Check-in was quick and efficient, our rooms were gorgeous, in a traditional style and with beautiful Mexican-themed hangings and colours. We were greeted with complementary glasses of sherry and proper cups of tea (a must for English travellers abroad!) which we took to a little table in the shade by the pool. The breakfast buffet was extensive, and excellent. The meal at Del Charro in the evening was also very good, the whole atmosphere was lovely and the staff at the hotel desk extremely helpful, offering cards of introduction to local restaurants (gaining us complementary appetisers), having stamps for sale, and advising us on the best places to go and the times and cost of the town tour bus. Parking is mostly in the shade, and the place is a riot of colour from troughs of plants along the balconies and pots of plants and colourful bedding throughout the grounds. The hotel is close to the town centre with all its amenities, safe to walk around at night and with lots of interesting shops to look at. Would happily stay in Santa Fe for at least a week, and definitely at the Inn of the Governors.
