The hotel is very quiet and in a beautiful posotion overlooking the lake. The rooms and bar area are also very well furnished and the staff most welcoming.You can walk to the beach, round the lake and into Hossegor and I'm sure it would be lovely to sit by the pool in warmer weather than we had. We ate in the hotel on the first evening and the food was not good- a bit BrakeBrothers and this put us off eating breakfast there too- it was an international buffet style which one doesn't usually eat in France as lunch follows at mid-day!They said one could eat meals there but did not stress theydid not have a chef and it was just heated up. We did pass on these comments.
Friendly staff, fresh newly renovated room, big and very confortable bed, lovely quiet location, nice terrace. Room and bathroom were a bit small for a 4 stars hotel, no place to put the suitcases, no place to put the toiletries, the furniture was lovely but made for a room twice that size, deck chairs on terrace in need of refurbishment.
The location of the hotel and friendliness of staff is outstanding. The bathroom is too small for a 4 star hotel.
We were visiting family who live nearby. Very nice hotel,friendly atmosphere, would return there anytime. thanks for your assistance no, everything was really nice,
The hotel was absolutely beautiful but what stood out the most was the fantastic service. The man at reception ithink Robert was his name was so friendly and made us feel right at home! We will def be back!
The hotel is very stylish and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The situation was excellent- right on the edge of a lake and close to the beach. It takes about fifteen minutes to walk into Hossegor which has numerous cafes and shops (mostly aimed at wealthy young surfers!)
An item had been stolen from our room directly after having the room made up. After complaining to the front desk about this it was mysteriously returned to us the next day.
The location - immediately on the waterside - was excellent. Bed linen and bathroom were clean. Overall enjoyment was spoiled by: filthy windows (difficult to see out until we cleaned them ourselves); grubby upholstery and surfaces; some light bulbs inoperative/ missing; curtains grubby and badly hung like rags across the window; curtain pulls inoperative; and lack of bath mat, in small bathroom with open shower area. No guest feedback slips available. Overall, poorly presented.
The view from the room
the personal warm welcome of the owner and his staff and the location close to the village and close to the best beaches on a beautifull spot at the lake
The staff are excellent. The beds were uncomfortable, but for the price no complaints.
location it was in course of much needed renovation!
Pleasant and friendly staff in a nice location. The estuary view was fantastic and was great with the kids for crabbing. No
The staff was friendly , great walking area along scenic pathway . Large room . Uncomfortable Beds need to upgrade , felt budget !
the hotel is very well located and good value at the 40€ per night that we paid, however, we would have been disappointed had we paid the full price of 60 € +
Beautiful, tranquil location with view over the lake. Large, airy, comfortable room, friendly and helpful staff. The shower attachment was broken and there was a leak in the dining room but both are probably temporary probems and don't detract from overall quality of hotel.
location by lake good, food excellent restaurant closed earlier than desired
Lovely location and pleasant, comfortable fit out. Drinks on terrace in the evening a real treat. Some staff were efficient but not very friendly - perhaps the result of a long season
well situated for town centre and nearby amenities, with great view of the lagoon
The location is fantastic. You can walk to town or directly in front of the hotel.There is a path to jog/walk around this salt water lake connected to the ocean and you can admire the scenery at low and high tide. The service is nothing to write home about. The staff is indifferent at best. The restaurant is overpriced and so are the rooms for what you get.Bathroom fixtures are cheap, towels worn out and decoration leaves to be desired.
A very well run hotel on the edge of Hossegor Lake with beautiful views across the lake to give south west evening sun on the balconies and in the rooms.The management were particularly helpful at all times It was as described - a 3 star hotel on the edge of town & lake.
Great location on lake. Expensive breakfast
The view of the room to the lake was amazing. Expensive breakfast.
Overall the service was impeccable. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The quality and cleanliness of the rooms is second to none. I have stayed at this hotel before and will do again - I look forward to it. For some reason this time, the breakfast service was poor. The staff were 'distant' and seemed to be falling out amongst themselves. On one day, we didn't get our coffee for about 20 minutes and on another, the restaurant ran out of plates, so people were putting bread, cooked breakfast etc in a cereal bowl. There seemed to be no urgency, nor desire to provide a good service. This was a pity and contrary to every other service in the hotel.
