Excellent hotel in a superb setting.
Staff were attentive, friendly and efficient.
The room was clean and of a good size.
We attended a dinner with a group and the kitchen staff had problems providing food for all the guests at the same time. Prawns and also other meats were tough due to apparently being kept warm for too long.

We had lunch in the hotel to celebrate our daughter's special birthday and enjoyed it so much that we booked dinner the same week.
As we struggled to book a taxi locally ( limited Spanish) from our rental house we decided to stay the night. We were allocated a room overlooking the lake with fantastic views. The room was traditional but very comfortable with a roomy bathroom.
Our dinner was delicious with a great bottle of wine at a very reasonable cost.
We enjoyed the hotel so much we have booked for a week in September of this year. The service was a little bit serious at times but hopefully when we stay a whole week the staff will become more familiar.

Room Tip: A lake view on an upper floor would probably be best choice although they could get quite hot in the...

Had the pleasure of having dinner here twice over past week. While it comes across as a bit stiff and formal the service and food were both divine. Everything was faultless and I have started dreaming about the food and how I can find an excuse to return.

We have just enjoyed the most wonderful Valentines evening dinner at the Hotel La Vinuela.

The ambience, service and - most importantly - food quality could not be beaten.

We enjoyed a couple of pre-Dinner drinks in the bar where the restaurant waiter bought out the menus for us to study at our leisure.

On going into the restaurant - small and intimate - our orders were taken immediately then we were offered a lovely selection of hot bread rolls accompanied by a complimentary homemade/delicious Melon Mojito and a small Smoked Salad tartlet.

We both had Starters then my husband chose Duck for his main course whilst I had the BEST blue Fillet Steak I have ever had. We shared a Dessert (more than enough for 2 people) then finished with Coffee and Brandy. The whole meal cost just 87€.

Very pleasant, easy listening music played all night.

This was a magical evening - made even more so as at the next table a young man was proposing to his girlfriend on Valentines night (and she accepted).

We will be returning to the hotel for another wonderful meal very soon.

Can I say first of all that we had a lovely meal here. It is not however 4 star either in respect of food or service.
On our arrival we were asked if we had a reservation, which we had, for five people. The table wasn't ready and we had to wait while they muddled together a fifth place setting...not a good start as we had booked as a thank you to our daughter and her husband for having us to stay at their holiday home in Puente don Manuel. We were shown to our table and the waiter disappeared, we presumed to fetch menus. We sat for a few minutes, chatting and waiting for someone to take a drinks order. Our wait became irritatingly lengthy and I noted that the head waiter/ restaurant manager appeared to be showing a young couple what I think were the wedding facilities. Now while I appreciate that this might well be an integral part of their business, is a Friday night, in the middle of a fully booked dinner service, when the staff are stretched to cope, really an appropriate time? The wait had got to the point where we were on the point of getting up to leave when a very pleasant young waiter appeared with menus and took our drinks and food order. We settled down to our drinks and meal and the food was good but not exceptional. But to be fair the prices are reasonable and the views from the terrace over the beautifully maintained gardens to Lake Vinuela are superb.
We were again disappointed when a more senior waiter came to take our orders for dessert/coffees and he most certainly displayed an attitude. I might add at this juncture that we have dined here on three occassions, and our daughter, numerous times, while on holiday and this particulair member of staff's attitude is very hit or miss. He swings between very charming and very off hand which, in itself, is unacceptable in his chosen career.
Our departure was not acknowleged, another bug bear of mine, and just about summed up the lack of attention to detail.
In summary, the terrace here is a pleasant location in which to spend an hour or two over a pleasant meal or drinks but requires a good Maitre'd to lick the staff into shape if they are serious about achieving the 5 stars displayed at the entrance.

Room Tip: Dine or have drinks on the terrace for superb views over Lake Vinuela.
