I use a rolling walker and requested and received a disabled access room. It was lovely with views over the courtyard and beyond. The room was large and easy to maneuver but as in all paradors, throw rugs were placed on the floor by the bed and are an impediment to wheelchairs and rolling walkers. However, it is easy enough...

The pleasure of staying in a castle so beautifully restored to provide every modern luxury but without spoiling the medieval experience is unsurpassed. The views are magnificent, the rooms and facilities extremely comfortable and stylish (four poster beds are enormous!) and the feeling of being surrounded by history is fantastic! We found the staff utterly delightful, the food delicious, and... More

How often do you get to stay in a castle - a real castle mind you, one that's got a history of over a thousand years. Utterly stunning views - especially from the roof terrace, and a hotel which manages to be modern and comfortable, but still feels absolutely true to its heritage. Friendly staff and a delicious restaurant -... More

We stayed at this Castle in October and were upgraded to a superior room over looking the courtyard next to the chapel. Very large room with a king 4 post bed, sitting area and large bathroom. Every modern amenity was available without loosing the historical flavor that drips from this property. The castle is on a hill overlooking the town... More

The location is every bit as stunning as other reviews here have described it. Wonderful work by whoever oversaw the integration of old (ancient) and new, and restoration vs. preservation works of the venue. The amnesties are what you could expect from a regular 4 star hotel. The staff (and by proxy, the management) however, is another story. Here is... More

The view alone is enough to warrant a stay at this hotel, apparently one of the top Parador locations, built at the ancient castle and religious site on the heights above Cardona. Fortunately the accommodation keeps up with the view, and we found the staff friendly and helpful, during our three day stay. The included buffet breakfast was quite wonderful... More

Stayed here only one night between Barcelona and Madrid, stopping at Montserrat along the way. Both were great. Make sure, if your driving, keep driving to the front entrance (follow reception sign)of the Castle to unload luggage. Some space is available for parking on top. Self guided tour of the Castle is great. Very good accommodation. The breakfast had a... More

We had a great time staying in a real castle, although it was only for one night. The hotel is located on top of a mountain, and since the bus dropped us off in town, we had a steep climb to the top. Well worth it, though. Our room was really nice with a canopy bed and we had fun... More

Such promise! The rooms are big and what you'd expect. The overall hotel is as pretty an has the air of historic opulence, but and it's a big but. The restaurant is dreadful, I have a restaurant so speak from experience. The menu was very strange and underwhelming. My husband had undercooked chicken and prawns which were off. Such a... More

Just over an hour's drive from Barcelona the castle sits above the town. There is not a lot of parking at the accommodation level of the Parador however they have no problem with you unloading at the front of reception then finding a park below. We went at the start of March which had the advantage of being out of... More
