VHotelery plesant staff and Very comfortable Resturant Menu quite limited
the viez no street signs saying where it was
The setting. The views were wonderful and our room had a private terrace so we could enjoy them even more. We dined at the hotel and the food was very disappointing. I had the pasta which contained three cm squares of meat and one slice of mushroom. That is absolutely true! My friends' meals were equally tasteless. The hotel is also in need of some serious TLC but the former glory still shows through and we will stay again, but only eat there if they hire a chef!
The room was beautiful. The location was close to the center of town and the view of the mountains was peaceful. The staff was nice and the we enjoyed our stay. The bed was not that comfortable and the water was not as hot as I would have liked. I like hot showers.
We like the hotel's proximity to town and the fabulous views of the valley below Ronda, especially from the hotel balcony. Reception staff members were helpful. The food in the restaurant was good, too. Creaky wooden floors in the very long hallways. The overall sense that the hotel's "golden" days are well behind it.
gardens and view staff mediocre, some facilities in poor repair
its location in Ronda balcony rooms with spectacular views hot water very scarce
Free parking ( no reservation required) ; very important in Ronda.Good-sized room , very comfortable. Wonderful views from our balcony. May be an issue with sound-proofing between rooms though we were not really troubled.
The location and gardens. Also we were given a room with an attractive view. Spacious room, comfortable and clean. Our room suffered from the smell of damp: water had seeped in from the bathroom above?
Views and position No information as to facilities activities or local area except one brochure about the bull ring!! Amazing
Nice location and good view I didn`t have much time to have breakfasr because of the train.(Londa 08:58) I hope it starts at least from 7:30.
Nothing Over priced. We cancelled our stay after viewing the smelly room with aircondition that doesn't work because the hotel is switching it to a cooling system only in May. We had 30 degrees in the room.
Buautiful place on the bridge. The place itself must see sight. 20Euro parking fee for one night.
room, breakfast, ambient, position
Amazing location, facility, service, food. Even parking. This is the second time I have stayed here and cannot say enough about the staff- superb! Especially Jesus- who has gone above and beyond each time to ensure our stay was terrific!
Central location with numerous places to eat. Great views over the valley. 20 euros per day car parking.
Perched on the cliffside, this hotel is one of the best. The rooms were spacious, well appointed and the swimming pool overlooked the valley below. The breakfast was also fantastic.
This parador is an enchanting place. Once you get to it you just forget the outside world and could stay there forever with time standing still. The location is it's main feature and the layout brings out the best views of the countryside around Ronda. Maybe not affordable to everyone.
Location most definately!
The balcony of our room and the view were outstanding. The room was large, bright, and comfortable.
The hotel was very well located. Easy to find and easy to park. These things matters much in old historic places. Top notch! The room was spacious, and even though we did not have the superior room we had a lovely small terrasse (all rooms have terrasses) with a nice view. We were very happy in the hotel and the city of Ronda.
The triple room is big. NONE
Location was good.
Visited Grazelema and walked in the NAture Reserve No teat/coffee making facilities in the room
Central location and ease of parking
Close to views and bridge. The room was very clean and beds were comfortable Breakfast was not too good
Cute and cozy rooms, friendly staff, perfect location near the center of town! Nada :)
Overall the hotel was good, friendly staff, good location, good wifi. Parking not too far away. My only complaint was the carpeting in the bedroom. It was old and stained so you couldn't tell if it was clean or not.
Todo bien la verdad. Muy aconsejable.
clean and convenient no real dislikes - just a simple easy to use hotel
Nice little hotel Good location No parking facilities.
location + value for money + cheap parking possibility
Good value Dirty Room Carpet
The girl at reception is very pleasant, chatty and speaks good english. The hotel is beautiful with a lovely patio and great views and its great for visiting the whole town on foot as its right in the middle and everything is five minutes away. The room and bathroom are quite small but ok for a short stay.
Very good standard of the Hotel. Beautiful rooms and nice terrace with an astonishing view. Excellant restaurant with good food and a nice selection of wines. No internet computer available for guests.
Staff was super friendly and the view is simply breath taking (if you take a room with a view that is). Hotel is very central and very charming. The room smelled of sewer. The hotel seems to be aware of it but so far unable to do anything about it.
