Found the staff and service good but my room was clean but looked tired and dirty in places as per others reviews the strangest thing about the room was having a seperate toilet which didnt have a hand basin to wash your hands in, instead you have to walk back through your room and into the bathroom, which isnt very hygenic The Bathroom, it was a good size but no proper shower, only a stupid hand held thing which is totally impratical as if like me you much prefer a show to a bath also the white panel above the double glased windows was very dirty The taps should be replaced for better grip and decent thermostatic control and finally the desk chair, it gooded OK but sit on it and the backs of your legs dig into the wood frame, so clearly not enought padding in the seat cushion "The nespresso coffee machine in your room is free to use" said reception..........that was true apart from the fact there were no Nespresso coffee pods to actual make a coffee!!! all this for the whopping price of 630euro, i think this was way to much but being where it is location wise and probably hiked up during the film festival, what do you expect???.......just glad it was a company expense and wasnt coming out of my own money
I really enjoyed my stay at the Royal. Old, classy and beautiful. Great service. Friendly staff. Food and drinks were expensive as hell. The location is perfect. My room had a beach view but I actually prefer the view of the town. The gym is adequate. All in all I loved my stay in Deauville and would highly recommend the Royal.
To begin with the best part: I loved my room with its view of the ocean and its balcony. I kept the doors open most of the time and got lovely sea breezes through the room. At night I closed the shutters to keep out the light but not the doors so I kept that breeze. I don't believe my room was air conditioned (couldn't find the temperature control anywhere and I did look hard for it) but I didn't need that. The ocean air was great. My bathroom was updated, large and modern but the bedroom could have used a reno. The closets were old but there were many of them so at least I had plenty of space to store cloths. I believe the hotel will be undergoing renovations and that's good to know as its necessary. Housekeeping was a little spotty during my stay. (One night the bedspread and decorative pillows were just tossed on the floor for example.) My biggest complaint was the light meal I had one night in the bar. The selection was very limited and the only other dining option was in-room or in the large, main dining room which was mostly empty that night. The steak tartar I ordered was very under seasoned and mushy. The worse offence however were the fries - tasteless & dry like they had been frozen for centuries. Definitely not hand cut from fresh potatoes nor properly twice fried. This is a simple thing to fix and a five star hotel should do so. This place is expensive which sets up expectations.
Stayed here for 3 nights. Service was good. Everyone was attentive. Housekeeping worked around our schedule without being obtrusive. The swimming pool was nice, but a bit cold. Concierge was very helpful.
A truly sutunningly good hotel. I stayed in the Normandy a few years ago but found the Royal to be superior in every way. Breakfast about the best I've encountered anywhere. Excellent service, unbeatable location--can't say enough good about this hotel.
Amazing hotel with very good view and food. Both breakfast food and room service is very tasty and fresh. The view of the sea is beautiful. On the downside, the room my friends were staying in (we booked two rooms) did not have air conditioning but it was fine since it wasn't very hot.
The hotel is very classy, very frenchy and well conserved . They have gluten free and dairy free options which is not often in France. The hotel is well located near the beach and mains streets. Therefore few negative things need to be said here : we ordered truffles omelet and we got OLIVES omelet, the omelet had lots of black pieces and it was obvious : it can't be truffles at all, the truffles specific flavour and smell was not in our plates neither. We separated few of those black dots and it was olives. We told them they did apologise but still this can't happen in an high standard hotel. Second negative thing : we ordered a room service for the breakfast, it was fast delivered (bravo), everything was there BUT our 2 caffes latte came with cold almond milk. I do not write reviews to critic but improve the quality of the services. We all need to learn and improve.
