“A little gem”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We booked this hotel as a stop over whilst driving from southern Spain to the UK. The fact that it was reasonably close to the motorway and dog friendly was a major factor in choosing it. As it turned out this hotel is a little gem, the staff were fantastic the room was excellent and the cost was extremely reasonable. We arrived at the hotel in the early evening after many hours of driving and the lady on reception asked whether we would like to have something to eat. She then suggested that if we would prefer our meal could be served in the public bar area instead of the restaurant so the dogs could stay with us. This was really appreciated by us and we had a great 3 course meal with drinks for approximately €40.
We cannot speak too highly of this hotel and the next time we travel to Spain by car we will definitely stay there again

Fed up driving we decided to find a place to spend the night and we were pleased to find this hotel offering good accommodation at a reasonable price. There were few guests but the restaurant was open and served good quality food. The staff were friendly and the service was good. The car park can be difficult to navigate when trying to exit. It was disappointing in a quality hotel to find "n" tv channels all in Spanish.

The location is good for onward travel to southern Spain as it is just off the motorway but far enough not to be troubled by noise. The staff on reception during out 2 day stay were very good, every time we needed something they always did their best to oblige. The rooms were large and well equipped. The car park can get tight at the front of the hotel but if you go around the back it is empty. We had evening meals and a snack meal in the hotel both were excellent. The reason for the contradiction is the breakfast. although the reception staff did all they could it was very poor with lack of coffee and food stuffs. This was strange as the quality of the evening meal was so good.I would have given the hotel a much higher rating had they got this right. We ordered a taxi via reception to take us to the station [about 1 mile] so we could travel to Burgos this was a 5E each way on the taxi and if you get the right train its about 6E on the train[single]. This is the best way to travel there as its a good 1/2 hour and parking is a pain. The station is out the town catch the bus in 1E outside station bus to placa des espania.

Room Tip: get into breakfast very early it might be better

We have stayed here three times now and on two of them we have neen the only guests.
This is a real shame as the hotel is very well situated, clean and has friendly staff. The rooms are of a good size, free wifi is available in them, but no English TV.
The all inclusive breakfast was very good considering we were the ony ones there, with plenty of fresh coffee, milk and orange juice.
I would certaily recommend the hotel, but wonder how long it can remain open with so few clients.

We have stayed previously at the hotel and the first time we greatly enjoyed the food served in the restaurant. On the subsequent occasions we booked in the restaurant was closed. The first excuse was that they had had a function the previous day and the staff were resting. The excuse on another occasion was that they were closed due the CRISIS. On both these occasions we were almost the only guests staying there. We had to get in the car to go into town to find somewhere to eat. There is NOWHERE of any quality, indeed practically nowhere to eat at all in the town.

This time the restaurant was open but apoart from a solitary man we were the only people staying in the hotel and eating in the restaurant! I do not know how they keep going. The menu was laughable! They handed us a menu in 'english' which was hilarious and completely unintelligible - no doubt translated by some Internet site. We asked for the Spanish menu and chose from that. However there was really nothing oin the menu we wished to eat - most of it contained offal of some sort or the dreaded Bacalao which is always far too salty.

The room was clean, as usual, but there are signs of wear and tear. The bathroom is not really well enough lit. The shaving mirror thing spun round wildly and would not stay in position so applying makeup was extremely difficult. Likewise trying to see the back of my head when hairdressing was impossible. The top and basin in the bathroom are fast too deep so you cannot get close to the mirror. These rooms are no doubt designed by MEN.

The bar downstairs is deserted and the poor receptionist has to leave her desk to serve or make a drink! At breakfast time, instead of being allowed to sit in the delightful breakfast room [all laid out nicely with tablecloths, cutlery and china] we were asked to sit in the bar at very small cafe tables. Not stylish at all. Instead of being able to help ourselves from the buffet we had to ask for what we wanted and she brought it. Who are they expecting at the nicely laid out tables?

We will not being returning.

The hotel grounds are tatty and trees so high it is no wonder people just drive past - the place is invisible. I feel sorry for them but on the other hand, when they do have a client, they should be much more accomodating and welcoming.

Room Tip: Don't get a room facing the road as there is traffic noise.

The hotel was fine. The rooms are large and we furnished. We had a room on the road side so a little noisy but after the drive I couldn't care less, slept well and need to be up early anyway.

Would ask for the far side away from the road next time.

Would not choose the breakfast option but would use their cafe instead, mainly because we were in a hurry to get going.

The evening meal was really good. The fish was perfectly cooked.

No tea or coffee in the room but ha ho we got a good deal on last room.

If you miss the A1 road as we did, don't worry as there are signposts to the hotel in the town

Room Tip: The rooms on the front next to road have traffic noise. Might try the ones Athens the rear next time...

We have used this hotel on two occasions travelling north to Santander. Excellent staff very helpful
Top floor rear rooms are best. Sound proofing in Spain does not exist. Food good but the normal nonsense about serving dinner from 9pm applies. Rooms are modern and very clean as are bathrooms. All in all a pleasant hotel to stay in.
