        The venue was excellent close to the sea. We had dinner twice during our two day stay and all I can say is that it was excellent, plentiful and good value for money

        Parking was 10 euro per day for secure parking. If we did not have a soft top jeep with a lot of possessions, I would have parked on the roadside outside the hotel which in May afforded plenty of parking space. The breakfast was adequate. The fried eggs were dehydrated and hard and greasy. When I asked for fresh ones, the waiter promised to bring some but he only brought out more of the same!! Inedible

      • Older travelers

        Lovely location, easy reach of Ferry, great shops.

        No - just a shame about the weather

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Easy to find,sat nav friendly.Excellent walks along promenade by road and sea to the City centre.Nearby some great picnic spots,beaches outstanding.Staff can communicate a little in English which is reassuring.Wifi worked well in the downstairs receptions.Very easy to transfer to the ferryport terminal,only 5 minute drive.Great little patio area outside our bedroom,great views.

        Parking was extra,but secure.Wifi could not get a signal in the bedroom.

        .Front desk staff very helpful.

        Not acceptable for a 4 star hotel to have not english speaking channel. Room very small..Location could have been made clearer on your web site. No mention of it being beside the Sardinero beach.

        8.8

        we used it as a base to go to both ends of santander with the freindly service it was vary good

        not really but they could of put table and chairs on the garden because the garden was relaxing

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Good location light and airy Hotel, the Balcony was excellent and thr room great. Fellow guests were a little noisy above but that was due to poor acoustics( My speciality)

        Breakfast was a disaster. No bread rolls, Fried eggs took an age to arrive at 0900 I was told bacon was finished.I complained but nothing was done. Then I was overcharged for somebody else's coffee

        Modern hotel building in close proximity of the beach, but situated in a one-way street with little street noise. Balcony with view on the beach, terrace and garden. Friendly staff. Nice breakfast buffet with various local sweet pastries. Free internet. Bus stop near by.

        Weak wireless internet signal, but with cable adequate internet connection. Central light switch also switches off power of notebook and phone chargers. At some distance from the city centre.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Quiet location near beach, size of room and balcony, ease of entering garage, sea views, large windows. This was our second visit.

        No blankets - it was cold at night.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Good location very near beach but quiet, garage for car very good

        Room very small with tiny balcony

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Hotel very nice having balconies. Staff pleasant and helpful. Rooms very adequate and clean. Breakfast very nice, good choice. Position of hotel good for getting around. Very enjoyable break.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Hotel is modern, clean, and well positioned for beaches and easy access to the town and port.

      • Couple
        10.0

        The room we had was amazing- it had lovely views and a great balcony. The hotel was elegant and the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. We would definitely go back.

      • Single
        8.2

        I liked the most the location - very close to the beach and to the city centre it is 30-40 minute walk, 5 minutes by bus for 1,1 eur or 4-5 eur taxi drive which is ok.

        It is not that I would not really like it as the breakfast was fully ok, only that being in Spain I would expect to have also tortilla for the breakfast :-) rather than eggs and bacon. And basically I think the pictures on the web are better than reality, but the hotel was ok even if I would rate this hotel not as 4* but 3*.

      • Family with children
        5.8

        I felt this was poor value for a 4 star hotel

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The very welcoming and helpful attitude of all the staff that we had contact with.
