Reviewed 23 January 2017

Been here twice... 20 years apart! Still a reasonable option to sleep comfortably and have a good meal. Average rooms, wi-fi working ok. Underground parking lot charged apart. Walking distance from commercial streets and the old city center.

Made a stop here on the Camino to get god night sleep. And the concept of being an old place for knights, fitted in pretty well I think. The bed was nice, the shower was also. I can recommend everybody to make a stop here.

I can't believe that this was in the same chain as our last hotel! The service and room were vastly better, the food was good and was served punctually! The staff and management took a pride in the hotel, with its mediaeval ambience. A really pleasant stay. Well done! There's life in the old chain yet!

This place looks like the 80s interpretation of a medieval fortress. Rooms are simple, air comdition works, but with no target temperature, breakfast is very simple. Unfortunately, it is quite a walk from the castello and the hisorical town (about a kilo,eter). On the other hand, it is cheap, clean, and everything works. Yet, nothing spectacular.

Good value and good location just off the camino and 500 metres from bus station. Medieval ambiance and comfortable rooms. Pilgrims dinner worth having if not venturing out. If your feet are ok after your days walk it is worth a visit to the old square next to the castle.

Whilst some may like this hotel for its atmosphere and decor I found the faux medieval ambience rather oppressing and the room somewhat cell-like with a television that just did not behave as it should. It took ages to find a way of selecting television rather than radio programmes which kept appearing pictureless on the screen. It is quite a...

When our group arrived at this hotel they had nothing prepared for our meal even though the hotel had been informed in advance at what time we would arrive and the number in our group. We had to wait about 2 hours for what was terrible food. The staff were grumpy and appeared as if they didn't want to be...

Tired, slightly grubby appearance. Woeful breakfast room like being in the basement of a 1970s civic library. All elements of breakfast failed to please -Synthetic yoghurt, a bad boiled egg and the worst coffee...in the room the mattress was reasonably comfortable but the space was cramped. Nice view from the window.

This was our first stop as we made our way to a tour of Galicia. The receptionist was so genuinely friendly that we felt she must have been an old friend who we'd forgotten. The room was charming and after visiting the Knights Templar castle in the town (5 mins walk) we ate in the town square listening to a...

We had a nice overnight stay last week. Excellent staff and great location close to the Train Station. Ten minutes walk from the Castle and ideal location for the town centre. Room was fine but needed an update but it was fine for our stay. Clean and everything you would expect. Breakfast was simple but enough to start the day...
