Love the hotel. Excellent finish, rooms etc. Love the food. Excellent fresh from the market ingredients prepared to show off the main ingredients quality not some unnecessary saucing.

What a lovely place is Hotel Puerta Gamboa. The rooms are clean and comfy, the beds are good and so is the location, but what made this experience really great is the hospitality of the owners.

We had the best experience in this family owned hotel during our 4 day stay in Galicia. The owners are helpfull and will response to any requests you might have. They even let us use their jackets when we planned a boat trip in Ponteverde area and prepared breakfast at 6:00 so we don't leave hungry in the morning. If...

Nando & his dad were so welcoming and kind to us and our 3 kids. The food and the welcome was just above & beyond any expectation, great breakfast, great location, they renovated the hotel so rooms are nice & comfy - the guys spoke great English. Nando's dad is very handsome :) We'd love to go back some day.

I spend more time in hotels around the world than I do my own home. I can't say enough about this hotel and in particular the owners Jose, Fernando and family. They truly made some very stressful days of work dissolve with their exceptional hospitality, amazing food and genuine personalities. It offers a great location, clean and charming rooms but...

We stayed here overnight as a last minute decision and were really pleased with everything about this hotel. We'd had a long day driving and it was nice to be greeted by the owner who helped us with our bags and let us into the room. We quickly realised that we had left our passports at the previous hotel and...

Fernando, Josz, and family are the best hosts! Fernando speaks very good English for us Americans; Fernando went over and above helping us arrange our next places to stay and back pack transportation. Our room was very comfortable, and tasteful, very inviting. The hotel is a wonderful mix of the old and new construction and is located very close to...

I'd echo everything about the charm, location and exceptionally friendly service. This would be a perfect hotel but if your room is in the front as ours was, the noise from the bar next door is awful. We used our earplugs and I took a sleeping pill. Also there are two lights over the door to the room so it's...

We stayed here for two nights in August when the hotel was quiet. The hotel owners were extremely welcoming and very willing to give good restaurant recommendations or ideas for activities. As the hotel was quiet, we were given a selection of rooms which was very accommodating and the rooms were all very tastefully decorated. The hotel is in a...
