. We had to ask twice at reception to get it cleaned and even then we got clean towels and the bin emptied but had to deal with the glass and the bath ourselves. Now to be fair, when we checked out they didn't charge us for a couple of glasses of champagne, but frankly I would have preferred a clean bathroom. We weren't overly impressed with the breakfast buffet although only visited it once; the fruit salad looked a bit weary, the coffee machine was out of water and the member of staff wasn't rushing to fill it up again.
The worst bit of all though was outwith the control of the hotel and so we don't blame them for it, but the extensive and noisy lovemaking of the young French couple in the room next door was a regular interruption day and night, they were still at it when we left so I hope for the sake of the next inhabitants of room 221 they were checking out that day... less
