Quiet. Staff were very supportive. Interesting historic property. Food (evening meal) not as good as expected..
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!
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.
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.
Muy tranquilo y silencioso. El personal muy amable -
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.
The fact that it is near the beach
From first entrance everything was lovely, clean, friendly, and relaxing. A little difficult to find (we hired a car) but apart from that the hotel is in a nice location 5 min walk from a beautiful beach which also has some surf and a surf hire shop. The hotel charge for car parking - but parking is not an issue as there are plenty of spaces in the roads around the hotel which are free. The pool is small but very relaxing and quite clean. The staff are very helpful, our room was cleaned daily to a high standard. The hotel does have a buffet restaurant which offers three courses and all the food is very nice, at around 20 euro per head this was good value for money, particularly as there are very few restaurants (let alone nice restaurants) near by or in Noja itself. The only negative regarding the hotel restaurant is that it does feel quite clinical and bright...dont go expecting a nice candle lit romantic meal. The spa, hmm how can I describe it....interesting! the spa is 18 euro per person extra and lasts for 1 hour, in which your time is split between various spa type activities e.g. sauna, steam... its not hugely relaxing but is good fun! especially if you happen to get the nutty spanish spa attendant that led us around, who didnt speak a word of English but continued trying to explain everythying to us anyway...very funny! Overall, excellent - and we will be returning next year.
Comfortable room. Spa circuit included was unusual but fun and relaxing. Location pretty ugly with ugly empty buildings around in late June. No view of beach though beach is lovely.Hard to find as all buildings look the same and no signs.
I did like the balcony, the fridge inside the room and the private car park.
No remarks. If you can book a promotion with spa, don't hesitate. The town doesn't have a lot to offer.
Free Wifi, good size and clean room Only Spanish speaking staff at reception desk.
Nice hotel at a resonable price. Near the beach, very quite town 15-20 mins drive from Santander. Perfect for relaxing few days and not to far to drive form near attractions.
All, it´s very beautiful. It has a interesting spa and employes are very nice. Also it has a good breakfast, very complete and clean. it was very good situation, near the beach. We had a good experience. The garage is very complicate and difficult.
Very pleasant stay. Clean hotel. Close to beach. Family friendly (for young and older children). Good food - went out of the way to cater to our dietry requirements. n/a
Excellent room. Restaurant very nice and buffet dinners were good value - especially for big eaters ! From the description it appeared that the hotel was just across from the beach. Not true ! The beach was 7/8 minutes walk away. Parking is very restricted throughout Noja so you have to pay to use the hotel car park !
The town of Isla, Spain is somewhat hard to find, but worth the effort! The Hotel Astuy is located directly on the beach, with beautiful panoramic views of the ocean and mountains. Rooms were new and nicely appointed (granite counters, whirlpool tubs, etc). Beds were large, new and comfortable. Hotel staff spoke English, which was very helpful. The hotel needs coin-operated guest laundry facilities.
View from room. Reasonable rates. Surly waiter in restaurant who seemed annoyed that we had appeared. We walked out and had dinner at another hotel restaurant 200 yards away. The menu at Hotel Astuy limited and very expensive. We would only stay here again for the (albeit tired) accommodation.
The location of the hotel was superb and the staff were very helpful. The room was comfartable, clean and with a balcony with a sea view.
Great position in apartment block with lovely views from large balcony. Comfortable - even the pull-out beds in lounge area were very comfortable. Replacement linen and towels whenever we needed them. Very handy for beaches and we were, in fact, overlooking one of them. The teenagers loved the jacuzzi bath!(There was a good shower, too.) Overlooking the beach carpark which we enjoyed during the day as it was fun to see people coming and going. At night, however, it was very noisy as youngsters would hang around in the early hours of the morning.
Small typical Spanish hotel, good breakfast buffet. Lovely village with plenty of places to eat. Short distance to beatiful coast/beaches and other places of interest. No English as most small Northern holels but good interpretation of sign language.
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.
Staff friendy no
a good family run hotel, in pleasant surroundings.convenient for both ferries to UK
Very central location within 2 minutes walking distance of all shops, bars and restaurants.
good value and clean. good location for traveling on to next destination
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
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 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.
Excellent. friendly service of hotel manager Alexandro - he was extremely helpful, pleasant and nothing was too much trouble
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.
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...
smell aroun the hotel (cows)
Staff friendliness and welcome.
Every aspect was excellent. None
the location near to excellent beaches The staff ranged from indfifferent to unhelpful. The beds were uncomfortable. The rooms at the side of the hotel suffered from the smells from the kitchen. Parking at weekends was challenging. On the last morning I found my car in the hotel car park covered in cow dung. The staff did not seem to regard this as a problem and gave minimal assistance. It would seem that the location of the hotel has resulted in a significant lack of effort and hospitality. The tennis court mentioned on the web site is not a tennis court- the staff informed us that it is a gane simmiliar to tennis but we were not allowed to use it unless we hired their equipment.
Warm welcome, Staff in bar seemed reserved at first but with our poor attempt at Spanish soon became friendly and helpful. Meals excellent. Fantastic views over the white sandy beach. There is a smell and feeling of damp but this is understandable with the ocean so close. Very steep descent to hotel.
We spent excellent time: swiming in the Atlantic Ocean, walking on the hills surraunding beach. I is really beautiful hotel for rest and relax.
comfort and closeness of the beach
On arrival, we recieved a warm welcome, the rooms were kept spottlessly clean by staff that were always there when needed but never in your face. The location is fantastic. It took me a few days to figure out the times different menus were being served in the bar
Accommodation extremely cramped in attic room even though we were the only guests in hotel.
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.
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.
Quiet location but only 2 mins from beach and 5 mins from the town centre . No lift - would have been easier with the luggage.
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?
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.
they recommended the restaurant/cafe we used for supper - very Spanish & nice - PS we were only pasing through Laredo ! Non
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.
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
