“Excellent Town House Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2005

Maison Garnier is in the centre of town, a short walk from shops and beach. It is an elegant corner town house, tastefully furnished. Our rooms were comfortable and elegant, with framed views of historic biarritz and wall hangings. Bathrooms come with old fashioned dinner-plate shower heads. Ceilings are high and windows large and shuttered. Decoration is fresh and the house is spotlessly clean.

Breakfast is good value, standard French, and in a very pretty and sunny morning room. A fridge downstairs is stocked with mineral water to which we were invited to help ourselves.

The owner was welcoming and helpful and once we had the door code we were able to treat the hotel as our own house in town. We thought it was delightful, and very good value and will bear it in mind for future trips.

Highly recommended for an alternative to corporate uber-hotels. Free parking was available on the street outside.

I stayed at the Maison Garnier during my first trip to Biarritz, and I was quite pleased.

The historic building is bright and well kept. The hotel's public areas are warm and welcoming; the second floor corner room I stayed in was large and comfortable, with lots of windows and a small but serviceable balcony.

The breakfast was typically French and well worth the price; the dining room is probably the nicest room in the place!

There are many local shops & a pharmacie across the street; I got a quick haircut in a salon next door and had a great opportunity to practice my French with the stylist. I had a great steak at a local restaurant just down the street - Le St Amour at 26 rue Gambetta

Fond memories of Biarritz! I would definitely stay at the Maison Garnier again.
