    Warm welcome. Beautiful interesting interior, mountain rustic chic. Amazing mountain view from the room. Short walk to town centre and to the Castillo de Vélez-Blanco (free entrance but check opening times as closes in the afternoon, reopens at 1600hr). Hotel bar/restaurant very pleasant. Great coffee at breakfast. Honey delicious (they sell but I forgot to buy some to take home). Free street parking outside.

    The air conditioning was ineffective - probably just needs servicing.

    The hotel is very easy to find and you can park for free immediately outside (not that common in Spain). Great views of open landscape from bedrooms. It's a five minute walk into the little town centre. Lovely staff. The bar is a proper local haunt rather than just a hotel bar, serving excellent tapas and meals.

    The booking.com bit on payment - you need to sort out this confusion.

    I booked via Booking .com but ended up paying at the hotel, it wasn't clear for me why? Also why Booking.com want credit card details if your not handling the payments?

    Staff very friendly and helpful although no English spoken we were able to communicate with each other easily. This is a well looked after property with lots of character. Best breakfast we’ve ever had in Spain freshly made and served immediately so warm tostada! Problem with WiFi during our stay but not a deal breaker for us would happily stay again.

    With the right owners and investment this has the potential to be a first class hotel and restaurant

    Shower head in bathroom needed to be re-attached to wall. We understand the owner is looking to sell the premises as she can no longer manage the hotel on her own.

    Fantastic property with stunning views and welcoming owner. Comfortable bed. Owner was happy to provide tapas lunch at short notice.

    Clean hotel with wonderful views.

    • Stayed 1 night

    None of the staff spoke English but we got by with a little French and lots of gestures and smiles. Nothing much open in the village for a meal at night so check if going during the winter period.

    The room was very large as we booked a suite. The view from the room was fantastic. The hotel was very clean and very Spanish. It was so nice to stay in a hotel that was not the normal run of the mill type. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was lovely with good coffee and plenty of refills. Brilliant castle in the village and amazingly free of charge.

    We only had 2 small towels and no bath mat.

    I splashed out and booked the suite which was nice and spacious (2 large rooms plus a bathroom) and 2 balconies with a superb view. There was plenty of parking outside and the Hotel was in easy walking distance from the rest of the town. Breakfast was nice with great coffee.
