    Beds were a little firm. Location appears quite safe but you have to get in the car if you want to go for a stroll.

    Very large and clean room. Easy to find with ample parking close to Santander and a beautiful section of coastline. Very friendly reception staff. Will stay here again on our next ferry trip.

    The hotel is on top of a supermarket, and at night (if you have a fine ear) you can hear the humming of the cooling machines. The bar underneath is not the best place where to have breakfast. Just across the road, there is a Sports Bar, which is way nicer, cleaner, friendlier and has a wider offer.

    Roomier than most, easy parking, and really friendly staff. They gave us great tips about things to do around.

    Nothing around it but if it's just an overnight stop, it doesn't matter

    Everything. Great place to spend the night if you have just arrived on the ferry. The attached bar/restaurant serves great food

    Slow WiFi (suffice only for simple browsing), room is not as soundproof as one would like, AC is controlled remotely and one must ask to adjust the temperarure every time it is required, room is cleaned properly only at the beginning of the stay, no laundry room at the hotel.

    Comfortable bed, helpful staff, reasonably good location, room has a mini-fridge.

    Getting there from the car ferry can be a bit tricky due to the ongoing road improvements. A satnav is recommended. Getting to the ferry port is very straightforward and well signposted.

    We stay in this Hotel on a regular basis. We own a property in southern Spain and at least once a year we travel there from the UK with our car on the ferry to Santander. Chateau la Roca is in a very convenient position to the motorway system. Also there is a Restaurant/ Bar attached to the Hotel where you have a choice of dining in the evening and Breakfast for Hotel guests is available either by booking in advance or you can just get what you want in the bar.

    Friendly, excellent staff. Huge really comfortable bed in a spacious room with excellent shower. Quiet. Free parking on site. Sat nav took us to wrong end of the very long road. A hint - the hotel is near the centre of Sancibrian immediately next to the Shell petrol station.

    Wifi was slow: 1.19 Mbit/s down, 1.27 Mbit/s up. Air conditioning could not be reasonably changed; it was either too cold and fan speed too high or had to turn it off in which case it got too warm and stuffy in the room. Overall the feel was a bit tired and the hotel was not very new.

    Nice room and bathroom with the necessary facilities.

    Building was given over to other purposes. Hotel only seemed to be on first floor. Location unattractive. In the middle of nowhere. Room overlooked supermarket car park. Faceless. No restaurant facilities.

    Comfortable, big, if somewhat generic room.

    Breakfast at adjoining, but separate, bar/restaurant Aida was basic and overpriced at Eu 8.55 though convenient.

    Handy for stop from Santander evening ferry. Large, spacious room with excellent, modern bathroom with large shower and accessories provided. Large, comfortable beds with effective room air conditioning. Room safe with refundable Eu20 deposit. Nearby (walkable) bar/restaurant La Tucho was superb; very good food, reasonable prices, large portions (share puddings!), very personable staff and English spoken.

    DIstance from the city was 10 minutes driving,but was a very quiet suburb,

    After much rain the hotel was cosy, warm and homely. There is a supermarket next door. THe reception was helpful and efficient. Although not 5star, it is very clean and comfortable and value for money.

    Clean, comfortable hotel set in a quiet suburb on edge of Santander. Its not a Chateau, its a modern motel! Good restaurant bar attached to the hotel and a shop on the corner. Petrol station opposite and a few other cafe bars in the neighbourhood. Short walk to the coast with its impressive cliffs and beaches. Hotel & restaurant staff friendly & helpful. But you may want to keep your phrase book handy as only limited English spoken by receptionists. However if you have a real problem you can speak to the very nice manageress whose English is excellent.

    There was ants in the room... That is something they must take care of carefully I believe

    Location was stunning, next to all general amenities, bars, deli, and a petrol station, which made easier my way back home. The best thing... Parking outside, there is plenty, and I could see my motorbike through my room window!

    The location was ok but not that picturesque, but the hotel itself made up for this and it was only a short drive into Santander.

    Friendly and helpful staff. Easy parking. Huge beds, most powerful shower I have ever experienced! We requested two rooms close to each other and we given adjoining rooms, which was great. Modern decor, spacious rooms. Short drive from ferry. Look forward to returning here.
