After a gruelling crossing from Portsmouth what we needed was a comfortable bed. The Gran Hotel Sardinero was the perfect answer, clean, modern and comfortable. Very close to the port, but with a nice view of the sea. Easy off street parking or use the hotel car park. Although the restaurant was closed as we were late, the cafe bar... More

Overnight stop for a colleague and I while visiting suppliers in Leon. Very efficient staff and good location to have a wonder around. Other than that, it's a decent hotel in a nice area...indeed, I think I would be happy to stay here while spending a little time in Santander.

Booked superior sea view room through Brittany Ferries. Wow - worth every penny. Breathtaking view from balcony, two enormous beds, spacious and comfortable . The hotel has an air of faded grandeur and the staff are professional but friendly. No problem with language differences. Loved the outdoor terrace where drinks are served, very relaxing. Breakfast was good too, bit of... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We had a sea view which was fantastic looking out onto the beach. The hotel is situated at the beach end of Santander and it is a lovely walk into town which can take approx 30 mins or more depending how many view stops you make. There is a bus opposite the...

A very modern hotel on the seafront. Lovely room overlooking the sea. Helpful staff with good English. Only disappointment was the food which was limited and not to our taste, no vegetarian option which my wife would have liked.

My friend and I stayed here whilst attending a wedding. The hotel represents excellent value it is spacious and spotlessly clean with views over the beach. Our room had the added benefit of a balcony and was bright during the day and blinds made it dark when you wanted to sleep. The beds were very comfortable although another pillow would... More

The hotel is very good but has no gym or spa. It is comfortable and the rooms are relaxing and clean. The staff are the benefit of the hotel, always willing to help and make your stay as comfy as possible. Go to the Magdalena palace if you visit Santander, it's only 10 minutes walk from the hotel.
