“Shabby Chic.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

With more attention to detail, this hotel could be delightful.
More drawer-space in the bedrooms, a plentiful supply of HOT (rather than just-warm) water, repairs to the pool (empty all season because of leaks) and more generous portions for meals would remove the impression that the owner is penny-pinching.
Their set dinner at 29.50 Euros was the most expensive we came across in Viladrau or in similar class eateries on the Costa Brava, & the included wine worked out at one tiny glass each! The menu is the same every night, and some of the dishes on it were never available. Chef Salvador is no longer there, I think.
Plus points: the staff were helpful & very hard-working, and the views are lovely.

Room Tip: Room 4 is the only one with a balcony. Though it looks onto the road through Viladrau, we weren'...

Es evidente comparando su opinión con la anterior en el tiempo(una semana antes), que los problemas y fallos mostrados, eran los mismos. Seguimos remitiendonos a las opiniones siguientes para poder ver que esos errores, que lamentamos haber cometido con ustedes, ya han sido corregidos.
También hemos regulado de forma más eficiente la caldera del agua caliente y esta fluye sin ninguna pérdida de caudal a 60°.
Usted hace referencia a que el menú es idéntico cada noche. Eso que usted afirma no era cierto durante su estancia, ni antes, ni después. A todos nuestros huéspedes se les entrega la carta que evidentemente no se cambia a diario, ni semanalmente tampoco. La modificamos por temporada o por la oferta de producto de los mercados locales.
Actualmente disponemos de un menú a 15.50€ y el precio medio de la carta es de 19.00€. Hemos hecho caso de las sugerencias de nuestros huéspedes para adaptarnos a sus gustos y necesidades.

The hotel is rather basic, with not much storage space if staying for more than a few days. TV had no English speaking channels, and the pool was empty, though it was still August/September.
We thought the food was good, but portions were very small and overpriced. Meals in the village were cheaper and better.Breakfast was included, but again was fairly mean,e.g one croissant each, one slice of bread /toast, a little cold meat,one pat of butter, not exactly generous though enough for us as we are not breakfast fans. I think a hungry family might have been a bit disappointed. The owners were very nice people and very helpful. There was free secure parking, in fact we could not get out the morning we left as the car park was locked and was not opened until 8.00am.

Room Tip: rooms at the back overlooking the garden are quieter

Cuando uno toma las riendas de un negocio a título individual, muchas veces lo hace poniendo todo lo que dispone sobre la mesa. Este ha sido mi caso y los recursos limitados no me permitieron reparar todos los desperfectos heredados. Nuestro precioso estanque-piscina lo tenemos en perfectas condicones para el baño desde junio de 2013.
En lo referente a los desayunos y comidas en general les remitimos a las opiniones mas recientes que dan fe de nuestros esfuerzos por corregir los errores cometidos anteriormente.
Por último les diremos que la puerta del aparcamiento ya puede ser abierta por los clientes del hotel cuando así lo desean, muchas gracias.

We didn't stay at the hotel, but were fortunate to eat dinner there, having discovered it by asking people in town to recommend a restaurant. What an amazing discovery.

Salvador takes such pride in his establishment AND his cooking. We started with a glass of cava in the garden, then moved on to the six course 'surprise' tasting menu in the restaurant. Having explained our differing tastes to him, he then produced six courses (plus amuse bouches) of the highest quality and creativity. It is so refreshing to find such different, gourmet food in a small town in the mountains - almost as surprising was how low the bill was - such good value considering it included wine, water, coffee etc., not to mention fabulous service.

Do eat here - you will not be disappointed. The hotel looked lovely, and next time we will be staying here and looking forward to another wonderful meal.

We stayed at the Xalet la Coromina for one night in Sep 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a charming little room looking onto the hotel's garden and were treated to what must be one of the best meals we ever had by chef Salvador. I can highly recommend this place and hope to be able to return one day.

We live near the Montseny region and travel all over looking for the best restaurants.
Together with Torre Simon in Tona this has to be our favourite. Salvador is a very talented chef and a warm and generous host. Despite the modest price of 25 euro, his tasting menu reminds me of what flavoursome food tastes like - try the lentils with foie or the delightful salad of barat al escabeche.
Our meal here was a welcome change from the too-often bland and repetitive menus found throughout rural catalonia.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: let Salvador recommend what is fresh that day
