convenient for Ferry But far enough out of town to be able topark
The hotel was easy to reach from the airport and the parking was close by and free. At first, from the outside, the building doesn't look nice at all, however, the interior is ok, the room was very spacious and the bathroom clean and in good state. The breakfast is barely sufficient. It is served in a kind of bar. The tables are very low: they can be confortable for a chat and a cup of tea, not for breakfast.
Arrived on Sunday so nothing happening but thats not the Hotels fault. Only meals available are Bar type meals and breakfast is Basic but ok. Only problem is the Dining are has smoking and is not smoke free which is a bit off putting when eating.
3km from the airport, 7 km from city centre. Plenty of eating places and bars in close proximity, plus hotel serves meals. street parking plus quite a number of spaces in the church parking area - but difficult should there be a wedding in progress.
everything was great the family who run the hotel are more than helpful and the rooms are great and really clean the breakfast was above and beyond what you expect total value for money all round would recommend there was nothing that we did not like about this hotel
Attentiveness of staff, Cleanliness of room, Breakfast Availability of local places to eat; there was only one
Superb apartments. Excellent facilities. Beautiful environment. Lovely family business.
Excellent staff, very helpful. Excellent room, clean, modern, quality fittings, very pleasing. A welcoming pot of tea on arrival on a stormy night. Complementary Cava and chocolates on arrival. Gift of cakes on departure. Dog friendly. We recomend this hotel. Nothing to dislike.
Hotel staff spoke very fluently French. Nice room, good breakfast. Hotel staff gave very good tips about things to visit in the environment. We got a bottle of cava when we arrived and cakes when we left.
I loved the familyar atnosphere and the design and the quality of the rooms.
Beautiful hotel, very nice infrastructure No language knowledge other than Spanish and this beautiful hotel was almost deserted, almost no guests (low season maybe ?)
Total comfort in every respect. Huge 2m wide double bed, luxury bathrooms, balcony overlooking the spa. Superb and attentive staff. Easy parking. Superb value for money (admittedly we stayed for and overnight Sunday/Monday visit, which may be less expensive that weekday reservations). Sadly the food did not live up to the accommodation in terms of culinary standards. "Disappointing" sums it up.
Staff & Restaurant excellent. Easy Secure underground parking. Hotel set in beautiful grounds, unfortunately we were on an overnight stop so were unable to avail the many services in the Spa. No as we were only there for one night everything was excellent.
Quality of the hotel. Despite being in the town it was tranquil within the hotel and grounds. Spa was separate facility.
The high standard generally. No pool facilities available when we arrived Sunday afternoon and an 18 Euro per person charge to use them the next moening.
Very nice room for Spanish standards.
Location uninsoiring. Restaurant the worst experience ever had in a hotel, poor service , poor quality food,poor [resentation horrible ambience. Restaurant was apalling.
The rooms were very clean, the breakfast was excellent, the mineral water in the minibar was free. Beaches and tourist attractions were quite far from the hotel
Very comfortable, air conditioning was very good. Nice size outdoor pool, good breakfasts. Outdoor pool not heated, no English translations anywhere, pricing of extras isn't clear.
Design of hotel lovely spar and pools nice rooms
It does what is says on the tin. It is clean and very close to the beach. If I go back to Santander I will not stay in Somo, where the hotel is located. It is too far away and there is not night transport.
Cute little place, friendly staff, the price was right and the town was nice and quiet. No complaints!
stoped off on our way back home for two nights before catching the ferry from Santander to Portsmouth.Exellent location nice quiet town.
Excellent location for seeing the town and local coast. We particularly wanted an evening meal in the hotel, by unfortunate coincidence the kitchen was closed that evening only, but they willingly accomodated us and we enjoyed an excellent diner. No!
We only stayed one night on the last day of our holiday as we were returning home by ferry the next day. I chose this hotel, which is situated across the bay from the ferry port, because of it's on-site parking which proved to be very convenient. Reception staff were helpfull. No food available, probably because of the time of year and low occupancy. However there were restaurants nearby.
center of town noisy
Good Value, Close to the beach location, rooms kept clean Rooms a bit small, only had two twin beds and should have had a double.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They spoke english well and made the effort to communicate with you in English. They couldn't do enough for you. The room was really lovely and very well appointed. The evening food has been described in your reviews as 'disappointing' but I would say that it was rustic. The buffet breakfast was very good, they even offered bacon and eggs which we took advantage of, but a little expensive at 12 euros. I would throughly recommend this hotel to anyone. nothing!
