Hotel Zubieta in Biscay is typical of what we love about so many a Basque building: intricately pretty design inside and out. It is then perhaps surprising to think this 18th century edifice was once just the stables of Zubieta Palace. Now it has a homely interior, from the reception area to the bar to the living room. Lekeitio itself is an excellent example of a little Basque coastal town where visitors can enjoy strolling around and having a pintxo (local snack) in one of the many pintxo bars. The hotel is also a five-minute stroll from the Lekeitio Port and its beach.
The 24 rooms offer a range of ways to stay here: from standard doubles to standard double rooms but with a sitting area, a junior suite and triple and quadruple family rooms. The rooms are also differentiated by their variety of different decors, with various different looks to each of them. Rooms are also rather spacious and bright.

Good quality food offered in the café and for breakfast. Excellent location: near the port, old quarter and beaches in a quiet spot, closed off from the outside world between the walls of an old palace and farmhouses, with gardens providing a feeling of proximity to nature.
Hotel Zubieta is situated in beautiful surroundings, in a quiet location and encircled by nature. The rooms, public areas, terrace and garden are all brilliant and importantly the hotel has a car park which is free, given that it can otherwise be difficult to find a parking space. The staff are very attentive, always ready to help. Breakfast is excellent and you can enjoy it out on the terrace. We had a great time.
