This hotel is in a perfect location. With views of the ocean from the balcony it is very relaxing. The rooms are quite spacious and clean. I love the addition of a fridge and safe - something you don't find in France very often. Bedding is comfortable and the Windows cut out any street noise. Air con is good too.... More

Well located in a pedestrian square overlooking the main bay and next to church. Great 'key largo' interior design. Nautical, lime washed wood and textiles. More like home guest bedrooms than hotel. Very comfortable beds and bedding. Well appointed bathroom with good size bath although black bathroom tiles not my preference. Balcony with sea view lovely extra. Only downside very... More

We have stayed many times at this delightful and beautifully positioned hotel. The views over Biarritz bay are wonderful. The staff, especially those in reception, are professional, very welcoming and helpful - it makes you glad you chose this hotel for your stay. The rooms are spotless and there is a public car park immediately under the hotel, a great... More

A lovely traditional style hotel with recently decorated rooms. We were lucky to have a room at the front with balcony & great views. Staff were friendly & really helpful. Bar was good, restaurant OK but nothing special

We stayed at the hotel next door the last trip to Biarritz but we fancied a better view and we got one. I emailed ahead to ask for the best view room and the staff obliged us with room 18. Unfortunately, on arrival both the phone and the safe didn't work and we never actually got a working phone but... More

This small hotel has seen better days but it still has the great advantage of being located in a charming little square right by the ocean. The young man at the front desk, Yann, was very good at extending a warm welcome to us. For what it offered the hotel was terribly overpriced, however, with a very rigid cancellation policy....

Centrally placed, convenient for both the seafront and city shopping, yet in a quiet square this small hotel has many advantages. Admittedly it is a little dated and the room and bathroom we had were rather small but still comfortable and we were pleased with our choice. An advantage is that the hotel is almost above a multi-storey public car... More

Great location close to the beach and the cathedral overlooking a pedestrian square. Hand held shower, French language only TV, room rather small. Our window opened up into the interior shaft but that had a sitting area and was quiet so we didn't mind too much. Good value and great restaurant in lobby. Tiny elevator but that's typical of French... More

We had two rooms for one night, both really comfortably decorated, bit quirky, quite interesting, our room had a balcony but we regretted that later......the best thing is the setting, but you also pay for it, although you do that all over Biarritz. The service was good (although the food at lunchtime and for breakfast wasn't particularly special). Overall really... More

We stayed in the hotel in July 2015 and it is a great place with lovely attentive staff always happy to help. The hotel is situated in a local square just up from the beach so offers great views from the front of the hotel. The food is great and the restaurant is always packed! Would definately re visit and... More
