I had a lovely big room at the back of the hotel, don't be of by the car park look ahead at the lovely mountain view. Staff friendly and helpful, great coffee at the bar attached to the hotel. Best of all a huge bath that was able to fit my 6ft 2" body! Not an easy thing to find... More

Our backpack never arrived in Santiago, so after 3 days of waiting, we took a bus trip to Ponferrada to see the Templarios. After arriving by bus a local explained to us in Spanish that this was the nicest alburgue in town so we checked in! It is very close to the Templarios. We had a private bath & towels... More

Only stayed one night whilst walking the Camino de Santiago, nice hotel with nice clean rooms. Hotel has a dining room with a good set menu, also there is a snack bar adjacent where breakfast is served (not much choice pretty much a set menu). Friendly staff at the hotel the castle is almost directly opposite.

Stayed here on day 3 of our Camino trip and this hotel is more than adequate. Rather tired furniture in bedroom but lovely bath- just what you need after 6 hours walking. Staff were nice and Smiley. Breakfast good but served on lower ground floor. Evening meal good too.

Stayed a night there while walking the Camino. Close by the Templar Castle...only 50 meters away. There is a cafeteria and restaurant on the first floor. It was a clean room and bathroom. I slept well and enjoyed a chocolate croissant along with and orange juice the next morning. Located closed to the Templar Castle makes it easier to get... More

Hotel El Castillo in my opinion has earned a five star vote from me. The staff was extremely helpful and when they discovered we were pilgrims on the Camino they provided us with excellent accommodation's. The room was spacious with three beds. Looking out of the window we were right across the street from the Knight Templars Castle. What a... More

We stayed here 2 nights on our Camino. Located near the Castle, below Plaza Major, and very near the Camino route. The room was large but the beds were very hard. We had trouble sleeping unfortunately. Wifi was also unreliable & kept dropping out.
