This is a wonderful hotel location inside the castle of Cardona. The castle is located about 1 kilometre from the centre of Cardona up a very windy road. The hotel has stunning views over the town and can itself be seen to dominate the skyline from around the town. The hotel , as you would expect for a parador has... More

Romantic, beautiful and peaceful hotel. The route from Barcelona to Cardona was very beautiful and easy to drive. The castle is surrounded by a small town with a few nice restaurants. Excellent breakfast with vast variety. For dinner the restaurant lost to those in town, which served better food for cheaper price.

This is a special atmospheric place on the top of a hill with views for miles around .Arriving by car it's only a short walk with luggage from the main castle car park and easier than the rather steep ramps .The restaurant is marvellous both in decor , service and food quality . The history of the salt mine is... More

Can't speak highly enough of this wonderful hotel which couples a sense of luxury and history. We had booked for half board and were not disappointed as the quality of the food in the restaurant was outstanding. The rooms were well appointed and ours was completed by a four poster bed. Would highly recommend.

Just back from our photo session (JEC article) trip with Sovereign to another wonderful sojourn at an authentic medieval castle here in Cardona, Catalonia. The wife and I had a great time, partaking of some delicious meals and we were able to really relax away from the hectic summer coastal madness that is Spain in July and August. Took some... More

Exceeded our expectations! Absolutely gorgeous property. Very romantic for couples. We spent several hours roaming the grounds. The staff was very professional and helpful. Our room was nice with a view of the salt mine which was interesting. Very good value for the cost. The drive in from Barcelona was about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Not exactly close but... More

Wow! I wish I had more than 1 night to relax and fully experience the splendor of this fortessa. What a treat at a very affordable price for 2 rooms that share a door. An evening with super in the patio was a huge treat. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were enormous, immaculate, and had everything one would need.... More

This was our first visit to this Parador. The room was fine and as usual for Paradors very clean. Great location with fabulous views. Staff were attentive and helpful. Parking a little difficult but probably due to the fact the Spanish children were on annual holiday. The food was ok but only ok. We feel Paradors in general need to... More
