My wife and I stayed at Hotel Montejaque over Christmas 2011. We had never heard of the village nor intended to visit it until it was recommended by someone on a travel blog. It turned out to be the best advice on travel we've ever received.
The owners/management are British, however, they have made every attempt to integrate the hotel into the village lifestyle whilst maintaining creature comforts that most English speaking guests look for. They are extremely friendly and have a deep understanding of what hospitality actually means.
The hotel is perfectly situated on the town square, which allows you to people watch the townfolk as they take in the sun in the square during winter. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable and the service is extremely friendly. The food at the bar/restaurant is excellent and they're also happy to point you in the right direction of the best tapas bars depending on what time of day it is.
The white mountain village is only small with a population of around 1100 people including surrounds but has some amazing views and many recommended walks for the hiking enthusiasts. It is difficult to transpose the beauty and vibe into words, so I won't try. Its something you have to experience for yourself.
The hotel put on a traditional English Christmas lunch, which although was astray from Spanish-village-traditional-experiences, was exceptional. We met many friendly and very interesting characters and had an absolute ball. Recommended to all.
