It is rare for me to award less than 3 stars but in my opinion, this hotel had little to redeem itself.
First the positives. We were fortunate to find a free parking place almost outside the hotel on the road, the free wifi worked fine and as the room overlooked the park it was quiet.
Why only 2 stars? If you are thinking of views over a yacht clubs marina, water, lovely setting you are wrong. The hotel is situated on a busy road overlooking part of an old dock where there are some boats behind metal grating due to extensive road works.
It is approximately a 5 minutes walk to the bars in the centre but a long way from the beach and the boardwalk.
It wasn't cheap and I paid extra for a balcony but the room was very small and somewhat claustrophobic. There was no safe, the minimum of toiletries, only two sterilised milk sachets so the coffee was almost undrinkable and we didn't feel relaxed in the room.
The two male Receptionists were OK but not wholly impressive and were often at the front door smoking.
The drinks in the bar are expensive at 6 Euros for a glass of mediocre wine which was the smallest measure I have experienced.
All in all, Deauville is OK for an overnight stop but on the strength of my experience at this Mercure, I will be avoiding the chain in future - disappointing!
