location and staff really helpful
The room was bright and airy and the owners very friendly. Situated in the middle of the little town it was easy access to restaurants and only a short drive from a large supermarket.
The hotel was not as close to the beach as described.
Good location, welcoming hosts. Well decorated, clean and spacy rooms. Parking next to hotel (free between 19.00-09.00).
If room faced to the street - it can be rather noisy.
The accommodation had excellent facilities and was spacious. The owners were very helpful. The hotel was situated in the centre of the village and was close to several restaurants of excellent quality.
Very central to Bidart centre. Clean and welcoming. Great to have parking at reasonable price.
Friendly owners, happy to assist in any way; local attractions, directions, local knowledge etc. This charming family also run a Breton style restaurant serving Breton cuisine. Breakfasts were very good quality and value. Rooms were serviced and tidied daily and always impeccable.Convenient location in a charming town with something going on in town most nights.
Helpness and friendliness of proprietor and his wife
Friendly & accommodating staff; accommodation was large and user friendly; half hour drive to Spain & other villages & hamlets in the Pays Basque.
The hotel was clean and quiet and comfortable; generally the staff were lovely, particularly the proprietor's son, who was very friendly and went out of his way to help, even booking taxis etc.
The hotel itself was perfect, but the proprietor was quite gruff with us on the last two nights of our stay. He was not at all friendly, telling us only to make sure we had checked out by eleven the next morning, not even asking us if we had had a pleasant stay. His aggressive attitude gave a sour taste to an otherwise relaxed and agreeable stay.
