We stayed here for 5 nights in June. It was exactly what we wanted: a simple, unpretentious, almost old-fashioned family run hotel where you get a warm welcome, and help with any difficulties (eg our hired car broke down). It's blissfully quiet with only the music of the cow bells and the river below day and night, and gorgeous views... More

Virtually from the moment we arrived the staff were unfriendly and the place felt neglected but it was late we were tired and we didn't feel like looking further. We should have! This place rates as the most uncomfortable experience of our month in the south of France. It's not a popular tourist town and it shows. It doesn't take... More

Gabas is a tiny village not far from the France/Spain border. Hotel Biscau is small and simple, delightfully catching the atmosphere of the area. My room was completely refreshed, rather bare, but with a surprisingly generous bathroom. The window looked out over the Pyrenees. Staff were courteous and friendly. Demi-pension cost me 57 euros. There was no choice for dinner... More

I came across this hotel when looking for somewhere to stay close to le Petit Train D'Artouste. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The accommodation was excellent - in fact the most comfortable bed I have slept in during a years' stay in France!! The ensuite was large and both bedroom and bathroom were very clean and beautifully presented.... More

We stayed for 4 nights, half board. Our room was clean and comfortable and food delicious. Reasonably priced. It's location provided a good base for exploring the mountains around. Beautiful and quiet spot.

We stayed here for one night only due to a small emergency. We were very pleased to get a room, and the room was comfortable and clean for which we were very grateful. Most other aspects of the hotel were unexceptional.

We stayed in this hotel/restaurant one night before going to the train d'Artouste. 66 euros for a beautifully revamped bedroom with separate toilet and bathroom in the room. No TV yet, but we weren't here to watch the TV. Dinner at the hotel, ok but nothing exceptionnal; the young waitress didn't know much about the menu. Nice local cheeses for... More
