The slick website gives the impression of a trendy modern hotel and restaurant. Fortunately, there's a lot of old world charm. Beautifully situated, with a private pool the other side of a pretty stream, this is a good choice for a family or couples for a few days exploring the Basque country. The rooms are spacious (many with a patio or balcony), with wooden floors, pretty rugs, and simply and comfortably furnished. There are plenty of public areas to spread out in. It's more expensive in the season, but at €120-180 still good value.
The restaurant has quite a local reputation, famous for its suckling pig, which unfortunately had sold out during our visit. There are two menus, one at €31, another at €55. Wines start in the low €20's. The rolled stuffed chicken was a little dry, probably having had to wait just a little too long. Breakfast was quite a spread, and worth its €16.
I think the restaurant can do better than my experience, and I'd like to try it again.
