My husband and I decided to stop at Talca in order to take the train ride to the coast which was mentioned in our guide book. We incurred at the hotel on arrival and the girl t the front desk told us that it left at 7>3 in the morning. I asked her to check the times and if necessary make us a booking. She told us that there was no need to make a booking and that the time was 7:30 bu she would check. She never got back to us and so I decided to go on the web and check myself. I found that in December they have decided to only run the train on Saturdays and as it was a week day there was no train. By this time we had ordered a packaged breakfast which the hotel wanted us to pay for even though breakfast was included with our room. After much discussion and now we didn't need the breakfast things were sorted out. The whole experience was not good and all because the girl at the desk did not do s she had promised.
The hotel itself was very good, modern with a nice little pool on the roof which we enjoyed with a good view of the surrounding countryside.
We ate our evening meals and 1 lunch in the dining room of the hotel which was a very pleasant experience due to Andres the waiter who looked after ll our needs, gave us advice on wines and help with our Spanish. Andres is a real asset to this hotel.
