“Breathtaking View”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Went with my wife in 1st week of November/11, for 1 night and stayed for 3, but would have loved to stay longer. Our visit coincided with the 2011 French Surf Championship and we had a free show from our 4th floor room window. The hotel is one of the best located in the center of Biarritz, great shopping, restaurants, a Casino(not my choice of vacationing, but an interesting site), and plenty of ocean-walking tracks.
From the hotel we made base to visit San Sebastian and Bilbao in Spain, which are right next door. You could practically go every day for lunch or dinner and have a great time joining the "Tapas" crowd, you'll love it!!!
The hotel was excellent, and rooms, brand new, clean, and a spectacular view. An Ocean-view room, is a must for the Nature lovers, and price was very reasonable.

Room Tip: Ocean view 3rd floor and up.

we stayed 2 weeks in this hotel. we had a wonderful room on the 6th floor with a side ocean view (although we paid only for a street view). it was gorgeous to see the ocean from the room in the morning when you get up. the hotel in the whole is very clean. it was a 3 stars hotel, now it has 4 stars, and they really do their best to make this hotel a nice place to stay. only 1 minute to the central beach and 2 minutes to the casino. bus station in the near (a very good bus connection to the airport, train station and bayonne ). the rooms are very quiet with a very good design, everything what you need. bathroom equipment of a very good quality and new. the personal was very friendly and always answered all our questions. the check in only 1 minute, a nice woman showed us to our room. we had a breakfast and we really liked it: a typish french breakfast. there is nothing bad what can i say about this hotel, it was really a very good choice!!!

This is a great hotel if you want a good room in a great location but it was pretty expensive and when we came (mid May) it didn't even have the bar open even though they said the hotel was fully booked! The website also gave you the impression that the hotel restaurant was on the main beach when in reality it is across the road and a bit disappointing but overal a great hotel and would return if I could get a better price!

We had a sea front view (in fact double aspect which was great for viewing the fireworks that took place during our stay) on 7th floor. 1 minute walk from hotel straight onto the beach. Room was on the small side given that we were three, but was clean, and the bathroom (shower and bath) all worked well. Staff both at reception and at breakfast were friendly - great coffee and croissants at breakfast. Public areas have some antique pieces of furniture, lift is small so sometimes quicker to walk. Good traditional restaurant that is part of the hotel is next door and does good seafood.

Stayed in this Hotel for 2 nights while we were travelling. The first night we stayed, which was during the week we got a lovely big room, lots of space, it was clean and there was no noise, the beds were comfertable. Courtyard View was a bit of a joke, we were on the basement floor looking up onto the street, there was no view.

On our last night of our holiday we booked in again to this hotel,this time got a poky, would not swing a cat in the room, it was clean but very old fashioned. There was a lot of noise that night from about 3 am to 7 am, phoned reception to be told they did not speak English. very frustrating, got no sympathy that morning when checking out.

Other than that, great breakfast, great location and the day staff was very nice and friendly. Its an ok Hotel for a short visit.

Found it very hard to get decent food in Biarritz, nobody spoke english so would recommend bringing a dictionary, the restaurant beside this hotel is expensive but the food is good and they have an English Menu which always helps. Found Biarritz expensive in general but a beautifull place to visit, great beach and lovely walks. Shopping also expensive.

Was very disappointed with the room. A double room with no room to swing a cat, unpleasant aroma, shappy interior and our courtyard view was of the fire escape staircase. I would not stay in the Windsor again and was glad to check out. The location was the only thing that made us not check out the minute we saw the room and we spent as much time away from the hotel that was possible during our stay in the beautiful Biarritz.

  • Disliked — The old decor and fusty smell.
