Picos de Europa - Oviedo hotel

 :)

The 2015 Old Gits trip stayed in the Silken Monumental Naranco Oviedo

http://www.hoteles-silken.com/en/hotels/monumental-naranco-oviedo/

and we all had nothing but praise for it. A 4* quality hotel with secure parking (you have to pay a little extra for that) but with prices that are very very reasonable. It's a great base to explore both the town and the surrounding area. It's so good, the Old Gits are back there again next year.
Correct rear brake use is scientifically proven to shorten stopping distances in EVERY road situation.

Show you know what you're doing and use your rear brake!

...and not a pokey little garage for the bikes either, but a proper multi-storey car park in the basement (but with only one storey ::) )

In fairness to the pretty little girl on reception, I had booked parking spaces at a ratio of 2 bikes per space. I'll ask this year if we can have consecutive and back to back spaces as we'll definitely get more than 2 bikes per space then and still have room to get bikes at the back of spaces out.

Good thinking. As far as a 'car park' went it was waaaay above the average!
