                We liked the location of the Hotel. There was a very easy check-in at reception. The room was excellent and much larger than expected. Car was excellent, free and large, and very secluded Beautiful furnishing within the hotel, well thought out as regards the comfort of customers. Grounds of hotel very well maintained, and very restful. Very nice swimming pool Excellent poolside restaurant and bar. Breakfast excellent, plenty to choose from and very varied hot and cold dishes.

                No refrigerator in room which was specified No air conditioning units which are necessary in Summer

                The location was handy for our trip through Spain.

                The staff where very sullen and matter of fact. When checking in we where just given the key to our room - that's it! We had to move room as the people next door where so loud we wouldn't have been able to sleep. All the rooms had little or no sound proofing.

              • Family with children

                Relaxed, lovely setting, close to cuenca, lovely pool, rustic building. Would stay again

                It was more expensive than our 4 star hotel in toledo and breakfast wasn't included

              • Family with children
                8.2

                We had an awesome quadruple room for our family of 4. There was a double bed on the main floor and the kids slept upstairs in a separate room with two single beds. You access the upstairs room with a narrow, winding staircase. The whole place was very old and tastefully decorated with tons of character. We ate a good supper in the restaurant there (there was even a kids menu). The breakfast buffet was great too! Cuenca is 5 K.M. down the road.

                Convineante for exploring the old city and a good stop when travelling to ferry

                No coffee and tea making facilities in room

                Hotel staff was so friendly kind and helpful. Dinner is avaialble on site, the food is fantastic as always, wins are reasonable and also great. There was outdoor swiming pool in the back, it seems good for kids. I wish to stay again in long term vacation next time.

                Quiet location well sited for an easy drive to the old town. Accommodation was basic but ok. Internet connection good in communal areas.

                Could hear other quests as walls very thin. Pool was closed for renovation but this was not stipulated on the web site when booking. Needed to run hot water for at least 3 mins before showering.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Great location so peaceful and tranquil. You cannot walk however into Cuenca unless extremely fit and it would be dangerous in the dark on the unlit twisty roads but in the car 10 minutes with spectacular views if you take the 'high road' out of the hotel.

                Although we knew pool did not open until July due to the surrounding trees which shred much pollen and other bits and altho we live in Spain but are English the temp reached 33c and without a pool it was sad it was not open. I do speak Spanish not fluently but do understand but no staff spoke English which is poor for a hotel with English being spoken worldwide did also feel 2100hrs was a biit late for the evening meal altho Spanish people eat late but felt 2000hrs would have been better

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                Interesting old building about 4 miles outside Cuenca which is a really lovely place to visit. Nice bathroom with plenty of hot water.

                Room was cold and dark although mid-May. Restaurant staff very unfriendly - we have limited Spanish but do try, staff didn't seem interested.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                The ambience and location were excellent for us as we had 2 dogs. There were beautiful walks for the dogs nearby. It was near to the city of Cuenca for sightseeing and shopping. For a relaxing holiday this hotel is ideal.

                On the Saturday night they could have done with more bar staff because they were full with 2 coaches and a 1st Communion. One man was not enough while they were trying to serve in the restaurant and bar snacks as well. Most of the staff were in the restaurant.

                8.2

                Nice location if you travel by car (on crossroad to upper and lower Cuenca). Enough parking space. Nice environment. The room was clean but rather small. Historical building. The personel is helpful and friendly. We paid extra for the breakfast, but this was worth our money (large choice and very good quality)

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                Fast check-in, big rooms, nice area.

                The walls are a bit thin, you hear your neighbours.

              • Single
                8.2

                Very good kitchen, extremely nice terrace, good location to visit and park Cuenca.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The excellent location for visiting Cuenca, and vantage points for taking pictures of the famous cliff homes.
