The rooms are renovated softely with taste; the garden seems to be a part of paradise and the hosts are the born hosts, make you feel to be really welcome. Not to forget the breakfast which is homemade with love. And all that for a very good price. We highly recommend El Jardin.

Hervas village is located between Salamanca and Plasencia in a rural area. A beautiful, small place with two rather big churches. Next to one of the churches in a former convent is El Jardin del Convento located. Family-run, seven rooms, a wonderful garden and in this oasis also a small house is build. We really enjoyed our days in the... More

This place rates very highly on Tripadvisor etc, and it is indeed quite lovely. But perhaps not quite as special as reviews led me to believe. There were no major gripes - the room was OK, the staff friendly and full of local knowledge and the garden truly is lovely. Breakfast buffet looked better than it was, was pretty ordinary,... More

We stayed in this hotel at the weekend and it was a really fantastic experience. The inicial greeting and explanation from Amos was top class. The house oozes character, and the relatively few rooms addes to a sense of relaxation. The garden is perfect for relaxing (or playing hide and seek with your kids), the rooms was very comfortable, and... More

On a whistle-stop budget tour of Extremadura, I chose to spend one night, of my four, here. This is not a budget hotel, but a unique and stylish historical gem with lots of homely touches and obvious attention to detail. Sadly, like all of the places I stayed at in EX, I only saw it at night... My room was... More

We had stayed in Hervas on our way north to catch the ferry from Santander and loved this atmospheric little town. Rather than return to the Hospederia (separate review) we decided to try the Jardin del Convento, a few doors down, and we are delighted that we did. We were met by Amos who has good English and was incredibly... More

We stayed here 1 night on the way down from Santander, and the Picos Europa but how I wished we could have stayed longer. The owners are very helpful nice people, Amos the son speaks good english and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was wonderful, nice selection of cereals, meat, cheese and wonderful fruits from the garden. Lovely linen... More

We stayed at this hotel on our way back from Conil to the north of Spain and decided to stay here because of the other comments made on trip advisor. Maybe we were unlucky but our room (number 6) was cold and even when the heating came on at 6pm it didn't warm up enough during the night. By the... More

Stepping through the front door takes you back 200 years to a beautifully restored and appointed house with an interior made from brick with timber framing. The rooms are large and well appointed, but what really sets the building apart is the rear deck with comfortable arm chairs and views across the garden to the hills as does the breakfast... More

We stayed for one night on our way from Santander to the Costa del Sol and were extremely happy with our choice of hotel. It was very cold when we arrived, but the hotel had central heating and our very large room was so warm. The son of the proprietor, Amos, greeted us and spoke very good English and could... More
