We arrived in the pouring rain with a dripping dog and were made most welcome in this rather plush hotel. We agree with a previous reviewer that the room was 'cosy', but I think that this goes with the unique character of the building and the region. Everything was spotless, the decor lovely, and I can't fault it. I too... More

On arrival we were impressed but we were staying in the older part of the hotel which was dated. Room was small, no air conditioning and no fans available. Bathroom tiny i am small and could barely turn around in the shower. No facilities like fridge or tea & coffee in room. What was really shocking is we tried to... More

Historic hotel that hid escaping resistance fighters in WW2, tremendous grounds overlooking Spain. Our room was on the small side with a corner cut out for a plastic shower room, but we were warned. Service and food wonderful, just a little too far to walk to the Hendaye coast, no clear quiet pedestrian route. But tranquil yet close to all... More

The hotel is very modern (though in an older style traditional Basque building) with a lift and automatic lights in the corridor. Our room was spacious and the shower room was beautifully done. The wif-fi didn't reach the room but worked OK in the bar after the girl told us which router to connect to. We ate out on the... More

Jardins de Bakea is a very comfortable hotel situated in a picturesque village just on the French side of the border with Spain. We have stayed here several times on our way to or from Spain and have always been made very welcome by Corinne and the staff. The rooms are pleasant and well equipped; some face the gardens and...

On the whole, we were delighted with the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful; the room was well furnished and equipped, clean and welcoming. Breakfast exceptional. Location wonderful. Disappointing that internet didn't work in bedroom and only intermittently downstairs - although the owner very kindly offered her own laptop. Biggest issue though is that, having paid 30 euros a...

We stayed four nights at this superb establishment. We had booked four but actually arrived a day early by making a phone call before we arrived they managed to fit us in a night early without any fuss and without changing rooms. The rooms were of a reasonable size with good size bathrooms very well set out with everything you... More

My wife and I have now stayed here 4 times - twice for a week each. The greatest attraction here is Eric Duval's fantastic cooking - the very best of classic French cuisine - and the extensive and fascinating wine list.

We have stayed four times at Jardins de Bakea as it is perfectly positioned for those travelling, like us, through France towards Portugal. Although only a mile or so off the busy motorway it is situated in a tranquil Basque village overlooking the wooded mountains across the river into Spain.
