Domaine de Villers Hotel Restaurant & Spa4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This small hotel on the sea front is run by a young couple. They are very personally involved in the running of the hotel and pay a great deal of attention to guests. There is a tea room which is run as a separate enterprise and is used for breakfast. There is no restaurant for lunch and dinner but there are many restaurants in the town. Breakfast consists of a small selection of cereals, pastries, bread, yoghurts, ham and cheese with emphasis on local suppliers. The rooms are quite small. Some have a sea view and balcony but they are quite expensive considering the lack of facilities. The decoration in our room was a bit tired with wrinkled wallpaper where damp had penetrated at some point. There is no lift so you have to climb the stairs to the bedrooms. There is a car park charged at €7 per day.
We came to the Domaine de Villers on a smartbox voucher and expected a "second class treatment", so it was a nice surprise that the staff was extremely friendly and did not make us feel any different from the other guests. The room was spacy, the bed comfortable and the surroundings pleasant. My wife loved her dinner, I found mine a bit disappointing (but not bad at all !). Wine was expensive, but very good. However, being so close to the sea eats away the paint, and they could do with a bit of renovation work. The indoor pool was lovely, but the décor was really naff, and the part around the Jacuzzi has not been finished (and it looks like it has been this way for a while). Also, the Jacuzzi was so full of chlorine, one did not want to stay in long. So, top marks for the people working there, no exception, but the building could do better.
We stayed there for 3 nights, great mid point from Amiens to Mont Saint Michel, D Day beaches and Paris. Reception, room nicely appointed. The spa and pool were clean and relaxing. Restaurant food for dinner was over priced for what it was. Food was OK, but, not worth the prices they are charging. Breakfast at 20Euros a head was OK, nice choice of French pastries etc., a Continental breakfast with a large choice. Reception staff friendly, not such a reception from the waiters.
This overpriced hotel was a huge disappointment. On the plus side the bed was comfortable, the free wifi was fast and the cheese trolley was nice. Sadly the list of negatives is slightly longer. The hotel is shabby and needs tidying up. The service in the restaurant was slow and inattentive. I would have likes to have been offered a glass of wine before my starter arrived. The starter was so hot - just out of the microwave and the following courses were either cold or tepid. The drowned fly on my dessert was disgusting and the accompanying wines were very poor quality. Definitely a culinary experience I would not recommend at €89 per head! As we were checking out my husband noticed that we had been charged €88 for breakfast which we didn't have. An apology for this would have been polite, but none was forthcoming. We left feel ripped off.
Hidden away but no sea view, the place is more modern than expected, but has an old-fashioned feeling to it. Bedrooms are really comfortable with wi-fi (slow), robes, lovely beds and we had a terrace with seating. Very very clean and nice toiletries. Lovely attention to detail. Breakfast in the room comprised coffee, juice, fruit salad, yogurts and plenty of bread, croissants and pastries. The only downside was the receptionist. We'd booked a table in the restaurant to eat on the second night, but after a day of touring the war cemeteries and sombre memorials, we had no appetite. Explaining we were too tired to eat, and the reason why, she was particularly frosty, demanding to know whether we'd already eaten out and moaning about the fact she could have filled it earlier. However, maybe due to the older clientele but the place is kept overly warm and we had to choose between boiling between the sheets or throwing open the windows to invite in the mosquitoes. The mosquitoes won.
Very helpful and informing staff at check-in. Ideal if your stay is not longer than 2-3 days. Excellent "carte des vins". Welcoming bar. Good restaurant. 1 Clumsy waitress. Top maître d'hotel, friendly, helpful and correct. Breakfast above French an 3* standards. Nice swimming pool/spa area.
We stayed there for a few nights in one of their superior rooms. The staff were very friendly. The hotel is cosy and quiet and within a short driving distance to the village and Deauville and beyond. We had dinner at the restaurant and the gourmet menu was indeed excellent, although a bit pricey. The room was very clean, although a bit soulless as others have mentioned. Our personal preference would have been for a duvet instead of blankets and for better quality pillows.
We go to Deauville most years, and in the main styayed at the Barriere Hotels which are fine if you get a flash deal price. We couldnt ,so stayed somewhere (reviewed elsewhere) in Deauville on the way out, but stayed in Villers sur Mer on the way back. What a difference ! Only thee miles from Deauville down the Coast Road, and a lovely little typical French Town with everything you need. As to the Domainae de Villers, just out of the town, perched up a Hill and looking greatr. A wonderful view, great gardens, lots of room to sit and a very welcoming staff... oh and lots of room to park. The rooms were a very good size, the Samsung TV (withg DVD) worked and was clear, and the bed very comfortable. The price very reasonable Eur 132 for a double rtoom, and breakfast would have been Eur 19 extra but we ambled down to the town and had an all in breakfast for Eur 6. !! We hope to go there again.
My heading covers the points I want to address: 1) Room is not my taste being a little chintzy/twee - but OK size and OK mattress. 2) Bathroom is just horrible - all quarry tiles, appalling lighting for anything - a couple of lights in ceiling near mirror creating shadows everywhere, shower head that fitted directly vertically at about 6 foot hight so you had to hold it all the time - when will damned hotel managers test their own rooms out and see what basic idiocy they have put in. 3) Breakfast quality was fine 4) Service for breakfast another matter - one day we had an appointment which meant we had to leave around 745am, with breakfast room serving from 8am. We went down to see if anything was out at 730am - it was all ready except some of the hot food, so we started gettng a bowl of cereal and were stopped by the breakfast lady - when my wife said we had to go to the hospital for an appointment, there was " I am sorry" - sorry, my ... - what was the big deal allowing a bowl of cereal which was out - I lost it and expletives were said, On our return I told the hotel reception it was a disgrace - but simply told 8am is the rule, but if we had given prior warning it may have been OK - still do not see why the problem when everything was ready. So left one day earlier. Previous service was also a joke - no help in taking an ironing board and iron up to the room, the next day we asked for it again - told this time there was no board and we could use the bed for ironing on. Sorry for Euro 185 per night - this sort of attitude is pathetic. The customer is absolutely not king here is they provide any inconvenience. Conclusion - never again.
Spent a family week-end in Villers in July. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, my first impression on the phone when I booked the 3 rooms was confirmed during our stay! The location is very good, good view, just a couple of minutes from the center of Villers and the beach, away from the main road, so quiet when relaxing in the garden or on the balcony of your bedroom. The hotel provides a very nice swimming pool as well, with a shallow side very practical for younger children who want to play. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and very spacious, most of them with large balcony. The restaurant was very good too, good service and fine cuisine. Not very cheap, but will definately go back for another week-end treat.
