“Nice Place and Will Come Again”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

We stayed here last week and will be be back again as Vejer is a place we have to spend more time in.

Nice, clean rooms with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. If I Had any complaints it would be that there was a smell of drains sometimes in the bathrooms.

Nice breakfast and and adequate for the establishment.

This is a really nice small hotel with a lot of character, great views from our room and we had a warm welcome. Just a shame that the room wasn't as warm; my wife had to put on a cardigan to go to bed! The included breakfast was OK and nothing to criticise although the room you have it in is nothing to write home about.

This isn't a hotel for those who can't manage walking up a bit of a hill from the car parking space (if you are lucky) by the Plaza de España. But I would certainly recommend it.

The town of Vejer de la Frontera is a great place for a week stroll, we stayed at La Botica hotel and is a nice location, very close to the towns center and the restaurants area. All the staff is friendly and helpful, you wont find any xtra commodities; the room has small windows, the breakfast is good enough, but the overall experience is very positive and the small hotel has its own charm.

Room Tip: all the room options are very similar

Hotel is situated in the heart of the old town-spotlessly clean and air conditioned.Wi fi connection available if you sit in foyer. Some reviews criticise the breakfast-bread, jams, coffee/juice/cerals-but this is the only real negative. Hotels in Vejer are not likely to be like your 4 star chain hotels in any case. Stayed in 2 other places in Vejer-and this is the best we ve experienced.Would happily return.

Fantastic place, very well renovated and clean! Very central, with a great view from our silent and bright bedroom, good breakfast, nice and friendly staff! On top of that, the old village of Vejer de la Frontera is absolutely splendid and offers very nice food, too! A connection to the Internet is available, too, but only in the main areas. Anyway, this is a place I would love to go back to!

This is our second visit to La Botica. Our first was booked on line, not really knowing what we would get. We wanted somewhere roughly an hour away from the port as we run trips to Morocco. When we got there we hadn't really appreciated the distance from the car park for our clients to bring their bags to the hotel, it's about a 10 min walk up hill. But my goodness me, when you get there it really is worth it. My advise is to email them and ask for a map and take a "light" overnight bag, if you are not fit or have a family. We did have a few grumbles from our clients but it really is worth the walk.
During both of our stays all of our clients we treated with utmost care. La Botica has a wonderful calm, tranquil atmosphere and although there was a young family staying on the ground floor next to us, incredibly peaceful. The rooms are simply but beautifully decorated. Wifi is available. Breakfast is your normal Spanish B & B style, very plentiful. You have to remember this is not a hotel!!
Owners can recommend restaurants or it is very easy to find a bar sample wonderful tapas.
A wonderful town, fantastic history, well worth spending a couple of nights here!!
I have read the previous comments and cannot say that we have had the same experience. I totally agree that the music playing during a festival must be very annoying but we slept on the ground floor, next to a small family and was not disturbed by any household duties only the gentle chatting of the child next door. There is a separate wing to Le Botica, to the right of the reception, completely away from the area the lady commented about. Perhaps she could have asked to move rooms? Whilst we were there they were rebuilding the plaza, using heavy duty machinery, this didn't disturb us either. I think in the day, noise really doesn't travel as badly.
The customer service we have was fantastic. The owner could not have put herself out further to accommodate us. We will be using them again.

Room Tip: Views are better from the second floor. First floor rooms open onto a little interior courtyard that...

My first piece of advice about Vejer in general is not to go there anytime between August 10th to 24th if you value a decent night's sleep. There is a night-time festival in honour of the Patron Saint of Vejer and there was very loud music playing in Plaza De Espana each of the four nights we were there. The Plaza is very near La Botica so we had terrible sleep. Our last night there was Friday the 24th and the music finished at around 6 a.m. Naturally this is not the fault of the owners. However, back to the hotel! Initially I thought it was beautiful, full of character and everything we would want for a relaxing four night stay. It took us some time to find it but that is the quaintness and charm of the streets of Vejer. We had a lovely double room on the ground floor, facing an indoor patio where people dined in the morning. This sounds charming but the reality was there were people eating breakfast right outside your door and some of them were talking more loudly than others so it wasn't always possible to rise gently out of the 3 or 4 hour sleep we'd gotten from the previous night's disturbance in the Plaza. The floors in the room were tiled which is quite soothing in the heat but also very noisy if you're on the ground floor and people are moving things around in the room above you during the night or early morning. Leaving aside the noise from the festival it was very noisy inside the hotel which really put a damper on our stay. The irony of it is there are notices around the hotel and in people's rooms asking them to observe silence in common areas as a mark of courtesy to other guests. However the lady working there each morning, who is a very nice lady, was making a ton of noise getting breakfast ready and generally carrying out chores on the ground floor from around 8 a.m. I was not impressed with the breakfast either. We had just come from a stay in a fabulous hotel in Seville which charged a similar room rate to La Botica and served us a fresh continental breakfast on the roof top terrace each morning. The breakfast in La Botica was concentrated orange juice, packet muesli and white bread with ham, salami and triangles of processed cheese. Admittedly there was plenty of it but it came across as being a cheap alternative that required little effort on the part of the owners as we served ourselves. I would definitely go back to Vejer again because I loved the town and the people in it but I don't think I would chance the disturbance of a stay in La Botica which is a shame as it appears on the surface to be a very tranquil environment. Finally it is quite surprising given the festivities that were on while we stayed in Vejer that we were not asked if we enjoyed our visit. This hands off approach could be construed as poor customer service. There are signs outside the door of La Botica crediting it with recommendations from Le routard and I'm sure it will continue to get plenty of bookings but it would be wise to pay a little more attention to the customer and to consider ways of minimising noise within the hotel.

Hostal La Botica is situated within the walls of the old town of Vejer de la Frontera, and it owes its name to the fact that it was once the local pharmacy (Botica meaning pharmacy in old Spanish). This has been the inspiration behind the names of the bedrooms, all of which pertain to different schools of pharmacy.La Botica could be described as a home-hotel; we would like our guests to feel like welcome visitors in our home, rather than clients, and we believe that this is the best place to stay in Vejer.We have placed particular emphasis upon creating comfortable rooms in which the charm of the building itself, its location, and the views offer the defining character. ... more   less
