Lancashire Bikers found ideal hub for Pyrenees our scurries into the Pyrenees I was concerned that the area around the hotel might be a little built up. It was, but this never felt like a disadvantage with everything we wanted close by. There was a supermarket round the corner to buy food for the day and a garage close by to refuel. We tended to eat in town which as a previous writer has said was only 10 minutes away on the No. 7 bus and the bus stop was again just round the corner.
We have to make special mention of the family who own the hostel. From the moment we arrived we knew we were in good hands. Jaione explained that they did not work on a Sunday (our arrival day) but that if we called her when we knew we were near she would come out to meet us - which is exactly what she did. Not only that, recognising we were hot and tired after our first day's riding we were soon furnished with a nice cold beer in a frosted glass. The first of many!
The overall quality of the hostel is excellent. The rooms are modern, clean and functional with snug but completely adequate bathrooms. Downstairs there is a bar with cafe style eating area for the regular customers and passing trade with a patrons restaurant area further inside. Breakfast can be continental or full English if required. We ate in the restaurant on our last night and found the three course meal of surprisingly high quality, especially the onion soup which was a family recipe.
Our special thanks to all the family when my wife came off her bike and ended up in hospital. Everyone was so kind and wanted to help in any way they could from organising taxis to the local hospital to helping to explain to the local pick up truck where our bike had been left when it came off the road.
Genuinely could not recommend this hostel more highly for what we wanted and would like to think that we will find a reason to return.