Excellent staff - friendly and helpful, really nice rooms. Didn't have the hotel breakfast but the cafeteria served delicious tortilla de patatas. Nothing negative comes to mind.
Extreme friendliness of the staff
The rooms were extremely comfortable and stylish. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. Although not applicable to us, some people may find the uphill walk from Somo village to the hotel difficult if they have mobility issues or if very hot and have children.
Lovely location. Great decor. Loveley receptionist. Worst dinner ever served to us. Semi frozen, limp meat with frozen chips incompletely cooked. Rude staff. No apologies on complaint.
Staff were very helpful and professional. Did not eat in restaurant so cannot comment but all other aspects of this hotel were excellent. Very easy access to beach, mountains and Santander.
The hotel had a feeling of luxury and excellent cleanliness. Staff were discreet but very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent, and although a bit pricey, still gave super value.
This was a great hotel, the staff couldn't do enough for us and they all speak English if only a little which is great when my Spanish is not so good. We found the food to be of a very good standard and talking to other people they found it the same.We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you
Great beach in Somo for surfing, running, sunbathing etc only 5 minuted walk from the hotel.
A great base for beautiful Somo beach. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially front desk staff. We were impressed by how many staff spoke English even though the hotel caters mainly to Spanish guests. Would have appreciated a minibar or small refrigerator in the room. Bottled water should be provided as there is nowhere nearby to purchase water or drinks outside of the hotel bar. Beach towels would be appreciated although we were not stopped from using the hotel towels for the beach.
very nice people who worked hard to bridge the language gap.
Peace and quiet. The building and furnishings. Location (seaside;countryside&mountains).
very friendly, place was full of charm
The little Spa is just wonderful - it should just be cleaned more often. The staff was extremly nice and helpful and the hotel is lovely and quiet located - just perfect. Breakfast is very nice for the price. The hotel is an ancient house so we had to get used to the noises an old house makes (and some of the guestes).
Very nice hotel and rooms decorated in typical old style with everything you need. Very romantic, quiet and great service giving us some good tips for food and a great beach. I would definately recommend it. The only thing missing would be a pool in the garden and perhaps a wider breakfast choice with some local delicacies.
I like all about this Posada It is in the middle of nowhere. But I had car so it's not the problem.
Good location Spanish bad habit of not eating an evening meal before 9.00pm
Fantastic building to stay in, very quite location, however we where the only guests at the time, friendly staff bit difficult to find, due to poor directions and lack of signs
We enjoyed the welcome and helpfulness of Mara Alfonso who was very helpful and made our stay very special in fact we returned three weeks later for a further night. The stay was very relaxing in a special place.
nice restored historical building. Excellent breakfast.Friendly staff. B and B feeling. No parking problems.Very interesting area to discover. In the village of Liendo thre is not much to do but Laredo and other interesting places are minutes driving away
Posada Los Gallos was extremely good. The room was decorated to an very high standard - the beds very comfortable and huge! The food was excellent and good value for money. The location was exellent for visiting nearby towns and beaches and also for travelling to/ from the airport or ferry port. A shower ( other than a hand held one) would have been a distinct advantage in our room. There was a jacuzzi which was great but not very pratical. Food being available before 9.15pm in the evening - I appreciate that Spanish meal times are later than normal but if they are accepting foreign visitors a little flexiblity would have been good. The only other slight issue was that nobody spoke any english. Again I appreciate "why should they"? but if accepting English speaking guests a smatttering of english would be an advantage to match our smattering of Spanish.
The hotel is in an old building which has recently been renovated, the room we were allocated had a sloping roof and high windows but for not a lot extra we were offered a suite. Well worth the money, 4 poster bed, terrace and excellent bathroom. The renovation work is of the highest standard. Evening meal was good value for the set menu. A little isolated for the time of year, would be lovely in the summer.
Muy tranquilo y silencioso. El personal muy amable -
Setting very good. Old nature of hotel but modernized. Friendly owner and staff Design of on-suite bathroom in eaves of house
A delightful place to stay. Great ambiance and good food.
Small hotel. helpful friendly staff. pleasant gardens. free parking. accept dogs for a charge. Lack of air conditioning, having to open windows to keep cool led to lots of mosquito bits. breakfast poor.
Location, design of public rooms and garden, informality, nearness to stunning beaches but not far from autovia Our room could have done with some refurbishment: worn paintwork, broken bathroom fittings, bare light bulbs. Evening meal needs improvement: good value for money but more "assembled" than cooked; and tinned pineapple with cream from a can is not a proper dessert/postre in our opinion!
