We booked a family room for three and were pleasantly surprised to find we had a suite of two bedrooms and two bathrooms between us. We were made really welcome by the proprietor and greatly appreciated his customer focus. This place is really good value for money. We booked via Expedia and that worked out well administratively. Easy car journey from the ferry port at Bilbao leaving the ferry at about 8.00 am we arrived mid afternoon.
Magnificent location with splendid views of the Odessa peaks, a short walk for the bus that now takes people up to the park. Safe parking for guests, delightful friendly welcome and a good standard altogether. the WIFI worked well and simply with a mobile device and the breakfast was included and very comprehensive.
Hotel lacked an evening sitting in the restaurant, but there was plenty of eateries elsewhere in the village at reasonable cost, although the restaurants in Torla don't take cards which was a shame as our limited supply of euros in cash dwindled quite quickly as a result. The hotel itself takes VISA. Meals could be had in the village 500 meters away for 15 euros a head including wine.
Hotel wise the rooms are decorated in an older style and the bathrooms although functional and clean probably need a refurbishment to cater for some more discerning travellers; plumbing and pipes a bit old looking and not modern granite and chrome. The room style is a bit "DIY"; but clean nevertheless and quite spacious. You have to remember this is rural Spain and manage expectations accordingly.
The private terrace leading from the room had a tatty bitumen floor to it but it was OK; although it did overlook some allotments and a brood of chickens; but it was somewhere private to sit out and have a beer in the evening and had its own rustic charm, so we were quiet content on this aspect. At the end of the day you get what you pay for and we were quite happy.
We stayed two nights and will be back again on another trip sometime I am sure.
