excellent evening meal
The hotel staff was very friendly and gave a hearty welcome. They had a lot of information about the surroundings and possible hiking routes. The rooms were not sound-proof.
exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, amazing food, beatiful facility
Reception very friendly. Facilities outstanding. Dinner very good with inspiring personal attention by the waiter. None
We found it a very good location in the country but the sign posting travelling from the Granada side was poor . It was very comfortable and the staff were helpful. We would stay there again. The breakfasts were not that good. Coffee was cold and the croissants were stale.
It was a wonderful hotel, beautiful and classy. It was my birthday and my son called long didtance from Canada and the manager brought her cell phone into the dining room to find me. Then to top it off,,,she brought in two huge pieces of cake (that was to die4 for , as was the meal) with candles on it and happy birthday written across the plate. Boy...it doesn't get much more special than that. Very thoughtful. We had a wonderful time It was a little difficult to find....out in the middle of no where...but well worth the effort...great place to stay
This hotel was in a very beautiful relaxing area, ideal to chill out for a few days. The 2 hour drive to and from Malaga was an experience in itself with breathtaking scenery. Maybe tea & coffee facilities in the room would have just made it perfect.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent food. Good facilities.
Nicely furnished, spacious room and bathroom. We arrived on a Sunday when a wedding reception was taking place. The staff were hard pressed and service to the other guests suffered. Also the swimming pool was not available during this time. This hotel appears to specialise in weddings - it's perhaps something to bear in mind. The air conditioning in our room was effective but very noisy.
Personal service No
Lovely setting, friendly staff and good food. It was a very relaxed and comfortable stay with wonderful views of the olive groves and the lake.
The hotel is nicely decorated and has a friendly atmosphere. Rooms are spacious and very clean. The hotel lies very quiet, but can be very noisy on the inside. Walking and talking sounds throughout the whole hallway. During our stay there was a large group of people, who were busy talking in the central hall all night long. But this was an incident.
Mainly it's lakeside location with a fantastic across the lake and of the hill top village of Iznahar. The room size was more than adequate which in our case included a view down over the pool and patio area. The bathroom was well designed with additional room for storage. Car park and wi'fi included was a bonus The swimming pool was in a bad state. It had obviously not been cleaned and was therefore not safe to swim in. In October there are those that want to swim and my wife was one so that was disappointing. Also by comparison with other 2/3 star hotels we stayed in during the previous five days the breakfast was not good. At the price though it would be churlish to complain. No fresh fruit, cakes or choice of bread rolls and juices. One of your reviewers remarked on noise from other guests permeating through the centre of the hotel into the rooms - true. There was group of cyclists enjoying themselves until late
Welcoming. Very relaxed . Its a beautiful location which would be even better when the weather is warmer. Enjoyed an excellent bottle of wine with dinner. The room was very comfortable.
Lack of atmosphere due not enough guests due the time of year but very nice staff and very Spanish which we liked
The dining room was nice and comfortable. We enjoyed the dinner and breakfast there. There are nice patio. The noise outside the room vibrated at night bothered me.
The staff were very good. The breakfast was average. The evening meal was excellent and very good value
The hotel was comfortable and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The staff were very pleasant and courteous and were very accommodating regarding guest requests.
The spectacular situation. Friendly staff.An excellent dinner Not able to get a snack when the dining room was not open. Needs a safety mat in the bath to prevent slippin
We thought that this was an excellent hotel and couldn`t ask for a better setting,also the staff were all very friendly,we only stayed for one night ,but would certainly come back and recommend it to others.
Fantastic boutique hotel right in the old quarter of town. Could not be better. The Roman Baths and massage were great and a pleasant end to a day seeing the sights in a wonderful part of Spain. Could not fault anything
Everything was absolutely excellent! From the amazing atmosphere of the Casa, to the staff, the exquisite taste in decoration, the breakfast, the Arab baths, the welcoming spirit! The location is also perfect in the most beautiful neighborhoods of Priego and a short car-ride away from Cordoba and Granada and many beautiful white villages around. We loved the place, we will recommend it to all our friends!
