not sure if remarked on previously but Casa Tomas in Xunqueria is apparently burnt out. Xunta hostel comfy and equipped kitchen though.
Also Municipal in A Laxe is closed. There are several pensiones etc before but you must book ahead. We ended up taking taxi into Lalin to Hotel Paliccio who gave us a pilgrim discount and were very kind. The taxi driver arranged to take us back to the Camino where we'd left off next morning too.

Thank you, I have made notes in my Kelly guidebook in case I decide to walk that way and not the Invierno. But very sad as both were apparently new ventures.

For anyone else on the Sanabrés who has to go into Lalín for the night because of closings, you should know that if you have the time, there is an easy way to walk from Lalín to A Laxe. Lalín is on the Camino de Invierno, and there is a marked river path, followed by a not so pleasant walk around the Lalín industrial park, but the distance to A Laxe is only 6 km, so a cab may be more hassle than it's worth.

More detail on that part in the forum guide to the Invierno: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/com...nvierno-2017-edition.535/download?version=435
