I booked a single room for a short overnight stay on my way to Léon. From the website it looked as though this hotel had a pool but it doesn't. The price was good though and the room was clean and welcoming. The wifi worked too. unfortunately the electronic card to open the door didn't, this meant that every time... More

This hotel is situated next to the bus station and only a hundred yards or so from the rail station, so excellent for business travellers. It's also almost on the waterfront near to the ferries. It's surrounded by bars, restaurants etc which makes up for the lack of both in the hotel. The open topped tourist bus stops at the... More

This is a well maintained good quality chain hotel. The staff are friendly and were helpful in storing our bikes and bags. The breakfast was good and the rooms clean and tidy. It is very well located for the city centre and ferry terminal - but a bit of a trek to the beaches.I would recommend staying here if you... More

Nice hotel with excellent breakfast. Near train station and Avis car rental. Wish there were more nice affordable places near the beach, but the location for this hotel was a good second best. Weird "dead animal" smell in lobby they tried to cover up with cologne. But not a major complaint. Very satisfied with this hotel!

Our experience with this hotel was perfect all along. They catered to a group of 14 people for a weekend. I could send a list of names and rooms in advance so that check-in was done in a few minutes only. Breakfasts were good, fresh drinks in the lobby during the day, useful tips on where to eat and drink,... More

Good location, walking distance to most attractions. Good ambiance. The staff very friendly and helpful. Room very big, and comfortable. Only a couple and very tight parking spaces right in front of the hotel.
