I was a little concerned having booked this hotel and then reading the negative review on trip advisor. However I do believe a full renovation (May 2011) and perhaps some attention to detail has transformed Hotel Barnetche for the better! We stayed at the hotel for a long weekend in a triple room. The common areas, room and shower-room were very clean. New towels were brought in everyday. We found the room comfortable enough despite it being quite small for 3 adults. Breakfast was basic (glass of orange juice, croissant and plenty bread with butter/jam, coffee or tea - though my preference was for the delicious hot chocolate!) and this was fine for getting going in the morning. The owner was extremely kind and helpful. She also spoke good English. We were incredibly well received and were given excellent recommendations on where to go for dinner. The location of the hotel is perfect - just a short walk away from the centre and the beach. We even took a bus to St Jean de Luz on one day which was very easy. There was a mixture of ages statying at the hotel which indicates that it is probably suitable for most needs though I would say that there did not appear to be facilities for people in wheel chairs. I would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone who is looking for a reliable, great value no frills place to stay in Biarritz.
