    Very good

    Very convenient for passing through Santander if you have a car

    This is the second time we have stayed here. The first time the food was very good but this time it was terrible - undercooked sauces and fish and served cold. The restaurant was badly understaffed with just one waiter/barman who was fighting a losing battle to keep up.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    Excellent location overlooking Sardinero beach. Lots of restaurants nearby.

    Reception staff very unhelpful. Asked for help with safe via telephone. One hour later went to reception, she had "forgotten about it". The man who came up immediately sorted it in two minutes. Safe is very small (wallet size). All hotel safes should now be able to take a small notebook computer at least. No hotel parking available, parking anywhere is almost impossible so be prepared to wait around for a long long time for someone to move ! (or park illegally like a lot of people)

    The hotel was in a great location in beautiful Santander near the beach very accessable, great walks nearby, most scenic and in a residential area which was very peaceful. The bus service to the city was excellent and there was a taxi rank nearby also. We dined in the hotel in the evening and the food was very good indeed. Tha bar was comfortable with good service. It was a most memorable holiday.

    Superb

    The hotel is wonderfully situated, wonderful sea views. It's a little quite around this part of town but only a ten minute walk in to the city it's self. Great public transport service on the door step.

    Superb

    We thought at first that there would be as issue with a language barrier but the staff really tried to help us with our questions and if they couldn't answer would find someone who could. This was a very nice hotel right on the beach with a bicycle bay right in front.

    This is our second stay at that hotel and this time the room we were allocated was fantastic. It made our stay even better than before.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Spacious comfortable room. Nicely equipped bathroom with a good range of toiletries. Excellent position, a little way from the town but with plenty of bars and restaurants around. Worth paying the extra for a room with a sea view. Would stay there again.

    Only the cafe bar was open in the evening, the chic looking main restaurant was closed.

    Good

    Very friendly and helpful staff.

    The furniture, quite old, and the tobacco smell of one of the rooms (we requested non-smoking). They run out of kettles and cods.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Good breakfast, proximity to the beach, bus stop and other attractions.

    The old tv and the slow internet service were sub-standard at a Hotel in this price range
