Small and very cozy family hotel, located quite far away from the city center. The cab will cost about 15 pounds, but it is the perfect hotel for a short business trip or family weekend in this beautiful academic center.

Checked in ok, room was large and well furnished to a good standard. We were on the ground floor, which was a little noisy as corridor ran past the door, but slept ok, but hotel didn't feel that busy (perhaps request a non ground floor room if light sleeper). Bathroom was great, large, well lit, great shower, Overall the room...

I stayed here on business for one night, it is unlikely I would stay again. The size of the room was very generous, I didn't realise that they still made such small TV's though, bring your own binoculars. A couple of frustrations for me included hair dryer not working and listening to two vans unload from 7am to past 8am...

I stayed in this quiet and elegant hotel for two weeks and the setting, manor houses, restaurant and rooms are all magnificent. Above all I would like to highlight the unbeatable treatment received by the reception (Antonio, Virginia, Belén) and the restaurant (especially Inma) staff. Thank you so much for all!

My wife was booked into this hotel by her workplace. She was booked into a room in Elm House. The room was adequate but she found that there was only one socket in the room to UK standard, the rest were unusable. Whilst this is not so bad, the UK socket was by the door meaning she had to plug...

First impressions were good. Nice room but the bathroom tap was so stiff I could only get a dribble or it shot all over the place. Not too much to be concerned about though. But the big disappointment was the breakfast. The cooked food was good. The organisation in the dining room needs to be sorted. My husband and I...
