We enjoyed the Maison Garnier and liked the location. I would probably not visit the town again but found no fault with this small holding. The room was spacious and the breakfast was fresh and cheerful.

Stayed at Maison Gambetta for 5 nights as base to visit Biarritz, St. Jean de Luz, and interior Pays Basque villages.Great location on Rue Gambetta.A 5 to 10 minute walk from everything--beaches, Centre-Ville, restaurants,shopping. Hotel rooms are spotlessly clean and adequately furnished..The owner(Yves Gelot),his wife and small staff are gracious,hospitable, and helpful .You must appreciate small intimate hotels (7 rooms)...

We were a group of six; my wife and I; our two chidren (aged 6 and 8) and my wifes parents. So not an altogether easy travelling group! BUT, Maison Garnier wasa good place to chill out; very close to everything that you would want to do in Biarritz, like the beach!! But also close to the Market Place (just...

Feels like you are staying in a lovely old house rather than a big grotty hotel. People working there were very friendly. The room was tastefully decorated and a decent size with a nice big bathroom. Very central and a short walk to the beaches. Couldn't recommend it enough. Do yourself a favour... stay at the Maison Garnier.

We were lucky to find Maison Garnier as it is one the nicest hotels we have stayed in. The decor and fittings are fantastic and the bedrooms are large with lots of charachter and charm. The breakfasts are also highly recommended which certainly start the day well. The owners are very friendly and speak good english.

Maison Garnier is in the centre of town, a short walk from shops and beach. It is an elegant corner town house, tastefully furnished. Our rooms were comfortable and elegant, with framed views of historic biarritz and wall hangings. Bathrooms come with old fashioned dinner-plate shower heads. Ceilings are high and windows large and shuttered. Decoration is fresh and the...

I stayed at the Maison Garnier during my first trip to Biarritz, and I was quite pleased. The historic building is bright and well kept. The hotel's public areas are warm and welcoming; the second floor corner room I stayed in was large and comfortable, with lots of windows and a small but serviceable balcony. The breakfast was typically French...
