We chose Hotel Casa Serena from the rating it had on Trip Adviser reviews, plus cost and facilities. We did not want a gym or sauna or room service or late bar or big restaurant. I did not like the photo on their web site of the white plastic tables and bright green plastic chairs. Boy was I wrong. The tables were top rated solid acrylic on stainless basses. The chairs were leather and the green was in keeping with this very clean and crisp reception bar area.
The breakfast room is well designed and spotlessly clean like the rest of the hotel. The choice is continental from the well stocked help your self counter. You had 3 cereal, fresh yoghurt, rolls, croissant, marble cake, crisp bread, 3 types of cold meat, ermantal slices, hard boiled eggs, jams and pastes. Orange juice coffee and tea to drink. It was to look forward too.
We had a room with a balcony looking through lovely trees towards the lake. First thing in the morning was a great site of the sun on the tops of the mountains that possibly, are only half a mile across the lake. We opened both doors and leant on the balcony rail, watching the local traffic go past and hearing the sounds of this lake side country area.
The room has a large bed with room to move around it. ( I am 16 stone and it was easy) The bed has two individual big duvets. (What bliss to have it to myself ALL night). We slept like logs every night on this very comfortable bed. there are power points either side of the bed. In the wardrobe is a safe that you set with your own code, very handy. The room has two straight back chairs and a dressing table. The bathroom has a good shower, WC, Bidet and sink. The mirror is illuminated and the fitted hair dryer is powerful.
We were so lucky to have chosen an hotel we are going back to next year and that we were so lucky to make a good choice on our first holiday for 20 years, partially due to trip Adviser reviewers. Thanks to all of you.
