Which Hotel in the inland Pays Basque Region?

I finally decided on an itinerary for an upcoming trip to France in September. My DH and I will be spending 4 nights in Blois (decompress from the flight and enjoy a few of the chateaux), 5 nights in San Sebastian, 4 nights in the north inland Pays Basque region and then 4 nights in Paris.

I've narrowed down my choices for the Pays Basque region to 5 hotels. We love good food, pretty scenery, quaint towns. I think we will LOVE this region. I am hoping to get feedback on the following hotels:
Auberge Basque - Saint Pee sur Nivelle
Auberge Ostape - Bidarray
Relais du Silence Argi Eder - Ainhoa
Hotel Ithuria - Ainhoa
Maison Olhabidea - Sare

All of these hotels have restaurants, which we hope to take advantage of maybe two of the nights. the other two nights, I hope to try a couple of the other restaurants in the area. My husband isn't crazy about cramped rooms, so I was leaning towards Auberge Ostape, but it is one of the pricier hotels in the area. I also liked the balconies and views from the rooms. I have read mixed reviews about hotel staff, so was hoping to get feedback.

The two hotels in Ainhoa would probably be more central and more convenient. Auberge Basque would be all about the food.
I'm having a tough time deciding because they all sound wonderful!

Thanks in advance for your input.
PS: I still owe you all a trip report from our Dordogne trip last October. It's coming!
