Tired, slightly grubby appearance. Woeful breakfast room like being in the basement of a 1970s civic library. All elements of breakfast failed to please -Synthetic yoghurt, a bad boiled egg and the worst coffee...in the room the mattress was reasonably comfortable but the space was cramped. Nice view from the window.

This was our first stop as we made our way to a tour of Galicia. The receptionist was so genuinely friendly that we felt she must have been an old friend who we'd forgotten. The room was charming and after visiting the Knights Templar castle in the town (5 mins walk) we ate in the town square listening to a... More

We had a nice overnight stay last week. Excellent staff and great location close to the Train Station. Ten minutes walk from the Castle and ideal location for the town centre. Room was fine but needed an update but it was fine for our stay. Clean and everything you would expect. Breakfast was simple but enough to start the day... More

This hotel looks very interesting from the outside, but disappointing inside. Rooms were an ok size but quite dated. We had a problem with our TV and phoned reception - girl arrived within 2 minutes and was extremely nice and helpful. As we were part of a group, our breakfast was served in a basement room. Coffee was terrible!

We were doing the Camino de Santiago, and decided it may be desirable to have some 4 star comfort for our night in Ponferrada. The Temple was a 4 star sewer. The stench of sewage in our room was profound. Luckily we were able to relieve the smell by opening the windows. The hotel breakfast was extremely limited, and was... More

It is not a budget hotel, however for a Hotel of its class I think I did well with the cost of my room. I had checked out a couple of city centre hotels, who for the price they wanted were not offering anything with character. Whilst this was a bit dearer than those, the hotel standard was much better.... More

The building has an interesting design dating back to the sixties with an impression of a mini castle. The rooms were dated and in need of an upgrade. Unfortunately our strongest impression was of stale cigarette smoke in our rooms. The staff were helpful, its biggest plus was its closeness to the town and shops.

The 4 stars are undeserved. Really. When I asked for the price of the single room, I was surprised it was 55 € for a four star, I thought it was maybe due to low season and weekday rate. The room is ugly, but very much in the old Castilian style, so I thought, OK, I do not share the... More

The best thing i could say about The Temple Hotel would be that it is conveninently located to the RENF train station. This hotel was disappointing being my first night on the Camino. Expecting something somewhat romantic and charming but the description of its interior decoration i found something a little sad and dreary that would benefit from more lighting.... More