Reserved the room with view and it did not dissapoint us. Hotel was not large, but had very airly rustic feeling. The room and bathroom was large and tempreture was controlled automatically by sensor. It had adjoining restaurant with even better view and excellent dinner selection. Although it is not a part of hotel, they served the breakfast at this restaurant as well. Hotel staffs were very warm and nice. I had to print out some E-mail attachement and they let me print out from public room PC to front office printer. WIFI worked fine in our room as well.
The position of the hotel, overlooking the Ronda gorge is very spectacular. The staff were extremely nice and freindly. The meal, the setting and the service was exquisite. The room was very comfortable but we would have liked a room overlooking the gorge but we booked on a late booking and there was only one room left. Nothing
A charming hotel nestled on a cliff edge and close to the Town centre, oozing with character and definitely one of the smallest outdoor swimming pools, but at the same time with the most amazing views. Our room was compact, but ample for two and the decoration was ornate, a wonderful romantic feel to the whole place, clean and friendly with helpful smiling staff The only improvement would have been coffee making facilities in the room
The staff at this hotel are very friendly. The hotel is right on the edge of the gorge near to the bridge. The view from the restaurant as the sun sets is very special, the food is good too. It might be a good idea to check out what's happening in the town such as bull fights and festivals. There's some interesting things if you go at the right time. Parking is a nightmare, but you're in a Spanish hilltop town with a Moorish history. What do you expect!!!
The location is excellent alongside the cliff edge at Ronda. The dining room looks over the edge and towards the bridge. Book a car park as it's just up the street and the staff help you in and out with the car, but it only has 4 spaces so book early!
Personal approach and friendliness of staff made the whole family relax and enjoy the stay. In addition staff knew the area well and gave good advice for what to see and how to travel.
The view from our room was breathtaking. Parking is a little way away but that is true of most city hotels. A wonderful experience and helpful staff.
Very convenient for the town Hotel a little shabby. Breakfat poor. Room very small
the hotel was very welcoming and friendly. However it was about 10/15 minutes from the main attractions and this was a problem for me as I have a disability. Excellent staff clean and friendly however the hotel was difficult to find as it was down a courtyard. It is in an excellent position for those wishing to be near the bus or train station
location, just 50 meters from bus station and 500 meters from train station
Situation in the town Breakfast cereal served in a coffee cup!!!!!!
The location of the hotel was quite nice, close to the station and the town centre. The breakfast staff was nice. Staff at checkin were not rude, but not friendly either. My room had one window facing the staircase, so there was no natural light, and I could not have the curtains or window open. It was quite noisy at night as everyone walked up and down just past my window. The room smelled terribly strongly of old cigarette smoke, and despite it being "strictly not smoking" there was an ashtray next to the bed, which I guess explains the smell. The bed wasn't very comfortable - the wooden headboards are not attached to the cheap metal bases at all. I suppose for the price I paid I can't really complain, plus it was clean and conveniently located, but it didn't make for a pleasant stay at all.
The location and the price of the Hotel were great. The staff was helpful and friendly. There some ants in our room.
A good location and very pleasant staff.
Price and location Wifi was barely usable in our room. A bad smell in the hallway and a couple of bugs.
The hotel is well situated in Ronda. It has underground parking facilities, which is very good, although we were lucky and able to park just outside in the street. The rooms are small & simple, but clean & good value for money.
For the money, good value. Room was clean and of a good size, and included breakfast was good and served promptly. Free internet for those who don't have their own computer would be a nice add-on.
Location close to Puente Nuevo and arena, stuff very helpful, a lot of bars and restorans in the area.
Great location, very convenient parking
Very central location, right in the town centre and close to all tourist attractions. Parking is difficult in Ronda and the hotel's own underground car park is a big advantage. Staff were extremely efficient and friendly. The buffet breakfast was of a very good standard for the type of hotel.
Hotel was centrally located and was clean, confortable and of very good standard. I left my shoes in the rooom and they promptly couriered themmto me which was greatly appreciated. WiFi in rooms which is very convenient. We used the cafe for breakfast which was "good' but suggest eating our for dinner.
