This Parador is another excellent place to stay.
Sympathetically restored and as you walk around and you can almost feel centuries of history and tradition soaking in to you.
Very impressive.
Did not dine as our experience of Parador food has not been great so no comment on that.
Very small criticism what was an otherwise excellent stay -
I guess housekeeping need to sharpen up a bit?

Mini bar poorly stocked
Only one small bar of soap
Batterys missing from TV remote control
Only two tissues in the tissue box
The intriguing history of the monastery was only shown in Spanish in the public areas and in the bedrooms, shame because we spent ages with our dictionary trying to understand the history.

Lovely atmosphere sets a great backdrop for good food and wine in the Parador's restaurant. Parador menu offers regional food and wine at a reasonable price with efficient helpful,service.

I had the pleasure to taste the suggestion of the day from the weekend menu. Migas was the entree and Pork solomillo with moustard sauce as main couse were the proof that the simple and traditional food, well prepared, is simply the best.

In the basement there is another/second restaurant specializing in "cocido" a typical Spanish dish that is different depending on the region. The one offered in this place is made in a very traditional way, different from the typical one served in Madrid. It is modestly priced at €20 per person and comes with a dessert but drinks are not included (there is an alternative menu a bit more expensive that comes with mineral water and wine) Basically you first eat the soup, then the meats with the chickpeas and vegetables as a second course.

I have been in several "cocido" restaurants and though this might not be the "best one" I have ever tried I must say it is very good one and different. I consider it a daring move from the hotel as this is a very traditional dish and most likely you will not find this elsewhere. In this restaurant they only serve cocido. This is a heavy winter dish and typically for lunch, too heavy for dinner.

The people are friendly and polite. If you go to the reception desk they will show you to the hotel parking, for a small additional cost. It might be something to consider as the town is small and has almost no parking areas and most cars need to park outside of town, with the usual long walk. The location is perfect, right at the entrance of the famous plaza. Seating is traditional as well, old fashioned castillian style tables and chairs. These have never been very comfortable but for such a dish, that can be considered medieval, it probably has to be this way. Recommended!

We always had good food and service at the Paradores, our lunch at this Parador this time was disappointing, the service was unusually disagreeable, particularly the older waitress, the smell of paint or barniz was too strong for anyone to enjoy lunch.
