If your in this neck of the woods and you need some peace and some TLC to charge your batteries then this is the place. We've been on the road for a month with a 3month old child and just needed some time out in comfort. Great staff, comfortable hotel, from 65 euros up to 140 odd euros for the best rooms. A small hotel with a fabulous restaurant. We decided to stay in and feast for both our nights here. Not cheap, but worth every penny, The food quality is 1st class and presentation superb, the tastes, just wonderful. A wine list that one can read and is very extensive. If you compare what you can pay out & about on rubbish food in the area, then it's good value for the quality and taste. Wonderful. Good sized rooms, lovely pool and view from the back of the hotel to watch the sunset and have a beer or a nice glass of vino, Would be great with a loved one. Wednesday nights until mid September is BBQ night, but again this is fine dining, but at 28 euros for 2 great courses you can't go wrong. Two of the best meals I've had in Europe. Finding the place is another matter so have a good map. 15mins from Collioure or 7mins from Ageles sur la mer. The food alone is worth the stay or if your in the area just come for a meal at sunset.

A quiet, very elegantly equipped small hotel with a first class restaurant and an interesting wine list. The combination (and the pool) iare delightful. The staff were unobtrusive but professional - just right. Madame is a perfect host.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks in june and we really enjoyed every minutem of our stay. The hotel is cosy, clean and have a good location. The restaurant is really good and the prices are reasonable compared to the very high quality. There is a nice and quiet garden with a good swimming pool. You only have to be aware of it is not possible to buy anything at lunchtime but you can walk to the village within 10 minutes.

A tastefully decorated hotel in a peaceful location, but not particularly easy to find - even for my satnav - or convenient for the town. This would be alright if the hotel offered a bar and reasonably priced meals but the restaurant was more for the special occasion - very good food - but expensive if using for 2 or 3 nights.
Owing to a change of dates there was only a suite available to us. Plenty of space but why no bath and so sparsely furnished? For example no dressing table. If you want a view of the mountains as mentioned elsewhere then the back of the hotel is not a good substitute. A small point perhaps, but given the number of British and other foreigners a TV channel in English could perhaps be provided.
The hotel is well placed for attractive places such as Ceret and Collioure but gives the impression once there of being a little isolated and perhaps taking advantage of no competition for eating and drinking in the immediate area.

My husband and I live in Barcelona and fancied a few nights away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and we certainly found that here. The garden is small but beautiful as is the pool, and is just like the pictures on the website. We opted for a Privilige room, slightly more expensive than the others but found this to be a misnomer. The decor was very drab and the bedspread reminiscent of the '60s, however the bed was very comfortable and the room clinically clean(big plus).Maybe it's just France but we found the food and beverage here expensive compared with Barcelona. For example, at most we pay Euro 1.40 for a coffee, here it is Euro 4. Breakfast at Euro 11 represented poor value as did the evening meal menu, which was the same for 2 of our 3 night stay. We enjoy good food and wine and don't mind paying for it but here we felt basically ripped off. Also the attitude of the owners was 'cool' to quote a previous reviewer. We were not asked once whether or not we were enjoying our stay or was everything to our liking. Nice place, fantastic waiting staff but a bit more welcoming hospitality please for the paying guests!!

We stayed for two nights at the hotel with our two young children. The connecting rooms were extremely spacious, with lovely views over the countryside. I loved the furniture and the bathroom. The hotel is clean and spacious, with a very useful lift with young children. We felt very welcome by the staff, and enjoyed great service by the pool. The restaurant is outstanding, and the food is exquisite : we really recommend it. The owner also has an extensive wine collection, so if you are a connoisseur, or would like to know more about wine, you should ask !

Since 2006, my husband, 6 year old son and I have stayed at the Auberge, on several occasions. We have stayed for a nine night summer break, long weekends, even the odd short break for just the two of us. The Auberge is breath-takingly beautiful; original and charming externally, restored to the highest contemporary standards internally. The rooms and bathrooms are immaculate. With stunning views of the Albères, a gorgeous swimmimg pool to dine beside, whether that be breakfast or a heavenly evening meal and I think you would be hard pushed to beat what the Auberge has to offer. The owners are both exceptionally kind and warm hearted whilst at the same time keen to respect your privacy. Clearly, they have both worked very hard to turn the Auberge and it's restaurant into what it has become; very well known and very well respected. I have spoken to many other guests who also return year after year. In truth, I would love to keep this little diamond to myself but I can't - it wouldn't be fair. Especially in light of some recent comments. My family and I, and many other guests we have spoken to absolutely love the Auberge du Roua and if you enjoy spoiling yourself then so will you.
