we had a large double room with outside patio area overlooking a valley.first class restaurant using local produce.ideal base for touring the asturia region.
Breathtaking scenery from every room, dining room and terrace. A special place,certainly for a romantic stay as we did. The rooms were excellent proportions, with plenty of storage space. Absolutely not!!
Damp mould in roon, staff didn't speak English, but when in Spain we should speak Spanish so not an issue. Very hard to find hotel
Lovely hotel in quiet location. Town has fantastic fish restaurants by port & great beaches nearby
This is an excellent hotel in every way - an old building renovated very tastefully. It has a very relaxed atmosphere, and the staff are very helpful. In a quiet street, yet a few minutes' walk from the town. No.
Great bed room, perfect bath room, typical spanish Hotel, amazing breakfast inkl. Fresh orange juice, everything what you like. Bad to find, bad direction in the city
The hotel had clearly had a lot of time and money spent renovating the building and making into a quality hotel. What a pity there isn't a restaurant as based on the quality of breakfast I'm sure the food would be superb. The wooden floors transmitted noise from above and I was awoken by a late night return of the guest in the room above.
very nice design hotel with excellent service
I was very impressed about the hotel. People extremely nice, the house is beautiful and the rooms and bathroom brand new. Very well Iocated and near to good restaurants. I recommend!
a small , but beautifully decorated hotel. we loved the architecture and the furnishing. the room cleen and spacious walking distance from the city center. the city it self is smal but charming/ as in most of spain the do not speake english
Our third visit and it just gets better . Possibly the best tortilla in the world for breakfast Not a thing .
Very pretty little hotel in an old converted building. Very very clean and excellent value for money. Very friendly staff.... got lots of smiles on way in and way out.. didn't take the mickey out of my bad Spanish.
La situacion, la limpieza y el personal.
Hotel is located in a lovely old building right in the centre and very close to the cathedral. Immaculately clean and tastefully decorated room which faced an inner courtyard which meant that it was nice and quiet. Highly recommended. No breakfast is available although that's made clear when you book.
we were happy with the location on the edge of town and everything was at hand.
Wonderful view over the estuary, friendly staff, convenient parking, a no-hassle visit!
The balcony and the view to the river. Salads in the bar were excellent
Good location in the centre of town overlooking harbour The lift to the room was along a corridor and up several steps so not suitable for people who cannot climb stairs to get to the lift
The staff were helpful, kind and attentive. The hotel and food were a good standard.
Room was spacious and comfortable. Huge bathroom with double sinks a plus. Great view of the river, nice terrace. Food in the restaurant was excellent.
This was a brand new hotel...everything was in perfect condition, very clean and comfortable...staff eager to please...we had a view off the small balcony of the water and scene across the bay. Very lovely It was a little difficult to find at first. Perhaps we came in from the wrong direction.
Quiet setting, spaceous room, excellent value and very friendly service at breakfast although no English spoken (but that applied to the tourist office also).
Very friendly staff - clean, comfortable bedroom - excellent restaurant with english speaking head waiter and a good menu - recommended.
Visited the local area and toured local places of interest
The interior of the hotel is designed in modern, and yet clasical style. The signs directing to the hotel were helpful. The free parking of the hotel.
Very neat and clean, very quiet large room, close to center of town.
Very nice. Seemed like a 4 star hotel at least. Staff was super helpful/friendly. Room was great and the view also. Breakfast was excellent. Near the city center but on a very quiet street. Would of liked eggs or cheese with breakfast.
the views, the size and quality of the room, and the staffs hospitality
position and views,quietness,very polite and helpful staff,well appointed in an understated manner not well signed from the railway station
Wow! What a beautiful hotel with a great view from our 2nd. floor room overlooking the estuary of the Rio Eo. Can't understand why this is not more than a three star. No emergency instructions shown in room or anywhere else that we could find. We did not eat here so cannot comment on the catering standards.
El dueño del hotel, y el hotel en sí mismo muy buena relación calidad precio. El mejor wifi en comparación con hoteles de más categoría, y en la habitación. El baño es excelente con una ducha magnífica y la cama también era muy buena. El desayuno también está muy bien, muy recomendable. Nada
Modern, clean. Very helpful and friendly owner/manager. Close to centre of town and waterfront. Very good breakfast - inclusive. Quite difficult to find, down a side street near main square.
Comfortable and warm. Tastefully renovated 2 years ago. Would have been nice to have had dinner on 1 of our 2 nights
Nothing really. If you are smart enough go to some other place. Food is poor, location is bad and rooms are small
Our room was comfortable and very clean. This feels more like a luxury B&B than a hotel.
Isabel (manager) spoke english and made us feel very welcome. She was knowledgeable about the area, was always smiling and friendly. Definite "home away from home". Beautiful garden, lovely rooms and great bathrooms - olive based shampoos & body lotions. What a treat! Standard rooms offered showers whilst the suites had a shower in the jacuzzi/spa bath. Beautiful wooden furniture in the rooms The TV in the breakfast room. This was a little out of place in a great guest house!
