We haven't stayed here, but always dine when visiting Sitges. The setting is stunning; all outside around a small swimming pool and with plenty of plants and trees. The menu is varied and changes on a regular basis - the Tuna was the best i've ever had. Dinner for 2 (3 courses and a bottle of wine) costs around £40...

I spent 2 nights here recently. The hotel is easy to find, in a small street running from the market to the centre of the old town. There are several old mansions and this is just one. Full of old style and character, just slightly down at heel in places. The heater in my room rattled rather when in use,...

I don't know if I should be tells no the world about this gem of a Hotel in the friendly resort of Sitges near Barcelona. Situated close to the station the hotel uses an old Art Nouvea mansion and a similar building owned by the same family is situated a few yards away. The family own and run the hotel...

Lovely charming Spanish Modernist house with comfortable beds and good buffet breakfast and as every where in Spain excellent coffee with hot milk. (Why is that so difficult in the UK?) The rooms and surroundings are beautiful if not luxe in the overblown way of so many modern chain hotels. Close to the station, town centre and a few minutes...

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times over the years and I can say that breakfast has improved. Room 201 smells of drains and despite complaining they did not resolve the issue or follow up on the matter. It meant that if I left the bathroom door open my whole room would smell bad. It was noisy with young...

Let me start by saying, I try hard to write reviews which are based on facts rather than opinion, I also try and offer a balanced view of things rather than whine about things I didn't like. Our first visit to El Xalet was in June this year, we spotted the restaurant and were impressed by the menu and the...

Simply stunning old merchants house with high ceilings and period rooms and bedrooms. Very chilled out and relaxing, plenty of places to read books and drink a coffee (coffee machine 24/7). Staff very friendly and helpful. No lift, but luckily welcome A/C in July. In the quieter part of town near to the train station (or easy walk from the...

Great location with friendly staff. Much better than the big chain hotels. This used to be a private mansion but was redeveloped into a charming little hotel. The decor and ambience hark back to a distant time. It has high ceilings and stained-glass windows and a graceful old staircase. Breakfast is an enjoyable affair outside around the swimming pool. Being...
