A nice breakfast dinner and evening meal available and although the staff were rushed of their feet they were very helpful. A recommended comfortable stay in a stunning area of France... More

If you come here, it is probably because you walk the trans-Pyrennean hiking path GR10. Then any hotel, particulary one with a bar and an expresso machine, is paradise. The hotel is in the tiny hamlet Gabas, up in a valley, surrounded by forests and majestic mountains. The service was good, the food was all right. The room was spacey... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in June. It was exactly what we wanted: a simple, unpretentious, almost old-fashioned family run hotel where you get a warm welcome, and help with any difficulties (eg our hired car broke down). It's blissfully quiet with only the music of the cow bells and the river below day and night, and gorgeous views... More

Virtually from the moment we arrived the staff were unfriendly and the place felt neglected but it was late we were tired and we didn't feel like looking further. We should have! This place rates as the most uncomfortable experience of our month in the south of France. It's not a popular tourist town and it shows. It doesn't take... More

Gabas is a tiny village not far from the France/Spain border. Hotel Biscau is small and simple, delightfully catching the atmosphere of the area. My room was completely refreshed, rather bare, but with a surprisingly generous bathroom. The window looked out over the Pyrenees. Staff were courteous and friendly. Demi-pension cost me 57 euros. There was no choice for dinner... More

We stayed here for one night only due to a small emergency. We were very pleased to get a room, and the room was comfortable and clean for which we were very grateful. Most other aspects of the hotel were unexceptional.
