What a beautiful little place. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Wild Horses. We stayed in Zebra room, it was pretty, clean and luxurious. We loved the details to the garden and enjoyed relaxing in the lounge by the fire. My personal highlight was the private dinner we had in the wine cellar, just us and a beautiful small cellar, with soft music and candles. What a spoil and so romantic !! The food was good overall, but the starter was something out of this world! Who knew tomato soup could taste like that when combined with a creamy corn soup and decorated with almonds and... wait for it, chocolate sauce!! Wow.
Breakfast was also great and they serve good coffee. Another thing that I loved was the proper filter coffee in the room and not just some instant stuff.
The only thing that I would recommend is to give a little more attention to amenities in the room, a little soap would be nice, a better range with shampoo AND conditioner, and then a pretty little bottle for the bubble bath, not that huge cheap plastic container, which really made me giggle.
Other than that we had a fantastic time just unwinding and relaxing. It is exactly what were looking for in a guest house.
Thank you so much to Tina, Fransisco and all the staff. Thumbs up!!
