My wife and I stayed for one night on Good Friday. The welcome and service throughout was very good, and you have the feeling of being warmly welcomed into someone's home. It is not what we would classify as being a hotel, as there are just too many personal family items all over the house. Pazo de Bentraces is very clean and comfortable, and if you like historic, old fashioned houses then it is a good place to stay. If you like modern, contemporary accommodation then stay away. It is a beautiful old building with lovely peaceful grounds. We felt the 104E B&B price we paid was slightly on the high side compared with other hotels we have stayed in in Galicia. Supper was not available, but we were directed to a local Michelin starred restaurant "A Rexidora" just 5 minutes walk away, where we had an exceptional meal for the bargain price of 64E inclusive for the two of us. This local restaurant is a real bonus of staying here. Some people will absolutely love Pazo de Bentraces and others won't, so just be clear when you book what you are booking.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This delightful 15th century Episcopal residence is in many ways the prototype of the Galician Pazo (a lodging were the kings spent at least one night). Bentraces is, in fact, strategically located on the "Route of the Romanesque". Only the noblest of materials, such as walnut, chesnut, marble and porcelain were used in the restoration, the result of wich is a continuation of the old world charm. The rooms are splendid and ample as well as being decorated with numerous fine antiques and combination of stone and wood works harmoniously. This is an excellent place for lovers of antique pieces. Outside, the grounds are beautiful and a dip in the swimming pool or a walk around the surroundings are an excellent way to relax and while away the day.Those wanting to venture a little bit further out can visit Ourense or the Galician coast nearby. The Hotel has wifi and free parking. ... more less
