4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

A very pretty hotel in a great location. The rooms were nice but a little disappointing - small things like poor sound insulation and a too-cold geyser let down an otherwise lovely hotel a little bit. The restaurant was good (although a few more vegetarian options on the menu would be great!) and service was very friendly and generally good.

We enjoyed our stay at Surval olive Estate. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. The staff were very friendly and we had a excellent dinner at the restuarant. The breakfast was very good with a variety of cold and hot from the buffet.Thank you for a nice stay.

My wife and I recently had an anniversary dinner at Surval and quite frankly, it took our breath away. On arrival we were met by friendly staff smiling from ear to ear making us feel completely relaxed and welcomed. We received our glasses of sparkling wine and escorted to our private dining area, where a candle lit table was set... More

Surval offer a little platter of their olives, oil and various olive pates. Their product is really tasty and value for money. The setting of this estate is truly exquisite and we were sorry we had not booked some time to stay as guests. They also have a beautiful restaurant on site. The décor and set up is absolutely gorgeous... More
