Location for walking in Picos National Park, really nice room and building.
relaxed atmosphere,good location easy to find.easy walk into potes where there is a large selection of restaurants.
Excellent location and comfortable, friendly staff
Very accessable to the Picos mountains Very basic ammenities
Nice Location witin walking distance of Potes. A fair value for money hotel and would happily stay again.
Staff, food, town, freindly owners. road could be noisy if you left your windows open, air conditioning would help but not essential
I loved the character of the hotel as it did not have the "part of a hotel chain" feel. The views from the front of it and from the rooms at the front of the hotel are fabulous. The location was excellent; in the country side but 1km from Potes (walking distance). There is a small outdoor pool which is lovely to cool down in. The food was good and the staff were lovely also. I would stay here again. Breakfast was not served until 8.30 AM
Good location for exploring the Picos region. Buffet breakfast - excellent choice and lots of it. Pool was great (although a little cold for us feeble brits). Couldn't fault the cleanliness of the room. As it's situated on the main road, you do get a lot of traffic noise first thing in the morning with the lorries whizzing past - making you relucant to keep the windows open during the night.
friendly restaurant good but deathly quiet
Comfortable, extremely friendly and good value for money. Would definately stay at this hotel again.
An attractive hotel situated one mile from the centre of Potes. Stunning views of the Picos de Europa mountains. Large car park, two restaurant areas serving very good food, including the table de hote menu which is what you get if you book half board, otherwise there is a more extensive a la carte menu. There was a wedding reception taking place whilst we were there which is a good indicator of its reputation. There is no nightlife in the immediate vicinity if that's important to you (it wasn't to us).
Staff was very helpful suggesting things to do in arae. Room was comfortable, clean,
The room and its view, the proximity to both town and country and the helpfulness of the staff. There were no tea/coffee facilities in the room.
In the hotel no body spoke english
Good location. Excellent rooms. A very well run hotel which is very easy to explore Potes.
Good hotel location, at 5 minute walking distance from the village center and at 100 meter from a supermarket. The Hotel breakfast room veranda offers a nice view over the mountains. Rooms are pretty basic, spacious, but ok for the price. The corridors are nicely decorated, which made you expect just a little more of the rooms. Make sure you take a room at the back side of the hotel as the hotel is siutated along a buzy main road. It's a pitty that there's no garden or a place outside to sit around though.
clean and spacious room, very quiet, easy access to town and shops/restaurants room facilities a bit basic, e.g., no tea/coffee in room.
Excellent hotel suitable for access to the picos if you have a car.
Nice, well furnished and spacious rooms with, in our case, a superb view of the mountains. We needed parking space for a trialer which the owners readily provided. The breakfasts weren't very exciting.
Great rooms + connecting lounge with views on the top floor with space for 5 people. Close to potes. Next to the main road into Potes so some traffic noise
Room seemed brand new, very modern and comfortable. Included breakfast was good (continental). Parking was easy. All for less than €60.00, excellent value for money.
The hotel was in an excellent position on the main road approx. 5 minute walk from centre of Potes. It is apparent that the hotel has been recently partially re-furbished. We stayed in a newly re-furbished room which was spotless,tastefully decorated,well equiped and had a very comfortable bed. Bathroom also newly re-furbished to a high standard. The receptionist. The receptionist and the receptionist. Ignorant,rude and un-helpfull young woman who had a phone permanantly glued to her ear in deep conversation with friends. So much so that she was unable to verbally welcome us on arrival and continued her rude conversation during the entire check in process. This ignorant behaviour was also noted whilst serving other guests within the hotel bar. We stayed at Valdecoro for two nights and without exception.....on each occassion we passed by reception she was there........phone to her ear.
We loved the location, the cleanliness of the hotel, the friendliness of the staff and the price were really competitive. Absolutely nothing. I could not find anything to fault this stablishment.
The Posada was a little difficult to find but when we did the welcome was superb. The owner took us around the property and showed us the gym, spa etc which we did not realise they had. It was tremendous value and I would certainly reccommend it, and stay there again.
Very nice parador Bedroom was very noisy from adjoining rooms.
The decor in our bedroom was rather an acquired taste with silver-coloured furniture and metal tulips as a bed head! The bed was very hard. As we were the only guests on our first night, we were asked to go and have breakfast in the restaurant cafe a few metres away. This was very basic, toast and coffee, with the locals smoking around us. The second night was better as there were other guests and the breakfast room in the hotel was open and there was more choice. Parking was along a fairly busy road.
We were made most welcome, the staff could not have done more to make our stay very enjoyable. fablous location for visiting teh Picos.
We loved this hotel. The decor is inspired, the staff wonderful, the atmosphere excellent. Peaceful at night despite being just off the main Panes to Potes road. Good restaurant a few metres away. Oh! and excellent breakfast too. rather hot at night as there is no air conditioning but this was a very very minor problem.