Well located in the old quarter of this fascinating town. Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and well appointed room and bathroom/w.c. Reserved parking space available outside front of hotel. Very poor self-service breakfast, considering the room price. Better driving directions would assist.
The Arab baths were very relaxing, the rooms clean and atmosphere relaxed. Great place to unwind. The staff were constantly on the telephone.
The hotel staff were excellent, one of the lady receptionists actually walking to fetch us when we got lost in the old town when we arrived in Priego. The room was spacious and well decorated with good air con (which we needed!), comfortable beds, and a large bathroom with brilliant shower. It was very quiet at night time so we slept well. We thought the breakfast was quite poor for the price of the room- only a roll each and a yoghurt and there was some ham and olive oil. The first morning there were croissants but not the second. There was a bowl of fresh fruit but it was overripe. There was only a drinks machine for coffee etc. I asked for hot water and was told to use tap water and heat it up in the microwave.
Comfortable location as a hub for touring Andalusia and the arab baths No
The hotel is exceptionally clean, the staff are very helpful and friendly, it is very quiet and situated in the cetre of the old town of Priego de Cordoba. It is in an ideal situation to explore the beautiful countryside and old villages that are close to the town. Furthermore, Cordoba with it's famous mosque is only an hours drive away. Highly recommended.
Lovely room and views,relaxing quiet place to stay. As expected a bit quiet in November -handful of people in restaurants.
Great hotel; excellent service. Highly recommended.
Nice setting, good appointed rooms Overpriced and overhyped for what it is
The situation , deep in country, suited us. The staff were very friendly and approachable and helpful. The food was at all times excellent
exceptionell location,good food,great staff and unique rooms + child friendly restaurant and breakfast facilities did not match the style of the hotel and appeared cheap and low in atmosphere compared to rest of the place
Fantastic location, lovely staff, really relaxing.
Loved the feeling of isolation - great for those wanting some time out. Food was superb - can't say enough good things about the dinner and breakfast (albeit limited) was tasty. Unfortunately was cold and couldn't use the outside pool but would be great in summer. Nothing for which it was designed.
The signs to get there/directions leave a bit to be desired. Check in was excellent - it set the tone for our stay. Junior suite-excellent. Staff could not do more for you - even tried out thier english!! Food (captive audience) was on the whole excellent, only one course on the second evening was a tad indifferent. I was in the catering trade and know what to look for. As a training hotel I would not fault it. Don't be put off by the 'track' leading to the hotel - it is a doddle. For the superstitious amongst us there was rather too much green for my taste and 'comfort.'
Location and very expensive SPA
All the staff went beyond their call of duty to make sure our stay was perfect. The shower cubicle in the first room we were given was rediculously small, so we were moved to a room with a bath and shower.
A part of The hotel is runned by gastronomy-students, this means the restaurant and the bar/cafeteria. The reception personell is very friendly and they speak also a bit english.The view over the landscape is beautiful and its very quiet because you have to drive the last maybe 6 km on tarmac/dust road to the middle of nowhere.We liked it because we knew this before.The restaurant food is of a good quality bit expensive but its the only way to eat there.The next village is maybe 10 km away.The junior suite we had was big and good equiped.Overall we enjoyed our stay in this quiet hotel very much and the price on booking.com is a good one !! The hotel guest has to pay for the Spa and this is very expensive, every item you have to pay separate and some are only open on weekends.The outside pool is big but not cosy to lay around.The breakfast is typical spanish just a piece of bread and some paté and marmelade/coffee/juice
A very friendly comfortable hotel with great decor.
Pleasant staff, clean, comfortable room, peaceful, good value for money, nice touch is access to a private patio outside the french windows of the room - would be great in summer. Unlike most Spanish town hotels, it's easy to find free on-street parking nearby. The location, opposite the bus station, is not picturesque, although this is a very pretty town in general. There's no restaurant, although there are plenty of bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk, so that wouldn't bother me personally.
