“Beautiful location by the lake”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

We stayed at the hotel for a week when on a rowing training camp. The hotel is right next to the lake and our room was in front with a balcony with good views.

The hotel is a bit faded and needs some repairs and rennovation and in truth should be regarded as a 3-star rather than a 4-star. The bedroom are OK but the carpets, furniture and bathrooms could do with some updating.

The public areas are spacious and there is a nice swimming pool. There is a new restaurant with good, modern food but the menu does not change and after a week you can do with a change (its also no ideal for hungary rowers). There is a friendly bar that does sandwiches at lunchtime. The staff were all friendly and hard working and everything was spotless.

Its still the best hotel in Banyoles and I would stay again. Its about a 10 minute walk to the historic town centre and if you are there for the rowing its only a 5min walk to the boathouse.

This hotel was once a lovely new 4-star hotel on the shore of beautiful Banyoles Lake. These days the location is as attractive as ever, but the hotel is badly in need of attention and it is not of 4-star standard. Our room on the 3rd floor had views through the trees to the lake, a nice little balcony with a door that would not lock, a tiny tiny TV (impossible to read the football scores), 2 twin beds (they don´t do doubles), an old nearly threadbare carpet, a bathroom clad in attractive polished stone but with one bulb not working, a few cheap shampoo sachets, and a shower glass panel in need of attention. We had half board (125 euros - not cheap but it was a Saturday night) and the food was pretty good. The breakfast had the authentic feel of "deep Catalonia": a plethora of cooked cold sausages dangling from metal hooks (cut them yourself), various different cheeses, optional red wine, and we enjoyed a rare sighting of a hotel guest drinking Voll Damm for breakfast - just the business to set you up for the day. Me...well I´m sorry but I went for a mint tea. The only reason for staying here really is the fact that you walk straight out on to the lakeshore. There is a pleasant 8km walk around the lake to be enjoyed, and an even better walk up to Puig Clara (follow the signs for Route 3 which starts from the lovely Romanesque church on the SW corner of the lake). In the immediate vicinity of the hotel are a few bars and restaurants (try the Chinese restaurant if you fancy a change: it was really rather good). The ambience is old fashioned and sleepy, but it is all peaceful, the air is unpolluted, and the west side of the lake remarkably free from urban development. The deeply verdant countryside around here is especialy lovely in spring.
