    The bed was not comfortable at all, I never understand why a hotel would not prioritize the quality of the mattress. I woke up each morning with my back hurting. Also there was no pool or gym.

    Staff had trouble with basic English. Front desk woman told us to head to the left as we exited the hotel to obtain our credentials for the Camino and we actually should have turned right. We were delayed for quite some time as we found our way back. The staff was however, very pleasant.

    We did not understand the heating system in the room. IT WAS TOO HOT. We tried and tried to get a lower temperature, but it did not work. Behind the beautiful curtains we were able to open a window to be able to sleep. There is no lift (elevator) to get down to the bar/cafetería. I had to walk around the building to get there because I have problems with walking upstairs and downstairs due to an illness.

    Very clean. Seemed to be newly painted. Nicely decorated. A perfect bathroom - equipped with all needed amenities. All staff very friendly. In average a nice hotel.

    Nothing. Everything was as described.

    Arrived on a Saturday around 1300. The staff spoke English and they were very helpful particularly with my travel plans about the Camino Ingles especially where to go and get a stamp for my credential from the Tourist Office at the Waterfront. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the bus station which is a bonus and not far from the Camino Ingles path. The room that I stayed in was very clean and quiet. I really enjoyed the early breakfast as I had a long walk the next day. There is a supermarket about 5 minute walk from the hotel which is an added bonus.

    The room was nice and bathroom lovely but the carpet was really awful, badly stained in room 422. It let the whole stay down as I would have stayed again but not wih that carpet. Also a strong curry smell in the corridor which was very odd. Dinner was not until 9pm. Most northerneuropean tourists eat between 7 and 8 at latest. It wasnt nice to wait untill 9pm even though spanish people eat very very late. If you want international tourists change dinner to 7.30 or 8 at latest

    F|errol is a dump and the Gran Hotel looks like a standard corporate mid-range hotel. But, it's cheap, has staff who try (even if their English is not that special sometimes), has enough local custom in the restaurant to have some character and does all the basic things well. An excellent option if you find yourself in Ferrol.