The receptionist was surly and unhelpful.
clean expansive, no charm at all
very nice and friendly staff, nice modern rooms, no breakfast, yet plenty of eateries around the hotel, underground garage available at 5 EUR/night, reasonably central location, still easy to get out of town in less than ten minutes; good and good value for money hotel in the subbeticas area; enjoyed our stay there very much people who can't speak spanish may find the communication with the staff a bit difficult, none of them spoke any foreign language;
Its situation - one of the few hotel actually in the town. Parking can be arranged close by. The staff were charming and helpful. The weather was awful so it would have been nice to have coffe/tea making facilities in the room as the hotel offers room only.
Very good all round hotel. Choice of menu was limited.
Nice view from the room and pool-area. Riofrio is a fine little village with good and cheap fish. The motorway. It's close by but it's really not a problem.
Location- brilliant views to mountains, peaceful surroundings but well placed for visiting Granada & Cordoba.Staff were excellent- very friendly & helpful. We stayed half board & the menu del dia was very good. Access via Rio Frio was not too easy better to take the road from Loja.
This was an overnight stop en route to the coast. The swimming pool area is well laid out with a stunning panoramic view over the mountains. The food in the restaurant at dinner was excellent and the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The hotel is well signposted from the autovia and is only five minutes from the main road. The rooms are comfy, clean and well appointed. The buffet breakfast was adequate although a little lacking in choice.
Fabulous hotel with friendly staff.
Welcoming General Reception Area. Excellent swimming pool. Good food and restaurant not easy to find for newcomers to the area
the setting was beautiful and the room decorated tastefully. Breakfast was ample and varied the trout for dinner was dry, tasteless and small portioned. The dining area with drapes outside ws shabby and gave a bad impression
We Loved our seafood paella for dinner . The service was also lovely.
Delightful hotel, pleasant staff, beautiful location and excellent food.
The hotel is set in beautiful surroundings with tremendous views and also a fantastic swimming pool. The air conditioning did not appear to be working properly.
Pretty surroundings. Good breakfast. Nice staff. Free internet.
great hotel,clean & comfortable
The hotel is in a beautiful location and easy to find. We used t as a transit stay en route from North to South Spain..
quiet surroundings need renovation
Large clean room, restaurant has a good menu at very reasonable prices. Hotel staff helpful and friendly but only speak a limited amount of English. Hotel is located on a fairly busy road and can be noisy. The town of Rute has little to recommend it and the area around the hotel is undergoing development. The room had very poor lighting, apart from two bedside table lights the lighting in the large room was a small wall light with two small lamp bulbs. On four out of seven nights' stay there was no hot water and the bath plug system did not work. Lighting in the bathroom was flashy but not functional. The television only had Spanish channels.
Facilities - ok, helpful staff Did not know where anything was at hotel -no in room info
Garden and pool are lovely. Little playground was enjoyed by our four-year old. Desk staff was friendly and helpful. Easy walk into town. Dinner in the dining room was pretty bad, but the kitchen seemed to be trying its best.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine. no hair dryer and no coffee/tea available in the room.
Location on the edge of the village Probably the wrong time of year to visit the region as most of the facilities were not in use
It was convenient for our trip The restuarant was not open only the self service cafeteria was available
Not a lot, on arriving at the hotel my first impression was that it looked very run down On arriving at the hotel my first impression was that it looked very run down and on entering our room it proved to be correct.
Please write at least 15 words The room was cold. The internet was not Free as advertised.
When we came into the room,it smeled badly.We had to let the outside air in the room for a while.
The easy acess to the hotel both ways from the main road. We were kept awake all the night by the cleaning staff who kept knocking on doors, our door was even opened and left open. The times of the self service food hall was very poor.
Spacious room for price Noise of Motorway traffic as our room was facing the road as opposed to one of the rooms facing the view of the valley.
The food in the restaurant was fantastic and the wine list was extensive including Italian wines. The breakfast was poor and when we came down there was little if nothing left.
Although described as 'rural' the hotel was easy to find. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean, as was the en suite shower room. We ate dinner at the hotel and found the food excellent. All staff were very pleasant and attentive.
Very nice hotel and excellent restaurant. If possible: try the dorade in orangesauce, it's lovely. Staf was very friendly and helpful.
Small familyhotel with a very friendly staff, good restaurant and nice rooms considering the price. Worthwhile returning!
