    Slightly run down feel having first visited 15 years ago. Whilst male host friendly, female receptionist presented as disinterested and did not try to engage at any level. Sad as beautiful spot but we won't be back.

    Location and authentic buildings, swimming pool and lovely little dog.

    staying at this plave was an experience I will never forget. When driving downhill to the property I said to my fiance that I feel like a cowboy riding to a place to sleep. The wifi was great (we stayed in first floor of the main building), the room was furnished like from 19th century and that was great. Ac worked perfectly, staff were great. I really enjoyed the calm and serene athmosphere. We booked the place just for one night but I would love to come back there.

    • Leisure trip

    It was a shame there was no central heating for first two nights - but it was very hard for them to justify having that on in a very spread out place with us as the only guests. we managed using the air-conditioning which provides very effective heating. good wifi in the lounge - right by a roaring log fire - It would be great if they could extend the wifi to the bedrooms.

    family run, quiet, lovely log fire in the comfortable sitting room, home cooking and inexpensive, including drinks. room is really a little suite with a hall (third bed) and its own outside terrace and with wonderful scenery - excellent base for Ronda and many interesting mountain villages, drives and walks.

    The building, the room, was not as homely as I expected. Maybe in summertime you don´t miss that warmth so much but in winter you kind of look for that feeling of cosiness and comfort. There was no free wifi in the room.

    I liked the staff. Very polite and helpful. The location was outstanding, in the middle of nature surrounded by trees, sheep and quiteness.

    Although at first site the room looked very clean, there appeared to be mice in the room. Upon notifying the staff, initially they just swept away the droppings, but after insisting we got the last available room. The room was smaller, but we still paid the same amount (only breakfast was discounted).

    The property is beautifully located and looks very nice. It's not too far away from Ronda and has beautiful surroundings. The hotel was fully booked because of event, but staff was SUPER friendly and provided us with late breakfast as we were traveling w small kids
