This Parador was an amazing first stop on our trip through Spain. It was a bit more expensive than we are accustomed to paying for a hotel but the accommodations were worth the price. The view from our room was amazing, looking out over the town and the historic glass factory. The reception desk was excellent and even though I speak Spanish fluently, the receptionist spoke in perfect English so that the whole family could understand. Parking was easy for unloading in front of the entrance and then the parking lot was less than a block away with plenty of spaces. Breakfasts were excellent with a wide variety of choices to suit everyone's taste. We also opted for the half board option and thoroughly enjoyed the meals there. Our first meal was lunch outside and the following day we had a wonderful dinner inside the restaurant. The restaurant staff were all very professional and friendly. My only regret was that it was cold and rainy when we visited in July so we did not have the chance to use the pool. The rooms were very clean with modern amenities and the baths were excellent. Plenty of hot water. The attractions within walking distance were wonderful. The gardens and fountain show and the palace tour are a must. Make sure you get to see a fountain show, which only ran once a day at 1700 hours when we were there. The glass factory is also worth the visit. These are all within a very short walk of the Parador. Also within the small town of La Granja are all of the necessities. Plenty of restaurants and bars, small shops, a bank, grocery store, etc. Segovia is a 20 minute drive and is an obligatory visit if you are staying at La Granja.

Enjoyed our brief stay in the interesting ancient village. Staff were very congenial. However, parador is over-priced as only luke warm water when showering. Also disappointed that we were unable to utilise the pool early morning as not "open" until 1100 hrs.

A very enjoyable stay service excellent and restaurant staff were some of the best I have seen. Parking at the top of the road not ideal however a quiet setting so not a problem the room was as I expect in a parador. I would recommend this hotel and will stay again

Enjoyed a very pleasant stay at this wonderful Parador and the almost next door Historic Palace and Versailles style gardens were a surprise bonus. The facilities at this Parador are great with a lovely spa and great restaurant. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and breakfast was everything one needed. Great parking and very easy to reach the hotel; with Segovia a few kilometres away this is a lovely place to stay in a very beatiful area. Our only disappointment was the hotel bar which was rather functional and not in keeping with rest of the property.
