Nice hotel

Posted Jan 20, 2014
Location: Location was good, city around the hotel was not ideal.
Overall our experience was good here. The hotel is pretty and historical. Distance from the rock of Gibraltar was not far. Maybe a twenty five minute drive. We came to Algeciras to see the Rock of Gibraltar and take the ferry to Tangiers from Tarifa. Because of this, we picked a hotel that was centrally located between the two cities. In that regard we felt this hotel was perfect for what we needed it for. The city around the hotel can be very sketchy so just be careful.

Old-fashioned elegance.

Posted Oct 20, 2013
Pros: We liked everything, especially the nice large bedroom.
Cons: Some more signage giving directions to find it.
Location: Very handy location for going to or from Morocco, and Gibraltar is not far away.
A very pleasant 2-day stay, one of the highlights of our European adventure.

Delightful old-fashioned charm.

Posted Oct 8, 2013
Pros: Everything
Cons: More detailed and explicit sign-posting from the station would be a help.
Location: Go to Gibraltar.
This historic hotel, set in a park-like setting, with very good attentive staff, gave us a very enjoyable short stay. It is within comfortable walking distance from both the Railway Station and the ferry Terminal.

Beautiful hotel, average experience

Posted Aug 2, 2013
Pros: Poolside room was amazing, close to transport links, nice staff
Cons: Air con wasn't that powerful, restaurant had bad selections, no wifi as advertised
Location: Too far from the beach but very close to transport for Gibraltar/Tarifa [for Tangier ferry]
Positives - Staff were really nice and helpful Hotel was beautiful looking Only 10 minutes from bus station to get to Gibraltar/Tarifa Great cocktails! Negatives- Wifi only works in the lobby You are really far from a beach Restaurant was over priced for small portions and if you don't eat meat or fish there isn't anything there for you. Functions can go on until 5.30am with no notice Indoor pool was closed for entire holiday

Oasis on the edge of a busy city.

Posted Jul 19, 2013
Pros: Beautiful property.
Cons: Loud live band on Friday nights
Location: Nice property on the edge of the city
Nice hotel in a beautiful garden like surrounding. Arrived on a Friday when they had a band playing loud dance music. Requested a change of rooms which they did at the other end where we did not hear any of this music. Comfortable room but no breakfast.

Characterful & beautiful hotel

Posted Jun 10, 2013
Pros: Old-fashioned, great food
Cons: Pricey beer
Location: Hotel area pretty, town itself a dive
Situated near the port, initial impressions make you think it's going to be a bit of a hove, however it was anything but! The grounds are stunning, well kept and scenic, and the hotel itself is like stepping back in time which is a huge compliment. Friendly English-speaking staff were very helpful, and the interior of the hotel was beautiful: Very olde-worlde, but elegant with it. Room was a great size, bathroom too. Buffet was superb, both dinner and breakfast full of pretty much anything and everything. Very varied, and all cooked perfectly. Wifi was good in the room, not so hot elsewhere. Parking is a bit tight and limited close to the entrance, but plenty of room slightly further round.

Nice hotel but terrible food.

Posted May 17, 2013
Pros: The old style and history of that hotel.
Cons: Improved chef and supervision. Better quality control.
The old style of the hotel charm me right away. The staff in general was okay as well. The mattress quality was horrible. I understand that you want to keep an old cliche to your hotel but the A better and new quality of mattress wouldn't hurt. Don't plan to eat over there. The food was way to expensive and the quality was horrible.. The tuna wasn't tasting fresh at all..

The hotel was marvellous but Algerciras is not an interesting place at all.

Traditional Spanish Hotel that's quiet + peaceful

Posted Mar 28, 2013
Stayed here on a room only package for 4 nights with my boyfriend, lovely hotel with Magnificat grand entrance rooms, lovely outside area to relax in with some amazing orange trees! Very traditional Spanish feel which we wanted and why we choose this hotel in the first place. The staff were excellent especially the bar staff who chatted to us and recommended places to go and visit. The hotel was extremely peaceful and quiet and very relaxing. The free Wi-Fi was excellent and worked perfectly through our stay in our room. This is the first hotel in Spain that I have stayed in where my computer has worked properly. Our fridge in our room was broken but when we told staff of the problem it was fixed immediately. We used the hotel as a base as we were travelling around during the daytime and eating out a lot, however we did enjoy cheese and pork baguettes in the bar area on a couple of occasions. The only fault we could find with the hotel was our room as we found it a little dated, old fashioned and basic shower, very basic soap, shampoo etc, no little extras, however it was clean. The hotel was within a 10 minute walk to the bus station where coaches left frequently, we used these on a daily basis to go to Gibraltar, Tarifa and Cadiz, the coaches were also very cheap. We found Algeciras a bit run down and found it difficult to find any nice restaurants to eat out at however we did find helpful locals who recommend some great supermarkets to get local food and treats from.
