We were welcomed by a lovely lady on reception who gave us a map and directed us to various places of interest and the shortest way to the seafront! She is a real asset to the hotel, and her English was very good! The room and bathroom were fresh and clean and the large balcony with a seaview was lovely.... More

An older property which has an odd layout of rooms. Our room, with a small balcony overlooking the car park was nicely decorated in white with fresh citrusy green accents, however, the two single beds which had been pushed together to make a double were not very comfortable. The shower room was small, with nowhere to hang towels and the... More

We loved this hotel. Upon check-in we were warmly greeted by staff and then given a map with a complete explanation for a wonderful hike down to the sea and around the city. We also received a good recommendation for seafood and gorgeous seaside location. Yes, it is a hike down to the ocean and back, but not long and... More

there is a to wide variety between Best Western Hotels and that is not good. This hotel however is quite nice. Fresh white rooms (hard to maintain but done very well) good beds, good breakfast. If only they had a bar that would be open after 9 pm to relax.....free parking, free wifi.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it is off the beaten path. A bit of a walk to the beach, uphill the entire way back and also about 10 min walk to the major shopping area. The room was small, but cute. The bathroom was recently renovated and was huge (almost the size of the room). The staff was... More

We would liketo thank you warmly for your kind comment. We offer different range of rooms : some are smaller than others, depending on the room rate.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights - first impression was favourable with the reception staff being very helpful (especially when Air France cancelled my flight the night before I was due to fly out!) and they also had a good sense of humour. The room was nice and the bathroom had a great shower and was very modern.... More

Thanks for your warm comments ! We are really happy to hear our hotel and staff pleased you ! Although the hotel is not located right in the city centre, the nearest beach is very close (« La Côte des Basques ») and it’s true that there is a free shuttle bus during the high season.

We stopped at the Best Western Kemaris for one night after taking a ferry from Portsmouth (UK) to Santander (Spain) and driving up the coast. We arrived fairly late but the friendly concierge was waiting for us and gave us our key which let us access the small car park at the back. (The security light out there is not... More

I stayed with a friend in what they called their smallest room - while it was indeed very small the room was impeccably clean, our terrace was nice and large, and staff friendly and helpful. Only ten minutes from the beach and 5 from Les Halles with great restaurants.
