Half way to Algarve from Bilbao. Easy to find if you put the correct address in sat nav (I didn't). Really interesting place. We had a superior room with a dome ceiling, sitting room and huge bathroom. Arrived late 10.15 pm and they happily prepared an excellent meal for us. Staff pleasant and helpful. A bit historic/ spooky but a... More

Amazing castle, lovely place to stay in a lovely lovely walled town, nice views, beautiful little garden, just great, and easy access to all the local restaurants and the plaza mayor. Would go again happily!

We stayed at this parador over Christmas for two nights. On Christmas eve we very much enjoyed the excellent Christmas dinner of 5 courses. Our room was well equiped and very comfortable except the bed was much too hard for our taste. Breakfast very good. Staff very courteous and profesional. We so much enjoyed the hotel that we did not... More

I have stayed in Ciudad Rodrigo on a handful of occasions. It is an attractive town with many old sixteenth-century mansions and a cathedral ockmacked with artillery strikes from the Peninsular War. It also has its mediaeval walls (the circuit of which is recommended) and a tower, which forms the centrepiece of the parador. The rooms are delightful in the... More

I visit the Uk from Portugal twice a year, this Parador is about halfway to the ferry at Santander, having stayed at a few other hotels in the area, I think the fact that I have stayed there ten times might give you a hint. It is fabulous, full of history, immaculate rooms and very good cuisine. You must make... More

This Parador was very quaint, built inside/around an old castle within the city walls of Rodrigo. It had a lot of charm and history in it. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. The town of Rodrigo was OK. It had a few interesting sites, but not a lot. It was a good stopping place on our... More

Driving back from Portugal to Spain, we ended up near the natural border and stayed at this wonderful old castle hotel. The castle is on the top of the hill and the town has been built over time around its base. The hotels theme is extraordinary, from where you can walk up to the highest tower overlooking the town and... More

Rodrigo is probably not one of the most visited paradors because it is somewhat off the "beaten track" of standard tourist routes. It is, however, worth the detour. Excellent historical buildings, nice rooms, good breakfast, and right in the old town of Ciudad Rodrigo. Local restaurants and the main square are within easy walking distance. The town is not as...

Our view of the sunset form the Parador is one etched in our memory. While spending two weeks driving in Spain, we stayed here one night. BIG MISTAKE!!!! We should have stayed here a week! The view, the old town, the food and the service were outstanding.

Staying in a castle that has been upgraded into a hotel was a unique experience. The ambiance sets you back to the olden days and leaves you imagining what life was during that era. The restaurant serves exquisite meals comparable to dishes found in more expensive hotels and restaurants. The Parador is clean and the staff superb. We will make... More
