Paradores & Hotel Holidays in Spain

Find your perfect getaway

If you like the idea of a Spanish holiday but don't like the idea of commercialised Mediterranean resorts, allow us to introduce you to a very different kind of Spanish destination - a whole new world just waiting to be explored, just a relaxing ferry journey from Britain. Northern Spain could not be more different from the Costas - a magical land still proud of its local traditions with dramatic mountains, lush green countryside, wide open plains and glorious, golden beaches.

However if you are looking for warmer climates than our selection of hotels in Central Spain or Andalucia may just be what you are after with world heritage sites such a Segovia or Salamanca to sun-baked villages overlooking clear blue seas.

Whether you want a pretty seafront location, a blissful rural retreat, something a little more unusual, or simply somewhere to lay your head, you're sure to find a hotel to cater for your every need.

And when choosing to stay with us, you can be sure that quality is key, and that each and every hotel - large and small - has been inspected by our expert team, to ensure they provide high standards and value for money.

Why choose a hotel break in Spain?

  • Ideal for all lengths of stay and budgets
  • Attractive locations
  • Breakfast included in the price
  • 7 nights for the price of 6 at many hotels
  • Children under 12 stay free at a large selection of hotels

If it's just a quick getaway you're after, or you don't want to venture too far, you'll find an excellent range of hotels within an easy drive or walk of our ferry terminal in Santander. Many of these are particularly suitable if you're travelling on foot.

Parador hotels in Spain

Paradores are a chain of government-backed hotels created to offer visitors luxury surroundings and a unique ambiance. Some are purpose-built, but many others are former castles, manor houses, monasteries and palaces with a rich and fascinating history attached to them.

All of these hotels have been lovingly restored to their former elegance but with all the modern comforts you could desire on a luxury holiday break. As you would expect, cuisine is of an exceptionally high standard throughout so we have also negotiated half-board rates at these establishments should you wish to enjoy a leisurely dinner at the end of a long day sightseeing. These are places to truly indulge and be pampered.

Mix and match

Our holidays, just like our ferry routes, offer brilliant freedom and flexibility. You can mix and match any of our self-catering accommodation or hotels, choose a standard or superior room and B&B or half-board (where available) - so why not combine a stay in Cantabria with a few days in Pais Vasco, or spend a week in Spain followed by some time in Portugal or France and then take a leisurely cruise or drive home? Anything is possible, just call us on 0330 159 4500.
