    Bath area getting a tad weary.

    Nice hotel right on a plaza. A bit difficult to get to but underground parking for my motorcycle a big bonus. Free too. Excellent breakfast. Would stay here again.

    The place could use an update. It’s pretty dated. But if you, like me, are just looking for a great nights sleep and a hot shower, this place is wonderful!

    The girl who checked me in was just the sweetest, so welcoming and helpful when an issue arose. The rest of the staff that I met was exceedingly kind as well. The breakfast was amazing, good coffee, even eggs and bacon! And the view from my room to the mountains and the square - beautiful.

    - Isn’t a complaint, but just a suggestion. The soap on the bathroom is bad quality, I understand due it low rate price, but maybe would be better increase a little and offer something better.

    - For a 2 stars hotel, his structure is good x his benefit cost. - The breakfast is simple, but good.

    The hotel is old and needs a refurb, but it's very cheap so can't expect all the trimmings. Served it's purpose very well.

    Excellent value for money. You get what you pay for. We paid €42 per night B&B for this 2 star hotel, so I had zero expectations. I found the reception staff very helpful and friendly in letting us know how to get there from Porto. The town is an industrial town, we stopped here as we had a wedding 10 mins away, otherwise, we'd have no reason to visit this town. Staff very good.
