On a motorcycle trip we needed a place to stay in the country, wow, what a find this place is!! The hospitality is top notch, so too is the restaurant, not a great variety but if you like meat, go for the rib eye, it's great. Rooms at the front of the Hotel have a spectacular view of the Picos... More

In the mountains with fantastic views, quiet and super comfortable, Ellauri has a great location: 30km from either Bilbao or Vitoria, and two national parks in vicinity. So we could combine visiting Bilbao and its spectacular Guggenheim museum, and hiking in beautiful national parks, or just relaxing in comfort of our spacious room, and enjoying great food and frendliness of...

This hotel is located in the mountains. The scenery is incredible. After a shower, we were treated to the biggest, brightest rainbow we have ever seen. The hotel has everything you could ask for and the food was wonderful.

When I say 'magical', I mean everything about this hotel! It seriously is a wonderful place to stay in every respect. I cannot understand why it is not full every night of the year, maybe just because there are too many people who are yet to discover what an amazing place the Basque Country is. We discovered this hotel as... More

This is a special place if you want to stay in the Basque countryside. Abutting rugged national parks, there are hiking and walking trails for every level, active nearby towns and early historic structures to explore. The Hotel is a well designed and impeccably maintained contemporary structure and you can sit on the deck and practically touch the sheep and... More

Thank you very much, Adam, for making public your excellent comment of our hotel and restaurant service. It has been a pleasure to meet a nice couple who enjoyed the simplest things we offer in this natural countryside of the Basque Country. The new lamb babies we were waiting have been born.

Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary visiting Basque Country and stayed 3 days at the Ellauri Hotel and everything exceeded our expectations. The charm of this place is hard to describe; modern design with just the right balance of seclusion and exposure to nature. It's also only approximately a 20 minute car ride to Guggenheim musseum, the quaint shops and dining... More

We went for our honeymoon and it was very romantic. The rooms were beuatifully designed and the hotel was very peaceful. The surroundings landscapes were amazing, mountains, fields, wildlife. The owners (kepa and randa) ran the hotel and were always there - very very helpful. Also, there were sheep, and a massive beautiful dog that we played with!!
