We stayed here for three nights as our base in Basque Country. The room was small but comfortable. The public spaces are what make this hotel so pleasant. There is an attractive garden, with swimming pool. There is a view of the Pyrenees, and a field with horses from the garden. The restaurant and bar have a terrace area that...

Just of the motorway but without the noise of it. Lovely pool, good restaurant. Try not to get a room on top floor (2) as some have weird shaped ceilings that you have to duck under - or hit your head on. However it's across the road from a supermarket and not that far from the sights, particularly if you...

Year round heated outdoor pool! Great shower and bathroom w heated towel warmer. Nine Euro breakfast buffet was very good . Parking is secure. Overall a good deal only 3 minutes by car from center of old town. Would definitely stay there again with budget and quality being very good.

Think the staff make this hotel, especially the lady originally from South America, sorry can't remember her name! The pool area was great to relax with a glass of wine on the comfortable loungers. We ate in the restaurant, there was a buffet on which was varied and tasty plus a la carte if required. Rooms were basic and a...

This hotel lies on D810 approximately 600m from J3 of the E5/E80 to the north of St Jean de Luz. If you are travelling well into Spain, Donibane is very convenient for an overnight stop on the way from the French ferry ports in the north. Reception was pleasant and efficient on both our visits. The standard en-suite rooms are...

Travelling with a small group on motorcycles, this is located just minutes from the motorway, this is a clean, friendly hotel & very good value for money. The rooms are quite basic but do have everything you need and the bathroom looks like it has recently been refurbished. The outside area is a well kept rose garden & heated swimming...

I chose this hotel for an overnight stop en route to the Santander ferry. It turned out to be a perfect choice - just a couple of minutes off the motorway, and 20-30 minutes to walk into St Jean, depending on whether you follow the busy road or take the scenic route along the coastal walkway. Lidl is right opposite....
