Venue is beautiful, food is good (wouldn’t expect less in Avila) and service was surprisingly fast and attentive (used to be very slow and tedious in the past). Huevos de corral trufados is a must.
Keep the good work!

Friendly staff and good value "Menu del Dia" at €25. Three courses of local dishes with generous portion sizes and unlimited house wine (surprisingly good).

Set in an attractive covered courtyard the 17th century architecture is a great setting and a lovely surprise.

Let me start by saying the hotel has an excellent location. Our room (229) was large and well appointed but like a sauna. The individually controlled air conditioning did not work so it was always hot and stuffy. When we complained to reception they advised it was not switched on in the bedrooms and would not be so until peak summer! How can it be advised as a facility and switched off?!!! It was a relief to get out of the room and into the public areas where it was switched on. We asked for a fan, one never arrived. Our other gripe was the appalling breakfast buffet- 9.90 per person for very little choice. Very little selection available for a 4 star property. Only 3 cereals available- stale cornflakes, coco pops and wheatflakes only. The coffee out of the machine was awful. The only juice available was orange so we had to drink water! Great selection of chocolate cakes and donuts for breakfast if your 10 years of age but not if your 50. Strawberry jam available in abundance but very little else in the jam/honey/conserve department . Poor selection of hot food. We did speak to reception both about the hot room and the buffet breakfast and we also put our comments in writing on day 2. These were neither acknowledged or acted upon. Clearly our 3 night booking was insignificant.

My meal was outstanding, probably the best since we left Canada for Spain and Portugal 28 days ago. I had the sirloin with the pistachio sauce and my husband had the menu del dia. He had so much food that he could not eat it all. It came with a full bottle of wine. The restaurant was full of Spaniards, usually a very good sign if the locals eat here. Not an English speaking tourist in sight but our exceptional waiter spoke English and we were given a menu in English. We wandered the old town looking for a restaurant and ended up at our hotel having an outstanding experience. The waiters were all very professional.

We could not believe the level of service. The head waiter went out of his way to ensure we had a lovely meal. He was amazing. He seemed to know how we wanted our steak cooked, what dessert we would choose. A true professional. Wonderful surroundings and atmosphere.
