We are so pleased we chose the Castillo el Collado as our home when we were on a wine tour in Rioja.
The hotel has been with the same family for 65 years and is now run by Señor Javier Acillona. We were given a warm welcome and taken to our room La Fabula (the Fable in English) which was on the first floor at the front of the house with a tiny balcony.
Senor Acillona was very helpful in his recommendations of bodegas to visit and telephoned ahead to make an appointment for us as is the way in this area although we did drop in on a couple of others, not for the tour, but for tasting and buying.
Sadly we were only there for two nights, but enjoyed breakfast and dinner on both days. The clams as an appetiser, were excellent. There is a terrace just outside the restaurant where you can take your meals if you wish.
There is no car park at the hotel, but you can drop off which is what we did with our wine rather than leaving it in the car, just a couple of flight of stairs down to the edge of town.
We can't recommend Hotel Collada highly enough for an intimate break in this beautiful town.
- 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
