This hotel in various guises has been around a long time. Its current management is good. For a 2* place, its food is brilliant and great care is taken with service. We had a top floor small room with a balcony and view down the valley. Money has been spent: good TV, decent bathroom, WiFi everywhere, enlarged dining area with glorious picture windows.
This is a walkers hotel. They seem to accept short stay is the norm - but midweek it was busy and thriving - and deservedly so. Do not expect 'gold plate': remember it is 2*, but given how deep into the Pyrenees and Basque country this hotel is, it is very good indeed.
You WILL find niggles, lighting and furniture is minimal and tight, breakfast is a bit limited but lunch and dinner were superb. The staff were helpful with suggestions for knackering walks. Bathing water on your return is piping hot. Few English visit and we were made very welcome.
It is mid-priced for what it provides. Definitely worth a detour.
