What a shame!! I can not tell to much about the rooms and all that, just because they did not let me. They say they are always open on their website and, as it is a hotel, they should be open!!! I pass through this afternoon because I wanted to ask about weddings (I am going to get married here...

This is one of the most charming places I have ever stayed at. The building is just stunning and the staff is adorable, they would do anything to make sure you feel at home. Breakfast is not great, is not a lot of choices but the location is the best.

Friends of ours who were unable to join us on this trip suggested we spend a night here after our journey to Santander. What a great recommendation it turned out to be. It is a bit isolated in a small village but a beautiful old building with lots of history. It is on what used to be the main road...

This castle is nested in the mountains and is a hidden treasure! The family palace was built in the early 1600's and renovated in the 1800's. It was restored by its current owners and will offer the modern amenities in a old world charm. You will go up to one of the seven rooms on second and third floors by...

This secluded treasure is specially for those who view vacation as an experience and not a checklist of monuments. Tucked away in a tranquil, pastoral setting in Cantabria this palace was built in the early 1600's and renovated in the 1800's. It was lovingly restored by its current owners and retains the rustic charm of a 17th century family palace...

We travelled through Northern Spain and during our trip spent 3 nights in Torre De Ruesga. which is set in beautiful gardens with an amazing view to the mountains on all sides. The old building has been renovated with taste and the room we took under the roof was very spacious and clean. The quality of the food served in...

What a find. We chose this hotel almost by accident, deciding to choose a hotel nearer the port of Santander for our final night. In fact, it turned out to be probably the finest hotel of all five we have used in our three years of exploring Northern Spain, and we will certainly be starting our holiday at Hotel Torre...

We stayed in this beautiful hotel on the way back to the ferry in Bilbao after a long tour through Spain, and what a wonderful end to our holiday this proved. Even though the autumn weather was misty and disappointing, we still appreciated the warm welcome of the manager Giorgio and his attention to the finest detail of our stay....

We were staying here on a Groupon voucher - great value, but it meant that we could rerurn to a part of Spain we had not visited for over 10 years. This town is up in the mountains, so do not expect beach weather. It rained some of the time, but when the sun shone we could really enjoy the...
