    For what we paid for the accommodation we weren't expecting much of a breakfast. And that's exactly what we got, bread, spread & coffee. This might be fine with the Spanish visitors but we doubt too many English would be impressed. Stay here but eat out.

    Quiet location, genuinely lovely position set slightly up from the village centre but no more than 3-4 minutes walk to restaurants etc. Ample off road parking. Our room was large, sparsely furnished, however the bathroom was very acceptable with a great shower. No complaints, lots of hot water. Staff were very pleasant and gave good advice regards best restaurant for an evening meal.

    Would have preferred a little earlier start to breakfast, with almost 1000km journey south to follow! Missed ‘traditional ham & cheese’ at breakfast .

    Excellent location to visit Santillana, with nice view over the Colegiata and countryside. Area of lawn to enjoy a rest. Easy but cobbled walk into square for drink and food options. Not easiest of access off the main road going out of the village. Very friendly hosts and good communicators viz. email responses with ferry delays.

    You need very specific directions to find this hotel. Signage to it is non existent. You need to drive in from the northern side of the town. Trying to drive through the old town is a nightmare. The breakfast was meager and poor by Spanish standards..

    Clean and comfortable accommodation close to the centre of the old town.

    We would visit here again. Small tips for any other visitors - The hotel is within the restricted area and we didn't realise we just needed to dial a code into the parking barrier. It was a little unclear as an English speaker how to attract attention of the guest house staff to check in.

    Good option to stay on a budget
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Triple Room
    • Stayed 1 night

    The rooms are really small, I mean 10-12 sq.m for three persons is really not enough. Wifi in the room was not functioning (the devices simply could not connect to the network). Although every room is said to have views from the window, ours (on the first floor) was facing small inner courtyard. The soundproofing is very poor. There is no communal area, even in the garden at the side facing the town (and offering indeed good views from above). The breakfast is very modest - just a croissant and a toast.

    The location is about 300 m from the central square, there is own and free parking. Good value for the services included. The guesthouse is located slightly uphill from the town with the perfect views around.

    There was nothing to dislike.

    Brilliant location just a few metres from the main square. Car parking was a huge plus point - just make sure you program your satnav to lead you in from the edge of town camp site location and not through the historic main square which is busy most of the time. Excellent value for money - a really good find.

    Can't understand why this property is rated 9.2. Its was difficult to find, maybe should have done my homework! OK for an overnight stop, basic room, wouldn't want to stay any longer. The breakfast is poor, worst breakfast we've had on our trips to Spain; bread, jam, cake and coffee; cake for breakfast? Also there wasn't a hairdryer in our room.

    The Posada is within walking distance to the village, bars restaurants etc. Private parking. Good location.

    The mattress in 102 was like nails. I awoke throughout the night sore. Breakfast was bread and jam with coffee. My wife is wheat intolerant and when she asked was there any fruit or cereal the female owner said 'non' and left. Santilliana del mar is a strange place that we couldn't and didn't warm to.

    Plenty of parking and a nice welcome by the male owner.

    Posada La Solana is located just a 5-10 minute walk from the old town section of Santillana del Mar. The hotel is quaint and quite lovely, inside and out. Our room and bed were comfortable, and the bathroom is quite modern. La senora was friendly and helpful, but we had some trouble communicating due to her lack of English and our limited Spanish. Breakfast was good, with excellent orange juice, but some sort of protein would have been nice. Overall, we had an enjoyable 2-night stay and would choose Posada La Solana again if we ever return to Santillana del Mar.
