I've been home for a month now, but I keep promising myself to review this excellent hotel.
I know everyone has wonderful things to say about Monika - I can only agree and say that I don't know how she can make so many minutes in a day - she's there at breakfast and she's there at night as well and she still found time to take a sherry with us. She has a compendious knowledge of the town and directed us to excellent restaurants, tapas bars and tabancos as well as arranging a personal tour of the Lustau Bodega (this might have been a mistake as we ended up spending 300 euros on ordering sherry and brandy!), and sending us to the best authentic flamenco show ever.
We had a superior room at the front of the hotel overlooking the square. The bathroom was a delight with its glass sink and the standard of cleanliness was the equal of any I have ever seen.
The rest of the hotel is charming and full of interesting things.
From Jerez we travelled to Cadiz. We spent some time in an "OK" hotel and saw most of the sights, but we never found the same touristic attractions as Jerez. If we had realised how cheap and easy it is to commute by rail, we would have visited Cadiz for a couple of days, but travelled back each evening to the Casa Grande. It is also a very short train journey to Puerto de Santa Maria where you can take a ferry to Cadiz.
