Easy to find, signposted, lots of free parking. This is a modern Parador with a few faux fittings to make it look older than it is. The room was clean and solid with a view over a courtyard to hill. Very quiet at all times. The small pool was lovely with views over the hills. It should be said that... More

Arrived at 4pm after walking 20 miles on Camino in 35 c to be to told our room was not ready. Rather unfriendly receptionist who was certainly not going to go the extra mile!! Room comfortable with good facilities, but overall very overpriced and impersonal. Breakfast was not particularly good.

A very comfortable and friendly parador. Well situated near the town centre and for touring the this area of Spain. The breakfast is excellent and the waitresses friendly and efficient. Only fault is a lack of available sunbeds when the hotel is busy and the small pool is very cold!

If you are walking the Camino then this is a real treat for a nights sleep. If you are driving around this part of Spain you could base yourself here for a couple of days and see Ponsferrada castle and other towns. Beds very comfortable, fab bathrooms, great breakfast and service . No problems with interenet and wifi.

Always try and find a Parador when I'm traveling. Makes any trip exceptional, even if the building itself is not historical. What I liked about the this parador was the attention received by the members of the staff. And there were no exceptions. Will certainly recommend this parador to any one traveling in this region.

This was different from our other Parador hotels, in that it is new and not associated with an historic building/site. It was a little off the Camino but no great distance. We were greeted with warmth by the receptionist and quickly checked into our room 221. The room was very modern and spacious. Lots of room for luggage. There was... More

We had an easy walk from Ponferrada and arrived a little bit early but there was no problem in letting us into our room. We enjoyed the comfortable lounge while the room was made ready. Our room was very comfortable and had a nice bathroom. As several others have noted the wifi was not working. I went to the main... More

Our stay required an additional, unexpected night when my wife required health attention. The staff were outstanding. Luis at the front helped arrange many details. Rosa helped with many needs in the room. All of this additional attention and service was accomplished without any fuss or difficulty. I have stayed at many hotels across the US and never received such... More

To be fair this is a really nice hotel - if I stayed here on business I'd be delighted but as part of a touring holiday in Northern Spain which included other Paradores and hotels with character this was just a bit modern and soulless. However I only have myself to blame as I booked it and mistook it's description... More
