We were severely mislead by the entry on the Alistair Sawday website which stated that this property was "located at the corner of a quiet street .....". The traffic noise was appalling during day and most of the night for the 5 days we stayed there. In addition, the bar next door had very loud live music on the Thursday & Friday nights which went on into the early morning hours. (We enjoy live music but this was out of key, out of time and far too loud!). On the Friday night/Saturday morning, there was a lot of shouting and yelling, bottle throwing and eventually the police arrived to calm things down. By then, we were on a count-down to leaving on the Saturday morning.
Having said all of the above the hotel staff were welcoming, the bedroom clean and comfortable, the continental breakfast good quality and adequete (although you had to let them know each evening if you wanted breakfast the next day). There was only a small internal lounge area to sit which smelt a little musty. There was no outdoor area to relax. The property itself was centrally located within Biarritz and it was within easy walking distance of all the 'tourist' areas/attraction and many good restaurants.
If you have a reduced hearing problem or are deaf, then this is the hotel for you!
Biarritz itself has been taken over mainly by the Surfing fraternity and is not the well heeled resort that it has been noted for in the past.