After spending 2 days in Paris , Deauville was a wonderful way to spend the weekend. It's only two hours by train. On arriving at this imposingly elegant beachfront hotel we checked in and were offered complimentary drinks at the bar as our room wasn't quite ready. We decided to leave our bags and head off to honfleur a beautiful town 20 minutes away. When we returned we went to our room which was beautiful but found that there was no air conditioning . I was warned by a friend that this hotel albeit 5 star doesn't have ac in every room. Luckily for us, I had contacted the hotel and received an email assurance that I would get a room with aircon. The staff were very obliging and upgraded us to another beautiful room with air con. The room had a balcony with magnificent views of the famous promenade and beautiful beach. The beds are super comfortable and the housekeeping staff were excellent. On Saturday am we went to breakfast at 9am. The dining room was empty but on Sunday at 10am it was heaving. They even set up tables and a buffet in the lobby! I must say that I think the breakfast selection could be improved. There were no cut up vegetables and no fish eg. Tuna or smoked salmon. But we didn't-go hungry and the staff were very friendly. We ordered room service once and were told that it would be about 30 mins . Literally 10 mins later it was delivered. What great service. The pool is nice but the loungers are too close together. The poolside restaurant is excellent both the food and service. Try the hot chocolate at the lobby bar its divine!! Had a really relaxing time and will hopefully come again soon.
I moved to Paris two years ago from San Francisco and have been exploring cities all across France. I'd heard a lot about the city of Deauville (fashionable beach town with a famous history that includes Coco Chanel opening her first boutique there in 1913), but had no idea of what I’d find. I booked an easy, two hours train ride from Paris and discovered a magical city by the sea that stole my heart. I stayed at the beautiful and stately, Hotel Barriére Le Royal Deuville. From the moment I arrived, I knew this was a special place. The hotel lobby has tall ceilings, a swank lounge with luxe red mohair seating, hip music playing in the background and an overall glamorous vibe. At dusk, they dim the lights and the lobby feels like old Hollywood. The service is professional and top notch — from the efficiency at check-in to the nice man who delivered my luggage to my room there is a warmth and kindness that comes through with every interaction. The food is delicious both at their elegantly appointed restaurant and chic champagne bar. When I arrived in my room there was a freshly-baked poundcake with a welcome note from the General Manager, Mr. Cyril Casabo, waiting on my desk…and moments later there was a knock at my door and a delivery of a fresh bouquet of flowers from the concierge. I was touched by the thoughtfulness and hospitality. Just after check-in, I had a drink and light bite at the bar before exploring the area. The friendly bar manager, Thomas, recommended a new summer cocktail called a MojiDos, created by their own award-winning bartender at Hotel Barriére Le Normandy, their sister hotel just around the corner, and now served exclusively at both hotels…it's like a Mojito but made with Calvados (a local apple brandy) and it’s delicious! You’ve got to ask for it. After having a great experience at the hotel restaurant on my first night, Thomas recommended I go to Le Ciro’s for dinner the following evening and it was outstanding. Across the street from the hotel and literally on the board walk, the restaurant offers an excellent menu that features the freshest seafood and superb desserts. I sat outside and watched a beautiful sunset then walked to the Casino for a fun night at the tables. The following day, the helpful concierge recommended walking into town for some sightseeing and shopping, followed by an afternoon polo match. It was my first polo event and it was terrific — classic, spirited and fun! The overall vibe of Deaville is enchanting and only made better by the experience of having stayed at this majestic five-star hotel. I can’t say enough about how impressed I am by the hospitality and gracious service offered by Cyril Casabo and the entire team. I can’t wait to go back!
Hi, we spent one night there.....the hotel is a very old one but well kept. If you arrive to Deauville you really do not have many options. This is why we choose it. The city is very nice and the area is beautiful. So you will need a car if you want to check out the other small towns in the area. We got a nice room and in the morning went to the breakfast in the hotel that the day of arrival the lady at the concierge said that if we want the breakfast it will be 30€ instead of 35€ . So we excpected a very nice buffet breakfast but we're very disappointed. A very small selection of pastries, breads, jams and egg. Not what you expected from a 5 star hotel that charges 35€ per person.
