the hotel is located at a hill and is really beautiful. car park is limited and road up is narrow. dinner is very nice and good value. room clean and comfortable. the castle alone is well worth the visit

This is a real castle - never captured! The experience for a castle geek is unparalleled! Don't miss it! The food is fine but the location and the castle itself is completely amazing! Transport yourself back in time and have a ball!

After a bit of a disappointing drive, the Parador is superb. Great building and lovely rooms. Dinner very good ; breakfast choices super and delicious. First time in a Parador and set a high standard to match. Location not as special as hoped - lots of industrial activity in the views.

About 4 hours drive on the backroads from Parador de Olite through lovely countryside to Cardona. Parador in a stunning building and location. Staff all very friendly and professional. Food very good and breakfast selection awesome.

The booking pictures were spectacular. Driving up to it was even more spectacular. The castle fortress was spectacular from the outside and inside. The vaulted dining room romantic. The food very good and the service very good. The rooms were spacious and clean. We plan to return on our next visit to Catalan.

What a place to spend a night (or two)! We were travelling as a family and were put into two somewhat secluded rooms with the view into the courtyard. One of our rooms had a lovely four-poster bed and both were nice and clean. Dinner was truly lovely: food was great and the service very professional.

Let me begin with the positives. Each member of the limited staff we came across seemed to be doing the work of 2 persons. The staff at the restaurant and front desk were attentive, helpful and applied common sense. For example, during breakfast one waiter brought us a pot of chocolate dip (instead of a cup) for our churros when... More

This is one of the best Paradors, in setting, upkeep. Our room was large, clean, great view, reasonably well appointed. The restaurant had better service than most of Spain, and food above average. This historical location is not to be missed, and with this Parador being in such good shape, don't pass it up if the opportunity arises. Some Paradors... More

You can be the princess for a night at this hotel. You literally are in the castle that you dreamed about! Yes, it is not easy way to get there if you do not have a car, but you can take a bus from the center bus station in Barcelona. The room is very charming and the furniture is very... More

Stayed here for a night travelling back into France from the south of Spain. Always fascinating to stay in a building which dates back over a 1000 years. Booked the stay under the amigos gastronomy package. Booked a superior room which ended up being a suite, large, clean and very comfortable. The reception was friendly, and the evening meal a...
