A busy out of town hotel. It could have been a nice half hour stroll by the river to the town if the local council hadn't given up providing a path halfway. Unless you had a car you were more or less cut-off by surrounding major roads although a taxi (£8-10) was an easy option to the town centre. The rooms were nice although disappointing not to have tea/coffee facilities. A bath was very welcome though. Hotel bar was more of a pub/cafe style although well supported. Outside seemed to be populated by heavy machinery/lorries which were often heard manoeuvring around.
Hotel is a tastefully converted historical building that has great ambiance in a central location of the old part of town. The staff were terrific, helpful, and reasonably fluent with English. It is close to "The Way" and churches and you see pilgrims everyday, some of whom stay in this hotel. Wonderful family oriented nightlife with music in the squares with families eating their evening meals. Very close to the area with many Tapas Restaurants: each one with its own speciality.
