“Clean, comfy & VFM”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

My wife and I stayed in this hotel April 2012 for 7 nights. More days than planned because our ferry crossing was cancelled. We looked at other hotels but considered this one the best value for money. It was a good location for us with the car and parking was readily available in the free car park. This is shared with the attached mini supermarket and café/bar/restaurant. It is in a central location to explore the whole area by car, but not by foot. The hotel its self was very clean and staff friendly and helpful. I don’t think any of the rooms have a good outlook because its in an urban area, so don’t expect a nice view from the room. The beds were comfortable. However we had booked a double bedded room but when we got there we were told that they only had five and they were all booked so we ended up in a twin. So again beware they will take your booking even if they can't meet your requirement. We could also hear the people in the next rooms talking quite clearly . I would imagine the lack of sound insulation could be a problem with noisy neighbours, The room itself was modern and a good size with a soft arm chair and desk provided. The bathroom was also a good size with a bidet, (no bath in our room). and a lovely big quality shower.
Would my wife and I stay again? For a no frills, clean, comfortable, modern, value for money hotel with cafe/bar, mini supermarket and free car parking. Yes we would.

Room Tip: They do offers e.g. 4 nights for the price of 3

Brilliant comfortable hotel with helpful staff and excellent value food.

Room Tip: Not too easy to find so it may be worth printing a detailed map from the web before going there.

booked last minute but got 5 nights for the price of 4,although from the outside its looks travelodgish inside its a smart modern chic hotel with a nice lobby area and spacious rooms complete with modern spacious shower room.The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms cleaned within minutes of leaving the room whatever time of day.it is a bit out of the centre but in a nice quiet area,it has a supermarket and restaurant below and there,s a brit style sports bar a 5min walk away which has great food,a taxi into santander ranged from 11-16 euros depending on cab.no complaints whatsoever even at twice price i paid....public parking to front and back is fine with plenty spaces...

We have stayed here for a single night on two separate occasions when arriving off the ferry in the evening and when waiting to return. It's ideal as parking is easy and it's only a 5-10 min drive to the ferry port. Hotel staff are very welcoming and do speak English.

The rooms are very modern and clean and there is a restaurant/cafe bar attached for either formal meals or snacks. The very friendly locals use the cafe/bar as well so it has a very traditional feel. There is also a very handy supermarket and garage close by.

Be careful if using Tom Tom as you will end up about a mile from the hotel if you do. We had to ask very helpful locals for directions. and I was told this is a common problem

The best thing about this hotel is the very helpful, friendly staff (although it does help if you speak a bit of Spanish.) The rooms were comfortable apart from the lack of air conditioning - the hotel's website says most rooms have it but the 2 rooms that my party had did not and it was a very warm week. So best to check. Also - the hotel is in a residential area and has a bar and large dining rooms - so at weekends it is noisy until early morning. Also - the binmen/recycling people came at about 1 a.m. - quite normal for Spain but a bit of a shock for us. The breakfast buffet was good - and the overall price very reasonable. Also lots of parking.
The buses into Santander are frequent and very comfortable and cheap - stops either in front of sports ground or at the seminario a couple of roundabouts away. Santander is a great place and the area around is lovely.

Room Tip: Ask about the air conditioning.

Finding Chateau La Roca was a bit tough even with sat nav, but thankfully I'd looked at the ariel view on their web site so knew how to get to it from the autovia junction.
Room was great, simple, clean. It was also totally wheelchair accessible as Beatrice had said on the phone when booking. Nice smellies in the bathroom too.
60 euros for a double room on a busy end of summer holiday weekend.

Used this hotel as a stop over after disembarking from the ferry in Santander early evening. Road works in the town made following the directions awkward although if you follow signs for S20 and leave at junction 2 it is really easy to find. Ideally situated for leaving on the motorway network as you are outside the main town and almost in the countryside.
Loads of free parking as it is in a quiet residential area, make sure you fill up at the Shell garage next to the hotel - cheapest we saw on journey right down to Seville.
Good food and reasonble prices, locals will come and practice their English
