Arrival was straightforward as hotel is not far from motorway and, although situated in an unprepossessing industrial centre, quick to find. initial impressions were good: safe parking, quiet, and clean together with a welcoming and efficient check-in. The room (for two and dog) was small but had TV (lots of channels), phone and free Wifi which worked without fuss.
The cite is about a five (max) minute drive and the hotel staff provided map, guidance as to car parks, etc. This is a good budget hotel to use as quick stay or a base to explore the area.
The only blot on (my) escutcheon was the relatively (9.50 euros) breakfast with (very) good coffee but nothing much that appealed to me: bread, pastries in abundance but....
In short, a good hotel made better by an unfailingly happy and helpful staff.
