I stayed at this hotel in March 2014 while on a business trip. The views were fantastic - snow-capped mountains in the distance; the set menu each evening was excellent; the staff were very friendly. The room was comfortable, quiet and had wifi. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone travelling in this region. It's also only a... More

I have stayed here a couple of times and the setting, service and food have been faultless. I now often visit to enjoy food that is worthy of a great restaurant anywhere, but at reasonable prices and with a vista that money can't buy. Would highly recommend as a stopping point to break the journey from UK to Spain. The... More

Good location on the centre of the old town. Spacious room, comfortable bed, good bathroom and everything spotless. Great view of the mountains. Nice breakfast. Only a nights stopover, and it was February, but what I saw of Elne and the hotel I liked.

Knowing the area very well but not having used any of the local hotels, the Trip Advisor comments led us to book the Cara Sol. We could not have been more satisfied! The mountain views from our room 202 we're amazing! The evening meal, pristine facilities plus the attentiveness of the owner, John and his staff, were worthy of more... More

I had not heard of Elne before planning a driving trip to Barcelona, but this perfect little hill town claims an origin back beyond Hannibal's encamping there back in the second century BC(?). Although tiny, the town boasts a dark cathedral, more like a fortress. Cara Sol, which is a Logis - so a 3 star style of hotel -... More

My Partner and I stayed here about two weeks ago for four nights. It was a lovely hotel, newly refurbished. The air-con was fabulous as were all the facilities within the room. The TV even had our local news every morning!. Our shutters opening up to the beautiful view across to Canigou. The breakfast was buffet and good. The evening... More

We stayed here for a few days on a trip through France. Elne was quite a discovery, and this hotel was fantastic - great value for money, excellent food/restaurant, great host/owner, amazing views. I would travel to this part of France again, just to stay in Elne and this hotel.

A Yorkshire patron from Halifax and an Aussie/Brummie chef make a great combination. When you add the stunning location it becomes unbeatable. Make sure you reserve a room at the front and you will gasp every time you open the shutters. It's also situated in a lovely quiet non-touristy village with a great open market on Friday mornings.
