Hotel was recommended to us as a good location for anyone seeking peace and quiet. It's in the heart of the Sierra Gatta so stunning views and a superb base if you want to go and explore, although the town itself seemed to have not much going on - but as we weren't there for the town life, that was not a problem.
The locals call this the "blanket factory" and it is an amazing building that has been beautifully converted by the owners (who also seem to do just about everything else, reception, bar, restaurant) into a hotel. Rooms were basic but very comfortable. No fridge but otherwise no complaints at all. Swimming pool was a nice place to unwind after a day out in the scorching heat.
The owners are some of the friendliest people we have ever met and although English is rarely spoken in this part of Spain, they did their very best to communicate with us whilst our VERY basic Spanish and sign-language had them smiling and helping us along.
The restaurant served some excellent food at a reasonable price, although we thought the menu del dia was probably better value given the similar catering style and portion sizes (big!).
Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing base from which to explore the local area.
