What our customers say
"My stay in Dax"
Arrived at the hotel and was a bit dubious about the area but my fears were unfounded as we found it to be a nice area to walk around and very safe. The hotel also put me at ease with its professional looks inside and extremely courteous staff. Restaurant......5 star The head waiter was superb.
"The day after the festival "
On arriving in Dax we found the town recovering from what looked like a very heavy week of partying. The clean up operation had only just started and the old town was really badly littered with broken glass and discarded drinks everywhere so we headed straight back to the hotel. The reception staff were amazing very friendly and professional and suggested we use the Spa facilities. Great idea , thermal pool, sauna and steam were invigorating and saved the evening. Room was clean and tidy and breakfast the next morning excellent, left feeling fresh and well fed. Many thanks, Ian and Jacky
