The cuisine of Pere Arpa is exceptional - Wonderful melanges of different tastes continued to surprise us - All beautifully presented - Superb service. Alas, we were alone in the restaurant, but then we did have the chef to ourselves !! - nothing to do with the food - more likely due location and the Spanish economy. Well worth a... More

We stayed here for just one night en route between the south of Spain and home; we chose the hotel mainly based on the reputation of its food and on the whole we were not disappointed. The friendly welcome and the modern, comfortable hotel accommodation plus its relative nearness to the autopista were a bonus. We arrived in time for... More

Highly recommendend, but what a disappointment. Poor location, quasi fashionable interior and very common food. Quite disappointing for a presumed star quality restaurant, not even to mention the uninterested, unattentive staff. Any unpretentious local restaurant would do better.

Three nights spent at this hotel were very comfortable. Rooms are stylish, well appointed and furnished. Unfortunately the satellite TV did not pick up any English language stations, and the Wi-Fi did work anywhere except the breakfast room. Breakfast was ample and very tasty. The restaurant was excellent with very attentive and helpful service. Portion sizes were quite large.

The Ca L'Arpa is a very attractive, comfortably furnished and physically comfortable inn. Bathrooms are modern and very well appointed, with wonderful thick towels and very nice amenities. Beds are comfortable with good quality linens. Wifi did not work in my first floor room; I had to access it in the lobby near reception. We reserved a table for dinner... More

The best first. Good location, nice rooms and a dignified chef - you would not guess his Michelin Star. BUT: maybe it was off season, maybe we booked last minute, maybe they did not like us. Whatever it was we felt displaced from the Moment we entered the door. As written in an earlier review 'someone looked after the reception',... More

Having spent a few days in Barcelona, we were looking for a base from which to tour the area around Girona and Figueres. Banyoles appeared to fit the bill and Ca L'Arpa looked the best bet on paper for a place to stay for four nights. We turned up early evening hot and tired after a couple of hours on... More

My wife and I and my adult daughter stayed at Ca L'Arpa in March of 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners are a welcoming and very accommodating couple who genuinely try to make your experience enjoyable We joined them for dinner and had an exceptional meal with very attentive service. The town of Banyoles is a nice place... More

I don't want to wast your time writing fancy schmancy. Staying here was an incredible experience all over. Although it may not be the place you'd imagine bringing along the kids, this worked really well, too. If they get bored in the restaurant, they can just pop upstairs. Pere is a great chef, imaginative and sound. The familty supports him... More

Have just returned from a quick stopover at this Hotel on our way to Perpignan. Lovely room, great food and wine list, all reasonable priced. My wife sadly slipped and twisted her ankle whilst we were there but the owners came to our rescue visiting the local Chemist with me to buy goods and they were so caring. We would... More