A really nice hotel with good facilities and parking. The shopping and tourist spots are all around this hotel and as long as you remembr that the shops use the antiquated system closing 2 to 5pm you will have a good time although 1 night will be enough to see everything local. We had a pleasent stay and then moved to the coast for entertainment because there is not much of that here in Ronda.
We chose suite which had sitting area as well. No evidence we could be served coffee later in the evening
Very central. Old fashioned hotel but perfect for one night. Friendly staff.
Even though this was a four star hotel the staff could not be more welcoming so far as the storage of our (rather dirty) bicycles were concerned. They were locked away in a special room - that is what I call hospitality, unlike some hotels I could mention.
Location. Friendly english speaking staff.
The hotel is in a great location, in the center of Ronda, and the entire staff and owner are very friendly.
Value for money. Location so long as we insisted upon rooms with view. Problem of parking arrangements; having to enter via paid parking area where personnel insisted we pay even though hotel has arrangements.Hotel staff challenged the parking staff but we had already had to pay!this has gone on apparently for 6 years but still isn't resolved!
Location of the hotel is good. Rooms are modern, but there is not nearly enough light in the rooms. In the evening you seem to be wandering around in a sort of semi-darkness. Staff at reception spoke hardly any English. Breakfast very basic. Better to have breakfast somewhere else.
The location was outstanding and the room offered us a view of Ronda. The staff were helpful at all times and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
easy access to sites, very friendly staff
Not a 4 Star by any means but more like a 2/2.5.Therefore very expensive and somewhat disappointing. Room was tired - Breakfast was very limited and the back of the building with no natural light.
Great location, very professional staff, very comfortable room, original design! Nothing to complain about!
Very friendly staff, also the hotel is in the centre of toen Nothing
Great location right by the bridge over the gorge and next to the bullring. Staff was very friendly even walking us out to the car with umbrellas when we were leaving because it was raining.
View and close to everything
Hotel décor, design and ambience. Breakfast was incredibly poor and whilst staff were friendly, they seemed stretched as there wasn't enough working.
very little , this is not a four star hotel. It offers none of the facilities accociatedx with this categorty of hotel, the price was fair enough for what it was but it self was a major disappointment
Food and fantastic views/history.
Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent and useful literature on what do do in and around ronda, and how best to do it, great breakfast, fantastic dining recommendations. Really beautiful hotel, immaculately kept, peaceful, relaxing, homely, and wonderful spacious room. We will be back. Many thanks to all the staff. I cannot think of any faults at all.
This is a family run hotel, and their friendly and helpful approach towards us as guests made our stay a most enjoyable one. Excellent position and service.
The room, the ambience, the courtyard, the location, No. The only slight disappointment was the breakfast.
Amazing. Perfect location, gorgeous room and incredibly nice and helpful staff. Five stars.
The room was large and absolutely delightful. I loved the decoration of the hotel, which was equal to its description on the web site. The hotel staff was very helpful, even asking us where we were going next and giving us directions to Cordoba and a map of that city.
We travelled through Spain for three weeks and this was the best hotel we stayed in .. and many others were lovely hotels. The facilites and the service were excellent. We particularly appreciated the plan of the walking tour we were given when we arrived. What a great idea. We would happily recommend this hotel to our friends.
We were given the bridal suite as it was our honeymoon at no extra charge - something we thought was wonderfull - Thank You The staff are muy simpatico y amable
The quaintness (is that a word?) really unique hotel The heating was only on for part of the day.. without exception this is the first hotel I've stayed at that was rather cold - the rads were only on from 6-10 and in the mornings, really needed them to be on all the time as it was frrrreeeeezing in Ronda!!
Unlike most hotels the san gabriel has enormous charm, courtesy of its previous role as a private home, dating from the C17. The interior decor is quite remarkable. As well, the knowledge and courtesy of management was far above what one normally encounters in hotels.
Quietness. Mountain lovation, beautiful horses. Website gives the impression you can ride from here. When asked at reception we were told the riding is not done from the hotel. Riding was 3 hours and cost £45. We emailed the hotel prior to going to find out prices and when we could ride and they failed to provide this information.
