At the low cost I was, I must admit, rather dubious about what I would find. However, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The unit was large, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The furnishings are a little dated but the other good features more than compensate for this.
The motelier realised that we were a little stressed on arrival (9 hours to drive from Christchurch due to car problems) and made us feel very welcome, even turning on the heating as soon as he showed us the room. I would definitely stay at Alcala in the future if the need arises and have already recommended it to others.
