A small hotel with the heart and soul of a Grand hotel. Greeted personally on arrival by the owners, given a glass of champagne and orientated to the town. Breakfast was fresh, hearty and tasty. If you come to this part of Spain you must not miss this experience. There website accurately reflects the facility. Secure indoor parking available.

This is a small, 6 room hotel in what used to be the town bakehouse. It is beautifully kept and the staff are wonderful. The rooms are not huge; but they are very comfortable and all you need is there. Simply the best situation, with all of Altea within a stroll. So much nicer than a large impersonal place.

Our week long stay, at this stylish boutique hotel, got off to an excellent start when we arrived after 2100hrs and were greeted warmly. After being shown our respective rooms the offer of a glass of chilled cava was most welcome. This standard of attentive service set the tone for the rest of our stay. Breakfast the following morning was... More

We stayed here for a week to celebrate a major birthday ... everything about our stay was great, and as others have noted, nothing is too much trouble for the owners. When they had trouble reaching a restaurant by phone, they went to visit it during the day for us to see whether it was open. Breakfasts were great, classic... More

This was our second visit to Altea and we purposely chose this hotel for its central location in the beautiful and charming town. All of the towns restaurants, shops and cafes are a few minutes walk and the hotel is wonderfully quiet at night.

2nd boutique hotel visited in Spain, very nice. Good location, up a small hill, close to the church and main square in the old town. Made to feel very welcome, lovely welcome on arrival by Julie. Buskers in the square annoying though when you are eating dinner !

A very nice and hospital hotel. Close to be at someones house. Service was very good. Hotel breakfast was a lot of different choice to choose from and some of the food was on request. We will go back.
