What We Love

  • A rural location surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, but it’s just 12 miles from Granada and a 30-minute drive from the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains
  • The haute cuisine restaurant, which serves a classy, innovative Mediterranean menu
  • Views of the countryside and snow-covered mountains
  • Rooms are light and spacious, with hardwood floors and oversize windows
  • Informative tours of the wine cellars and sommelier courses

What To Know

  • There is a two-night min for Triple and Hacienda Superior rooms
  • Wine tours cost about $13 (€10) and take place Monday through Saturday, while sommelier courses cost about $32 (€25) (advance booking is essential)
  • The outdoor pool closes during winter
  • You’ll need a car to explore the area
  • Not a destination for party animals; the evening scene here is low-key
  • Easy to miss from the main road
  • Better suited to wine lovers and couples than young families
  • Around a two-hour drive from Malaga Airport

Overview

The Review

Hotel Señorio de Nevada is a charming balance of the timeless and the contemporary. The views are of ancient vineyards and the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains in the distance, but the hotel is a model of uber-efficient modernity, with minimalist interior and exterior design, and all the gadgets of 21st-century living.

The 52-acre vineyard that gave the hotel its name, and which produces the award-winning wine made on-site, remains the clear focus. Informative tours, taking in the vines and the cellars, show visitors just how the humble grape becomes the drink of the gods. Being a mere mortal, I generally enjoyed the tasting part best, and for those who really want to polish their sommelier skills, several courses are offered, in English and Spanish (advance booking is essential).

Natural light pours in through the oversize windows, and artificial light comes from high-style lamps. Brown and robin’s egg–blue armchairs and sofas are jauntily positioned next to coffee tables with tall vases and posh lifestyle magazines. The open-plan bedrooms and suites are equally fresh-faced. With huge beds (I’m tall, and they felt pleasingly proportioned even to me), top-quality linens, throws and towels, plus plasma TVs and recessed lighting, the rooms effortlessly combine home comforts and art gallery sophistication.

But for me this hotel is all about drinking in the view of the Iberian countryside, unchanged for centuries, up toward the Sierra Nevada mountain range, which pierces the huge blue skies. Of course, it’s also about drinking in the wine. Indeed, both — the vista and the vino — always make me merry at Hotel Señorio de Nevada.

Several days in a big and cosy room with views over the vinards. Clean and with tons of light. Very nice wines and cheap tasting. Only breakfast may improve in terms of quality products. Totally recommendable!

A a short break with the family
Reviewed 2 months ago

Our son and daughter in law who live in Spain, found this beautiful hotel in June 2018. They have now brought us here for a short break and it is everything they described to us. Absolutely fabulous hotel and grounds. The food is beyond amazing and the staff are very helpful, polite and speak english well enough to help those of us who only speak a tiny bit of Spanish. Fortunately our family speak fluent spanish which had made the trip even better. Can thoroughly recommend this lovely hotel.

This place could get 5* but misses in a few areas - Good value
Reviewed 4 months ago

The old plantation farm house or hacienda has been inside immaculately renovated and looks modern and very nice.

It make a great stay and from just over 50 euros a night amazing value.

It misses however in some important areas.
1. The toilet/bathroom rooms within the rooms is glass and open to the bedroom.
Not over pleasant when being used.
You have to be careful at night with the glass, far too easy to walk into it!

2. The winery during the week is closed to visitors although the do run functions
when they do open up. Looses some of the charm of staying in a winery!

3. The place on closer inspection needs maintenace, too many loose doors

4. Not enough staff serving. There's a great bar but its not manned

5. No wine tasting for guests, again looses the winery benefit

6. Excellent pool area but tatty furniture and shades, come on spend the money!

Nearly a 5* Experience!

Perfect for an overnight stay in a rural setting, guests at this contemporary hotel will enjoy the charming decor and beautifully appointed rooms. The staff go out of their way to be helpful, but there are a few aspects that could be bettered to make it a 5* experience. Unfortunately, it wasn't made clear that the vineyard and cellar tours were only available at weekends, although an effort was made to accommodate us it was unavailable because a large event was being held. The restaurant food was very good, but the starters were nearly as expensive as the main courses and extremely large. One of our party didn't enjoy the taste of his lamb and it was sent back without charge. The only other issue was that we weren't able to taste the wine before buying anything from the shop, which was a shame as the shop didn't stock the Rose wine which we had drunk at dinner. Definitely worth a visit but take into account those couple of pointers.

Amazing peaceful hotel

A perfect hotel. Amazing food, beautiful views, fantastic room with friendly and helpful staff who go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Loved the wine tasting and vineyard tour and the wine is divine. Will be returning for more.