Everything the service and room was excellant no
Location and ocean-side views over-priced food and drinks
location rude waiter at dinner (didn't eat there again); no hair conditioner in bathroom
The location of the hotel is excellent, overlooking the beach and not too long a walk to restaurants. Pool area is excellent. Room very comfortable. Food and drinks in the hotel are very expensive.
The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and tastefully furnished. The pool area and spa were fantastic with wonderful views over the crashing waves. It is a wonderful beach location. We were led to believe from the web site that all rooms had sea views. This is totally wrong and you only get a sea view if you pay a premium price. We were disappoointed to be given a room at the side of the hotel immediately above the staff smoking area. This was our biggest complaint. Our other complaint was the cost of meals in the hotel. Breakfast was 28 euros each and we were not prepared to spend another 56 euros every day for breakfast, so we were reluctantly forced to go out for breakfast every day. Had breakfast been more realistically priced at say 15 to 20 euros per person then we would have had breakfast in the hotel.
It was a lovely 10 minute walk along promenade into town centre, a walk we enjoyed a couple of times a day! Also spa in hotel was really nice. Beds were huge and really comfortable. Had a great weekend in Biarritz!!
The location was superb right on the sea front . Rooms quite spacious with comfortable beds and bedding. The indoor and outdoor pools were heated with plenty of sunbeds
beds were comfortable Reception staff were good at check-in. Concierge staff make a very good effort waited 15 minutes for valet to get my car, while other guests were more important. during this time, one valet was loading another guests car, another was told by the reception to take bags to a room, although I had pointed out that I had been waiting for my car for a long time. food was extortionately expensive. breakfast quickly became boring. room service most expensive, and most limited I have ever come across. we once tried to have lunch at the hotel, but despite asking the restaurant hostess to point out to the staff that we had been at our table for a long time, with no service, we eventually just left, having not had our order taken, and run out of time in our schedule.
Good location with good parking. None
Location over looking both Biarritz La Phare Golf course and Biarritz coast. Clean and quiet swimming pool. Great service. 20 up hill walk back from centre of Biarritz. Cost of drinks - 9 Euros for 50cl Biere.
Staff were most helpful, polite & courteous We weren't advised before the stay that works were being undertaken at the hotel, the hotel was enclosed in scaffolding, our room therefore had no views.
The hotel was clean and was quietly situated but convenient for restaurants, shops and golf. Nothing
Go to beach
Everything, first class hotel. Staff helpful and friendly. Good location. Old world charm and character about the hotel building. Everything was excellent.
Well placed and a very good hotel. The room we had was excellent Bathroom in the suite was not good. The bath was too narrow and shower door inadequate meaning that when using the shower it sprayed everywhere which made it a safety hazard. It would not stop me using the hotel again.
Beautiful old building that was unfortunately still under renovation. Many parts of the hotel were showing signs of age (the pool for example), but they were actually the mid-century additions or fixtures. I'm curious to see the hotel after the renovations are finished.
The room was spacious, well equiped and very comfortable.
excellent stuff, excellent place... The internet connection was very poor
I went surfing to hossegor and my stay was really pleasant. Great staff like family and the acommodations are great.
Wonderful hotel;Jerome and his wife and Stephanie were charming Very stylish and relaxing apart from a noisy baby by the pool Breakfast buffet was first class We will be back next year hotel should be adults only! young children can make any hotel less than relaxing
The location of the hotel was very good The room was quite small and dark considering it was supposed to be 'superior'.
location Facilities too basic
Location and excellent breakfast buffet The room had a slanted floor which translated into a slanted bed - akward sleeping....parking facilities not far away but you needed to collect from and return to the front desk the gate's opening card each time you used it .
Being so central
Great location. Right in the heart of Bayonne. Could walk to everywhere from the hotel.
Location was good and the price was reasonable. Loved the old fashioned lift. Comfortable and relaxing although it was disappointing that on my second night I was told that the hotel bar was closed. Although it was two in the morning the hotel information pack clearly said that it was always open.
