Nice hotel in a good location within walking distance to all attractions, very helpful English speaking staff for whom nothing was too much. We were driving a nine-seater van that just made it in the parking lot, the receptionist kept a eye out for a good parking spot so that it would be easier for us to park. Good breakfast and fruit was always available in the lobby. We initially were given room 21 in the newer part of the hotel, this had a large wet type bathroom which made the floor very slippery and also there was excessive wind noise at night, the receptionist kindly changed the room for us in a quieter part of the hotel. One more small thing, lift is tiny and only takes two persons with their luggage. Overall good value, good location and great staff.

Stayed in Biarritz for 3 nights for an off-season break. Location: Situated in a quiet neighbourhood slightly outside of the touristic centre. 10 mins walk to Cotes de Basque and Les Halles. Around €10 to the train station and €15-17 to the airport by taxi. Most attractions are within a walkable distance. Room: I booked a classic room for myself, the size is spacious enough for one person (plus a balcony). The room is clean and tidy. I agree that the edges are a bit tired in places, though it's minor to me. Meanwhile, I enjoyed the shower stall very much. Spacious and satisfying. My room is facing a primary school, so in the morning I can hear kids going to school. It's not noisy at all, but I can hear it. Breakfast: There are two options for breakfast. One is the express one including coffee, orange juice and Vienniose. Another one includes some regional produce, such as charcuterie, cheese and gateau de Basque. I don't usually wake up early enough for breakfast, but this time I happened to wake up early, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's certainly worth trying. Service: I'm impressed by the service in general. Most staff that I encountered are friendly and helpful. Yann, the reception staff, in particular, is amicable and accommodating. He made some good recommendations on places to go. I also had some particular demand, and he managed to sort them out for me.

Nice little hotel with friendly staff. Pros: Staff speak English and are service minded, breakfast better than expected for a three star hotel, newly renovated and fresh rooms, quite neighbourhood Cons: Does not offer late check out

This hotel is clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is tasty too. The location is great. It's about 10 minutes walk from the town and beach. Many good restaurants nearby.

Hotel is in a fab location. We went to attend the Wheels and Waves Bike Show in Cite de L'Ocean so this hotel was central for us between the town and all the eaty places and the show ground. Clean hotel, a little bit tired in places but very clean. We never ate breakfast here as preferred to wander into town which was only a few minutes walk. We will be returning next year to Wheels and Waves and will hopefully be staying at this hotel again.

The hotel was just for a stop over before we travelled to San Sebastian in Spain. The room was a good size as was the bathroom but it could have done with a lick of paint and new grouting round the shower cubicle. The price wasn't too bad considering the area. It was close to a lot of restaurants and bars and a short walk to the lovely beach so really nothing to moan about.

Hotel is situated in a calm area, 3mins walk from the beach, 3mins walk to the city center. Healthy breakfast but also serving local cakes and croissants. Beautiful modern and clean rooms. And the staff was very friendly too. We had an awesome time there!

Located about a 10 minute walk from the beach and 20 minutes from city center, this hotel offers reasonable accommodation for a reasonable ( for Biarritz) price. The rooms are predictably very small, but the shower stall is bigger that usual in this size room. The furnishings are new and spotlessly clean. There is one Basque restaurant close-by, but we did not eat there. Otherwise, you must walk to town for dining alternatives. The staff are friendly and helpful and speak excellent English

We booked the cheapest room and knew it would be quite small but perfectly acceptable. Comfortable and clean with a nice shower room. It is in a side street but we did hear some traffic noise in the early morning. It is only a short walk to the beach or town. We had a room at the front in the traditional building and our room had a street light outside and no shutters. We didn't mind but some might. Also make sure you book parking as on street parking is impossible even in April. We didn't have breakfast preferring to collect croissants from the local baker and eat them watching the surfers.

Good location. Short walk to the city center or beaches. Friendly welcome thanks to reception staff Yann and Dorine. Renovated and very clean room with all required amenities. We booked the room with breakfast buffet. The buffet contains a selection of regional products which we really liked. Breakfast ist generous and the staff keeps the buffet in top shape. Quiet area at night so one can have a good rest even though there are a couple of bars close by. This hotel offers a really good value for the product and services offered.