Food much better than in other places we visited
Our third visit. Rooms and facilities excellent,great service and fantastic food in the restaurant. A great place to relax by the pool or as a base to explore the area.
Excellent customer service from this friendly family run hotel. You get the feeling that nothing is too much to ask here. Very unintimidating, we felt so at home here. Very peaceful, view from the garden is beautiful. We left feeling rested and desperate for another night in this comfortable hotel. Set amongst rolling hills and olive groves and just a 40min straight drive from Malaga. The food is great too! We usually only use hotels for a place to sleep but we enjoyed it so much here that we liked just hanging out in the lounge, restaurant and by the pool. No
The friendly welcome, the cleanliness and the most important for me was the good food, service and breakfast. The staff is very friendly and ther are few places like that. Yes, I wished I had chosen a longer stay.
Friendly with family touches. Excellent value would recommend and certainly return
Lack of Internet wireless and satellite tv
We were able to park immediately outside and were assured that there were security patrols overnight.
Easy to park outside. Cafeteria for coffee etc in morning. Bit difficult to find, not well signposted.
Luxuryies Very loud hotel due to long coridor, thin walls. Coming and going of hotel guest over the whole night.
Room turned to the back of the hotel was surprisingly quiet, despite location at frequented high-way
Great restaurant. Staff and service excellent. Good location 2 mins from the A92. Great Value for money. What more do you need?
Staff friendly and helpful, food was good and good value
It was very nice location.The breakfast & staff was very nice.And was very easy to find.
We have stayed at this hotel about four times and think it is a charming place with lovely views. The staff are very professional and friendly. i highly reccomend it Nothing at all to be critical of
Easily accessible from both Malaga and Granada airports and centrally located to explore the area. Friendly staff, rooms adequate and very clean apart from beds exceptionally hard! Extensive menu with good food. Popular with the locals if you are looking for real Spain! Smoking in the bar and hard mattresses.
The private terrace and the hydro massage tub The terrace overlooked the car park and the room was smaller than the terrace!
idilic country location decoror and comfort excellent sunday cena on the outside patio very helpfull staff particualy when it started to rain, The staff had will do any job attitude to thier work,well done. brekfast could be better !
Nice swimming pool very good for children Very good bathroom well equiped
convenient for the motorway yet in a quiet rural location - well worth the extra cost for a terrace and jacuzzi type bath! the access gate to the swimming pool was locked during our stay at the hotel but there again the weather was too good for swimming/sunbathing
The hotel has got a fanstic mountain view when you open the balcony door. With the deals from the website, it is a great bargin to stay. The facility is very basic but in good condition.
Very helpful staff, excellent value for money and prime location No tea/coffee making facilities in room
Easy to find without going out of your way when travelling to the South of Spain. Would recommend for travellers.
We've got the room with a view to the city and mountains behind it. Basic room but very cosy. The city can be cleaner, but thats the way Spanish live. The hotel located in very quiet place. It is very good place to travel around if you have a car. Nothing special
Great Location, cheap. Very small beds. Basic facilities
value for money excellent, good location clean no
The hotel is very good value for money. We have paid far more for hotels and got far less in cleanliness and friendliness. We would definitely recommend it to others
Very clean accommodation, friendly staff easy parking No dislikes but lightbulbs missing/broken in shaving and bedside reading lights
We arrived just after midnight and owner wasn´t aware I had a booking made through booking.com! However he let us stay for 30€ double room with baby, very cheap price cos it is off-season. It is basic but comfortable and clean and lovely views over city. Typical small town or country hotel mentality but we were treated fairly and it was ok, nothing out of this world but very handy if u have a car cos u can park for free outside the door and the views alone make it a bit special. The food and sweets they sell in their shop are a bit expensive but ok if u need a quick snack. Overall, i´d stay here again but I wouldn´t pay a big rater to stay there. It was ok, nothing special but satisfactory overall and very practical.
The rooms are simple with plenty of space. Nice view to the town. Hotel staff doesn't speak a word other than spanish. The self-service breakfast was closed even at 09.30 in the morning (tuesday), so to order the breakfast we had to tell them exactly what we wanted, but as we don't speak spanish very well, it was very hard to get what we wanted.
