A warm welcome. Quality services. A perfect location close to major roads of the Landes department. Welcome to Valérie Franquet's hotel.
“Service, recognition of the guest, comfort and professionalism.”
For Valérie, working in a hotel has always been “obvious”. From a family of hoteliers, this young woman spent a decade earning her stripes in France and abroad before returning to settle in Castets. “I’m a second generation hotelier,” she proudly states having taken over the 56-room establishment from her mother in 2007. That same year the 3-star hotel was awarded a ‘Hospitality Trophy’ by the newspaper Sud-Ouest for hoteliers in the region. “Service, recognition of the guest, comfort and professionalism are our key values.” 15 kilometres from Dax and 15 minutes from the Landes beaches, The Originals City, Hotel Les Bruyères, Dax North is a friendly and comfortable place to stop on the Landes road.

What our customers say
"Stop over during a long journey"
Arrived during the Covid restrictions, all well organised and controlled, a good stay and comfortable room which was very quiet considering it is right next to the motorway, would stay again
"Clean room and friendly staff"
We stayed one night on our way to Spain. The staff were very friendly, the room spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. Unfortunately the air con was not working in our room and with 4 of us in there was a little warm! The lady on reception tried her best to resolve it but there was not much she could do late at night. We were on the second floor so were able to sleep with the window open which was fine and meant it was cool enough - had we been on the ground floor that would not have been possible. There is a good restaurant next door where we had supper and a 10% discount as guests of the hotel. There is also a McDonalds if you prefer.
"Very good "
Excellent stopover , just off main road. Dog welcome. Comfortable room. Excellent restaurant next door.
"Good service in difficult conditions"
We stopped off en route back to UK from Spain during the Covid pandemic. It was a welcome break. We felt safe and welcome. I had mistakingly booked a room for one person and a dog instead of two people and a dog. The receptionist gave us additional toiletries and we were sorted. She also kindly booked us a table for dinner at Hippo, the steakhouse next door. Breakfast was delivered to our room after a good night’s rest. Thank you for a nice stay at a difficult time

Midway en-route from Mojácar,Spain to Caen crossings to UK, this motel is a much needed place to rest up before your second drive home or away, with secure parking %26 a highly recommend restaurant one side or a fast food restaurant the other
"Nice room but unclarity about the arrangement "
We got a double with to single beds but wanted a double bed. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful and changed the room for us. We had booked a €6 parking spot in the underground parking but access was not clearly indicated. We parked the car in front of the hotel in the public parking area and the receptionist told us this was ok as this would be closed of at 24.00 but failed to draw our attention to the secured parking. Bathroom looks tired with a small mould spot. But very friendly and helpful staff. Good location close on motorway when travelling from Portugal back to Holland
"Oasis of calm"
We stopped at Les Bruyeres en-route to Spain. The hotel was very clean and comfortable with a good sized room and bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. We enjoyed a relaxing evening and a good night’s sleep before continuing our journey, it is definitely a hotel I would stay at again for its convenient location and quality of service
Perfect and good localization.
