we stayed here with a couple of friends and really liked the place. The hotel is set in the walls of the small village and is very well looked after and cared for. There is a well/baths/spa for relaxing which we made great use of, a lovely interior patio for some nice wine and the area is truly nice for...

Lovely old building, impeccably furnished, beautiful paintings, spotlessly clean, exquisite bedroom with spacious ensuite bathroom and "L'Occitane" toiletries - Lush! Our hostess Silica was a little reserved to start with but we soon had her smiling and she looked after us so well - even treated us to a half bottle of cava while we were in the Spa! Thank...

We stayed here during a christmas-new year visit to the region and it was fabulous. The room was interesting and lovely, the bathroom fabulous. We had sole use of the spa area - hot pool, cool pool, rest area, massage table - with gin and tonic provided by our hostess. The village is sweet, the walking fantastic and amazingly only...

There is no denying this a fantastic rural getaway hotel in the middle of the orchard mountains of Vall de Gallinera. The place is done up really well, nice decoration, beautiful house, and an amazing hidden treasure under it... an amazing spa made up from the old water well that the house used to have! It would be even greater...

We stayed for 2 nights. The Hotel is placed in a very rural environment in between Valencian Mountains. It has a indoor hand-made jacuzzi. The stay was not cheap but we enjoyed it so much that we can say it worth its price. Highly recommended.

Spain is full of small and intersting hotels, and my wife and I have stayed at many of them; but this one stands out from the crowd. Our welcome was friendly and the staff very accomodating (we were even taken personally to our restaurant of choice when we had difficulty locating it in the narrow lanes of Baniali). The 7...

The hotel and it's setting is beautiful, the family who own and run the hotel were so hospitable and made my family & I very, very welcome and spoilt us for the whole weekend. The hotel has everything you would want from that special break away, gorgeous setting, beautiful decor, a relaxing atmosphere and stunning views. The rooms spoil you...

Hidden away in Beniali, in Val de Gallinera, north of Alicante is the most wonderful secret hotel. A haven of tranquility, this "tardis" is so interesting and beautiful filled with fabulous artefacts, paintings and delightful inner courtyard rooms, with a spa beneath the hotel down candlelit steps ... a darkened pool and relaxing rooms ... showers made from very old...

“We had the Beniali room which was beautiful - but you have to be aware it has low beamed ceilings - easy to bang one's head - so not advisable for very tall people!”
