Manchester to San Sebastian


I will be travelling to san Sebastian Donostia from Manchester UK in mid September, with a young baby, can anyone suggest the best and easiest way to get there please? We are open to hiring a car if necessary.

If there are family friendly hotels or apartments you can recommend in Old Town too that would be great.

Any suggestions and advice is much appreciated.

Plane to Bilbao or Biarritz and then bus from either place. Or a rental car.

Easyjet used to fly a route from Manchester to Biarritz (summer time only) but not sure if they still do it.

Easyjet fly to Bilbao from Manchester on Sundays and Fridays, then it's about an hour and 10 minutes on the bus to the centre of San Sebastian.

I would imagine all the hotels are family friendly - check out the hotel reviews on here. You can also look at the reviews of holiday rentals to see if any mention a cot (you may be able to choose this under the advanced search).
