This roadside hotel has a charming atmosphere and welcoming staff. Check in was smooth and our room very clean and comfortable.Excellent bed and lift roomy enough to bring up luggage. Various size rooms to accomodate families, couples and single travellers. The village is also charming to saunter through. A small refrigerator in room allowed us to keep our cheese cool.

The Hotel Ithurria is in a charming old 17th century inn in a typical small Basque village. The inn has been beautifully restored and now also houses a Michelin-starred restuarant. The inn and the rooms are beautifully decorated with antiques to fit the theme. My wife and I stayed here for three nights at the beginning of June, ‘16 and...

A family run hotel with chef patron the top of his one Michelin star game. On our last day we shared between two a whole leg of spring lamb! We return twice a year for walking in this region. The swimming pool after three hour walk is just brilliant. You must add this to your list of memorable experiences. We...

(this review is for the restaurant only) We visited after a week of fairly average food in Basque Country - this redeemed them all. We went for the 6 plate tasting menu - not cheap at 88 Euros per person but worth every penny. Really outstanding was the line caught merlu and the lamb - these were insanely good. Both...

I must admit I was slightly disappointed with our room. I felt that the decor was a bit dated and that things needed a bit of a spruce up. The staff in the restaurant were good and worked hard. The food was very good and lived up to our expectations.

We went in Mid July this year with our two boys aged 6 and 9 years old for five nights. We were upgraded upon arrival which was fantastic. The food is absolutely amazing and the manager was great with the kids and prepared food specifically for them including ordering chicken one night for them (which wasn't on the menu). If...

I have just been back to this hotel after about 20 years and it is still the same hotel with charm and great restarurant. The little town of Ainhoa is just on the border with Spain, part of "The Way" and surrounded by beuitiful hills. Very tranquile during the week. The restaurant is a don´t miss!
