Hidden away off the main street is this little gem food great service a little bit on the slow side but there was only one guy serving. The courtyard setting was very pretty and as the sun went down the candle lit tables locked great. Well worth a visit

The courtyard restaurant is attractive and you must go through this to arrive at the tiny check-in desk. We came for the annual jazz festival and this very centrally located little hotel was just right. Houlgate is small in itself but it isn't full of hotels right in town and so this is a good location. Only downside no parking... More

The cleaning lady stole 90 Euros from my 14 year old! Do not go - not worth getting robbed. My 14 year old had kept a bag of her Euros in a pocket in her suitcase as she did not want to take to beach AND we were leaving to spend time in Paris after a few days in Houlgate.... More

Small hotel with small rooms but clean and well cared for. The hotel is family run and the family are very helpful and friendly. It is located just off the main road and one block from the seafront - miles of golden sand. The hotel is very french, and has a superb restaurant which has an extensive menu that is... More

Returned to visit Houlgate after 20 years, it hasn't changed much and that's a big plus ,retains that "je ne sais crois". We were lucky to have booked such a good hotel as this. OK no big reception check in or lounge, but the welcome could not have been warmer, can only agree with others room good size,beds and bathroom... More

Houlgate, though close to Caen, is east of it and is therefore saved from overnighting Brits migrating south. It has charm and some residential architectural gems from 3rd Empire/Fin de Siecle. And this small quirky but delightful hotel/restuarant is it's star. Great welcome, facinating decor and excellent food. Will keep going back.

Not much to pick from in Houlgate, but this place is a hidden gem. Room was small, but clean and well kept.

We stayed in the only room downstairs facing the patio. It was great for us. No stairs: hub is 82. With a dog it was great for access. Quiet after 11pm and before 9am. Nice, smallish bathroom. big, firm beds, TV, a table, an ancient wardrobe. Very specially nice. The breakfast had all the usual stuff plus Normand specialities: tergoule,... More
