Reviewed 26 May 2014

We stayed there for 3 nights and really enjoyed our visit to the Sumidors hotel. This place is definitely a hidden gem, over 400 years old and full of character! Sumidors offers a comfortable friendly stay, nothing being too much trouble. Our room was clean and well equiped.The hotel is up hill so the views are amazing.
There is also a lovely swimming pool. Evening meals were very tasty and are available by request. This place is a real relax zone but only 10 mins drive to the beach. From near by Sitges you can catch a train in to Barcelona which only takes about 45 mins. This hotel is now under new management which changed hands in January 2014 and is now run by English/Spainish speaking Amanda and John. Would we visit again? most definitely yes! Hope to visit again later this year.

We feel slightly uneasy writing this review as partly we wish the hotel remained the gem of a ´secret ‘place it is but we must give credit where credit is due. We booked last minute, scanned the reviews and decided to give it a go. We stayed 3 days early in May. We wanted a quick getaway from Barcelona, away from noise and crowds but not more than an hour’s drive from BCN and close enough to enjoy the beach in Sitges for a day.

This place proved all this and a lot more. Nested in the middle of the woods, surrounded by wineries and overlooking a beautiful green valley, this place is simply perfect. It has a lovely clean pool (with clean water ready to swim in) with loungers, large garden area, a bar area with tables and chairs and a deck area from which to enjoy the views. We found the hotel to be clean, charming and peaceful. We took a day to go to Sitges (indeed only 10 mins drive!) and were pleased to come back to this tranquil hotel at the end of the day.

Rooms are full of character (in a good sense) with exposed beams, wood furniture and tiled bathrooms – they are clean, on a large side and equipped with all the usual amenities of a standard hotel. Plus, the owners – John and Amanda – will accommodate any requests you may have, nothing is too much trouble for them .

The hotel serves local wine (incl some organic options) and John is happy to let you taste whatever wine (Penedes and beyond) varieties he has on offer (we liked all the wine!). The owners are also happy to prepare dinner on request. We decided to have one of our dinners at the hotel and asked for a vegetarian dish and a meat dish and the owners prepared a generous, wholesome dinner for us.

The breakfast (included in the price) was huge! Fruit, yoghurt, pastry, cheese, meat...the whole gamut. And to my delight, a proper espresso coffee!
It’s worth bearing in mind the current owners are running the hotel only from January 2014 so whatever reviews you may read dated before 2014 apply to the previous management. John and Amanda (the current hosts) have made quite a few improvements from the last owners (not that many were needed…) and are simply wonderful, easy going people and make this hotel the beautiful, pleasant and relaxing place it is. We will be back!

This 400 year old farmhouse in the middle of a National Park is really amazing! A very relaxed and special Hotel, a romantic retreat in the middle of the Garraf hills, with lovely views and very charming rooms. Every room is different decorated, I love the African one...
Hosts are very friendly and helpfull. I recommend it to everybody, for a romantic getaway or a relaxed family-vacation.

We had read good reviews of this place and so were very surprised to find out how it actually is. Due to the absence of the owners we were requested to check ourselves in to a small dark room with an unpleasant shower room (peeling silicone, sticky shower curtain etc). Two dogs were fighting in the entrance yard where beer crates were piled in a corner. The pool has no surrounding terrace or grass -just baked earth contributing to the dusty feel of the outside furnishings. In general the cleanliness and maintenance left much to be desired. We didn't stay but decided to file a complaint - this was not possible to do in the Tourist Information office as this establishment was not on any of their lists - not surprisingly as it would not meet their requirements. This establishment appears on web pages as a three star hotel and it is not. I have read complaints about the road but we are used to country roads - the worry would be getting out in an emergency as there is only one way traffic and in an area where fires are a threat this would be a real problem. Our recommendation would be to see the place before paying any deposit.

We were planning to spend time exploring Barcelona but found this place and the surrounding area much more interesting! The road up to the hotel is an issue but after 4 days we found we had stopped worrying about it. The room was dark but in an old building this is to be expected and in the middle of summer would be cool. The hosts could not have been more helpful suggesting places to eat and also excursions which we would not have found on our own. We also ate in the hotel a couple of times so that we could both relax - the food was plentiful and delicious. it was too cold to swim in the pool but we sat and watched the sunset from a patio area every evening. Yes, some of the outdoor furniture is a little worn, but for us that was part of the charm. We would go back.

I have had the pleasure to stay at this unique place in May 2013 for 10 days.
The hosts Iain and Erik had been the most caring and lovely people, taking good care of me and this stunning venue. It was really nice for me to get away from a hectic citylife to this rual and charming Hotel, with magnificent views into the nature. The individual and cosy rooms, the wonderful garden and the pool - all this small details are giving this place a real "soul".
And not to forget the fantastic dinners in the evening!
All together with the close distance to Sitges and beaches it was my perfect holiday destination.
I felt welcome and almost like home from the very fist minute. I will come again later this year and I can only recommend this Hotel for a ultimative get away and relax experience in the spanish sunshine.

Room Tip: The Junior Suite is fantastic!

We finally found the hotel and did not puncture any tires on the hire car ! Success! What we found was not what we believed that we were going to get ! We were supposed to have 2 rooms together one for my wife and I and one for our two sons. We were shown one room on the second floor and one on the ground floor! The comment that threw us was that we should lock the main door to the "hotel" when we go out or to the swimming pool ! The hotel is, after all in the middle of the rolling country miles from other inhabited areas. One other thing the place is definitely a setting for "birdcage" and Not child friendly - Neil - part owner who met us - smelt heavily of stale beer and was scantily clad. We had paid in advance - a mistake! We hastily left and found a nice place to stay in st pere de ribes - you guessed we didn't get our money back

Sumidors, Owner at Masia Sumidors, responded to this reviewResponded 3 June 2013

We never met these guests - we considered them to be no shows.
They wished to arrive on a Sunday which, as we explained to them, is our day off. We offered them to use our self check-in service which they agreed to: quote "Thanks for the info - look forward to meeting you on the Sunday or failing that the Monday". The reservation confirmation message that was sent to them clearly states that the 2 rooms they booked were across the corridor from each other - not on different floors. The message states that the front door should also be locked for the security of other guests - the hotel is located in the middle of a Natural Park and we frequently see people hiking past on the public road to, and past, the hotel.
I am assuming the somewhat homophobic remarks about the 'Birdcage' refer to 2 gay couples that we had staying at the hotel on the day of these guests' arrival. I would recommend that anyone with such homophobic tendencies not choose to stay in hotels close to Sitges.......
Having got my name (Neil) from the corespondence we had when making the reservation, they have then used it to claim that I was there to meet them (drunk, smelly and scantily clad, no less). Had they met me, they would surely have noticed that my shoulder was injured and my arm in a sling after a cycling accident I had had just a couple of weeks earlier.
Our reservation terms & conditions state that there is a 100% cancellation fee in the case of a no show. These T&Cs were also agreed to.
I requested that this review be removed as a) the guests never stayed b) there are false statements contained in their review c) the homophobic nature of part of their review however it has been deemed acceptable by TripAdvisor.....
