Charming hotel in a Unique SettingPosted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff, modernized room, beautiful garden, excellent breakfast.
Cons: Getting to the hotel itself is a bit of mystery and took several attempts to locate. Amenities in the bathroom could be improved.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Casa Del Marques and Santillana Del Mar and wish we had more than one night to experience the village and the hotel's hospitality. The hotel itself has undergone a complete updating while retaining its old world charm. We in particular enjoyed the garden area sipping on local wines and the hospitality of the staff. The breakfast was a surprise as it was full breakfast rather than the continental that was expected. The village itself is like being in Disneyworld - a throw back to the middle ages but with many dining options and shops to browse. Highly recommended for anyone travelling around the northern coast.

Excellent hotel right on the centre of the town with private parking, payable. Fantastic service, bags taken to the room, receptionist very helpful with suggestions of places to eat, offered at own map without us asking. Room very comfortable and bathroom palatial with a spa bath wished we could have stayed another night! Excellent value for money we would go back anytime.

INCREDIBLE HOTELPosted Jun 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
This is a beautiful boutique hotel, the former palace of Marquis of Santillana. So luxurious, so cozy, so well decorated... everything is perfect. The bedroom had a canopy bed, wood floors and was very spacious and beautiful and so was the bathroom. It is located in the Main Street of Santillana del Mar. Very few times we find and hotel so beautiful to stay. Also, the price was very good and the parking only 11 euros per night. Breakfast was also very good. The attention of the front desk personnel can be only described as perfect customer service. Incredible hotel.

Charming HotelPosted Jun 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
Charming presentation with antiques and modern touches. Helpful staff and location in the middle of town. The location is a mixed blessing unless you are not bothered with driving down a crowded pedestrian mall to get there. I know it's done in Spain, but i found it disconcerting. Otherwise, this is a grat find.

Beautiful hotel in majical villagePosted May 15, 2014
Pros: Very clean and highly functional hotel within the old structure
We stayed two nights at the Casa del Marques while exploring the Picos de Europa. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly and hotel is a beautiful old structure with many antiques yet all the latest amenities. Santillana del Mar is a majical place and Picos is stunning. We hope to return someday

Very historic hotel and villagePosted Apr 10, 2014
Beautiful cobbled streets medieval church very picturesque. Street was noisy beneath bedroom window slight problem but as it was in Spanish we were not able to understand what was being said which made it bareable.

Beautiful hotel in a beautiful townPosted Oct 28, 2013
Cons: I cannot think of a single thing
Location: We used this hotel as a base to visit other small towns and villages in Asturias and Cantabria. We also saw the Altimira Caves museum.
We spent two nights here in the middle of October. We have nothing bad to say. The staff was wonderful and spoke very good English. The room was very comfortable and I wish we had more time to enjoy the beautiful back patio. The coffee was wonderful in the morning and breakfast was lovely. The history of the house was a plus...so old. I would definitely stay here again.

Thoroughly recommend this hotel. Great position on the main street with very atmospheric interior and garden area. Cannot praise more, but do not tell every one -They might put the price!

Good value considering the locationPosted Oct 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
It is in a historic mansion, when arrive late, it could be hard to find. There is not a visible sign from the side of the garage door. Rooms have thin wall, I could hear next door snoring all night. Even though it is a charming setting, the "imitation" art selected for the deco are not 100% right on, lacking uniqueness or unity. Some of the old furnitures look charming, but not comfortable. I did not know there were choices of pillow. The hard option that were used gave me a neck pain in the morning.
