This showed up in my inbox the other day: https://www.elcaminoconcorreos.com/en/accommodations

It appears to be published by Correos, and from the few towns I sampled seems to be pretty comprehensive. If it is as good as it seems to be it will be a very useful tool for planning. I'd welcome some reviews from fellow peregrinos.

Seems to be no mention of Parroquial; Donativo and other non-commercial Albergues. Perhaps not surprising as most will not accept pack-transfer deliveries. I noted the assumption that the Camino Frances starts in Sarria - though to be fair if you search say "Burgos" you get a fine list of hotels.

I think I'll stick with Brierley; Wise Pilgrim; Gronze; and, Berking.com in desperation.

Most years since 2012. Hoping now for 2022.
There are quite a few organizations/companies/individuals, etc. that maintain lists of albergues as guidebooks, phone apps, or stand-alone lists. The real question now is which of these can update the information efficiently post-pandemic!

I just randomly looked at the Camino Con Correos information for the VDLP. The accommodations do include albergues parroquial, but they all seem to be listed in random order, so it is very hard to use. The Albergue de Peregrinos de Alija del Infantado is included, but I thought it had closed even before Covid.

The Correos listing does include many of these, but they are all called "hostels" in the English version. So, it is sometimes hard to know what is meant. For Roncesvalles, it didn't include the albergue, which is a major omission!

For planning stages and looking at options on my phone or computer, I find that Gronze provides a very simple overview of the stages and lodging options. I also like the Brierley maps, if available for the route. For less popular routes, the local camino association combined with a hotel booking app is often the best source.

No question that Gronze is the best resource because it lists bars and coffee shops along the way as well. But I like the fact that the Correos site has pix and info on accommodations for quick reference.
