“Delightful hotel”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

This relatively small hotel is full of historical furniture and decorations so you almost feel that you are in a museum. But the management is friendly and the rooms are modern and comfortable. A really fun place to stay with its plums in the big bowl on the table to welcome you.

Reviewed 21 July 2012

Very friendly and helpful staff from start to finish. Room basic but perfectly adequate with a good, strong, hot shower. The hotel is right on the corner by the entrance to the old town so very convenient and our room was on the side away from the road so we had two very good nights' sleep. Breakfast system is as described elsewhere - you receive a ticket to take to their sister hotel about one minute's walk away. We never had to show it as the camarero just asked us our room number so lukeclarke7 must have been very unlucky. The breakfast was to die for and as it was all self-serve, I don't understand why he had to wait for anything. A wide range of choice including cereals, fresh fruit, tortillas (as good as I've tasted anywhere in Spain), enormous pastries, cheese, ham, fresh bread and do-it-yourself toast.
58euros per double room for B&B of this quality in a very busy tourist town (Santillana del Mar is beautiful) is a bargain. Would we go back - you bet!

Been on a motorcycle hoilday with a friend and just rode 450 miles and found this hotel, When we went in the lady behide the counter spoke very good english, so this was a breath of fresh air after two weeks on the bike in spain. We payed 60 Euros a night for a twin room with breatfast. The lady then gave me a yellow ticket and said breafast is servered in the hotel up the road and the there was no bar or restaurant. The hotel at first look was nice, the room was very basic but clean, no tea or coffee in the room.
It was very loud in our room ( 301) as we where right on a very busy junction and it never let up all night. Because we where waiting for a boat we decided to stay another night a different lady didnt speck a word of english and just kept on rolling her eyes when we where trying to speck to her. In the morning i was up at 7am and there wasnt any where to get a cup of tea or any kind of drink, breafast was at 8 til 10 and at 8:15 in the hotel up the road i was still waiting. My friend lost his yellow ticket and (his meal ticket) a guy would not replace it and just started talking very loud and fast in spainish and waving his hands about. That was the morning we where leaving, at that point we just wanted to get of there. We left with out even a cup of tea because they wouldnt replace to ticket and there wasnt any where before 10am to get one. All in all, it started great and ended on a bad foot, i'm sorry to say.
