“Nice hotel, Friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

My wife an I decided on a 5 night break at this hotel as a base to visit the Pyrenees area of France. Our visit was from the 27/06/13 and fortunately we had good warm weather, a little cloudy and not excessively hot.
The location of the hotel for us was ideal, just on the outskirts of the pretty town of Salies de Bearn. There was plenty of well laid out parking and the staff we found to be very pleasant and helpful. It is quite a pretty hotel with a reasonable size swimming pool situated next to a golf course. We did not actually use the swimming pool as we were out exploring most of the day until quite late and although the pool did look inviting we never actually had the time to use it. The dining experience at the hotel is very pleasant, either dining indoors with large sliding patio doors or dining on the veranda overlooking the pool. We did not eat any breakfasts at the hotel as we got an early start each day but we did have 2 evening meals which were very nice, it is a great dining area with nice ambience and pleasant helpful staff. We stayed in one of the cheaper rooms which I believe was described a garden room. It was a nice size room actually on the 1st floor overlooking the front entrance and car park. It had a lovely comfortable bed, nice size bedroom with plenty of hanging and storage space, an adequate on suite bathroom and a separate toilet. The room was ideal for what we wanted. The hotel do not provide tea/coffee in the bedrooms, but I do not think that many hotels in France do. Also there is a on the wall dispenser for soap/shampoo in the bathroom which was slow in delivering, if we had known we would have taken our own shampoo and soap. Very minor as I said the room was very nice. The hotel advertises air conditioning but I could not see any in the room, but as the weather was just pleasantly warm we easily ventilated the room by opening the windows, so it caused us no problems. The hotel also has free wifi available which was a bonus for keeping in touch with the family.
One peculiar thing about the hotel is that on a Sunday evening the hotel basically closes, the front doors of the hotel are locked late afternoon and there is no receptionist or any other staff around. Also no evening meal is available. Guests are given a pad key code to unlock what appears to be a fire door situated a little way from the main entrance. Unfortunately the stairway from this fire door ran next to our room so there was a slight disturbance with guests going in and out and the fire door banging. But it was not too excessive and did not really bother us.
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would stay there again. It is a lovely part of France, the local town is very pretty with some nice restaurants and there are a lot of fortified towns and history to see in the area. We had 2 trips into the mountains and saw some fantastic views but when your navigator (my wife) says that it is fine because it is a yellow road, just be a bit careful as there are some very narrow (often single track) roads which are very steep and two way traffic which can be challenging at times. I am glad to get my car back in one piece. A very enjoyable mini break, lovely hotel, beautiful area.

We only went for Sunday lunch but by the time we left we all thought what a meal.The staff spoke some English and with our bit of French we got an excellent meal. The gamba's were to die for. The pool was very inviting and the views were great

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

WE had two hotels to choose between and the proprietor of a cafe inb Salies recommended the Glf/Lodge. It was a good choice. Clean, comfortable, well appointed and with a lovely pool that;s not fenced so is available at pretty much all times. Reception staff spoke good English. The room was spacious, with a very large, good quality bed, balcony and separate toilet. There is a road across the back of the golf course that does generate a fair bit of noise, but we didn't notice it at night, and slept well. We didn't eat here, so can't comment on the food. We'd spent the previous night in a basic hotel in San Sebastian, which cost half as much again as this hotel, so this was like a real touch of luxury!

Room Tip: Most rooms are at the back, and all have balconies with views over the pool and golf course.

The owners are very friendly and welcoming.
The hotel is modern, well appointed and spotlessly clean.
The rooms are also perfect.
Great value.

Restaurant was adequate but no more than that.
Breakfast buffet could have a bit more choice.
