“Seclusion and exposure to nature near Bilbao”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary visiting Basque Country and stayed 3 days at the Ellauri Hotel and everything exceeded our expectations. The charm of this place is hard to describe; modern design with just the right balance of seclusion and exposure to nature. It's also only approximately a 20 minute car ride to Guggenheim musseum, the quaint shops and dining establishments in Bilbao. The dinners are really extraordinary at Ellauri too. We might have to think of another special occasion to ... read morecelebrate and return there soon!

We went for our honeymoon and it was very romantic. The rooms were beuatifully designed and the hotel was very peaceful. The surroundings landscapes were amazing, mountains, fields, wildlife. The owners (kepa and randa) ran the hotel and were always there - very very helpful. Also, there were sheep, and a massive beautiful dog that we played with!!

We really appreciated the very nice and helpful hosts, the good meals, the beautiful room and the fantastic view! The hotel is located very close to the Gorbeia and Urkiola National Parks, where you can do very nice walks, and is halfway and not far from Bilbao and Vittoria-Gasteig. It is a fantastic place to stay if you want to visit Euskadi.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

Ellauri Country Side Hotel was exactly what my wife and I were looking for for our Anniversary. It was peaceful and relaxing, yet close enough to Bilbao to be able to go enjoy the sites and visit the Guggenheim museum. It felt like a home away from home for us. Randa & Kepa, the Innkeepers, were so helpful with anything we needed. We loved being able to get up and just after having breakfast, choose from fresh vegetables for the dinner in the garden and watch the lambs Kepa raises there. We can't wait to return for another stay!

Room Tip: Ask for the tower suite if available: Extraordinay!

We stayed at the Ellauri Hotel for a week and had a great time. The hotel was very clean and the keepers were excellent. We read at their web site about the extraordinay viwes over Gorbeia Natural Park and it was really excellent.
Having breakfast and dinner at the hotel is a good option to taste real local food.
We visited Bilbao and Vitoria too. It was a half hour drive.
We recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing and enjoyable stay.
Thanks to Randa and Kepa

The Hotel is located near Zeanuri, not in the downtown, with astonishing views over Gorbeia.
You'll need a car to move as it's away from everything, but you will not want to go anywhere as the rooms are incredibly decorated and the service is wonderfull. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Ask for the suites if you can, they worth it! The views are the same for every room, anyway.
