Wonderful! Could not have been better. The staff is extremely attentive to all needs and requests. Sublime serenity for a much-needed recharge.

Great tiled floor with underfloor heating!Posted Mar 4, 2013
Pros: The tasteful decoration of the rooms
Cons: Bathroom seemed always to be cold!
Location: Set on the edge of the Sierra D'espuna with wonderful walks and scenery
The hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable throughout out stay. The underfloor heating was marvellous on the tiled floor and came into it's own on returning from a wet walk in the park. It dried or clothes very effectively!

Lovely place, excellent food and great host. Quite hard to find though - we had to ask a local! Shame we didn't have more time to see the surrounding area.

PerfectionPosted Oct 13, 2012
Pros: Total relaxation

Location: Within the Sierra de Espuna National Park...great for hiking, biking wildlife etc
This is a superb hotel on every level. Situated in a small village within the national park with easy access to the park and all it has to offer, great walks wildlife and spectacular scenery. The hotel is actually perfect, small, comfortable fabulous food and great owners and staff. The room was kept beautifully clean. Can't recommend this hotel highly enough..best food I've ever had in Spain..thanks to Andreas for wine recommendations..very good..we will most definitely return.

Little Gem of SpainPosted Mar 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
Fantastic hotel in a lovely national park. Ideal area for walking and nor far (1.5 hours) from Murcia airport. Location is great and the breakfast and evening meals are delicious. Already thinking about our next trip. Small and personal with attentive service.

This place is impressivePosted Oct 7, 2011
Ideally situated in the centre of the Parque D'espuna with two good quality and inexpensive restaurants in the village. The guest house is a traditional farm house expertly and tastfully restored though with modern internal features. The finish is good quality throughout and Andre, the host, who has a little but passable English is unobtrusively attentive. The breakfast of fresh fruits, hams and cheese was supplemented by freshly baked bread and cakes. All in all the attention to detail was exceptional. Will happily return and would recommend this to anyone.

Rusticae Bajo el Cejo - a location to die for!Posted Aug 28, 2011 on Hotels.com
From the moment we arrived at the Bajo el Cejo, we were able to relax. After what had been a somewhat harrowing journey, the immediate friendly and personal attention of Andreas, the owner/manager put us at our ease. From then on relaxation was everything. Located in the sleepy village of El Berro, built into a hillside several thousand feet above Alhama de Murcia in Southern Spain, the Bajo el Celo is idyllic. We only booked one night there but both agreed we could stay a week if we had the time! This is the ultimate rural chill - with quality - the meal we had in the evening was superb - no choice - only a fixed menu but beautiful. And if that's not to your liking then there are three other restaurants in the village. The rooms too, though simple had all mod cons including a/c and a balcony view of the surrounding hills. They also all contain guides to the other Rusticae across Spain - individual guest houses with character - we hope to try some others! A great place to go walking - several suggested routes are available. But a warning - this is NOT the place to go to if you want raving night life and the hustle and bustle of city centre restaurants!! However, if you just wanted a place to relax like us - then it's ideal - with spectacular views thrown in for good measure. Thanks Andreas for genuine hospitality!

The perfect breakPosted Aug 8, 2011 on Hotels.com
My partner (irish) and me (spanish) had a fantastic break in this hotel. The hotel has been very nicely done, looking after every detail. The peace and harmony of the place was exactly what we were looking for. The dinners and breakfasts were great, well done. We both fully recommend this place.

Wonderful experiencePosted Jun 25, 2011
Booked this hotel after reading your reviews and am so glad we did.The meal we ate on the terrace with the most fantastic views was superb. It was all locally produced and the service top class. We had 5 courses ending up with cactus sorbet which was deicious.30 euros each but worth it. The village had at least 3 other places to eat so we tried some oh them as well and they were really good also. The small swimming pool was a god send as it was very hot and enough sun beds to keep us happy. The mountain road going up was very steep and windy but comming down we were told the other road alot less so and I was alot happier. We would definately return
