“Nice hotel conveniently situated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

The Grand Tonic is well situated close to the casino and Grand Plage with a free secure car park which was a plus. Warm welcome from friendly helpful staff.The bedroom and hotel in general were clean but a bit dated and in need of a facelift. Jacuzzi bath and bathrobes were a nice touch but would suit a bedroom with more space, light and comfy furniture to relax in. Wifi was erratic.
Overall, a nice hotel, good value and in the heart of Biarritz

We were happy with this hotel in most aspects.We stayed for 3 nights. Everything was very clean, happily. The only thing that we didn't like were the bath towels - they are not soft at all and very thin (don't soak up a lot of water). There wasn't a towel rack in our room. We used towel hooks to hang our towels and therefore they did not dry well.
The overall feel of the hotel is that it is an older property but it is still pleasing. The elevator is very slow and clunky. This can all be forgiven considering the great location of the hotel. It is one street back from the beach and only a few minutes walk to the centre.
The staff were nice and breakfast was quite good. We didn't have any other meals here.

the hotel is situated in a very central position, but as are windows were overlooking the yard, it was very quiet. the room was very big. bathroom and toilette were separate. the beds are very comfortable. the hotel was a bit old, but very clean, so that is why it was not a problem. we got a 50% deal from booking.com, so the price for a 4 starts hotel in biarritz (which is rather expressive) was also good. i can only recommend it.

Stayed in the Grand Tonic Biarritz 9th May three nights first thing that stuck me was, what a great location ! near beach, near centre, quiet street. Staff were a helpful and as friendly that I have ever come across.

Hotel was relaxed with a large room 411 with double aspect view was not great but a lot of hotels have restricted views in Biarritz. Food in the restaurant was excellent again the staff were friendly and attentive.

Rooms were clean and comfortable with dressing gowns and slippers, Breakfast was a bit expensive at 15 euro went to centre of town lots of restaurants serve breakfast less than five minutes walk away.

We had a great stay and will return again.

Room Tip: Upper floors end of corridor quiet and bright

The hotel is 3 minute walking distance from the city center and 1 minute from the beach. A nice modern hotel, and we even found parking space (that belongs to the hotel) in the back. Service and everything was pretty good.

Unlike other hotels, the walls between the rooms seem to be pretty thick and noise-blocking, but during the night we constantly heard the noises from the street below.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was amazing. Really comfortable, cozy and very convenient, bed's really soft. It is along 1 of the main streets, just across the road from La Grande Plage beach (2mins walk) although the view is blocked by the beachfront buildings. Surrounded by eateries, bars, shops, the bus station is just behind it as well. Bathtub comes with jacuzzi features, bathrobes provided too. It was low season when I visited so it was fairly quiet in Biarritz. Wifi works well but requires re-login registration after 4hrs or requires re-entry of details after being inactive for awhile which can be a little troublesome. But overall an awesome stay!
