“Convenient hotel in pleasant resort”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Stayed for one week as part of a large party on a Travel Editions holiday. The hotel seemed to be sparsely staffed, though service didn't really suffer. Our bedroom was sufficiently large, the bathroom well appointed and the room quiet despite being ground floor. No room safe, but free access to general lock-up facility. We never saw the bar open at all, but the large restaurant was well managed and offered a basic 3 course + wine menu for less than 13 Euros - not for gourmets but good value. Difficult to see any private parking - we had a coach for daily outings.

Room Tip: Lower floors are no handicap.

We were there as a group for one night on June while a trip to the north of Spain. The hotel is located near the marvelous seashore so you can enjoy the spectacular sunset there. The reception floor was nicely decorated. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable but everything was minimal. In the bathroom there was no soap and there was no place to hang towels. There was only one blanket for two persons. There were no tea/coffee accessories in the room. The dining room was fine and inviting and the food was varied and tasty. If you search for an hotel only to sleep and eat basic food – it's fit you, and the perfect place compensates you.

Room Tip: If you want tea/coffee in the room - you must bring it by yourself.

We stayed here on a recent tour with relatives to the Basque country (two couples). The rooms were adequate and very clean but the bathroom, we stayed in, was not up to modern day standards - free soap and shampoo does not make up for a bath and shower which lacks modern day conveniences expected by mature tourists. Whilst the double glazed windows were great the walls and ceiling lacked any decent sound proofing. If you are a light sleeper be aware that you may pass the night to a chorus of chatting and snoring coming at you from around your room, a bit like surround sound. I can only think that an end room at the top of the hotel may be your best best or ask for a room where the adjoining rooms are empty.

The reception/ground floor of the hotel was nicely decorated and the day reception staff and dining room staff were friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. It is almost impossible to get a drink after dinner as the bar was closed and the night reception man was not keen to provide us with two beers. This was a pity as the area is very suitable for a quiet!! drink.

If you like nice food I suggest you skip the menus in the restaurant "St Barbara". They are cheap and nasty and of course, very cheap.

Parking was not a problem around the hotel and the area is well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Skip the dining room try the "Beach Cafeteria" for breakfast, great coffee, croissants and...

A 36 hour outing to explore a bit beyond San Sebastian with an overnight. High Season at end of July and a Sunday so massive traffic. Parking issues until a large parking area discovered. Then very tricky to negotiate solar powered computer driven meter in Basque language.....great beach...fascinating town....hotel comfortable and friendly....restaurant offered a Sunday dinner of 3 courses and bottle of red wine for E12.90....great value....parking is limited at hotel so street parking required and between 15 June and 15 September the tricky meters.... try to avoid first floor room at front as if hot and without air conditioning there will be noise from traffic and potential late street revellers.....

We stayed here for a week whilst exploring the Basque Country. Our room was clean and comfortable with plenty of storage space. An arm chair would have been useful though. The bathroom was spotlessly clean. All staff members were pleasant and helpful, and most spoke good English. There was free WiFi, but the signal was often weak. However this was not really a problem as there is a computer booth for guest use. The restaurant is closed on Sundays during the low season (ie up to the first Sunday in June), but there are bars and cafes in the old town or in Getaria (two stops on the bus) or in San Sebastian a few miles away and accessible by train. The food can hardly be described as 'fine dining', but a three course meal with bread and wine costs less than £13 from the menu of the day.
Guests staying on a room only basis can purchase an 'eat as much as you like' continental breakfast for £4.50 or for an extra £3 can also have cold meats, cheese and fried eggs. I would definitely stay there again.

Used this Hotel as a Stop-over en route fron Southern Spain to the UK. Very friendly staff, check in very speedy. Room on the Top Floor with views across the Town and Mountains, very comfortable with excellent Beds.
One minor 'niggle' - on the night we stayed the Restaurant was Closed although nothing to say this was the 'norm', just seemed as though this particular 'closure' was at short notice as there had been a Private Function during the afternoon.
Plenty of good Eateries in the Town or on the nearby Sea front though.
Will certainly use this Hotel again.

Room Tip: Check the Restaurant will be open when you Check in.

Really good value hotel. We stayed overnight in this hotel en-route to France and it represented great value for the price. We are a family of 5 and the hotel had a room to accommodate all of us in one room, none of this booking two rooms. They also allow pets and we were able to have our dog in the room with us. The hotel is very easy to find from the motorway - just come off at junction 11 and head into the town centre, you will see the hotel on your left. With its free private parking to the rear of the hotel travelling with the car was no problem. The staff were friendly and helpful, all spoke English as well, even though we speak Spanish. The room was clean and spacious had it's own en-suite, great with the family. We ate in the hotel in the evening and had an excellent meal, even the kids menu was great value - and they ate proper food, no nuggets / burger / pizza here.The town of Zarautz seemed very relaxed and safe - child & pet friendly. The hotel is less than a 5 minute walk from the beach at Zarautz with it cafes on the sea front as well. I would imagine that this hotel would be a good base to explore the Basque area of Spain, it is only minutes from San Sebastian, about 20 minutes from Bilbao and about 15 minutes from the French border. I would recommend this hotel. No swimming pool, but with the beach a few minutes walk away do you need one?
