Le Grand Hotel Cabourg - MGallery Collection
Ranked #1 of 14 Hotels in Cabourg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 14, 2013

I have wanted to stay at the Grand Hotel in Cabourg for a long time: Proust has made it into the Grand Hotel at Balbec in his long book 'A la recherche du temps perdu', and he did stay there for a number of years. It is a luxury, but well worth it. My husband and myself booked a room looking on the seafront, a little more expensive than one looking on the gardens, but - again - worth every euro! The view of the sea, the tide going out and coming in, the soothing noise, and the room itself, spacious and well appointed, were a great treat. An unexpected bonus (for me at any rate as I'm a bit 'mad' about everything to do with Proust!) was that our room was just 5 doors from his on the same corridor, which meant the view he describes would have been more or less the same as the one we saw!
At every point we were made most welcome and though I'm sure we weren't the most wealthy of their customers, the hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful or courteous. I hope we can go again!

Room Tip: I would recommend the rooms with sea views, but only if you like to hear the sea during the night...

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it . All the staff were very helpful and knowledgable about where to visit and which restaurants to eat in . The rooms are large and well decorated . A great place to stay in Normandy .

Room Tip: We had a garden view and it was excellent .

We stayed at the Grand Hotel de Cabourg as part of a tour and we certainly did not expect such an exceptional property to be included. The hotel is located right on the English Channel with a wonderful Boardwalk between the hotel and the sandy beach. The front of the hotel faces a small park which is surrounded by lovely villas and it is but a very short walk to the shops, restaurants of Cabourg. Our room faced the park and had a small balcony which you could step out onto to take in the charm of the surroundings. The room itself was large as was the bathroom with a large walk-in shower which we prefer over the tub/shower combos.

Should we ever find ourselves in this area of France by ourselves we would certainly return. We found the staff to be very friendly, the service excellent, and the morning breakfast, with a vast selection, very satisfying.

This is a very well located hotel in a beautiful town.
They perform a show on the hotel facade on Sundays in summer.
The receptionists are very nice, smiley and helpful. Restaurant and bar staff are ok but somehow not friendly and with an attitude. They should ease up and remember that client is king.
At our arrival, bathroom in the lobby were broken so we went on the first floor, but there was no soap in dispensers and no hand towels.
I booked a family room and it was very comfortable and better looking than the rest of the hotel.
Deco is good but they tried too hard and missed it, which spoils the beautiful place a little.
Location is fantastic, one side of the hotel on a small park surrounded by magnificent villas, the other side opens to the beach. Use of the beach chairs is not possible for guests (opens only at 11am!) and is charged for the day. There is no shower or tap to wash feet after a walk on the beach or swim in the sea before coming back in the hotel, guests have to use bedroom towels.
All in all a it is a beautiful place but service could be improved.

We loved our weekend away. Almost everything was pefect. The drinks in the bar were not too badly priced when you consider that there were olives and other nibbles provided - as well as the splendour of the room and the theatrical performance behind the bar when cocktails were ordered. Sitting watching the sea was great, the jousting festival was watchable entertainment and the staff were helpful and polite. would go again. .

The bathroom and bedroom were fine but the separet toilet was minute - but not the end of the world

Room Tip: have one overlookng the sea and not the car park to the front of the building. Car parking spaces c...

An old world hotel that still lives up to its name. The location and splendour of the building cannot be beat, but rather than allow the property to fade, the Sofitel chain has modernized every part. The dining room menu is limited but excellent. The breakfast buffet is generous and of high quality. Service is professional and friendly. The lack of a spa is a mystery, and the only (small) critique one might make. Ocean-facing rooms are only slightly more expensive than those overlooking the park (actually parking lot) and worth the small premium. Marcel Proust, a regular guest, would have appreciated the free and reliable wi-fi now available to lesser writers who stay here.
