Stopped over here on the drive down from Calais to Estepona. Nice, smart modern hotel on the edge of town - easily accessible from the main motorway routes north and south. I found it directly by using my TomTom but didn't look closely enough at the price rating. Really too flash a hotel for a one-night stopover but room was excellent. Car parking easy and convenient. Nice little bar-cafe next next door. Staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

Fantastic hotel room is large and comfortable, a hotel restaurant is never the best decor but believe me the food is fantastic the chef is on is way to a michellin star and with a surprise the price for a 6 course meal including 1/2 bottle of wine it's only 35.00 euros. I congratulate all staff and management for making possible this to happen.

This is a great Hotel and the stay was really great.

Freindly persons, claen rooms and a great bar as well.

The distance to the centere of the city is just 10 € with the taxi

We had dinner in the resturant and we got served quit nicly. The price was accetable as well.

For the breakfeast you have a big selection of different things. We had Vegeterian with us and he got just the things he is going for

Seated 5 km. outside the center of the small town Lakua is probably the most luxury hotel of the area...Big rooms without superb views (just big houses around) but with nice facilities. Also, very clean.
The breakfast buffet is somewhat average. The reastaurant is excellent with a nice chocie of meats and a very good stuff even without speaking modest English! But they serve you fast and gently...The stuff in reception is very friendly and helpful.
Not a cheap one hotel and no for travellers that looking for bargains...Sure is not a bust for the money that someone will spend...

This Hotel is very elegant and very clean.
It is also very beautiful and peaceful. The stairs are so nice, the breakfast place is very clean and comfortable. The entrance door is a turning door which I personally love and a normal door.
Also the toilet's are very clean. There are sometimes different activities to enjoy!

Chosen as a stop-over heading south from Bilbao to southern Spain having arrived on an evening ferry. The hotel is very close to the main road network - but otherwise in a residential suburb with no amenities anywhere close-by. Large underground carpark, but plenty on street parking right outside. Modern style reception and lobby, check-in process good. The room and bathroom were huge and luxurious (maybe slightly tired in places).
The hotel feels like a business hotel more set up for seminars/conferences than tourists.
The main restaurant was either basic buffet - or expensive tourist type menu. The bar is a small kiosk in the lobby. It lacked atmosphere and was expensive (and empty). The cafe bar attached to the hotel wasn't good - we thought we had wandered into the staff canteen (also empty).
We headed out and found a little cerveceria 10 minutes away where we had a great dinner and drinks for around €20, sitting with the locals.
Skipped breakfast - expensive, checked out easily and stopped off at an excellent truck stop on the motorway for the usual Spanish breakfast - excellent and cheap.
Would use the hotel if in a hurry, but for the money could do much better elsewhere.