Very helpful staff, good location, clean rooms and breakfast choice.
This is an absolutely magnificent hotel, superbly priced, delightfully staffed in one of the most beautiful parts of Spain. We were offered a choice of rooms, settling for what was effectively our opwn cavernous one bedroomed apartment with modern bathroom, spacious lounge and huge bedroom. The setting, just minutes drive, or a beautiful walk from the beatiful town of Potes is breathtakingly beautiful. Fuente De, effectively paradise on earth, with its cable car and stunning walks is also just a half hour drive away and absolutely unmissable. It is a family run business and betwseen them all, the family could not have been kinder and more helpful. I really can't think of anything negative to say about it. Nothing at all
The hotel was at a great location (at the Pixus de Europe), capacious, comfortable, well accessorized and beautiful rooms. Big parking next to the hotel. The staff did not speak English. We had difficult time finding the place because the name of the village on Booking site was of Camaleño and the Hotel was located 1Km from there (Look for little sign on the main road for San Pelayo)
The view from our room was stunning. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The sound proofing could be better.
This is a very nice small hotel in one of the most beautiful surroundings imaginable. The views from the rooms and the yards is fabulous. Sorry we didn't allot more time for this stop.
wonderful views, staff incredibly helpful and friendly
Great balcony with wonderful views!
Superb location and helpful staff.
Warm and friendly welcome with attention to detail. Stunning views from bedroom.
idyllic rural setting; beautifully appointed old building, tastefully restored; balcony off room; mountains nearby the breakfast was only ok; something hot like bacon, or even cold meat or cheese would have been nice
The owners were delightful and made you feel at home, going out of their way to assist even down to lending you their own umbrellas when it rained. The breakfast was delicious with small little pancakes that melt in the mouth.The rooms were comfortable and led onto a balcony withh terrific views
A lovely rural hotel in a farming area, very friendly helpful owners. The Hotel had a truly relaxing and family feel. The sitting room area felt very homely and was full of books and magazines, and other things belonging to the family. Even though we spoke very little spanish all our needs were fulfilled. The mountain views from our bedroom balcony were stunning, and we loved the sound of the sheep with bells around their necks. Some late night Spanish arrivals were very noisy. This could happen anywhere.
The restaurant served a good selection of food well prepared. The hotel and staff were satisfactory and there was a defined sense of history in the building. I had not realised how confined the area around the hotel was and the crowds, coaches and cars that were visiting the adjacent shrine and church.
a wonderful hotel . We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary at the hotel and it was perfect nothing at all
The elegance, the beauty of the hotel and surroundings, helpfulness and amicability of staff.
the rooms the breakfast was not good
quiet, beautiful surroundings....very professional, very friendly staff, an exellent choice.
the room area and the location
Spectacular location, very good staff and management team The acustics in the rooms is very bad (one hears easily noise from other rooms)
Very nice hotel right in Covadonga. Be forewarned that this is the only place you will be able to eat at if you go to covadonga. Food was great and waiter went out of his way to have my daughter cooked pasta although it wasnt on the menu and didnt even charge us a lot for it! Rooms are nice and big. In the middle of nowhere but that was kinda the point.
Great location. Modern and stylish decor.
The hotel is beautifully located in the pictorial town of Covadonga and close to the heart of Picos de Europa (national park in Asturias). View to the cathedral and cave. Our experience was horrible. We paid 100 Euro excluding breakfast for a room in the addict with only roof windows. The temperature outside was mild (mid twenties). The room was extremely hot (above 30) despite the fact the the A/C was turned on at maximum. The receptionist claimed there is nothing wrong with the A/C and anyway they have no other rooms. She suggested to open the roof windows. This did not help and even worse it started to rain and the windows were leaking directly on the beds. Trying to shut them off produced huge amounts of spilling on the beds. We had to sleep like that all night. In addition the TV did not work and the shower spilled all over the bath. I strongly suggest to avoid this hotel.
Lovely setting in the mountains, modern rooms, good breakfast
Hotel is attractive regional design with clean modern rooms comfortable, well equipped with all amenities. Extremely good value with breakfast included. Poor sign-age. No hotel sign visible approaching from the east. Only a very small sign approaching from west. Therefore unnecessarily difficult to find hotel if unfamiliar with the area.
A good place place to stay, comfortable, good food. Unable to control the noisy air conditioning.
very clean and good quality accommodation at an attractive rate; staff pleasant and friendly - nothing not to like! dining room lacked atmosphere, but at the rate we had that was acceptable- food was of good quality and well prepared
I liked that we were close to wildlife and positioned in lush, scenic countryside. Close to Covadonga and close to Llanes and other coastal beaches and miradors (vistas). The food. First night's dinner was bland and dull. Breakfasts (included) were worse. Uninspiring.
Brand new Hotel. Opened August 2008. Nice buffet breakfast.
Great Hotel, huge room (triple), very good facilities and an excelent price.
