Convenient, clean and very friendly. Oa Monday night got it very difficult to find a good restaurant any way near. Breakfast good and great value with chatty staff. We were only charged for what we had less than 5€

We used this hotel as a stopover before a 06:00 flight to Edinburgh. The reception was efficient and friendly, and organised an early morning wake up call and the taxi for us. The room was absolutely fine - clean and everything worked. Couldn't get any UK channel on the TV though, but didn't really mind. Can't comment on food etc.,...

Stayed here with friends as part of a layover and it was cracking! Previously we stayed in the hostel next to it (mesegeur?) but this was much better. Breakfast was delicious and they pretty much make you anything you want. Rooms are really basic but there's a wee bar round the corner where you can get beer and tapas for...

It's a great budget place if you're catching an early flight. I checked in at night (22:30) and checked out early in the morning (5:30). I always travel with earplugs so I didn't have problems with noise or anything else. Single room is a bit small but has all it needs. There's a pizza takeaway very close to it. Overall,...

Just returned from a 4 night stay and can highly recommend this hotel. Received a lovely welcome on arrival and found room to be clean, comfortable and quiet. Also very convenient for bus to Alicante. The family of staff are very friendly and helpful, and served us breakfast with a smile each day. The English spoken was very good.

I was very pleasantly surprised to receive such a warm and accommodating welcome plus to find a clean establishment. I really enjoyed my stay and Have already reserved a room for my return journey. I was offered secure parking but my vehicle was too tall. I don't think secure parking is really necessary in the hotel's location.
