Reviewed 23 December 2016 via mobile

Chosen as having good reports , price and the free parking. Had been traveling Spain and Portugal and fed up with some parking charges a fraction cheaper than the room. We were satisfied with room , service and breakfast. Ideal for motorists using ferry terminal. Yes a bit far from city centre but we found a small local restaurant meters from the hotel which had great food and service. La Mancha. I would certainly use this hotel again.

Reviewed 4 September 2016 via mobile

I stayed here for two nights before getting the ferry to Portsmouth in the uk, traveled from Gran Canaria so needed a pit stop before my last leg of the journey,

Staff were spot on, I arrived well before the check in time and there was no problem in letting me have the room, so I could pass out after a 12 hour drive with breaks on the way,

Apart from the continental breakfast and bar food which done the job for me there is no chef on at weekends, bar is very reasonable and great for just chilling, there is a restaurant just a few meters up the road which was recommended by staff and customers sitting at the bar,

Wifi very slow but this is the norm for Spain not the hotels problem, shops close by if you want a snack a few 100 meters down the road on the right, more large stores a bit further on the left, and even further a very large shopping centre which has everything for the wife, I walked down on a Sunday and everything was shut so only open in the week, apart from the little store on the right before the roundabout that sells everything which suited me a few snacks for later.

Gym is a full gym also a sauna and a small swimming pool all free with the room no hidden extra costs like some hotels,
As I said does the job .
Not the savoy but a good pit stop place......

We wanted an overnight stop not too far from the ferry port with wifi and parking for a motorcycle.

This hotel fitted the bill. It's strange as it seems to be the local gym with a floor of hotel rooms above.

No restaurant in the evening but the receptionist was helpful and gave us directions to a really nice one about half a mile away.

Breakfast was good for only €3 each,

The only fly in the ointment is the "main" access from the main road. Through the gate and the rough uphill dirt track with hairpin bend.

Instead go past to the roundabout and take first exit and into the upper and better car park!!!

All in all well worth the visit.

Reception Ladies are excellent, cannot do enough for you. rooms are clean and acceptable, not luxury, TV is ancient , bathroom good, spa is good, access with luggage to hotel is not good, no luggage carts. Very confident for Santander City without the night life noise. Parking safe and easy.

Room Tip: Choose a room over looking the car park and front of hotel.

I've been hostes in this hotel during june 2006. It's situated in the surroundings of Santander (5 km from city centre) very easy to reach from the a67 highway. It is cheap, quiet, recently renovated and with a useful staff.

It is a 3 star hotel with own free parking, a little spa (a small swimming pool and a turkey bath). Our room had also a small kitchenette and it was spacious. The bath was ok.

If you are planning to visit only Santander i wouldn't reccomend the hotel (it is far from the city and you have to take the car) but if you want a quiet place, near the highway and easy to reach to Suances, Santillana del Mar and all the small pretty villages near Santander, this is a very good choice!
