We stayed here for five nights and although it was out of town, we were very glad that we did as the hosts and the property made for an excellent stay.
The property is located just outside of El Chalten town. El Chalten is the capital of trekking in Argentina but if you don't like walking into town from your hotel, this won't be for you, as it is about a 4km walk up the drive and down the road. We didn't have a car and didn't find this to be a problem as the hosts provide a courtesy shuttle service at 9am each morning and 6pm in the evening (both ways), and the other times we enjoyed the walk.
El Chalten is a new town with variable quality buildings and a desolate feel - we much preferred staying out at the Estancia with the beautiful views over the hills and the horses and cows wondering around in the front garden - beautiful!
The accommodation itself is very comfortable - the bed was soft and a good size, the room was also a decent size, though the bathroom was slightly on the small size. Everything was in good working order in the room. There are also lots of different common areas in the hotel to sit and relax. Each day the hosts run a brief tour of the property and talk in the history which we found very interesting, and also loved getting to feed the calf and George the lamb!
The hosts really make this property special and after experiencing universally average service everywhere else in Argentina, it was a real breath of fresh air to receive the warm, friendly service here. You could tell that they genuinely wanted to do everything they could to make your stay as good as possible.
For dining in the evening, you either need to do the walk into town and back, organise a taxi, or there is a restaurant on the property. Breakfast is served in the main building, and was the best buffet selection we had seen on our Argentina trip so far.
