Hotels of the Barriere group, including the Royal together with Normandy and Hotel du Golf, comprise the most prominent luxury accommodation in the chic though somewhat passe resort city of Deauville. On a number of occasions throughout the year the city's top hotels host a wide array of celebrities from prominent politicians to movie starts who come to this city renowned for international summits and film festivals.
The Royal is conveniently located in the heart of the attractive city center overlooking the beach right next to the upscale shopping area and the casino. There is a small outdoor swimming pool with pay per use sunbeds.
However, despite the imposing outside appearance and grand central hall, the interior of the rooms fails to make a lasting impression. Marble bathrooms, substantial beds, views overlooking the beach or the city.. but generally nothing too special to set it apart from most other four/five star hotels. The interior furnishings and decorations of standard rooms are fairly unremarkable. For a top hotel in the region of Normandy, renowned for its architectural and artistic creativity, it would be fair to expect a little more. Standard rooms at the nearby Hotel du Golf are also fairly larger than here.
The restaurant, while upscale and pretentious, also failed to make a striking impression though the quality was certainly not bad.
Overall a good hotel, but strives to represent itself better than it is. Perhaps, as a city of Deauville itself it comes alive on a few occasions in a year when an event takes places and after reverts to its ordinary existence. If travelling by own car it's probably best to stay at Golf Barriere located in the countryside but only few km away.
