I have stayed at El Caballo a number of times usually on a Saturday night. Be prepared - it was once a wonderful Spanish themed resort, but needs a lot of loving attention to bring it up to scratch. The rooms are comfortable & quite large, most things work; staff are friendly but often scarce, especially in the evenings; the... More

Stayed for two nights as part of a weekend conference retreat. Rooms are filthy, dusty, smell musty and mouldy. Towels are threadbare with holes. Our first room flooded due to drains backing up. Second room's fridge was leaking badly. Everywhere is badly neglected, dodgy paving everywhere, just waiting for a major fall to happen. Beds are sagging, blankets smell funny,... More

Stay here on a reasonably regular bases & know not to expect much but it would have been nice this time if the toilet had flushed. Have not eaten there recently so can't comment on the food. Nice & quite as I think we were the only people there.

My mother purchased a package which included a concert, hotel and food for a new years eve treat with 7 friends. The stay was very dissapointing . While the concert venue was good and the hotel was ok but nothing special, the food (buffet) was terrible! Not only was there not enough food, it was of very poor quality and... More

Today, passing by, I introduced myself to someone outside and asked for the owner. Dressed and presented in a worse state than someone living off the streets I received a rude and gruff " i'm the owner, i'm busy"..on a request if he had a minute to spare.(my intention was to enquire if the place was open ( it didn't...

After working at this Resort in 2000 ( for only about 4 mths) I am really saddened to see the place so in need of repair and the gardens full of weeds! The rooms and hallways were smelly and dirty and cobwebs in the rooms. Plus crockery didn't "gel" ..... slept 3, yet had 1cup, 2 tsps, 2 knives &... More

The place was great in the 80's. However thats probably the last time it was updated. Or cleaned for that matter. Mattresses smelled, carpets filthy, room dirty and damp. Gardens not maintained yet you pay 2014 prices to stay there. Would be better off camping ...

My husband and I stayed here and what an experience we had. This place isn't a resort, it's dirty, the room was falling apart, the back door didn't lock. However that wasn't the worst part at all. When we had dinner, we waited one and a half hours for our main. The poor ladies were running around trying to keep... More

My wife and I stayed here (well, attempted too) following the Avon Valley Food and Wine Festival. I will start with the positives: Friendly staff. Unfortunately that was pretty much the only positive to this hotel. Upon entry to the main lobby it was absolutely freezing! Wanting some warmth when we got to our it was not a very pleasant...
