  • BestAntigua casona familiar rehabilitada con esmero en la que el contraste de la piedra con el colorido de los textiles es perfecto. Mucha luz natural en las habitaciones y en la zona de estar. Nuestra habitación muy cómoda, espaciosa y limpia, con detalles de bienvenida y cafetera Nexpreso. Mención especial al todo el equipo que han hecho nuestra estancia muy agradable, siempre dispuestos a ayudarte en todo. El desayuno muy completo. Estupendo jacuzzi para relajarte después de las excursiones a la Sierra de la Estrella o las visitas a los pueblos de alrededor. Facilidades para encargar pizza o comidas/cenas para tomarlas allí. También te hacen comidas ligeras: ensaladas, tostas, tortillas, si avisas con antelación. Y al final de la tarde el salón invita a tomar unas copas y disfrutar de los momentos vividos a lo largo del día, en nuestro caso al calor de la chimenea.

  • BestNo se me ocurre un punto de mejora: nos recibieron maravillosamente, la habitación muy bonita, cómoda y acogedora y muy muy bien insonorizada, el desayuno fabuloso, buen ubicación y con un jacuzzi para nosotros solos. Hemos pasado unas mini vacaciones muy buenas. Muy recomendable.

  • BestEstuve alojado una noche. Fue fantástico. El alojamiento es espectacularmente bonito, con piscina exterior, jardines y un jacuzzi enorme. A mí llegada me permitieron usarlo y tuve la suerte de disfrutarlo yo solo. El hotel no tiene restaurante, pero si hacen platos sencillos tipo hamburguesas o pizzas. Súper amables. Fue un placer haberme alojado allí y si puedo volveré con mi familia.
