    In number it is very cold, huge cracks in windows! In a bathroom smells of dampness. Have asked to bring one more blanket, haven't brought. The breakfast for 4 euros doesn't cost that!

    Cool weather not a single single rug to put your feet on. Tv about 20 years old, nothing to watch. There’s a party room just beside the bedrooms and a party with very high music went on until 2AM, could not sleep. Very uncomfortable mattress, you could feel the springs in your backs. Old pillows.

    Location and the architecture style.

    Breakfast was very basic.

    Hotel was located right in the tourist heart of Lanjaron with a great street front bar area with terrace. The room was very comfortable, with good sized en suite and wardrobe, windows shutters and aircon. Staff were friendly and helpful. A nice hotel and a good value price.

    The receptionist spoke little English but with my sketchy Spanish we managed. I know the town is popular with Spaniards, which is part of its attraction. Lanjaron is really unique.

    I liked the mementoes of Federico Garcia Lorca in the bar/dining room Also the early 20th C decor has not changed since his family stayed there it seems - for me a bonus!

    The TV didn't work very well.

    Initially the room seemed a bit dark until I opened the curtain and let in some light. The bed was comfortable and the pool was great having been hot traveling in the car most of the day.

    We were lucky enough to be there on a day when there was a big banquet/celebration, The restaurant inside was booked by a group of up to 100 ppl including kids and the music was on until at least 1 am while noise downstairs (including shouting kids!) went on until 3 am. I am sure this is not an issue on other nights but this one was not ideal.

Its is not a buffet but we were able to oder what ever we wanted from the great local food. Eggs, jamon, bread tomato, cheese...the hotel has a restaurant and its a good value for money. We enjoyed the calm swimming pool also. Another plus, the staff are lovely:-)
