A stopover in a rather uninteresting naval port and shipbuilding centre. Parking was relatively easy in the square at the hotel. The lunch was reasonable and the room was nice. Pretty average overall.
Marta at the frint desk is a gem. She eas so helpful and Juan in the dining room remembered what everyone wanted after the first day. A good base to explore the area and with a maps app, easy to find.
Small hotel, nice inside in the public areas. Unfortunately the rooms need some renovation. The bathroom is very small and not comfortable, the room size is OK, but quit old. The breakfast hall is very nice and the windows faces the sea. The breakfast itself is not rich and the coffee is bad. After all - a quit modest hotel, good service and very friendly staff.
The staff at the reception desk was friendly (warm welcome) and efficient. My wish for an extra pillow, the change of a broken lamp in the bathroom and a map of the city plus extra info were completed very quickly. Wining and dining in the restaurant and the tapas in the cafetaria are very good. A great compliment for the waiter Carlos Olivera. He is friendly and works very, very hard. Our room was big, clean with a beautiful view on the port. In the evening of September 26th, 20 people were in the cafetaria and a full restaurant. The only waiter for the restaurant and the cafetaria was Carlos Olivera. This was impossible for only one person to handle. A very great point of attention for the director Mr. José Antonio Cedena Teodosio. After our check out we discussed this incident with him and it has its attention. I really hope so, because this evening was not an advertisement for Paradores.
we stayed here as a very convenient place from which toast off on the Camino to Santiago. It was ideal for the purpose being located centrally and next to the sea front. We have stayed here before on similar trips, and it lived up to our expectatons in every department. The rooms are a good size and well maintained with good quality fittings in the bathroom,the reception staff were very helpful, and the food was excellent. However, on the nights we were there, the high spot was the single waiter in the bar and resaturant. It was hard to see how one man could do so much so well - he deserves a pay rise!
We usually like to visit at least one Parador in our trips to Spain. This one is unusual and is a converted former naval building with views over naval dockyards and ships. Our room looked into a courtyard and was really quite dark with just one relatively small window. But that is the style of the building. Unfortunately ours had a distinct smell of cigarette smoke but this was efficiently changed to one without problems although similarly dark. The breakfast and dining room was superb as was the breakfast and it was good to see particular emphasis on gluten free dishes although we did not need this provision. Ferrol may appeal to those with an interest in ship building and naval history but otherwise it has an air (not unpleasant) of a place having seen better days -perhaps due to naval decline.
Stayed here one night. Very nice hotel. Great public rooms. Hotel is older but very clean. Would stay here again. Good location. Very good service by the hotel staff. Restaurant is excellent. Breakfast was outstanding. Great value!
Ferrol is an interesting town and the Parador provides a perfect base to explore the local streets, maritime port, restaurants and cafes. Our suite (room 117 ) was much larger than we expected and the staff very welcoming. We are happy with this hotel, paradors which keep on delivering local surprises with an understated traditional consistency.
If you go into a Paradores expecting a Hilton, IHG type chain you will be disappointed. Paradores are uniquely Spanish a little dull, a little dusty and with a perception of age. The latter is because they are all very old. They are not "international" except maybe for breakfast, they are very Spanish. The restaurants are always superb with authentic Spanish style food, not paella or pizza. The rooms are smart clean and fully equipment. The restaurant has excellent food but odd as enclosed in a small room with no windows, but .... Excellently placed within walking distance of harbour with views of the Spanish Navy! If you are touring Spain and want to feel Spanish these are the places to stay.
Convenient to visit the places surrounding el Ferrol. Rooms were clean but too short for a Parador. The place was well kept and the place was adequate to sightseeing "la ría del Ferrol", the arsenal and the coast near el Ferrol with nearly empty beaches. Just that convenient nothing special.
