We have stayed in the Houlgate area several times and always liked the look of the Grand Hotel. The central location was great for the beach, shops, bars and restaurants.
The corridor leading to the apartment was somewhat dark and dingy. However the apartment itself was light and very clean with all the facilities needed. The kitchen was very well equipped as was the shower room. We could have done with another armchair to have made life a little more comfortable. The temperature when we stayed was over 30 degrees, so a fan would have been helpful. That said, we will certainly consider staying there again.
Parking was not really a problem, but we were staying outside the main holiday period. The weekend was particularly busy though.
Although we telephoned the day before our arrival date giving our time of arrival, we still had to phone again when we arrived for the caretaker (who spoke no English) to bring the key. Also as we were leaving at 6 am, this could also have been problematic. A key safe would have made arrival and departure easier.
Some notes in English with regard to the operation of the TV and microwave would have been helpful. The free WIFI was great.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
