Good Hotel Guide Review
In an attractive village, with cobbled streets and tiled rooftops, surrounded by orange and lemon groves, this 300-year-old house has been run since 2003 as a small rural hotel Sue and Nick Guthrie, both television journalists. They aim for a peaceful, informal atmosphere, and pride themselves on their breakfast, a generous buffet including locally produced tarts, pastries, fruit and jams. Once a week, the Guthries serve a communal no-choice dinner, alfresco in summer. ‘Delicious gazpacho; excellent barbecued chicken; a huge roll of goat’s cheese; wonderful local pastries’ were enjoyed, washed down by Mallorcan wines. At night, the public areas are charmingly lit by candles, on walls, in shallow pools on the floor, and on the stairs. The bedrooms, each named after a mountain, are simple (no CD-player, minibar or TV) and pretty. The most appealing rooms face the spectacular views over the Tramuntana mountain range, others overlook a village street. There are old wooden or iron bedheads, capacious armoires, wooden beams, flagged floors and potted plants. In the small garden, the small swimming pool is surrounded by bougainvillaea, oleanders and loungers. ‘Sue is a kind hostess,’ say recent visitors ‘full of local knowledge.’ An enthusiastic walker, she will provide directions, and sometimes acts as a guide. She also gives advice about the local restaurants (there are three good ones in the village).
