A family run 4 Star hotel with a working bodega. I think it was 2004 the family bought it and have been gradually developing it ever since. I noticed previous review that did not like the themed rooms, whereas we thought ours was fantastic, and at € 85 a night including breakfast was incredible value . The rooms are very contemporary but with this slight rustic theme of the bodega . The en-suite in particular was very clever with, for example, the towel hooks and the toilet roll holder all made out of what looked like flattened glass bottles. All very clever and stylish.
Our bed must have been close to 8ft wide , it was massive and so comfortable. The ceiling was concave and painted like the sky with clouds and tiny led lights like stars that changed colour. We just though it was so different , and brilliant.
The restaurant was in the same rustic/contemporary style. The food was excellent, a little pricey by Spanish standards but excellent value for the quality compared to the UK. The wine also by Spanish prices was a little pricey for quality. We thought the house wines at around €8 were not very good. For example, the upmarket restaurants on the northern Costa Blanca also charge around €8 for house wine, but they are usually crianza Riojas or something similar and much better quality. The breakfast was a very wide selection of pastries breads, hams cheeses etc with fresh fruit and all the usual cereals , plus a never ending stream of fresh juice and coffee.
All the staff provided great service and the level of English was excellent, plus the enjoyed us practicing our Spanish.
Location wise - depends on you . It is next door to a lovely monastry which is open to the public, and other than that all you see is distant hills and grapevines It is though only about 10 miles from Aranda de Duero a large town and centre of the Rubero wine area. Certainly a good spot if on route from the South to the ferry ports .
