We stayed here for three nights and loved the simple elegance and genuine hospitality. Marie-Helene, Sandrine and their mother were very welcoming hosts and were extremely kind and helpful with their advice; everything from weather reports to which pass to take over the mountains for the best views.
The hotel was refurbished two years ago and the public areas and rooms are very stylish in an understated way, combining traditional with contemporary. We had a “comfort room+” at the back of the hotel which was spacious and quiet with a view of the garden to look out onto in the morning. It was spotlessly clean and the king-sized bed was fitted with an excellent mattress.
Breakfasts were typical continental, fresh and offered a good choice. For dinner there were three menus to choose from for varied appetites and we enjoyed the two meals we had sampling food from the region. We thought the food was very good value. There is an interesting aperitif list and the wine list has a good selection of all-French wines. We went to La Grange one night, also owned by the family, in Saint-Lary about 10 minutes away and had a very enjoyable dinner there too. The restaurant is very busy and Sandrine booked us the last available table.
The WiFi service is good and the car-park behind the hotel is a definite plus.
Arreau is a small town but is full of character and very picturesque. We also liked Bagneres-de-Bigorre which we visited on the Saturday to go to the market.
We would definitely love to make a return visit.
