A small, family-run hotel the Coma has a swimming pool, tennis courts, childrens' play area, mini-golf and is comfortable and spacious. As Andorra has yet to invoke a smoking ban in hotels you do come across guests puffing away but, during our 7 nights, they were in the minority and, thankfully, not in the restaurant. All the rooms face the mountains but the seemingly prevalent tower cranes can distract from the views. The rooms themselves have plentiful storage, a decent bathroom (shower, bath, bidet and WC) but the mirror above the sink was so far away it made shaving a bit problematic (well it did for me but then I'm short-sighted). The flat-screen TV had a wide range of channels (mostly French or Spanish and only two English language ones, but that didn't matter really). The bed was a bit hard and came complete with hideous foam pillows but it was huge and could have slept three quite comfortably. That said the undersheet was a touch on the small side and after a night's tossing and turning you awoke to find yourselves invariably resting on the mattress. The room had small balcony with table and two chairs which was nice to use for a drink and a relax. The pool was a bit on the small side and had an accumulation of grit on the bottom in places that they could have removed more often than they did. It was accessed past a small derelict piece of land that was unbecoming the hotel but such was the haste to get there after a day's walking we didn't pay it much notice. Turning to the food it must be said that Andorran cuisine is not one of the world's best. Although a decent selection at dinner it was, at best, some rustic. That said it was substantial and tasty but could have done with being hotter: our dinners were warm at best and tepid at worst. As there is virtually no agriculture in Andorra fresh vegetables were a rarity and, when you did get vegetables, there usually weren't that many of them. The beans in my Catalan sausage and beans were clearly from a tin and my wife's starter of peas equally so. But the food was wholesome and filling even if it did lack style and finesse. The saving grace was the desserts which were all made (we thought) at the hotel, A decent and plentiful selection which compensated for the ever-so-slightly deficient mains. Breakfast was pretty similar: good selection and plenty of it. The hotel offered us a packed lunch one day. Having sampled it we declined their offers thereafter. The staff were welcoming and friendly (apart from a somewhat surly barman) and very helpful and couldn't have been more helpful. The hotel seems to do a thriving trade in wedding receptions which does mean that at weekends it can get a bit noisy, but they seem to finish about 11-ish and if you've worn yourself out walking there's no problem. So, in summary, a nice hotel with great staff and reasonable facilities. Food not as good as that in French hotels but better than in the other hotel we stayed at in Andorra (see my comments on the Princes Parc at Arinsal).
