Fabulous building - easy to find - you can't really miss a castle! Great parking paid directly to hotel so no messing about with the ticket machine. Lovely unusual room in turret with more amenities I remember at other Paradores - robes etc - fantastic towels. Very very quiet - great nights sleep. Usual excellent breakfast, usual slightly less appealing... More

Stayed here 1 night on the basis of half board. We were given a quaint room where the poster bed was located in a round room under a dome in the tower. Real castle experience. The dinner was adequate but rather basic. Not what you would expect from a parador. Breakfast was up to standard. Bar with too much light... More

We stayed in a superior room which was spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable. The Parador is located in the historic part of Zafra, and an easy walk to museams and the town's attractions. We arrived late in the afternoon and were pleased that the restaurant staff allowed us to have lunch at the Parador, even when this went quite beyond... More

We love to visit the Paradores, as they are preserving a lot of history. The special "Amigos" price is acceptable, and you basic always know, what to expect. The rooms are nice and clean. However, the side seeing of the city Zafra was disappointing. Therefor only 4 out of 5

It was great to stay in such an old castle. It was good fun walking around the battlements - especially in the dark! Very atmospheric courtyard with a good menu serving local specialities with friendly efficient service. You can park in the square outside the parador - don't rely on your Sat Nav though as we almost ended up in... More

We were en-route to the Costa del Sol from Bilbao and Salamanca and this was our final overnight stop. We had visited this Parador before and knew it to be picturesque and in a historic part of town. It accordingly had old- fashioned standards. Reception staff spoke English and we were shown to our dark old but comfortable room. Great... More

A small Parador in a small town in the middle of Extramadura. Don't expect classy service and you won't be disappointed. Other than one young lady on reception the staff were inept and lazy. One table in the courtyard had been occupied by eight local businessmen for their evening meal which they probably didn't finish until 23:00 or so. By... More

We only spent I night in this hotel but really loved it, it is a beautiful building with great atmosphere and charm. The rooms were large, comfortable and immaculately clean, the restaurant and food were very good and the general ambiance exactly what we now expect from Paradores.

We live in Spain and always look for the Parador Amigos offers. This was our first visit to Zafra, so opted for the 3 nights for the price of 2 offer on a suite. Imagine our horror on arrival to find that most of the road at the front of the hotel was under construction. I don't mean just gently... More

We stayed here for one night as a family of 4. It was clean, comfortable and in a good location. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was week equipped. The swimming pool was nice but be careful of how slippery the surface around the pool is. It is a grand old castle.
