From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The receptionist spoke perfect English but was happy for me to try my broken Spanish and one word of Basque. Triple room was comfortable and large with a great shower. Wifi worked and everything was as it was on the website. We ate both nights in the cafeteria: not... More

This is a lovely hotel in Spain near Irun and the French border situated 20 kms inland set in the mountains and forest. Good new connecting road so no problem. The receptionist who spoke English was very friendly and efficient. I was given a large modern bedroom on the 2nd floor with a great view of the river and hills... More

I just spent one night in this hotel near the French border. It's quite typical with its old walls made of local stones, old wooden decoration inside, the kids loved it. The restaurant offers a really cheap menu of the day (3 course) for 12€ including drinks ! Quality food but really salty and you have to love garlic :)... More

Another stay at the Etxalar Hotel with friends. The staff were very friendly, as usual. We ate in each evening, 3 course meal and free wine and free water, all for 10.50 Euro! Excellent food, cannot fault anything. My friends will be back in September, and I will return soon.

To start off I want you to get a background of my experience, I motorcycled all the way from London to Gambia and met and experienced true human kindness till I got to this place which marred my 6 week tour. This place was awful, I arrived late around 11pm on motorcycle after travelling 300miles. Hoping to take shelter from... More

My last review here was some time ago, although we stay often, so I thought an update was needed. My wife and I stayed in room 211 on the 9th July 2012, and again last night 23rd July 2012 in room 214.Both of these rooms have a Huge USA size King bed, and balcony. What a difference in the weather!... More

With friends, I stayed the second time in the past 8 months, we love this hotel. Very traditional building, large rooms and ours had a balcony, with the sounds of the river rushing by outside. Don`t be put off by a `motorway` across the road, it never intrudes. We ate each night, 3 courses, including wine, was just 9.50 Euros,... More

We have been using this Hotel for years as being a days drive (500 miles) from our Spanish home it's a day away in either direction. This is a traditional Spanish hotel with friendly multi-lingual staff who are very efficient (if a little slow). The building is stone built and solid, the rooms modern clean and well above what you... More

The food is fine and interium great. This is all ok for spanish speaking travellers passing by. The village of Etxalar is worth to visit. We tryed to find... More
