We stayed at Pazo Xan Xordo on the first night of a recent visit to Galicia and wish we'd been able to stay longer. We needed somewhere near the airport and as it was the night of the big fireworks display in Santiago we didn't want to go into the city.
It turned out we made a fantastic decision. The place is close to the airport (taxi ride was 8 euros) but is very quiet. It is an old building, retaining lots of original character. The room was fine with a good bathroom.
The breakfast was the best we had all trip - freshly squeezed orange juice, jamon iberico, tarta de Santiago, tetilla and membrilla, and loads more. Enough to keep you going all day. (They don't do food other than breakfast.) There are extensive grounds with a water mill and river.
I recommend this place for anyone who needs to stay near the airport either at the beginning or end of their trip, and also for people who want to go to Santiago but don't want to stay in the bustle of the city.
The staff were very welcoming. They don't speak much English but respond well to amateurish attempts to speak Spanish.