The staff was very friendly, cosy apartment, large swimmingpool and all the animals of this very beaitful location. Total relax in the countryside we had nothing to complain, the positive guest reviews reflect our experience(we are family with 1 child of 8 years)
Beautiful country location. Very clean interesting well kept facility. Friendly staff
The location just 4 km from Ronda was perfect for either relaxing away from crowds or as a base for exploring the region. The small number and style of rooms made you feel as though you were in your own cottage - again perfect. Being on an active ranch, it was a pity you could not hire any horses there but had to travel into Ronda to do that.
Relacting, very spahish and well kept. A fantastic place.
The nice surroundings, beautifull room, nice swimming pool no refrigirator in the room only very expensive food at the restaurant.
Swimming-pool, free internet access, dinners and self-service bar A bit out of the way but actually liked the quietness and beauty of the surrounding mountains.
It's right in the middle of olive plantation which gives a whole different feeling. Charmingly decorated. Limited choices in the restaurant. One of the menu items not available. Finding the hotel not so easy.
The suroundings and the way you are welcomed by the staff was fantastic. It was an all round fabulous Spanish experiance! Great!
An extremely friendly and welcoming hotel in a beautiful location The access road is very rough in places.
Very friendly staff, even if we arrived after official closure of kitchen, we still got our dinner (because the place is quite isolated, without alternatives for eating late in the evening). Real nice room, splendid courtyard and garden.
staff and location, a pleasant respite from ronda and great food they are upgrading the road in and it is needed.
very peaceful and relaxing hotel in unique building. great food. not easy to find but actually once arrived it was not difficult to find.
The hotel is very charmy. A small hotel with a good hotel service on a nice location (about 20 min. drive from Ronda). The hotel was the first time a bit difficult to find. But it was
excellent location for my needs; high standard of comfort/facilities for my needs Excellent food, but portions rather small
The room was very good The breakfast was not soo good
Friendly and efficient staff.
It was too far away from the town center, and roads around area are windy and not light well for night driving.
I liked everything about this hotel. The receptionist even helped me get an entrance permission faxed at the last moment to the nearby National Park. Muchas Gracias! I had thought that it was in town but, once there, I didn't mind that it was 7km from town as it was the nicest place that we stayed on our trip to Spain.
The room was large
Very handy to visit Ronda , just outside the city on the way to Sevilla. Very calm and sunny pool!
Location was ideal for touring, hotel was nicely decorated and rooms of good quality road works currently being undertaken close by.
Personnal at the hôtel welcoming . Authentic Spanish atmosphere A little bit too far from the centrum of Ronda. Along the highway
You could have a good view of Spains countryside. There was nice art at hotel rooms walls. We waited 40min to get service at reception. There was no restaurants, bars or pools open the whole day. Hotel was at countryside, so we could not go anywhere else. We starved at the hotel room and there was nothing else to do than just watch TV. We actually went to ask hotels staff to give us some proper food because we were very very hungry, but the best they could do was potato chips, toasts and vine and they charged 20 euros from it. It was very noisy till the 23:00 so we could not even sleep. I can not recommend this hotel to anyone. It was the worst hotel experience in my life, and I have been in many hotels. Definetly not a "four-star" hotel. This hotel partially ruined our Ronda-trip because we were very tired on next day.
Not much,paid for a junior suite. It wasn't it was a fair size room only and as such very overpriced. As above. Supposed to be a 4 star hotel. Did't either look or feel like one!
Nice staff,nice clean room.Excellent price.
The hotel was conveniently located in Ronda, just a few minutes walk from the breathtaking views of the gorge. The breakfast arrangement with a nearby cafe was quite good. The young staff were a pleasure to deal with. I would not think twice about staying there again, but for the pillows. The pillows were like sandbags, hard & unyielding.
Very friendly, at check out I even received a small bottle of the local wine.
Friendly staff noisy corridors as all bare marble floors
cleanliness of room; location a fridge would be a welcome addition to the room facilities
Very kind receptionist guy!
The location is very good. It is close to the bus station, train station and the old town. The room and the bathroom are clean. The girl at the reception can speak some English. I have to check out early in the morning so I asked her if there is somebody early in the morning. She said yes. But next morning when I came downstairs, there is nobody and the reception room is closed.
