“a lovely little hotel”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

I stayed in this hotel in Trouville in early July for 3 nights. It was prior to school holidays starting and therefore the hotel and the town was still quite quiet. Not tons of tourists about.
I arrived at the train station, coming from Paris. To find the hotel, it is really important to come out of the train station and bear to your right and cross the small bridge.Turn left and stroll along the road to the right of the canal, heading towards the large yellow casino that is ahead. The street leading to the hotel runs off to the right as you near the casino. The reason why I am stating these directions is because I asked a policeman directions as I exited the station, and he erroneously directed me to Deauville which is the town to the left of the station. Apparently that town too has a Rue Victor Hugo!!!!
There was a lady from England working at the front desk during my stay, and I found her very friendly and helpful.
My room faced a street (not Victor Hugo)... and I found it quite noisy with traffic at times of the day. In fact, the hotel itself was quite noisy ( I guess due to its age)... I could hear toilets flush, showers run, floors above creak, sounds from rooms nearby. I had to wear earplugs in order to sleep... something I never have usually to do. Also, the light from the streetlight outside my window shone through the curtains, making my room quite bright at night. I also had to wear a nightshade.... also a rare occurrence. The mattress was comfortable, the pillows so-so.
What I liked about the hotel was its location... a quick walk to the street lined with cafes, close to the boardwalk and beach, 10 min. walk to station, etc.
As well, I enjoyed the breakfast... the pain au chocolat. mmmmm... was warm and delicious.
Would I stay here again? Yes, it's all part of the experience and the positives outweighed the negatives.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for four nights in August 2013, and we liked it a lot.

The main characteristics in our mind are:
Family atmosphere - welcoming attitude and great service
Well designed rooms
Very clean
And it is located right at the centre, close to the beach, Casino, shopping and restaurants.
The only difficulty was the parking which is a bit limited (some days we got lucky), but this is very common in Trouvile.

Nice small hotel in Trouville ideal for exploring the area, The standard rooms are small but are clean and comfortable, There are plenty of restaurants in the area which will be needed as only saw breakfast in the hotel. There is a small car park in the courtyard suitable for 3 or 4 cars which they run on a first come first served basis there is parking for free on some of the narrow side streets and a maximum of three hours pay street parking elsewhere up to 7pm then it is free after that until 9am next morn.The hotel is quite and did not see a bar, may be to quite for some people.Some of the rooms look out onto small roadways were the slightest noise in the night can be heard, our room had no air conditioning so i suspect it could be very warm in the height of summer.

Room Tip: Get a larger non standard room.

We stayed here during a French bank holiday weekend so Trouville, the beach and all the restaurants were very busy, but the atmosphere was really good. To see hundreds of people eating outside (with gas heaters) on a cold November evening was an eye-opener! Our 2nd floor room was reasonably priced, very clean, warm and quiet with a comfortable double bed and an en-suite with a bath (which we like) with shower over. The room was fairly small but typical for a french hotel. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The charging is on the basis of room only with breakfast extra, though most people staying also had breakfast in the hotel so it would be nice to see a rate for B&B. The continental buffet breakfast had a good choice, with tasty fresh bread and croissants. We found the decor in the breakfast room particularly stylish and attractive, which all adds to the experience. The hotel is well situated right by the town centre and only 10 minutes walk to Trouville-Deauville SNCF station (we travelled by train from England).

Room Tip: Altough there is little trafic at night a higher floor should be even quieter.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights this November and was delighted with its overall charm. Two minutes to the beach, one minute to town centre, good clean standard room and charming staff. Stayed on a bed and breakfast basis (as so many great restaurants nearby) and the breakfasts were excellent - a wide choice including homemade patisserie and croissants. Highly recommend

The ladies at the front desk were extremely helpful, the room was impeccably clean, tastefully decorated, comfortable bed, wifi worked. Checkout was not until noon, which was nice. A lot of people have said the rooms are small, but it was normal sized for Europe, judging from others I've seen. Great location, quiet street. Just a couple blocks from the beach and lots and lots of great restaurants all around. Charming and definitely recommended!

I stayed at Le Fer a Cheval in June 2012. It was a superior value ($73 per night). The staff were friendly and welcoming. My room was small but well appointed, with a desk, bed, wardrobe, flat screen TV, separate washroom and Loo. There was no AC but in early June this was not a problem. The Hotel is a walkable distance to the train station. There is a green grocer, bakery and Monoprix in very close proximity. Also one is centrally located to the beach, cafes and bars. As a single female traveler, I felt safe and in a good location every step of my vacation here.
The breakfast was a good value for the price (€10.50) . Unlimited cups of cafe au late, a goodly selection pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, cheeses, cold cuts, cereals, applesauce and fruit juices.
I would stay here again and do recommend it.
