Ms Lin Chandler

"Loved this town and centrally situated. A little more impersonal than the others but lovely rooms and breakfast so no complaints. "

Dr Janos Demeter
"Fine as location. However they had some leaflets offering a short visit to their garden to see hummingbirds but when we asked the staff they apparently did not know when it will be, how to book it..."
Jo and Mike Bassett
"Again modern but conveniently situated in the centre of Aguas Calientas near to the bus and train station. Also near to shops and a huge craft market. Our room was quite small, but with adequate en suite shower-room and large bed. Good restaurant."
Mr Graham Kidd
"Very noisy hotel, would not stay here again."
Paul Griffin
"Nice quality largish hotel. Only criticism was no plug in the handbasin!. Very convenient for the station and they picked up and delivered luggage from the station itself. Food was good in evening. No complaints at all."