Location and it was so different
A beautiful location, with accommodation tastefully decorated and comfortable. Our one night stay in May was a pleasure. The owner, Maria, was most welcoming, and provided a lovely room for my my wife, myself and our two dogs. The evening meal and breakfast were excellent and the drive to the ferry at Santander a mere 30 minutes. NO.
The superior double room was beautiful. Setting of the hotel - wonderful The welcome was not good. The satff did nto seem bothered that you were coming as a guest in their hotel. At dinner on the sunday night we ordered the set menu 55 euros plus tax, including wine. The small 5 courses were supposed to represent thier whole menu. The meal was one of the worst we had even eaten. Please contact us for more info.
Excellent rooms, very quiet,good facilities In spite of informing staff that we needed to leave early, nobody in reception/breakfast area until 8.45. Outside gates locked, All telephones switched on to answering systems. not very safe in case of emergencies!
Quiet. Staff were very supportive. Interesting historic property. Food (evening meal) not as good as expected..
A very special Chateau Hotel containing a wealth of clever design and art treasures. Wonderful stonework and woodwork incorporated in the very sympathetic restoration to retain original atmosphere. A very warm welcome and personal touches everywhere. Excellent security. Well located for UK ferries from/to Bilbao & Santander. Only having to leave so soon.
brand new facility with friendly staff, very cheap breakfast , modern rooms and pool. no mini bar installed yet. excellent hotel for pass-thru on a 2 day car journey thru spain.
Excellent welcome and very helpful staff (Alexandro) - Closed to beaches - Very clean - Good breakfast - Free parking The only weak point was the view from our room in front of the garage but anyway people are outside the hotel so, it doesn't really matter...
Staff friendliness and welcome.
smell aroun the hotel (cows)
The location and personal were very nice. The issue is not "did not like", but it would be nice to have more pillows available and more shower gel.
Staff were very friendly. Liked the fact that alongside continental breakfast you could order additional cups of coffee without additional charge.
A superb hotel in a lovely quiet location, Alejandro the manager is an absolute gem and made our stay very special, nothing was too much trouble. The location is quiet even in season, and as the hotel does not have a restaurant please be aware that the few local reataurants all keep Spanish opening hours.i.e.they don't open for dinner until 9.30 in the evening.
Excellent. friendly service of hotel manager Alexandro - he was extremely helpful, pleasant and nothing was too much trouble
Every aspect was excellent. None
the hotel had only a few guests so was very quiet and we were looked after well. if there was lots of guests the rooms would be noisy as very little soundproofing & breakfast would be a little small.
The staff were very welcoming and cheerfull. The location is very good being near shops, restaurants and the beautiful beach. the breakfast, there is not as much choice as expected.
Beach, old sity of Loredo, restourans, etc, Very nice hotel and friendly staff, but they have produce air conditions in rooms!!!
Quiet location but only 2 mins from beach and 5 mins from the town centre . No lift - would have been easier with the luggage.
Lovely hotel with very pleasnt staff. We would like to go back there and and stay for longer. Hotel is really nicely designed and very well kept. One of the best if not the best hotel on our three week trip cycling through Spain and France.
Huge room, nice staff, free parking along side and near to the beach but an easy walk to the town centre I booked at 50 euros for a single room, when I got there people just turning up got quoted 37,50. The lounge area is a bit shabby
Room was acceptable but unnecessarily hot. Ridiculous window shutter system and flimsy curtains may be ideal for Spanish afternoon siestas, but not much use at night, given no air conditioning. We didn't like Laredo. The old part is lovely but very small and not much in it. The new part is like Clacton. Not somewhere we'll return to.
Easy parking in quiet road. Near beach and town centre.Lovely balcony outside bedroom. Good for an overnight stay. Bathroom nicely fitted but very tight for space. A tiled pillar in centre of room and large door made getting in the bath/shower quite a challenge.
they recommended the restaurant/cafe we used for supper - very Spanish & nice - PS we were only pasing through Laredo ! Non
We just stayed for one night, it was ideal. Great location, close to the beach and restaurants. And lots of free parking in the street.
