This was the country part of our holiday - Salamanca & Toledo being the city part. Location for the National Park of Monfrague was excellent - a 15 minute drive and you could be watching Vultures and Black Storks at the superb Salte de Gitano, or off walking in the park itself. There are no towns within 25 miles and the local village of Torrejon el Rubio has not much to offer apart from stocking up for provisions for picnics on walks. The hotel itself was of interesting recent design and airy and pleasant. The reception staff were excellent and the Menu del dia at 16.50 euros in the restaurant provided good value and excellent. The room was spacious and well appointed. There was only one downside to the room - the unusual somewhat unpleasant smell emanating from the bathroom - this was probably because of the location meaning there was no connection to mains plumbing and certain disinfectants being used. There was a dividing door which meant this smell did not encroach on the main bedroom, and we did to a large extent get used to it!
I liked the setting of the hotel, the outside terrace and the fact that the air conditioning was working well.
The space and scenery around the Hotel itself. Also the use of the swimming pool. Just one thing, the outdoor swimming pool did not have a life guard which of course absolutely necessary and if I am not mistaken obligatory by law.
it was well placed for what i wanted and everything was how it should be
The service and the unusual architecture The front entrance garden and car park look very shabby and unkept which belies the smartness and comfort of the hotel inside.
Proximity of P.N. Monfragüe The "menu of the day" could be improved.
Location is superb near the parque. Very relaxed stay. Good kitchen. Restaurant with highly priced menu, but the daily-menu is very good (also enough choice) and not expensive. Design-rooms is nice but not always very handsome.
Good value dinners. Very handy for our purposes, ie bird watching in the area from Jerte to south of Trujillo. Staffing of the bar was inadequate. There was no dedicated bar staff, instead waitresses were called from the dining room.
This is a poorly designed, starkly furnished and badly maintained hotel with painted or bare concrete walls, ill fitting wooden flooring, shoddy furniture and plumbing system the sound of a jump jet. Four stars bears no relation to the level of comfort but the price does. It's only redeeming feature is proximity to Monfrague but Casa Rurales or Trujillo would be preferable.
The hotel is located in a very nice natural environment.
It would have been very quite had there not been a funfair going on.This we were told only happens once a year . Its location as it is in the middle of nowhere--- no shops, coffee shops, or anything of interest to visit---- none of the staff spoke one word of English.
Great Hotel, fabulous building in a special village square. Enjoyment added to by the May day festival going on in the village
beautiful hotel in peaceful location with good pool and wifi it is a spanish hotel and not on a usual tourist route so a knowledge of spanish would be useful-but the staff are friendly and helpful
Room & balcony N/A
The building and its location are fabulous. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff were all very friendly and their spoken english was good. Both dinner and breakfast were enjoyable. We only stayed one night but would very much like to return for longer.
The hotel building is keeping historical outlook, but the inside is renewed, clean and comfortable. Recommend Half-Pension option, which is reasonable price, food quality is good enough. Maybe some more English speaking staff?
Very peaceful tranquil setting in a very pretty village. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and polite.The choice at breakfast was very good. The evening meal was served by only one woman who though trying her best was overwhelmed by the numbers dining.
Beautifully restyled 15c monastery-very tastefully done and a great place to stay.Despite comments below, we would look forward to staying here again Great to have PC in our room (with mega screen) but staff not pc literate and struggled to get emails working-they were trying hard to be very helpful though! Dinner was designer (ie small portions!!) but tasty- but service amateurish.The sole waitress avoided eye contact with new diners, so we just seated ourselves and waited until she decided it was our turn to receive the verbal menu. Shame as it is a beautiful dining room, spoiled by poor staff training
Everything was perfect. Cosy and quiet small town in the center of countryside - ideal place to relax for bored city residents. Pleasant interiors. Nice swimming pool. Nearby there are some walking routes along Extremadura's countryside. Of course, you have to get the car to reach that town. Nice restaurant with amazing local specialties. The food was fresh and delicious. For cheese gourmet I recommend to taste the first item in the menu (all the menu is in Spanish as long as nobody in the restaurant speaks english - ask for "quesa cremosa" - wonderfull local cheese)
Excellent service and friendly staff. Free Parking. The only restaurant in the hotel and the whole town does not open the door for dinner until 9pm.
