This is a sophisticated travellers choice. Set in the countryside with cow bells and sublime quite I loved the place. For sea swimmers the town of Mutuki is wonderful and Bilbao and the French boarder is bit far away. I visited Guernica on the way. Wonderful food and tricky to find check out Google Earth to get the idea. It... More

We loved the quiet intimacy of the hotel which happens to have a superb restaurant so after travelling, please make the booking to eat dinner in the restaurant. The hotel is set in very pretty countryside close to Toloso and 20 minutes from San Sebastian and 1 hour from Bilbao as well as close enough to Biarritz to go for... More

This is a very unnique hotel because of itś isolated situation in the beautiful Basque countryside. This is a place to go to contemplate the surroundings and relaxe, not a place for any kind of entertainment. The staff are all delightful and very helpful. Especially the lovely Brasilian bartender Diego. We tried the restaurant for lunch on our first day... More

Having read previous reviews I can understand the mixed reactions. At first we thought the building austere & the staff rather impersonal. We also found our room dark. However, the location is lovely & the food both in the bar & restaurant excellent.

And perhaps a bit too elegant, since my boyfriend and I felt a little misplaced. We were by far the youngest guests and felt we got treated slightly differently (even if that wasn't the case on purpose, in a hotel aiming for superiority and excellence, this shouldn't happen). Example: when checking out, we haven't been asked how and if we... More

This is a first rate hotel set in a lovely secluded part of the Basque Country. Family run by a friendly team this is an oasis for lovers of food and wine. Modern and stylish this traditional family building has been restored to exacting standards and is rightly popular and well worth the winding trip.

A wonderful gem of a hotel set in the Basque countryside about 40k from San Sebastián. Great blend of traditional and contemporary styles that create a tranquil retreat, great place to relax and even better to eat and drink. Lovely friendly owner and staff.

This hotel is situated a short drive from Tolosa. You definitely need a car if staying here as it is remote and outside of the hotel restaurant, the nearest restaurants are a 20 min drive through the hillside and country roads. The hotel is very comfortable and the rooms beautifully furnished and very clean. The only draw back is that... More
