The Parador is in a splendid position on top of the hill which formed the medieval city of Monforte de Lemos. Staff were great. The pool is small but very pleasant. Well worth walking down into the town part way down the hill one goes through the ruins (only about half the circuit in place) of the medieval town.

Gorgeous place, transports you back in time. Super friendly staff, great value, and perfect to visit the Ribeira Sacra wine region, one of the least traveled in Spain, but one of its most interesting ones too -turning out impressive, inexpensive wines. On the flip side, wi fi doesn't work well in all the rooms (though it is very good in... More

It was a long climb up the hill from the town, but well worth the effort. We were rewarded with a lovely cool restaurant, attentive staff and the most delicious selection of food - almost too much to eat, but we took it slowly!

We found this place quite endearing. Staff were attentive if slightly robotic. The main issue is that it is in need of some TLC and updating. - scuffed walls and restaurant chairs requiring a steam clean and some mould in grout lines in bathroom. We chose dinner bed and breakfast and the dinner was very good. Breakfast buffet limited and... More

Beatiful building on top of a hill that can be seen for miles around. Town of Monforte was unremarkable but the hotel was lovely. Tastefully adapted from a monastry with cloisters etc. It was a bit awkward getting the luggage from the car to the room but I guess that is to be expected in this type of building. Only... More

Stayed here one night while touring the north-west of Spain. Monforte de Lemos has little enough to commend it, if I'm honest - it's not one of those lovely old medieval towns and there's not much to see. The Parador, though, is lovely. It's visible on top of its hill from many miles away and the satnav took us straight... More

This Parador is a hidden gem in Galicia. On the top of a hill, it used to be a convent, now converted into a 4* hotel. The incredible views, the amazing staff (usual in all the Paradores I have visited) and the beautiful rooms, make of this Parador one of the most beautiful I have ever visited. The hotel is... More

Relaxation... noun - a way to rest and enjoy yourself. This hotel offers the best environment for relaxation. The views from the hotel room were outstanding. Hotel Parador provides a super breakfast and the place is immaculately clean.

Perched on a hill top this is an impressive looking Parador. There were 2 weddings in the adjacent church so obviously popular locally. Parador reception staff were very friendly and helpful recommending and booking a boat trip on embalse - River Sil. Good rooms. Small pool which we didn't use. Restaurant meal was very good with excellent local wine. There... More
