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).

Guest comments

'We were unlucky with the weather during our stay in Mallorca, with snow, rain and freezing winds but the wood fire at Ca'n Reus did help keep us warm in the evenings. Our room was fairly small with windows looking over narrow streets to walls opposite. It had a fan heater/ac unit which helped, but the radiators were not working. The bathroom was adequate; there was plenty of hot water. Breakfasts were excellent with delicious fresh orange juice and coffee. There was an enormous selection of food at the buffet table which varied daily - eggs of various descriptions, meats, cheese, yoghurt, fresh and dried fruit and there was always plenty for everyone though if you wanted something hot it was advisable to be there in good time. The staff were friendly and helpful. ' - S P - February, 2013
'A gem on a quiet street near the square of the small mountain village. You are greeted almost as a welcome house guest. Sue and Nick Guthrie are both working journalists, yet with friends and family helping are devoted to the comfort of their clients. This former residence of an orange merchant has a magnificent marble portal. The front door opens to the cool reception with oranges and lemons below ancestral portraits and family photographs. A small swimming pool is naturally solar heated so we were able to bathe in March when air temperatures reached a heavenly 22°. Our room was indeed rural, extending into an orchard garden below a spacious terrace. It was comfortable, well-lit; the bathroom amusingly furbished with fan bath and twin basins formed from a cattle manger. Other rooms have superb views over the mountains. In the dining room are long tables with pretty napery. Guests can choose whether to chat or be quietly reserved. The Guthries regularly offer the extra of a congenial dinner. There’s huge choice at the delicious breakfast buffet; it could include local specialities like ensaïmades (pastries), and tortillas. Superb eggs and ham; perfect orange juice. A picnic lunch is offered for hikers and touring parties. ' - Cathy Brooks-Baker - March, 2011
