"Beautiful hotel and excellent food. The restaraunt is in the equivalent of 'the Good Food guide' - a wide range of menus all excellent. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Having said that we were the only guests! The manager, Argentina, was helpful in terms of local places of interest and arranged a day trip into the Atlas."
