“Paradore de Olite”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Spectacular entrance off town square, within fortified wall. Friendly receptionist who advised best place for motor bike parking. Welcome drinks voucher issued for bar.

Standard room with two twin beds side by side. Not really enough space for the coffee table and two chairs which were provided. Nice view from room over country side. Large (enough) LCD TV (all Spanish channels). Mini bar and room safe.

Food good at evening meal in restaurant. Staff, while friendly, seemed untrained in waiting. Music reminiscent of Richard Claderman playing hits of the 70s, not very authentic!

Breakfast buffet had a wide selection of fruit and cereal. A limited selection of hot food (sausage, ham, eggs) which was luke warm.

We stayed here on a holiday with my parents and had a great stay. In keeping with Spanish Paradors we have stayed at before it was just that bit special. Architecturally interesting as its located in the castle, a great welcome, good food for breakfast and evening meals. It was a level walk for mum around the town, which became alive at night as the Spaniards did their evening stroll.
The area was great for a wine tasting at Marco Real, trips to Pamplona and the nearby national park.
We didn't meet one Brit during our visit, a great plus!

from Hondarribia, we drove via the "green" national road (Michelin map) over Pamplona to Olite, where you desert the actual world when entering the medieval town....drop your luggage, go park your car back outside the the city walls, and start enjoying the beauty of this well preserved pearl of King Charles III..impressive beautiful edifice.
pay a visit to the wine museum on the square, and walk around in the small streets of olite. further we choose to visit one of the wine houses (family business Ochoa), and a short trip to a nearby fully authentic medieval village on a mountain (!), and passing by some "lakes" where you can observe birds life.
the Parador has excellent standards, very friendly staff, excellent restaurant too !

Room Tip: try the Bridal Room of Carlos III El Noble !

The Parador in Olite sits on top of a rise in the plains of Navarre. The medieval streets of Olite are quiet almost beyond imagining at night, perhaps because of the sense of security the castle offers this tiny town. The Parador is perfectly appointed, the rooms are supremely comfortable, and the staff is extremely helpful and generous in the use of English. If you want to take a step way back in time and feel what is might have been like to live in this region in the 1500s, spend a night or two here. I found it truly magical.

This Parador is in the heart of little Olite, in the middle of Navarre and the wine country. Easy drive to innumerable wonderful sites. The hotel is right on the square, easy luggage unloading and free parking is a block away. The Palace and cathedral are next door and worth the small entry fee. The room is huge, bathroom very large, and front desk extremely courteous and helpful. The breakfast buffet is large with great variety, excellent coffee, fresh squeezed OJ and other juices. Thoroughly enjoyed exploring Navarre for a couple of days from Olite.

If you want to get away from it all then this restored castle in the heart of Olite is the place. I had been spoiled as I came to Olite after staying at the more impressive Hondarribia Parador (4 Star). The castle at Olite is more impressive from the outside than the inside as it abutted the church and the Royal Palace. Olite is a very small medieval town in the middle of nowhere surrounded by vinyards. A great place from which to explore the Rioja wine route.

The bathrooms in both rooms I stayed in were well appointed and the free WiFi was a really good connection (although a bit of a pain having to log in constantly on an iPhone and iPad). The only disappointment is the lack of tea/coffee-making facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to cater for my gluten-free diet.

Room Tip: I had room 101 at the front of the building with a double bed. It was lovely but the floors were in...

Olite, a nice old village with a beautiful ( restored ) castle. The partly historic parador offers what you can expect from a three star hotel. As a lot of restaurants where closed on the sunday we had our diner in the parador. And we enjoyed it. Breakfast was good and the overall service friendly. You can drive to the parador to offload your bags but you have to use a public parking outside the walls. Aprox. 200 meters from the hotel
