“Romantic getaway on the outskirts of Barcelona, picturesque!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

The design of the hotel is stunning and staff are warm, friendly and very accommodating. We stayed for 2 nights and the view from the hotel overlooks the vineyards, village and mountains -depending on your room.

The food is fantastic - Catalan cuisine prepared using locally sourced ingredients ... served with a twist. The seafood was delicious - the fish with the "rovallones" (local, in season mushrooms) were delicately seasoned, fresh and light. The tuna tartar with olive oil caviar was unique and worked beautifully together. The olive oil was a little intense for me but that is just a matter of preference. My husband loved the caviar ... he's Spanish so that should say it all :) We had every dish paired with a wine from the cellar including sparkling wine (Cava) and the team did a great job with the pairings.

The bread served at the start of the meal could use some work - it might work better if it were toasted and served with the wonderful olive oil (that was used to make the caviar) and some sea salt. Next day's breakfast was the highlight of our day! Perfectly poached, runny eggs with cold cuts, toasted bread, pulpy orange juice (freshly squeezed!) and a sinfully yummy selection of pastries - just say yes to the croissants ... just do it. Last but not least, the beds are super comfy and we slept like babies!

Looking forward to heading there again soon - thanks for a wonderful experience and compliments to the team! On the way out, be sure to grab a bottle of Sant Pau, almost ice wine-like but so much better because it isn't as syrupy.

This hotel was absolutely gorgeous, was on a gorgeous piece of property, and had spectacular rooms. My wife and I were very pleased and we will definitely stay here again. The cost of the hotel is pretty high, but you get free wine and cava in your room and the dinner cost is very low. Also the dinner was one of the best meals I have ever had, so that last point is important. If you are able to stay here I would highly highly recommend it, it will be completely worth your time and money.

Room Tip: There are only 12 rooms in this hotel and I believe 10 of the 12 are the same. Book early

Booked this hotel as it was near the wineries we were visiting and we wanted to stay over in Vilafranca. We were not disappointed.

Firstly the architecture is quite stunning - extremely modern yet still in keeping with the surroundings (think Hobbiton designed by Mies van de Rohe). The rooms have views of the vineyards and are well-appointed with plenty of space and both bath and separate shower (separate again from the loo, which is always a nice touch). As well as the standard hotel mini-bar there is a wine fridge in which you can store any of your purchases from the day. We were touched that this also contained a complementary half bottle of Mas Tinell wine and the same of cava!

We dined in the hotel restaurant which has a fully open kitchen - they do tasting menu experiences so there is also a dining space right next to the kitchen - this is now on our 'to do list'! The food was very good and well-priced as a fixed-price menu with three options per course. Charming service and wine from the Mas Tinell estate was included in the price.
The included breakfast was leisurely and generous.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same apart from the one suite.

Modernist architecture, beautiful rooms, friendly staff, good cava and excellent food (40€ all included for dinner). What else do you need ? A swimming pool maybe... This is the only thing I missed.
Very good stop for a road trip in Spain.

We spent a lovely time in this gorgeous hotel. The room was stunning -- great views of the vineyard, all the loveliest amenities. But it was the small touches that really made for a perfect stay -- a welcome bottle of cava, perfectly chilled, with beautiful glasses and a piece of signature chocolate! The staff could not have been more welcoming and lovely. Spend some time in this lovely region in this phenomenal hotel. A spot not to be missed.

Chef Jaume Balada heads the team at this establishment where you can savour an exquisite gourmet set menu consisting in: Creamy gazpacho with marinated sardine; Grilled scallop with tomato tartar and olive oil caviar; Roasted "roger" (Catalan rockfish) with a salt cod tripe stew and chickpeas; Roasted Penedes typical duck with celeri purée, shallots and pork jowl; Cheese platter with quince paste; "Crema catalana" chef's interpretation; and petit fours... They really go for the extra mile! Original, delicious taste and clever design of plates. Very good matching wines and cavas from Mastinell Cellar. Atmospheric, wonderful and elegant architecture. What else to say?… Price is appropriate and reasonable. Catalan food elevated to the category of Art. Don't miss it!