Comfortable, clean and quiet room. Poor breakfast at the cafe where smoking was allowed. Parking quite far away from the hotel.
Little hotel in the center of Ronda. Little rooms but comfortable and clean
Very good location and very fair price. Triple room was very small. It is very difficult to move our lagage around. However, for what we paid, it is fair.
Small, quaint hotel with a gorgeous view of the mountains. Quiet, relaxing countryside stroll just outside the gates. Good food.
The staff and the owner were excellent hosts, they made us feel at home.
Authentic ambience, perfecty renovated building, beautiful views, nice staff. Room decorated with a lot of style, bathroom with massage shower. The price for breakfast includes only coffee and bread with mermelade. No breakfast buffet. Further items will be charged extra (e.g. orange juice). No internet access. Bad television connection.
Beautiful hotel in the countryside complete with its own bull ring and chapel. The room was beautiful (we were even upgraded to a room with a huge terrace even though we only booked a standard room), and the staff were very friendly. Had dinner at the hotel one night, and the food was excellent too. No complaints - everything was great.
The setting was wonderful. The atmosphere was welcoming and very relaxed. We had a very warm welcome and were treated exceptionally well. The food was great.
Peacefull stay, looks of the building, swimming pool, friendly personal, nice room, looks on surrounding, looks from dining area to Zahara, nice dinner. Notting at all, maybe that their english good be better...
There is a beautiful view from the balcony (in the superior rooms) and lovely grounds. The reception staff were very helpful and the room was spotlessly clean The room was quite small for the price, and I would not class the restaurant as 4 star - it was quite basic. There was very little choice for breakfast.
The location, the building, and the decor were charming. The bed was comfortable and the room well equipped. Particularly liked the silence - no barking dogs! The views from the terrace were quite beautiful. It was expensive. The food (we stayed for dinner) was adequate but not four star quality.
Very friendly staff, great location, quiet and relaxing athmosphere, clean and comfortable rooms, good kitchen.
modern spanish decor, green surroundings, easy parking no water with breakfast - I don't like to drink calories!
Very friendly welcoming atmosphere and great location/base for visiting Ronda and the surrounding countryside. English run small hotel and the food was absolutely delicious. Hosts provided great tips and suggestions for experiencing the surrounding countryside. Will definately return sometime.
friendly atmosphere, location, Elaine and Ian's committment to our enjoyment N/A
Friendly, relaxing atmosphere
This hotel is a lovely family hide-out near the city of Ronda, which is just 10 minutes away by car. The family run hotel has a very cosy atmosphere where guests are not treated as individuals and not as numbers. Lovely decorated rooms, excellent kitchen - try the tapas!, extremely friendly and helpful staff - a home away from home.
small and calm, near Ronda and montains
Ian, Elaine and their staff were very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay. The room was excellent and location perfect. Thanks for a great 3 nights!!!
Excellent food at reasonable prices. Friendly & helpful owners. No.
The hotel is run by a very hospitable and friendly English couple. The food at the hotel is very good, good wine, well stocked bar, breakfast included was excellent the best of our trip. Very relaxing atmosphere and nice quiet rooms with comfortable beds.
Beautiful setting and wonderful owners/staff. This was the hi-light stay of our tour through Spain.
walking tours and seightseeing in Alora
The view and the comfortable bed. Not keen on the spiral staircase and no extra pillows in the room.
The room was well presented and had been recently refurbished
The staff was very helpful, the location stunning and the room spacious, modern and comfortable We did not like the food at the restaurant
Staff was very nice. The restaraunt was the best food in the area and reasonable prices. I paid for two rooms online, and ended up paying for them again at check out. This made the cost of the room double. I could not straighten out the confusion due to language constraints. You need to know some Spanish to stay in this area. Also, getting to the hotel is difficult if you do not have a car. It is not in Alora. It is in El Chorro. Fantastic views, but remote.
Location and beautiful view of El Chorro from the window.
The cute little suite with circular staircase was darling, but would have been difficult for a person with any kind of physical disability and too narrow to navigate for anyone above average weight. Great views!
the design of the hotel was very attractive. pool and views excellent. area of el chorro fascinating standard rooms are much too small , cramped and beds extremely uncomfortable