Location. The bedroom was very pleasent. Big and confortable bed. Bathroom with window. the breakfast was not appropriate to a 3 start hotel. Cleaning of the room was not very effective.
The friendly staff and the relaxed atmosphere. 1. The fact that the other guests were not careful at all when closing the doors. It was very annoying. 2. We were supposed to pay €213, but we ended up paying €213,61. It is not a great difference but we cannot understand why that happened.
The location is ideal and you gave clear instructions on how to find it by road. There is ample parking nearby when the hotel car park is full. All staff friendly, helpful & courteous. Room facilities very good. It is a shame that the restaurant is closed for evening meals on Tuesdays. It would save your clients having to hunt around for an alternative restaurant. Most other restaurants in town also close on the same day.
location of hotel is very good, relative to the town and to the Cares Gorge.
Very very helpful staff, great location.
Friendly helpful welcoming staff. Quiet hotel, comfortable serviceable rooms and nice bar. Nice clean swimming pool. Restaurant was not always open in evening although when it was the food was fine. Breakfast could be better
Fantastic location in the centre of Arenas. Lots of nice bars/restaurants around. 10 minutes drive to Poncebos for access to the Picos de europa national park and the stunning Cares gorge hike. Room was clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hotel. The only drawback was that the room had no a/c and it was very hot in the middle of August!
Able to keep bicycles in safe place
Great location. Great value.
The views! Insufficient secure parking, room for 5 cars at the hotel and 30 cars in a field down by the river and the subsequent trek back to hotel.
the room was very clean and comfortable staff seemed uninterested, dinner menu was very expensive with no alternatives
The location of the hotel was excellent and staff very friendly
Very handy for cable car and walking up a dead end but beautifull valley in the Picos mountains. Nothing but nothing in the way of community, hotel is isolated (which for some may be a very good point).
Excellent view over pastures and mountains. Large comfortable room.
location appearence from ouside not great - dated but fine inside
very old fasion but very nice hotel , prime location near the mountain i like there everythink
Affordable luxuary in a fantastic natural setting Waitress rushed us with our order for evening meal because we took a little time translating the menu and making our choice
I liked the terrific scenery and view from our hotel window. The room was very clean and beds comfortable THe reception staff were not welcoming. On arrival we were told the restaurant was fully booked but we could order in the bar. we waited one and a half hours for a roll, when it came half of it was frozen in the middle - my husbands was barely edible and then he had an upset stomach that night so we did not take breakfast instead we drove to Potes for breakfast
Fantastic location for hikers.
Its location, at the end of a mountain road, surrounded by mountains. The room and indoor balcony with fabulous views.
Clean , Brilliant Breakfast . no
Delicious breakfast. Lovely rooms and comfortable beds. Amazing location! easy to get to with public transportation if needed.
Easy to find in the mountains as it is on a main roundabout but set back and quiet location Moderate restaurant
Nicely decorated cosy hotel located central in nature park. Great value for money. Smoking of guests in the hotel lobby and rooms.
Good location. Noisy neighbourhood from across the street. Main town junction by the hotel...car noise all night long.
We had a very spacious room & bathroom, the bed was very comfortable & we had a picturesque view of the mountains. The hotel is also at a quieter area of the town, so a peaceful sleep!
Excellent location in Potes, good prices and large rooms overlooking the Picos De Europa. The premises are very clean and well kept and the personnel is friendly. The hotel also offers attractive trips and hiking expeditions in the region for small groups or couples. English and German speaking, free parking ... We'll definitely stay there again.
We were warmly welcomed by Claudio and Patricia, who made sandwiches for us even though the cafeteria was not open. We decided to spend the afternoon relaxing on the hammock and sunbed in the garden as the setting was so beautiful. The cleanliness of our room and the house in general was outstanding. When we were leaving, Claudio told us to get in touch with him if we had any problems for the rest of our holiday.
Very relaxed and friendly, hotel owners always happy to help, and the activities they organised were excellent. Extremely beautiful spot. There could be a bit more communication at the start of the stay about how things are run eg ordering food in the restaurant; how activities are organised.
Nice cosy atmosphere and friendly staff
The views were stunning and being just outside the town it was also very quiet.The staff were very friendly, cheerful and helpful and the small garden area just outside the reception/ bar area very pleasant to sit in after a day out. The dinning room had a varied and reasonably priced menu and the food was very good. I was surprised not to find a plug in the bedroom as I wanted to charge my mobile telephone. It would also have been an advantage to have a small table to sit at.
We had a very relaxing time at the hotel due to it's brilliant location
had an amazing weekend at this hotel, the staff were absolutely wonderful, they even gave us a lift to a bus station quite a long way from Arenas de Cabrales on the final day. The food was amazing and great value for money, the room was full of character and very clean, and the views all around the hotels are indescribable. The perfect place to stay during your trip to the Picos de Europa mountains.
