We had a brilliant time at The Mansion House. It's a lovely old building just 5 minutes walk from the Bay area and nightlife. The service is fantastic. The wonderful Carmen was always giving us tips on things to do. Her smiley face everyday was such a joy. Something different every day. We don't like to stay in faceless chain hotels when we go away, and this is the total opposite. It felt like we were staying with friends! The housekeeping was great. The lovely swimming pool just perfect. The owner popped by one day, and he was very friendly and nice. As it is an old building, it's only to be expected that there was the occasional squeaky floorboard, and not too many electric sockets in the room, but that was the only downside. The room was freshly decorated, with a modern bathroom. I highly recommend this really individual place. I was nearly in tears saying goodbye.
