We booked in advance at this hotel where we have stayed 4/5 times before. It is vey convenient for the santander ferry, clean and comfortable and is according to all the booking websites "dog friendly", as it has been in the past. We arrived at the hotel after a 10 drive from Portugal with our friendly dog, dog tired wet... More

Used this place as a one night stopover on my way from the ferry to somewhere else. Cheap by UK standards (about £40) for the standard of room which was very good. Biggish room. Good bed, good shower, no bath, and everything worked. Free wifi. Good on site free adjacent parking which was from my experience secure. Pleasant and helpful... More

Good clean great value hotel, pleasant and helpful staff . Ideal as a stop from the UK if arriving by ferry. A bit difficult to find it comes up under hotel Santander papayas not City express . Good safe parking and excellent breakfast would not hesitate to recommend.

I stopped at this hotel after coming from the Portsmouth to Santander ferry. It takes about 10 minutes to drive from the ferry and is easy to find. The room was really nicely furnished and very clean, being done out in a kind of marble feel. It was comfortable, well equipped, and very new. Unfortunately when I arrived the restaurant... More

Room spacious and clean. Couldn't get a drink at 'bar' too... More

Had an unfortunate experience with a long ferry crossing that meant we could not travel to our original destination in the middle of the night. The ferry company organised this hotel for us. It was great as a one night stop over. I think there are many more places to stay in Santander however this was ok. Reception staff and... More

Used as a stop over from ferry for one night, value for money is excellent. Rooms very good. Easy to find and secure parking. I would definately use this hotel again. Helpful staff and good facilities. It's also close to shops and bars, and a petrol station.

Third time on this hotel and got to say that i will come back again. All services are good, the staff is Sharp and friendly. Good money value. Well situated in connection with the local airport. Cant tell about the breakfast quality, but the premises and the products were well presented.

very good hotel for a short stay, also being close to the ferry port was ideal for me with good parking. Also within walking distance to a large Centro Commercial, where you can get a meal etc. Although you can get a drink in the hotel, i could not get anything to eat when i arrived at 6pm
