On arrival at the hotel, I found it was in a great town called mill valley, lots of yummy mummy's and wealthy retirees'. Great restaraunts, coffee shops, gift shops, deli store and an excellent thearte.
The hotel was small but friendly the welcome was warm and genuine. Bottled water was offered on arrival. I checked in recived my key and was directed to my room, Room 4 on the second floor, I carried my own case as there was no concierge, it was not that type of hotel!
The room was air conditioned, clean, large with a small balcony, that you could not sit on and a lovely and comforable queen size bed. The bathroom was clean and had all you would expect including toiletries.
Breakfast was a self service choice of cereals and cakes, waffles and fruit, coffee and juice. The waiter offered his special choice of coffee which i tried but it was awful, the regular coffee on offer was just fine.
There is a balcony upstairs which over looks the woodland at the rear, but there is not much of a view and it is in shade for most of the time. There are no outdoor facilities, or at least none that I was made aware of!
You park your car underneath the hotel or on the street.
Problem! My room, room 4 had a toilet above it and the breafast peparation kitchen. Through the night the security would use the hotel and the flushing sound was horrible as was the constant footsteps in the kitchen. I closed my bathroom door but the flushing sound was hardly any different it was very very intrusive, as was the footsteps. I put up with it for 3 nights, then made the front desk aware, the noise then subsided for one night and then it continued thereafter for another 3 nights. This is the only problem I had, I fully reccomend the hotel, but make sure you dont get room 4, they know its noisy!
They did offer to compensate me with a free night the next time I go over which is fine, all i wanted was peace and quiet not money off!
Mill valley is a great place to relax and use a centre point for seeing the wider bay area.
