    The word Rural.

    The word Rural...this hotel is not rural it is located between the industrial estate and the motorway. Also on flight path of airport so every 10-15 mins planes flew over. Also nearby barking dogs so not a good sleep.

    The croissants were actually extra flakey. The place was great, an excellent, restful stop on our El Camino trek. There is a charming grey cat there as well.

    It was terribly hot as the city was caught up in the mist and so the summer humidity won out. Thankfully we had our own fan.

    We went to this hotel with a purpose - to spend two days in Bilbao - whereupon we needed to park a full car and trailer safely. We did exactly that.

    The surrounding town leaves a lot to be desirrd. It is the industrial suburbs of Bilbao.

    The grounds and the house itself are gorgeous. The couple who runs it are fabulous, very accommodating and friendly.

    The hosts are very nice. Check-in and check-out for this hotel was perfect. The location is good. All facilities are clean and comfortable. Our rooms were spacious and Dinner was good, breakfast was a typical Spanish breakfast I certainly recommend this hotel for who is walking the Camino del Norte and prefers sleeping in a hotel

    A nice hotel located some walking distance from facilities but with below average restaurant partner

    The restaurant they partner with served poor food. I dislike saying that because the restaurant owner was a lovely friendly woman and the hotel owners were nice and drove us there. The Greek salad was beetroot and coleslaw the fish appeared to be deep fried from a packet. Distance of the hotel makes this the only choice and whilst we would have rated the hotel higher unfortunately the combination with the restaurant reduced our enjoyment

    Owners are helpful. Rooms are clean and safe and the hotel has a large green area to look over. It is also virtually on the Camino if walking which we were

    It is next to an industrial estate, though once at the hotel you are in a green oasis with views across to the hills. No evening meal on site. Local restaurants close for August but the nearest bar did the best ever fish and chips, Basque style.

    It had a rural charm yet was within easy reach of Bilbao by bus or train, and close to the main road (with cheap fuel nearby) . Staff were friendly and attentive and breakfast was very good.
