we spent 3 nights in the hoel in the beggining of November. The hotel and rooms are very nice cosy and cleen. As the hotel name says Patagonia can have changing weather with strong winds and showers. Coming to the cosy hotel room, lounge with the books and games and leaving room is a great relife. Breakfst is very good and the hotel offers a uniqe one- express breakfast- if you need to start early (and I mean very early- like 4 or 5 am ) you can notify the front desk the night before and they will serve you in the leaving room coffeee, juice and some things froom the bakery.
I recommend the hotel gift shop. Though I never shop in these shops- this one has avery nice collection of knitted stuff in a special room and the packed shop has a verity of small nice gifts in reasonable prices-+ a nice lady in charge.
The hotel is within walking distance form the main steet and the birds lagoon where you can wahtch the native species. It is highly recomended to walk along the main steert to the ovelooking hill and watch the sunset on the mountains in front- it is facinating.
Do not miss the Calafate ice cream- especially the goat milk one !!!
We enoyed our stay and highly recommand the place
