We stayed at Refuge Orisson last night as our first stop on the Camino Frances from St Jean Pied de Port and recommended it to everyone!
Firstly the staff are amazing. It is simply not possible to praise them highly enough. They were welcoming, helpful and attentive. They created the perfect atmosphere for a first night on the Camino.
The facilities are excellent. You can get take away sandwiches/baguetts/bocadillos pretty much all day. Dinner, lunch and breakfast were great. The rooms are good and showers and facilities are good as well.
The views from the outside deck are world class and the perfect place to have a coffee, beer, wine or orange juice!
if you are walking the Camino Frances via Route Napoleon, stop at Refuge Orisson and stay the night, even if you don't think you need it. It is worth the stop.
