Fodor's Review

This family-run hotel and restaurant over the Nive is a vintage venue (note the 200-year-old oak staircase)—it's also the best value in town. The owners speak Basque, Spanish, French, English, and some German, so communicating is rarely a problem. The cuisine is nourishing, especially the lamb and duck breast.
