The Hotel Silhouette must be bespoke as it maintains its 19th century, grand home exterior, while the interior is entirely modern and updated. The open reception, dining and bar area is bright, trendy and features avant-garde art work and opens up to a delightful shaded courtyard. The rooms are spacious, very comfortable and clean and keep to the current feel... More

My husband and I had the great pleasure of staying one night in 'Hotel de Silhouette' while on a flying visit through Biarritz. We both truly wished we could have stayed longer - both city and hotel were FABULOUS!! We arrived in Biarritz (from Bordeaux) around lunchtime with no place to stay the night. After inquiring at a few places... More

We stayed two nights in July 2014. It was tricky getting the car into the car park: and when we checked in we were sold a far more expensive room than we had booked. But the room we took was a delight, with ocean view and generousish balcony for two chairs. We had breakfast over the road because the hotel... More

Although the location is very good( exactly opposite of the covered market), and the stuff was very helpful and kind, the room did not even have natural light. The standards for the room were very low regarding space and being so close to the sea, pay a high amount and not even see the sun( let alone the sea), is... More

Loved it, Loved it, Loved it. Would I return ABSOLUTELY. The location is fabulous, the staff are fantastic and the rooms are lovely. We have stayed in this lovely little hotel on two occasions now and both times there have been different staff to greet us and both times those members of staff were exceptional.

The Hotel is a beautiful old building with a pleasant garden and small car park, it has been completely modernised to a high standard; decoration is very contemporary. No sea view but only 5 mins walk from the beach. The hotel is directly opposite Biarritz's lovely market and surrrounded by great bars, cafes and restaurants. The staff were all very... More

Once a little French Chateau - now an exquisite beautifully renovated 20 bedroom hotel. Our welcome by David on reception was warm and friendly - we had a late flight in to Biarittz from London Gatwick and were tired and hungry. David said - 'We have been expecting you!' ha ha :) The room we were given was spotless, beautifully... More

fab hotel, second time we've stayed here and both times we weren't disappointed. Rooms were modern with all the mod cons and is in a great location close to beach and town centre. Best thing about this hotel though are the staff who went out of their way to make sure our stay was memorable. Recommend it

Stayed there twice now - this time for 5 nights as a post work trip wind down. Great spot in the middle of town with a courtyard restaurant with entertainment in the evenings. Step right out the front driveway into the bustling market and shops of old Biarritz and just a couple minutes to beaches that surround the north, west... More
