As this hotel is just 2 hours drive from where we live, we could hardly refuse to take advantage of their special offer of dinner, bed & breakfast for two people for just €65. The building is impressive and retains the aura and many of the original features of the monastery it once was. As an hotel, it succeeds in being both comfortable and clean, with decent enough service offered from the reception through to the restaurant. Don't expect much English to be spoken and you won't be disappointed, although the Receptionist more than managed, as might be expected. The long, narrow pool is in a sunny spot at the back of the hotel - unusually, accessed through a well-kept kitchen garden - and we spent a delightful couple of hours relaxing and swimming before dinner. The evening meal was served 'tapas' style, which meant there was no menu to choose from - which for a large party of 12 was probably a blessing in disguise - and the food quality was perfectly acceptable, but not exceptional. Breakfast was of a similar standard, with the usual choice of cereals, breads, cheese, cold meats and fruit - althought the freshly squeezed orange juice was divine! Overall, there were no complaints from us about the general standard of the hotel, the service or, least of all, the excellent value for money we enjoyed. However, while drinks could be ordered before and during dinner, there was no hotel bar as such, which for us - and many others like us - is something to be enjoyed as part of a weekend treat. The nearest bar in the village was a mere 100m from the front door of the hotel and was lively, with a warm welcome, decent service and good value for the village location.
