Guestbook Reviews

- We can’t say enough good things about our stay at the Primrose. Philippe, the owner seemed to be at our beck and call and looked after our needs so well. The rooms were kept very clean, the dinners were excellent, the wine reasonably priced. It was nice to order a bottle of local wine and if not finished, that actually happened once, it was at your table the next evening. Philippe caters to cyclists and that was really nice as we met and enjoyed visiting with other cyclist from many countries.

- Four of us (two couples) stayed here for six nights on a cycling trip to the Pyrenees.The facilities for cyclists are great, with a capacious secure bike storage area and some basic tools available. The hotel is right at the foot of the Hautacam and the Aubisque and just down the valley from Tourmalet and Luz Ardiden. The food is plentiful and excellent value.

- I stayed here as part of a group of cyclists to use as base for riding the local roads. The hotel offers great cycle-specific facilities such as secure, underground storage for bikes, a drying room for hanging up kit and an optional pasta course at dinner. The air-conditioned rooms were particularly welcome at the beginning of July when there as a heatwave. The proprietor Philippe and his wife Valerie were extremely attentive and always on hand to answer questions, and to serve coffee and cold beers on the terrace whenever requested.


Open from May until October, this hotel is a family run comfortable 2 star hotel restaurant belonging to the Logis de France network. We are off the main street, in front of the Casino’s big park and just down the road from the town centre. We have 26 sound proofed rooms all with en suite facilities, satellite TV, telephone, safe, alarm clock and hairdryer (on request from reception). Free access to Wireless Internet is available.
