“Very civilized”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We booked in advance for a two day break during summer and received a good rate; if we overheard the rates being quoted to walk-ins correctly, it's worth reserving. The place is friendly, clean and well placed with pleasant gardens in front. We understood that it had been recently reopened under new family management. Rooms are well appointed but might benefit from a fridge if you want to keep picnic items cool for hiking etc.; good bathroom and shower. The wifi didn't seem to work and, as helpful as the receptionist was, she had no success either. Breakfast, which was included, was a positive surprise: fruits, cold cuts, cheeses, pastries, breads and jams, bacon and eggs, juice, teas and coffee. The other restaurant which opens onto the street too, offered a very reasonable set menu, but service and presentation was a bit lackluster if you're being picky. It seems an ironic truism that despite rampant unemployment there is near universal chronic staff shortages in the service industries of Europe.
A strange quirk of Espot is that as a tourism hot-spot, cards and souvenirs everywhere, a post box in evidence, all shops, hotels, Tabacs were adamant that there were no postage stamps for sale in town or indeed for about a 40 km radius.

Room Tip: Front rooms have a town view, rear rooms the mountains

Espot itself is a very small town, but really convenient for access to the National Park - we stayed in the Hotel Saurat for 2 nights and would happily recommend it for other visitors to the national park - great value for money too.

The rooms are cosy and comfortable and have everything you'd need (including plenty of hot water for a long shower after a day's hiking!) and the staff were friendly and helpful - especially when helping plan our walks in the park. Breakfast was a good spread (including some superb croissants and pan au chocolat!). The hotel has its own car park which could well be a real positive in the busy season.

Overall, a great option for exploring the National Park.

We were not sure what to expect in such a small town but we were very pleasantly surprised with the extremely helpful staff, wonderful restaurant, and this very clean, pretty hotel. The restaurant staff was friendly and able accommodate our dietary needs. Lovely setting and great hotel.

Stayed in this cosy family hotel during our visit to the National Park.

The rooms are very cute! :-) Everything you need is there. Free Wifi was also available in our room. The staff is very friendly and very helpful! They gave us great tips to explore the park, because there was still a lot of snow. Breakfast is also good. They have a free parking for their guests.

We'll definitely come back here!

Very well located hotel, close to the Park and in the city with food store and restaurant nearby. The only one in Espot with a parking. Good restaurant in the hotel. Great view from the rooms. Rooms fully equiped.

The best hotel we had during our stay on the The National Park of Aigüestortes and the lake of Sant Maurici. Pity we didn't know, or we would have stayed longer here.The atmosphere was cosy and relaxed. Our room was spacious and modern, with views overlooking the lovely garden with mountains in the distance. The bed was huge and very comfortable . Breakfast was very good whith lots of choice .Quality and staff were happy to accommodate individual requests.The hotel has good parking. We will be back.

This is without doubt the most nicely situated hotel in Espot. It is just a few steps from the taxi station for going to the national park, and it has its own garden with pear trees, grass and flowers. The mountain view from the balcony was beautiful. Overall, the hotel has a very relaxed feeling about it, although we admittedly did not visit during the high season. Breakfast was good. It was possible to order picnic packages for lunch, which were simple but good—just what one wants in the middle of a day-long hike in the mountains.

The beds were hard and not a proper double bed, but this seems to be the norm in Spain, so we have not let this fact detract from the overall rating. The room was very clean, as was the hotel in general.

The staff was helpful and always available. Two convenience stores are nearby. The hotel has its own private parking, and there is a restaurant in the same building that serves nicely cooked local dishes.

The Internet connection only worked in the lobby, but at least it was reliable and had decent speed. There is good 3G coverage in the rooms, if you have the foresight to buy a local prepaid SIM card in a larger town.
