    I had a room on the second "attic"floor built into the roof space. (they are cheaper). I am 6. 3" and was not comfortable. In particular the shower was a misery. My 5. 6" wife found the room "tight" but was reasonably comfortable. The setting and the restaurant are excellent.

    staff were very helpful in supplying information on the area, where to eat Sunday when their restaurant was closed. Nice pool area with sunbeds and towels.

    Bigger bedroom, slightly bigger and more modern bathroom.

    Rooms were rather small. Restaurant closed on Monday night, which was a shame as there wasn´t much on offer in the town.

    We would loved to have eaten in the restaurant and were told it was fully booked, but I felt they didn't really want children eating there. Mix up on our rooms on arrival however the staff sorted it quite quickly

    Beautiful hotel, lovely staff

    Booked as a special treat for my wife's birthday, chosen for its excellent restaurant reviews and swimming pool. However, despite saying restaurant closed only on Mondays, we were told on our arrival (a Tuesday), that the restaurant was now closed Mon, Tues, and Weds. ALSO, the pool was also closed, despite the fact that the temperature was 34 degrees. A very disappointing experience.

    Lovely setting, but spoils by lack of facilities.

    If you use the English language version of the menu make sure you know what "beef tail" is before you order. It has nothing to do with the traditional English ox-tail recipe because it is in fact a chunk of veal. We thought the breakfast was greatly overpriced at 16 euros per head for 3 buns and a cuppa.

    Beautiful centuries-old building in quiet rural location close to an interesting village
