"Hemos estado dos noches. La verdad la habitación muy bien, limpia y la cama muy cómoda. Personal muy atento en general. El salón social un puntazo para tomar un vino tranquilo y picar algo. La visita a la bodega incluida en el precio de la habitación muy interesante, mejor incluso que algunas otras más conocidas."
"This place is defiantly worth a visit. The tour of the wine cellars and wine tasting afterwards was brilliant. Even though it was a bank holiday the manager took us on a tour himself, it was fabulous. The hotel is really lovely, the staff are great and we had one of the best days of our holiday. I can not recommend this place enough. There really is nothing not to like."