Excellent location and friendly service.
The room and everything in it was sloping. Very uncomfortable and disorientating. The hotel was not full but the hotel allotted what must be the worse room. The bathroom was like a not very nice antique and the noise from outside the hotel horrendous-no soundproofing no double glazing.I feel sorry for anyone staying here longer than one night. One of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. Depressing experience and worst value for money.
We found all was very good.The car parking in the allocated place was rather difficult but all in all it started off our holiday well.
great sea view with big balcony. fantastic facilities for cooking and keeping things cold. also great bathroom plus ideal for kids and I don't have any! pool closed but probably because out of seasion
We liked the hotel the area and the accomadition also the very spacious room and of course the well equipped kitchen
They had booked a large party of young sports men who were out late at night and were very very noisey on their return and distrubed two of our nights sleep.
It is ideally located with easy access to bakery and regular shops. It was great to have the small kitchen in the room especially when the kids needed to eat early in the evening. Also the restuarant allowed us to take food up to the room, best of both world's. I would go back to the hotel but I'd bring my own pillow and also to beware that the majority of people staying there are older and I was very aware of having the children running around.
location, excellent views and quality of apartment
The whole deal. centrally located, on-site parking, friendly staff, clean and bright, fantastic sea and coastline views and the price. I recommend it! I liked it all.
location, room our double buggies did not fit into the lift or the hotel room, also we were not allowed a late check out
The view of the coastline from Le Grand Large was spectacular. The hotel is located within easy access of shops, restaurants, transportation. Having 2 non-working elevators for a period of time was unacceptable for a hotel with 9 floors.
location and view from dining room place is showing its age, and its cost for rooms and meals are far too high. breakfast for 1 person was 50 euro, about $60 USD. the ocean view room i reserved from kayak was $550, and the only view of the water was from a side window; you had to right up next to the window to even see the water or beach. when i complained, they said that since you can see the water from the window, it qualifies as ocean view. we got misled from the check in girl as to when our room would be ready, and got fast double talk as to what happened. there also appears to be some wiggle room between what we learned about the room from kayak and what the hotel provided. kind of a bait and switch. we won't be back.
Pool area , bar and restaurant are excellent. Our room was small and the bathroom was dated.
Everything, the rooms are luxurious, the staff is professional and friendly, the building is beautiful. The best of European hospitality. And the food...glorious!!!
Entrance to the Hotel was fabulous as were all the communal areas The room we were issued was in need of repair and re-decoration
I liked my staying in the hotel. Good lacation.
Grand old hotel in wonderful position, maintaining its historically high standards. Some confusion about the two restaurants, which seem to share the same dining room but offer different menus.
Nothing except close to beach This hotel is total rip off. Its way overpriced and old fashioned. Had to pay on arrival.Noisy and food was way too expensive. Never again!
the location. Very convenient to all main places in Biarritz. the room was nice. The shower was missing the piece to hold it to the wall on top. I was very annoyed when at 3pm I wanted to get some room service and the restaurant was closed! I guess is a problem in France not only of this hotel.
Location Parking was difficult to find, the room was very small for 175euro a night, front facing room very noisy, no working air conditioning.
size of room air condition not working for two nights. blockage in waste water outlet pipe - when advised for the next visitor they were already aware of it but still put us in the room!
Staff very good and the room perfect. We got upgrade because we were in honey moon.
Location Location Location Parking Area No Lighting?Staff could be frendlier.
The space, situation and cleanlines
Very helpful staff
The hotel was in a central position and there were parking facilities. The evening dinner was excellent. Breakfast items that were shown on the menu weren't actually available and would have been charged to us at full price had we not complained. The normal room rate is very overpriced but is good value at the special offer rate that we paid. There was insufficient drawer space in the room and the air conditioning unit was very noisy and would not switch off.
I would rate this hotel as a 3 star hotel rather than 4 star. It was clean & nice but not what i'd expect from a 4 star hotel.
It was very central to everywhere,airport,beach,bus stops,etc. The lighting in the room could be improved
Very friendly staff, great location, & very clean comfortable room. Breakfast better than most French hotels!
