We stopped off here due to the good reviews & location as it was just off the highway. What a find! : )
We parked up on the FREE car park & were greeted by Hector (lovely chap!) who found a room for us & promptly checked us in. He also gave us a voucher for the casino & the hotel operates a FREE shuttle bus which is really nice. We’re not gamblers so we didn’t use the voucher, but it was a nice touch especially if your stuck for something to do in the evening. : )
Our room (416) was gorgeous! We had a king size bed, spacious room, it was spotless! We also had the usual room supplies – microwave, fridge, sofa, free wifi, & loads of mirrors! There was a cool charging unit on the desk with USB ports (my boyfriend really wants one!) as well as lots of plug sockets.
We popped by to see Hector before we went for something to eat & he kindly gave us a list of restaurants & recommended some of the better ones. On our return he also changed some coins with us as we were returning home in a few days & in the UK you can’t change coins back at the exchange desks. He was great & made our wallets a lot lighter…in a good way! : )
I nipped down late in the night for a hot chocolate as they have 24/7 tea/coffee facilities which is handy.
We had a lovely night’s sleep that night & even though it’s next to the highway we didn’t hear any road noise. : )
The free breakfast the following morning was good. Lots of choice for guests & friendly staff stocked up the food regularly.
Upon leaving we were greeted by Hector again (the man mustn’t sleep!) who asked us about our stay & wished us well.
The only cons were that there was no wardrobe, ironing facilities or suitcase rack. I’m sure that if we needed these then they would’ve been able to provide them.
Also, we couldn’t operate the coffee machine in our room which was frustration, hence my midnight trip downstairs & the plug in the shower was broken.
Overall, minimal niggles & excellent service from Hector, along with a fantastic room! We will definitely be recommending this hotel! : )
