We booked this hotel through the Internet and found it a bit pricey but we booked anyway. The actual hotel was a bit hard to find even with the Navigator in the car. But once we found it we loved it. The hotel is older and looks more like and apartment building. The reception staff was very friendly and welcoming.... More

Basic fabric of hotel is old and tired and in need of a major refurbishment. I'll never understand the 4 star rating. Staff were very helpful and understanding especially when we complained that our room was smelling to stale tobacco. We were assured that the whole hotel was non-smoking and we were immediately shown to a different room. It was... More

A great place at a good price. Breakfast great buffet. Staff don't mind me trying Spanish. They are very patient. Would be good to have a kettle in the room to make a cup of coffee. Swimming is a proper pool next door but I haven't had time to get there. I need a pass from reception. If they organised... More

Looking through other reviews I wonder what people see and expect. First the hotel is in Spain so it's unlikely English will be the first language. The rooms are massive, always spotlessly clean. Staff very accommodating and always helpful regarding restaurants and bars As for location, it's a 5 min drive from the ferry or 45 mins scenic walk. If... More

Clean tidy good rooms nice breakfast. Sets you up for a days travelling. Oh and its 10 mis by car from the ferry port. Parking is a bit restricted we always book the garage when we book. Very steep entry / exit but good car park.

We were really excited about staying at this hotel at the end of a trip around northern Spain, however when we arrived our room had a funny smell. Initially I thought it was insect repellent and we thought it would resolve with airing the room. We however later discovered that the stench was in fact mould and in quite a... More

The hotel needs refurbishment to be brought up to standards but it is clean, spacious and good service. It is a bit far from bars at night but it is 5 minutes and 5 euros taxi away. It is just outside the football stadium and close to the sardinero beach.The decor at the bar is outdate to a more modern... More
