Only about forty minutes from the border with France.The room was very comfortably furnished with twin beds. With a small eating area on the ground floor equipped with an honesty...

We stayed 2 nights here. a charming small hotel in a lovely spot in Navarra. It's a great value with the media pension-- the dinner both nights was really excellent, and the service is accomodating and friendly. I highly recommend a walk in the Embalses de Leurtza nearby, as well.

A friendly, clean and very attractive family run B & B. The B & B offers half board with a four course evening meal and a very pleasant breakfast all served in the B&B dining room. You can help yourself to wine and bear or make a coffee when you arrive and pay later, sit in the garden and relax....

I decided to come out of our way to stay the night here and am I glad we did! I just wish we were here for more nights. This is a family concern and have they got it right! In the adjacent equally lovely building is their restaurant. Now last night we dined in TripAdvisors number one rated restaurant in...

We had an enjoyable couple of nights in this hotel on our way down to the middle of Spain. The room was pleasant and had everything we needed, the breakfasts lovely, and very traditional. The owner was very helpful, if a little stern, and there was plenty of room to sit outside with our dogs (they were allowed in the...

This is at least the fourth time we have stayed in this hotel. The restaurant is first class (unfortunately this time it was closed because it was a Sunday evening but we were directed to a super posada just ten minutes stroll away). We always get a warm welcome. The rooms are spotless; area very quiet and breakfast adequate. We...

We had a most enjoyable three night stay in this beautiful part of the Spanish Basque country. The little hotel and accompanying restaurant are run by two generations of a Basque family, mother Elizabet and daughters Lorea and Hazaiea. They run them with enthusiasm and close attention to their guests requirements. Our room was very comfortable and nicely furnished in...

I can only add to what others have said. The restaurant is very good, imaginative and well prepared Basque dishes, a genuine surprise. Both food and wine are very well priced. This is a place we will be returning to.

Or friends recommended this small b&b in the Basque region. What a great place. Clean as a whistle and very quiet. Most importantly, the attached restaurant is a true find. Well worth searching it out. Breakfast was more than adequate and the location is convenient to serve as a base to explore the many surprises of Basque Country.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Luzuriaga-Badiola family settled in Donamaria with a plan:To realise the dream of living in the country, specifically in Navarra. To restore a beautiful 19th-century stone house and open its doors to people who wish to eat and stay there. Starting with the restaurant, the following year they opened the small hotel in the adjoining house and, in this way, the project came to be known as Donamariako Benta, a rural hostel with a restaurant.Imanol and Elixabete created this way of life and now guide their daughters, who witnessed the whole process. This no doubt influenced them to obtain academic qualificationsLorea, who has a degree in tourism, serves guests in the dining area of the restaurant in a professional and warm manner, making tourists and regular clients feel more comfortable during their stay. She speaks 3 languages.Haizea has a diploma in cookery from Luis Irizar and, after working at various restaurants on the mainland, manages the restaurant in a wise and enthusiastic manner. ... more   less
