We stayed at the Fort 3-5 May 2014. I first visited "Fort Concepcion" more than 30 years ago when it was still a weed-strewn ruin on a windswept ridge replete with the ghosts of the British and Allied soldiers of the Light Division who lived there in 1810. I must admit I was somewhat dismayed when I heard that a hotel was being built but the architects have done a marvellous job which is very sympathetic to the location and minimally invasive on the original structure. The standard of facilities was excellent; the food and wine was first-rate (and reasonably priced) and staff were charming and helpful. Very highly recommended - whether you're a history buff or not.
