Good central situation
Dark and gloomy entrance hall. Little or no info on sights and events in the surrounding area. No dining facilities, place to have a drink or sit outside (except in car park) on site. Limited range of tv channels. Mournful and unwelcoming lounge.
This was the perfect little town. The hotel is a old mansion converted to luxury rooms with great service. The whole experience is great and the location for seeing the town and Altimira caves is perfect.
Its location in the centre of the town. Its location for visits to the sea, other towns and culture sites. The selection of good places to eat. The receptionists.
Rather disorganised breakfasts, even though they were self-service. Parking was sometimes difficult even though there was an 'overflow' garage.
Room and service was lovely, restaurant poor and terribly expensive
The restaurant - uncooked fish that was returned twice to the kitchen, wrong translation of the name of the dishes into english, and terribely expensive!!
We stayed at Santillana for two days at the end of our holiday in Spain prior to catching the ferry back to England. The hotel is in the very attractive town of Santillana with its mediaeval streets, quirky shops and friendly bars and is the perfect place to stay before making the trip back to the uk.
A beautiful parador experience in a medival small village and the convinience as a starting point to trips in the region. Also, the great dinner.
Fabulous hotel. Friendly and welcoming staff. Generous and comfortable bedroom and bathroom with great views. Ample parking and a garage. Splendid breakfast. Fantastic location in centre of old town od Santillana del Mar.
The Parador is in the centre of a very interesting medieval town, with internationally renowned caves with pre-historic cave drawings close by.
The Parador does not have its own restaurant for either dinner or breakfast. Meals can be taken at a sister, but more expensive Parador, within walking distance
The location above all and the quietness of the place.
The male staff was not able to use our international cards twice. I mean we had to try two different cards which we knew were not blocked. At the 3d time w/ our 3d and last credit card he decided to do it "manually", as he said, which was another machine.
Dates from 11th Century and has a long history.
The food. It was authentically of the period which while this was in keeping with the age of the Parador it was a bit heavy for those used to modern standards.
A lovely hotel in a lovely very old village.It Is in a good position in the centre and many interesting buildings including a church and museum to visit. A very convenient stopover if you are travelling to Santander to catch the ferry back to the uk as it is only 45 mins from the port. The room and food were excellent.
A slight disadvantage is the fact that your evening meal is taken in the sister Parador hotel only a short distance. Not good if it were to be bad weather.
Lovely room in beautiful surroundings, very clean and comfortable
We had difficulty finding the hotel once we got to the village, no signs. Whilst the staff were highly efficient and polite it would have been nice if they smiled.
La tranquilidad y la posibilidad de aparcar en las propias instalaciones sin coste añadido (aparcamiento exterior). La calefección muy bien, nada de frío pese a estar en invierno. y sobre todo, la enorme y magnífica habitación que nos dieron, sin haberla pedido expresamente.
Todo perfecto. Como única pega, el baño (aun estando totalmente equipado y siendo excelente) necesita una pequeña renovación, ya que presenta los efectos del paso del tiempo (bañera con algún pique, tapa del wc ligeramente estropeada).
Absolutamente todo. El desayuno resulta completisimo, la habitacion muy amplia y muy limpia al igual que el baño y la facilidad para aparcar en el exterior.
Todo bien, pero por decir algo, el primer dia le decimos a la persona de los desayunos que tiene como 10 yogures caducados y los retira. Al dia siguiente seguia habiendo como 4 yogures caducados. El desayuno es en el parador de enfrente, en el Gil Blas (a 30 metros), algo que no se dice en la reserva pero no importa en absoluto.
como siempre en Paradores, excelente todo el personal del hotel. El hotel tiene mucho encanto y sabor, con una situación privilegiada en el centro de Santillana
El suelo de madera es algo ruidoso, aunque a mi me encanta
