wanted to stay near Espelette to buy the famous peppers so picked this hotel because of the restaurant reviews. Really excellent food for the 20 euro fixed menu though there was a more expensive option and a la carte too. the fact that the place was full on a Monday evening in November says it all, The rooms were basic...

We stayed at the Hotel du Fronton 8 years ago and loved it so much we decided to go back. The hotel has now been extended with about 12 extra rooms in a brand new chalet called Agian just across the road. Our large tastefully decorated bedroom had a large comfortable bed, generous cupboards and a lovely bathroom fitted with... More

We stayed one night here, arriving on foot from our previous hotel (a walking holiday) We were really glad to find the room had an air-conditioning unit as the weather was very hot. The room decor was stylish and we had a small balcony which looked over the carpark towards the beautiful Pyrennean foothills. The bathroom was big. It was... More

Convenient location if a visit to the Pyrenees is on your agenda. The motel was clean and the staff were friendly even if they were a little more interested in watching their TV program than checking us in and made errors with our account on our departure,at least they happily corrected the error. We stayed 3 nights and it was... More

The hotel is located in the center of the village near the "Fronton" hence its name. Fronton is a wall against which the "Basque pelota" is played. You find them in most Basque villages. The "Hôtel du Fronton" is an old building (the walls and floors are not all leveled) with a lot of charm. For instance our bed was... More

The little town is also very... More

This hotel is a logis de france quietly situated in the peaceful, pretty village of Itxassou near Cambo les Bains so a good base for trips to Basque coast and into Pyrenees mountains. Fair-sized room/ bathroom with traditional furnishings.. fine for a few days. All guests were French during our visit ..usually a good sign. Right next to the pelota... More
