    Guadalajara isnt much of a place, but you could do the same plan from Toledo or Segovia!

    Segovia was on my list for last year.

    Yes, it's on my list too! I've been to Toledo but not to stay and the ring road with the famous view over the city is worth the detour as they say, but accommodation there can be phenomenally expensive!

    You had me hooked until "expensive" appeared!

    I think it's nit too bad in the city itself, but the 'ring-road' where that image was taken fom is lined with f***-off hotels that charge a fortune for the views - evenings a speciality!

    I think that's where the Parador is. Hardly cheap, but not particularly expensive either.

    Toledo is another one on a list. Expensive? Pah!
    By the end of this, money will be no object (I'm squirrelling away my 'going out' cash that I estimate I'd spend in normal times into a travel fund..)

    Picking a random day in June, 140Euros for room only, 250 Euros for half board (for two). And it'll be fantastic food too.

    A bit more expensive than most Paradores, but not much. If the exchange rate picks up between now and then it might be more reasonable.

    €110 for two breakfasts and two evening meals - well beyond my budget! - or rather for that money I'd have a tapas crawl around Madrid or Barcelona, tickets for a jazz club live gig, cocktails by night and hot chocolate with churros from a street vendor as the sun comes up. And as I might be doing this with someone else's wife I'd get her to pay!

    Paradores aren't for those on a budget and I completely agree that your night out sounds great (apart from a jazz club live gig!). But for having three courses of food and stumbling back to your room really uncomfortably full, you can't beat a them. Also, you'll probably be better prepared for the next day's ride afterwards.
    I'm tired of giving a reason when the future is what we believe in.
