This is the perfect place to stop for a night if on the move. It is easy to find just off the motorway and the rooms are functional but comfortable. We were worried about the closeness of the motorway to our room but we didn't hear a thing with the windows closed and good airconditioning. However our stay was made... More

I've stayed in this hotel now on 3 occasions as a single night stopover with my wife and 3 kids. Hotel is very well maintained, spotlessly clean has comfortable beds and after a longs days drive the hotel is absolutely perfect to bed down in for the night. We stay here as its almost exactly half way been out ferry... More

We stayed here for 2 nights after having driven from sunny and warm Oliva in Spain to a cold and cloudy St Jean de Luz. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Asked for extra pillow and blankets which we got immediately and even offered to give us electric radiators for our rooms which we declined. Rooms very clean and beds very... More

Stayed in a family room, hotel is close to the motorway, but also close the the town and the beach 5mins by car. We also stayed at the Arena hotel in bordeaux on the way both... More

We were travelling further into France and stayed here for an overnight stop. Check in was straight forward. Location convenient for purpose but would not recommend for a longer stay as there is nothing much around the hotel. Family rooms are well appointed with bunk beds for our children aged 11 and 12. Room was modern, with all the basics... More

This is an out of town hotel but the benefit is the big car park, also an open space where our dog could have a run. It wasn't as close to beaches as I expected - about 6-7 minutes in the car. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room was on the small side but so clean we thought... More

This was ideal for our 2 nights in St Jean de Luz: good value and ample free parking. The room was quite compact but the beds were comfortable and the shower room well designed with a decent size shower cubicle. The staff were very helpful and spoke good English - they offered to lend my husband a lap top so... More

Ths is a band new hotel. The rooms are not huge but we had a family of 4 with two kids 8 & 10 in bunks and a queen for us and didn't feel cramped at all. Large flat screen tv, free wifi, cheap and very good French breakfast, I really struggled to find fault. The staff were friendly, accommodating... More
