This Belle Epoque beauty in the seaside town of Trouville, in Normandy, received a majestic makeover by Paris architect Jean-Philippe Nuel in spring 2015. The grand cream-colored façade, pillared entrance hall and enormous bay windows recall the town’s turn-of-the-20th-century glamour, when literary giants like Flaubert, Stendhal and Proust visited. The 103 guestrooms are done in pale grays and sea foam–blues, and they have high ceilings and modern amenities like Nespresso coffee machines and free WiFi. The suites are suitably lavish, with floor-to-ceiling windows and duplex layouts; the bathrooms feature egg-shaped basins and Gemology beauty products. Sip a glass of bubbly and enjoy the beach views from the bar’s 16-foot-tall bay windows, then sample contemporary Normandy cuisine at Restaurant 1912. Be inspired by Trouville’s long history of thalassotherapy, and treat your body to the spa’s signature treatment, Elixir de Jouvence, which incorporates seawater. The spa also features an indoor pool, a hammam, a solarium and a fitness center.
In the Area
Take a romantic stroll along Trouville Beach, where novelist Marguerite Duras was inspired to write her classic novel The Lover. Or try your luck at the super-luxe casino attached to the hotel. Take a trip to Trouville’s racy neighbor, Deauville, for some extra glamour and gleam. There you can indulge in some retail therapy at the designer boutiques in the town center, or splurge on a gourmet meal at any of the dozens of high-end restaurants. Perhaps the most famous of these is Augusto Chez Laurent, a nautically themed institution famed for its delicious lobster dishes.
How to Get There
We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights for our first honeymoon. The warm and friendly welcome at the day of our arrival, showed us that we chose the right place to stay. The modern and cozy atmosphere underlined our first impression of the hotel.
Every employee we met was very friendly and professional. Compliments to them.
Moreover, breakfast was great too. A great buffet with à la minute cooked dishes were served up to the last minute.
We will be back for sure.
This hotel offers very nicely decorated rooms with a luxurious feel, a wonderful thalasso (sea water) spa, polite yet friendly staff and a very enjoyable breakfast selection. Altogether, quality standards at this hotel are high and the staff made us feel welcome. I liked that the valet guys had loaded our luggage into our car while we were out for a walk upon checkout and even offered us some bottles of water for the road when we came to pick up the car - this is the type of goodbye that will make guests return.
The only downside of our stay was the very limited view in our room (232). We had been offered this superior room as an upgrade to the room we initially booked room. Even though the room was spacious and very comfortable, the fact that it had only a small window looking out at the side of the building next door was a bit of a shame, particularly as this hotel is located on the beach and most rooms have great views. Make sure to ask for a room with a view!
This hotel has a michelin star restaurant on site (Le 1912). We had dinner here and much enjoyed the food and wine. Be aware that the menu comes in French only and the wait staf speaks insufficient English to explain the dishes served. For us this meant a lot of 'Google translate' activity during what was supposed to be a romantic dinner without mobiles.
Great rooms , food and service! But taken the hotel as seminar location ....!! Top!
Really a great place to combine luxury and good service ! At 100 m of the coastline! Best in the region for sure! The 1 star 1912-restaurant is the cherry on the cake
very good service and good swimming pool and spagood advice on the activities around the hotelThe kindness of the concierge contribute a lot to the hotel reputationThe upgrade of the room is always the cherry on the cakeBest regards
We stayed in September for 3 nights. The hotel is right at the beach and if you have a room with sea view you enjoy a great view! It also take you less than 5' to reach the water. The personal in general is very friendly and always greets you. The rooms are clean and nicely furbished. So far, everything was quite perfect.
But there is something wrong with the waiters. As we get up early to make the most of the day, we were almost among the first for breakfast. We had the impression that the waiters /waitresses were annoyed about the early guests. There was no service attitude and it took more than 10' to get a coffee. One waitress obviously came from smoking a cigarette, a smell I don't need all day but especially not during breakfast.
Similar situation for diner. One evening it took 10' to get the menu (the restaurant was half empty) and nobody wanted to take our order, not even for a dring to start with. We therefore left to have diner in a restaurant next to the hotel. We told the story at the reception which briefly apologised.
Dear management, your hotel is wonderful and I'd recommend it. But you need to do something about the staff in the restaurant.
