8/10 Very good

An old Duke's palace converted into a hotel. Exceptionally welcoming and helpful staff. Beautiful gardens but the hotel is definitely not 5 star even though the prices are. The rooms are poorly laid out and old fashioned. The pool area is not well maintained and the pool itself is small. The hotel needs a refresh in general. It's a pity that when something is advertised as 5 starts it turn out to be a little be less than the sum of its parts.

Great hotel, worth every penny
Amazing Spanish building, looks and feels like a palace from the Renaissance era. Exquisite service, very very clean, reasonable prices and very good food. Parking is free and in a secured interior courtyard. It also have a beautifully manicured garden

Good hotel in former palace
Hotel in a palace from 18th century, very impressive garden, only bathrooms a little out of date and not matching the classic design. Very helpful staff.

10/10 Exceptional

Delightful old building built around a central courtyard. The room was large and well furnished. The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk to the town centre. Quiet area around the hotel even for rooms looking out onto streets. Secure car parking. Beautiful gardens. Wide choice of food for breakfast and interesting dinner dishes.

6/10 Good

Nice hotel but not 5 star
We stayed at the Hotel Duques de Medinaceli for two nights in September. On the plus side, parking is free and seemed very secure. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the centre and we found some lovely and inexpensive restaurants for dinner. Upon checking in, the two standard rooms we had booked were upgraded to junior suites, which was really nice. However, I think the cleaning staff hadn’t quite finished their job in one of the suites – as there was no bathmat, no bathrobes and very little toilet paper in one of our bathrooms (which were then supplied on the second day of our stay). The public areas of the hotel are a bit atmosphere-less. We found it a bit strange that you couldn’t just walk through the front door during the daytime without ringing the doorbell (maybe there is some kind of security issue we weren’t aware of?). The swimming pool is tiny (we actually walked past in on our first day, as we thought it was a garden pond), the water was a bit ‘greasy’ and there were lots of ants crawling around! Wi fi is free but kept dropping. The safe wasn’t working in one of our rooms, so we just had to take our chances with our passports and valuables during the daytime. This is not a five-star hotel by our standards in Ireland. There was no evidence of anyone senior/manager around the hotel at any time – so, while the service was certainly friendly, it was a bit slow at times (particularly the check-out on our final day).
