This hotel is situated three kilometres from the centre of La Tranche so a nice walk to the market. It is a little faded glory in need of some TLC and updating. The staff are great and the terrace for drinks excellent but we felt it just needed updating.

Hotel de la Mer is well located in the centre of the small town of La Tranche about 10 minutes walk from the attractive, sandy beach. Our room was of a good size, very clean with en-suite bathroom with both bath and an efficient shower. There was also a fridge and safe. Furnishings were adequate. Service was efficient if somewhat...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. A 10 minute walk to beach via promenade. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious with an excellent large balcony. Breakfast was outstanding with quality coffee and a wide variety of choice including the essential , eggs how you like them. There is a slightly odd layout to the building which...

If you want a room with modern decor and luxurious fittings don't go to this hotel. It is stuck in a time warp of formica and polystyrene ceiling tiles. But once you have got past this first impression you should really warm to this place. That's what happened to us. As we arrived my husband said, 'Oh dear, I feel...

Firstly, the location. As a beach resort La Tranche Sur Mer is to be recommended with a modernised centre and a good range of shops, bars and restaurants aimed at the holiday / tourist trade. The jewel in the crown is wonderful flat and wide beach with soft golden sand running all round the bay to La Griere. The hotel...

Charming hotel near the coast. Decent size rooms and very clean. Particularly impressed by the helpful staff and friendly welcome. I left an Ipod there and it was returned safely without fuss to the UK.

My bedroom was spotless clean, and so was the rest of thé hôtel. While you can't expect a gym in a hotel to be very sophisticated, the machines in this hotel are very old. Mind you, i reckon the cross trainer being so rusty made me work harder! You cannot choose to run at 10 km/h, but you can choose...

In the area on business in winter so it was the dead season. I was amazed to find this popular seaside hotel still open in December. The hotel room was fine and up to standard but the dinner was poor value; Breakfast was a disaster just with a few rolls, a little cheese and tea -one cup only. I'm sure...

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting friends nearby. Our room was adequate but the toilet was so tiny it was quite difficult to get in and out. The bathroom was adequate with a sliding door but lighting was poor. An excellent buffet breakfast and the staff were very friendly.