The warm welcome and the remote tranquil setting.
In general our experience with the rural hotels during our trip is that the ratio Quality/price is not correct. Furthermore guests may speak English, French and German but at most of the rural hotels Spanish, drawing and body language are the only tools for communication. At breakfast the residues of the former day(s) pop up.
I loved the staff and the facilities. They were great. Clean and cosy with private bathrooms. Free wifi, free bicycles, and the friendliest owner you could ask for.
Overall a good place to stay, not exactly luxury but good value for price.
Good location for the town centre.Very friendly and efficient staff. Breakfast was the unusual combination of bread and cakes.
Very nice and accommodating host/owner of this very interesting Hotel. Refurbished farmhouse/building to a high standard, predominantly in eucalyptus wood with antique furniture. Fantastic place for walks/treks through the (you guessed it) eucalyptus woods. Somewhat isolated (you need a car) and not easy to find.
Beautiful and peaceful location. Property has been renovated to the highest standard.
Fantastic setting and totally isolated. A large farmhouse beautifully restored with great attention to detail. Very difficult to find even with GPS.
Proprietor was very welcoming and extremely pleasant. Accommodation was of an exceptionally high standard of design and cleanliness. High quality evening meal was provided on request. Location somewhat remote.
Remote mountain retreat with wonderful views. A fantastic restoration of an old building, giving modern facilities. Directions on line easy to follow. Owner really friendly, speaks English, and able to direct us to beach featured in a picture book. Lovely fresh hot toast for breakfast. Had to drive to restaurant for dinner in evening - directed by owner - food and atmosphere great.
Short walk to quiet beaches and easy driving access to larger resorts or nice countryside. Comfortable and spotlessly clean room.
We had the place to ourselves - literally overnight. Lovely old house, beautifully converted and decorated with no expense spared. Very friendly and helpful staff (owner's son?) who advised us on where to eat. Actually his advice was not great; he advised against a local restaurant - one of only two open, which turned out to be excellent. Bit creepy having the whole place to ourselves but when there are a few guests there (and restaurant open) the atmosphere will be great.
friendly staff and excellent food. A few minutes from the beach and semi-rural setting Not really rural now - it is surrounded by hundreds of new-build bungalows and holiday homes. In August everywhere - restaurants, beaches, are bursting with tourists - unbelievable!
It was an facility and an amazing location. The rooms were well kept, clean, romantic, spacious, and gorgeous. The restaurant was amazing...the staff made you feel like one of the family. Rent a bike and ride the coast line, they will lend them to you free of charge! NOTHING!
Diner is good, rooms are nice, quiet location Rooms are very noisy. You can here everything, foodsteps, tv, talking, etc. Didn't get any sleep.
An excellent choice, friendly and helpful staff, breakfast and diners were superb. A pity that this delightful place is surrounded by empty new builds. One could hear the noise from the adjoining bathrooms.....
We were lucky enough to have the family room which, quite honestly, is the best room we've ever stayed in, and we do like our hotels to be good. It was spacious with quality fittings. Our children loved having their own space on the mezzanine floor, it was like their own room. The staff were incredibly friendly and put on a wonderful breakfast. We were the only guests in the hotel at the time (out of season) and were trusted with the whole place to ourselves, so we used the lounge to watch our own dvds. The grounds were beautiful, neat, and very Spanish - surrounded by wonderful Bonsai trees. The nearby beaches are stunning. I quite honestly can't rate this place highly enough and would most certainly stay there again ++++++++++++++++
Loved the ethos of the place and the friendliness and flexibilty of the staff. We liked the values that underpin Casa do Merlo: the honour bar, the can-do approach, the love of good food, the desire to make the stay as nice as possible in a relaxing way.
Good location and access. Food was very good. The bed was a bit too low and I didn't like the bolster pillows. Some harder individual pillows would have been better.
The rooms are large. The hotel is very noisy. We can hear what is happening in the neighbouring rooms and in the corridor. The swimming pool was empty and the hotel looks like it is not properly looked after. The tennis courts were not open. Staff broke glasses in the corridor and did not even bother to clean up properly. We had to carry our dog through that stretch to make sure she would not cut her paw. The restaurant seemed to be shut.
Convenient and comfortable hotel to break a journey from Northern to Southern Spain. The menu del dai for dinner was a pleasant and delicious surprise.
Very helpful staff and comfortable accomodation, in particular the very restful and well furnished hotel lounge. There was a wide choice of items on the very reasonably priced "menu of the day" -15 euros inlcuding wine. The food was excellent.
convenient room not all that clean
the meal of the day was such a bargain i put on a kilo! very tatty room had seen better years.unhelpful staff ,breakfast was one coffee and a crossioant wow
There was nothing I liked about the Hotel or the location or the town of Ribadao The evening staff were inexperienced, the swimming pool was murky and in need of repair. The dinner was of poor quality
