We stayed here when the feria was in town. The owner kindly rang us after we had booked on the internet to inform us that the feria was on and it would be noisy - he offered to find us alternative accommodation if we preferred to stay somewhere quieter - which was very considerate. In the event we did not find it too noisy and we really enjoyed being in town and seeing the feria, including the farming show where we sampled local cheese and wine.
We stayed in the tiny room with glass bricks separating the bathroom. It was a very small room,but very clean. I think we booked the last available room as I looked in some of the other rooms and they were much larger.
Breakfast was simple and very spanish, there was no choice, but we felt this was part of the real spanish experience.
We paid a reasonable price and so were happy with what we got for the price.

The hotel itself is charming with wonderful views from the balcony. The room we stayed in was quite small (incl. the bed) but clean. The bathroom was divided by glass bricks so perhaps if you are in early stages of your relationship this could be a problem. There is no air-conditioning in the room which made sleeping difficult (we stayed in August).
We were excited about eating at the hotel after reading such good reviews from the previous guests. Unfortunately, we did not share the same views. The food was ok but we expected more than just shop bought chips with our main meal. We thought we would still give the dessert a go but should have not bothered as the stodgy souffle and greek yogurt with fig did not lift the mood. The price of the meal was well above the local average.
The next morning we sat down and waited for our breakfast to arrive as there was no choice given. We received a dry slice of bread, a boiled egg (which was hardly boiled), three thin slices of tomato, a pot of greek yogurt, a mouthful of cooked pork and a coffee. We didn't bother with breakfast again.
After this dining experience, the next evening we ate in another local restaurant and the food was amazing for half the price.
Perhaps we were just unlucky and the chef was on holiday during our stay.

We arrived in the afternoon and spent hours on the patio eating tapas/treats from town and enjoying the view. After 8pm, Paco (the owner) brought out some very unique soups and excellent steaks. The next morning, we had the house breakfast (great!) and took a dip in the local hot spring a couple miles away before checking out to head to the coast. We all enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Paco is a very gracious host; he seemed to take pleasure from our enjoyment of his establishment and food. The artwork in the dining area and the landscaping in the patio area is really exceptional. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. I felt slightly guilty that we did not spend more time in town...

Room Tip: We chose the family room. NOTE: It is 2 separate chambers divided by a set of curtained french doors...

A very lovely place to stay. We stayed here as part of a Cycling Country tour. The room was beautifully decorated and clean. Paco and Lola (the owners) were very kind and friendly. The patio out back had lovely views and was a great place to spend the afternoon relaxing. We also ate dinner here; the food was superb and the desserts amazing! We can't wait to come back!

This review is for the restaurant as I did not stay at the hotel. The restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of El Amparo bed and breakfast and turned out to be one of the better meals we had in Spain. I had asparagus soup made with crushed almonds. The combination seemed a little strange to me but it was delicious. My main course was cod in a tomato sauce and vegetables. I was less impressed with this dish but it was still pretty good. Dessert was profiteroles and they were just ok. Very unremarkable. Overall the food was decent especially compared with the many lousy meals I had in southern Spain. It is pricey though so be prepared for that.

We loved our visit here. The fish we ate was beautifully fresh and superbly cooked. The welcome was as warm as the weather - you really feel that you are in authentic Spain. We didn't stay the night, but we would do next time. Indeed, we'd go out of our way to get there. Many many thanks!

La Sequiriya was recommended to us by a family member, and so after a hectic week on the coast we decided to have a few days peace inland and so booked for a three night stay at this charming and friendly hotel.
We were treated to a very warm welcome by Lola on arrival - the rooms are delightful, and have been carefully restored maintaining character but with all home comforts.
We ate in the small dining room the first evening, and were introduced to Paco who is Lola's husband (Lola and Paco own the hotel - Lola cooks, whilst Paco serves the food) - he is such an entertaining man, and although he only speaks a little english and I only speak a little spanish we soon made overselves understood and he had us laughing in no time.
The quality of the food in the hotel is very good, and home cooked (try the almond and asparagus soup!) - and the breakfasts are authentic and a delight.
Paco carefully selects his favourite flamenco tunes on the stereo and you can hear him clapping now and again in time to the music (you'll have probably read he is a retired flamenco "cantanda" who has travelled the world during his career (see youtube Paco Moyana). Alhama is a charming little town, and all of the people we came across were very friendly and I get the sense that they are delighted to have tourists visit - the vast price differences in food and drink between Alhama and places on the coast also make this an attractive destination for those wishing to get "off the beaten track" a little.
We had a few drinks and tapa in El Tigre, and also at Bar Ainhoa (just down the hill from La Seguiriya near the tourist information office) - extremely good value and friendly owner!
We will return to Alhama, and will definitely stay at La Seguiriya!
Thank you Paco and Lola!