I liked the staff best. Wasn't there for long, so can't say much about it. The hotel was good for the price and really near the very pleasant beach. The place reminded me of Worthing on the south coast of England where my parents retired to! Gentile but slightly gone to seed, nice and quiet, conservative. Very flat, Worthing. I'm sure it was a one-off but I didn't like the central heating being jammed on all night in my room. Slept in bed nearest the window with the window open, which was ok. I also didn't like the curtains being of such thin material. Felt I could be seen straight through them! The breakfast was all stuff in sealed cellophane packages ,even the croissant! Still, it was edible enough, and at that cheap price who should grumble?
Clean, well-run hotel. Good continental breakfast. Lovely stylish tiled bathroom. Warm and clean rooms. Good value. Second row back from beach. No sea view and room was a little on small size but would still recommend this hotel.
Usual quality and service at Paradores None
Return from Portugal to board the ferry at Santurtzi the following day. We knew what to expect, as this was our second visit.
Good sized rooms, bed very comfortable, well equipped and everything works. Restaurant and bar both good, though food at the bar is rather limited. Nice outdoor pool, indoor pool and gym handy for wetter times! Great location for Bilbao/Guggenheim and beaches Not much alternative nearby to eating in hotel restaurant
Excellent hotel, beautifull location well signposted off the main drag.Only problem there is nowhere in the village to eat and the restraunt is rather expensive.
Our room was large and comfortable. The cafeteria was friendly and had a reasonable selection of food and drink. The outdoor pool was fine The main restaurant was highly priced and the cooking was poor. It was difficult to get information about local events.
Large, well appointed bedrooms and public rooms. Good food and value for money.
The sauna was a nice surprise! It is not easy to find a real Finnish style sauna abroad. The air-conditioning works well. The hotel is pretty humid due to the spa department. The wi-fi did not work at all.
For its size, the facilities are excellent with a good outdoor swimming pool and a sauna/jacuzzi complex inside. Private patio area was a bonus - even if overlooked by adjoining properties. Breakfast choice was poor. Noise from the road and/or surrounding properties could sometimes be a problem.
Very nice staff, good view from the room and close to a nice beach
Away from bustle of Santander but within easy drive. Very quiet location but only a short walk from bars and restaurants. Beach 5 mins walk. Plenty of parking. Adequate breakfast, more food than we could eat. A bit of a language problem. He would have preferred us to pay in cash, but did eventually take the card.
Great location and views from the hill outside the Somo centre but not too far away to walk to the beaches & restaurants. Clean rooms, great service by staff & good breakfast. Maybe a bit noisy location alongside the road but nothing bad, some of the toilets in other rooms were leaking and giving noise :)
Corteous staff. The best view of the Santander Bay. Very clean.
Friendleness of everyone,and everything was clean. Door seems to be locked all the time,so was quite sometime before able to check in.
Perfect location in a walking distance from the beach, quiet, romantic - ideal for the family leasure. Owners run the hotel themselves, very friendly and helpful. Good value for money.
The place was spotless, and the breakfast very good. The owner went out of his way to be helpful.
We were made to feel welcome. There was a lift. Breakfast was tasty. Staff were helpful and informative. No, but your instructions of how to get there were not helpful as they did not take into account the one-way system. We had to stop 3times to ask locals for directions. A mention of uphill /downhill would have helped as street names given did not exist.
We just could not say anything bad ten out of ten yours gordon and lesley Sun did not shine
All the facilities worked well and the staff were all very helpfull as we did not speak much Spanish Your Sat Nav directions sent us to a lane up near the petrol station at the end of the main road!
hotel was very confortable, spacious rooms, clean and modern design restaurant attendants were consistenly rude. a/c did not work properly.
the spa jets were definitely the best part
For a 4 stars hotel the breakfast and restaurant were very poor.Room was large and beautiful however: the double bed was very small, it was not possible to keep open the window of the bathroom, the shower did not work properly, no minibar in the room, the safe box did not work. I think this should not happen in a 4 stars hotel.
Large airy cool clean quiet room poor service in buffet dining room
a good family run hotel, in pleasant surroundings.convenient for both ferries to UK
This hotel was fantastic value for money a great over night stop over. The hotel owner and his wife made us feel really welcome, a nice breakfast included in our price.
good value and clean. good location for traveling on to next destination
Very central location within 2 minutes walking distance of all shops, bars and restaurants.
Simple unsophisticated hotel set in a small rural village. Staff (and local restuarants) spanish speaking only but all very helpful. Rooms basic but comfortable beds and all very clean. Elderly locals carrying hoes and scythes etc to their garden plots, Alltogether charming and very good value and we will stay there again. 20 minutes from Santander and 45 from Bilbao Nothing to dislike unless you want local nightlife
