For over the last 2 years I've spent 2 to 3 days per week in this hotel. Everything was excellent: the receptionist is professional and welcoming, the rooms are clean and tidy, you've got a large breakfast choice and the staff is at your service. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have home like-good night-sleep.

Location in Bayonne among a few shops and cafes. Not a particularly convenient with areas for strolling and shopping but the hotel was clean and very comfortable. It is basically a comfortable city hotel.

Lovely hotel in Grand Bayonne. The hotel is within walking distance of the major sites in town, many restaurants, and the train station. The rooms are pretty large, and there is a nice buffet breakfast available. There is a cage elevator, that is actually pretty large by European standards. Great place to stay, would not hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed here in 2002 and always wanted to return. Well, we are not disappointed. As good if not better now. Lovely helpful reception staff. Comfortable, clean room. Good private facilities. Free WiFi. Only downside parking in carpark nearby at €16 per day. Good buffet breakfast. Excellent location. Lots of bars/restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommended.

This hotel is lying in the center of beautiful Bayonne, and is within walking distance of the railway station. The room I got was large, with a large bathroom and a bed which was broader than it was long. The bed could easily have fitted 3 persons. I also appreciated the tea-cooker and the minibar.

This hotel is in the centre of Bayonne and therefore convenient. However, the breakfast is stupidly overpriced. The rooms were tried and the bar was closed. The hotel was virtually empty which perhaps say it all.
