The room was beautiful, the bed comfortable and the bathroom (shower, bath and amenities) were luxurious. This isn't what you'd picture when you think of a fairytale castle but because of that it seemed more authentic. The surrounds were very peaceful and it's away from the bustle of Salamanca. Our GPS took us through the back roads (dirt roads!!) but... More

Splendid, intact, fabulous food, magnificent breakfast. Dinner pricey but excellent. In the middle of nowhere with lovely views, smells & pool to chill on a non tourist day. Highly recommend. Upgraded to inside room with terrace & sat and ate our provisions IE, manchego , fresh bread, wine & olives & oil one evening at sunset with our travelling friends.... More

This is not your Disneyland castle, it’s a genuine castle, restored and refurbished, but keeping its authentic character….which may mean it’s not luxe enough for some (no elevators and no help with luggage etc.). Definitely not for the disabled. We (two couples) did find the basement rooms too subterranean and moved to rooms one flight up with a terrace. Due... More

Beautiful castle restored brilliantly full of antiques. Peaceful and relaxing environment. Very nice room with an amazing bed!.. Delicious dinner and very good continental Castillian breakfast. Definitely recommended.

Pros: Beautiful place, filled with amazing antiques, beautifully restored, nice breakfast. Cons: Our room was on the outside of the castle, practically subterranean with views into the moat from a very low window. It was noisy at night from pipework, the tv started downloading information in the middle of the night with a flashing light, got locked in our room... More

My wife makes on average, one outstanding suggestion in 20. Castillo del Buen Amor near Salamanca was such an awesome success that I fear I might now have to endure 40 - 60 really bad ones! She spent many hours researching hotels along the Ruta de Plata at a point where we would usually start to feel bored/tired/hungry/wasted etc! This... More

My wife and I spent two nights in this wonderful place in Dec 2014. The place is ideal to both visit Salamanca, Zamora and surroundings. Quality of the services, room and restaurant were excellent. It is a very special place where you have the impression to live in the middle age but with all the modern comfort! We will definitely... More

Behold a castle with history.... really plenty of it. I believe the origins date back to the XI Century..... for all of you not so keen in roman numerals...... that is eleventh century. ... and for those of you with which will enjoy even further clarification. .. that means. Over 1,000 years ago. The story behind the owners of the... More

Fabulous experience staying 3 nights in an ancient castle in the countryside. Accommodations were large and in character with the castle. Food, bed, and staff were great. Wandering throughout this restored (not remodeled) treasure was a delight.

We chose this place as a stop-off between Portugal and France. It warranted much more than a stop-off : within easy reach of Salamanca, this beautifully-restored medieval castle is situated on its own in splendid isolation in the fields. Our room was off the central courtyard, whose cornices were full of the original carvings and details. We were with our... More
