We stayed for 2 nights incl. breakfast on a special rate that was so special in fact (as cheap as chips) that we expected to get no surprises, no extras, just basic bed & coffee. But .... we were in for surprises alright! We got to the hotel late, at 9pm, tired from a 3 hour drive through a storm and hungry, with 2 hungry tired kids in tow. The first thing we did was to sit in the Cataplana restaurant and eat dinner. The meal was simple but of the quality of the meat was fantastic ... so tender! The next priority ... because of the storms I came with a huge bag full of wet clothes that I didn't get the chance to run through a drier, hoping to find a place that would dry our clothes. Before I even finished asking, the clothes were whisked away. Not only did they dry our clothes, they ironed them and folded them ever so neatly and they were all ready for me at 8am! and ... they did not charge for this HUGE favor! Just for that I will be back! The kids stayed free. The rooms and the entire hotel was absolutely perfectly warm ... no need to even use the a/c even though there was a gail blowing outside! That was very important to us and the children's comfort. Breakfast was not very varied but more than we expected for the price we paid so no complaints there! We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant the 2nd night and again it did not dissapoint! Big portions and of the highest quality! The hotel was extremely clean and our rooms tidied up & cleaned perfectly while we were out. For a 3 star we didn't expect so much! We have experienced some really dodgy 3 star hotels! A simple, clean, comfortable, warm place to stay! Would stay again! Improvements: more staff connectivity with guests, a remodeling could boost this hotel to a 4.star easily, especially given it's location ... a beautiful view!
