|We stayed here twice, driving from and to Barcelona during a month in Spain. Parador Tortosa is most pleasant. It's a wonderful building in a spectacular location. The staff were uniformly helpful and courteous, from reception to dining room/cafe to accommodation. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We had dinner three times, each was very good. We also enjoyed the breakfast room, which has marvellous views. Free parking is a bonus. The walk in to the city centre takes about 20 minutes and is first-rate, alongside the River Ebro. In summary, an excellent place to stay.|

|We have stayed four times ar the Tortosa Parador on our way to southern Spain and enjoyed the rooms with a view at the city, rooms with a view at the Ebro are noisy due to a aircomachine on the groundfloor or basement. The staff at reception,bar and restaurant are friendly altough as a guest you better speak a few words of spanish. The last two years the food at the restaurant was rather poor,while three years ago they served a menu based on local plates which was exellent. The breakfast in the Parador of Tortosa is the best you can get in Spain|

|At the end of April I stayed at the parador together with a group of seven wildlife enthusiasts. The rooms were splendid, the dining hall and meals excellent and the staff friendly and welcoming. Situated above the Ebro River the commanding outlook of the location is quite spectacular, and access to the nearby Ebro Delta, where we enjoyed two days of wildlife-watching was perfect.|

|We enjoyed this hotel very much. The room and bed were comfortable, friendly and professional staff, and the location is not to be missed with its historical significance and beautiful cathedral. Each afternoon, before dinner we relaxed on the balcony enjoying the view, free wifi, and a glass of Spanish wine.|
