The staff are so wonderful! They really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We loved the breakfast, the free e-bikes and location (the town is quiet but there are great day trips to nearby beaches and towns). The rooms are spacious and the aircon is lovely!

Amazing hotel. Really 4 stars hotel
It was amazing. A real 4 star. I will love to have free access to the breach and will prefer that AC work even without the hotel card. It was really warm.

An excellent hotel which we will return to! The staff were incredibly helpful and kind, the breakfast was basic but tasty, and for us, the location was spot on. We were able to use the electric bikes for free to ride to a secluded rustic bay 5 mins away which I would thoroughly recommend, we could also drive to several nearby towns all within 15-20 minutes such as Otranto, and also benefit from the sea and restaurants in Santa Cesarea Terme. We looked at other hotels whilst we were there to check out for future, and none of the others came anywhere close to the Est Hotel. The hot tub was a lovely touch and is open right up until the night time, and I’d recommend a room with a terrace/balcony to enjoy the views in your own private space. The restaurant was really lovely and food quality very good but as a vegetarian I found just a few options as they eat a lot of fish/meat specialties locally - however, if I had needed them to i’m sure the staff would have made something for me as they really are very helpful. On the day of our departure we left before breakfast started and they very kindly set us up a little table upstairs with fresh fruit and croissants, and made us some cappuccinos before we left for the airport! They are happy to provide local recommendations for things to do if you just ask reception, they genuinely want you to have a nice time whilst you are staying with them! Rooms were very clean and the very powerful shower was lovely. Parking is free too!
