    Estuvimos en otra ocasión y repetimos porque nos encantó la estancia y el restaurante. Pero nos tocó una familia un poco ruidosa (sobretodo el niño en la hora de la siesta) y tuvimos que aguantar gritos y golpes sin poder descansar. Por lo demás, todo bien. Destacar la carta del restaurante en la que tú mismo puedes hacer el pedido, es rápido y fácil. En cualquier momento, añades lo que necesites en la mesa y les llega el pedido en el mismo instante

    No nos gustó mucho

    En nuestro caso fue una opción de paso para dejar Baeza y entrar en la provincia de Ciudad Real. No nos alojamos para visitar Despeñaperros. El hotel en sí es anticuado, aunque tampoco es que estuviéramos mal ni que estuviera sucio ni nada por el estilo. La habitación es como visitar a tu abuela la del pueblo. No es vintage, está anticuado, y más que anticuado diría que está viejo. La cama no fue incómoda. Tiene aire acondicionado pero no recuerdo si tiene nevera -creo que no-. El personal normal, ni bien ni mal. Cenamos en el restaurante. No es barato (tampoco caro) pero se come bien y el personal del restaurante fue más majo. El desayuno consiste en una bebida caliente, una pieza de bollería y un zumo de naranja. El camarero del desayuno no fue nada agradable ni simpático. En general no repetiría.

    El sitio y el precio están en consonancia, pero la comida de alguno de los platos de la carta fue un poco escasa.

    La estancia de una noche fue muy agradable. Merece la pena destacar la comida del restaurante así como el trato recibido por parte de los empleados.