Hotel staff were excellent. Very friendly and very helpful. If you are not up early breakfast drinks i.e. coffee, tea can be cold and fruit salad finished.
Very friendly and polite staff with good English language speaking skills.
I thought the hotel employees from the cleaning staff to the receptionists were very pleasant and reception staff tried to be especially helpful, in the light of the French strike and our cancelled flight by Ryan air - who I would never fly with again. The room was rather crampted for two people staying 11 nights (resulting from cancelled flight) I would only recommend 5 nights stay because of the room size factor. There should be larger rooms available for stays any longer than a week.
The staff were extremely helpful .Nothing was too much trouble Needed a shower screen
Have just stayed for a week and the whole experience was fantastic. The staff must be the most friendly and helpful of anywhere in the world.They appear very happy in their work. Brilliant value for money and centarl. Highly recommended by our party of six. Everthing excellent.
location excellent.staff really great .good breakfast and with car parking.its a no brainer -book it
Got a modern recently refurbished room, with a very nice bathroom and separate toilet. Hotel is in excellent location, quiet, and very close to the beach and the city center. Staff was very helpful and nice. If you are planning on going to San Sebastian, the bus to the train station passes right outside the hotel.
the hotel was very central and we had a lovely room, most of the staff were very helpful and nice and they had a no smoking policy in the bedrooms which was fantastic as most of the hotels in france allow smoking everywhere
easy comfort chair missing from room. Had to sit on the bed or a hard wood dining chair. no good for 10 day stay!
free wi-fi, location, clean room, friendly staff breakfast: no enough food for everyone, dirty cups, sour milk - the hotel is great just don't have breakfast there.
The staff very nice- service excellent Hotel needs a makeover- a bit faded
nice location no
A very well run hotel with good food attractively priced. Good loaction.
The lack of formality, and breakfast and dinner included in our room rent. Can not think of anything.
Excellent location by the lake. Very pleasant staff. Good food. Although the food was excellent the menu becomes limited after a few days.
The special offer at a very low price offered value for money. The room and corridors smelt a little damp and musty, but the weather was wet.The swimming pool , which is the first thing you see was green and badly maintained.
The location is outstanding and the hotel first class, including gourmet food. At the sea side with the calm of the countryside.
The location, close to seaside, but with nice views over large lake.Good size balcony, comfortable bed.friendly staff led by working owners. no
It would have been nice to have had a separate lower cost brasserie type restaurant.
comfortable, clean, quiet, relaxed atmosphere
Fantastic setting, fabulous food
good food , relaxing setting , excellent bathroom / bed , very helpful wine master , in the main very friendly / helpful staff food was generally a bit pricey , head waiter was rude / unfriendly
quiet and relaxing hotel with excellent staff. rooms and pool excellent, we didnt eat in the hotel as we felt that the food was extremely pricey. would not hesitate in going back all the same
This hotel is a ver especial place The decoration, the food, the view, ..... Very relax and the atmosfare is relax and luxery.. Highly recomended.
This hotel is amazing! The rooms are lovely and very large, the views spectacular. We were there for a wedding, which was one of the best we've ever been to!
Excellent on every dimension, but few english speakers for example in the restaurant. So you need some french or a willngness to experiment. Nothing.
Beautiful room and surroundings. Enjoyed having breakfast by the side of the lake.
The tranquility & peacefullness of the setting, overlooking the Lake with it's own active wildlife; ideal 'escape' from the bussle of Biarritz and St Jean de Lux. The comfort & quality of the Hotel , embracing the friendliness of the staff and quality of the Cuisine.Arriving after lunch , the Staff provided cold plates of ham & cheese, which , with local Vin Blanc was very welcome after a 3 hour drive! Perhaps explanation of means of communication between Pool & Reception and the routine at breakfast , including guests making their own coffee, could have been explained on arrival , to avoid misunderstandings. Otherwise , no complaints!
Staff very friendly, excellent facilities Wooden floors not very practical for sound. Breakfast expensive
excellent location- very clean-friendly staff and very good breakfast
A great room with a great view in a very well located hotel. Staff was friendly and hard working.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a great location right on the beach and we had a partial sea view even though we ordered a courtyard view. The room was quite small but had everything we needed and was modern, clean and stylish.
