the food was very good but not excellent. The staff in general were good but one girl let the team down. The room in the hotel was great, no bad comments at all!!!

Room was small. Shower not very user friendly..Service fair. Food good but don't understand the Michelin stars , not worthy. Of the hype.

I read about the restaurant and inn in a NY Times article, and my mother and I made a point of experiencing both on a recent trip to the Bordeaux area of southwestern France. It was everything I'd hoped it would be and more. The setting is a fairy tale, the service was superb, but most of all the meal... More

We took the degustation menu. It was beautifully prepared and presented, but I probably wouldn't do it again. Very expensive, and for me had too many flavours fighting for top position. Something a little more simple - but that's just me.

Dinner, as always, was superb. The food is imaginative with tremendous taste. The local wines were wonderful. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful.

We were completely taken aback by our stay at this wonderful place! Located away from the frenetic coastal towns overflowing with summer crowds, the Auberge Basque sits quietly at the top of a hill with a gorgeous mountain vista and lush gardens to loll about in. The room we had was on the small side (one of the rooms with... More

Lovely location and grounds. Wonderful breakfast- but we did have to persuade them to give us breakfast included as we had paid for it and it was on our paperwork and not on theirs. I think we were given the disabled room downstairs. it was quite small and had rather a strangely organised wet room which didn't really slope to... More
