Reviewed 25 August 2015

This hotel is very basic, but very fairly priced. I was wondering what the catch was when I booked it, but there wasn't one. It was very satisfactory. It is clean and modern and in an excellent location - only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach and downtown. The staff was friendly and helpful, and spoke English. I also emailed a few questions prior to check-in and they responded quickly and were very helpful. A great hotel for a great price.

We stayed 6 nights in a double room. The room was pretty basic: big beds, writing table, TV. Our room didn't have safe and I don't know if there is any at the reception either because nobody told us. AC worked well and wasn't too loud. Toilet was in a separate "room" than the bathroom. Bathroom had a shower and it looked renovated. Wifi was free and worked well.

The buffet breakfast wasn't included with the price. We tried it only couple of times because we thought it was a bit pricey (11 euros per person). There's a bakery near by where you can get fresh croissants and baguettes if you want something else than the buffet.

Hotel is located near street and people's voices can be heard especially at night. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the main beach.

We stayed at Hotel Escale Oceania during a recent trip to Biarritz, due to its location, and the fact it had parking. When we arrived at the hotel, they informed the parking was full and that we should park about 5-10 minutes back up the road out of town. After dropping the bags off, we did just that.
After checking into the room, the general feeling is that the internals of the hotel and the room itself was very tired and poorly maintained. Clean, yes, but the hotel has had a hard life by the looksof it, and the room layout was completely illogical, perhaps converted from previous apartments and split?!?
With regards to position, it is only 5 minutes from the main beach, so excellent. The breakfast at €11 p/p each morning was ok with a range of cereals, yoghurt, breads and eggs/ham/bacon etc.
Great position, yes, but I think it's time the hotel reinvested in a revamp with the good money it no doubt pulls in each summer.

Good location within 15 min walk to main areason and sea front. The immediate loication surrounding the hotel is not that great. Clean rooms. Modern bathroom. WiFi and aircon. Parking is the issue. Not bad.

Room Tip: All have aircon

Rooms are spacious and clean. Location is close enough to old town restaurant area so we could easily walk back to hotel after dinner. Parking is free at nearby streets. Unfortunately breakfast didn't include any fresh vegetables, such as tomatoes, cucumber, sweet pepper, salad, etc. In general, this hotel was good value for money. I could recommend and return again.

This hotel was just up the road from the promenade and a few more minutes away from the slightly more economy area of the town. The hotel itself was modern and well appointed, although it had not been apparent at the time of booking that it takes an economy approach to the staffing, making the reception double as a bar. That being said, the staff were very helpful and spoke English for those of us with little French. We had intended to take a place in the parking, which apparently costs 15€, but it was full. However, the receptionist gave us a plan and showed us where parking was free - essentially all round the hotel and we found a space in no time. Commenting on my favourite critique, breakfast was 11.5€ and so we went to the town were it was available for 4.5€.