The hotel is very well placed just in front of the ocean and very close to the centre of Biarritz. You just have a street to cross to be on the main beach. The room is comfortable and I loved its design. Nice view on the ocean (room on the ocean side) and if you closed the windows, absolutely quiet, otherwise the noise of the ocean. No private parking place. Public parking (casino) very close but might be a pb in high season and week-ends.
The location at the Grand Plage with the ocean wiew. Small slow elevator, expensive in relation to standard, bathroom poor standard with bad smell.
We stay here for a week-end visiting Biarritz. The hotel is very well located. The rooms are small but very pretty and clean. The bathroom also small but new and clean. Perfect hotel for a week-end in Biarritz! As it is located in front of the beach, there is no easy pace for parking. But anything is perfect!
A good hotel, excellent cleaning, friendly staff. Very noisy at night from people walking along the embankment.
The check in was faultless,even though we were later then anticpated,the location is excelent,ideal for shopping or going to the beach or even getting on a bus to go out of town.I Would definitely stay at the hotel again,also it was very good value for money.
the hotel was adequate for a short stay,I would not like to be there more than a few days as the facilities were quite basic. Rather plain.
Nothing special, just good for thus price.
Comfort and friendly staff. breakfast needs to be improved for Irish residents in the hotel
The rooftop pool and terrace are spectacular at sunset.
location excellent. found all staff were welcoming, friendly & efficient spa was closed and was one of reasons for choosing hotel. breakfast €23 too expensive
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpfull
The Hotel is clean and relaxing loved the roof top pool. We wanted to eat in the hotel but on 2 occasions the rooms were taken with private parties, not impressed.
Very nice view from terrasa, cafe and pool
Everything Limited selection and quantity of food
Hotel very central to surfers beach, shops and restaurants. Room large, clean and very comfortable bed. Good sized bathroom with towelling robes. Rooftop terrace and heated pool amazing with fantastic views of Biarritz. Staff at reception were very helpful and polite. They recommended and booked some lovely restaurants for us.
We were travelling from the Costa Blanca to Poitiers and it was an excellent place to stop. It was our first time in Biarritz and we had time to see the city and drink a few beers by the sea front.We had dinner in the hotel which was very good. Normallt we would eat out but we were not impressed with the restaurants in Biarritz. We selected some champagne coctails from the bar menu which arrived 20 mins later after the bar staff had received some training!
Excellent service from receptionist No food or bar available
the people who ran the hotel were very helpful and kind. The indoor swimming pool was darkly-lit and on all the rainy days we had, it was not a cheerful place to be. The acoustics in the pool/jacuzzi area were deafening, so much so that I only used it once. We're not golfers, so for us the hotel is just too far away from any commercial center - in the middle of nowhere.
swimming pool indoors heating wasnt working in the room
The hotel is well situated being centre of the golf area and approx 300 metres to the beach. The gorunds around the hotel are pleasant and relaxing with many trees, grass, birds etc. The meals are excellant, with a good choice/selection for breakfast. the hotel staff are very helpfull and pleasant. The main rooms are a good size but the toilet and bathrooms are both very small. One had to almost stand on the toilet seat to close the door. Dispite advertising that they had SKY channel the hotel did not. CNBC was the only English speaking channel available on the TV
relaxed by the swimming pool
The hotel decor was tired and needs modernising .
The Restaurant did not open on the Saturday night and we wanted to eat in
Good situation, on Golf course and near beach & seafood restaurant at La Barre Looked tired: shower had to be hand held; lights flickered and 1 bulb hung out of socket.
situation of the hotel was very good and the pool area was excellent One of our rooms had a recess in the wall covered by a curtain as a wardrobe - I did not think that this was appropriate as furniture. THe air conditing unit was very loud also
A very warm welcome and friendly hotel. We enjoyed our stay, the staff were excellent, facilities very good however the rooms were quite basic but adequate. Close to the beach and on a golf course what more could you ask for? Would recommend to anyone visiting this area. Rooms basic but adequate.
