“Amazing!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

We'll come back again.The staff is very kind and helpful. They give very good tips to go around the city.
The views are breath taking. We also loved the alpacas, baby goats and the two german shepherd.
You'll need a car to get there.
Eskerrik asko Edurne!

We had a difficult time finding this lovely B and B, as Sat Nav tried to take us the off road way! Make sure you get the instructions off their website that takes you the accessible way!
We arrived in torrential rain, but the warm and friendly welcome soon made us forget the trouble we had gone through finding them. The rooms were warm and comfortable. Our room was not overlooking the sea but had a lovely big open but roofed outside area. The view from the front rooms and the breakfast area is stunning and out over the vast ocean. Being in an elevated position the views even in the rain were stunning.
The breakfast was excellent with homemade yoghurt and cake and plenty of fresh fruit. There was unlimited, tea, coffee and hot chocolate available throughout our stay, and the selection of teas was the best I have seen in a while, catering for all tastes! A really nice touch.
They also have a very nice looking spa area, but we were not there long enough to make use of them this time.
A very pleasant stay.

We stayed here for three nights in mid-September, 2012. It was a fantastic experience in every way! The views are outstanding, the grounds are impeccable, the spa is a nice amenity, and the hosts are very accomodating. Although the husband and wife don't speak English, their English speaking children were very helpful. What a nice family!!

As a group of five, and we stayed in an apartment on the second floor. It was spacious and very clean. The breakfast each morning was wonderful, and consisted of fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee cake, fresh fruit, homemade yogurt, and baggette and jams. If we could export a coffee machine like they have back to our house, it would be terrific. It was superb coffee con leche!

This was a perfect location for us to use as a home base as we took day trips throughout the area, including into France. (You should have a car if you stay here.) We didn't realize it when we booked it, but this is along the route of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. We drove a few kilometers to the west and then hiked the Camino route for a a couple of hours down to the town of Orio. The views on this hike were spectacular, as well.

Although we live on a ranch with plenty of critters, our college aged children still had a great time with the farm animals!

The beautiful pictures on the Maddiola website give you a peak into the this wonderful place. We're so glad we didn't stay in the city of San Sebastian. What a shame to have missed these accomodations, and what a value it is!

Everytning at Maddiola is perfect!! The views to the sea, the breakfast, the nice rooms, the heating under your feets, the decoration, the rooms and the apartments, the helpfull owners, and the Spa!! There is a restaurant very near where you can have dinner and taste the good basque food, don't forget the cheesecake!! Ideal if you go with your partner, for the romantic atmosphere and the spa, or if you go with your childrens, because of the little farm that they have. San Sebastian is very near and you can try the famous pintxos.

Room Tip: I prefer the ones with sea view, and the apartments in the upper floor.

This is a great little B&B, we stayed here for a single night as part of a road trip through the Basque country.

It’s worth noting the B&B is some way outside of San Sebastian, however we simply walked down the hill and got a very cheap bus into town (so we could have some Txakoli!) and got a taxi back (about 12 Euros). It still worked out significantly cheaper than staying in town, and the view from the sea view room (try to specify one of these) was simply stunning.

The property itself is lovely, the rooms are simple but comfortable and the bathrooms surprisingly modern. The breakfast was simple but very tasty, and I also enjoyed very much the homemade yoghurt.

The highlight was the owners, who cannot speak English but their children can. We were in dire need of a laundry, and asked the owners where we could find one. Instead of pointing us back into town, they simply took our washing from us, washed it all, hung it out to dry and gave it back all clean!! I tried to pay them something for this but they would not accept! This really helped us out and allowed us to spend out limited time exploring the fantastic town of San Sebastian and enjoying the pintxos hopping! You won’t beat this for the money or the view!!

Firstly, this B&B is good value for money and in a great situation (but poor location), with friendly owners. There appear to be 6 groundfloor rooms, all ensuite; 3 are called "mountainview" but basically face a wall and 3 are supposed to be seaview but more on that below.

All bedrooms appear to be ensuite and each has a private patio. All bedrooms (including their shower-rooms) and all private patios are about 10 square metres each in size. The house is shabby and cluttered, the bedrooms have old, but sturdy, brown wood furniture. The bed is also basic but comfortable enough. The shower-rooms have good plumbing.

The breakfast is not "fantastic" as an earlier reviewer put it but can be called "good" for the price of 5 Euros per person. Each room has its own breakfast table which is preset, including the food. On it you will find 1 roll per person (exactly 1 roll), 1 slice of cake per person, some butter and two tablespoons each of two types of jam. Also fruit (we got 1 kiwi each and some slices of melon/pineapple) plus (a pleasant surprise) a glass of excellent fresh (not the concentrate stuff, which even 5 star hotels serve up) orange juice and a little homemade yogurt which was delicious.

The breakfast coffee was from a machine (even the 5 star hotels in this area serve only machine coffee so quality depends mainly on the beans used) and it was adequate (NOT fantastic as another reviewer who claimed to be Italian has written) and there is a choice of teabags and powdered hot chocolate too.

The location is a good 20 minutes (not 10 as others have written) by car from the old town, and the road is narrow, steep and windy. The peace of the place, its second greatest strength after the seaview, was broken the morning we were there by the angry sound of a buzz saw or strimmer, less than 100m away, going for hours.

The seaview is superb but therein lies a puzzle. 3 times - when we booked a couple of months ago, a few days before we arrived, and also when we checked in - we requested a seaview room if possible but were always told they were all taken. Yet at breakfast only 3 tables were set and we know they were all in rooms on the non-view side because all the others who had breakfast had been occupying the patios adjoining ours, on the non-view side.

Why would we be refused a seaview when none were occupied?! Those seaview rooms are their greatest strength, yet they put ALL their guests in the "bad" rooms (there was no price difference so it could not have been that). As you can imagine, this soured our visit.

I have rated the place as very good because of the value for money but the distance from town and the narrow, windy road are major negatives if you want easy access to San Sebastian.
