I was here as part of a bike tour and simply loved my time here. I thought this was a beautiful and unique property. How many times do you get to eat, sleep repeat in a castle? The common areas are beautiful and well maintained, the staff very helpful. The views are simply breathtaking! The room was clean and well... More

We were here a part of a group and our meals were included, so I can't comment on the value. It doesn't seem to be near anything, but that didn't affect us because our days were planned. The setting is beautiful, our room was lovely, overlooking the countryside. We had two outdoor dinners there that were very good.

However only a partial screen between room and bath/basin and toilet did not have full door so limited privacy.Minibar. Make sure... More

I think it best just to summarise the experience. There are many reviews that go into greater detail. This hotel is not a hotel. It is two restaurants ,one pretty good one for lunch,and one over-priced and not up-to-high-standard for dinner. However, the fact that you are paying hundreds of Euros for a room does not seem to entitle you... More

We spent two nights during the week. The room was nice and spacious. Breakfast was good. If you are arriving in the afternoon, eat before you arrive because the bar closes at 3pm and the restaurant opens at 8pm but you have to make a reservation beforehand.

Just returned from a fantastic 4 night stay. The team at Castell d'Emporda put so much effort into ensuring each guest has a great time. The atmosphere is relaxed, peaceful and friendly. Our room was unexpectedly very large, the bathroom alone was big enough to be a bedroom and had a huge window with views across the region! The pool... More

We stayed one night, which was ok. The welcome was very good. The room was ok. We loved the overall ambiance of the outside areas and the old building. However we were quite disappointed with diner. In terms of price compared to quality and service we found they are definitely slipping. The waitress did not know much about the wines... More

We stayed one for the wedding, which Ken performed. He found the staff extremely accommodating and helpful. The canapés and the food during the meal were great and all gluten-free, except the bread roll. The room was sumptuous and the air con very welcome. Views were stunning from the tower. Unfortunately no time to get into the inviting looking pool.... More

We spent an excellent night in this hotel built around an old castle. Room was large and offered a peaceful view from to large terrace to the landscape the swimming pool and the tower of the castle. A relaxing walk in the garden is a good way to discover this hotel. We furthermore tried the hotel restaurant which is excellent.

After reading previous reviews I really expected to pick fault with this place, but I couldn't. The setting is beautiful, the rooms were fabulous, lunch and dinner were amazing. It has a real relaxing vibe. The pool area was gorgeous, everything very clean (didn't experience anyone reserving loungers with towels and mentioned by previous reviewer). We had a garden room...
