Parador de Olite

Recent guest reviews

We were given a lovely welcome by Miguel who made us feel relaxed after a long drive. The Parador is full of character and charm though breakfasts fell a little short of those to be found in other Paradors. It’s location is perfect for the historical Royal Palace and various museums in the old town.

My first time in a parador hotel and I was not disappointed. This hotel is amazing. The lobby and restaurant are some part of a very old castle. The rooms are in a more modern part but still has a historical touch. Room was spacious and clean. Beds were ok. There was an enjoyable pario to enjoy the fresh air. Personnel was very nice. Food at the restaurant was great. Prices are very low compared to the quality of the hotel.

Best paradores experience yet, fab location though a little tricky to find. Reception staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Lovely area to sit next to dining room. Breakfast fine but not the best. Would. E good to have unsweetened yogurt at paradores

Being a regular Paradore visitor we always look forward to a great morning feast but unfortunately this one did not live up to the standards of the many different Paradores we have visited in the past. After booking bed and breakfast for an additional €20 + each we were only provided with a a small cold continental display and self made Kuerig coffee which we could have picked up at local cafe for a few euros. Even during very low occupancy we have always received fresh made coffee and a cooked to order breakfast and lovely pastries but in this location none were offered or received. Concerns raised with the front desk at the time were received with a “too bad, so sad” reply that we shouldn’t have booked the B&B option and a later email was never responded to. May stay at this location again but will not book breakfast without checking the actual offering first as we really felt we had wasted almost €50 for nothing.

Superb! What a lovely way to spend Christmas away from home. Delightful hotel in lovely village and we were made to feel really welcome. The palacio Real and the Wine museum were unexpectedly open and a real bonus.

This parador is inside the city walls of this beautiful little place , Olite , you enter through an archway and the parador entrance is in the middle of the square. Your can park and unload luggage for 15 minutes or so and there is free parking just outside. The rooms are ok as was breakfast , we also found most staff members not very helpful. We asked the receptionist which wineries we could visit and we were handed a list with phone numbers and told to ring them, we later asked the same girl if there was a hairdressers close by where my wife could have a wash and blow dry, once again she said I can give you some numbers , the lack of help was remarkable, we said we would like her to ring , which she did and arranged an appointment the following day , only to be charged 35€ for what normally costs approximately half that in most of Spain . The bar man in the cafeteria was lifeless as was the atmosphere, however drinks prices were good value . Not overly impressed apart from the building and location.

We only did the included breakfast which was very good. Do lunch next door at Restaurante Merindad. And tour the castle next door the other way. Recommend ddding this to another great Parador experience.

Parador de Olite is located in the village of Olite, in Navarra, where you can find one of the most impressive royal palaces restored with great care. Worth to visit. Parador itself was a Roman settlement adapted and annexed to the new palace later. Inside the Parador a visit to Salon de Viana is recommended. Rooms are in the line of these paradores, spacious, clean with all the amenities for a comfortable staying. The issues come with the eating, paradores in last year has chosen a strategy of industrializing their cooking, with marmitia restaurants line. We decided to have dinner there because we arrive late and weather did not invite to explore but definitely eating at paradores is something we tend to avoid. It is expensive for what it is delivered, a list of soulless dishes pre-cooked in some cases and nothing to remember. Also the stuff serving is not trained adequately, it is rare that they are able to recommend you a wine or giving you guidance. Also there is a failure in the breakfast, for that price it should stand up in quality and offering. Avoidable too. So paradores are restricted for staying and enjoying their usually astonishing locations, for the rest skip it.

Our superior room was not particularly large but quiet and comfortable with a lovely view. Staff were particularly helpful and the dinner was excellent. Breakfast was nothing special and rather expensive at 18 euros.

We do try to stay at a few Paradors during our travels in Spain, and this one is set in such a beautiful plaza. Hotel staff very friendly and got shown to our room which doesn't happen too often these days. Ate evening meal in the restaurant which was very delicious. And ample buffet breakfast No parking on site but just out side the plaza there is a free car park and short walk thru arch you can find hotel. Arch being repaired and easy to muss Parador sign!!!
