Staying here was just like being at home! Such a comfortable and welcoming guest house. Stunning views from the terrace. Sam and Dave were/are fantastic hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. Am sure I put on a few pounds due to over-eating the lovely pancakes which Dave cooked for breakfast but it had to be done! Would most certainly recommend...

La Mota Vista must have the best view in Alcala la Real. The bedroom windows and terrace look across the beautiful rooftops of the historic town directly towards La Mota, the remains of the fortified town that has been occupied by the Romans, the Moors and ransacked during the Napoleonic wars. The excellent local museum even provides evidence of human...

A great B&B in a living, breathing Andalucian town. We used this as a 9 day base for exploring this part of Andalucia. Easy car access to Granada, Jaen, Cordoba etc. The town itself features the ironically-named 'La Mota' (the speck) - well worth a visit even if just passing through. However Sam and Dave's B&B makes stopping an excellent...
