“Found by accident will come again”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

We needed a stop half way between Gibraltar and Barcelona and we found this. We loved it from the moment we arrived. Secure parking behind electronic gates meant we didn't have to unpack the whole car .The garden was beautiful with loads of good quality loungers. Reception spoke good English and were very helpful. The room was big and over looking the gardens. Free WIFI and English TV programmes! Perfect for weary travellers with another 3 days travelling ahead. I went for a swim..bit nippy in the pool but soon warmed up in the sun. The breakfast next day was lovely. Lots to choose from Pre packed or covered for cleanliness. Real linen table clothes. Everything about this Hotel said class..apart from the price..we thought it was soooo cheap compared with some places we have stayed in in Spain! Fabulous. Will defiantly stay again and stay longer next time.

Room Tip: over looking the gardens and pool is nice room 206 I think ours was

Just had a wonderful week walking with HF Holidays in the area surrounding delightful Biar. Very quiet, real Spain. Hotel helped to make it an even better week, good service, good food and friendly helpful staff in a lovely location. Well worth a try if you want tranquility and a nice hotel.

A number of earlier reviews mention the noise issue. This has now been sorted by the use of a clear plastic cover on the "flue" between the first and third flor. Thus light in but noise out. The pool incidentally was perfectly clean. Nice gardens and a fun place to laze on our day off from walking. We liked this hotel. Friendly staff, large spacious rooms and sensible pricing. We ate there every night as part of a walking holiday package. The food was acceptable rather than excellent but I suspect that had more to do with the holiday company,s budget rather the chef,s ability. Biar is a hidden gem with great views from the castle, a lovely old church, a fine pottery and most of all excellent walking in the area in general

What a nice place to spend a few days, just relaxing by the pool in a large garden. plenty to keep the visitor occupied during the day, eg castle, quite walks, you could take one particular walk which i did in 2 hours or more and see everything, churches, fountains, pottery shop, the old tree, the old monk house, a very small church, the old toy factory.
warning not for the faint hearted,cuz theres tons of hills, so lots of ups and downs.

Room Tip: get a room overlooking the pool

Reviewed 4 June 2013

Stayed for 3 nights, the hotel is in a great location to explore the lovely town and surrounding areas however, as stated in an earlier review there is an amount of noise, for some reason they have an open 'flue' running from the 1st floor to the 3rd, whilst this lets in natural light it also acts as a soundbar to transmit all the noise from the bar throughout the hotel. The doors don't self close slowly and bang which echoes along the corridors, when the room next door showers you will know about it due to the noise. The pool was too cold and not clean enough for us to use and my wife couldnt use it because there is only access vai ladders, If you are a light sleeper avoid at all costs, and if you worried about safety........ I dont know what the fire regs are in Spain but having done 30 years as a firefghter in a busy metropolitan brigade it concerned me that the only means of escape is via an open staircase and as mentioned earlier there is an open chimney that serves every floor, our door had no seal or intumescent strip and had a gap around all edges that not only let in light and noise but could let in smoke and gases. I was going to discuss it when we checked out but the receptionist seemed bored by our presence

Room Tip: Avoid room 201 its between the lift and the soundbar

Dear eric1999,

Thank you for your comments on tripadvisor, all our guests’ opinions helps us to improve every day the running of the hotel.

Referring the noises on the second floor, we inform you that we have solved the problem permanently.

We regret that the pool did not have the adequate temperature for you, but the weather during your stay did not help at all. The pool is cleaned daily and, for the convenience of users, has no stairs access from one side of the garden.

As to whether the hotel meets all spanish legal requirements for safety in case of fire, we answer with a resounding YES. Otherwise, the hotel would be closed. We resent that the information relating to the safety of our hotel does not conform to reality. If you, as a firefighter for 30 years, were unable to see that the hotel has TWO clearly marked stairs (not one) as evacuation routes, perhaps you should refrain from making such comments because all you get is damage our image without reason.


Thank you once again for your review and we hope to serve you again on near future.

Regards.

Fantastic hotel and excellent value. Staff are so friendly and efficient and the food is wonderful and plentiful!! Great chef. I cannot speak highly enough of everyone and everything in this hotel. A five day stay was just not enough

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms but you could try a suite.

We have just returned from a walking holiday here and although mostly the hotel was quite pleasant the housekeeping in the rooms left a lot to be desired. The most that seemed to happy was the dust was moved from one corner to another. The food was variable but the waiting staff and receptionist went out of their way to be helpful.

Room Tip: Try to be away from central atrium
