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.
