I have stayed here many times and reviewed it once before. Not sure I will stay here the next time I visit Santa Cruz. The location is perfect. Divine to wake up on the cliffs! Lovely gardens. There is a very good breakfast included in the price. There are bagels with cream cheese, home baked scones (delish!) and muffins, boiled eggs ( protein) and fruit salad!! Plus unlimited coffee, tea, hot chocolate, juice. The staff is all amazing. In the winter months there is a complimentary wine and cheese which is a lovely thing to do- sit in the gardens and watch the sun go down with a glass of wine ( sparkling juice for the kiddies). The rooms are small, the bathrooms are small but it is fine. The beds are so comfortable! We stayed on the ground floor in the first group of rooms. I do not recommend these rooms. In these rooms there is noise all through the night. From the road which is right outside the hotel there is a lot of traffic. The ground floor rooms suffer from hearing EVERYTHING from the room upstairs. In addition, there are swinging metal gates which make enough noise to wake you every time they close. There is nothing to be done about the road noise. If you are sensitive to noise at night probably dont stay here. The rooms further from the reception and on the second floor are probably way better.
