“An oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

An unexpected delight. This inn is set in its own little park, with a beautiful garden. The king room we had was immaculate and comfortable (about 100 euros a night). There is a nice little bar downstairs and you can take your gin and tonic out to sit on the peaceful terrace. The hotel serves a nice buffet breakfast for an additional 10 euros per person (well worth it) and can provide a light dinner (not a service we took advantage of). The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful and recommended a very nice restaurant within walking distance. I think the options for accommodations are somewhat limited driving along the coast here; this is a great choice.

Once found a wonderfull old "home". Friendly country inn where one feels at home. Although a school was next door you feld as if you were in the middle the countryside. If one day you go to the Basque Region be sure to look at this small hotel

What a wonderful place to stay while touring the Basque Region of Spain. Just an hour's drive from Bilbao, you can't find a better location for a nice, homey stay. Hotel Zubieta is more like a country inn, than a Spanish hotel. Originally the horse stable of a Spanish count, the building, now totally refurbished as a bed and breakfast simply reeks of historic charm.The rooms are comfortable with tremendous views of the Basque hillside, complete with grazing cows. The setting is simply idyllic.

And the front desk help could not be more accommodating. Kudos to everyone associated with this property. A wonderful, absolutely charming place to spend a vacation.

My only suggestion is that the hotel installs a kitchen serving typical Basque cuisine. Unfortunately, their evening food selection is currently limited to only sandwiches and salads plus a selection of cold dishes. Since Lekeitio is off the beaten path, so to speak, good dining establishments within the town itself are rather limited.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Zubieta Palace and surrounding hillsides. The view is incredible!

Gracias por sus amabilísimos comentarios que nos animan a seguir intentando hacer las cosas lo mejor que podemos. En el hotel ofrecemos una carta variada de raciones para los clientes que prefieran cenar algo sin salir. Pegando al hotel tenemos un restaurante magnífico de buena cocina vasca donde poder degustar comida más elaborada. Nuestros clientes vienen encantados.

There seem to be only two ways in to Lekeitio center (driving yourself). To find the hotel one is easy - head to town center and the hotel is off a small car park on the right next to a brightly painted school, the second takes you through the town center with it's maze of one way streets.
Once there, the Hotel and it's staff are completely charming. Nice room, clean, good bathroom, nice breakfast, good bar. Shame they don't have an evening restaurant.

We spent 3 nights here in April. I was coming down with a cold and the hotel was a welcome respite. We got a larger room with a separate sitting area, which was quite comfortable. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The hotel is tucked away off the main road in a beautiful setting, within easy walking distance of the town and the harbor. Our stay there, even with the cold, was one of the high points of our trip. I would highly recommend it.

We stayed in this totally charming, romantic , tucked away hotel last week. It is beautiful and set in stunning surroundings. The staff are kind and helpful . It is complicated to find by car, but SO worth it!

This was the first stop on our two-week meander back to England and we could not have wished for a more pleasant start. The hotel is quiet and though the rooms are a little on the small side, they are fine. Breakfast is lovely and served by a team who all seem determined to make our stay as good as it could be.
One evening, the Wi-fi failed (router) and by seven o'clock the following morning, they had installed a new one!
Lekeitio doesn't have much to recommend but we would come again just to stay at the Zubieta (and have dinner just up the road)!
Remember, the hotel does not offer lunch or dinner but find Meson Arrapian 150 metres back along Calle Atea and you won't mind that in the slightest!!!
If you're arriving at the weekend in Summer (not sure about the rest of the year) you cannot reach the hotel by car from the harbour as they close the road. Instead you need to approach the hotel from the roundabout due south of the hotel on the E2405. If you've driven from Guernica on the E2238, turn right (3rd exit) on the big roundabout at its junction with the E2405 and then turn into town at the next roundabout onto Calle Atea. The hotel is signposted on the right; but it's through a narrow arch in the corner of a car park and quite difficult to see as it's "behind you" as you're driving into town.
We were really pleased with our stay.
