“Restaurant for Lunch”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

I had lunch in the restaurant. Great view on the ocean. Like other people have reported here the service is very efficient, professional and very pleasant - I really enjoyed talking chocolate with a specialist. The house wine was good value and the dish of the day perfect for lunch. I would recommend to go around 1:30 when less people are eating. Because of the FIPA the place was packed. There is a nice little French church next to the hotel and you very near the cliff and the casino. Can't wait to return next summer.

Room Tip: I only had lunch

Biarritz is a splendid city, with gorgeous, clean beaches full of powerful waves. For surfers or just beach lovers, take in the spectacular views from this lovely hotel. Staff was extremely helpful, special merci to Eric at the reception, he was gracious in accomodating our special requests. We had a balcony with a view overlooking the sea and plaza, perfect for watching the waves, surfers, and people watching in the plaza. Restaurant is conveniently located, food is delicious, but prices are high. If you have the time, explore various nearby restaurants, better prices. We found all service to be of high quality, very nice wait staff at the hotel restaurant. Location cannot be beat, Biarritz is also a great city to fly into if you want to surf at Hossegor, small town 45 minutes north of Biarritz, with a great wave. Also good if you want to surf in San Sebastian, Spain, 1 hour by bus, 1.5 by train.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an ocean view, seemed easy to get this upgrade at the reception desk.

A lovely hotel in a great location in Biarritz. Service was wonderful. Don't eat at the restaurant though, food was expensive and terrible as was the service.

Perfect room with small balcony overlooking the sea and old square, just refurbished. Staff cannot do enough to help and always with a smile. A french hotel with a great bed and normal pillows !!. Only way to improve,would be a coffee machine in the room( but that is being pedantic!!) Will definitely be back..loved it

Room Tip: Room 15 is wonderful !!

Had a lovely time in Biarritz and this hotel was exactly what we needed. The room was large and spotless with a lovely view and a small balcony. The only downside was the shower was not attached to the wall at standing height, so I can to hold it above my head which is a bit tricky when you've got long hair!

Stayed May 2012, travelled with friends
