We randomly chose this hotel as we needed a stop over before catching the ferry. OK to find by satnav, seems strange to drive through tiny residential streets though. Plenty of parking on site. Hotel has a colonial look about it. Inside there's 2 floors of rooms, 13 rooms in total, split between front and back. Front rooms would be...

What a find this hotel was. A training college for young people who want to join the hospitality trade. A great restaurant with a fabulous 22 euro lunch menu. The attention to detail was excellent as was the presentation and service. The rooms are all very clean and comfortable and lovely and warm. Will definitely come bAck.

What a lovely find. Set in lovely grounds, this gracious old building is now a boutique hotel and hospitality school combined creating an 'old-school' oasis in the city. The rooms are generously proportioned, decorated in keeping with the building's era and ours opened onto a generous terrace that ran the length of the building and overlooked the gardens. The weather...

Initially I thought this Hotel was far away from the attractions but it's actually a short walk down the hill into town and there are escalators to bring you all the way back up, so it turned out to be the perfect location. There are a few local bars near the hotel with great tapas and very cheap. Breakfast was...

I have already written a review about this lovely hotel. However, I just would like to clarify that the restaurant I mentioned was not called La Taxi, but LA RADIO. Excellent hotel, rooms were clean, just the floorboards did make a little bit of a noise, but nothing to complain about. The breakfast was adequate enough, and plenty of car...

We stayed here on our recent tour of Spain. It is not too far from the ferry terminal and very close to the outdoor escalators which lead you to the city centre. We had a little difficulty finding it with our Garmin but got there eventually, great car park inside a walled enclosure. Friendly welcome from the receptionist who had...

Fell on it by chance as our daughter is at the university and has a flat on the same road. The staff we encountered were efficient and friendly, the buffet breakfast was excellent and the room was warm and spotlessly clean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Las Carolinas Hotel-School is located within a plot of land with the same name, "Las Carolinas", and is managed by the Cantabrian Hotel and Catering Business Association. Young catering students and chefs are trained here. It occupies a XIX century restored mansion which has 500m2 gardens with two splendid magnolias and a thousand-year-old yew, among other specimens. It subsists in a truly rural environment within the city. Las Carolinas Hotel-School is also located at the top of a hill with spectacular views of Santander and is only 10 minutes away walking distance from the city centre. The Hotel School Project aims to endow the catering and hotel industry with qualified personnel. It seeks to do so by training professionals within the industry's different fields of work. All of the association's training activities are gathered within this single space. These training programmes have been designed to be both theoretical and practical, focusing on kitchen, dining room and hotel management. In order to offer adequate training, there is nothing better than a training centre where students can put the theory they have previously learnt into practice. The main building has thus been turned into a small hotel with 13 rooms and a dining room with a capacity for 40. It operates as a conventional hotel and catering business. The rooms at the Hotel School are decorated in s simple manner, with light wooden furniture and floors. They are all equipped with two beds or a double-bed, a desk, central heating, a bath, a hairdryer and amenities. To start the day off, a full buffet breakfast is also included within our accommodation price. During the academic period, a menu is offered at lunch time which includes an appetizer, a first course and a second course. On Thursday and Friday evenings we prepare a sampling menu. All meals must be booked in advance. All the services at the hotel school are offered by industry students and workers, with a special focus on personalization and quality. ... more   less
