The Hôtel Relais Saint-Jacques is a friendly little hotel on the main street in St Jean de Luz. The hotel is in a rather old building, but it looks like the interior was removed and reconstructed. The quality of the facility is very high. There are new elevators and only 4 floors, so there is no waiting for the lift. Total rooms, 17.
While the rooms are a little small, the beds are large and comfortable. The bathroom is large and very clean. The only negative it it sometimes takes a while for the hot water to hit the 4th floor in the morning.
The air-conditioner is very effective and quiet, so you can be cool and not listen to a machine rattle all night.
Unique Quality: The breakfast is mostly continental. There are breads, cerial, jams, meat, hard boiled eggs and fruits. If the owner's wife is in the hotel she will cook eggs for you. Some of the early morning staff don't offer to cook. She was extremely pleasent and helpful, as were all the staff. The best part of the hotel is the friendly feeling you get there.
Directions: It is across from the train station on the main road at the traffic circle.
