“I went to bed hungry”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2007

Clean tidy but oh so dead! The food offered was reasonably good but from the days when you needed a magnifying glass to see it. E.G. Day one. A small helping of grilled peppers then a single slice of steamed fish with no veg. To follow enough sliced fruit to fit on a large table spoon. After complaint, quantities increased. Day two. Two modest pieces of local black pudding plus one large chinese style prawn cracker and a dash of sweet sauce. This same item was one of the main courses on day three. No potatoes, no rice and no more veg than some fried peppers. Also does pate de fois need to be garnished with 'chocolate sauce' Their 'acclaimed ' young chef needs lessons and I'll bet no German tourist with their love for good helpings would go again..

Very expensive hotel for what we received and not helped by near absence of other guests. E.Mail details showed a pool but there was not one.

We stayed in the hotel during June 2006 for one night in a lovely comfortable room. We enjoyed treatments in the spa which were excellent followed by a lovely dinner with friendly service.

The hotel is located in a beautiful village and was a perfect stop over from Spain to France.

  • Liked — The spa was excellent
  • Disliked — rooms were quite dark

Although the small village of Tramacastilla de Tena looked a bit dead when we visited it in May (the Pyrenees: too late for the skiing season, too early for the summer season) we enjoyed our stay there very, very much.
The reason: the magnificent hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms are (although not very big) comfortable, very clean and beautifully furnished.
We only had our breakfast at the restaurant, and it was excellent as well. Coffee-lovers as we are, I even have to admit we drank the best coffee we ever had!
The overall atmosphere in the hotel was one of peace and relaxation, and simply watching the simple quality design of every piece of furniture was pure pleasure.
Highly recommended!
