We stayed here in May for one night whilst visiting Saint Jean de Luz. The parking is enclosed and secure. The staff are very welcoming and the décor in corridors and rooms is good. Bed comfortable. Value for money is excellent, both for the room and for breakfast. Ideal for visiting St. Jean and also as a stopover en route...

On our annual pilgrimage to Spain we always pre-select and pre-book our hotels. This is because with a car-load of luggage we require secure parking. In St Jean de Luz this is not always easy to find. Which is why we chose Hotel Arena. This is how most hotels will be run in the future, minimal staff and minimal service....

This is a fairly new Hotel in an out of the way location opposite (over the motorway) a Carrefour hyper market and next door to a brand new Courtepaille restaurant. The receptionist welcomed us in English and directed us to our room. They are fairly basic but clean & have everything you need. The bed was comfortable and there was...

We stayed here for 3 nights with our 9month old puppy. We knew the area and found this hotel to be convenient for visiting St Jean de Luz and Biarritz. There is secure parking and grassy areas for exercising the dog. The room was clean and smart although the layout of the bathroom was not very easy to use. The...

We stayed here as a stopover on our way to the south. The hotel was easy to find and near the highway. The hotel offers free, spacious parking and free wifi. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was spacious. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was good. Only disadvantage I can think of was the limited number of power plugs....

We stopped at this hotel on our way back from the South of France before catching the ferry from Santander to Portsmouth. The location is excellent - just off the main motorway - it does take a bit of finding (it's down a little side road towards the beach) but I get the feeling the signage will be slowly improved...

This was a very well located and good value for money stop over in our journey between the UK and Portugal. We were pleasantly surprised by the efficiency of the reception staff who were so helpful and polite when they swiftly checked us in. We had a family room which was splotlessly clean and had everything we needed - comfortable...

This is the perfect place to stop for a night if on the move. It is easy to find just off the motorway and the rooms are functional but comfortable. We were worried about the closeness of the motorway to our room but we didn't hear a thing with the windows closed and good airconditioning. However our stay was made...
