4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Lovely medieval town with many restaurants. Navigation into the town is a little difficult but the parador has garage and private parking. 30 minutes from Santander ferry and highly recommended to start or finish a holiday to this area.

A lovely experience, even in the off-season
I lovely place to stay in the heart of this historic town. Located in a beautiful area to walk around. Visiting during winter, and after COVID, meant that most restaurants nearby were closed, but the hotel staff took great care of us and ensured every meal was interesting and enjoyable.

Great hotel right on the main square
Great hotel right on the main square. Atmospheric historical decor and quiet room overlooking the little garden. Reception was friendly and welcoming. Parking was easy though it would have been better if the price was included in the room cost (8 euros). Very comfortable stay.
