Ranked #33 of 64 Hotels in Biarritz
Reviewed 23 October 2012

Stayed here for 3 nights. The room and hotel are extremely luxurious. We had room 3 at the top of the annexe. This was a juniour suite and was very large, very well equipped and a swimming pool size bath.
On arrival we were met by the hotel GM, the owner and a butler to take our bags which was a nice touch, if your flying in for a couple of days the owner will even pick you up in his vintage Rolls Royce.
This hotel has been done out to the highest standards but I feel they are missing some finishing touches. When you get out of the pool you have to walk across dried mud and grass to get back to your sun bed, sounds trivial but who really wants to have muddy feet?
The butlers are extremely nice and will do anything they can for you but just lack a little in the customer service department. I went to enquire at reception and was greeted by one with his feet up on the desk dozing off. Not what you want to see at 5 star hotel.
Another minor point, if you get a taxi from Biarritz to the hotel its 10 Euro. If the hotel phone one for you when the taxi gets there is is already on 10 Euro and ends up costing 20.

However, regardless of the little issues the hotel and staff are extremely good. It is a relaxing haven in a busy town. You can really relax in this hotel and it has a lovely ambience. It is a little expensive but if you can I would highly reccommend a visit.

We stayed 3 days with our girls. Being quite used to luxury hotel we were quite disappointed by the Beaumanoir. While it is nice and in a beautiful setting, it is clearly overpriced. Also the personnel is clearly not up to the standards that the hotel puts forward.
For such a price it is not very classy to bill a less than average breakfast on top (we are French and know what good bread is). Also, we were charged 3 Euros per cookie for our daughter who had been sick for two days and could not eat anything else.
When sitting at the pool it would have been nice not to stare at dirty tissues lying on the ground all afternoon
Again all of this would have been acceptable if not for the rates and the way the hotel is advertised.

Travelled with family including school age children.

The establishment is five minutes from central Biarritz in a quiet residential area.

Staff were extremely welcoming and couldn't do enough for us.

We were upgraded to a large suite with two bedrooms and a lounge area overlooking the immaculately manicured garden and lap pool.

The building itself is impressive from the outside and the furnishings are in keeping.

The pool is heated and there are plenty of loungers and day beds as well as a shaded area.

After eating in town, we ordered a bottle of champagne from the huge selection which was brought to our room, other guests had theirs on the terrace. The hotel does offer a seafood platter if you want to eat in.

Beds, linen and toileteries were all up to scratch.

Our only regret was that we stayed such a short time. We would definitely return.

Our stay at this wonderful place started in grand style. We were greeted by the manager at the airport who came to pick me up in the hotel's Rolls Royce. upon arriving at the hotel, i checked in at the front desk and was offered champagne. the common areas of the hotel are beautifully decorated with a very eclectic style. it is the perfect combination of traditional, modern yet keeping an intimate atmosphere. My room was cozy with a great bathroom and shower. every day, breakfast was a ritual at the long communal table. the selection was vast and the service attentive. the hotel staff also gave great recommendation of things to do ad restaurants to eat. overall, a great experience and an alternative to regular hotels. will definately stay here again if i go back to Biarritz on vacation.

Stunningly beautiful hotel. Thought and detail has gone into everything here. From the exquisite decor to the comfort and luxury and personal service. Staff do everything to make you feel that you can treat the hotel as a home away from home. Every detail has been considered. Particularly liked the blankets and ashtrays provided on the lawns for us unfortunate addicts! And the personal service of the owner who will provide complimentary transfers to the airport in his personal rolls royce. Breakfast was delightful, and unusually available until a civilised noon - although overpriced at 30 euros per person (5 extra for eggs!)
Evening food IS available here, as a picnic on your lap in the lounge. Lovely food, although again a little overpriced for what it is.
Overall a beautiful property with delightful service. Would highly recommend. Am sure it's the loveliest in the area.

We stayed for 3 nights as part of a driving holiday in France. It's about a 25 minutre walk to the main beach / town centre. This is a very small and intimate hotel, with only 8 rooms (well 2 apartments, 2 suites and 4 rooms). We had booked a suite and got upgraded to a 2 bed apartment which was nice - they'd did make a big fuss of it but they did say that they try to upgrade people where posible. The whole hotel is furnished in a very funky style that works. We received excellent service, maybe because the hotel was only 50% occupied, or maybe that's just standard. The owner was away when we stayed, so we unfortunately didn't get a ride in his Rolls Royce.

The downside to this hotel is that there is no aircon in the room (well not in the apartment we stayed in anyway) which made it very hot and night and I'm surprised that a room costing over 500 euros a night wouldn't have that. Also, the white wine selection is non existent, with only 4 choices. The one I chose was not available as they'd sold out! I was forced to drink Jacobs Creek which is pretty awful at the best of times but in the in the South of France is sacrilege (the other 2 choices were apparently very sweet wines). They do have an amazing range of champagne if that's you thing and also a decent G&T.

We ate in the hotel one night, the food was pre made and heated up by the staff. It was fairly tasty and cheap, but you certainly wouldn't want to eat there evry night. The is however a very nice restaurant about 10 min walk away (Chez Philippe) and lots of choice in the town.

Overall I would stay here again, and it makes a great alternative to the stuffy Hotel du Palais, but if if the owner reads this, please improve your choice of white wine!!!!
