Nostalgic trip to Laxe
The website photos of the hotel etc are a bit misleading; the hotel is situated on a limited site close to a busy rural road with the garden, swimming pool and other leisure activities up a steep hill behind the hotel building. These facilities are accessed by steep steps. Car parking is at the front of the hotel building and limited in size and requires quick dashes across on-coming traffic to enter or exit. The hotel building itself is beautiful and the staff friendly & helpful but only available for limited periods. There is no lift and our room on the 2nd/top floor required climbing a beautiful marble staircase. Our bedroom had a lovely timbered ceiling; the bedroom furniture was lovely to look at but somewhat large for the size of room, leaving limited space for two people and luggage. The bathroom had a sloping ceiling with the toilet under a recessed skylight resulting in some banging of heads. .The shower was set into a slight recess in the floor and it proved difficult not to wet large areas of the floor when using the shower. There was a good flow of water in the shower but sometimes a wait for warm water to work its way through the pipes from the boiler(?). There was a security box set in the wardrobe but the available instructions for use were not in Spanish or English; in due course we were given the master key to the security box to override the electronic keyboard to use the safe for the period of our stay.
