    Being unable to take advantage of the special menu for the evening meal. We were told that menu was not for us, it was for the tourist. (Obviously a special group). This menu was on the restaurant information outside the door.

    Very good breakfast

    We booked one night with booking for 66 Euros and everything was perfect. Wanted to stay 2 nights longer, the price on biking said 132, I wanted to book directly in the hotel and we agreed on 142, when I had to pay I had to pay 161... and as the agreement was only verbal I couldn’t prove... so I had to pay... better only to do with booking next time...

    No air conditioning. Lighting in Bathroom was very poor. Shower head had no wall fixing so you had to stand and hold it and/or keep turning it on/off otherwise water went everywhere. Breakfast had lots of food if you were into Bread, Cake and dried Fruit. Only one choice of cold meat one choice of cheese and a fruit salad. No fresh fruit.....

    Accommodation was clean, Beds were reasonably comfortable. Dinner menu was good.

    I had a room with no air con this time and I have to say didn't realise some rooms did not have this facility.

    This hotel is a great stopping over point for me on my way to Alicante Spain. I think this trip must be my 5 or 6th time of using this Hotel and it never disappoints with both its accommodation and resturant, I shall be staying again. Well done all the staff at the Hotel.

    The signs for the car park were not immediately obvious but when eventually found the parking arrangements were good.

    The proximity to the lake which the room overlooked and around which we enjoyed evening and morning walks. We will return, perhaps for a longer stay in order to explore Dax.

Was in a nice setting overlooking the lake but unfortunately our room overlooked the car park. Arrived quite late for a one night stay and left early next morning so didn't make use of the many facilities at the hotel, maybe next time.
