We stayed at he hotel for 2 nights in the end of june 2010. We had a family room and was surprised of the space. In fact it was 2 connected room each with bathroom. The staff was very friendly, the room very clean and the breakfast was excellent. Carpark in the backyard. Short walt to the centre of Biarritz.

We really appreciate your comments. From your last visit to Biarritz, we renovated all the hotel and added 20 rooms in the building in front, still with the same uncluttered design that reminds you of the close ocean. Located only 10 minutes to the city centre and the beach, our guests really appreciate doing everything walking. The carpark is indeed very useful during summer, when parking in town is far from being easy. Unfortunately, we don’t have much parking space so booking it is highly recommended. We hope to see you soon in Biarritz, best regards.

Easy to find, near to beaches and town centre. Friendly welcome. Secure parking at rear(charge) Excellent bathroom and shower, separate W.C. No mirror in bedroom. A bit noisy when guests leaving early one morning. Breakfast fine. Free use of computer and internet was welcome. Staff most helpful even on departure. Very pleased overall

Welcoming our guests the best way we can is one of our top priorities. Although the parking at rear is not free of charge, we think it is really useful to avoid the puzzle of having to park in town, especially during summer. We are very sorry for the noise you heard one morning and we hope that it didn’t spoil your stay. We will be very glad to welcome you if you come back to Biarritz one day.

A very nice modern hotel with very helpful staff. The rooms where some of the better I stayed at in this price range and you get good value for your money. Our room had separate toilette and bathroom, where the latter included an extra large shower.

The hotel is a five min walk from the closest beach and 10 min walk from the shopping streets.

If there was something I missed in the room it where the fact that there where no fridge where you cold keep your breakfast and drinks cool.

Our staff is very pleased to hear you positive comments. We always do our best to satisfy our guests during their stay, offering a warm welcome and the best quality of services. We could have kept your drinks and things in the fridge of the hotel. However, we recently renovated the hotel and some of our rooms are equipped with mini-bar in a fridge. We would be very pleased to welcome you on your next stay in the Basque Country.

our stay at Kemaris was over 2 night period and everyone in our party would only praise this hotel as the staff were more than friendly (as we only spoke English) couldn't fault the rooms - clean, tidy and well appointed. All fittings were contemporary design and there was plenty of space in room. The location was perfect for the price as it was only a short walk to city centre and beaches. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel and would have no hesitation booking there again. The 12 Euro hot breakfast was plentiful with adequate selection.

I picked this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and am very happy with my choice. It is a relatively small, very modern hotel about 10 mins walk from both the beaches and the centre of town. Has onsite parking for about 10 Euros a day and the breakfast, which is pretty good, is about 12 Euros. Staff were very friendly and gave lots of directions/restauarant recommendations. The room was very white and very minimalist, not massive but a decent size. Great shower in the bathroom but no bath, which may be an issue for those that like them. Only problem was the heat. We had our baby sleeping in a travelcot with us and so take a room/bath thermometer with us - it was about 24 degrees inside the room and there was no aircon. We had to open all the windows, which was ok but there was a bit of noise from some nearby parties. Free internet in the room - one bonus was that they have a cable you can plug into your computer - great for us as the wifi on our laptop had been playing up on the trip.

We thank you for your comments and your remarks. We always try to give you the best services and good recommendation for dinner and leisure in Biarritz or its surroundings. The breakfast is made of fresh and local product (bacon, scrambled eggs, fruits, juices, cakes, fresh bread and croissants…). With regard to the problem you had with the heat, you can be sure that we solved it: we installed the air conditioning in all the rooms of the hotel after having a lot of remarks from our guests. We wish you will come back to visit us soon, regards.

Beautiful Biarritz houses around though the hotel building itself is quite ordinary looking. Tasteful recent renovation. Great location. Ten minutes walk to center and a real Biarritz feeling in the area. Got the family room, two communicated rooms with two bathrooms (and a great shower in the parents room)!! We were not so lucky being in the first floor overlooking the parking lot. The room was terribly hot and being right on the parking lot, it did not seem very safe to open our windows and make the room available for anyone. Reception staff was extremely nice and helpful. Free parking available in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor.

We stayed at the Best Western Kemaris in Biarritz for 9 days in August! I booked the hotel after finding it on the internet, the photos of the hotel looked great and it was just as great live! The hotel is funky and modern yet cosy, the rooms were fresh and trendy and the family accomodation was perfect, a parents room with en suite bathroom and kids room adjoining also with an en suite bathroom. The breakfast was really good, lots of fresh fruit etc and staff very helpful. The hotel isn`t on the beachfront but beaches and restaurants are a 10 minute walk away. The good thing about not being right in the centre is it is quiet at night. The hotel also has it`s own parking which was very convienient! Always nice to arrive at a hotel and find it is just as good as the photos online! We will be back!

We really appreciate your comments and hope you will really come back one day in Biarritz. The neighborhood where the hotel is located is very quiet, whereas it is near the city centre (10 minutes walking to the shopping area and to the main beach of Biarritz). We always try to offer the best quality products for breakfast (fresh scrambled eggs, ham, cheese, bacon, fruit, bread, croissant…) to make certain you leave us with good memories.
