Stayed for one night after overnight ferry Plymouth-Santander. About 2 hours easy journey from Santander.
Beautifully restored hotel. Lovely room overlooking the courtyard and old houses at the rear. Service was excellent and porters and reception very helpful.
Location is quiet yet right in the heart of the old town with underground parking about 100 yards away.
Evidently Napoleon stayed here during the Peninsula Wars; yes we had to look it up on the internet as well. Remember Duke of Wellington and Sharp!
Only downside was that we couldn't get wi-fi internet access; it's there but for some reason the password didn't register on our lap-top.
