Very pleasant staff, nice rooms, were given an update. Good breakfast. Parking available in their own garage or right in front of the hotel. About 100 yards straight up the road we found an old-fashioned eating place serving a 3-course meal for €6 - basic but tasty and filling. At the round-a-bout near the Casino a fried chicken business was doing brisk business, we were almost sorry we couldnt eat any more. Espinho seems a lovely little place, the promenade was clean, and it seems the town is being spruced up. Good shopping streets.
