Las Carolinas Hotel-School is located within a plot of land with the same name, "Las Carolinas", and is managed by the Cantabrian Hotel and Catering Business Association. Young catering students and chefs are trained here. It occupies a XIX century restored mansion which has 500m2 gardens with two splendid magnolias and a thousand-year-old yew, among other specimens. It subsists in a truly rural environment within the city. Las Carolinas Hotel-School is also located at the top of a hill with spectacular views of Santander and is only 10 minutes away walking distance from the city centre. The Hotel School Project aims to endow the catering and hotel industry with qualified personnel. It seeks to do so by training professionals within the industry's different fields of work. All of the association's training activities are gathered within this single space. These training programmes have been designed to be both theoretical and practical, focusing on kitchen, dining room and hotel management. In order to offer adequate training, there is nothing better than a training centre where students can put the theory they have previously learnt into practice. The main building has thus been turned into a small hotel with 13 rooms and a dining room with a capacity for 40. It operates as a conventional hotel and catering business. The rooms at the Hotel School are decorated in s simple manner, with light wooden furniture and floors. They are all equipped with two beds or a double-bed, a desk, central heating, a bath, a hairdryer and amenities. To start the day off, a full buffet breakfast is also included within our accommodation price. During the academic period, a menu is offered at lunch time which includes an appetizer, a first course and a second course. On Thursday and Friday evenings we prepare a sampling menu. All meals must be booked in advance. All the services at the hotel school are offered by industry students and workers, with a special focus on personalization and quality.

This hotel is not easy to find - our satnav struggled - but is worth the effort. It is based at a training college for the catering industry and apparently does good food when in term time. Unfortunately the college was on holiday when we...More

We are a small hotel that belongs to the Hospitality Association of Cantabria who carried out a new project a few years ago. The project is based on the creation of new cooks and catering workers. All our students deal with our guests and learn the basics areas of a restaurant or a hotel. Due to our school project, our restaurant only opens during term time.
