Excellent option for anyone coming in from, or heading to, the ferry or airport at Santander. An 'older style' hotel only insofar as it has character and taste, and is not just another indistinguishable chain hotel with CNN on the TV. Modern fixtures and fittings, good internet, and large rooms and bathrooms. Very helpful desk staff. At the time of writing (16/9/2020) Tripadvisor is flagging the hotel as "temporarily closed". Don't know why, because it isn't.

One night stop after visiting the Altamira Caves. Cosy older style hotel with character. Free parking. Short walk to historic center of Santillana for dinner or dine at the hotel in season. Clean, good bed and good shower. Nice wood burning fireplace in common room.

The family members that run this hotel are very friendly and welcoming. They speak excellent English, a rare find in Spain :) It’s also nicely located next to the tourist information center and in the town center. Rooms were spacious, breakfast was fine. Overall, we would definitely stay here again.

This place met all my expectations. My room was pleasant with a welcome heater in the bathroom. My friends and I had ground floor rooms which were separated from the public areas with a door. The room was big enough even for my friends who shared a room (2 per room). The young brothers who own this place were friendly enough. When my friend and I had glasses of wine before going out to dinner, a fire was lit in the lobby which felt cosy. Breakfast was adequate. We liked the bacon and trying different local sweets. There were cheeses and cold cuts, yoghurt and breads. We enjoyed the 3 nights that we stayed here.

Room was very clean and tidy. Next time I stay I will upgrade my room. Not because there was anything wrong with what I had but a premier room wasn't expensive and you have a coffee machine in your room which is unusual for Spain. The only negative I have is that the onsight restaurant was closed whilst we were there which meant I had go without supper (husband was ill so didn't want to leave hotel). Had breakfast at hotel and although basic was delicious and the coffee was lovely.

Great place to stay to explore Santillana Del Mare and surroundings. Helpful owners and staff, free parking beside hotel, good-value buffet breakfast and on-site cafeteria open all day (we enjoyed evening cup of tea by the log fire in sofa area after long days out). Good sized room decorated in colonial style, very comfortable and warm.

The hotel is within easy walking distance of the old town of Santillana and has free parking, which is like gold in that area. We had a twin-bedded room with ample space and a good bathroom with a walk-in shower. The staff were very helpful and the dinner we had there was reasonably priced and very tasty. We wanted to book another night or two there, but as it was the equivalent of a bank holiday weekend coming up and the hotel is deservedly very popular with the Spaniards, no room at the inn, unfortunately! Nevertheless and even though we were not guests at the time, the host gave us help above and beyond the call of duty, as we'd had a car window smashed out by thieves, and he helped us to rig a temporary repair to the window. Many thanks to him!

We had lunch at the restaurant, which was absolutely delicious. Great outdoor setting and delicious, local food. The host gave us a traditional homemade cheese desert, which was absolutely delicious!!
