The hotel was designed and built (by the present owner’s grandfather, I think he said), as a hotel, in the twenties, and this history still shows in a host of ways – the proud name, the traditional, local (Moorish-type, I think) arrangement of rooms round a light well, the steep marble stairs, the obviously personally chosen pictures on the landings (this was the only time I can remember that I’ve ever enjoyed looking at paintings in a hotel), the deep, elaborate doorway … I liked it. Good, helpful people (who speak English), breakfast fine (you poke your head into the kitchen from the breakfast room and they toast you a bread roll), a computer where you can check your email when you want. Position excellent, not expensive... If I go to Jerez next year, I’ll stay at the Nuevo Hotel again.
My only possible complaint was that there was no heating (in December), but that seems to be a problem (for us northerners) all over the south of Spain (and in Morocco). People there just don’t think heating's necessary. They probably think we’re soft.
Unique Quality: full of character, in a good location
