Equipment of your room:

On the 1st floor of the station, 4 rooms are installed in the former SNCF function accommodation, 3 have been created above the goods hall (FRET) and the PMR room has been fitted out in place of the office of the station master. Only the high oak staircase and the floors have been preserved, the renovation has been complete in order to offer you healthy and comfortable rooms. We were very attentive to safety standards and chose as much healthy materials as possible for the renovation and equipment of the room (furniture, natural latex mattresses, linen bed linen).

The key: Handed over upon arrival, your key must be left on the board on the ground floor at the level of your room number. This allows us to identify your presence and your wish without ambiguity:

Key hung on the board = you are absent from the hotel and we can do the cleaning in your room.

Key not present on the board = you are present in the hotel and / or you do not want us to do the cleaning.

When you leave, please hand over your key to us!

Television:Each room is equipped with a TV and a remote control. Please report any malfunctions to us. You have access to the main French channels and TNT. The rooms are soundproofed, however, please ensure everyone's peace by moderating the volume!

Bed and bathroom linen : We have chosen washed linen bed linen for its quality and robustness as well as for its rather respectful cultivation method. We will not change your sheets during your stay except for a stay of more than a week or on your request. Ditto for the bathroom linen which will eventually be changed only after 4 days. Each bathroom is equipped with a towel dryer to prevent the bath sheets from remaining wet. We preferred to entrust part of the maintenance of our linen to ESAT Gurmençon and we wash most of the linen in the hotel-restaurant internally.

An additional pillow is available in each bedroom: in the bottom drawer of your wardrobe or at the top of your closet.

In your bathroom, you will find shampoo in a dispenser as well as shower gel and a donkey milk soap from herds raised in Béarn and processed at ESAT Colo-Coustau de Lescar (64).

We believe that hotels and restaurants can contribute to great synergy and be a wonderful showcase for a region if it turns away from wasteful reflexes. Thank you for helping us in this process!
