“NICE HOTEL AND ROOM - SHAME ABOUT THE RESTAURANT”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

Obviously soaked in history with lots of character we enjoyed the size, cleanliness and fiitings in our excellent bedroom.

We may just have been unlucky, but our whole experience was spoiled by the lack of service in the restaurant.

During our three night stay there was no evidence of proper management in this area. I cannot believe that our experience was typical and suspect that managers may have been on leave or similar.

We accept that our Spanish is very limited (to say the least) but this often adds to the pleasure of staying in rural Spain and has provided many happy memories.

Unfortunately of the four hotels we stayed at during this visit, the Hostal Sport staff seemed the least prepared to help with our obvious language limitations.

This could and should be a frist class hotel - were we just unluicky?

Room Tip: Our room overlooking the large "garden" area to the rear was free of traffic noise.

Hi John,

Firsty of all, we would like to thank you your words about our hotel. Just a few words of gratitude for your review, which we think will help us to improve our service in the restaurant and organise better our staff to attend our guests. We will check what could have happened in order to be able to avoid repeating this sort of mistakes in the future. Otherwise, we are happy to see that you enjoyed the room. We also hope that you had a good stay discovering our wine producer area.
I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
Hope to see you soon in our hotel,
thanks and best regards,
Marta Domenech

The room was tiny with a non-functioning hand held shower extension, thin walls and a very small balcony. There are very few hotel options if you want to visit Priorat and Montsant wineries. This hotel is serviceable with a very convenient location and very gracious owners/staff. What we especially ended up liking was the proximity to El Celler de l'Aspic. We are "foodies" and consider our meal at this restaurant to be one of our top dining experiences ever.

This is a lovely hotel in a very quaint town. The rooms have everything you might need and the bathrooms are quite spacious. King-sized beds are two mattresses pushed together, but that's pretty much standard throughout Europe. The balcony was quite small, but there is a communal outdoor patio that does the trick. The walls are a little thin and you can definitely hear conversations in adjacent rooms, as well as doors opening and closing. Earplugs are a good idea if this bothers you. There is a restaurant attached and the service there is great. On several occasions, I woke up quite late and the kitchen staff were very nice in preparing me whatever kind of breakfast I wanted upon request. The owner also goes above and beyond - I needed an adapter to charge my camera battery and when I asked if the hotel had one I could borrow, she promptly went to her own home and got me her personal one to use. I would definitely recommend this hotel, though you do need a car to stay here as you will want to venture outside Falset.

Situated in the heart of the town of Falset, this hotel is the perfect base for winery visits to Priorat and Montsant - there is no other place to stay. Marta, the charming owner, could not be more helpful. When I phoned her to tell her I had left my mobile phone in a local restaurant she sent a staff member immediately to retrieve it and promised to post it to Ireland! Luckily the bus we were travelling on passed the hotel later that day and I collected it from reception. Food in the restaurant is hearty, filling and delicious. Room No. 7 offered a balcony, fluffy bathrobes and tranquility with bottled water by the bed. Could ask no more of a hotel. This is a hard act to follow. Hope I return again before too long.

The personal service here was exceptional. Everyone was warm, friendly, accommodating and helpful. We called downstairs at 9pm to see if there was a place nearby where we could purchase a bottle of water, or if the restaurant was still open, and someone hand delivered a bottle of water to us.

In the morning, we were rushing out, because we were late for a reservation at the winery, and the owner would not let us leave without having something to eat. He insisted that everything was ready-- which it was. And then he proceeded to make us eggs and bacon, fresh squeezed orange juice, and cafe con leche.

The location is in central Falset and near to restaurants, bars and some shopping. Very cute town.

Although our room was a little small (had to squeeze in two suitcases), the room was very comfortable, and the service more than made up for room size.

I would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it.
