Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Brittany Ferries package. The hotel is just across the road from the ferry port in the centre of Santander. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The hotel had a great selection for breakfast. The staff spoke good english and the rooms were large, clean with great views. We are going to stay here again next year.

We stayed her after we came off the ferry from Portsmouth before our long drive south. It is literally opposite the port and takes minutes to drive or walk to. Hotel is excellent, modern and very clean. Has a great cafe bar and has really secure parking which is extra but worth it.

A few weeks ago, we spent two nights at this hotel. Its location could not be better, close to the bus and train stations, across the street from the cathedra,l and within walking distance of many places of interest.. Our room did not have a sea view, but the night views of the cathedral were very enjoyable. The hotel has a very modern design and decoration, and our room was relatively large, well appointed, fitted with all modern conveniences, and very clean and quiet. The breakfast buffet was also excellent, with lots of selections all of high quality. Unfortunately, our visit to Santander was rather short, but we managed to enjoy and look at all the sites of our interest. This place and the hotel are worth a second visit. We had two main meals while in Santander and both were at the Restaurant of this hotel. The maître was extremely friendly, gentle and very accommodating to all our wishes. We don't have enough words to praise the food quality and preparation, everything we tried in our meals was excellent. I must also add that the menu of the day represented excellent value. As a final note and as an added recommendation, I would like to say that the chocolate and churros we twice enjoyed at the bar were just great. In my opinion, nobody heading for Santander should stay at Hotel Bahia. You are very likely to be pleased.

We booked this hotel as our ferry crossing was arriving early evening and we had a long drive to follow. In the event, the ferry was three hours late and we did not reach the hotel until after 10.00 pm. We had an initial problem as I did not realise that you had to pre-book the car park and it was full. However the helpful staff did point me in the direction of a public underground car park a few moments away. Our room was very comfortable and well equipped. As we were so late arriving we did not use the restaurant for dinner but the menu looked very interesting. Breakfast next morning was good and the coffee excellent. All the staff were helpful and attentive. The hotels central position makes it very handy for the ferry and inward/onward connections. We would certainly use it again.

Right opposite the ferry terminal so very convenient for the boat, and well located in terms of the town centre. Well finished but very bland. Basic breakfast in cafeteria OK with good coffee. Car park won't accept larger vehicles but public parking literally metres away.

Stayed here by choice, for a touch of luxury to end a trip around Spain staying in less expensive hotels. A good decision. The room was smart and and very comfortably appointed, with good beds and quality fabrics. Sound proofed windows and comfortable air conditioning. The furniture and fittings had clearly been renovated during a refit a few years ago. The bathroom was wonderful, with a lovely big bath and good shower, marble fittings and big mirrors plus thick towels and decent bathing toiletries. Skipped the pricy breakfast at around 15.00 € and opted to eat very well priced local cafes. Probably the only decent seafront city centre hotel. Very impersonal and not very friendly. Used a lot for corporate seminars etc.

We stayed here for one night in September. Our room was fabulous it was so big and the bed was super comfortable Bathroom very large with many toiletries Excellent location close to the water front. Nearby was all the shops bars and restaurants. You can park on the street for a few hours or use hotel car park

After 2 weeks of walking the Camino de Santiago, we stopped in Santander for a couple of days - and stayed here. We upgraded to a small suite, which was superb - more space than we needed, and great views of both the city, and the harbour. Very clean hotel, reception staffed 24x7, and a cafe and separate restaurant in the hotel.

What a hotel, very upmarket, decor beautiful, spacious, very clean, staff helpful, the room was breath taking, very large and spacious, huge wardrobes, full window so that we could enjoy the fantastic view, although a road was just outside our hotel, it was hardly noticeable, the port was just on our doorstep, well not quite, but the view, the sea and mountains were fantastic. The beds were large singles, but comfortable, the bathroom was so spacious, wow and talk about toiletries, they supplied everything from comb/brush to shavers, i have never known a hotel to provide so much. Breakfast was an experience in itself, fresh food meats, fruit, cakes and freshly squeezed orange juice, and even though the hot drinks were from a machine they were lovely, breakfast was top notch. We had our lunch in the outdoors but from the hotel, talk about value for money, and so fresh and enjoyable, the staff were polite and courteous at all times, a hotel that is truly a step above the rest and worth a visit.

A big hotel, but access straightforward for wheelchair users. We pre-booked a disabled room through an agency (Keytel) and weren't disappointed. Room was a very good size, on the 8th floor (hopefully no fire alarm!), so no problem with noise. Bathroom also a good size, with a bath and a separate 'wet room' area as shower. My wife was quite happy. We travel with an old-fashioned rubber mat, in case the tiles are at all slippery. For convenience we ate there - quite good. The only downside was that their underground car park was full (some sort of party) but extra parking is very near, although not particularly cheap.
