Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for one night. I was lucky enough to be able to access my room early - and which was great because it was raining, and kept raining most of the day. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was spacious - and comfortable - but could have been cleaned a little better. The difficulty with cleaning may have been partially due to the age of the building and the dated decor. Overall though, bookings are I enjoyed my stay - the rain stopped on day two. The breakfast was better than I expected. The location of the hotel was very convenient to all the sights in Bayonne.

Elegant building with a nice lobby. The restaurant is well designed and airy with orangery roof. The lift is a fabulous original type which I thought was great. The rooms are big and spacious but the decor is tired and is crying out for investment. The reception staff were excellent and could not be more helpful. Overall and good stay.

Just checked in and they call this a 4 star hotel, I would say 2 stars at best. Carpets are stained and smell, bathrooms are very old. The front desk is nice, beds are comfortable. However this hotel has seen better days, I would not recommend it. It needs a renovation badly.

Le Grand is a well located city centre hotel, and has no restaurant. Parking is available at a price in a near bye private multi storey. Rooms are large with traditional decoration and furniture. Staff service was solid.

For over the last 2 years I've spent 2 to 3 days per week in this hotel. Everything was excellent: the receptionist is professional and welcoming, the rooms are clean and tidy, you've got a large breakfast choice and the staff is at your service. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have home like-good night-sleep.

Location in Bayonne among a few shops and cafes. Not a particularly convenient with areas for strolling and shopping but the hotel was clean and very comfortable. It is basically a comfortable city hotel.

Lovely hotel in Grand Bayonne. The hotel is within walking distance of the major sites in town, many restaurants, and the train station. The rooms are pretty large, and there is a nice buffet breakfast available. There is a cage elevator, that is actually pretty large by European standards. Great place to stay, would not hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed here in 2002 and always wanted to return. Well, we are not disappointed. As good if not better now. Lovely helpful reception staff. Comfortable, clean room. Good private facilities. Free WiFi. Only downside parking in carpark nearby at €16 per day. Good buffet breakfast. Excellent location. Lots of bars/restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommended.

This hotel is lying in the center of beautiful Bayonne, and is within walking distance of the railway station. The room I got was large, with a large bathroom and a bed which was broader than it was long. The bed could easily have fitted 3 persons. I also appreciated the tea-cooker and the minibar. Breakfast was very good, with freshly pressed orange juice, fruits, yoghurt and most of what you need for breakfast - even pancakes. The staff was helpful and gave good advise for places to eat.

Great decent-sized rooms by European standards, and has an elevator. Large bathroom with a bathtub. Nice and clean rooms and hotel, with pleasant staff who were helpful and obliging. Decent spread of breakfast with the usuals; cheese, cold cuts, sausages, croissants etc.
