“Perfect with young children, decent enough without”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Situated just outside the medieval village of Cardona, on the opposite hill to the Parador. Whilst it offers similarly stunning views, this hotel is a very different proposition - a rural 3-star hotel aimed squarely at families with young children, who I imagine might find most other "rural hotels" a bit stuffy and formal. The accommodation is by no means luxurious, but perfectly clean and practical. As we were near enough the only guests without children, the restaurant was a bit too canteen-like for our liking (very brightly lit with wipe-clean surfaces and food was a very family-orientated buffet); ideal if you don't want to stress over whether your toddler is going to make a mess or too much noise, but definitely not the setting for a romantic dinner.

The families staying here seemed all very happy. For couples looking for a romantic weekend, I would probably suggest looking elsewhere; however even for those travelling without children, the hotel makes a perfectly decent base from which to explore the pretty town of Cardona and the surrounding area, and it is about half the price of the Parador. Just be aware that you will most likely be outnumbered by toddlers, and perhaps head into Cardona for dinner rather than having half board in the hotel.

very simple rooms. The computer doesn´t work. The staff not helpful or friendly at all. Food very mediocre. Long distance from the parking place to the reception and then long distance to the rooms. However, the hotel has an amazing view.

It's not a cheap hotel, but it's worth every nickel. Excellent for kids, especially during weekends or summer, as they have multiple activities for them, no matter their age. Pool, tiny farm, donkey, multiple chairs for kids at the restaurant, etc. It's been especially designed for young families with children.
