El sitio es espectacular, súper acogedor, tiene mucho encanto, parece que estás en un cuento. Además está un pelín retirado por lo que es súper tranquilo y a la vez puedes ir caminando a todos lados. Totalmente recomendable si vais a Santillana del Mar!!

Overnight stop
Lovely hotel within easy walking distance of the very pretty village. The hotel has a Spa (18€ extra charge) and an out door pool We had dinner at the hotel which was good. Breakfast was pretty standard. We only had one night here before catching the ferry from Santander, which was an easy 30 minute drive away.

Highly Recommended
Have now stayed at this lovely hotel 3 times which says it all. Such interesting decor including the vintage bikes and immaculately tended gardens. Free gym and outside pool though charge made for spa pool. Friendly obliging staff, enough English spoken to get by. Dinner is especially good value as it includes a very acceptable bottle of San Marcos red and a litre of water. Menu maybe a bit repetitive but nobody will leave the dining room hungry! Breakfast selection also excellent and varied. Brilliant new coffee machine. Rooms of a good size, very clean and beds comfortable. Plenty of parking spaces. Within a short stroll of the village centre - wear comfortable shoes as streets are cobbled. The church with its large tableau in the cloisters is well worth the €3 entrance fee. Incidentally it took us all of 23 minutes to drive to the port at Santander so a perfect choice after arrival or before departure on the ferry. Finally it is superb value for money.
