This was another pit stop on our drive to Portugal, and we were not disappointed . Clearly a new and modern hotel on the edge of the city it is off the beaten track and about 45 minutes walk to the city centre! We booked it to eat and sleep, and the bed was the best I've slept in ever!! Lovely large bright airy rooms with Windows that open as I'm not an air con fan! It missed a kettle to make tea though for us English !!
However, on check in the receptionist did not speak English but did her upmost to make herself clear with my very brief Spanish!! Parking is available at an extra cost under the hotel as this us a busy commercial area the cost is 8€ per night!
The let down for me was the restaurant, it never opened dispute being told it did at 8.30! So we ate in their cafeteria! You will need google translate for the menu, it us all in Spanish!! Thanks god the Internet was strong there, as it took us a while to work it out, and when we ordered the food it came quickly, efficiently and it was of good quality.
The bar was very cheap, a local pint and Coroner was €5 and the two meals were €21, so not expensive at all! The buffet breakfast was a bit basic not a lot of variety!
The only attraction in the area was McDonalds 2 minutes walk!
A very good, modern, clean hotel! Excellent value for money!
