Parador De Siguenza4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We were a group of nearly 90 people on a classic car tour parking was fine outside the castle. All of the staff were extremely dour, to get a drink at the bar was impossible. Even though there were 20/25 people waiting in the bar they had only one person serving at a very slow pace. The service in the restaurant was poor and the food of poor quality. The breakfast was good though.
Amazing parador in a restored castle/fort which was destroyed during the Spanish civil war.It overlooks a small medieval town with an interesting very old cathedral. We used it as a last stop before Madrid airport which is under an hour down the motorway. A lovely relaxing end to a holiday.
Travelling on our return journey from visiting friends on the Algave we decided to treat ourselves to a stay at the Parador. The only good part was the actual building! This was the 6th hotel on our round trip and possibly the least favourite. Some of our stays were a mere 2 star establishment, but far outweighed our stay at the Parador.
Very heavy meals with portions that were way too large. If you ate the whole white bean soup appetizer you'd never be able to eat your entree. Leg of lamb entree was extremely rich and feel of the bone at a touch. Couldn't complain about the taste. The large pile of potatoes had no taste of its own. The pan seared pork with honey sauce had a good taste but halfway through you could tell it had been cooked in took much butter. It overwhelmed the nice honey flavor. For desert I had the sponge cake with chocolate. Disaster. I think someone tried to soak up a flood with the cake. It weighed about 2 lbs. Not what I needed at that point. Service was fair. The room itself was spectacular. Three steps down from our experience at Parador de Alcaniz the night before. That was amazing.
Siguenza paradore has a spectacular location on the top of a hill overlooking the town. Ideally located in the centre of Spain if one is travelling south and need a stopover. The castle itself is spectacular with a large galleried courtyard and wonderful views around the local countryside. We were a bit unfortunate as there were several conferences in progress so the bars and restaurants were busy, but the stark coped very well. A short energetic walk into town gets you to the local bars and restaurants. The walk back up the hill to the paradore is a challenge and will certainly compensate for any excesses of food and drink! Maybe a taxi is advisable! Staff and service was as good as ever, the usual Paradore standard.
Our first parador visit. On half board. An impressive building fully in line with our expectations. Bedroom fine, and we felt very lucky having one of the very few with a balcony; this overlooked the central courtyard. Parking free, easy and convenient. However our enjoyment was very much impaired by what seemed to be two separate coach parties. At dinner they barely overlapped and, to be fair, they were not noisy in the way that large groups often are. But it did mean that the serving staff seemed to be under undue pressure. Breakfast was much worse. Needing to make a prompt start, we approached the dining room within minutes of its stated 08.00 opening time to be confronted with largely occupied tables and very large queues for food. We had to retreat. We returned about 40 minutes later. The queues had abated, except for the coffee (served by a single machine inadequate to the task of a room full of people trying it out), but the food was also seriously depleted and it took some time for it to be properly replaced. Further, the wifi did not wot know in our room, in the courtyard or 20metres from reception, and feebly even at reception. It worked well only in the dining room, where we had other priorities and concerns.
The castle is impeccable, the restoration work is impeccable and well suited to the style of the building. We had a drink on the patio which is pleasant, quiet and well worth visiting. Apparently the rooms are very nice, but on this occasion we didnt stay, but I would plan a night there next time. The town itself is clean and the buildings have been restored well, and there are several good restaurants.
We stayed only one night in the Parador at Siguenza as we were moving onto Madrid the next day. The Parador is gorgeous and a lot of work has taken place to keep it feeling authentic and respect it's past. It works well as a luxury hotel, and we stayed in a suite. The room and sitting room was spacious as was the generous bathroom. Interesting point was that there wasn't ant coffee or tea making facilities in the room. This was different completely to the Parador we stayed in the previous 3 nights at Cuenca, which had a Nescafe Coffee Pod machine in room. When you wake early, a coffee can be a great start for the day before breakfast - but this was the only challenge in a very pleasant stay. We ate in the "bar" area and enjoyed a share platter, which again was very good. Plenty of parking at the venue immediately outside and the small city of Siguenza is a real delight to walk around. A great place we'd recommend.
Well how about great location, views and atmosphere. The parking is on cobbles and can be outside the walls. The rooms are large, clean and well equipped. The whole place is unbelievable and a short walk from the town if you want to venture out. The food was great and the restaurant is a stunning venue.
Great breakfast. I did not eat dinner at this parador. Room had a view of the courtyard and nice balcony. Parking was limiter inside but available nearby. Close to village. Easy walk to plaza. Decent rooms. Beds are low to the floor.
