Located in the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains, this small, family-run hotel is a quiet retreat for those looking to explore off-the-beaten track Mallorca. With its striking courtyard, sympathetically restored stone walls and beamed guest rooms with free Wi-Fi, a welcome bottle of Cava and cozy furnishings, the Cas Comte Petit Hotel is a romantic alternative to the hustle and bustle of the island’s beach towns.
In the Area
The hotel is no more than an hour’s drive from most of Mallorca’s major sights; hotel staff can assist with recommendations for local wineries, hikes and even scenic helicopter rides. The nearby town of Inca is known for its leather factories (the brand Camper is based here) and for its Thursday crafts market. Think: hand-made jewelry, carved olive wood souvenirs and fresh produce. And if independence calls, grab a bicycle rental and head out on the criss-crossed, open-plain paths.
How to Get There
This was our second time at Cas Comte Petit Hotel & Spa (the first was in September 2016) and again we enjoyed every minute of our time there. This time we stayed for eight nights (on a bed and breakfast basis) in one of the suites overlooking the hotel's cobbled courtyard.
However, if you are looking for a "full service" hotel in a busy tourist area with 24 hour reception, a 24 hour concierge/porter service, a large pool where you can spend most of the day, a bar/restaurant open for most of the day and private parking, Cas Comte is not for you.
This boutique hotel with about fourteen rooms is a restored "palace" adjacent to a church (the bells are rung but this did not disturb us) in the centre of the small town of Lloseta. There is parking in the area round the hotel and we never had any problem finding a space.
We were welcomed on arrival, asked if we needed help with our luggage and shown our suite. The suite was virtually identical to the one we stayed in last time - spacious, comfortably furnished, with ample storage space, a safe, tea and coffee making facility and two flat screen TVs. The bathroom was large with a big jacuzzi bath and separate shower.
My wife used and enjoyed the small spa. We both spent a little time on the roof-top terrace with its small plunge pool - ideal for cooling off on a hot day.
The buffet breakfast was adequate rather than outstanding. There was always a good selection of cold items (cereals, juices, yoghurt, fruit, breads, cheeses, cold meats, etc) but the hot selection was somewhat limited and unexciting.
The town is quiet but has three or four good restaurants and several local bars - our favourite bar was Bar Bestard in front of the hotel - the folks there were welcoming and friendly and the bar offered a good selection of good quality Mallorcan bar food.
There is also a train station in the town with a regular service to Palma and Manacor - an ideal way to travel to the city and avoid the hassle of parking.
We would still have no hesitation in recommending Cas Comte to friends looking to spend a quiet hotel in the real Mallorca.
We stayed for 6 nights at the hotel in July 2018. It is a lovely old building that is situated between the village church and the old Palace. Is has been restored to a very high standard and is a beautiful building to be around. It is not a large hotel chain but run locally.
Our room was excellent (room 4) and had a large 4 poster bed, large windows onto the courtyard and a jacuzzi bath and shower. The bathroom was enormous and amazing. Everywhere was spotless. The room had everything you need including coffee maker and mini bar. Prices for the mini bar were not in the room but drinks were good value at 3 euro a beer and 2 euro a soft drink.
Breakfast was a buffet affair with lots of delightful local produce on offer, the hot food changing daily. Breakfast is taken either inside or on the terrace.
The pool is on the roof and absolutely worth the stay! It is a stunning stone pool with whirlpool and most of the time is left to yourself. The roof has day beds to laze around on or you can use the comfiest loungers ever found!!
Location wise, Lloseta is not a big place! There are a few local bars around and also one of the best restaurants on the Island in the village, but not a great deal else. However, the hotel is just 5 mins from the brilliant train that takes you to Palma, Inca, the brilliant Binissalem or beyond if you want. Most people use the hotel as a calming base to explore the Island. We found the train to be more than fine and to be honest you did not need to take a care hire.
It is not difficult to get the hotel from the Airport by public transport, jump on the number 1 bus at the airport for 5 euro and get off at Plaza de Espana in Palma. From there the train runs every 20 mins to Lloseta for another 6 euro. A taxi from the airport will cost 50 euro.
Like I said the hotel is not a chain so dont expect to be waited on hand on foot. The style is very much relaxed and laid back, evidenced by the mini bar that works on an honesty basis. Yes they could wander round the pool area every now and then to see if anyone wants a drink but that is just not the way the hotel works.
We loved it and may well go back when we want to completely unwind and relax!
PS there is a sauna and indoor jacuzzi but we did not use it.
This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful building although the location would only suit those looking for a quiet stay away from the tourist trail, and those who enjoy quiet inland Spanish life.
We loved our room which was very charming. Lots of nice touches you would expect in this type of hotel. It would have benefited from a window in addition to the French doors but it’s been built within a very old building and so I guess not always possible. We also loved the charm of being next to the church and having breakfast outside on the cobbled courtyard.
Breakfast was good and the staff understood my Spanish which is always a bonus.
A few little niggles such as the maid leaving the laundry outside our room each day which meant our view from our courtyard was of other people’s bedding and the laundry trolley. Also one day our room was not serviced until almost 5pm which is a little late.
We preferred to eat at the local bars and found these friendly, very good value and made for a relaxing evening with the locals. There were no tourists other than those staying in the hotel which was a nice change from other parts of the island and we got to see more of local life.
An added bonus in Lloseta is the train station - inexpensive and punctual travel to various places meant we could leave the hire car parked up for some days.
Overall our stay was great and we found everyone friendly and welcoming.
My boyfriend and I booked for two nights at the beginning of May. We were slightly concerned given the mixed reviews on Trip Advisor, but decided that as the majority were really positive it would be ok.
Firstly, it is hard to find the hotel because it is set back from the road and there is no designated parking. However, we found a spot nearby and then saw the sign to the hotel which really needs replacing because it is very faded.
We arrived in reception and found a couple in discussion with the receptionist/manager. Once finished, she turned to us but offered no words of welcome nor did she introduce herself to us. Then she said she would show us around the hotel and take us to our room. However, this amounted to nothing more than 'head that way for the spa', 'the pool is on the top floor', 'take the lift to the 2nd floor and room is to the right'. It all felt as if she really didn't care that we had turned up or if we enjoyed our experience. When we asked about changing our booking she would take no responsibility or offer to help, we were told 'Bernat is here in the morning, you need to deal with him'.
So I'm afraid we decided to check out after one night and were pleased to have booked the hotel via a third party which made this easy and we got our money back.
If you are still reading, then I'd like to say that the room was nice, the bed was very comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. The bathroom is partitioned off by frosted glass and not very private (& there are no public toilets in the hotel)...
We ate at the restaurant they have a deal with and enjoyed the set meal here very much.
Breakfast was nice.
This might be slightly biased since I was so fortunate to be upgraded to a suite from a single room. I was simply blown away by how wonderful the room was - almost larger than my own apartment and with spa and shower. Furthermore the room was possibly the most quiet room I have ever had in a hotel.
The breakfast was superb with fresh juice, local dishes and a good selection of fruits and nuts - no better way to start the day. The waiter was also very kind and could speak both English and German to some extent.
Of note, the pool on the roof should also be mentioned since it was very nice as well and with a good view of the surrounding area - you will also always know the time, since the nearby church bell will tell you so. Some might find it annoying, but I found it charming.
As to negative things, then you don't have many local restaurants to choose from for dinner but there are some good ones around or else you can go to nearby city of Inca
