We stayed here as a stopover on our way to the south. The hotel was easy to find and near the highway. The hotel offers free, spacious parking and free wifi. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was spacious. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was good. Only disadvantage I can think of was the limited number of power plugs.... More

We stopped at this hotel on our way back from the South of France before catching the ferry from Santander to Portsmouth. The location is excellent - just off the main motorway - it does take a bit of finding (it's down a little side road towards the beach) but I get the feeling the signage will be slowly improved...

This was a very well located and good value for money stop over in our journey between the UK and Portugal. We were pleasantly surprised by the efficiency of the reception staff who were so helpful and polite when they swiftly checked us in. We had a family room which was splotlessly clean and had everything we needed - comfortable... More

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

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

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
