    we stayed here a few years ago and will never forget it but not for the right reasons. As independent hikers we ate in the local cafe the first night but as this was closed the second night we ate in the hotel restaurant. the food was perfectly acceptable.We were led to believe that after dinner tea was part of...

    In the centre of a wonderful mountain area that offers a wide range of walks and landscapes, this is a marvellous base for a walking holiday and strongly recommended. Room and bathroom perhaps a bit basic but had what you need - includes kettle and drinks stuff but not hairdryer or TV in room. We had a great view from...

    We’ve just returned from a walking holiday (www.mountainwalks.com) based at Hotel Els Frares. This is our third visit and is becoming an annual retreat. The hotel is an oasis of calm with spectacular views. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable with amazing tiled floors. There are several cosy lounge areas and a sunny courtyard for relaxing and log fires in...

    My wife and I stayed at Hotel Els Frares for four nights over Christmas 2008. We chose this hotel specifically because of it's location, it's size (we didnt want a large, soulless hotel) and the Christmas hospitality package. Our expectations were fulfilled on all fronts! The hotel is situated amongst absolutely stunning mountainous countryside. We used a car to explore...

    Having just moved house and been busy decorating, we needed a break away from it all over Christmas and New Year. Els Frares proved to be the perfect choice. The hotel is beautifully appointed, with comfortable rooms, roaring log fires and superb food. The walking programme was outstanding with excellent and knowledgeable guides leading us through wonderful countryside. The owners,...

    From the time we arrived to the the time we left Pat and Brian were great hosts. Everthing about our stay was fantastic the views from the hotel, our room, the food, the conversation all made for a stay to remember. We will look forward to returning again and again to this special place in the mountains.

    Having previously visited Els Frares with my partner, who was on a long trip to the far East, I decided to book a Christmas holiday on my own and chose this as the perfect venue. This was my third stay at Els Frares, simply one of the most friendly and well run small hotels anywhere in the world. Brian and...

    Having read such positive reviews; we reserved and looked forward to our stay. It was a hassle to make a deposit of a mere 12.50 Euros as they would not accept a credit card deposit. We experienced a less than warm welcome despite the low occupancy rate. The only welcoming, friendly and smiling person was the dining room server. The...

    After 5 days in Valencia city for their Fallas festival, we yearned for the quiet of the countryside and a break from fireworks. What better way to relax than three wonderful nights at Els Frares. We love walking in the mountains but, never having walked in Spain, we weren't quite sure where to start. A quick google search for walking...
