I should explain that we got a special offer as Amigos which meant we paid about 220 euros for 2 midweek nights bed and breakfast in early June. At this price we thought it was excellent value and a wonderful overall experience. The location and the interior of the building are stunning and so convenient for visiting the main sights (as long as you don't suffer too badly from vertigo on the slightly wobbly footbridge across the gorge!), and also for walking in the surrounding countryside. It's really easy to find (signposted all the way through Cuenca) and there is free parking.
Our standard double room was spacious with a large bathroom including double wash basins, bath with shower over, and a separate toilet. The view from the loo was amazing - our room was located at the back of the parador overlooking the gorge. Stunning. The room had a comfortable king size bed, safe, minibar and TV: everything we needed.
Others have commented on poor service but we had quite the opposite. From reception to the bar and dining room, all the staff were friendly and helpful. If anything it was some of the customers who were less than polite and friendly!
We didn't eat dinner in the restaurant but certainly at breakfast there was plenty of choice and all very fresh each day.
My only very slight disappointment was that the swimming pool is only available in high season (ie July and August) and after a very hot day of sightseeing I would have loved to cool off in the pool.
Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would certainly recommend it.
