The Designated Spouse Equivalent and I hiked 1000km from Seville in the south of Spain to Santigo in the north in the two months prior to coming here and had after arriving at our destination, by way of decadent reward, hopped in a car, booked five different paradors across Spain and then on the very last night before flying home, checked into this place, above the old town, and collapsed, happy, tired and replete onto our luxurious bed.
We had eaten at each of the Paradors in Segovia, Lerma, Limpias and Santiago and each tiome had never been disappointed by the set price parador menu which showcased regional specialties. But the night we arrived here the bus load of 'Haponess' (or Japanese' in English) arrived and crowded us out in their methodocial and slightly chilling way so the parador manager booked us into a little cliff face place down the road where we ate superbly. The next morning we were reserved the best table in the restaurant by the mangement by way of compensation and had the curtains opened up onto a sunrise ( all the while ignoring the homicidal glares of the Burma railway-esque -queing Happoness who seemed not have mastered the idea of a buffet breakfast by mixing frsh fruit salad with chipolatas on the same plate ) and then we sat out on the balcony outside our room that looks down over the river and the old town, two lovers at rest, happy and delighted to have experienced perhaps the most beautifully situated parador in all of Spain (Segovia close second though the building itself has a touch of the 70's porn set about it with its brutalist interior design).
Don't try the congress of the adventurous couple in the bath - one of you will get a water inlet shaped bruise on your upper thigh that will take some explaining to your local doctor.
Balcony rom is a must
