Had dinner here with family and children, very good quality, good staff, very helpful and value decent too. The courtyards, garden and main reception area meant we were able to have dinner with young children without worrying about where they were or too much about keeping them amused. As we arrived early and asked reception for menus the reception manager... More

We visited NH Castellar in early December and had a great price offer. We would not choose it at regular price since it needs remodelling and be freshened up. Staff was very friendly and proposed two good restaurants in the very charming village of Castellar de la Frontera. As beeing a 4 star hotell, should there be no hair dryer... More

Travelled here in October, and stayed for two and a half weeks whilst visiting family and friends in La Linea and Gibraltar. Having viewed some of the hotels/hostals in those two locations I can say with some confidence that this was the best accommodation in the area at a reasonable price based on the NH web price. The hotel has... More

october 2013, we book for a night and we decide (there is nothing around!) to eat into the hotel. Searching for the room in the dark corridor, we found it. So after a shower in a nice room we go to eat. Disaster!!! The quality of the food is normal but the location no. In front of the bar, during... More

Charming and very efficient welcome to an attractive and immaculately maintained hotel. The atmosphere was gloriously, traditional Andalucian which, combined with 21st century state of the art technology puts it effortlessly in the top league. Room perfect, crisp linen, amazing toiletries and a charming private terrace with beautiful bay tree hedging - we are happy bunnies indeed!

Good hotel, very friendly staff. Quiet location. The arrangement of the room for our reunion meal was more than we expected. Congratulations to all who were involved in organising and delivering gluten free options for all the meals.
