location by lake good, food excellent restaurant closed earlier than desired
The view of the room to the lake was amazing. Expensive breakfast.
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.
well situated for town centre and nearby amenities, with great view of the lagoon
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
Great location on lake. Expensive breakfast
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.
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!
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 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.
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 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!)
Pleasant and friendly staff in a nice location. The estuary view was fantastic and was great with the kids for crabbing. No
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 € +
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 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 was friendly , great walking area along scenic pathway . Large room . Uncomfortable Beds need to upgrade , felt budget !
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 it was in course of much needed renovation!
The view from the room
The staff are excellent. The beds were uncomfortable, but for the price no complaints.
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.
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.
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.
location rude waiter at dinner (didn't eat there again); no hair conditioner in bathroom
Everything the service and room was excellant no
Location and ocean-side views over-priced food and drinks
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.
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 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.
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.
Everything, first class hotel. Staff helpful and friendly. Good location. Old world charm and character about the hotel building. Everything was excellent.
Good location with good parking. None
Go to beach
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.
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.
The room was spacious, well equiped and very comfortable.
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.
The hotel was clean and was quietly situated but convenient for restaurants, shops and golf. Nothing
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
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.
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 .
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.
location Facilities too basic
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.
The location of the hotel was very good The room was quite small and dark considering it was supposed to be 'superior'.
Being so central
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.
Excellent location and friendly service.
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.
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
Pool area , bar and restaurant are excellent. Our room was small and the bathroom was dated.
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.
Everything, the rooms are luxurious, the staff is professional and friendly, the building is beautiful. The best of European hospitality. And the food...glorious!!!
I liked my staying in the hotel. Good lacation.
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.
Very helpful staff
Location They invited us for breakfast and told us it was "included" and then charged us for it. Breakfast is horrible including eggs made out of some mix and watery and very little to eat. Rooms are VERY small.
Location Location Location Parking Area No Lighting?Staff could be frendlier.
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.
Staff very good and the room perfect. We got upgrade because we were in honey moon.
The space, situation and cleanlines
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!
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.
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 room was a very comfortable size for three people. It's in a great location, very close to the beach and restaurants, but not in too noisy of a location. The hotel staff was also very helpful and accommodating to our needs. They went above and beyond to help us out!
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.
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
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, excellent views and quality of apartment
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 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.
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.
Very friendly staff, great location, & very clean comfortable room. Breakfast better than most French hotels!
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
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
It was very central to everywhere,airport,beach,bus stops,etc. The lighting in the room could be improved
Very friendly and polite staff with good English language speaking skills.
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.
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 staff were extremely helpful .Nothing was too much trouble Needed a shower screen
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.
A very well run hotel with good food attractively priced. Good loaction.
The staff very nice- service excellent Hotel needs a makeover- a bit faded
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.
easy comfort chair missing from room. Had to sit on the bed or a hard wood dining chair. no good for 10 day stay!
The lack of formality, and breakfast and dinner included in our room rent. Can not think of anything.
The location, close to seaside, but with nice views over large lake.Good size balcony, comfortable bed.friendly staff led by working owners. no
Excellent location by the lake. Very pleasant staff. Good food. Although the food was excellent the menu becomes limited after a few days.
The location is outstanding and the hotel first class, including gourmet food. At the sea side with the calm of the countryside.
nice location no
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 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 location at the Grand Plage with the ocean wiew. Small slow elevator, expensive in relation to standard, bathroom poor standard with bad smell.
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.
Staff very friendly, excellent facilities Wooden floors not very practical for sound. Breakfast expensive
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.
excellent location- very clean-friendly staff and very good breakfast
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 great room with a great view in a very well located hotel. Staff was friendly and hard working.
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.
Great seaviews from our room direct at the beach. There are bars with late opening hours nearby. However often the sea is louder!
Everybody was really friendly, the beachfront amazingly beautiful and the high quality surfing facilities
Location was perfect, room and view very good and breakfast worth having. Friendly staff and free parking Bar was disappointing and only Heineken or 1664, ie no French beers or ales. Bar area very 1970's and such a wonderful location deserves better public areas
Good location and view at the seaside. Quite standard hotel without any highlights or complains. Time was off-season so I'd expect quite more lively atmosphere durign high seasons.
The room was lovely and the view was stunning The breaskfast was poor and very expensive
I liked the situation of the hotel and the view from the hotel in the room with seaview. The cook at the hotel could do better.
The situation was good but we were not aware that a disco was held at the hotel so it became very noisy. The exterior of the hotel, particularly at the rear was dirty and untidy.
Great location overlooking the sea and good size room. Main entrance and access could be improved.
It was conveniant for our needs No air con, room was very very hot
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!
Beautiful room and surroundings. Enjoyed having breakfast by the side of the lake.
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
It would have been nice to have had a separate lower cost brasserie type restaurant.
This hotel is a ver especial place The decoration, the food, the view, ..... Very relax and the atmosfare is relax and luxery.. Highly recomended.
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
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!
Fantastic setting, fabulous food
comfortable, clean, quiet, relaxed atmosphere
Excellent on every dimension, but few english speakers for example in the restaurant. So you need some french or a willngness to experiment. Nothing.
Everything Limited selection and quantity of food
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!
Nothing special, just good for thus price.
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
The rooftop pool and terrace are spectacular at sunset.
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.
location excellent. found all staff were welcoming, friendly & efficient spa was closed and was one of reasons for choosing hotel. breakfast €23 too expensive
Comfort and friendly staff. breakfast needs to be improved for Irish residents in the hotel
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpfull
