Default Google Street View

I was just have a play about the streets of Puerto Pollensa in google street view and noticed what I though was a bit of an oddity:
In Google maps if you zoom to street view at roundabout at the front (Carrer Joan XXIII / Passeig Saralegui) it shows a double arrow pointing roughly towards hotel Daina-
if you click on the arrow it takes you to outsie the Riusech office and then by clicking the arrows you can go into the office and look around ..... that's not very interesting and largely pointless ...but it may become useful as they add the feature to more locations:
so far all I've been able to find are the 2 Riusech offices, Hotel Mar Calma and Celler La Parra.

I think they're 'SEE INSIDE' pictures from Google+

Here is the Google Maps link for the Celler La Parra -
puerto pollensa - Google Maps
The 'chevron' or double arrow becomes a single arrow which when followed brings you inside.

And their Google+ page -

The 'SEE INSIDE' on the right hand side has the same pictures

A UK link to Google business photos:

Business Photos ? Google Maps

Only approved photographers can take the photos and there are no advertised fixed prices.

A quick look at cellar la Parra and not sure the photos are a good representation of the restaurant.
https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&l...05665,3.078698

They are very detailed and a bit over exposed but make the building look too bright in my opinion.
I remember it as a cosy place rather than really bright.



Must have been winter as the two people have coats on

On a similar note, I have used Google Earth before and have been able to get 360 degree views from Inside and out of the Miramar.

Still nothing like being there in person!!!
