Had a lovely restful peaceful break. The room we had was stunning, the views were amazing, in fact I cant fault the accommodation at all. It was 5 star perfect. I loved the golf buggy thing they have going on and found it really good fun getting to the various places in the grounds and didn't even crash once !... More

We, aged 30, stayed at this awesome place for three nights. The hotel is outstanding, the food superb but unfortunaty with little choice and the menu incl starter didn't change in four days. The area around the swimming pool needs some update but the rest is clean and in good conditions. If you like a very quiet place, this is... More

This was a chance visit. I didn't know the hotel, and didn't hear about it. I was just looking for a quiet place for a small 3 day retreat. To be away for just a couple days. Well i was mighty impressed by he site and the accommodation. Of course being part of the Small Luxury Hotel family is not... More

We stayed in Auberge Ostape in June 2013 for 4 nights, with our 3 kids and my parents in law. The hotel composes of a few different houses in regional style that are connected by small roads winding through the hilly countryside and a forest. You have to leave your car at the entrance and move around in electric carts:... More

The attractive, although isolated location, does not alter the fact that you cannot take your car (and you definitely need a car) anywhere near your room, the reception, dining room or swimming pool, but are forced to leave it in a tiny and wholly inadequate car park with insufficient spaces for the cars. From this tightly packed car park you... More

When was the last time you heard total silence? This magical spot on a green mountain top will remind you of lifes true pleasures. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is the spot. Suites are beautiful, food is excellent and service discreet. We loved buzzing around the site in our golf cart. Plan on eating... More

Ostape deserves all the raving reviews it can get, and I feel sorry that I got to write this only three months after our wonderful stay in Ostape in July 2012. Many things have been written about the location and the magical views and the tranquility of the place, I will not repeat those, they are all true. I remember... More

After arriving at Ostape, we are given our golf buggy, our new mode of transport for getting from our "room" to the main house for breakfast and dinner. Our room is more of a mini house, with sitting room, hallway, large bedroom and bathroom and our own terrace. The room was lovely and the only fault being the dodgy electricity... More

Our junior suite was lovely and extremely spacious with two floors. It had a bath and hand held shower. The grounds of the hotel were beautiful. The room rate matched similar tariffs for our stay in Spain/France so it was good value in this category. Breakfast at 22 Euros is a good deal more expensive than other similar hotels. There... More
