Me wife and I stayed here in early February for a visit to Santillana del Mar and the Altimira Museo. The small Posada is very welcoming as are the hosts. One speaks some English. The establishment is clean and the room we had very adequate for the cost. Parking is no problem. The free breakfast consisted of a variety of... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this small hotel. Our host was so helpful and the conversation was always interesting. The hotel was on the edge of the Santillana del Mar but literally a five minutes walk to the centre. The village itself is incredibly busy during the day with day trippers by coach but the hotel is quietly situated... More

One of the best features of this lovely posada is the owners, who go out of their way to welcome visitors and help them in any way during a stay in this home that has been in their family for over 200 years. It is in a perfect, quiet location on the edge of the historic part of Santillana del... More

We arrived there and a very nice man brought us to the room. The room was nice, with a very big bed and a clean bathroom. The man in reception explained us what to do, gave us a map and recommended some places for dinner. It felt like being in some of your family's home. The breakfast was nice, with... More

Old stone Cantabrian hotel owned by a family. Very clean and quiet and the owners are very nice, attentive and knowledgable and ready to share all the unknown hidden gemstones of the Cantabrian coast. We were the only guests that night, but nevertheless got full service and attention from the owners. And a good breakfast! To describe how good the... More

We stayed at this small family run place for two nights on our way to the ferry at Santander. Had no booking but easily accommodated as October and no other guests there. Is just south of the main road running thro Santillana and is in quiet spot with parking. Santillana is a museum village, full of lovely Cantabrian old restored... More

I have just got back from touring the North of Spain and Portugal. My partner and I were on a budget of no more than 45 euros a night which needed to include parking). La Posada de la Abadia was by far the best stay of our journey and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. When we arrived we were... More
