Good facilities

The use of a swimming pool and a gym is found to be a bonus, allowing guests to enjoy their stay here even more. The hotel is also set in lovely grounds and the car park provides plenty of free parking spaces for guests’ vehicles.

Negative Reviews

Room issues

Guests sometimes find the rooms here a little too snug for their liking. They also wonder whether the overall décor could be spruced up just a bit to improve the general look and feel of the rooms.

No air conditioning

According to feedback, the rooms don’t feature air conditioning. Guests report that this can lead to the rooms being a little too hot during warmer weather.

A bit outside the town

This hotel is located about a mile and a half outside the tourist centre of Saint-Jean-de-Luz and guests find this a little inconvenient. Those with a vehicle find the location more suitable for their needs.
