I am wondering about the high appraisals of the most of the other reviews. Our experience differed. We stayed at the annex on the first floor. The size of the room was adequate. The furniture was between old-fashioned and outdated. The room lighting was absolutely inadequate.

Dear Daydreamer, It is with great attention that I read your message and I thank you for it. I am absolutely sorry to read that your experience in our hotel did not meet your expectations. It seems that some elements concerning your request could not be apprehended as we would have liked to make your stay pleasant. . Indeed, reading your message, we understand that you were disturbed by the fact that your room does not offer enough lighting, we could have added a lamp. We understand perfectly and would be happy to help you if we had this information when you were there. On the other hand, we are an eco hotel, hence the toilet paper instead of the roll and it's a choice! The furniture is furniture for certain moments, which gives the charm of our hotel. 15 min to go to the beach ?! You do not have to take the right path because even when walking slowly, you are at most 5 minutes! Regarding the price, 9.50 € for a buffet breakfast we do not find it excesive Dear Madam, I remain at your disposal for any comments and suggestions. I apologize and ask you to be assured of my best consideration. Flavie DEBIEN Recepcionnist

We stayed here in June for 4 nights and loved it! We chose a seaview room which had a balcony and fabulous views over the bay. The hotel is very quaint and perhaps a little old fashioned but we loved it! Staff very friendly. We did not eat at the hotel so can’t comment on food.

We spent two nights at the Goelands, in a wonderful, sunny, double room with plenty of space for the children, and wonderful double doors opening up on a balcony facing the sea (of which you get a glimpse from the balcony). We were in the red and white house without the

I have been coming to this hotel since I was a kid with my grand parents. It is a charming place that feels like a traditional Basque home. Great for families and I've always loved the food there. The service is always very polite, and the location just up from the beach line,
