What a wonderful, special property in a beautiful town in the Rioja region. We were able to stroll to wineries and restaurants. We were tempted to have dinner at the castle but there were so many outstanding options in the town, we didn't eat dinner there, only breakfast, which was excellent.
This was by far our favorite lodging in Spain and we stayed in 6 different hotels, some five star. I have paid several hundred dollars to stay at a similar castle in Italy. Javier was wonderful attending to our needs and running our luggage up and down the stairs for us! He struggled a bit with his English and our Spanish was much worse, but somehow we figured things out and his hospitality came through. He set us up with a wonderful winery tour on the evening of our arrival after most tours had ended.
Loved the huge tile bathroom and the decor of the room. Views from room and bath were lovely.
My one complaint.....I found the bed extremely uncomfortable and I am not one to complain about beds.....the mattress was really soft and I woke in the middle of the night with a back ache..,.so much so,I had to move to the sofa in the room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A castle from the begining of the 19th century and restored in 1996. It has ten rooms and each one is named after an influential person of Laguardia and the Kingdom of Navarra. The decoration of the castle is an example of good taste and sobriety, not missing the fine elegance that enraptures visitors, who come here to spend their time in this idyllic and harmounious paradise with beautiful views full of the local colour. There are three very old function rooms decorated with Arabian ceramics and handcrafted coffered ceiling from the beginning of the 19th century worthy of note. Your expectations to enjoy the extensive menu of traditional dishes from the Basque and La Rioja cuisine will come true. The symphony of light from these handcrafted rooms will leave you with a feeling of tranquility and appreciation of art. ... more less
