“Great Base for Cycling & Hiking”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

We stayed at the Primerose for 10 days in Aug-Sept 2011 and had a fantastic time. Aside from being a perfect location for cycling the famous climbs of the Tour de France and great hiking, Philippe and his staff were awesome. We chose the half-board option and were very pleased with the willingness to accommodate our vegetarian needs. We certainly did not go hungry! Philippe provided lots of good info on the cycling routes and also loaned us 4 different hiking guides. The secure storage room is great for hanging your bike and storing your travel case and accessories. Our room was great - better than a standard 2 star. All in all, a recipe for a great trip.

This is a great hotel in a great location, particularly for our puposes. Philippe and his staff run a fantastic service and could not have been more helpful. We were on an annual road bike trip and, as a base for this, it was perfect. Good food (and lots of it), bike security and advice re routes, food stops etc. Hotel is very relaxed; rooms are very clean and comfortable; location is ideal for the town and the hills. Expect to return here in a year or 2.

This friendly hotel is well above the standard of your average 2 star hotel. The hospitality is excellent. Philippe, the manager, looks after everyone very well. We had half board and with all the tables being close together in the dining room, it makes for a good atmopshere, the opportunity to chat to fellow guests and practise your French. The food was plentiful and good. The rooms are a little old fashioned but adequate. Try and get one with a balcony.

When we stayed in the hotel, there was a mixture of cyclists, walkers and people who had just come to enjoy the wonderful scenery that the region has to offer. Argeles-Gazost itself is a small, unspoilt and very pretty French town and is perfect for touring the whole region. The walks are superb. Apart from the obvious places like Gavarnie, Lac d'Estaing, Pont d'Espagne, Lac de Gaube and the Col d'Auisque, make sure you do the beautiful walk to the Lac d'Estoum from La Fruitière just outside Cauterets - a favourite with the locals. Another must is the little village of St Savin which is just outside Argeles
If you are staying on a bed and breakfast basis there are not many restaurants to choose from in Argeles. We went out 1 evening to Le Bellevue just off the main square and were not very impressed. The food was better in the hotel.

The hotel is excellent located for all people that love to cycle...
Houtacam, Aubisque, Tourmalet, Aspin, Luz Ardidenne,... are all very near...

The hotel and his excelent host, Philippe, is focussed on cyclers and we, the ten guys of the Foederer Cycling Team 2009, enjoyed our stay !
The village center with a few nice cafés is also very near ... (we like that too ;-))
