Stayed one night on our way back to France. Expected a charming old castle not a concrete repro on the edge of a very busy National highway. Our gloomy room reeked of tobacco and were offered the choice of at least 5 others which all smelled the same. The view from the balcony was of a huge truck stop and restaurant on the other side of the road. the nightmare continued when we asked for a table in the restaurant only to hear it was closed on Sundays! Took a drive around and found nothing so risked life and limb to cross the major highway to join the truckers for dinner which in fact was not bad. After a sleepless night battling with door closed and bad smell or door open and the soothing sound of lorries hurtling along at 90 Kms!
Despite all we were looking forward to the inclusive buffet breakfast but oh no, we were ordered to sit on stools at the bar and given coffee and croissant. We then spotted the chef and promptly asked for egg and bacon which was freshly cooked and delicious
Disturbing the receptionist from playing Candy Crush, we did complain about room only to be told they had a big wedding the day before and everyone smoked in the no smoking rooms.
To sum up, as I stand on my balcony among the cigarette ends watching the lorry drivers fill their flasks, am I being unfair to the hotel or could I possibly have been stupid enough to book this!!
Don't make the same mistake as there are many wonderful hotels in Spain for less than the 80 Euros we paid
