Recent guest reviews
A little off the tourist trail but a great place to stop if travelling from Santander to the Spanish Costas or Madrid. A beautiful majestic building with fabulous central sitting area. Ideally located to explore Lerma. Rooms were large with high ceilings and cool. Fabulous stay.
excellence service, the lerma parador is beautiful, a great experience , whwn i was visit, the place has the most location in the town, very close and the city and historical site , are interesting, i recomend this hotel.
After negotiating a number of very narrow streets, we arrived in Plaza Mayor, which is definitely "mayor". The Parador dominates one side of it and parking is easy - right outside. Room was large and double aspect. Stunning views out of both the juliet balconies. Large, well appointed bathroom. Only drawback - very had mattress. Huge atrium with choice of comfortable sofas or chairs and tables; two restaurants and a bar. We chose to eat in the bistro type restaurant and had tapas which was delicious. Breakfast was served on the third floor in a series of interconnecting rooms, very tastefully furnished. Very good choice of hot and cold food. Would recommend.
When we got to the room the was an obscene amount of flies in there. I had to kill at least 20 of them, and some got away to pester us in the middle of the night. As I was whacking them with a magazine, I found in the room, the window was becoming more and more stained with blood (I kid you not). I had to close the curtains so that my girlfriend wouldn't see it. I should have asked for another room immediately. We unpacked and when to dinner. As we came back, we opened the bed and there was this little stain on the bed sheets. Ok it wasn't horrible but it wasn't going to touch my face, so what the hell I just wanted to sleep. I'd been driving for 6 hours. When we opened the rest of the bed the sheets were all stained. I went down to the reception and told the lady that was manning the front desk what had happened and she offered to give us another room. As I was already ready for bed, unpacked, and very tired, I declined and asked for the bed to be made again. To my amazement the front desk girl appears in our room with some fresh bed sheets. The 1st ones didn't fit, I had to help her refold them. She left, and came back with one that fit. To top everything off, I had to help her make the bed. I asked her if at least they would comp us the breakfast, she smiled, said sorry and walked away. When we were checking out the 2 breakfast were on the bill. This is too bad... If we were in the USA we probably wouldn't even pay for the room. But this was Spain, the place was a "Parador" once a symbol of hospitality in the country, and where I slept most of the time when I was a kid traveling with my family. Well, I'm not a kid anymore and the Parador is old and decrepit. By the way the lady from the front desk came herself to our room to make the bed, because there was no one else in the property that could do this. There were some bar staff and cooks. This brings a whole new meaning to skeleton crew at a Hotel.
The building is amazing. But it is very large and there aren't many attractions in the immediate area to fill it. The huge main lounge area (more of a ducal hall really) was only about 1/3 full on a busy Friday night at the end of July. We didn't try the main restaurant which seemed expensive, but ate twice in their bodega. Their Tapas were excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. The outside area to the bodega was a pleasant courtyard but in the July heat wasn't used during the day and the large umbrellas were never erected during our stay, which might have encouraged custom. The breakfast was mediocre in comparison with the Parador in Hondarribia visited just before, (pre-cooked eggs sitting out in a warm cabinet a low point) and the wifi reception was poor outside the main hall. In the room we only had access about 10% of the time. It also asked for the password to be re-input regularly, though in other hotels the iPad remembers it and the box to do so was ticked.
This was our first parador experience and we were very impressed. The service, cleanliness, rooms and ambience are first class. The location offers several local bars and restaurants which are all reasonably priced.
I don't know what you've done to my review but I’lI repeat. Great location , reception and room. Breakfast so so. Hot breakfast should be hot. Dinner menus poor and pricey. Ate elsewhere. What more do you want.
An awesome building originally the Dukes palace within the historic part of Lerma. We took a walk around the walls of this small city. Sunday night has only a few restaurants that are open and we found one across the square from the hotel. If you want to eat the traditional roast suckling pig you need to let the restaurant know earlier in the day. It takes several hours to slowly cook. I asked the front desk at the hotel if I could borrow an Iron but, I was told they don't lend Irons because they have a laundry service. And there was no chance of the laundry ironing a shirt on a Sunday evening. A bit of a put down and the reason we decided to eat away from the hotel that evening. They don't have a kettle in the room either. If you can let the indifference of the staff wash over you it is lovely hotel to stay in.
This was our third stay at the Lerma Parador and we will continue to visit because of its charm and location. The buffet breakfast is excellent and we love the courtyard where we always enjoy a drink and sometimes dinner.
The parador is a magnificent building as you would expect. We had a standard room overlooking the countryside with spectacular views. The room is large and has the basics amenities and toiletries. No real extras like a coffee machine etc. The rooms are very dated to the point that our room looked shabby. Dusty, heavily marked rugs. Torn bed cover. We were here one night so I did not ask to move room. The main areas were clean i.e. Bathroom, bed linens etc. It is a shame because with some investment this place could be spectacular. It has a great location on the main plaza with plenty of free parking
