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.

Beautiful quiet surroundings but avoid the restaurant
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This hotel and restaurant is also a wine bodega.
They make one white wine (strong flavour and 15,5 %...), one rose (balanced - easy to like), four reds, one bio (green label. They will stop the production - for a good reason), one bronze label (spicy, Bordeaux grapes), one silver label (clean, fruity, made primarily on Syrah) and one golden label (Bordeaux grapes, new oak). I would say that the rose and silver are ok.
There is easy access - two minutes drive from the highway, where there are a gas station and a 24h diner. 10 minutes drive away You will finite village of Durcal where the are restaurants and a supermarked.
The room at the hotel was very nice - big, with big bathroom. Wifi, airconditioning and a minibar. You will get a good night sleep in the comfortable bed with the windows open.
There is a poolarea with sun beds in the garden.
Looking isolated on accommodation, atmosphere, surroundings I would rate this 4 1/2 * - very good+ but I had the most awful experience (2 * - bad) in the restaurant (see my review) why we end at 4 *.

So Good Didnt Want Others To Know!!

We almost didnt want to write this review as we wanted to keep this fantastic hotel a secret. The fact that this beautiful hotel & winery is less than a minute off the main coast to Granada road you would not believe how tranquil a setting this is, hidden behind a small hill out of sight & earshot of the busy road
We arrived for our wedding anniversary and from the moment of check in the stand out of this place are all the wonderful & friendly staff, our room, a superior double (all rooms are classed superior other than the junior suites) was large & modern with some really nice touches such as the illuminated bedside tables, huge 2m bed & a lovely terrace to admire the views to the Sierra Nevada
The hotel has beautiful vineyards to wander around as well as a lovely pool area (open from June) and, if visiting at weekends, offers a winery tour & tasting which includes all of their own bottled ecological, bronze, silver & gold wines as well as rose & white also grown & bottled on site - even if you visit during the week there is an amazing wine shop in the reception area to browse
Due to its remote location we chose to enjoy our anniversary dinner in the hotel restaurant which was so good, and the views from floor to ceiling windows over the gardens towards the mountains was spectacular, the quality of food & presentation were exceptional, the prices we thought really reasonable & again it was the welcoming & friendly staff who made it such a great evening
We also enjoyed fantastic service sitting at the ultra modern bar - everyone there is rightly proud of their hotel & the wines and we were constantly being asked 'have you tried our silver, gold, rose?' and as soon as we said 'no we have only tried the bronze & white till now' they insisted on bring a glass for us to try which would have been rude not to try!! haha
Breakfast was served in the stunning surroundings of the restaurant again with a really good selection of pastries, cheese, hams, as well as eggs & bacon, fresh fruit skewers and juices - the only small disappointments were the lack of hot choices & (purely as it was our anniversary) it would have been nice to enjoy cava available with the orange juice but these are very small issues
We wanted to especially mention Tania on the reception as throughout our stay she went above & beyond - offering advice in the wine shop, arranging our room with the beautiful views & on checkout we asked if it was possible to view one of the junior suites for another visit. She took us to 2 of the 4 suites, both of which were beautiful but one in particular we loved & she asked if we had seen the winery (which we hadn't as it was midweek). She went & got the keys for the seperate areas & gave us a personal tour of not just the vat room & barreling area but also the original cellars which are now a function room, her knowledge & pride in her role were exceptional & she truly deserves a special mention
For us, this place has the location, the setting, and the facilities we love but what will take us back to this wonderful hotel more than anything is the staff....we will be back very soon!!!

Hidden gem
Reviewed 4 months ago

In the middle of a vineyard and 15 minutes outside of Granada sits this wonderful 25 bedroomed hotel with its glorious views over the snow capped Sierra Nevada’s.
Our room, a Junior Suite, was beautifully equipped and spotlessly clean. The hotel restaurant was superb, though a little expensive. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful with the charming young lady in reception escorting us on an impromptu tour of the vineyard. We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our fiftysecond wedding anniversary.

Superb hotel in a scenic location amongst vineyards

We have been on a few occasions and highly recommend. Staff are very friendly- hotel is modern architect designed with really large bedrooms and a patio with a view of the snow capped Sierra Nevada. Restaurant is high end with top class presentation of food.
