Reviews from Little Hotels Travellers:
|Hi...we are just back from our holiday in France and Spain, in the course of which we stayed in 3 hotels in France ( variable), two Paradors ( OK but a bit old-fashioned, even boring) and at the Hotel Iturregi , just outside Getaria..........this little hotel was superb!|
The staff were absolutely first class, and the building and ambience excellent.
The only downside is the lack of a restaurant. Although one can get a "room service" snack served on the terrace, this is pretty simple. The one restaurant very close by (a mile, I'd guess) is not great. Maybe they could offer a minibus service into the town and back at mealtimes??
|Hotel Iturregi is a new boutique hotel near the port of Getaria. It looked very stylish from the website and with only 8 bedrooms, looked the right size for us.|
We were very pleased and impressed when we arrived. We stayed in the Zarauz room and also had a look at a few other rooms. All were spacious with beautifully designs in a very modern style.
The views all around but particularly towards the sea were also very impressive.
The breakfast was lovely with a wide choice of hot and cold food. There is no restaurant as such but a room service menu was available which was fine when required.
The hotel pool was a good place to relax as were the public areas.
There are a number of nice villages within 30 minutes drive all of which have nice restaurants and San Sebastian is about 45 minutes away.
The staff were very helpful and friendly giving good advise on what to do and where to eat.
All in all a very peaceful and enjoyable stay.
|We had a lovely stay at the above hotel in northern spain, and it was very child friendly, however we do feel the hotel would benefit from having a chef who could cater for guests at the hotel rather than the rather poor snack menu they currently offer. The hotel is in such a wonderful location it seemed a shame to have to travel to find a restaurant, especially with children. Aside from that we enjoyed a lovely stay.|
Check room rates, check availability and make your booking. It's so easy!
