“Really enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Our family of 4 stayed for 4 nights here and we found it most enjoyable. We had a car so travelling to the coast, the town centre etc was not a problem for us. What we found most surprising is the hotel restaurant and bar which is excellent. This place is frequented by locals and also acts as a bit of a truck stop at times but don't be put off. The 1/2€ tapas in the bar are lovely. Equally the a la carte range is good value and very tasty. We tried the set menu too for €9 per person and were very satisfied with the plentiful and well cooked plates provided. However, for some reason you can only eat inside the restaurant with this option so for the remaining time we chose a la carte and sat outside where, because of the set up and fact it was fairly quiet, our kids had space to play. Indeed, the owners' grand children often came to play with our children. It was lovely to see them getting on so well despite a language barrier. The staff were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and that is the case even since our departure as I left my iPad at the hotel. They secured it for me, sent me a picture of it so I knew they had it and have been keeping in touch with me whilst I arrange it's return. An excellent hotel to which I wouldn't hesitate to return if ever in the area again.

Location:
On the outskirts of Antequera , good road communications for our car hire – easy 40 km drive on motorway from Malaga airport
Good touring base for attractions outside Antequera ie Ronda / National Parks/ Donkey Sanctuary / Lobo (Wolf) park/ Flamingo lake / hill top towns particularly Mijas (close to Malaga) Would also recommend old town Malaga The 3 prehistoric ‘dolmen’ sites around Antequera also worth a visit
Hotel:
Very helpful staff / pleasant comfortable room – some face out to olive groves but be aware that the hotel is on a main roundabout so it is not traffic noise free . Bed comfortable, Noise inside hotel could be irritating to some largely because there are no carpets but hard floors/marble The whole hotel is very clean
We booked Bed and breakfast and this is provided in the bar It is minimal choice and content but sufficient for what we required Given that the hotel only cost £40 for B and B it would be harsh to complain!
Antequera:
Nice historic town with some interesting sites but feel it is important to have a hire car to enjoy surrounding area fully lovely lakes and countryside all within reasonable distance

Room Tip: room fully facing olive groves

The hotel was clean and quiet, but it also was located far from the heart of town. We stayed here while we were cycling through Andalucia, and we found that it was not the best location for us. We had to take a cab into town. For the cab fare out and back, it would have been less expensive for us to stay in town and more fun!

Excellent hotel. Really good food in restaurant. Breakfast a bit chaotic and quirky, until you work out how it works. Lovely atrium inside the building. Just too far to walk into Antequerra (especially when it's hot)

We found this hotel literally by spotting it from the road as we drove toward Antequera seeking a place for one night. We were attracted by its location - easy driving distance to the town centre but still located well outside where it offers easy in/out by car and free parking. The room was very nice, clean and reasonably priced. There is a restaurant adjacent but we did not try that because we wanted to check out old town Antequera that evening and found dinner there. Breakfast was included in the room price, served in the bar just off the lobby. The breakfast meal consisted of coffee/tea plus a toasted ham sandwich on the usual fine bread. If you have a car this is a great place to stay on a visit to Antequera.

Reviewed 26 September 2012

I would recommend this hotel to family, friends, couples, business and solo travelers. Even Anglophiles and non-Spanish speakers will find the staff here friendly and helpful. The hotel is either brand new or has been wholly remodeled/refurbished. I didn't make the booking so I don't know anything about the hotel beyond my visit and the fact that the price was really good. The hotel itself and rooms are clean. Stairs, elevator, courtyard - clean. Beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are clean and new, with excellent water pressure. Area is pretty quiet, but sometimes the resturant/bar can be very noisy and busy --BUT once you close your door, your room is quiet.

The room staff visited and cleaned daily. The entire hotel was clean, room, bathroom, toilet all clean and new. They supplied a shower cap, shower gel/shampoo, razor and shaving cream, bar soap, toothbrush & tiny toothpaste, and even a comb if you needed it. There was a fridge in the room and a large closet. Excellent Hotel, but for a nice quiet meal, I recommend the small (almost invisible) little restuarant 3 minutes stroll on the main road toward Antequera. It has a patio surrounded by shrubs and a reed canopy. It is right on the road, and quiet unassuming -- but the food is good and reasonably priced. (the menu is not in English though, so bring your dictionary).

More Details regarding hotel stay: All of the HOTEL staff was very friendly and quite helpful. Many speak some English (and I shamfully admit my Spanish is quite weak). The breakfast they supply is through the restuarant attached to the Hotel. You get a ticket for coffee and toast. Three of the four mornings we were there this included a plate of ham & cheese. The first morning we only were given our choice of coffee drink and toast (very nice toast). Then on the following mornings we got a plate of ham & cheese also. I didn't know what to expect, but I think my inability to speak Spanish put some of the older restuarant staff off (as they seemed a bit grumpy) This was not unusual for a number of places we went. The younger staff at the hotel and bar/restuarant were very nice and seemed in a more cheerful mood. The bed was very comfortable and you had access to your rooms climate control. The balcony we had (Rm 201) looked out over a round about, fountain, and vast landscape. It was beautiful. The traffic was busy at times, but never very noisy and once you shut the door, it was very quiet. One night there was a wedding party at the hotel and quite loud and crowded at the restuarant and outside, but once we shut our doors -- quiet. It was wonderful.

We chose this hotel because it was easy to find, away from teeny windy streets of a beautiful town. If you've ever driven in Europe you know the best and oldest villages are hard to navigate in a vehicle. This hotel is near Antequerra, a quick taxi ride to the center of town(about 7 Euros) or a slightly (not too pretty walk) uphill (perhaps quite hot) 40min walk to the center of town -- but stop in and check out the ancient Dolmens on the way! The walk is on roads for about .5 miles, then you hit a dirt road and get away from traffic (but turn right when you hit pavement again or you might miss the Dolmens).

Only negatives: No pool.

A 3* Hotel on the road side. ... close to Malaga and close to all other major location. Clean tidy and normal size room no thrill ttitude. .. plenty of parking space. .. in house spanish style coffe bar and restaurant. Sure worth the money, spacious bathroom with shower/bath. We stay for one night and have really no complains. Even that the Hotel is on the roads side no traffic noise. .... Wifi signal could be boosted, room 104 had no or ver weak signal. Facebook and Skype seem to be blocked.
